Fuckin' A! This finally convinces me that it's time to dust off those ol' reinforced 12"s in the club! If the Special Request 12"s from earlier this year were of any indication, this definitively puts hardcore (slash breakbeat slash jungle) back on the ... See full review

When I first heard The Chase, it reminded me of how I felt when I first heard Jamal Moss. Nuff said! This indeed some wonderfull mind-fuck from a fictional future. I wanna go dance there!

The B side on this is one deepest house track I've ever heard. The bass is primitive and cavernous as fuck, the drums are super eerie and psychedelic, and the vocal loop is just damn sexy. A cornerstone on how to make loads with extremely little Oh, and ... See full review

I sincerely doubt those are ltd to 50 copies each. And the series is now way past 100 "releases" as well. Making people pay for CDRs is IMHO a tad wrong. Either make a blog with downloads or wait for official reissues if those happen.

The Cornmelt Mix is such a perfect dance track. It sounds like what garage/2-step would become after dubstep, 8 years later. The rest of the tracklist is pure cheese, but that mix, almost more than a guilty pleasure.

Some of those records have two pressings, but all second press actually have the 1st press vinyl and a second press sleeve with more generic artwork. For example, R. Murray Schafer's Threnody LP was first issued in 1971 but later re-issued in 1979 with ... See full review

I don't remember the rest of the EP, but the first track, "This Is Voodoo", a superb masterpiece that evokes the very best of Jamal Moss, like his rmx for Osbourne or the very first African With Mainframes EP. Raw jackin' house with closed filters.

Scream (Acid-Pella Mix) is one of the few acid house track that sets a pattern for a future that never happened. Rodney Bakerr was thinking outside the box, but it was still damn sexy and floor-friendly, in a letffield way. Sheer awesomeness!

A side is a rework of UB40's Don't Break My Heart. And it's actually a wonderful track!

Wow! Finaly figured this one out!I Won't Hurt You (I Swear)'s main loop is lifted from Carl Bean - I Was Born This Way - Check at 04:49! Great use of the original sample, totaly transfiguring it. Need I say this is one of the alltime best house track ... See full review

Comfortable Gestures is a perfect balearic post-punk tune. Great effect on the discerning dance-floor.

As much as I love his first release, this is nothing but derivative and brings nothing to the table. Highly disappointing release!

Falling Acid starts out quite ambientishly before progressively turning into the monster acid deep-house cut that it is.
Tin Man only achieved that level of lushness in his recent vocal stuff, a hint for the upcomming musical shift that was to be. Slow ... See full review

The Cursor Miner track is a remix of Coil's own remix of NIN's Closer that was featured but uncredited as soundtrack for opening credits to the movie 7even. It's actually not nearly as good as the original.

That is exactly where I see dance music going. Like Kid Creole, Konk and Sutekh jamin together... Fantastic tunes with great build up. Looking forward the next record, and it appears the man takes his time!

Probably the most musical recording of Bayle. The dronesque sinewaves add huge depth and harmonic quality to Bayle's trademark concrete sound. Beautiful

The HIA rmx has some surprising qualities : at 33 RPM, it plays as a top notch electronica Coil piece, very dubby and haunting. Very worth to seek out if you're into abstract electronica, whatever that means... The Scanner rmx is nothing special though.
