Why I Am Here @ Discogs.com:

Discogs has helped me over the years in finding info i couldn't find anywhere else on releases i had, wanted, or needed more info on. It's also the best place i've found to buy Used LP's. I contribute what i can in the way of album artwork mostly here as well as adding things that aren't here yet in the database. It's also a great way to catalog one's own collection.

Plain and simple... Discogs Rocks. :-)

Well, what can i say... I fell in love with the RIFT track back when he released it on MySpace in '07 / '08. I wanted it on vinyl so damn bad ! But, at that time, it was just a mp3 you could buy through Vampire Records.

When i thought about the track ... See full review

One Of My TOP 2 Favorite 10" Records Of All Time.

This Gem is the ultimate horn experience. If you dig horns, this 10" will blow your mind! The first track (A1 - Alyo), is a great upbeat, lively jam that really gets you moving.

Spectral's 'Avalon' (Track C1) is the most amazing trance tune from the late 90's i can remember. I recently purchased this Double LP set from a user on Discogs, and i am blown away listening to this old favorite compilation 13 years later. It still ... See full review

2 Deep House Trax You Shouldn't Miss On Vinyl...

All i can start with is... HOLY PIANO ! (*Side B's 'Obatala (A Piano Story)')

I really dig this 12" a lot. It's sort of a club vibe feel that normally i don't think i'd really be all that into. (*As I'm more of a fan of the instrumental mixes, extended mixes, not so much the club house music with lotsa' vocals...)

Both tracks on this new single from both Ian Pooley & Spencer Parker are amazing.

Side A is a serious deep house track, instrumental, and has a nice interlude during the track with a focus on the lead organ sample that makes the track killer.

Side B ... See full review

What's great about this LP is that it's not only one of the classic punk rock albums of it's time in the sk8/punk world, but it has two fantastic surf-style rock tracks on it. Tracks A6 'Walk Don't Run', and my personal favorite on this LP, Side B1 ... See full review

Both 'Greenwood Rhythm Coalition' as well as 'Midnight Lab Band' kick some serious brokenbeat / latin / dance ass. I've heard many of the releases thus far on the label and i have to say, it's quickly becoming one of my top favorites easily.

Two words sum up how i feel about this little gem... "Hell Yeah". It's another HQ release from GRC that is HEAVY on the Latin grooves. I was very happy to get this from a fellow Discogs user and have to say, if you like GRC, this one is certainly NOT TO ... See full review

This LP for me is a great look into the beginnings of Ian Pooley's evolution. While it may sound 'dated' as it's oldschool acid house / tech house, if listened to as part of the history of Ian's work as a whole, it shows that even back then he was moving ... See full review
