I love all kinds of music from Mozart to The Ramones. From Beethoven to Plastikman. I love it all, can't go a day without listening to some form of music. The only thing that means as much to me is dj'ing it.

Everyone loses their shit on "Suspense" and though it is a fucking incredible track, for me "Real Life" is the jam!!!!! I always liked it since I first bought the ep when it came out, but when I heard Jeff cue it up to start his set at the "Sikness & ... See full review

Of all Richie's dj mixes, this one is the most accurate reflection of Rich in full dancefloor mode. Most of his mixes are more of a reflection of something more suitable for something away from the dancefloor (yet equally funky) but for the number of ... See full review

One of the last truly great acid house records. This record displays how acid is the true link between house and techno. As a dj, this is the perfect record to take your sets from light to dark sounds.
posted a review of DJ Hell* - X-Mix-5 - Wildstyle. over 13 years ago
Of all the releases in the X Mix series, this is probably the best one, save Kevin Saunderson's. Using some of his fave acid/deep house moments as well as a couple of under-appreciated techno tracks, Hell creates a deep emotional mixing experience that ... See full review
posted a review of DBX - Losing Control. over 13 years ago
Aside from perhaps Rob Hood's "The Pace", "Losing Control" would have to be considered as one of the most versatile, hypnotic slabs of music to ever be pressed to vinyl. Maybe even more so. I'm not quite sure if 'Pace' would fit as well with some of the ... See full review

For some reason, this album gets a bit of a bad review in comparison to The Smiths other releases, but I feel that bad review is a bit unjustified. The lyrical content is somewhat the same as any other Smiths albums but the music is just as strong. From ... See full review

This is the perfect release for anybody who is starting their collection of The Clash. Though there was perhaps a couple surprising ommissions ("Charlie Don't Surf" being one of them.) from this release, it still gives a good insight of the music from ... See full review

The Hardfloor remix is one of those perfect fusions between techno and house. Whenever I want to play this, I could fit this anywhere into a house set or at the beginning of a techno set that would lean to the uplifting realm. This remix set off a whole ... See full review

In my opinon. This has to be one of Iron Maiden's most underrated albums, but I feel it's one of their strongest albums as well. Again, history is used as their songwriting muse and their knack for catchy and effective guitar compostions holds the course ... See full review

The true mark of a brilliant song is when you can get a broad range of people with different tastes in music to all agree on the superior quality of the song. Such is the case of Knights Of The Jaguar. When you've got commercially famous dj's like Pete ... See full review

Normally I'm not much for the minimal/glitch/IDM sound but I bought this release strictly for the Ricardo Villalobos mix because I love it's clever use of compressed/staccato percussive quirkiness but I was completely hooked when I heard the strings near ... See full review

Some cool tracks and a proper live mix. You can spot some very minor "train tracking" but nothing that takes away from the quality of this compilation as a whole. A good solid flow.

Disregard everything else on this ep and head straight for the Mood II Swing Club Dub. A great example of low-slung funky house that's versatile enough to go into a late-night techno set. The same day I bought this ep, I heard Acquaviva play this on the ... See full review

Derrick May once said that a track doesn't need to have drums or a beat to be beautiful and "Theme From It's All Gone Pear Shaped" is a shining example of that philosophy. For me, this track can feature as a great intro but works better as a bridge track ... See full review

Sometimes a record comes along that as a dj you want to just let it play right through and let everyone listen to the track for every beautiful second it plays. This new release by Kevin Saunderson's most successful project is a shining example of that. ... See full review

It could be argued that if Eminem owed his style to any one particular release, this would have to played a large role in influencing the style of some of Em's songs. When I first listened to "Mind Of A Lunatic" a chill went down my spine to think how ... See full review

Of all his mixes on Trust The Dj, this would have to be my personal fave of the three. It doesn't go overboard with extra effects (ie; filter, etc), it has a great build to it and has a good variety of styles. From tough tribal beats like Paul Mac, and ... See full review

Who better than one of the minimal masters to prove that not all that is minimal in techno is boring. Hood utilizes a good number of his own records on this but it's none of the obvious ones. So instead of hearing Hood tracks that everybody has played ... See full review

Carl has released a lot of cd's over the past decade, but nothing can compare to this blinder. As a result, I've never been able to buy any of his other cd's because it all falls by the wayside when I hold it up to the standard that was set with F.A.C.T ... See full review

This came out before a similar sounding hit that reached huge commercial success for Emmanuel, that being "Seven Days And One Week" under his BBE guise. But in my opinion, "Fusion" far exceeds the aforementioned song about a fortnight. There is more of a ... See full review

This is one of those compilations where the tracklisting tends to outweigh the skill of the mixes. Though it doesn't seem to be chock full of mistakes, there is an overuse (in my opinion) of a filter effect, and a lot of the tracks sound too much alike. ... See full review

What a great emotional record. A bit of an odd title for such a blinder but who am I to judge?! "The Horse" is good but not great, but "The Cow"!!! Some classic house, or dare I say tech-house?, business happening here!

When this first came out, it was first described as "Dave Clarke on Codine". It's an interesting analogy to the similar drum sounds used on "Codes" and Dave Clarke's "Storm" from the Red 3 ep. But that's where the comparison ends. In my opinion, this ... See full review

Undoubtably one of the greatest acid records not made by Hardfloor. For the most part it's pretty high octane, high bpm acid techno but it has a unique melody that has a tendency to absolutely bring a dancefloor to it's knees. It's done it for me a few ... See full review

This record in a very weird way sounds like Plastikman's "Krakpot" given the DE9 Re-edit treatment. It is very deep and driving with just the right amount of kick and sounds like a robotic swarm of bees. Pretty cool track!
