Just found the video for one my favourite tracks ever. Recorded in 2000 by Detroit's DJ Rolando. Seminal techno that also managed to cross over into the wider underground world and establish itself as a modern electronic classic. I was lucky enough to meet Rolando himself in Edinburgh where he now lives with his wife. Got very excited and wasn't very cool about the whole thing! The track still gets me.

I also found a cover of the track by classical pianist Maxence Cyrin who recorded a whole album - Modern Rhapsodies - of electronic music covers including Aphex Twin's 'Windowlicker', Gusto 'Disco's Revenge' and Sabres of Paradise ' Smoked Belched II' on his piano. Even LFO 'LFO'!! Is that not sacrilege? Check it out.
