Just picked this up for a fiver and it suprised the hell out of me. I guess I missed the hype on Mr. Bucci, if there was any. Apparently he is from the Chilean axis of evil that counts Luciano and Villalobos among its members. You can hear the connection in the programming in a couple of the trackes for sure. Lovely polyrhythms and a deep understanding of the psychedelic mindset.
This track kind of reminds me of what Dexter might have sounded like if it were influenced by deep house more than techno.

Like the Bucci track above, some recent tunes have really been opening up my appreciation for space within the confines of techno. The recent Carl Craig remixes are unreal. The Delia and Gavin track is good but I think the Theo Parrish I talked about here last month is just as strong and both are so wide open. The mood is so blissful.
Speaking of Villalobos here is an oldey but goody that reminds me of West Coast deep house a lot.
