In 2004 the ambitioned Dutch label Groove Unlimited released the single C8H10N4O2 (the chemical formula for caffeine) featuring a seven minute track of the same name by Jerome Froese. Opposed to his former solo releases that were released under his pseudonym TDJ Rome, the single was labelled with his own name now, and the music is much more in the style of recent Tangerine Dream albums (especially those of the Dream Mixes series like DM 4) than his former solo works. This track was a good example of the music to be expected on his first full length album Neptunes that was finally released in late 2005.


The single was originally intended to accompany a concert of Jerome Froese and Ulrich Schnauss (who already appeared on the compilation Unpleasant Poems under his pseudonym Ethereal 77) on October 30th, 2004 in Eindhoven. It was announced as Two From Berlin, including Ulrich Schnauss' composition A Million Miles Away (7:10) following C8H10N4O2. Unfortunately, the concert had to be cancelled due to the fact that Ulrich Schnauss broke his hand, and the originally planned two-track single was finally replaced by C8H10N4O2.
