Does anyone know the total number of these produced? I have # 11,677.

Quite the departure from what we've known from him - but wow! What a beauty of an ambient record. Buy on sight.

Yes, YES!

Classic Vibert business here on both sides of this seriously funky 4-track 7". A side finds two mid-90's Wagon Christ stylee chunk / funk break joints riding Herbie and Mountain samples (to name a few).
Flip for squelchy blunted acid breaks ... See full review

Awesome version! Nice heavy record, hand numbered, loud and clear pressing. Great way to get these beautiful and classic era Aphex remixes . SOLID!!

Two great cuts, both rinsed heavily in DC&BMore @ Buzz, Fever, Ultraworld mid-90's. Hard to find but well worth it.

Anyone know where I can find this for sale? Not seeing in the usual places (Amazon/FR, label, etc.)
posted a review of Amon Tobin - Creatures. about 1 year ago
This is a really amazing, creative and well produced record - and also my introduction to Amon Tobin in 1996 when it was released. I bought the 12" based on the Ninja Tune company sleeve alone expecting the downtempo flavor Ninja was known for at that ... See full review
posted a comment on Heaven 17 - (We Don't Need This) Fascist Groove Thang. about 1 year ago
The B side really takes the cake here. Experimental synth explorations in the style of Jarre, combined with layered pads over a half-there drum pattern sound like anything you might find on a Numan or Kraftwerk cut. Dope.

Very cool instrumental industrial / electro B side track - 'Lean to The Inside'.

posted a review of EBN* - 3:7:8. over 2 years ago
Great record usually found in the cut-out bins. 3:7:8 is an awesome Jack Dangers of Meat Beat Manifesto production, and a little known classic in the mid-90s MBM style of Subliminal Sandwich / Helter Skelter / It's The Music. Chunky, galloping breaks, ... See full review

Disc 1 Side A of mine played fine, and then clocks and pops audible throughout 1B. Bummed.
posted a review of Recoil - Hydrology. over 2 years ago
A really stunning record by Alan Wilder, the long time member and arranger with Depeche Mode. One can very much hear the key elements he brought to DM in this 3 track 12", where he expertly accomplishes a wide range of experimental and moody styles. ... See full review

Killer record! Heavy industrial beats on the title track with throbbing techno bass, spooky synths and spoken word samples in true Adrian Sherwood fashion - and one of his finest productions, in my opinion. Flip for a cut-up style electro jam with DJ ... See full review

Does anyone know if there is a discernible difference on the outer sleeve, or way to tell by the sleeve the clear from the black versions? I pre-ordered the clear version from Bleep, which arrived sealed today, but I also purchased another identical ... See full review

Total Control is a deceptively funky roller with some top quality breaks and stand up bass that would sound right at home coming out of Full Cycle's catalogue. You can still hear some of the remnants of the distant hardcore sound in Foul Play's kick ass ... See full review
posted a comment on Echo & The Bunnymen. over 3 years ago
One of the more popular, yet still sadly underrated bands of the post punk set. Their debut LP, Crocodiles, is a must have for anyone even pretending to be into Joy Division, The Cure, or any of the darker side of alternative. The whole album is a tour ... See full review
posted a comment on Funki Porcini. over 3 years ago
One of the best of the early Ninja artists, this guy has serious production chops and knows how to build a cinematic groove. From the deep and smokey slink of Hed Phone Sex's weird trip-hop into the drum and bass frenzies on his LP&C era, and back to ... See full review
posted a comment on DJ Cam - No. 1. over 3 years ago
This is a really killer slice of 90's trip hop with some decent jazzy dnb in there as well. Cam's style is cinematic and groovy - in the realm of Krush a little more than Shadow, but a good double pack of 10"s nonetheless!

Picked up a New Order - Ceremony (FAC33) 7", which looks unplayed at a record swap and found this flexi inside. Wonder if it was ever packaged with FAC33. Both look totally unplayed.

NICE!! Although credited to GC, it's actually Tom Middleton resurrecting the legendary moniker to turn in 2 dreamy, slow building ambient groovers. Fans will be pleased, as all the 90s GC sounds are in full effect - arpeggiated synth builds, smooth subs, ... See full review

Don't miss the hidden gem on the flip - Anitina (First Time I See She Dance). An interesting and groovy mid-tempo industrial club track with some solid drum and bass programming, wailing voices, strange samples. Best of Colourbox style without the cheese.

Jack Dangers at his best here on remix duty using classic MBM style breaks, bass and acid to create a wonderfully smoked out and hypnotic tribal groove perfect for home or the dance floor. MBM fans won't be disappointed - awesome stuff. Cool work from ... See full review

My version of this is 7" has no center label on the Showroom Dummies side. Looks like a misprint / error version?
posted a comment on Autechre - Envane. over 4 years ago
One of my faves in the Autechre catalog. The scratched sample in Goz Quarter is from Dr. Octagon- No Awareness. The full line is "watch them jam like Autechre with old energy".

Luke Vibert steals the show here with one of his first dnb forays as Plug. Classic sets of breaks slide and glide, cleanly edited and arranged with heavy, punchy subs and that solid Vibert jazz funk, leaving a little grime in its wake. A tongue in cheek ... See full review

Beautiful set all around and a real joy to own, but curious if anyone received more than the first two 12" samplers as part of the membership mailers? I see that there are 5 listed, but I only rec'd ZEN160XX1 and ZEN160XX2 a few months apart via mail.

Classic album that was sort of the precursor to Deltron 3030, based on an episode of Fox's short lived series starring Chris Elliot, Get A Life that fans of Automator and Prince Paul will enjoy. Not every track is a killer, but definitely quality ... See full review
posted a review of Funki Porcini - Hed Phone Sex. over 6 years ago
Gotta echo the sentiments of the other reviewers here. This is an essential piece of mid-90's trip hop / downtempo and one of Ninja Tune's finest moments of their early catalogue. All at once Funky, drugged out, cheeky and sexy - this is a classic.

I got this 12" as a bonus from Warp when I ordered the Geogaddi lp at the time of its original release. It came with a small plastic turquoise hexagon shape like the center logo and a Geogaddi postcard.
posted a review of Luke Vibert - Do Unto Others. over 12 years ago
Classic beat driven and quirky melodies on this class 90's Vibert EP. Gritty bass and chunky beats lead the way with 'Dance Music' being the stand out in my opinion. Cool die-cut-stencil like sleeve.
