Mostly into deep house, house, and all the weird leftfield.

I wouldn't call the sound quality horrible, but when I compare it to recent repress of Forevernevermore, the difference between them is more than obvious. The cover art is also so-so, very dark with basically no details, fonts being blurred ... it's a ... See full review

I guess we can get pretty sure that whatever comes from Ion Ludwig’s studio is a masterpiece over and out and Rolling Drama proves it very well. I haven’t heard better album this year.

I really really hope this is going to get a physical treatment, I love this so much. Does anybody - by any chance - knows about vinyl coming?

Confirming the smudges, on both of the records actually. Pink one is more affected. Other than that - it sounds stellar.

What's the first name that come across mind when Perlon is mentioned? To many, it's Ricardo Villalobos. To me, it's Fumiya Tanaka. His latest two contributions A/B and C/D are only confirming his strong position in Perlon roster that has been cemented by ... See full review

This is perfect in every way. I guess I'll never get tired of this.

This one is not amongst Fabric favorites, as the ridiculously low rating suggests, but I can't help myself but love this one. It's almost like listening your favorite show on your favorite radio station. You know that what you'll get will satisfy you, ... See full review
posted a review of Adam Beyer - Fabric 22. 7 months ago
This one kinda reminds me of Berghain 01 mix by André Galluzzi. Definitely same style, which tells a lot about clubbing in time those mixes were recorded. Beyer's mix is definitely harder / faster / however you like while staying strict and minimalistic. ... See full review

As I keep digging through early editions of fabric mixes, I'm always more than happy to get distracted from the direct take on house and techno most of them represent. Akufen's take on the serie is exactly that. I'm not really sure if there's something ... See full review

As somebody already wrote under, this would be more fitting under Fabriclive name, but in the end ... there's been quite few unexpected names doing one or another, and Fabric 12 started it all. First one to get out of the pretty much clearly defined ... See full review

Absolutely essential Fabric mix that every dance music fan should hear. Every single track on this has its purpose and creates very complex atmosphere. Loving this one, and forever will.
posted a review of Slam - Fabric 09. 8 months ago
Two words to describe this mix would be probably euphoric & fun. It's funny to compare this with recent mixes of similar speed and pace: how faster dance music became so dark, doomy and serious. This mix is not, and that's fine even in 2018.
posted a review of Tyler Stadius - Fabric 06. 9 months ago
Heavy afterhours vibe on this one. Beautifully laidback selection of tracks from deeper specter. Making Tribalations' "Look Behind Your Eyes" and "Letting Go" by Grant Dell and Bob de la Rosa to run for about 10 minutes speaks about the nature of this ... See full review
posted a review of Pure Science - Fabric 05. 9 months ago
I've had hard time with this. It's very punchy, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. What's worse is the stereotype this mix/album/whatever falls into pretty quickly. After this smash of beats ended, I couldn't remember much. Not that it was ... See full review

This is actually pretty amazing from start to finish, wondering why there is no review so far. If there's some list of "Fabric mixes you definitely need to hear", I hope this one's in it. Euphoric tunes in sync with more tribal ones, slow buildup, ... See full review
posted a review of Terry Francis - Fabric 02. 9 months ago
Like I wrote at Fabric 01 ... theres some sense of incompleteness when listening to this without Fabric 01 prior. Terry Francis' approach is different and I guess we can call this mix much more emotional and maybe fun than the first one was. That ... See full review
posted a review of Craig Richards - Fabric 01. 9 months ago
Listening to this mix without immediate play of Fabric 02 afterwards feels like an incomplete experience. This mix surely is good and flows incredibly well, it has this build up feel however and when it reaches the full speed and tension, it all just ... See full review

I've said this many times to a lot of people - this might be the best album I have ever heard. No more words needed. Experience from start to finish.

What else to expect from the master than defining quality? I was digging Unknown Origin, but he pushed his softer moniker to next level with this release. The hypnotic atmosphere of the tribal drums is fascinating through the entire playtime and it's ... See full review
posted a review of Gusgus - Lies Are More Flexible. about 1 year ago
No Manual, Lies Are More Flexible, Towards A Storm and the massive closer Fuel is what makes this album listenable. It's interesting in fact, as these tracks are instrumental, with no vocal works which was very distinctive for GusGus through their entire ... See full review

This is as superb as anything you can get from Moomin. Sceptical to his "back to the roots jungle and dnb" approach at first, I have to say it all just makes sense in very beautiful way. Shame the playtime is so short. I would love to listen to his music ... See full review

Return in form - even though a bit leftfield-ish than "Care", it gets the work done. C2 and D especially are exactly the tunes that can make me happy nowadays, both on the dancefloor and on my sofa. Hot summer evenings are coming and this is the perfect ... See full review

If somebody ever asks me what is the definition of "underrated" record, I'll point to Exciter. Fans are loving it or hating it, there's no ambivalent "in between" when it comes to this album, and I have to say I love it to bits. Cooperation with Mark ... See full review

Not afraid calling this album underrated. She really knows how to create lush and intimate vibe - this is exactly how I prefer house. Strongly recommend this, one of the best releases on Skylax imho.

Out of all Smallville Records long-players, I consider this one to be the best. What's shocking me - original press is still in stock. Grab it, because you need to own this.
posted a review of Smallpeople - Salty Days. about 1 year ago
This record had me when I played it for the very first time until now - there's not much electronic music albums you can call timeless, well, this one definitely is. Actually, this is the album that pushed me into deep house, so I owe these guys a huge ... See full review

Is anyone able to confirm that official repress is coming in two weeks? Release date has been set for last spring already and nothing, so I’m kinda sceptical. Also - THAT price? All shops have it listed for 55 $ + on pre-order, and that, ladies and ... See full review
posted a comment on Björk - Debut. about 1 year ago
It's definitely very silent, so be sure to turn up the volume. The overall sound quality isn't exceptional, true, but don't expect any tragedy. All in all, average pressing of fantastic album. I don't really mind.
posted a review of Moodymann - Forevernevermore. about 1 year ago
Mine arrived Friday and I was pleasantly surprised both with the packaging and the pressing quality. As mentioned, Peacefrog represses are absolutely shitty lately so I was really worried. Well - you shouldn't worry at all.

To be honest, 02 clicked immediately with me. Maybe the mixing is too fast as the list counts 21 tracks, but thats the only minus point, really. It got the special atmosphere of the opening set and that's interesting by itself, as anyone mixing Panorama ... See full review

Clearly the best the Berghain mix series offered, nobody even came close after this one. If there's a mix every techno fan should hear, it must be this one I guess.

To me, this is one of the most exciting mix CD's I have ever heard. I wouldn't consider myself as a "dubstep guy", but when listening to this I can say I would be regular at Sub:stance nights in Berghain/P-Bar for sure, if they were still a thing ... See full review

As opposite to Dettmanns eclectic selections while behind the turntables, II presents his production as subtle, straight-forward doomy techno. Short cuts as A1, B1 and D2 doesn't really makes sense to me, or why they made it to vinyl release, neverthless ... See full review
