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

Product description from label says the artists originally recorded on tape…ok… that is how it was made back in the days, but it doesn't mention clearly if repress is sourced from vinyl rip or tapes. Please let me know.

One of my fav GU records. recently discovered that Awe Babe takes some samples from ‘Peech Boys - Don't Make Me Wait’.

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.

Well produced but as T-Ten already pointed out below, Karma is made re-creating elements from The End track from 'Truth' EP. Sad that the artist doesn't even credit it on his release, just out of respect for the original track...

I believe the name of the well-known group came from a phrase written on this very release back cover : “The massive attack on the right track”.

Calm down people always asking for represses. This sudden wish to repress everything is becoming crazy. This era will be fulfilled with more repress than new original material. Respect the original releases and leave them where they are. Repressing makes ... See full review

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.

I bought this at a high price without listening to it (no samples on the internet) thinking it’s a good record like the other productions from Naquil which are very good. Don’t do like me. It’s an average record that doesn’t worth much than $10. He ... See full review

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

The Journey : intro speech isn't taken from Twin Peaks ? It could be Laura Palmer's voice in one of the reversed voices scenes.

Each white label release has been individually signed by hand on one side with either 'Alicia', 'Alesha' or 'Mala'. Also a few copies are unsigned.

Labels graphic design from LM01 to LM04 are one of my favourites. Label design was made by none other than Nurmad Jusat (Nuron) himself.
posted a review of Crunchy Nut Cornflakes / C. M. Toni - Untitled. about 1 year ago
A truly amazing 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.
posted a review of Nu Era - Geometricks EP. about 1 year ago
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.

FYI : a couple of DAT tapes were missing for the reissue, so vinyl rips were used for mastering, while the rest of the album is entirely sourced from original DATs.
posted a review of Aaron-Carl - Sky. about 1 year ago
I’m pretty sure Aaron-Carl borrowed the speech ‘Daddy, I love you’ from the track B2 on Ascender EP by Walt J, where he recorded his stepson when he was four for the vocals.

‘Sky’ is an uplifting, emotional track and is to me one of the best from ... See full review

Official source (Thomos) who is responsible of releasing Marcus Mixx material says this is a bootleg and in no way associated with the original label. Audio came from needle drops on the original vinyl, very poor quality.

Claude Young, Anthony Shakir, Sean Deason, Terrence Dixon… Oldham for the stunning cover illustration, this is a must have for any respectable Detroit collector.

posted a review of Phase 1 - Memories. over 2 years ago
For me, this one is even better, more obscure and deep, than the Mindsearch EP on the same label. I'm almost sure it's mixed by Anthony Shakir too (he found another pseudonym for these releases and chose 'Hand' in reference to his widely known alias ... See full review

Nice jams in this one with great sampling selections like in 'Droppin' that features some parts from Donald Byrd's 'Think Twice'. Totally different approach from the other releases on the label. This one is not to be missed by old-school hip hop lovers.

I found this one by chance in my local record store. When the needle dropped, it only took a few notes to know it was good as hell.. Amazing EP. All 3 tracks are emotionally induced perfect house arrangements.
posted a comment on Naquil - Krem De La Krem. over 2 years ago
Excellent album with a beautiful sleeve design rarely seen on contemporary house/techno records today. “From Venus With Love” is the highlight on this one for me. It's pure melodic bliss with that Detroit feel.

Does someone know tracks similar as the Marc Romboy's Systematic Soul Remix ? It's positive, it's uplifting. I'm never tired listening to it.
