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.

I do not answer request for buying items from my collection. I do not answer requests for digital versions.

You are too harsh, some tracks are slightly flat. But on a good sound system you can still blast the tracks without distortion.

All what you say is true. However for Gabbers who dig into the past, this record fits in their 1990 list of pre-historic relevant list.

This to me is one of the better tracks. Relentless, restless on the move, dark, great classic house elements. Hard to classify: no its not Acid, no its not Deep House, its not Rave either or typical Club House. It is probably all of these sub-genres put ... See full review

I would classify it as Italo. Eventhough the music leans more to disco in general than Italo, the lyrics are too cheesy (and the bad-english) not to classify it as Italo Disco. The production style can also be identified as Italo. So Italo Disco for me.

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

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.

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 or if you will "Supernature". Quality track.
