I bought the box new from Cleopatra and it came with the replacement disc.

Sounds similar to my experience. I started going to raves in '95 on the east coast. I bought All Mixed Up after hearing Keoki JDJ mix. Vicious Circles was one of my favorites on this mix. Survive from Brother Grimm and Astrology from Lazonby are couple ... See full review

This is pretty much what you would expect to hear in a Josh Wink DJ set in 1995. I love this mix and track selection. Takes me back to those rave days. If you weren't there, you just wouldn't understand.

Never a "huge" fan of Jungle/Breaks, but this mix is something special. It will always take me back to the time of being at those raves with the pounding bass drums, rolling snares, vocal loops and techno synths of Jungle. If you want to experience a ... See full review

Maybe because he has a funny looking grin and he likes to look at it.

When I first heard "Sick to death" on MTV amp, I couldn't believe the incredible fusion of punk and techno. I immediately bought Burn Berlin Burn. I think ATR music will become "relevant" some time. 199x was just too soon (peak of rave techno). Keep on ... See full review

If you like Detroit techno, buy this.

Compilation should have included "Dancing Tides" (Yennek) IMO. One of his most beautiful tracks.

You can say that I've been waiting for this album for nearly twenty years and though I am older, I very much enjoy it and it is all I expected. Cross between seventies country rock and early nineties Ministry.

The album cover looks familiar. If anyone ... See full review

Cover image is Bettie Page photographed by Bunny Yeager. I bought a poster reprint of the original photograph directly from Bunny some years ago.

ZZ Top were influential to the industrial rock sound that was championed by Al Jourgensen / Ministry. The combination of rock guitars, dance synthesizers and driving beats, from their eighties material in particular, was really innovative for its ... See full review

Yeah, many rock stars do drugs. Is that what this movie is about? Who knows. Al Jourgensen is an extremely creative and talented artist.

My favorite Ministry album and one of my favorite albums period. It is one of those albums that is just unbelievable from the beginning to the end. The songs and the production are something else. Ahead of its time in a way, but you can spot influences, ... See full review

Get this album if you like synth-pop. Side A are awesome songs; side B are alright. I remember getting this on cassette and I loved the side A songs the first time I listen to it. That was after the "Mind is terrible thing to taste" Ministry.

this is one of the finest electronic albums I've ever heard. It is amongst my favorite albums of music. If you apperciate synth-pop, techno, electronica, you must give this album a listen.
posted a comment on DJ Zinc - Volume Seven. over 6 years ago
'Super Sharp Shooter' was big. At the time, it seem to be played at least once at every party where there was jungle/dnb. So much that I got tired of hearing it. I'll never forget the sound of those gunshots.
posted a review of Doc Martin - URBmix Vol. 1: Flammable Liquid. over 13 years ago
Classic tech-house/house tracks that were played at almost every party at that time. Mix is sometimes sort of dark with a warm vibe (much different from the direction Martin went to later on). Definetly has the vibe of the techno-house parties in the mid ... See full review

From what I remember reading, Sony tried to "steal" this track and remix it into a club trance version. After sending threatening letters to UR, Sony gave up and sent the remixed version over to BMG. The project apparently died after that. I don't know ... See full review

Jeff Mills (along with asrock) was the founding member of the industrial/techno outfit "Final Cut" from about '89 to '91. Asrock continued the "Final Cut" project including work on the LP 'Consumed' with Skinny Puppy's Ogre and (i think) Ministry's Chris ... See full review

That last comment was very entertaining. 'Tour De France' is truly a great album, and gets better and better the more I listen to it. There are only few of many musical artists that really have made a real impact on music history. Kraftwerk is definetly ... See full review

One of the alltime best techno LP's to date, IMO. The album is meant to be heard from start to finish. Classic techno tracks 'Gravitational Arch of 10' and 'Vista Humana' are featured on this release. Intelligent, ambient techno full of analog warmth.
posted a review of Kraftwerk - Tour De France Soundtracks. over 14 years ago
Lush, warm analogs. Some tracks comparable to Detroit techno of past, with the signature Kraftwerk style of vocals and melodies. IMO, this is some of the best electronic music released in the recent past. I don't understand why some say it was not worth ... See full review

Green Velvet has defined his own sound of techno-house. Bizarre, funky sounds and noises with abstract vocals and a pounding house beat are the elements of his tracks. I was fortunate to see his live set in '96, in Cleveland OH. It was the best live set ... See full review

Excellent selection of hard jackin techno. Beat Junkies (K. Alexi Shelby) 'Louder Now' contains a sample of the Isley's 'Shout'. Sam Walker 'Just Can't Get Enough' contains lyrics from the Depeche Mode track. 'Krautrock' is an excellent Surgeon track ... See full review

Many of the initial released copies were defective. A second issue of 'Last Rights' was released with a sticker slapped on the cardboard box marked "quality controlled".

Pure minimalistic analogues and beats. Also released as Pan Sonic (copy that I own) which I assume was due to legal reasons.
posted a review of Dopplereffekt - Linear Accelerator. over 14 years ago
Experimental, complex, machine-influenced electronics. No beats. Kind of sounds like it could have been a soundtrack to an "id" video game or a strange eerie futuristic thriller. Very good, but not dancefloor material.

One of the finest Detroit techno LP's to date. Smooth, spacey synths and rhythms with a touch of funky flavor. A true defining album of Detroit techno from the mid-90's.

This is "the" techno CD to buy. Hawtin puts together a mix that we all know and love him for. Vath finishes it with retro-like techno and tech house. The updated remix of the classic Koening Cylinders "99.9" is sick. Sven Vath "Steel (M.Carola rmx)" and ... See full review

My favorite house mix CD. DJ Pierre mix is more on the progressive with a funky disco feel and a touch of acid. Orlando Voorn, hard and darker. Peak hour mixes. Compilation of Floorwax releases

Classic house mix. Style ranges-dark, tribal, acid, and deep house.
