Feel free to browse, only a small portion of my 15000 + recordcollection is up here, still busy encoding the rest (if one day I get round to it).
Anyway .. Here's some stuff that marked my way ;-)

You can always try to swap/buy a record from my collection, you never know ;-)

posted a comment on Various - TSOB The Sound Of Belgium Vol. 2. over 7 years ago
These 12"s were never released seperatly (unlike volume 1 where every 12" was available seperately), some stores must have opened the box edition and sold the 12"s one by one ...
It's m'y compilation so you get the info from the source :)

This is one of these numerous "Uk" new beat mixes made in Antwerp, Ghent, Brussels or Aarschot. Belgian bootleggers were quite inventive when it came to giving labels a new home abroad to hide their misschief ;-) . On this one, hidden on the... See full review

This one ranks as about the best new beat record ever made. A work of art by mister Boccaccio himself "Eric Beysens". Who as one of the two innovating dj's (along with Olivier Pieters), drove the reputation of Belgiums New Beat temple Boccaccio to... See full review

If one record should be a true competitor for my alltime favourite tune this should be a close call. One of the most prolific producers from the Belgian Dance AND rock scene with his chef d'oeuvre. After a life as a bassplayer in Belgiums most out... See full review

Starting to describe record is quite hard. It was the only record that you actualy could buy at the dj booth in legendary club Boccaccio aka the "holy grail of new beat". With the whole wall plastered with the cover and the track itself hammered... See full review

This is most probably, imho, one of the most overlooked little beauties in "Inteligent dance music" . Not even the name 'Plaid' on the credits seems to attract the trainspotters to this one, well their loss.... Plaid deliver most probably one of their... See full review

This white label is actually the very incognito work of two famous Belgian producers. One very well known for all the Mad Mike lovers, the other more known to fans of the "Africanism sound". Anyway, they sampled the hell out of some Herbert track,... See full review

Massive hit in whatever you might call it ... By accident pushed the 33 instead of 45 button in the middle of the Tiga mix and ... Surprise ... Tiga used a chunk of Nerd's trademark rhythm of Snoop's "Drop it like it hot" ... Interesting .....
La Rolls - Sure Is

One of the weirder experiments in new beat's early days. Sounds like a couple of drummachines preparing for the ultimate riot agains the invasion of the killerbasslines ... Absolutely insane sounding even now, and probing back to 1988 this one was... See full review

The known track on this one is most probably "Erotmania", nice Dutch tribaly clubmusic that had it's royal share of success on the commercial circuit in the early 90's. Normaly I wouldn't really bother reviewing this one, not because I don't like it... See full review

Classic Belgian post new beat track by Olivier Abbeloos. A sureshot staple on the Uk scene with dj's like Sasha (in the North) and the London post hardcore scene dj's (in the South).This track is most possibly even more famous for being used all over... See full review

A small moment of genius of Belgium's premier Genesis P-Orridge styled girl/boy producer. Ahead of it's time these small scetchy hardcore breakbeat stop and go trax don't fail to impress in a set. Top moment being the fabulous "Hi-Fi Color" mix of... See full review

About the sickest tunes every assembled on a jungle ep I heard in my life. Gives you an instant belly-ache and a sense of utter an complete disorientation, as close to the sound of the interior of the head of a madman you could possibly get. Difficult... See full review

One of those records that seduced me to the darker side of jungle in late 1993. Dark intro, deep strings, major cut up breaks everything you can ask for in a 1994 junglist anthem. But : the magic in this one lies in the fabulous breakdown halfway... See full review

One of those crazy histories of Belgian new beat. L'EchoDechavanne was a record made as a revenge against French talkshowhost Christophe Dechavanne. Dechavanne had a popular show on French television called "Ciel Mon Mardi" in the 80's. In one episode... See full review

Someone's got to do the job I guess ;-)). This release without any comments is like blasphemy. "Far Out" was one of those tunes that shot to instant anthem the day of it's release, and it's still piloting in the higher realms of rave heaven up till... See full review

What a way to start a label !! Ultra talented B-boy Danny Breaks straight outta Essex ;-)), with his take on early bleeps and Breaks. The A-side sounds like a b-boys vision of early warp classics and a royal helping of Unique 3. Wicked low-end and... See full review
Digital Boy - Techno Beat

Appears to be a megamix in two seperate pieces at first sight. Sequencing together quite a lot of Italian (with some exceptions) hits of early 1990. But hidden on the B-Side is a seperate track by Digital Boy that I haven't seen anywhere else. Big one... See full review

How this guy later on degenerated into rave crap like "Orgasmico" and above all "El Gallinero ", the track with a bunch of chickens and a cock (the male chicken that is ;-))going on overload is an absolute mystery to me. But back to "La Musika... See full review

One of those 12"s that I can't resist to shuffle into almost every oldskool mix I do. Not very well known, except on the Belgian post New Beat scene. 5 very particular trax that all have their own sound and definition, and form one of the best 12"s... See full review

One of those trax that seem to be burned into my memory. Typical early 1992 Amsterdam sound, forming a counterweight against all the heavy hardcore stuff pumping out of Rotterdam and Belgium. Altough released on Groove Kissing, a Belgian label, this... See full review
Major Problem - Love Parasite

One of the first releases actually to carry the flag of SKIZZO, a short-lived term for Belgian post new beat music (just before it was called Belgian rave). This 12" is a primary example of the sound of Belgium in the late 80's. A cover version -... See full review

Absolutely classic track, sampled to pieces all over the place. One of the biggies in the Music Box and thus so re-released with panache on Danica. But shock : contrary to tons of unnecessary remixes this one gives an authentic 87 feel to Italo... See full review

Excellent not very well known house treasure. Strangely reminiscent of Master C&J's "In The City" anthem. Same kinda deep Chicago vibe, male spoken word, shivers down your spine profoundness & a guy talking about the madness in modern urban live. With... See full review

One of those little forgotten wonders from 1990, the year of the second revelation for Belgian dancemusic. Belgian producers were getting rid of the stigma of bad gimmicky pop newbeat and were beginning to move on to a sound that would later on evolve... See full review
Further - Nowhere Left To Run

A solid ep to say the least. Quirky minimal tactics on the a-side and the b2 track. But the real magic resides in Richard Davis rethink of the already magistral "Stone Cold". Davis, from Swayzak's 240 Volt label fame, adds his trademark violin strings... See full review

Another oddball release on this quite interesting label. "Catching spiders" is more Detroit than Uk, more head then feed, but underpinned with a deep bassrumble that keeps the floor moving. More sounding like a cross between early "Intelligent Uk... See full review
