    Love this. It's a pity Rave Fantasy isn't available on vinyl though.

      This guy is probably the best of all the Reinforced Record crew acts. Truly superior music 25 years ago and then he releases another outstanding current album. Top of the shelf Techno with no holding back in his years of great tunes. This album brings me back to 1992 again and it's a recent album. Just a class act.

        Most would never know this album is new. I had no idea this was being made until a friend sent me the link to the website for pre-orders. And order on sight I did!!! My only request would be please release the whole thing on vinyl. Every track is excellent with rave fantasy being my favourite I think....nice work.
        • After no genuinely new released under the "Manix" alias in nearly 2 decades, Marc Mac released this brilliant 10-track album last year. If you are a fan of the old Manix hardcore rave sound from 1991-95, you're in for a treat. There is even a strong jungle/proto-jungle song with the brilliant "Pull Up Tune". This stuff doesn't sound EXACTLY like old Manix songs, but it sounds an awful lot like that style with just a bit of a modern twist. Was this worth the wait? Yes, it was more than worth the wait, and considering the lack of strong non-compilation artist LP's in the rave genre, this might be the best release of its type of all time.
