I really enjoyed watching these trippy 80s/90s CGI animations over the "Lifeforms" album medley. Pity it only goes for 13 minutes at most.

This video would probably blow your mind if you were high on a something at the time of watching.

If you're a fan of Lifeforms, I'd recommend this album.
Love it! :-D

First D&B vinyl I ever owned. Still sounds great :-)

Chook announced on his Facebook page (13/06/17) that this is to be the last release on the Full Force Recordings label. Perhaps he isn't interested in producing D&B any longer and focusing solely on Monophona instead?

Otherwise, great release to ... See full review

Sounds fantastic. If you like the sound of Nickbee's tunes (as I do) then you'll really like this album.

The sounds on this EP are some of Nickbee's best work to date. 5/5

Can someone identify the version of "Condor - Velvet Dreams" Bexta used for this mix? It doesn't seem like any of the 2 tracks on this vinyl:

The original version and Bostik remix are the same as what appear on the CDM version.

What bought my attention to this remix was the #2 mix of 'Music'. This track actually sounds like a very early version of the track "Passing By" from his LP "Rush".
posted a review of Darude - Rush. over 7 years ago
Say what you want about Darude, this album absolutely blew me away. This album does not compare to his other two albums because this one sits on a whole different level sound wise. This album can stimulate, exhilarate, lull and soothe.

So let's look at ... See full review

An absolute landmark LP in the drum & bass universe. The whole album has dark brooding melodies that will take you to a strange tangent. I wonder if Ed Rush or Optical knew what sort of waves they'd be making or paths they'd be paving with this album ... See full review

Absolutely alluring album. I think that even listeners outside of the Goa/Psy/Progressive trance genre can joy this, but possibly not to its full intended potential.

The whole album paints beautiful pictures and shapes on your mind with Cosma's timeless ... See full review

I don't have the words to describe how powerful or influential this album is for me. Even if you aren't a NIN fan, give it a listen because it is moving to say the least.

Phace have evolved significantly from the time of the last review. Yet, they still maintain that signature Phace sound and have gone into territories on crazy future funk beats that where previously unheard of.

It looks as though Phace's future is on ... See full review

It's worth noting that the track lengths of 'Reptile' and 'The Downward spiral' on CD 1 are different to that of the original 1994 release.

Why, oh why the Big Beat genre has mostly vanished is totally beyond me.

This album was so ahead of its own time and I still get an enjoyable listen when I play it today, 15 years after its release. It will forever remain one of my favourite albums of ... See full review

The Marco V remix is truly amazing. IMO, it is the best remix of this absolute classic that I have heard to date. It brings the original to a whole new level whilst maintaining its original vibe so well.

The vocal sample from "Simplicity" is from Darude's "Feel The Beat (JS16 Dark Remix)". This original quote was written on the front of Cosma's album 'Simplicity' (dated 2001).

Total masterpiece. Chook & Phace prove that they are masters of the art by dropping this absolutely killer collab on Full Force.

Awesome release by N.Phect here!

Seduction - Deep, heavy drums in a dark, mysterious atmosphere that WILL cut deep into you especially when played on a big stereo. It's so bewildering it's actually kinda freaky. This is my favourite tune on the EP and ... See full review

'Sidechain' is an alias for the collab of New Zealand's Bulletproof, Teknik & Cern. This is their first release under their alias.

I'm not a real Deadmau5 fan per say, but I really enjoyed this release!

The original remix is a great tune. I'm sure I won't have to introduce it to Deadmau5 fans because it's already on the mixed version of Random Album Title. Really nice on the dance ... See full review

Both tracks are nice deep minimal tech funk by our Spanish producers Krone and Malsum. Both tunes roll easily and really well. Watch out for those big grumbling bass lines on both tracks!

Finally good to see SLR get back into the swing of things!

For the A side, N.Phect brings us a tune called "The Unquiet". This one is a bit of a thumper. Nice distorted guitars coupled with some hard banging drum beats. It's comparable to what he ... See full review

This would have to be my favourite 'Instra:Mental' release to date.

Two radical tunes new tunes by Billian.

Both tracks 'Probes' and 'Horus 8' are just what you'd come to expect from Billian. Pure, solid, fast-paced neurofunk. IMO, this is his best release to date.

Two absolute thumpers from Subtitles. One of 2007's best D&B vinyls.

Spor's "Molehill" features some hard rolling bass lines woven nicely through a squelchy acid line to compliment the whole tune. Goes on for a little too long IMO. Great Spor tune never ... See full review
