Otaku - Percussion Obsession

Lol, guy asking 90 GBP for this! Roll up, roll up...you suckas. Honestly, it's just hype. Percussion Obsession (the original), is the only one of interest, the others are non-events. It chugs along nicely, but it's nothing out of the ordinary, it's... See full review

Did Elisa Burchett ever live in Paris? I used to work in a bar called La Casbah I was sure she did to...Underrated vocal, sampled all over the place: Dance Fever (John Aquaviva) Woman In Love (https://www.discogs.com/master/118880-Dance-Fever-A-Woman-In-Love) See full review

It sounds like proto-goa music to me. So if you're into dancing on beaches, prickly heat and violent bouts of diarrhea from cheap food stalls because you really wanted your pink dreadlocks to blend into the local population, you'll probably like it.... See full review

I wonder...pretty rare to hear anyone speak it, let alone in this context, I hope you're not in it for the Xyrem, lol. Back in about 1985 I was really marked by this film adaptation (https://youtu.be/RJc4I6pivqg) of the true story of the play 'The... See full review

Sadly, not one of Tees finest (imho) especially in a period where everything he did was gold. On the upside it does contain a sample which will have any raver going misty eyed: (Mundo Muzique) Revelations - First Power: https://youtu.be/xP_32iwZOkI

The cadence of Jarvis' 91 'Timpini,' organ stabs and pitch are 'very' close to Jay Dee's Plastic Dreams of 92.

I saw him in a club in Bath UK circa 86 he did the same thing got up on my table and squealed away...I always wondered if it was out of hate or love, very "in your face." I wish I'd seen him when he was doing his puppet shows.

A lot of stuff on DJax at this time (this isn't a critique) was sparse/aquired taste, but this is classic/melodic deep house/techno and still stands as a quality release today (IMHO). Future Shock is a top quality tune, but it's 'Real Space' and 'May... See full review

This was a definite anomali when it came out. Never got played out much in the UK, too cerebral for the raves, but was a mix-tape/chilling out favorite. I love how the organ sneaks in a Sound of Music riff from "My Favourite Things." In fact, it's... See full review

Milestone, and killer album, one of those creations that comes out of nowhere and was a big step for hip-hop and ragga in UK forming it's own sound. Did a lot for UK music, and up and coming 'youth,' especially after Record Breakers (Kid's TV in UK):... See full review

Total agreement with the comment below about the video on youtube. Mind blowingly good! However, listening to the poor sound recording alone (without the video) is pointless.

Guy below wrote "An insanely ahead of it's time track for 1983." Do what?! Electro goes back to the 50's, (off the bat...the theme to Doctor Who by Delia Derbyshire) and probably beyond. The above track sounds pretty 'handbag' to me, compared to... See full review

I initially got into Bas Noir via the piano break used by Unique 3 in "Weight for the bass (3 ton mix)" from My Love is Magic and bought this also. Personally, I think this release is not as strong, but it's redeemed by the brilliant 'Dub mix' and the... See full review

Apart from Fonda Rae's version being the original, her "Touch Me" sounds loads less dated and basically classy compared to this "Scott Waterman Aitken inhaled the pot...honest they did, it's true daddy-o! (mix)" Garbage!

Burn to the spliff...."Burn two spliff and rock to the riddem, Rub two dub burn Ital collie..." from 'Don't Let It Pass You By' UB40 1981. It's interesting that many UK tunes used samples which linked directly to the shared experiences (from pop, TV,... See full review

Worth the purchase for 'Daybreak.' A memorable Mr Monday. Well played out, and still playable today as it's not dated by that 80/90 skippy break you hear ad infinitum on 80/90 UK Chessey Quaver tunes. Daybreak, like the title suggests is an early... See full review

The Weatherall and Parker "Gimme Some Love" remixes of "Lovers" on the LP always remind me of the tolling bells in Fini Tribe's "De Testimony." De-Testimony is a bit of a milestone in 80's industrial music crossing over to the funkier side of the... See full review

No, contrary to erroneous comments below, the sample is actually: "Mister cook?" "Yes!" "Your son is fed.." "...fried off some French toast." "Noooo!" It was sampled from Gordon Ramsey's Kitchen Nightmares. Hence the initial title "Mr. cooks nightmare."
