When this first came out, I was still massively into The Acrobat, and I didn't think it really compared; however, on a re-listen with a fresh set of ears, I am very much enjoying it. It's not got the same crunch as The Acrobat, but I'm sure that's a ... See full review

Every mix of this track is just excellent. What an absolutely brilliant 12". Buy on sight.

It's just been repressed - check out Selectors 001 on the Dekmantel label.
posted a comment on Jon Cutler - It's Yours (Frankie Feliciano Remixes Pt. 2). 3 months ago
Frankie Feliciano's dance ritual edit is incredibly similar to George Benson's "World Is a Ghetto" from his album "In Flight". A good tune nonetheless.

An interesting feature of the CD versions of this, and the single Hidden Camera, is that both seem to feature a vinyl sound effect at the beginning. I don't think for a minute that either CD is a vinyl rip, but it just seems that the label decided they ... See full review

posted a comment on Blame - Solar Burn / Solar Burn VIP. 4 months ago
It's a jazz thing was based on an existing track, Shadows by Lonnie Liston Smith & The Cosmic Echos, so I guess Blame didn't feel the need to get permission. The best ideas are always someone else's ideas.
posted a review of A Touch Of Jazz - Respected Not Accepted / Taz. 5 months ago
Both sides of this record show an absolute next level of musicality that was never really bettered.

Respected Not Accepted has incredibly crisp, original breaks - quite unique for the time when most other producers were churning out endless amen ... See full review

It's easy to assume that Good Looking Records had the monopoly on this sound but a bit of digging around other labels at the time can uncover some real gems that just as good. This is a lovely EP of tracks that really nail the classic atmospheric drum & ... See full review

This is one of those "dark" jungle classics (around the same era as Ed Rush's Bludclot Art Attack) that has stood the test of time. The eerie synth intro is beautiful. Inna Rhythm also ditch the tried-and-tested amen breaks that dominated the scene in ... See full review

Track 6, the main piece, is almost certainly a vinyl rip. The quality is very poor. Avoid this version if you can, It's almost certainly a bootleg.
posted a comment on Grant (24) - The Acrobat. 11 months ago
I honestly think it's meant to sound like that. Mine's the same. It's a very lo-fi album. Shame there's no digital release to compare it to. Great album nonetheless.

This is a great album. Mellow, jazzy, sample-heavy deep house music. If you liked Kira Neris then you'd probably enjoy this. 10/10

Atrocious. Don't be curious. Don't put yourself through it. You knew it would be bad. You can't unhear it once you've heard Percy Sugden "singing".

Hommage starts of pretty mellow but a big vocal in the middle really shifts it up a gear. Lovely selection of tunes; Grant's releases really are all "buy on sight" at the moment. He's really at the top of his game at the moment.

During the late noughties, Instra:Mental launched the autonomic podcast, which in turn introduced a new direction for drum & bass in general..a sound which was more experimental; stripped down and minimal.

Over the years that have passed since it's ... See full review

Looks like the mix coming this week (14.04.2017) is a different mix, it's marked as V2 and also, has a longer running time.

Yes, correct. Quite a few old drum & bass references on this album, I thought. A1 is defo Goldie.

This album is absolutely fantastic, musically. It's clearly harder than ever to write instrumental music that engages an audience but the actual musicality of this album is such high quality that it didn't need it. Every track is excellent. My favourite ... See full review

Great album. A bit rough round the edges but charming with it, that's obviously what gives the label's music its character. Lovely music.

Drumz '95 is a bonefide drum & bass classic. Released at the dawn of the tech-step era, Doc Scott's break-switching-arrangement clearly influenced many future tracks, namely DJ Trace's seminal "Mutant Jazz" remix and Ed Rush's "Torque" album.

This an unbelievable, era-defining, technically stunning d&b album that spawned hundreds of poor imitations! Ed Rush & Optical were, at this point in time, at the top of their game as producers in the dnb scene.

"2 Deep" is an unbelievably good "LTJ Bukem"-esque jungle track. It was absolutely blinding at the time it came out and personally speaking, I still can't get enough of it now, 12 years later !! If you're into the deeper side of drum & bass you have to ... See full review
