Criminally under-appreciated album from the genre shifting Kosheen. A true mix of darkness and light, heaviness and ethereal drift. Very well produced low end that hits in all the right places. Somehow none of the gems on this record charted as a... See full review

Stunning powerful vocal from Charlotte Kelly on this - still in the box - disco bomb some 20 years later!!! Happy hands in the air track!

Tragically ignored and underrated and even William Orbit himself claims he is embarrassed by Bassomatic productions. For me, this was a watershed record that sounds quite dated now but still brings a smile and a million memories attached to it. Would... See full review

Very excellent offering from Tornado. Tribal beats and smothering production. Musical but still dance floor friendly in the right hands. Certainly in the best of 2020 discussions though lost to the dance floors that don't exist at this time....

Wonderful, jazzy, techy downtempo from one of half of the true kings (Cobby) of the slowed down sound. Steve Cobby and Porky kill it on this beautiful and criminally ignored release.

This will certainly be repressed at some point. Save your hard earned money and avoid the gouging that goes on here. It is a great single but not worth the prices here....

The "backstage" was in the kitchen in the house. I never meant any disrespect to him. Maybe he was having a bad day. I don't know, maybe I was the douche but c'mon throw me a bone here I clearly was just making an icebreaker kind of a joke. As you... See full review

Killer killer offering from Mr. Onyeabor. The analog synths with the rat at tat 808z is pure magic. Can't rate this higher. Blowing up my brain right now.

Easily my favorite Kid Creole track. Funky, fun, and witty. This is a classic by the same great musician's that penned Dr. Buzzard's Cher Chez la Femme and it is the dope arrangement that makes this track jump. Still in the box some nearly 40 years later... See full review

Met Moby once and it was very telling. He played at a rescue farm for animals in upstate New York (shocker, I know). He played most of the hits as acoustic guitar versions by himself. After the gig, which was OK, I went with a friend backstage to meet... See full review

How in gods name has this never been repressed? An absolute gem of a track that drifts along and builds to near crescendo after near crescendo only to slip back down deep again. Dreamy and sublime with flutes, floaty key pads and the 'Close Your Eyes'... See full review

Saint Etienne continue to thrill. Nine albums in and still plenty of ideas and a balance between the shimmery pop brilliance of 'Dive' or 'Out Of My Mind' to the darkly creeping 'Sweet Arcadia'. Lucky enough I was to see them on this tour, and with a... See full review

Top shelf this one. Dreamy 80z synthery and it does have a Kate Bush feel to it. The guitar work reminds me of the Fixx and overall it is like the long-lost soundtrack to Pilotwings. Drifting, melodic, smooth and summery.

Absolute banger that is dying for a reissue. Picked this up for a buck and it maybe the best 1$ I've ever spent on a house record. For me its all about the Hyp mix with its DJ Pierre-ish Wild Pitch punch. Scorching!

The track 'Holiday' is for all intents and purposes a cover of Change's - Lover's Holiday as the melody is lifted straight from the aforementioned track albeit in the Monday's style.

Loving this right now...dreamy house and beatdown for the seasoned ear, lots happening low in the mix. The track Night Fever grabbed me right away with its tribal drums and minimal house feel. Very nice work!
