Music collector since 1984, started early at age 13... collected vinyl until the early 90’s when vinyl pretty much disappeared from the
mainstream stores.
Collecting CD’s since 1990 until present date.

Started tracking down some old records that were not available where I grew up.

Enjoy synthpop, electronica, trance, profressive and chill out.

They were very big and authentic, and obscure, not mainstream like Depeche Mode, who eventually ended up doing Music for the Masses, literally, everyone listened to them. As for Cetu Javu, it would only be heard at some very select night clubs in Mexico ... See full review

Can Blank and Jones designate some seller of their products for USA territory? Would love to be able to purchase the items from direct distributors, and not 3rd party resellers.

why even bother with a remix of this mega classic from the absolute golden age of Trance? thix mix is bland, boring, and just has no reason to exist.

I am impressed, this two set of mixes, does a fair update to a timeless classic... It does not add of the gimmicky EDM trash that today floods the airwaves... A CD or vinyl release should be in order, it is deserved.

This record pressing company has a terrible reputation among vinyl enthusiasts.. Apparently they churn out very low quality pressings. Do a web search and find multiple reviews stating the lack of detail which such pressings are done.

They do have some jewels in the remixes.. specially early on in their career, up to probably the 1993 era, with mixes by Jam & Spoon and Sasha (DJ Sasha).. after that, yes, they commissioned mixes from weird artists that utterly destroyed the original ... See full review

Your review is now 15 years old, and you may be right, but to today's standard, Blank & Jones are a fine act in electronic music. Miss those days, before it all turned to EDM crappola.

Pete Tong has been around for far many more years than todays crappy EDM purveyors of cacophony.. Tong has been handpicking great electronic music since the early 90's way before any millenials jumped on the EDM bandwagon ruining the scene.

Their Mix of Pet Shop Boys Burn, and Undertow is quite disgusting, but it does follow suit with their own releases. Painful to listen to, EDM has gone to the bitter end!
