Don't contact me asking for rips, any PM asking for such will be deleted and ignored. Go and hunt for the Vinyl or CD like many of us here do.

I'm an electronic music lover from Puerto Rico. I have been listening religiously 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
IanC
Acorn-Records
djdeep4172
tonyvdb1
dnakanis
synthetixsounds (Doesn't sell anymore, but might in the future.)

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

Note to sellers: Grade accurately, please. Have had a number of poor experiences here due to sellers poorly grading what they sell. If there is a problem with my order, I will always contact you. Any lame excuses or accusations thrown at me when I politely complain will earn you a negative feedback. Better grade correctly what you sell and not be a dishonest idiot. Won't be tolerating any bad grading done deliberately. It's completely unfair to the buyer and I'm sick of it.

Exactly, Kai hints that acid trance was invented by him, hence his stage name which is a complete lie.

The only track worth talking about is track 11 "Ambient Outro". A nice, haunting ambient track track with a good organ melody. It's a neat diamond in the rough.

Best Trance? No way, not even remotely close. This release highlights how bad the genre got during the early 00's. Cheesy vocals + crappy synth sounds. Just a turd in the rough.

1- First Now volume to be released on CD. (When the CD format was in it's infancy.)

500 is a very small print run. There are currently 5 copies for sale. I reckon a few thousand were printed. CD would be way harder to find if the print run was a measly 500. (And even more expensive than the CD already is.)

Tiefseetaucher is a very nice underrated acid Trancer. Roaring 303 bassline and a solid arpeggio. The other two tracks are not good enough to be worth mentioning.

Brilliant Techno EBM! Classic techno-trance arpeggio, fantastic German vocals and a nice haunting pizzicato sample to top it off. Second best Techno Drome International release IMO. The only track that is a tad better for me is Tribantura - Lack Of Sense.
