(Updated 8/28/08)

Hello and thanks for checking out my profile! I've been away from the database for a few months, but I've returned.

I have an overwhelming music CD collection--much of it is classic rock and hard rock/metal. However, my collection of electronic/dance music has grown to take up a third of my CD collection; so far, all my submissions to Discogs are from this genre. I also have a massive collection of LP's (2/3 of them are comedy) and a huge number of cassettes as well.

As far as oggers go, I'm different. I'm actually in my fourteenth year working as a high school mathematics teacher in the small city of Las Vegas, New Mexico (yes, New Mexico, the U.S. state), but I do something unique on the side; I provide music for our school's athletic events, playing crowd-oriented tunes during the pre-game warmups and time-outs (and sometimes I share 'air-time' with our marching band). Some students and staff have given me the nickname "Boom Boom."

My mixes combine various subgenres of electronic music with classic rock/oldies, early R&B/funk, punk/new wave, hard rock/metal, Latin/Tex-Mex, and hip-hop/rap. My preferred electronic styles are Eurodance, early tech/house, hip house, hard house, hard trance, and hardstyle.

Sports I've played music for include basketball (boys and girls), football, volleyball, baseball, softball, soccer, and wrestling. The style of mix I play depends on the sporting event involved.


I'm administering a Discogs forum on Sports Music, and I encourage anyone to join. You may list your favorite tech/rock/oldies tunes played during sporting events around the world, share your thoughts on these tunes, or even suggest an underrated or ignored tune with the potential to be a real crowd-pleaser (such as Paffendorf's "Where Are You?"). I will make one simple request, though; please keep the forum free of cuss words.


Below is a list of favorite electronic artists (grouped by subgenre or style). Some are in my collection and/or wantlist:

MCL (Micro Chip League), Voyou, C.C.C.P.

2 Unlimited, Playahitty, Masterboy, Corona, La Bouche, Scatman John,, Tempo (featuring Manola)

Paffendorf, Perfect Phase, Warp Brothers, Scooter, Beateater, Klubbheads/Drunkenmunky

DJ Infiniti

DuMonde, Binary Finary, Barthezz, Ayla, Storm, Ferry Corsten (mixes, projects)

Gary D., VooDoo & Serano, Cosmic Gate, Accuface, T-78, Artic-Zone, Strider(2), Pacific Link, Ralph Novell, Bas & Ram

Blutonium Boy, Nightbass DJ Team, Le Brisc, DHHD, Chiren, Midi J, Spacestorm, Technoboy, Speedwave, Hardstyle Guru, Droid, Insecto, Pincky/Sisma DJ


My collection and wantlist in Discogs are both available for browsing. I prefer CD's, but I'm starting a collection of 12" singles. My most wanted items are:




SMILES & MORE - Jet Set Life


DR. BOMBAY - Rice & Curry (CD Album)
DR. MACDOO - Under The Kilt (CD Album)

(both above releases are novelty dance)

<B>I do need to downsize my collection! </b>
I have just opened an eBay store (Phrank's Great Escapes Megamedia) and am selling off a good portion of my collection (so far, just my more collectible AOR/rock/metal CD's). However, if you are seriously interested in any EDM CD's listed in my collection, contact me through Discogs' email system; I'll consider either a sale or a trade for something in my wantlist. If you had tried to get a hold of me within the past six months or so, I'm sorry if I had not responded; I will go through my e-mails and get back to you.


I do my best to check sources and collect as much info as possible for pending submissions. Having said this, I continue to appreciate all the help and support I've received from the Discogs community, and I will continue to set high standards as a member.

Keep visiting this page, as I will be updating it with other news and information. Take care, be your best, and DO your best!

The track listing for the Russian reissue is in a different order than listed here and on the back insert and booklet. It was also incorrect on WMP. "Monster Mania" is Track 7, and the other subsequent tracks follow in order from 8-11, from "Do What... See full review

"When The Sun Goes Down" is a fine example of well-crafted, adventurous hard trance. Driven by hard-pounding rhythms, a few well-arranged bass kicks, a memorable euphoric break, and an intense dancefloor-stomping finale, this track is among Tessarollo... See full review
