Two of his tracks got way to much used not only in dancefloors but also on the radio and on kinda every compilation like it was thrown in the mouth to be sick on those two tracks are overrated are 1) Pullover & 2) Something for Your Mind . He has done better work but somehow in the 90's it got overshadowed by what the mainstream loved and such . Internet didn't existed in those times .

Same faith goes with some other artists that are only known for one or two of their tracks but made better stuff non-commercial .

After 27 years listening to electronic music, i would say this is an underrated musician. Electric Deluxe on Plus8, G Spot, Pullover and Ieee Mitten Menu not much behind Aphex Twin, all masterpieces in each genre. Respect

Speedy J is not an easy man to describe. He has seen several transitions through the years, first as an ambient techno producer of the highest caliber, focused on lush and beautiful soundscapes and melodies (Ginger through G Spot). He later moved into a very dark, aggro sound that mixed elements of industrial, techno and breakbeat for some of the most intimidating and challenging music of its era (Patterns through A Shocking Hobby). In the early 00's, he discovered what was probably his true calling all along - hard techno. 2002's Loudboxer went down as one of the most loved techno albums of the year, and its singles were banged by DJs around the world for quite some time after. After the mainstream success he enjoyed with Loudboxer and later collaborations with techno legend Chris Liebing, Speedy J settled into a kind of Surgeon-like cult status in the techno scene - some obscure releases, highly sought after, mixing traditional techno sounds with experimental and ambient. That's basically where we find him today in 2019. Unfortunately, he hasn't gone back to the "artist album" in over 14 years and that's where I felt he was at his best - telling a story over several tracks, displaying his skills outside of the of-the-moment club environment. Let's hope he gets the inspiration again, as very little in today's electronic music scene would rival a new LP from Mr. J.

After hearing The Oil Zone and a couple of other tracks from that album on the radio I thought "That should be another great artist!". Now after listening to the entire catalogue I think "This is another overrated german / dutch artist". The situation is very similar to Sven Vath - a couple of early albums (in this case Ginger and G Spot or rather G Spot and !ive) had the distinct style and high quality, but strangely before and after that these artists always did the same repetitive banging "underground european techno". I don't know, maybe people really like it but there is no trace of any quality there, I think it's very sad :(

Thank you for the divine gift of perfect sounds that carry me today in the realms beyond the galaxy. Even if I have to say that my enjoyment of your music had its peak from 1997-2004, so you remained faithful to your striking tones at least. Perfect sound world .... thank you!

One of the most influential names on today's electronic scene. No vocals, no live drums, just pure electronics, ranging from easy ambient to the dancefloor beasts. Speedy J makes rules.

There was one track ca 1997 wich has got commercial, but this was good for his name's fame. The main Speedy J has a shocking hobby. Sitting at home and makeing overdriven distored electronic hiphopdrumloops + oldstylesynthpads.
Absolute brilliant. Not the rave/party stuff, "soething for your mind, body, and your soul." And your Car.
This style is the only one where synthpads are ok, becose there is no trance feeling in.
The other side of Speedy J. makes partystuff, a well known, and welcomed name in the scene.
