I like it ruff for sure however I just find this a little too ruff on the mix and also a lot of the transitions are clumsy. Mad respect for SS of course but I wish a bit more time was spent on this ep

posted a comment on DCE, Antony Coppens - Systematic Breakdown. 4 months ago
Systematic Breakdown is one hell of a killer track that reminds me of Christopher Just for some reason, I used to hear it drop very rarely in the latter parts of the 90ies and always destroyed dancefloors.

Is mine the only one with a pressing issue? both sides have a backwards loop fault A side at around 2/3s and B side around half way.

One of the last "ravey" type tracks/remixes that FSOL did.

Faith is an absolute killer, haunting strings, distorted percussion, dope Detroit emotional melodies.

Hang on, did this track come out prior to Dance Before The Police Come which was 1990 from memory?

Is this in relation to Q Bass? I presume someone of these guys were into the rave scene.

Synth It was one of AFX's favourite tracks way back in the day.

Errrr not sure Luke has much of say to be honest its the labels decision on formats, take it up with Josh.

Indeed a great collection of electronica with a few tracks that don't seem to be available anywhere else.

Have to agree not a favourite Djax release Artificial V2.0 is ok and Basement is kinda decent but as mentioned most part the record doesn't really seem to go anywhere.

The start synth stab of the Radio Version sounds very very very much like the Roygbiv hook.

Is it just me or does What Falls Away Is Always sit strangely here? I mean I don't dislike the track but I wouldn't say I'd think it was FSOL with out knowing and for me it sits slightly weirdly on this release.
Another great release regardless.

I personally don't think it sounds like Go or Age Of Love or Pacific Symphony or papa new guinea other then in genre, I am talking about a track that sounds basically exactly the same not vaguely similar. Think Rave Generator and Pure Pleasure that is... See full review

Indeed Scramble is killer also Liquid Flow is amazing in fact all tracks are great and varied, production is spot on but I just saw it was recorded at TTB with no doubt Richard Brown on the mix.
posted a comment on Interactive - Amok. 10 months ago
If you are familiar with both tracks you can’t dispute they sound very very similar. I am fairly certain I heard del terra at the end of 92 I presume it was promo’d early and copied by jens. I am happy to eat my words if proved otherwise but I just... See full review

For the past 20 years only a few would have thought to buy this type of stuff after finding them in the $1 bins. I used to see Thunk records constantly for next to nothing what a strange turn.
posted a comment on David Holmes - Johnny Favourite. 10 months ago
I always liked this track but felt a mixture of being overwhelmed yet underwhelmed at the same time, so some 25 years later I put it on and well, got say it just seems a bit of a directionless meandering bit of whatever. Sonic wise its not bad... See full review

Metropolis crossed over into the sets of a heap of people you'd never expect to play Steve Stoll. Perfect example of a simple bit very effective track that had people running onto the dancefloor.

Trance in the early 90ies was fairly different to trance in the late 90ies.

I remember Nuclear Holocaust getting caned in dark sweaty underground techno nights. Bit of an odd track really.
posted a comment on Vapourspace - Gravitational Arch Of 10. about 1 year ago
Surely should be listed as a techno classic, this track stood out against all others. Nothing in my mind sounded anything like this. Seeing a sea of ravers, eyes closed swaying to the over 3 minute beatless intro at 3am was quite surreal and when that... See full review

Its a pressing issue the second copy I received was the same. Write to R&S.
posted a comment on Space Dimension Controller - Love Beyond The Intersect. about 1 year ago
I asked Juno whether they have received complaints however they just sent out another copy and sure enough both have noise so its a pressing issue, seriously fuck coloured vinyl, full stop end of story, no ifs or buts about it, fuck coloured vinyl.

Worth tracking down as there are quite a few exclusives on this release.

posted a comment on Mell 'O'* - Mell 'O' Gone Crazy. about 1 year ago
Mell 'O' Gone Crazy is a fairly heavy slab of UK hardcore rap, I can imagine K-Sly over this as well.

Anyone else think this pressing has heaps of surface noise? listening to The Cost Of Clarity now and the noise especially from the left channel is huge.

Gotta say that when I previewed this album I was borderline whether or not to get it, but damn I am glad I did because as an album it is pretty damn amazing. Definitely one of the best 2019 albums for me.

I worked in a record store when this came out, a kid who was tripping came into the store to have a bit of a wig out. The kid asked the owner of the store (who had little idea of dance music) to pick out a record for him to listen to on headphones and... See full review

EDM or IDM? I never heard the term EDM used in the 90ies.
posted a comment on Son'z Of A Loop Da Loop Era* - Further Out / Let Your Mind Be Free. about 1 year ago
For 1991 Let Your Mind Be Free is a fairly quick rolling stab of hardcore rawness, heavier & crazier that most tracks around the same time and for that matter for a fair while afterwards as well.
