Very underrated group. The Demdike Stare of the mid 90's DNB scene.

This is a really lovely album and one to treasure. Ecstagony is probably my favourite track, it's 15 minutes of modern classical/ ambient bliss.
posted a review of The House Crew - Keep The Fire Burning / Get On Up. about 1 year ago
This may be a 'hardcore classic' but it also a popular track with the early 90's balearic crew; playing it at the wrong speed and turing it into a great bassy chugger!

Constantly brilliant. I've played 'Music For Objects' to death and this is another stunner. 'Radiance and Submission' is mind-blowing and a strong possible the album of 2015. His next LP looks to follow the same timeless path,'On Vacation' is released ... See full review

This is a great reissue which pulls together (for the first time) the mixes which have made this such an enduring piece of music. The Derrick May mix alone would cost you more than the price of this reissue. Add in the fact it contains the Winter Mix, ... See full review

A popular after-hours fave with the Hartford Massive after an evening out at Bugged Out! or Voodoo. Timeless, deep and understated. As the first reviewer so beautiffuly puts it... "you can feel the hidden euphoria of a new generation".

Bugged Out! classic from the early days 94/95 at Sankey's Soap. A record I'd not heard for years till Rob Bright mentioned it in a clip of the resident DJ's talking about music that shaped the early years at the club.

Bird Of Paradise ‎(Album Version) is a constant in my record bag. Always sounds great regardless of the system. Such a great track.

It's Hot is such a great track. It's got the perfect Ron Trent deep groove but is more laid back than Journeyn2u.
Based on a latin piano motif and a voice saying "it's hot, so hot" it's something you could easily play on a beach. No Youtube video clip ... See full review

A masterpiece and one which ranks very high in my top ten albums of all time. It feels more like a lifelong friend than it does an album. A stunning collection of work that gives you more with each listen.

This is in my top 5 albums of all time. I've only just got a copy on vinyl after years of playing it on CD and Wow!!, it's taken the listening experience and enjoyment to a whole new level. Fantastic and my favourite Iron & Wine album.

An amazing record that does not get the props (our carry the inflated price tag) of other more lauded tracks on this label. Essential. Eddie Ruscha on Bass, DJ Harvey on drums and members of Rub & Tug on keyboards.

'Transmit Liberation' is the only track worth mentioning on here. A 97 bpm trip-hop chugger. Sold to me by Moonboots when he worked at Eastern Bloc in Manchester. I remember looking out to sea at the Cafe Del Mar in the summer of 92, hearing this play ... See full review

Great early release from Azuli. Classy 'ruff disco' sounding tracks. Along with the early Nature Boy EP's (aka DJ Nature) feel. I loved these ep' s and in 92 it took my appreciation of disco music into a deeper and darker direction.

I've got this record and I was thinking about selling it. It's just a straight cover of Tangerine Dream – Love on a Real Train. Save yourself some cash and pick up the original.

Horse Steppin' is just such as amazing track. I don't know how you'd classify it. It's like a musical narcotic and apparently it's a tribute to Neil Young.

Great 12" this. Shades of Metro Area... shades of Balearic house.... but for me the track I've been playing out regularly, since 2008 is the deep electronica of Lazy Moon. Quality stuff by the boys from Russia.
