Never heard this song before the 'Running Man Challenge' fad, but I must say this track is HOT. An awesome slice of 90s R&B/house/hip-hop hybrid. Think some of the stuff Mariah Carey and Janet Jackson were cutting around the time. Smooth synths alongside ... See full review

The UK Mix of this album is far superior to the US Mix. Just listen to the track "Dream On Dreamer" and compare to the two albums. It's like night and day. This disco stomper on the UK album features an awesome string section, punchy horns, funky guitar, ... See full review

Fantastic album! I only got to know some of the cuts on this awesome album by The Limit through Futurefunk samples. But there are some really awesome, solid 80 electro-funk tunes on here. This album really slices the crossover space between 80s Nu-Wave ... See full review

This remix of The Player by JohNick is a underlooked gem. First heard it in the Daft Punk Essential Set...it's done from the original multitracks so it's not just some white label bootleg cut up or anything like that. Love the congas and the the girls ... See full review

This is really just a magnificent song, I don't know how the original by Two Tons Of Fun wasn't a hit when it was released in the first place. But the underground scene knows what music is actually really good, and BBE picked a gem to re-edit when they ... See full review

One of the worst voices ever be on a pop record. The only hit she ever came close to having was "Walking on Thin Ice" because Larry Levan and Frankie Knuckles used to spin the record back in the day.

Almost without a doubt the record that Alan Braxe & Fred Falke sampled for "Intro" which contains a looped sample of The Jets - Crush On You found in the same form as this record. Good stuff.

This is simply untrue, as the first few tracks on Disc 2 were definitely released before 1997, as was the Heavies Edit of Dream Come True 92.
posted a comment on Frankie Knuckles - The Whistle Song Revisited. over 4 years ago
Interesting, sounds a lot like the Director's Cut Revisited version but not quite exactly like it, especially the intro and beat are different, guess they reissued it under the Director's Cut name for branding and exposure? Regardless, good tune.
posted a comment on Nightcrawlers - Push The Feeling On. over 5 years ago
I must say, the original mix of this tune is quite underrated early-90s house. That Frankie Knuckles-esque piano going on is solid, I dig this tune. The MK dub is quite good as well, but the original gets no love.

Both mixes on this are awesome tracks. The Funk D'Void mix takes the sample from the original Loopduell and houses it up a bit, makes the track a bit more dance friendly. Adds in some filter and a better beat.

Rollin sounds like a remake of Alan Braxe's Vertigo (Virgo Edit). It's almost uncanny how similar the songs sound, though Patrick doesn't do nearly as good of a job. I thought he was more original than that!

This is one of Benjamin Diamond's best songs, a single from the days of his first album "Strange Attitude" that for some reason, didn't make it onto the album. It's a poppy disco track that's lighthearted and fun. Kind of reminiscent of Fenech Soler's ... See full review

The real gem on this Acapella Anonymous compilation is the secret track at the end of Bits & Pieces, the infamous "Jack's Dead" acapella as played by Daft Punk in their Essential Selection. It's not a very long acapella, but it's really good.

This is a REALLY good Deep House EP, shame it's so unknown. Moodyman played two songs from this EP in his mix on Radio Nova back in '95. House of Jazz and Hold Your Head Up are both super soulful, relaxing, deep, and just overall excellent tracks.
posted a comment on Alan Braxe & Kris Menace - Lumberjack. over 8 years ago
Massive tune, this collaboration by Alan Braxe & Kris Menace has a dark, heavy, repeated synth-line, a big 909 rhythm, and minimal vocals. It's very reminiscent of Daft Punk's "Alive".
