This is not the original 1988 version but some kind of new edit/remix which sounds to me even better than the original versions. Maybe because the beat is a bit stronger in this one and therefor a bit better to use in mixes than the original versions.

Not a wellknown record which can easily be overlooked when searching for one of the finest housetracks of 1996. If it wasn't for an Outland Records package which I received some years ago, I wouldn't even known that one of my favorite Dutch house tracks ... See full review

This record has one of the nicest sleeve concepts ever. It contains the slime stuff we used to play with when we were kids. However, the slime which has been put in the sleeve contains only one big problem: it will dry up unfortunately. Try to keep this ... See full review

For me this is one of the best house records ever produced. Each song is a real killer in its own way. Loops & Tings and Psycho Strings became the big classics on this record, but the real masterpiece is Boo-Ya and is one of my most favorite songs ever. ... See full review

Depends on how people grade. Someone can grade a record with 5 stars, when it has just one good track on it and somebody else can grade it with 5 stars if all tracks are great. 30 tracks which are great on record should mean it's a a masterpiece, but ... See full review

I've always liked the original version of Aslyum, but when I heard the Digital Boy remix back in 1997 it really blew my mind. What a great remix! What I like the most is the use of complex drum patterns and I suppose these are one of the weirdest drum ... See full review

Aad de Mooy was a real pioneer for the Dutch housescene and became instant "famous" with one of the biggest houseclassics ever, named "Yaaaaaaaaaah / Technotrance". From there it looked like he never left his studio when checking his amazing discography. ... See full review

Although I don't own this record (I have the tracks on the ESP Records releases), I have to mention that these tracks were way ahead of their time. When I listened to this record last year (2010), I really thought these were new tracks. They sound so ... See full review

It's a real shame this producer never got the credits which he earns so much. In my opinion one of the best techno producers of the Netherlands ever (next to Orlando Voorn and Jochem Paap). His discography is just pure insane as I just can't name one ... See full review

The big smasher on here is "Ohh Babehhh" ofcourse, but there is another great track on it, which is "Rhythm". Ronald Winkel actually wrote a bit of hardcore history with this track in my opinion. Most kickdrums used in gabbermusic around 1993 were ... See full review

The Rave Mix remixed by Damon Wild and Ray Love sounds quite similar to Toxic Two - Rave Generator (produced by the same producers).

For me Peter Slaghuis is a true legend, because he introduced me in the late '80s at a young age with housemusic. I will never forget the first time I heard tracks like "Jack To The Sound Of The Underground" on the radio. And although it has been almost ... See full review

Although there are more housetracks containing Batman samples, this must be the finest of them all. All the sounds and samples perfectly match with eachother, where other producers have failed in doing this. I especially like the laugh of "The Riddler" ... See full review
posted a comment on Gimmick - Why You Wanna Hurt Me. over 7 years ago
Gimmick - Why You Wanna Hurt Me was a (small) clubhit here in The Netherlands in 1997 when hardly anyone heard of Armin van Buuren. In that time he mostly produced clubhouse tracks, before he started making trance and this is definitely my favorite one.

The M.I.S.T Dub remix of 9 By 9 can be played on 45 rpm as well as on 33 rpm. On 45 rpm it's a fast drum 'n bass track, and because it's too fast for me, I always play it on 33 rpm. Then the track will become much slower, but still sounds great. In my ... See full review
