RRR - Rendezvous / Chat
posted a review of RRR - Rendezvous / Chat. 4 months ago
You've got the wrong pressing. The real B side is quite to the point concretism/minimalism in a cologne acid way.
Doctor Rockit - Ready To Rockit EP
posted a review of Doctor Rockit - Ready To Rockit EP. 5 months ago
One of the best M Herbert productions. Wonderful packaging and beats rockin' all the way through with a healthy dose of british sillyness.
Various - House Life

nutty cold/warm irony laden house jams from the far north.
Various - Get Lost
posted a review of Various - Get Lost. 12 months ago
All four tracks are quality, and the Sterac track even a minor hit. The Baby Ford track wins it for me, with its combination of haunting melancholic strings and stoic tricky percussion.
Death - The High Costs Of Living
posted a review of Death - The High Costs Of Living. about 1 year ago
Hard to believe this is by Thomas P Heckmann. Completely psychedelic and distraught analogue experiments which takes a bit of nerve to expose to the dancefloor.
Antiguo Autómata Mexicano - Microhate
posted a review of Antiguo Autómata Mexicano - Microhate. about 1 year ago
Quite underrated, cohesive and well-composed album of intricate glitchy micro-techno from the genres heyday. Holds up today.

The Modernist - Opportunity Knox
posted a review of The Modernist - Opportunity Knox. about 1 year ago
Very pleasant, non-aggressive muzak-like easy going minimal dance tracks. Well put together.

Unique quirky electronica/techno label. Could only come from the UK. Similar to Irdial in its approach I would say.
Love Inc. - New Jack City
posted a review of Love Inc. - New Jack City. about 1 year ago
In-form Mike Ink delivers for the rave massive. 303 and 909 adulation en masse. Go for it.
Voks - Tre Små Spøgelseshistorier
posted a review of Voks - Tre Små Spøgelseshistorier. about 1 year ago
This is like a haunted DBX record. Has a certain fragile feel not heard elsewhere. Definitely a unique record.

One of the most important labels in the last decade and now
Justin Berkovi

Solid producer of slamming techno that keeps you on your toes. From a time when underground techno was still fun and not too serious.
Cai Bojsen-Møller - Revert Rhythm

Top notch funky techno; you can hear this guy used to be (and still is) a top notch drummer. 10 points.
Jammin' Unit - Flower Swing
posted a review of Jammin' Unit - Flower Swing. over 2 years ago
Avantgarde breakbeat acid mayhem like you never heard it before. A masterpiece.
Taylor Overtone Deupree* - Freak Of Nature
posted a review of Taylor Overtone Deupree* - Freak Of Nature. over 2 years ago
Very impressive, idiosyncratic debut from Taylor Deupree on the cult Tension label. Quirky industrial romanticism sitting well outside the mainstream techno sound
Bizz O.D. - Black Jack E.P.
posted a review of Bizz O.D. - Black Jack E.P.. over 3 years ago
Tic Tac is the main one and you all know; the heaviest grungey acid groove to hit a dancefloor in the 90s.
Kotai - AT&T
posted a review of Kotai - AT&T. over 3 years ago
One of the foundations of minimal techno. Heavily underrated today.
Inga Mauer - Bad Manners 6
posted a review of Inga Mauer - Bad Manners 6. over 3 years ago
Worth it for the sneaky bassline and dusty mix on "Islington" alone
Area (3) - Not Waiting Anymore
posted a review of Area (3) - Not Waiting Anymore. over 3 years ago
Perfect use of voice sampling in the haunting title track. A fine example of "less is more".
Cristian Vogel - Lambda EP

Can't disagree with you on Dave Angel. Funk techno extraordinaire. Vogel got the industrial machinery integrated harder though.
Hieroglyphic Being - The Red Notes
posted a review of Hieroglyphic Being - The Red Notes. over 3 years ago
Solid album in his unmistakable style; very beautiful touching passages crop up among the chaotic, but not unpleasant rhytmic semi-improvisations. Widely available, probably a decent amount pressed.
Grungerman - Fackeln Im Sturm
posted a review of Grungerman - Fackeln Im Sturm. over 3 years ago
Never surpassed grungy techno schlager interpretations. Hard to do something like this today.

Sadly no "smoke me" on this one? : : :

This is eternal bliss for me. Someone please reissue or repress this one!
Maxd* - Highlife

NIce little evocative W Burns remix. Original is fun, retroesque but still acceptable. This is still cheap, go for it!

Soul searching dance music that goes deeeep.

Instantly recognisable sound somewhere between New York house and Basic Channel.
Dave Angel
posted a review of Dave Angel. over 4 years ago
Bridged the early Detroit/Chicago sound with more ravey/euro elements and in the early to mid-90s one of the most funky dudes in techno. Uplifting without ever being cheesy.
Monrella - Build Time EP
posted a review of Monrella - Build Time EP. over 4 years ago
Not your standard hard aggressive techno record and this one stands out as does most of the Monrella output. There's an wonderful primitive rhythmic dynamic here different than most of the stuff around.
Studio 1 - Grün

The B2 is the funkiest Studio 1 track of the series. Pure cologne boogie magic.
Studio 1 - Lila

My favorite of the series. Stoic sexiness. A funky Clint Eastwood cut to vinyl. Never surpassed.

Very underrated creative techno producer. A different spin on things on most of his records.
Disco Nihilist - Moving Forward
posted a review of Disco Nihilist - Moving Forward. over 4 years ago
'Film Grain' is my favorite track by the Disco Nihilist (brilliant moniker). Joyful and bittersweet at the same time. Precious record.

This a record to have fun and fall in love with.

On another level back then. Even his worst tracks are brilliant.

A certain amount of bass pressure is to be found in "B-Surfer".
Pin-Ups In Exile - Spritetrax
posted a review of Pin-Ups In Exile - Spritetrax. over 4 years ago
'Pullback' has that sparse transparent sound popular in 90s techno. Insanely funky and mixable. Personal favorite.

I guess this is what the DJs would be describe as a 'secret weapon'
Mole People - Mole People
posted a review of Mole People - Mole People. over 4 years ago
'Luv Luv Lik Lik' is tear-inducing beautiful. This is by Gary Martin, the unsong hero of the weird funky end of 90s underground techno.

posted a review of Cristian Vogel - Narco Synthesis EP. over 4 years ago
With 'Clear Air Turbulence' Cristian Vogel proves you can make fast hardcore industrial techno funky. Not an easy feat.

Slammin record all around. Nothing fancy but that's not what you need anyways.

I find Two Fat Downloads as his weakest or most conventional. This one is more like Vogel undiluted.

This record is at least divisive. That's at least something. Too much consensus around nowadays.

Title track is an underrated flowing techno trance smasher with a nice warm groove.

A touch of genius here. This is a record that will turn heads on the floor. Probably clear it as well, but take your chance!

Incredible energy and drive, very very hard to replicate. Perfect 'trashy' production value. A master at work
