Born in 1971, starting to like dance music in 1988 (that more obvious commercial acid-house stuff that made it into the charts), got in touch with Detroit&Chicago in 1990, loving UK-Hardcore from 1991/1992, then getting into Progressive-House/Trance in 1992-1994, funky hard techno from Sweden in the late 90's, then into Progressive Trance for a few years with music from labels like BozBoz, Baroque, Aurium, Hope and into soulful techno from Kanzleramt, still loving stuff from Sweden (Adam Beyer, Joel Mull, Cari Lekebusch, Alexi Delano), very glad about the return of R&S, always waiting for the annual release from The Martian on Red Planet and still feeling a lot of sympathy to the good old WARP-Label although some of their stuff nowadays is a bit strange. Can't stand minimal tech-house because it has become so boring.

At the moment I rediscovered Detroit Techno with my favourite labels beeing Delsin, Planet E, Innervisions, Figure, Echospace, R&S, Music Man and lots others.

Such a shame this only made it to No.20 for one week in the UK-Dance-Charts in early 1993... Essential ProgHouseTrance whatever

Wow... Makes me feel like it is 1992 again. B1 samples the wonderful Caron Wheeler with Living in the light, adds a lovely piano and fantastic drum&bass programming. The whole EP takes you back to the golden times, thank you!

A funny Story about this record is told in the book "Der Klang der Familie" by Felix Denk & Sven von Thülen. In the early 90's there were quite some different rivals in Berlin: The Low Spirit Posse, The Tresor Posse, The Tekknozid Posse and so on. MFS ... See full review

Love the B1 Track with that male vocal complaining about all kind of things which is around 6 minutes Long. Not sure if it is called Isms or if they got the wrong names on the cover and it is called 1976. What a weird track, reminds me of an old tune ... See full review

well, I would say mostly yes. Disc 4 seems to have all the unreleased mixes; Tracks 4-06, 4-08 & 4-09 are really good. The mix on disc 5 is superb imho. Nice to have Eclipse (on disc 2) on cd, can't understand why all mixes of Dark & Long are included ... See full review

Limbo Records had a remarkable success in February/March 1993 with 2 Releases both entering the UK-Dance-Charts at No. 1. First Mukkaa's Buruchacca hit the top spot and the following week Havana's Ethnic prayer did the same.

This record deserves a comment for the release itself and for R&S. A lot of people were quite irritated with the musical direction that R&S took from the mid90's. Unfortunately - like someone said "it all faded away in obscurity" in the beginning of this ... See full review

I have to disagree with Wolfgang. The gem on this release is the 2nd track on the B-Side. A nice groover of a tune which you normally don't find on a Primate Release. A chilled groovy Tech-House-Track that you can play in all sorts of sets no matter if ... See full review

6 out of 5 if this would be possible. I was well surprised when this came out: My first contact to FSOL was of course Papua-New-Guinea in 1992 (I just found out later that Stakker humanoid was also from them) and I loved their stuff in 1992/1993 beeing ... See full review

A simple but effective record. "Into your space" is the best of the mixes in my book. Quite minimal, playing with the filters and it's really grooving. What I like is the real clear and crisp production style. You could call that an early tech-house ... See full review

All 4 tracks are quality funky driving Techno. A1 really reminds me of Dave Clarke's "Wisdom to the Wise" from the famous Red.2 EP. Not that energetic but very well produced. I wonder if this EP is a contribution to some of Ray Kajioka's favourite ... See full review

2 excellent banging techno tracks that seem to be well underestimated but have stood the test of time. "Vector" has such a dirty bassline and some fierce noises going on that it really rocks. The b-side-track is also really pounding. So if you have to ... See full review

First time I heard a bit of the "Full on Renaissance Mix" in 1993 once on the radio and liked it but somehow that was it. Then it came back to my memory with the Trainspotting-Movie in 1996(?). Some of my friends bought the Trainspotting-Compilation and ... See full review

A strange 4 track EP because the first three tracks are rather standard belgian-hardcore from 1991 but b2 "body tranze" is a brilliant progressive-trance-tune which in my opinion was way ahead of its time. A bit slow but really intense. I heard that tune ... See full review

The B-Side is an absolut winner. I had heard that track once on the radio before and then in August 2000 I was in a small club on the island Fuerteventura. A local DJ played some deep house which wasn't that bad but not too exciting. Then he dropped this ... See full review

Normally you get a lot of crap if you buy a "best of techno blablabla-Compilation". But the 2 flux-trax-releases really stand out of that. I bought the CD because at that time I didn't have a copy of Leftfield's wonderful classic "Song of life" which is ... See full review
