Born in 1978, I came in contact with electronic music through KLF and Twenty 4 Seven in the time, when the new MTV started.
Through Jean-Michel Jarres and Mike Oldfields Music I came to the "Thunderdome"-Series and the famous HR3 Clubnight radiobroadcast by a friend of mine. My club life began in Kassel in 1994. I hold this up until ca. 1998-99 as well.

I was to be found annually at the Hessentag-Clubnight. In other aspects as far as partys are concerned I go out very rarely. Minimal and boring/simply uninteressting music is only one reason of many... From the very beginning my motto was: "No drugs! Just music". I have kept this until today.

I never had pleasure in extremely commercial electronic music just as little as in the most freaky Hype-Minimal-Techno in "150th
special edition". Those who browse through my collection, might understand this quite well.
Music which I like should have a certain artistic value, a certain "half-value-time" and something like a "soul" and "warmth". If the music contains
this things it doesn't matter how fast or "hard" a title is. It should have just the "special something" that touches me.

Main-styles: Ambient/Downtempo, Deep / Progressive/Tech-House, Progressive/Melodic (mainly Classic-)Trance, Breakbeats, Oldskool Techno. I'm generally open-minded for everykind of good music, but Black Music and/or Rap/Hip Hop have never been a part of my musical socialisation. I just don't like it.

If you have records listed in my wantlist to offer , have questions about my collection or just want to get in contact, feel free to write me a mail :-)

I'm always looking forward to learn new similiar-minded people know!

Thanks for watching by
Chris

The Pascal FEOS Remix is a real gem! If you listen closely it's a reminiscence to Hypnotist - The House is Mine.
Totally underrated work but a floor bomb.

is there any other one thinking the producer of this record is Dieter Meier from Yello and/or Hans Steingen (Boffin)?
posted a comment on Utah Saints - Star. about 1 year ago
Some little trivia why this record hasn't been bigger is the fact that the "Wishing on a Star..."-vocal sample from Rose Royce has never been cleared officially. A tragical fate for a real great and classic remix from Union Jack.

For me music has something to do with emotions.

"Virtual Atmosphere" is a decent cover of Humate - Love Stimulation. Very euphoric and uplifting, and if you ask me, it is much better than Kaycee's Remake of this Trance-Classic.
