The Clarence Locksley tracks are amazing indeed. I Haven't Got A Home by Ramblin Hi Harris is brilliant as well. All together this is a great release containing material from some obscure bluesman. 5/5 for sure.

What a great track this is. I actually like all the versions on this record. Technopella and the House mix are my favorites I think. I can't really desrcibe what makes this track so special. but I'll try. The sinister obscure atmosphere in combination ... See full review

Being the first Drexciya release, this record has to be historical. It's the beginning of the very impressive Drexciya legacy. This record immediately shows the great diversity in athmospheres and producing capabilities these Drexciya guys posses(ed). ... See full review

The Tingler has to be my favorite hardcore/techno track from the early 90's, maybe together with some UR stuff. This is just overwhelming hardkicking sick dancefloor music, it will blow your brain right out! These FSOL guys just can make whatever kind of ... See full review

Firekeeper has to be a classic. One of the finest pieces made by The Martian. It has an ongoing warm techno vibe with alot of funk in it. But the strings really make this track so special. Dancefloor killer for sure!

The B side also contains only one ... See full review

Scorn is a very interesting alias of Mick Harris, my favorite to be exact. Harris in my opinion is a master in programming beats with great drum structures. This album, maybe together with Greetings From Birmingham, has to be the best album to date from ... See full review

Unlike later work of Drexciya this album contains mostly hardkicking dancefloor killer beats alongside sick aquatic electronic elements to create amazing electro. Tracks like Living On The Edge and Aquabon contain great elements of funk. They are two of ... See full review

This record is legendary in my opinion. Just recently I got the ID for this track, before I'd heard it a dozen of times on electro parties but I never knew what the track title was.

The feeling this track gives me is hard to describe. The pure beauty ... See full review
posted a review of Urban Tribe - Biohazard 17284. over 11 years ago
This is one hell of a sick record. If you buy this one you can expect heavy dark electronics over hard kicking beats and nice vocoders. It is beyond 'normal' electro, it has an experimental edge to it. Therefore it fits right into the Rephlex catalogue ... See full review

This is the most recent Ultradyne release, as many previous records released on their own label Pi Gao Movement. The record kicks of with A1 Law of the Land, this is not one of the strongest Ultradyne tracks. But A2 Sacrifice 101 certainly is track to ... See full review

Another great Ultradyne record. The first track on this record is one of the best track produced by Ultradyne, Black Panther. The great hardkicking beat and nasty electronics create a dancefloorkiller. Umen is a beautiful composition, these guys can ... See full review

This must be one of the best releases from 2005. I first heard an Acidwolf track at a party, not so long ago. A dj I knew opened with Withered Sum, A2. I was just stunned and amazed by this great delicate electronic composition. So after his set I asked ... See full review

This is a very nice release from Lory D. I love most of his stuff, including this one.

The A side is pretty much electro orientated. I especially like A2, this is a electro dancefloor killer with a little bit of an acid touch to it. The B side only ... See full review

This is a great minimalistic dark electro record. On of the best Ectomorph releases in my opinion. All four tracks are very solid productions. Electro just how I like it.

This LP is definately the most extreme James Stinson release in terms of experimentation. The tracks do have the typical Drexciyan beats, but the whole atmosphere is rather different; at some times freaked out, but very interesting. This LP will take you ... See full review

Energy is the best way to describe this 6 track record from the Ultradyne collective. Rugged, tough and heavy; I love it all. Their sound is indeed Evil..

Cities in Ruin is the track that gets things started on this record. It's a no nonsense track, a ... See full review

This has to be one of the best Ultradyne releases so far. The sick rough and dark sound, which they are well known for, is all over the place on this record. Real braincracking shit, from start till the end.

This is by far the most experimental release from the hands of Gerald Donald. His earlier releases under this Der Zyklus monniker are far from experimental, they are mostly plain, some times deep, dancefloor electro tracks.

Together with Grava 4 this must be the greatest Drexciya album. It features more, rather short, tracks than the other albums. Due to these short tracks Drexciya allowed themselves to expose a great diversity in electronic sounds to the world. It turned ... See full review

It is very tough to capture the magic of this incredible album in a few words. It is indeed one of the greatest Drexciyan albums to have ever been released. I have to say this release has a more normal sound than L.I.F.E. Some tracks will indeed work on ... See full review

The last album released by Drexciya. I think it is the best one (together with Netune's Lair maybe). This album has a complete sound of it's own (just as all the other Drexciya albums). It is clear that the sound of Grava 4 is very different than earlier ... See full review
