Profile

Music Archeaologist, Genre Nerd, and RYM Box Set Head. I'm an ex-dj from Denver with a love for the UK and especially dance music, but I'm wide open in my love for all kinds of genres and exploring them. Snobbery and rudeness is not my cup of tea, respect and pursuit of musical history is my passion. I've ran a lot of different blogs, made some of my own amateur and niche music, but my love is in my lists. You can see my 900+ lists covering everything I've known or loved on RYM. https://rateyourmusic.com/list/TheScientist/

I'm using Discogs more and more for some more lists for upcoming RYM Box Sets. If you have any recommendations on my RYM or Discogs lists shoot a pm! Thanks!

Check out that comprehensive Genre Project on RYM. New portal here https://rymboxset.blogspot.com/
Or the classic view, here https://rateyourmusic.com/list/TheScientist/rym-ultimate-box-set/
My Playlists from that Project are on my YouTube and Spotify Accounts.

Anyone in my friend's list has either great reviews, lists, or forum comments. I do have an index of all the great Electronic Discogs lists on my site that are great resources.

Purple (Sasha V The Light) is likely the greatest progressive breaks track other than Hybrid's Finished Symphony. While the original and the 1997 solo Sasha remix made it onto a few dj mixes, its was the '98 version with The Light co-mixing that made... Voir l'avis en entier

Well this is a dj mixed release. With the Ritchie Family track being a 2 min medley that's repeated 3 times and then "Band of Gold" awkwardly jammed in there abruptly before a slightly better mix in of Diana Ross (which is sped up and then noticeably... Voir l'avis en entier

"Machine's Drama" is a brilliant bit of Italo-Disco. Dark as hell electro. The rest is pretty decent space disco and atmospheric soundscapes. Way better then the cover indicates. Worth obtaining for the 1st track alone.

Sadly both the Knuckles remix and the original do so little for me. I've tried to backtrack and appreciate this often raved about deep house track but it just seems rather weak personally. The original is definitely better but still just does not hold... Voir l'avis en entier

Another alias of the Blaze duo, this is fantastic house and probably the best example of the difference in "styles" of garage house and deep house. Side A "Keeping in my Mind" is upbeat Garage with a representative vocal. Side B "Blaze Theme Track" is... Voir l'avis en entier

My favorite James Bond theme and an amazing adaption by the Propellerheads. The Propellerheads were totally enraptured with 60's spy themes and beat culture so this adaption makes perfect sense. One of their best productions.

A much needed Diva in the mostly male Chicago House scene. The spoken bridge is pretty hilarious and a bit dated but the rest of the song is pretty ace. If the rap bridge on "Last Night a Dj Saved my Life" is forgiveable then certainly so is this one.... Voir l'avis en entier

Opal mix is rather unusual version, also known as the "Hip-Hop mix", although its more of a sped up breakbeat, and the chorus sounds refreshingly different. Distortion eventually consumes the end of the track and Trent's vocal of "you know, you know... Voir l'avis en entier
