This is one of my favorite electronic albums of the early double aughts. Madness I say! Listen to it again. Give it a chance. It will infect you eventually.

After carefully listening to Jóhan's entire discography this morning, I have chosen this album, Bees, as his most effective musical expression of the emotive thematic passages that manifest across his output. And despite this phenomenal young composer's ... See full review

Hmmm, ijustspeak, that last bit is just the most perfect sentiment for the man, which casts a wink and a flashlight upon the very unique sense of the very one-of-a-kind depth of the mind of Tom Waits that his lifetime fan base proudly possesses, and ... See full review

One of the, if not the, single most flawlessly written, technically brilliant, beautiful and respectful of its source material, modern re-imaginings of any classical piece ever made. A monumental achievement and one of the best collections of "classical ... See full review

Sigur Rós have some of the rarest vinyl releases of any artist. Their albums were pressed in strictly limited numbers and it seems that copies are changing hands for princely sums. In order to maintain the purity of the art and vision, Sig Ros ... See full review

One of the best Soul Deejay mixes ever, bar none. The selection, the mixing and the scratching are all flawless. Anytime I put this mix on at a party I get a huge response, more than any other mix in any genre. Everyone wants to know what it is and ... See full review
posted a review of Holden* - The Idiots Are Winning. over 12 years ago
So, it seems that a lot of people are not into "The Idiots Are Winning." I find it to be an excellent musical achievement. Holden uses some brilliant sounds on this album, constructing simple but effective rhythms and deconstructing harmonies into ... See full review

Absolutely stunning EP. All three tracks are gems and if you are a deejay, you will be hard-pressed to choose one to play out or on your hot new mixtape. Beautifully constructed disco-house to make your woman shake it all out.
posted a review of Dmitry Gren - Speicher 42. over 12 years ago
Maybe I'm the only one who really digs this record. I guess that the reason may be that it's not the usual in-the-closet-trance that kompakt releases. This record will appeal more to the abstract electro afficianado than it will to the kompakt deejay. ... See full review
posted a review of The Flirts - Passion. over 12 years ago
This track is so classic. One of Bobby Orlando's best productions and as fresh today as it was in 1982, possibly even fresher on the dancefloor since so many of today's partgoers have not been properly introduced and yet are more prepared to appreciate ... See full review

posted a review of Dexter vs. Cosmic Force - Noordhollandsche Ghetto Tracks. over 12 years ago
Dexter channels a classic electro sound sickness that once manifested itself as Drexciya. This record feels like both an homage to a fallen master and a maiden voyage into the murky depths of electro, past and present. At all times the beats are ... See full review

Straight sound design wizardry. All three tracks are superbly produced and oozing with quality.
posted a review of Trentemøller - Physical Fraction. over 12 years ago
Everybody talks about Physical Fraction and Rykketid, and do not get me wrong, they are amazing tracks, but the real winner here for me is Prana. Epic dubby depth of the soul beats and a processed Indian sitaresque vibe over the top combine to create a ... See full review

While picking this up does not excuse you from searching down Alden's classic 12" singles, it is undoubtedly a necessity, mostly bearing on the inclusion of a new track, Voyagers End. Voyagers End is one of Alden Tyrell's best tracks to date, with a ... See full review

No two ways about it, this is a very beautiful record. Mr. Ripperton has crafted an extremely emotional melody on Folks & Flakes that seems to settle the soul in a profound way. Traveller's melody builds upon itself in abstract, staccato harmonies. Both ... See full review

The End Of It All is John Tejada's sickest track to date. And I do not say that lightly. The man makes very few tracks that I would not dub as ill. Perfectly crafted beats and brilliant off time melodies create a harmonoius, dynamic beauty rarely ... See full review

Sozinho may be the sickest track that I have heard all year. This track has all the elements that make a sick track for me: ill beat, syncopated melting bleepy ridims, single note saw-tooth bass lines, a fat change half-way through . . . it just works ... See full review

To this day, I still lose my shit anytime I hear La Roc 01 dropped in a set . . . any set . . . one of the dopest songs of this millenium. I prefer Poney part 1 in my own sets. Altogether an amazing record. As stated above, except that I will likely ... See full review

Whoa . . . Flotter Feger is an amazing track. Shredding Electro bassline fuses into a techno shuffle only to be overtaken by melodic female musings and shimmering synths while all the while rolling with the thick bassline and the shuffling beat. A ... See full review

Ahhh . . . Thievery Corporation, the D.C. dons of dub downtempo. I was always proud growing up in Chocolate City, and when fellow Washingtonians Thievery Corporation released 'Sounds from the Thievery Hi-Fi' in 1996, I had never been more proud of the ... See full review

MDSLKTR's big muff remix is one of the hottest guitar based, acid tinged, electro mixes I've heard in a long ass time. Otto Von Schirach provides his best work IMHO on the extremely cut-up mashed IDM breakcore tip . . . tip . . . TIP! 5/5
