Are you familiar with Levon's work? His stuff is always stripped back, and always destroys the dance floor. I'd love to hear the collaboration track out.

It's different to the older Kenlou stuff, yeah but I like it.

I'd totally get the vinyl because the CD isn't even on streaming services!

I'd been out of techno and clubbing for a bit. Things were too heated by the end of the millennium, and there was definitely a malaise afterwards that I felt in the releases. So, I went to other places for kicks. I remember hearing early micro house... See full review

Black ice is still a wonderful roller, after all these years. Timeless imo.

I didn't listen to Robert Hood's stuff for a few years, as I was quite committed to his Minimal Nation period. This album is a stonker though. Controlled, and perfected, if not minimal.

Multiple tracks on here would be lethal on the dance floor (if... See full review

What are you talking about? There was plenty more techno than that... purpose maker, downwards, DJ gigalos? Rhythm & sound were only just getting started by 1996 too. Perhaps a hazy memory from all the raves ;-)

I’m halfway through the second tune and already wish this could be pressed on vinyl. Solid new material from mr Vogel. Love it!!!

I was listening to this again recently. It sounds quite dated now, but it is an effective banger. The 'head-voice' is remarkably on-point. I'm glad those days are behind me.

My copy has the JTS etching, but not the red stamp. I bought it from Vibe Records in Bournemouth in 1994. Classic days.
posted a comment on DJ Python - Mas Amable. 6 months ago
Really nice release, very calming and melodic. I love the pads the producer uses.

But, there's nothing groundbreaking here. It's a collage of samples and chords-over-perc. Nice, but a bit too IDM from the mid-90s for someone who lived through the mid-90s. See full review

That's not true. I have an original copy, with the etchings described above that does not have the red stamp. I bought it back in the day from Vibe in Bournemouth, a small shop just down the road from where this label was based.

5 releases in and Voam is a buy-on-sight label for me.

Very, very well selected cuts showing how sophisticated 'faceless techno bollocks' has become. More please!

People comparing this to Bitches Brew are crazy. The vibe is similar but impossible to compare this (great) work to an monolithic, awe-inspiring experience like bitches brew.

What an unexpected, beautiful album from Nail. Thoroughly recommended all-time listening.
posted a comment on Primate Recordings. about 1 year ago
Primate being a divider of opinions is very true. They put out some good tunes, as would any label releasing that much stuff. But, the quality control wasn't there. So. Many. Average. Tunes. I know, because I lived through it...

Wow, surprised this is going for so cheap. It's a great EP of deeper late 90s era Swedish techno. I loved this then, and still do now (flips the record).

Having listened a few times I'm not as disappointed with this as others on the thread.

The Onetrix point never remix is wonderful, and leads into the electric youth remix really well. Other standouts include Yves Tumor and Cornelius.

An absolutely astounding modern classical record... from it's first second until it's end. Rightfully FACTmag's album of the year.

I love the Chopin-inspired piece, Full Moon.

I'm referring to a lot of Melchior inspired grooves, Romanian stuff, some perlon and this ep. If you stick entirely to the genre things work well but I like to jump around quite a bit. Could also be my DJ skills need a tweak ;)

posted a comment on Cab Drivers - Alternative Acts. over 4 years ago
I can't believe that people are still making tech-housey bits like this still. The parts, an pads especially sound straight from 1998-9.

But, I've listened to Alternative Acts all the way through and it is an exquisite jam. I will probably buy it!
