@ Funkwidit_How could it be a big shame on me if, A/ I never had a full label copy of the Incognito Version? I only ever saw less then 5 white labels of the original. B/ It was released on Sonic Groove when Discogs was first starting out so this data was not available yet on here. C/Kevin Saunderson did not include Marty's credits on the DAT Tapes notes. Also if you look up the Incognito white label it says Kevin Sanderson Powerbass printed on a sticker affixed to the release which is why I released it as Kevin Saunderson and not as E-dancer as this was how I always knew of it. Kevin also didn't tell me to release it as E-dancer. Also to take it one step even further only 32 users have the full Incognito label copy versus nearly 200 who have the Incognito white label "Kevin Sanderson"-Powerbass version which goes to show the label copy is very rare. So before trying to call me out on something do your research properly. Shame on you for that! Now maybe you'll want to delete this comment of yours.

A big shame on Sonic Groove / Adam X for not crediting Powerbass co-writer, producer and mixer Marty Bonds.

First off Sonic Groove is not a re-release label. Their are almost 40 releases on the label. Only 5 releases on the label are
of re-releases of old school classics. The rest are of original unreleasesd recordings. I re-released this record because it was extremely difficult to obtain when it was released in 1991 and only existed on white label. Being a diehard Saunderson fan it was a honor for me to have a record of his on my label. This was the record I chose. It was not about money but hommage to someone who had a profound impact on me musically.

Sonig Groove is one of these "re-release labels" (like S12 etc.)which purpose is to publish old skool classics again and again. Sure, mostly the reason for an artist to publish here is to earn more money for their older works. But there is nothing bad in it because every artist has the RIGHT to commercialize his OWN works as far as he/she would like it. The really important question is: HOW does commercialize someone his/her tracks? A lot of musicians give their excellent works free for mading mainstream-coverversions of it for the masses. Mutilated and not to recognize from the original any more and presented by an artist which is casted by an major! Or you go the way of Kevin Saunderson. He already had great success in 1988 with Paris Grey as "Inner City": "Big Fun" and "Good Life" were sellers with millions of copies. On the other side he has never forgotten his roots and makes great productions as "E-Dancer" ("Banjo!") and "Kreem" for the underground music culture. For me that is a compromise between the "overground" and the "underground" whatever that two terms may significance...

I don't understand the purpose of this mix. Kevin Saunderson wrote this circa 1992 or 1993, and it sounds just like alot of Detroit releases of that time with the stringed synths, but it has a huge bassline that isn't all that great. I can't recommend this record at all. It looks to me like Kevin Saunderson was trying to make a little cash off of his name with this release. If you want something good from Kevin, I would suggest going somewhere else.
