Big Pop-Dance fan. Having a bit of a clearout now, because I have just way too many CD's, and not enough space. So please drop me a line if there's anything you're after (including mp3/wav). I'm a BIG Michael Jackson collector and own just about every single official and Remix Service mix done of him.

I'm also pretty clued up on various artists and Remixers, so I'm always happy to answer questions (especially on rare mixes, etc).

Ex-Discogs mod. It was great here once upon a time, but like most things management find a way of royally screwing up what was once a great site.

As is so often the case with Masters At Work, they used the Dub as the basis for one of their own Productions. The drum kit here eventually becoming the base of the seminal "To Be In Love".
posted a review of Incognito - Everyday. over 4 years ago
This release contains a mispress. The mix entitled 'Everyday (Masters At Work Everydub)' is actually the 'Everyday (Masters At Work Mel's Dub)' from the rarer 12" Promo [TLKDJ 090]. A bit of a bonus for collectors as the 'Everydub' is widely available on ... See full review

Lovely track by Todd Terry, somewhat overlooked post the "Keep On Jumpin" and "Something's Goin' On" phase. In a similar vein, the Rhythm Masters Remix hardly gets a mention (largely in part to their seminal work on "Keep On Jumpin"), but deserves a few ... See full review

I’ve always found it hard to understand the obsession with this track. Strangely obtaining a cult-like obsession in the UK, particularly with Garage DJ’s.

Perhaps one of the most un-Louie Vega tracks I can think of, that he put his name to. Made more ... See full review

One of the first instances of a Remix of a pop artist, by Masters At Work. Transforming a typically lackluster frothy pop track from Mick Hucknall into a club banger. Kenny’s drum programming is something to behold, having multiple kicks hitting at ... See full review

Seminal Remixes by Armand Van Helden.

The Mission To Mars Mix carried his more standard Speed Garage sound, with an absolutely menacing bassline. What's more notable about this mix is that it proved to be the template for which all Speed Garage ... See full review

The R.I.P. Wah-Wah Dub really encapsulates the Speed Garage era. Like so much of this sound, incredibly soulless and with little respect paid to the original song. Furthermore, it contains the almost obligatory Armand Van Helden samples which are ... See full review

Along with 187 Lockdown's "Gun Man", one of the seminal Speed Garage anthems. Tim Deluxe and Omar Adimora took drums from Kenny "Dope" Gonzales (listen to The Underground Mix of "I Get Lifted"), a synth sample from Armand Van Helden's CJ Bolland Remix, ... See full review

Truly brilliant remixes from Andy Wedeen and Frank Lamboy. In keeping with so much of their work; they take B2K's vocals and wrap them around a classy, restrained but full-on circuit-house production. One of the few combinations I can remember of an ... See full review

The Original Mix Produced by Hani pitched Andrea Martin's vocals over the beautiful Instrumental of his legendary Remix for Alicia Keys "Diary". However, Alicia's label denied permission to release it. So Hani went back and reworked it, with the released ... See full review

Unfortunately, as much as I'd like to believe otherwise, I'm resigned to the fact that the best of Mariah has been seen.

"It's Like That" is a banging Club track, helped no doubt by the brilliance of Sir Morales. "We Belong Together" should go down as ... See full review

Armand gives Britney a rough, tough, sexy and gritty makeover complete with rock guitars. Not something really tailored for Pop floors, but still a great Remix.

A truly stunning piece of work by Hani. He captures Alicia's glorious vocals and weaves them into an amazing Disco-House experience, taking inspired Sax samples from Santa Esmerelda "Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood". The Dub works great as a teaser into ... See full review

An amazing Remix by Todd The God, with a truly glorious piano intro. Tuff Jam give the classic vox a rougher, UK Garage treatment. The Dub has a maddening, descending bassline.
