Check out ELECTRO DISCO WAVE - the latest mix I posted to Discogs!

I started DJing in 1990 inspired by '80s synth music, early rave techno, new beat and belgian EBM.

DJed at a college radio show at WRIU in Rhode Island from 1990-1997, which was one of the most fun times of my life. Lots of late nights alone in a darkened studio playing music to an invisible audience.

I've had a few residencies around New England over the years, but nowadays I mainly just do occasional guest spots here and there at gigs where I think people will want to hear something a little different.

This seems to be a very quiet pressing. In order to hear it well it needs to be turned up pretty loud which in turn brings the noise floor up to a noticeable level. As others have mentioned, this is tolerable during louder passages, but quite noticeable ... See full review

Be careful mixing with this one! For a track that presumably was made for the dance floor, the tempo on the dance remix drifts all over the place.

I had the same problem with my copy I think the enclosed pin caused the record to warp over time before it was sold.

Bought this new and sealed and it had pops and crackles straight away, including a pop that made the needle jump slightly out of groove during the start of Red Zebra.

This compilation has a couple good songs (Joy of Radiation, Cool Runnings) and a bunch of very forgettable songs. Unfortunately almost every song suffers from a very dated remix/editing technique where certain sections of the songs are looped ad ... See full review

Not good. This has that typical "Eye Of The Tiger" 80's rock soundtrack feel to it. Don't buy this expecting the usual Moroder wizardry; it's just not here.

My favorite release on Nu Groove, this is classic acid house. "Nervous Acid" is perfectly named; dark, minimal, but with a strong sense of groove. This is a must have!

This release was one of the worst experiences I have ever had with CD packaging. This is supposed to be 3 CDs in a stack, separated by 3 other "blank" CDs with a layer of felt glued on them. Unfortunately when I bought this, the CDs that were supposed to ... See full review

Probably my favorite record in the Acardipane/PCP catalog, this record defies categorization! A dark, brooding, subdued, almost downtempo (126 bpm is downtempo for PCP!) tune, this would be equally at home in an electro set, an industrial set as well as ... See full review

Side A is a decent 4/4 techy number, but the real gem here is "Break Out", a storming electro burner with evil synth washes and vocodered madness!
posted a review of Various - Somewhere In The Skeleton. over 14 years ago
Not sure what Dirk Ivens was thinking here, but this is just bloody awful! Poorly produced EBM with sometimes totally dry screaming vocals and monotone 32nd note basslines. Probably the weakest release in the Body Records catalog.

The track on the B-side of this is called "Light Bringer". It received an "official" name when both tracks on this 12" showed up on the PCP PHUTURE compilation.

Unless you're a completist, you're better off tracking down the PHUTURE compilation, as ... See full review

This album was origianlly recorded in 1989, at a time when many of the production methods and musical styles on this album had not yet been explored.

posted a review of Yello. over 15 years ago
Yello has some really amazing songs. It's a shame that they are viewed as sort of a "gimmick band" because of the song "Oh Yeah".

Definitely check out songs like "Bostich", "I Love You", "You Gotta Say Yes..." and see how influential they were.

They also have a horrible habit of releasing and re-releasing cds with either misspellings of the artist name or album title, or completely incorrect track information.

Excellent to drop one or two tracks from this label in a mix, tiresome if you try to play more. Many songs sound dated by the overuse of samples, but if you sift, you can find some real gems here.

Cheezy "cover" of the classic Kraftwerk song composed of samples of various Kraftwerk tunes with lame orchestra hits mixed in and a poor "rap" performance. Very dated sounding.

It's great to see a renewed interest in this kind of music, but it would have been even better for the track selection to have focused more on tracks that aren't as well known, or tracks that are harder to come by.
