Underground electronic music lover. My main interest is old Trance (1990-1996.) I occasionally listen to Trance made in 1997-2001. But often drop it in favor of the older stuff since it's harder for me to find good tracks developed in this time range.

I also listen to Techno (From oldskool rave to more intelligent styles.), House (American, European, Deep House, Tech House etc.) Some Downtempo, ambient and atmospheric Drum And Bass.

Please don't contact me asking for digital files. I may help you in the case that the release in question is stupidly expensive, though don't bet on it. Otherwise, don't bother. Buy the media if you want the music like I and many other people do.

Great deals with the following sellers:
synthetixsounds (Doesn't sell anymore, but might in the future.)

And others I forgot to mention or will meet in the future.

Bad experiences with the following users:
cocktailmix: Bought 2 CDs graded as NM/NM. Received badly scratched CDs and worn inserts. Told the seller about it. Lied to me that the CDs were fine before sending. Accuse me of scamming when filling a PayPal dispute. Got a refund via PayPal Dispute.

zazaza030: Bought 3 CDs all graded as NM. Only received 2 in one packet. One in VG condition and the other one in Good condition with a million scratches. Got refund via Paypal dispute.

sgeorge: Sold NM CD. Received scratched CD Good+ at best. Seller lied to me that the CD was fine before sending. Accused me of trying to escort money when I threatened with a Paypal dispute. PayPal unfortunately sided with seller and forced me to send back item for refund. Sent back the crap sold to me as NM. Complete waste of time.

Other sellers that have sold me overgraded CDs and do not recommend. Though I let these slide:


Please grade properly sellers, don't waste my time and my precious money. I'm a very honest buyer looking for honest sellers. If honesty with your gradings isn't your thing, feel free to block me from purchasing from you. It will save us both time. I'm allergic to dishonest sellers :( I can get quite angry when I receive junk graded as NM or such. It has happened to me numerous times and sellers give me the same lame excuses. I will try to communicate first if I disagree with the grading. If there is no valid agreement, I will probably fill in a PayPal dispute, so please, grade properly. It's not too hard to do. You all have be warned when selling to me. I don't have the time for dealing with dishonest sellers. My patience can run quite dry when handling with this sort of problem. I can tell when it's a simple mistake and when a seller intentionally overgraded or was guilty of ignorance for not grading the item properly.

I will accept slight miss gradings IE: NM is VG+ or VG+ is VG and so on. However, NM or VG+ as Good or worse is a no no. I understand that grading won't always be perfect. There will always be disputes among people. But please, don't tell be a CD with a million scratches can be labeled as NM or VG+ That is complete and utter BS.

Have to wholeheartedly agree. The intro is fucking fantastic, some excellent pads and chorus give this track it's proper identity. Really solid as an opener to a Hard trance set. That being said, the rest of the track is also quite good as well.

Very underrated Dark Techno New Beat. Solid early 90's techno bassline and classic techno house drum pattern. The only thing that is bit lackluster is the Komm Mit Mir vocal sample which I found a bit repetitive. Still a good underrated track.

You could skill consider Kai as an early pioneer of Acid Trance, since his early works date back to 1995 which was a big year for the sub genre. Though, I will admit that crediting Kai as the inventor of Acid Trance is silly.
