DJ and huge music lover. Most of my vinyl has not yet been added to Discogs collection. I have a lot of Lists to make and update but unfortunately at this point I logged off permanently from the online world. As a result, any attempts to contact me will go on deaf ears - please do not contact me. I hope my various lists and ratings will help you with your music search!

Nothing in my stated collection is available for sale or trade, as I've already sold or donated considerable portion of it with exception to a a bunch of nostalgic specials.

As a DJ, I play mostly TOP 40/rock/hip-hop and newest pop music, because that is what most people listen to and expect to hear in my area.

However, my most favourite, important and memorable years for music were 1987-1999. My Discogs collection and release ratings reflect my music taste more accurately. That is the kind of music I listen to on my own time. My Discogs collection consists mostly of CDs, and my record collection has not been added yet.

Music preference: 90s rock, old-school electronic music, for all the below genres of music stated, mostly circa 1975-2005.

My personal favourite music genres, music that I love the most (in that order):

Almost every style of house music (1984-2012): Italian, Funky, Hard, Progressive, Jazzy, Disco, Garage, Nu Disco, Deep House (mainly I am a fan of 1990s house);
Trance 1988-2005 (almost all styles of trance);
Techno / Detroit Techno (1984-1999) and music inspired by it (i.e. Joris Voorn, Funk D'Void, Steve Rachmad);
Eurodance / Euro House / Italodance (1988-1998);
Italo-Disco / Spacesynth / Underground Disco;
Ambient / New Age;
Drum 'N Bass (preferrably deep, jazzy, atmospheric);
Acid, Hardstyle / Hardcore / Gabber, Smooth Jazz / some Jazz.
