What is it about these early releases that make them still sound so fresh? Is it just the simplicity? A first time listener may find them sort of annoying or repetitive, but I love them and you can never find a kick drum that makes you stomp your feet like some of these old bangers. They definitely beg to be mixed and layered on top of each other and I guess that is why they still fetch so much cash? This label will always be one of my fav's. Long live Perlon!

Perlon shows a very dark and mysterious way of music and every Artist is well choosen for that way. But Zip is one of the best DJs i heard. He shows you what a simple record could do for you on the floor. When you observe Perlon in its entirety, every release make sense. Looking forward to new releases and the next 14 years.

In my opinion, Perlon was the best minimal underground label out there because its artists created a unique sound and style. Since release #36 (superlongevity 3) the sound started to change for worse. Ultra long tracks, non danceable, actually boring. I think artists should go back to the roots or stop releasing in this label. I would jump from release #36 to #49 where Matt John recovers that "lost" perlon sound.
