Frankfurt Tanzt is a astonishing cd. It is sponsored by 'Media Markt' that is in Germany
one of the biggest electronic department store chains. The cd has a very basic artwork
but after the first letdown I liked it more and more just because of this.
The releasing time must be near 1993 because there is no track from 1994.
The very special thing with this cd is the visible impression and the very high level
quality of each track appearing on this compilation. The first track is wall of bassgroove
and shows that it is a monster - From the very beginning. You can hear extremly rare
productions of Dietz and Beyer as Multicore with a Milk-Club - Breakbeat-Rave-Mayhem;
a track like Pet Shop Boys 1993 on Ecstacy...
This is a bridge to the early sound of Force Inc: Space Cube comes with the original
version of 'Message', a warm, ravy and groovy acid track again with those powerful breakbeat
drumlines and crazy vocal samples. One of the kings of the underground rave producers,
not for nothing Force Inc releases are such well known to us. Space Cube: Some tracks
like Italo Dance Music has sex with Techno House: Progressive old school energy.
On 3rd position Rigido on Formaldehyd, solid uk hardcore built in Germany - Just a good
track. While the fourth track is unremarkable techno, X-Frame hits me with a wonderful Dub
paradise track. It uses the soundtrack of the motion picture 'Once Upon a Time in the
West', but not in a commercial or boring way but with deepness and soul. The craziest track
of the cd is Brain Unltd. - The track is a happy (and) hardcore exess. Prodigy would have
fun with it, Acen too. Bold Basslines... - Same like 'Nemesis' on position 9, a trancecore
demon, could be a brother to CJ Bollands 'Mindwar'. The S M I L E tune sounds like a
early track on Overdrive (Mainz). Dark answer to the Mayday Rave Sound of these days,
Frankfurt strikes back - Hardcore, you know the score! When I heard the Gain Force
track for the first time i thougt that I had found a track that beats 'Klang Der familie' with
its own typical industrial noise-sample. Just harder and better - A storm again, made for
the fingers of Lenny Dee or other big hardcore dj-talents. Wooden noise power drums.
The second M O M track is a ordinary trance tune but the last track is the special
addition that closes the circle: A precious piece of music because it is a hardtrance
track produced by the famous Speedfreak. Most of us know that nearly 100% of his output
was hardcore in different forms and to find a trance track is like finding a needle
in a haystack.
Altogether this first Uptown release has the same high quality like only some other
releases of that decade: For example 'Brückenkopf im Niemandsland' Force Inc released,
'Rauschen' part 3-5, both Force Inc too, 'Sound Of Frankfurt Vol 4', a Trigger release
or 'Tech Imperators' part 1 and 2, both M Records. (5/5) Full points.
