An absolutely outstanding album, I love it. Fill 17 is one of the greatest electronic pieces of all time.

I haven't played this CD in years, and was surprised that listening to it now just how good it sounds. The style had moved on from the previous album "Ginger", and in places is very reminiscent of Orbital from this era. For me this is definitely a standout electronic album from this period.

This is an absolute classic album. I have the vinyl stored away and listened to this for the first time in years recently. Just reminded me why i loved it so much back in the day. This wonderfully diverse and atmospheric album is a great piece of art by a fantastic producer. The oil zone is up there with my all time favourite electronic tunes. Nice one Speedy J!

Am absolute gem of an album. It might not have had the high profile of his early 12" releases, or of 'Ginger', but this is an accomplished, atmospheric and beautiful piece of work from beginning to end. I love the building intro to 'The Oil Zone'.

It's more introspective than 'Ginger', probably because Jochem Paap had just been severely ill before writing it. A bit more rough-edged in places than his debut: heavy use of dub-influenced delay, and some of the beats are quite crunchy, but nothing like his later material. If you see it going cheap on ebay, snap it up.

This highly awaited (and provocatively named) second album output from Speedy J in early 1995 was another ground breaking release, not only for the vibrantly diverse international house and techno dance scene that literally ate it up, but as a heralded step for an electronic dance artist to actually span the test of time and release 2 complete and heroically received albums (as well as many 12" eps and remixes) within a 4 year period. Few other dance producers could lay claim to such an achievemnet so early on.

Besides his uniquely marketed (and extremely lovable) ethereal composition style of swirling electronic nebulae like layers suspended over rubbery beats and breaks and infused with a bright spectrum of coloured, interchanging melodies, 'G-Spot' is a concrete testament to the early magical imagination of the techno genre, becoming in a certain way, what i would call the re-incarnation of disco or maybe better put, the multi-facetted, prodigious, progeny of disco married with the early 70's new aged vibe of Kraftwerk / Art of Noise / Jean Michel Jarre.

But for me, aside from the continued magnificence of the production, sound quality and story telling composition, G-Spot signals a sharp turning point in Jochem Paap's career. Firmly,(and well deservedly) in the international spot light, Jochem includes three monstrously beautiful and completely astounding ambient landscapes smack-dab in the middle of his 'dance' album! 'Fill 25', 'Lanzarote'... slow molasses-like liquids of melody; bubbling crevices of sulfur-methane, on some distant moon of Jupiter or Saturn. And 'Extruma', an intensely tripped out, inner journey composition built on sub frequency delayed sound pans and bright 'ping' & 'pong' sparks reminiscent of atmosphere inducing halogen or neon tubing lights.

gorgeous. and ground breaking.

For those that sought out, collected and marveled at the intricate beauty of electronic ambient music ala 'Seefeel', early 'Autechre', and 'Beaumont Hannant' make sure to seek out and give this album the listen it is due...

i give this album a 5 out of 5. Thank you Jochem!
