Dear valued customer, I hope you will be happy to know that all proceedings of sales of my items will be spent on musical software. Thus by buying from me, you will indirectly fund developers of audio production software.

Money I have received so far have for instance been used to buy software from independent developers like CL-Projects, Synth Magic, BigTick and Homegrown Sounds, too mention just a few.

My main interests lie in new wave/synthpop and ambient-techno, but I listen to all sorts of electronic and progressive music. My favourite records of all time are something like this.

Out of Namlook's mainly releases, this has to rank among the best IMO, very involved, lost of things going on, changes happening mid-track, a great allround IDM album.

I don't hate it, I just find it their least engaging album. Compared to other artists it is pretty good, but I have come to expect the very best from the Hartnolls.

After the misguided "Crash & Burn" and "In The Nude" albums, this is a great return to form and their own roots.

I wonder what was the original mix of Ventolin? To take one comparison, The Coppice Mix is VERY different from the Salbutamol Mix. One common denominator is that distortion is used on the beats, but that is about it. The 10 Aphex Twin tracks on the... See full review

The mix from Havana's "Shift" to Hardfloor's "Acperience" is pure genius, and Andrew Souter only ever did one mix CD ? That is a waste of great talent.

Peace (Humate Remix) is super, it starts minimal, but like a flower opens up, and from around the midpoint it goes places. This is what remixing is about!

Released in 2018, it sounds like it had stayed in the can since the mid-90s. And that is not a bad thing, this is pleasant classic listening.

I like Feller when doing downtomp, but his TLBjr stuff I stay clear off. The kick drum in general is mixed far too loud in the mix, and little EQ or FX is applied, it just goes bang, bang, bang, bang from start to finish.

Super release, both the remixes are excellent, taking the original to upbeat heights yet staying faithful to the source. That is what remixing is about in my opinion.

Not essential listening, but worth checking out for those into that ambient-techno-trance sound of the early/mid-90. Much more holistic than the follow up "Isolation".

Tracks are kept too long in the mix, Smith & Selway "Move!" is a DJ tool at best, nothing to play out for 6 minutes.
The mix lacks a feeling of a journey, CD1 pumps and pumps and ends with "Natious - Amber (Silk Mix)" not a classic in anyone's... See full review

This is my kind of drum and bass, really involved drum programming, none of the easy rolling techstep kind. However the album is sharply divided between drum and bass and triphop/downtempo, it would maybe have been better to have released "Mermaids,... See full review

Timeless was released 18 months before this album, that is quite some time in the fast moving genre bending world of 90's dance. But I agree "Slow Motion" is a disc that have stood the test of time.

The annoying tabla loop that runs for 10 minutes during "A Kind Of Prayer", and the kitsch piano tinker on top of "Sheap?" makes this difficult listening.
By Truth/True they finally get into some kind of groove.

Had he put on an intro and outro, and made a continuous mix of Be As One, Heart of Imagination, Arkham Asylum, Ohmna, that would have been pretty good album of 1996, 50 minutes+

Mix Two is really La Creme De La Creme, excellent showcase of that sound 1993-96. "Cowgirl" being kept in the mix for almost 20 minutes is like the definition of Progressive House.

So many Prog House tunes just pump in the same bass key all the way through. Wired (The Stonk Remix) goes to show how refreshing and uplifting it is to play with the key of bass.

Art Of Time is an excellent track, uplifting with a satisfying nasty lead line, it can fit both in a Prog House and IDM set. It is amazing that according to Discogs credits it has never been included in a DJ Mix !?

Excellent mix, that twist and turns and builds up to raison d'être Humate's "3.1" which should have been played out to close the mix. "Human Behaviour (Underworld Dub 2)" becomes just a stuck on appendix after that.

Not really a mix, tracks are rather segued together, and sadly harsh in many places both in tempo and key. The track selection is very good though, so one would have wished for an unmixed compilation.

I was thinking about what happened to Speed Garage, the hyped genre of 1997, and this is a result, one of the most popular releases of 1999. So UK Garage is viable, more than just hype.
