The $449.99 sale from Sept 2019 was from a scammer for example. A fake seller from who I bought and never received the record (which I believe never existed anyway). I got my money back, seller was banned from Discogs, but the sale stat is still here. So ... See full review

Bad photoshop work on the 'painting' artwork, which has probably been scanned from the original sleeve (because the original file is of course missing after 26 years). Some elements have been erased / modified to remove the text layer and put the new ... See full review

Look for the colour of the labels, they should have a tinge of green / blue. Typical of white labels mastered by JTS at that time. Some original copies don't have any writings on the labels too.
posted a comment on Nuron, As One - La Source. 2 months ago
Not as good as his first releases on Likemind which remain totally mind-blowing and of the highest level compared to these new tracks. Nice racing circuit diagram-themed artwork in reference to one of Nuron's passions.

The vocal used on Meditation was later used in his track 'Mind Games' released in 1996 in a LTJ Bukem comp. Beautiful track BTW that was never released anywhere else than on these 2 Bukem comp https://www.dailymotion.com/video/x6c49x

So my comment about whether the source material is coming from vinyl or tapes (or even CD because these tracks were released on a comp called Digital Lifeforms in 1993) was deleted. Please let me know ! Thanks

From A-Ton Bandcamp : All tracks mastered from the original 1/4 inch (quarter inch cartridge tape) and DAT tapes except “To Be Surreal”. A true example of transparency from a label that all should follow, when it comes to repress early tunes. Top job, ... See full review

Still frequently listening to this until that day. Wicked release. The ambient acid mix is out of this world and one of the best recent house track.

Prince Vee was a friend of Marcus Mixx and LIAM. The record was produced by LIAM (and possibly with help from Marcus) in the same studio and with the same gear as the other Head Studios records by MM.

A repress will never be the same as the original. Like Wilson Bentley said "No two snowflakes are alike", that applies to records.

A great record. Mark Clair & Dennis McFarlane (4 hero), well known mainly for their jungle, drum'n'bass and techno productions, are delivering here 6 sophisticated house bomb tracks. Yet unknown, don't wait too long to grab a copy.

Truly fantastic return from Mark Clair under the Nu Era guise. 'Heartstrings', my personal highlight on this EP, reminds me of some early 4hero productions.
