Profile

I used to have a strong passion for Techno & Trance, mainly Belgium retro trance from the 90's.

I have started to sell my private collection here on Discogs because the lockdown fucked me up... so for me the deejaying and collecting is nearly over, I just keep the essentials.

Now into Space/Cosmic Disco

Former Hardcore, Hardtrance & Hardstyle freak.

Most important being that it takes me on a journey to a new universe !

My ratings are usually 4 or 5 stars, I only rate what I like/love (because the rest wouldn't be my style, and it's very rare that I find that a production is not correctly crafted)

I don't know of any better relationship between a guitar and a synth than in the second part of Mechanical Box. Any suggestions of such great work ?

Hypnose is my favourite Emmanuel Top's track (and he has made many huge ones !), something that goes beyond the "what a trip" description, back to primitive roots, to the meaning of trance state. 15 minutes to let your mind wander far from our... See full review

Mansewood Toi is clearly the kind of crazy trippy stuff I would like to hear on a big soundsystem. I bet this would be a huge banger if events were allowed ! Btw, someone knows the origin of the choir sample used ?
