My collection consists of:
ambient, new wave, psytrance, techno, breakbeat, drum 'n' bass, trance, progressive, industrial, synth pop, idm, lounge, goatrance and more. So, it's hard to say what I like, but I listen to anything at least once.

Feel free to browse my collection and to contact me for trade and/or info.

Scary Monsters marks the end of the 70's aera Bowie. In many ways this is him reflecting on his past and is perhaps one of his most personal albums lyrically.

The (only electronic) track 'Ashes to Ashes' is a cynical ode to the song that started his ... See full review

Believe it or not: John Carpenter is not only one of the better horror film directors, but also is a pioneer in electronic dance music. It sounds like something between Kraftwerk and Moroder, but is also more repetitive and less cheesy. It's a shame ... See full review

A beautiful chillout album. They make ambient that builds into hypnotizing mellow trance, but keeps the tempo really low (below 120 bpm) and thicken the sound with sounds and clever melodies, making it the perfect soundtrack when ambient is just too ... See full review
posted a review of Galaxy - Angel. over 15 years ago
Boris Blenn is mostly known for his Goa- and later Psytrance project 'Electric Universe'. Galaxy is him in a more downtempo incarnation. Chill-out music with occasionally more uptempo moments, but never too fast and pumping.
posted a review of The Klinik* - Fear. over 15 years ago
The problem with The Klinik is that Dirk Ivens (a.k.a. 'Dive') is such a poser. Just like Front Line Assembly's Bill Leeb he uses this dark voice but only talks simplistic bullshit. If you want to sound serious, have something to say... otherwise The ... See full review
posted a review of A Split - Second - Flesh. over 15 years ago
As stated above, the song 'Flesh' had a big influence on the Belgian dance scene, but only when it was discovered by a DJ that it plays better at 33rpm + 2% (or so) instead of the original 45 rpm. This started the shortlived "not faster than 120 bpm, ... See full review
posted a review of Alien Sex Fiend - All Our Yesterdays. over 15 years ago
A nice little collection of their early singles. This was a fun band that was a kind of an 'Alice Cooper-meets-Punk-meets-Dancebeats-kind-of-thing' with a very tongue in cheek glam rock/gothic stageact. Since the fill material that usually made their ... See full review
posted a review of Dark Soho - Combustion. over 15 years ago
Ever wondered how Psytrance sounds when it is fused with Industrial and Gothic? This is the best example. This album is strongly melodic, psychedelic and powerful (a.k.a. israeli trance) but you can also hear well placed elements from Heavy Metal, Gothic ... See full review
posted a review of System 7 - Seventh Wave. over 15 years ago
I don't agree with all of the above. This sounds much fresher and better produced than their previous work. 'High Plains Drifter' is indeed a techno track, but a very powerful one with strong bassline and beat. Also available in the 'Voyager remix' which ... See full review
posted a review of Clan Of Xymox - Medusa. over 15 years ago
A little less dance beats on this one than it's predecessor. Although I think this album is their best work and makes for a sweet, sad but warm listening experience. Gothic Pop without staring too much into the abyss and dwelling in self-pity.
posted a review of Clan Of Xymox - Clan Of Xymox. over 15 years ago
This dutch band sounded very fresh in the eightees as they used string and choir samples for their gothic pop over a synth pop background. Lots of chorus effects in the voices (three singers, one female), not too much expression in them as well (maybe ... See full review
posted a review of Front 242 - [: RE:BOOT: (L. IV. E '98] ). over 15 years ago
In 1998 Roland Music Equipment sponsored a small world tour for Front 242. This release captures one of those gigs.

All songs have been rearranged (with Roland Equipment of course) and sound a little more dance oriented than their original versions. ... See full review
posted a review of Front 242 - 05:22:09:12 Off. over 15 years ago
Released a couple of months after '05:22:09:12 Off', this album is perhaps their most commercial effort, even replacing Jean Luc's deep vocals with a female singer on most songs. I guess we could call this "Industrial Pop"...
posted a review of Front 242 - 06:21:03:11 Up Evil. over 15 years ago
For the first time in their career, Front decided to involve someone else in the production process. Oddly they choose Andy Wallace (famous for his work with Nirvana) to do the job. The result is Front's heaviest album to date, exchanging the slick ... See full review
posted a review of Placebo Effect - Galleries Of Pain. over 15 years ago
Although an obvious Skinny Puppy clone, musically this album is actually pretty good and diverse. Unfortunately the singer's english is pretty bad while he is trying really hard to sound like Ogre. This is funny at times, but mostly annoying.
posted a review of The Klinik* - Pain And Pleasure. over 15 years ago
'Go back' is, when compared to the rest of The Klink's work, a nice little pop song ("let me hear your body talk, body, your bodytalk.."). 'Pain and pleasure' is a live track.
posted a review of Will - Pearl Of Great Price. over 15 years ago
The music is excellent on this release, as mainly orchestral samples have been used, which creates a powerful wagnerian sound. Unfortunately the vocals are rather agressive screams, which spoil the album's atmosphere.
posted a review of Karen Finley - Tales Of Taboo. over 15 years ago
'Tales Of Taboo' is musically a cover version of Anne Clark's 'Sleeper in Metropolis', but lyrically the song is pretty much about perverted sex, penis envy, belgian waffels and having intercourse with your mother... If you are a man and want to be ... See full review

Anne Clark was quite big in the early eightees among fans of electronic music. This was not because of her self-centered poetry and refusal to sing or even use any kind of human expression in her voice, but because of David Harrow's brilliant synth-pop. ... See full review

A Front 242 rip-off. A very good one, but still it makes for a very predictable listening experience that echoes all the clichès of the EBM godfathers and lacks the irony and noise collages. 'The Bog' includes Front's Jean Luc De Meyer on vocals, which ... See full review

Die Krupps make it no secret that Metallica are their gods. Their more 'recent' releases (everything after Past Forward - 1991) is a more or less direct tribute to Metallica's work. Unfortunately Die Krupps add very little of their own, which is strange ... See full review

Wheither the songs match their drug or if the whole idea is a bit silly is open for discussion, but this album is really one of the best psytrance albums ever. Note: the movie "Fear and loathing in Las Vegas" is used as a primary source of soundbites ... See full review
posted a review of Click Click - Rorschach Testing. over 15 years ago
The singer has great voice and writes clever lyrics (eg: "I want to make love to the mona lisa, because I know that's what she's smiling for" - 15 minutes). The album's (or the band's) only weakness is that they use the same synth sound on every song.

à;Grumh... were a remarkable band in the late 80's belgian ebm scene as they were completely over the top with their hardcore gay image (and often lyrics) and so were a welcome addicition to the otherwise rather "serious sounding" genre. Sadly, later ... See full review

Tim Schuldt normally produces hard agressive psytrance. This album is him going back to his coldwave/industrial roots (Skinny Puppy, Nine Inch Nails, Ministry, etc.)

The last track is suprisingly loungy at first, but then, after two minutes of silence ... See full review
posted a review of The Normal - T.V.O.D. / Warm Leatherette. over 15 years ago
This must be the most irritating monotone song ever. However this was in the late '70's, so I guess it was a milestone then. The song was covered by many artists, most notable: Grace Jones.
posted a review of Noosphere - Aqua. over 15 years ago
50% downtempo and 50% psytrance. In my opinion, the downtempo tracks are OK and the psytrance tracks are really boring and predictable.
posted a review of Juno Reactor - Shango. over 15 years ago
Apart from the "western meets trance" track 'Pistolero' and the last two, which are ambient/chill out, this is Juno Reactor's darkest album to date.
posted a review of Pankow - Freiheit Für Die Sklaven. over 15 years ago
I agree that this album was a killer when it came out. Pankow's obsession with obscene & psychotic lyrics in combination with pumping beats and Sherwood's dub influences made it very special. The follow-up 'Gisela' is not as powerful.

This is Avihen Livne's last album as he died this year in a traffic accident in India. Respect to one of the greatest musicians in the psytrance genre.
posted a review of Boom Devil - Rumble. over 15 years ago
Although this is released by Flying Rhino, mostly known for minimal psytrance, this album is actually more lounge and trip hop. It only includes two upbeat tracks "rumble" and "pyroclastic".
posted a review of Fad Gadget - Under The Flag. over 15 years ago
I totally agree with the above. This is the only synth-pop album I can listen to from beginning to end. Fad Gadget has been a powerful influence on many other artists in the electronic genre and this record is his most accessible.
posted a review of Fluke - Oto. over 15 years ago
A great dark album, that is mainly downtempo. Fans of Massive Attack's 'Mezzanine' may want to check this one out as they clearly used this album as an inspiration.
posted a review of Fluke - Risotto. over 15 years ago
The only thing that bothers me about this release is that it sounds rather flat. Fluke has chosen to explore the lower frequencies and at times ignores the high- and midtones that make for a crystal clear listening experience.
