This is a very unique album, featuring the first-ever solo contribution from one of the members of a seminal British duo Autechre. Despite the reputation of true stalwarts of creative freedom and all things independent, the 'reasonable people' behind ... See full review

Truly an amazing album... While Skatebård is not always brought up in the conversation about 'norsk disco' sound, this record had immediately placed him on the top of the list of my all-time favorite albums from Norway! Reminds me some of the deepest and ... See full review

RRR-1000 is a third installment in the RRRecords’ epic locked grooves saga. It all started with a groundbreaking and visionary RRR-100 in 1993 – one of the first ever ‘music’ (i.e. not a purely utilitarian DJ tool) records consisting ... See full review

Perhaps not most of them, but some loops were certainly sampled/extracted by Ron Lessard himself without authorization and/or knowledge of the artists - not necessarily with a malicious intent to rip them off and infringe someone's copyright, but also ... See full review

This album has an interesting history – for starters, the whole Art & Electronics label was a very unique and unprecedented business enterprise, only possible at a certain period at the very end of the USSR. The Soviet state became liberal enough ... See full review
