𝑫𝑢𝑡𝑻 𝑨𝑺𝑲 𝑭𝑢𝑹 𝑹𝑰𝑷𝑺, 𝑩𝑼𝒀 𝑻𝑯𝑬 𝑹𝑬𝑳𝑬𝑨𝑺𝑬!

I'm an electronic music lover from Puerto
Rico. I have been listening to electronic music since late 2007 when I was one day flickering through the TV channels and stumbled across some channels that were music stations. These group of channels were part of a program called Choice Music and would play uninterrupted music 24/7 of various genres. I spent a good amount of hours listening to music broadcasted in the Electronica and Dance channels which would play commercial house, drum n bass, trance to name a few genres. I discovered some well known underground music artists like Omni Trio, Cassius, Terry Todd to name a few and some pretty popular artists like Tiesto, Paul Van Dyk and Armin Van Buuren.

During the thanksgiving of 2008, one of my cousins had a CD compilation called "Techno Vol. 2" (Released on ZYX Music) laying around his home room. I asked if I could rip the CD and listen to it. My cousin said yes and I was instantly introduced to obscure electronic music I had never heard before. I then decided to google the artist names and was introduced to Discogs where I learned that there was a crap ton of obscure music almost no one knew about. Ever since then, my taste in music changed to listen mostly to obscure electronic music.

From 2009-10, I listened mostly to Trance from the late 90's to early 00s. In 2011, I decided to stick mostly to oldskool Trance produced during 1990-1996 and haven't change my listening habits much since then. Started collecting the same year because I realized I wasn't going to be happy with a bunch of illegal rips I had downloaded from various websites and wanted the real deal.

I'm always eager to dig through the most obscure stuff no one knows about. Always rewarding to find a hidden gem! :) I'll keep listening to electronic music until I die, that's for sure.

Great deals with the following sellers:
euronorway
la-voie-du-sabre

Acorn-Records

Does cheese exist given that everyone has an opinion?

I've bashed a ton of stuff over the years but came to the conclusion that it's pointless really.

Dance House Trance is honestly the dumbest band name I have ever heard.

Very quiet and brick walled mastering.

Don't buy this expecting stellar sound quality, it's passible at best.

Iskender is horribly mastered: No dynamics to speak of + very low record volume, probably one of the worse masters I have listened to.

The other tracks aren't mastered well either though are passible for most of the part.

A bit of a shame given that... See full review

Very nice obscure downtempo with a south American vibe hence the title.

Wonder why this took years to be discovered by people which caused the price to spike? I remember seeing copies for cents years ago.

Probably sourced from MP3 judging by the spectrogram.

These tracks sound like garbage, no better than a 128 Kbps MP3 file. I initially thought both CDs were poorly mastered as pretty much every instrument sounds lifeless due to abysmal dynamic range... See full review
