I dj with vinyl only!

ok first things first....
"Adonis" released "No Way Back" all the way back in nineteen eighty fucking SIX??!?!?! wow wtf, I was only 13 and I wish I had heard it then, it would have changed my life for the better I'm sure, it took me almost 5 more years before I heard similar music and knew my destiny as a techno-head. we have come a long way and still tracks like that from Adonis hold a timeless spot in music where an amazing track can fill a dancefloor and make the people who dont know, come up and ask WHAT THE WHO THE WHERE DID YOU GET THAT?!?!?

haha, one of my favorite tunes of all time. I could listen to it on repeat for an entire day and I have done that before.

DJ since '92... I love it all but stick to the tech-side of the sound and prefer a thoughtfully produced track over a commercial or cheesy sound. house, techno, minimal, hardcore, drum'n'bass, ultrabeat, chillout, there is so much to love but I really have a spot in my heart for robert armani's early work and jeff mills' ability to create something amazing with so few sounds. I did Live PAs with a friend as Point Alpha in the mid 90's and we had shows thru NY, PA and OH, sounds like, um, Rob Hood meets Daft Punk meets Robert Armani? We had a lot of fun thats for sure. Back into the production scene with new gear for 2008 and enjoying the search for old tunes that I missed in days gone by.

I have a great collection of vinyl still and I treasure almost every record I have. There is some great stuff from my favorite artists and crowd still go wild when you can drop an early Frankie Bones - Ghetto Technics tune or Adonis - No Way Back, because the n00bs havent heard much besides the new music being rammed down their ears by the massive conglomerate music scene of today. I wish I bought more vinyl in the early years and I find there was so much good solid techno that I missed out on, damn, labels like Dinko-B and Downwards put out so much good techno but I only bought a bit here and there, arrrrgh!

I have a new found respect for Detroit Techno and the originators of electronic music as well as how nice it was when techno was in demand around my area... not so much anymore, cheesy bars and top-40 remix club music is like a virus and it has taken over! =(

I've done some techno mixes lately to get back into my collection and because its been great to download so many other peoples mixes here thru Discogs I felt the need to give back to our community to help it prosper, long live vinyl and techno!!!

Amazing techno EP with sounds that totally richen up if you slow these down a little. A1 side single cut is my favorite by far, some sublte changes over time, a haunting and driving rhythm, this tune just is seared into my memory. Wonderful creation, ... See full review

Greta piece of vinyl here, it is so beautiful in translucent root beer color, but the music is furious and focused, what a great record. The Umwelt tune is just an amazing creation, its a busy tune with a strong backbone and flows like hot lava.

just a damn good slab of tunes right here. could close my eyes and tell me it was Adonis or any other of the greats that made this. sure got it down proper!

Amazing slab of vinyl. Completely unique tune on each side. I could call either song out with a 5 second listen from across the party. Great quality, enormous presence and booming drums. Difficult to mix into and out of but well worth it. If your ... See full review

Finding and reading about this now halfway thru 2015 is really bending my mind. Warping my perceptions about other music made with this as its backbone (like the Regis/Surgeon camp) from using samples - no mention of the originals left me in the dark. ... See full review

This is one of my most loved vinyl sets and really slices thru the mix with a hard edged stomping techno ritualistic feeling.

I still remember the first time I had the chance to play Patrick Pulsinger's Construction Tool to start off a set of bass heavy techno. This tune set the stage for a seriously impressive dance session of robotic soldiers refusing to take a rest during ... See full review

Man what a disappointment, I bought this with a very open mind, but it is a very awkward collection of tunes and programmed in a way that makes it come off as very spurr of the moment in a way that seems careless. I can understand recording a set like a ... See full review

I just heard Vague Visions on a mix from ToniHC entitled DubbyDub and Vague Visions is a track I have longed to find out more about for a decade now. It has some powerful chords and offbeat timing for the chord stabs that make this a hypnotic techno ... See full review

The Question series was a great find for me in the late '90's being on the hunt for Marco Carola tunes. Each Question release offers 4 strong tracks ranging from minimal to really groovin' tunes but all wrapped around a space-echo'd dubby sound that is ... See full review

Definitely one of the best tracks I have ever heard out of the chicago / acid house era, this is still a floor filler today. The track uses drum sequencing in a way that really shows off some tricks of the TR-808 like fills, stutters, A-B pattern ... See full review

Excellent mix if quality tunes of that era. I prefer this type of acid laden techno housey stuff and this mix is excellent. Some days I think he took shortcuts with the mix but other days I think he was showing skills, ie, reverb the track and fade it ... See full review
