Just can't resist the great sound from Belgium '87 - '95

Collectors & crate diggers since '90 of many different styles of ♫ ♪ HOUSE MUSIC ♪ ♫

From New Beat to Hands Up!, from Hardcore to Trance & from Hardstyle to Acid.

The birth of my collection:

First (legal) cassette: Turn Up The Bass - Volume 15 / Snap! - World Power
First cassette single: Apotheosis - O Fortuna
First cd: House Party - The Ultimate Megamix
First cd-single: Moby - Go
First 7'': Sequencial - Psychotronic
First 10": Ectomorph - 9
First 12'': Asylum - Hardcore Asylum

My interest in music began at an early age, recording music on cassette from the radio in the early 80's. Radio stations like Radio Monique, Radio Caroline and of course Hilversum 3 were my favorites.
Also some family members were involved in an illegal local radio show that broadcasted only on Saturday's.

Later I discovered "Vara's Vuurwerk", a radio show, hosted by Henk Westbroek, that played rock & metal. This way I was introduced to a whole new kinda music, which was way harder than I ever heard before. (not knowing of what was coming in the 90's of course:) )
Discovering bands like Slayer, Anthrax, Metallica & Suicidal Tendencies (Institutionalized, Yes !!)

Somewhere in the summer of '85 I heared a track on the local fair which caught my attention, which was Paul Hardcastle - 19 (Extended Version).
It was a complete surprise because I never heard anything like it. You didn't hear this kinda music on the radio, they didn't gave electronic music much attention these days.
Still it would take 2 more years before I would abondon rock & metal music completely. (except for the Red Hot Chili Peppers & massive respect to Queen!!! )

At the age of 11, M|A|R|R|S - Pump Up The Volume was a revelation to me and from there on I was hooked on these crazy sounds.

I got Infected by the new beat / techno sound from our great Southern Neighbours (Belgium of course !) in the late '80's & early '90s.
Spending hours & hours listening to Channel X, from Belgium. The one & only real house station ever !

Nowadays on Channel X

Also the 'For Those Who Like To Groove' radio show hosted by Robin Albers & the Dance Top 30 hosted by Martijn Krabbé had a big influence on me.
Not to mention the Turbulentie & Hardcore Power radio shows from Rotterdam 😀

Interested in house music & the many different styles that appeared from it.
Like New Beat, Acid, Techno, Rave, Hardcore, Gabber, Trance, Eurohouse, etc.

Also a big fan of the legendary DJ Ruffneck / Patrick van Kerckhoven (aliases/collaborations) (since Asylum - Hardcore Asylum) , Ruffneck Records & sublabels, Ruffex, Supreme Intelligence, Gangsta Audiovisuals, Enzyme, etc.

I also like to mix some tunes when I have time for it.

New Thunderdome cd, always a nice thing...
But in this case it's a real disappointment. 24 Tracks per disc, at first I thought it was a mix. But it only contains edits & bad remixes of tracks. Some tracks don't even last 2½ minutes. The biggest bummer ... See full review

Great Ruffneck release on beautiful marbled wax & a with nice designed sleeve.
Ruffneck delivers in my opinion the best release so far, since the label's revival in 2018.

Ah great, finally there's a copy for a normal price. I bought this for € 14,99
Normally I always go for the original release, but that's an expensive one these days. Still hoping to find one in the future though.

I don't like the remix either , it's too ... See full review
