Please don't bother asking for rips, rip requests will be IGNORED and solicitants might be BLOCKED from further contact

I'm also NOT interested in selling anything, any offers will be ignored.

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:
synthetixsounds (Doesn't sell anymore, but might in the future.)

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

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

Totally agree! Prison De Le Space is very cold and aggressive sounding Hard Trance, very different from happy, uplifting cheese that was common during the time.

Funny thing is that this was super cheap for years before someone hype it.

Fantastic cheapo if enjoy progressive house / tech house. Great sound quality to boot, sounds like the master tapes were used here, extremely crisp sound!

Most of these tracks weren't released on CD otherwise, which makes this comp even nicer to own!
