A nice gospel house record. Great vocal and jazzy production.
Madleen Kane - Chéri
posted a review of Madleen Kane - Chéri. 11 months ago
My dad had a great compilation LP on the discovatin label, and seeing as there are hardly any releases, I took a punt and bought the whole back catalogue.

Cheri is a perfectly executed disco pop LP, and I really love every track. It's got all the... See full review
Various - Diversified Bombs: Chapter 1
posted a review of Various - Diversified Bombs: Chapter 1. about 1 year ago
The drum programming on Mario Fabriani's Jerky Jackin is really extraordinary. Anyone that's ever worked in a sequencer like Cubase will know how hard it is to get that kind of swing in your sequence. This is masterful house music, very impressive stuff.

Nice pressing, very clean. Have been looking for a copy of this for quite some time, was delighted when it popped up at Juno Records.

For anyone looking for the digital releases listed here, Beatport appear to have LBC001-LBC004, and LBC006, but they don't have The Acrobat, LBC005.

Great compilation....the Rupture track is merely an excerpt from a much longer track; I managed to get a Japanese reissue of the full album, if you enjoyed the track, I'd recommend seeking out the LP.
Use Of Weapons - Stan's Plan / Planet Earth (Remix)
posted a review of Use Of Weapons - Stan's Plan / Planet Earth (Remix). about 1 year ago
A very unique drum & bass record..Stan's Plan kicks off with dramatic, evocative strings and rhodes pianos, followed by a fresh acoustic drum break and a super funky fretless bassline that progresses throughout the song...I suppose it could be... See full review
Plug - Drum'N'Bass For Papa
posted a review of Plug - Drum'N'Bass For Papa. about 1 year ago
Listening back now, for the first time in many years, It's quite a silly album in some ways, but it's clearly a real crate-digging album.

This is drum & bass when it was all about trawling through obscure records for fresh new breaks, and there's a... See full review

Black Science Labs - Space Age / Hypnotic
posted a comment on Black Science Labs - Space Age / Hypnotic. over 2 years ago
The "Space Age" drum programming is an almost exact replica of Photek's knitevision, from his Form & Function Volume 1 LP... but you have to give Teebee a lot of respect for being able to reproduce it so faithfully; it's not easy to do.
David Lynch - The Twin Peaks Archive

"It's Your Father" is the scariest piece of music I've ever heard in my life. The marriage of visuals and music in FWWM always blew me away, but to hear these cues is even more extraordinary. How did they make this terrifying music? Don't pass on this... See full review

I felt great relief and celebration upon hearing this album. Unlike the previous two, I can listen to this album all the way through without skipping. This, for me, is the go-to Dopplereffekt album.

Every piece is precisely arranged, to the point,... See full review

The second CD of this release, which contains the downtempo tracks, was previously released under the name FanuSamurai, and was an album in it's own right, called Focused Mind. The FanuSamurai tracks only made the CD, not the vinyl.

As the years go by, this record stands out in my collection as a real wild card; stylistically it's unapologetically all over the place - from the mission impossible-esque "Planet Plan", to the big band sensibilities of tracks like "Friends", with... See full review

Nah, those generic "DJ Shadow" print sleeves are widely understood to be bootlegs. I've got two - one is the Headz 12", the other is the Number Song Cut Chemist remix.

This 12" is well worth picking up for the "All Night Long" instrumental; very nice to hear the arrangement and all the work that obviously went into it. What a classic!

Isn't there "Ain't Nobody" by Chaka Khan (or a cover) between 1.36 and 1.37? It comes in at the 18:21 mark.

I stumbled across Kira Neris randomly around 2010 whilst browsing the "Broken Beat/Nu Jazz" section of Juno Records, and loved it immediately. The two albums are a masterclass in sampling, and I think of him as the jazzy DJ Shadow. Everyone I've... See full review

This is simply one of my most treasured records. I don't think it'll offend anyone to say that Liz is clearly not a master pianist, but the simplicity and urgency of these recordings is very emotive and makes for a very engaging album. I never tire of... See full review

Serious, serious tune. Worthy of it's high value. Wow. Looking back, it's hard to deny that DJ Fokus was a real groundbreaking producer, on a par with the likes of Photek and Source Direct, for sure. Incredible drum work.

Back in 2001, this was played on BBC Radio 1 by Gilles Peterson. It took me a few days to ID it, such was the world at the time. Thankfully, within a week, I had a fresh copy in my hands!

Great tune, the vocal mix is pretty good but the 'Extramental Mix' works perfectly without the vocal, and is my preferred mix.

Blank Tape is comprised of gentle vignettes, ambient techno, and a few sprawling, beatless experiments. Like the very best electronic music, it's clear that WAS aren't influenced by the well-worn tropes of modular synthesis or vintage gear nonsense -... See full review

There's obviously a lot of amen break tunes on Good Looking. For a while, I found the label a bit boring based on the fact a lot of singles were either Hot Pants or Amen Break tunes - but to be fair, they are the best two breakbeats. In hindsight, it... See full review
