What a strange comment to make. Either it has been properly credited and there's no reason to post this, or it hasn't been properly credited, and despite acting like you care well enough about whether it has been, you haven't bothered to look into the ... See full review

An answer to your 3-year-old question on a 16-year-old comment: I would assume that they're saying 50%-60% of the tracks are pure genius, not that between 50 and 60 tracks are genius.

Despite it being more than 16 years after this review was written, I'm going to jump in with a pedantic comment about it being his "penultimate" album. Penultimate means second to last, and isn't a way of describing something as being 'better than ... See full review

Does anyone have any info about release #17? Wikipedia shows it to be the same release name with the same release date as PH18, however next to the release on #17 it's written (banished release).

Does anyone know if Love, Peace and Grease (1997) sampled May The Funk Be With You by The Jedi Knights (1994), or if the drums and clap from May The Fourth Be With You cam from somewhere else?

I agree 110%. On its own, it's an amazing track. If you're listening to it through the lens of loving the original track, it will not be your cup of tea.

The Micronauts had a mix they had put out some time in 2000, and its sound is similar to what ... See full review

I'm not a doctor, but I'm pretty sure this record doesn't belong on DJ Hyperactive's techno label that now releases exclusively in .mp3 format.

The name of the EP is actually misspelled as "The Judgment" and not "Judgement" as it is correctly spelled here. See the image of the record label posted here.

To add a further correction: The Beastie Boys used the same sample from Loran's Dance before Jestofunk on To All The Girls of off Paul's Boutique from 1989.

EDIT: I see now that DJMRST has already cited this.

There is absolutely no way your comment was intended to go with this particular song.
posted a comment on Armand Van Helden - Extra Dimensional. over 2 years ago
The term 'blatant ripoff' really fits the bill here with the track Oz Moses. It is a poor attempt at re-making Bobby Konders' acid classic Nervous Acid. Jarring hi-hats that sound way too loud in place of that classic, bubbling acid riff. Not sure if ... See full review

Did it take you 13 years to come up with that or are you finally getting over being insulted and now feel that you can talk about it?

It is. Under *Real Name* at the top of the page it is spelt with the ! after You. But I'm unsure of why this alternate version is used as the main on the page.

Hey, everybody! This guy has original pressings. See? Nobody cares. And as a rule, if you want distance yourself from hipsters, try not sounding like one by being the guy saying you liked something before it blew up. You're telling other users they ... See full review

Just wanted to point out that the song by the Joubert Singers is 'Stand On The Word'. Not being pedantic, as I'm sure you're well aware of the actual title, but for others who might be interested in looking up this gem and giving it a listen.

I can only shake my head at Spectral and wonder what they were thinking. The original version of Dog Days was just so great that to release these, in my opinion, very sub-par and uninspired mixes is to do a dis-service to the original.

Dominik Eulberg and Gabriel Ananda have hit the nail on the head with this remix. A beautiful track. It knocks you back as soon as it starts with a deep driving bass, that slowly fades out only to come back in just as hard, but this time accompanied ... See full review
