Collector of EDM 1973-2001 preferably on 12".

I developed a genre system based on 3 features and time period. See my lists.
My lists are never finished, so I am open to suggestions; but please do set the bar high.

I collect, buy, play and sell for fun and to make space not to make money.

Originally a Freestyle House song, the best mix imo is the Garage City Mix. This mix transforms the track into a Garage House track.

"Drift" drove me to this record. Restless, deep uptempo Dub Techno. Works for me.

These kind of tracks are desperately in need of a vinyl release. The music industry is killing off vinyl by not releasing this.
There is a commercial viable demand for this on vinyl, but still they dont. Totally rediculous.

I understand the copy rights issues that can arise. However how difficult is it, if the publisher wishes not to issue tracks on vinyl, to mandate this to a quality issuer/distributer of vinyl in cases that the song becomes a bigger hit. I do think it is ... See full review

If taste for the genre (Euro House) is the problem of Wadsy; no problem but then dont bother to comment. If you do like Euro House your comment is strange as this track is a great example of what Euro House is about and for sure above average.

Top tune and a very important one in the development of R&B in the late eighties. Groundbreaking for the later New Jack Swing. As I am not into R&B very much, this one is the exception of them all. Yes it is Funk, however the R&B aspect is so strong and ... See full review

1977 Space Disco, proto Italo, proto HI-NRG depending on your point of listening. The middle piece (4:00 - 5:00) is very Giorgio Moroder alike Techno-Disco. Quality track.

In my opinion of Orlando's many productions is "True" one of the most important. It is raw, pure and abstract in it's genre. Of course Flirts Passion and Divine's Native Love are signature tracks. True is what it says, true Orlando style HI-NRG. 1986 is ... See full review

A non rare record of great importance. It is Industrial Disco to me, you may call it Synth Pop, but it is no Electro. It slammed all other stuff in 1983 and still is very strong and with little to compare. It just stands on it's own.
It crosses the ... See full review

The ultimate SKI-HUT hit of 2000/2001. Italo introduced the summer hit and much later the ski-hut hit. This is one of the best examples.

Astral Victory is the one in the Detroit tradition. Very enjoyable deep floating on constant bass & beat. And now I have listened to all up to 2016: it is their best track imho.
posted a comment on Darryl Pandy - Animal Magnetism (The Chicago House Remix). about 1 year ago
An average quality track, however the rare combination of HI-NRG Disco and Early (Chicago) House makes it interesting for the way music for the charts changed in the late eighties. (also the piano break is above average quality).
posted a comment on Julian "Jumpin" Perez Featuring Valentino (4) - Stand By Me. about 1 year ago
This is one of the great Jack House records from Chicago. Only the vocal version can be defined as Deep House. The only relevant mix is the Jumpin Dub which is no Deep House.

This DJ essentials series is really a help for me entering the 1992-2004 Hip Hop top tracks. Some are too much R&B to my liking but a lot of hard core Hip Hop and Dancable Hip Hop is there. A real short cut for my collection.

This mix captures the essence of the birth of House music in 1985 when House was just about to become a genre.
