posted a comment on Orbital. 13 days ago
For me Orbital would be one of the most overrated artists in the electronic scene. I am not saying this to get a rise out of fans etc etc their live shows are great not doubt but 95% of their musically output has always left me underwhelmed. I am ... See full review

Ok then Martin firstly I didn't say that Ed & Andy had no say or saw zero money from the reissues, I was merely posing the question but you have answered it.
So thank you for clearing the matter that Ed & Andy were consulted with full transparency prior ... See full review

The go to label people quote when they wish to enter the cool school, whether those that claim it to be their favourite label actually own any 12's is another thing.

As mentioned this is a great release, I can certainly hear a lot of Orlando's influence and snippets of Juan but in my opinion Orlando had the lions share in producing this album.
posted a comment on Jonny L - Make Me Work (Turn Me Around). 2 months ago
I'm sorry but to me with that bassline it sounds like it could have been a JX track. Jonny Acid is an ok fast euro acid track I suppose.

En Trance To Exit for me is the only track of Richards that falls short of his vision & talent.
posted a comment on Outlaw Posse - My Afro's On Fire!. 2 months ago
Fairly slick production which holds its own against US releases around the same time yet is undeniably a UK sound, less hyped compared to the Hijack, Hardnoise, Bullet crew. Bello B's lyrics aren't overly deep but sit well over the nice bouncy party ... See full review

To me this sounds like a Darren Pearce production from 91 not 92. Its not a bad track just slightly dated for 92.

Compilation series that pushed the more ambient and laid back side of the electronic world with a heap of exclusive tracks by some of the leading lights of their respective fields.

I always found tracks like Church Of Pain as being a producers idea of how can I be as fuckin annoying as possible & see if the label actually goes for it.

posted a comment on Direct Beat. 2 months ago
I have found over the past 30 years of buying second hand records that second hand Direct Beat records are by far the most beat up records of all time compared to any other label. That to me tells me that this label has seriously tough love fans.

posted a comment on Merlin - Drop The Weapon / Weekend Girl. 2 months ago
Why the low rating? sure Merlins lyrics aren't the deepest and Weekend Girl isn't really my cup of tea but Drop The Pressure is a fairly solid funky track for the dancefloor. However Bust A Move is a huge raw rattler that sounds like it was recorded at a ... See full review

As much as I like these types of releases what I don't like is having record 4 included twice because they couldn't get their shit together when adding the records to the sleeves.

I cant see the comment now but from memory Lee commented that he was embarrassed by this ep and that it was a bit of a cop out. Peace frog wanted a trancey type track and they wacked something out quickly.
