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 month 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...

I find the fact that someone has classified this as 'Tech House' insulting. I need to get out more.

Spira remix... classic Dave Angel-played material right here! Must have 10 words.

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).

Carl Craig is an incredible DJ. One of the best. Silly comment.

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 ;)

Am I the only one that thinks these tracks are a bit... average? Typical loopy techy house. Track one is ok.

Solid beatdown-inspired ep from The Room Below. Packed with vibes.
posted a comment on Cab Drivers - Alternative Acts. over 3 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!
posted a comment on Voyant Inc, Tofu Productions - Lost In Time / The Warmth. over 3 years ago
I'm finding it increasingly hard to mix these tunes with other material. The production style and sparse-ness can result in a real drop in energy. The Dan Bell collab especially so.

Play from beginning to end on it's own though, and it's pure bliss.

The Superlongevity series is getting to be like Pop Ambient, just too good to be this regularly released. I'm still discovering gems from last year's release and long comes another...

I've gotta be honest, this sounds like dime-a-dozen Communique releases from the mid-90s.It's some heavy acid trax and will wreck rooms, but lets not pretend like this is unique.

I'll be honest. I remember this album coming out and being like... fuck techno is getting really boring. Where were the hallucinogenic elements of Cristian Vogel and AFX? This tunes on this album, and that of early Surgeon were a lot more repetitive and ... See full review

I dunno, speaking as a D+B lover the Francois K mix is properly shit. The break sounds like sped up fatboy slim, and the parts aren't treated with respect. It's far, far behind the rest of the remixes.
posted a comment on Rhythm & Sound - See Mi Yah (Remixes #1). over 3 years ago
I'm still listening to these remixes now, and they are dope! Fuck knows what turned off our 2006 reviewers. The Villalobos remix, my favorite, strips back the elements but leaves the lyrics fully intact. Yes!

These are heavy, insightful pieces of ... See full review

I wasn't sure whether to buy this as I have a lot of 'deep/melodic' techno and electro. I'm glad I did though because despite being 100% deep, there is a wonderful uniqueness to the tracks. They all stand on their own as great compositions.

As an old boy it's really weird to see younger producers like Mosca, and Paleman embrace electro. I like it, but want people to add their own twist(s) too.

IMO house music around the 00s went a little too 'smooth'.

But, if anyone wants an example of this style at it's best, look no further than here. It's a brilliant set of tracks.

This is a really nice record. Undulate is not trying overly hard to be this-or-that. It seems content to lay down a nice synths-and-drums groove that I can whig out to for ages. Grit, sounds like something Surgeon might play over a 4/4 beat... to ... See full review

My first copy had the tale-tell signs of pressing problems, with milky smears across A & B, which resulted in reoccurring pops. No distortion though.

I was listening back to this at the weekend. This is a solid 12, and quite experimental. It's definitely aged way better than the other 'jazzy' tunes from the time.
