hey sellers, why not just sell this for 150 bucks? Or 250? Why 50? You want to make money with the internet market and sold out new records, why not exploit it to the limits? You feel the moral guilt rising up and want a reasonable compromise or is it ... See full review

This is a great compilation for people new to Neue Deutsche Welle and/or to record collecting in general, as you can find it easily in german bargain bins or flea markets for 1 or 2 Euros. Some smashers featured here, like Trio, Ideal, Deo, Extrabreit ... See full review

Found this in the bargain bin. A Side is a nice mix of better Disco Classics and the voiceover is not as bad as on comparable mixes. B Side is boring, but still worth to get for A Side if not too expansive.

Big pleasure to listen to. Nice Acid line, great guitar, crazy feeling overall. I wonder why it still does not share the same fate like the Macho Brother in terms of selling prices.

One of my personal highlights from 2017 12'' so far. This record is great in any aspects. Just look at this beautiful artwork and label design. I really like the simplistic approach, being a stark contrast to the way todays movies present ... See full review

Still worth to get. Superb Babs Santini artwork and B Side, which isnt on the repress, is essential in my opinion. Glad i got this 10 years ago.

All of the dij tapes from steelkraft i've listened to so far are very high quality reissues. (But what ends, rose clouds, all pigs must die and the wall of sacrifice)

The Marcel Dettmann remix makes a good track great. It adds just what it needs: speed and harsher beats. And with the Tom of Finland artwork, you can never go wrong!

Great vibes on A1, brings me nostalgic feelings of my trancy childhood, playing self recorded cassettes from a trance radio show while constructing miniature models of dark rides.
A2 is somewhat darker than the rest, with nice pulsing acid lines dripped ... See full review
posted a review of Simple Symmetry - Plane Goes East - DJ Tennis Reworks. 5 months ago
Both DJ Tennis reworks are, in my opinion, better than the source. The Plane Goes East Rework is just outstanding. I cant get enough of that fat layered drums and the simple background synths, gathering to a thick atmospheric ending.

I got this one recently, and i'm glad i did so. Most of the tracks here immediately invited me to a repeated listen, just when the needle hit the first grooves. Comparable to the better Philomena or Hivern releases in my opinion. Having listened to 7 and ... See full review

If you are into fruity, juicy, cosmic, tropic disco, just get this. I like both sides, they have the same laid-back mood, though i consider the B edit a bit more dancable. Kind of surprising Slammer release if you know his Bonus7 tracks. Nice development ... See full review

I think the rise is caused by the fact that "just wanna" is a fresh and innovative track. Especially the bassline is very physical and vibrating. I cant remember that i listened to something coming close to that. I dont know Ben UFO but i think the logic ... See full review

One of the best birthday presents i've made so far to myself. :)

One of the 2016 highlights for me so far. Bought this for the crazy synthworks on A1, though the other tracks become more interesting every time i have them spinning. A2 and B1 are nice, progressive and functional tracks for the dancefloor. B2 is slower, ... See full review
