My profile?! It's bulbous, but as my favorite past-time is scratching my butt and smelling my fingers afterwards, I really don't care about appearances....they can be deceiving! I'm a lonley disco dancer because men like monkeys club together.

No comment...I mean, for me, there's nothing to say about this guy's music and the indelible marks his music has left on my cortex. So many times he hits marks like no one else has ever hit...Groove Essentials, Jose Cheena, RBS were/are classics.

Rydim Come Forward is a remix of a classic that didn't gain anything by remixing...Mad Ragga Jon's slower more tripper version is a must-have for anyone into breaks.

I get all misty when I hear this, but then I got all misty listening to it when it was released. Such a sad sentimentalist. Something in it reminds me of childhood, maybe some similar sample sounds used in UK 70's kids programs. Love it!

A! How come no comments. This is one of my favourites of Mr Magic but I'm slightly confused by the credits. Martin Bonds aka Reel by Real released Serene and Sundog in 1991. This according to Discogs came out in 1991 but I got it in 1993...Anyway, ... See full review
