I attempted to buy this release from the seller back in 2008 when it was listed. The seller said they "had a problem with the original buyer" and would sell it to me instead. I sent the money and received nothing but excuses and then silence. This was... See full review

Awesome mix, with great variety and fantastic track selection! Amazingly, Andy C mixed this on 3 Technics turntables... quite a feat, considering how many tracks are on here!

Four great, historical live mixes from the golden age of UK breakbeat hardcore! Unfortunately, the Stu Allan and Phantasy mixes are completely ruined by extremely annoying (and over-amplified) MC-ing.

Content-wise, the Easygroove mix is phenomenal,... See full review

Great review, and one of the reasons why I bought this track. You are absolutely right in that the production does not sound dated at all. You can DEFINITELY rock a club with this track today, bar none! Thanks for the recommendation!
Luke Fair - Balance 011
posted a review of Luke Fair - Balance 011. over 14 years ago
I am a huge fan of the entire Balance series, and this is one of the best, most soulful releases of all of them!

CD1 starts with a extremely chilled spaced out, vocoded vibe and rapidly transitions to seriously funky at track 4. The deep, moody,... See full review

I really wish a non-vocal version of this album had been released. The synth programming and selection is absolutely fantastic on this, but the vocals do not work. Kuperus sounds like she is desperately trying to imitate X "Los Angeles"-era Exene... See full review

Absolutely phenomenal progressive house mix from Dubfire. CD1 is the better of the two which, after a gradual start kicks into the incredibly warm and deep "Myself" by BBQ. The mix continues to deepen, and almost has an "underwater" feel, until the... See full review

I can't believe that this release has not been commented on yet!!!

One of the greatest hardcore records ever released! Some of the most uplifting synth lines and vocals ever pressed to vinyl!!! Can be a bit stresfull to mix into into a live... See full review

As heard on the legendary DJ John Kelley's Funkydesertbreaks 2, this track absolutely epitomizes the late 1990s desert rave scene of California! Some incredibly deep and meaningful breaks, thrown down across a scorching house beat with acid... See full review

Amazingly, I was unable to purchase this record at all while in South Africa for 2 months (although I had heard of and witnessed the devastation that it was causing on local dance floors!!) On the way back to Europe, I chanced upon the whitelabel in... See full review
Inverto - Time To Jack
posted a review of Inverto - Time To Jack. over 14 years ago
One of the best house records to come out recently, and arguably quite under appreciated. "Time To Jack" is good, but not amazing, although it definitely succeeds in building some energy along with some weirdness in the breakdown, as well as some... See full review
Terrorize - It's Just A Feeling
posted a review of Terrorize - It's Just A Feeling. over 14 years ago
Track A1 is a surprisingly banging and very uplifting house remix of this track! Some excellent synth lines, far different from the released version of this, combined with a typical house beat of the 1992/93 era.

A2 is the orginal mix, so it does... See full review

I only have the second disc of this set, but I have to say that it is absolutely sublime. First of all, this is no pro-tools folly-- this sounds exactly like it was mixed how it should be, live on Technics 1200s. And is it mixed! A definite highlight... See full review
Soul 'Amour - Alegria
posted a review of Soul 'Amour - Alegria. over 16 years ago
Extremely good house track here with some very serious latin flava! Stick to the "Espanol" mix as the vocals sound much better.... The jazzy horns in this are absolutely phenomenal, coupled with a latinized bassline that will have you waving your... See full review

Absolutely scorching prog house floor filler with some severely pounding, rolling bass. Technical prowess is definitely displayed as Slide v. Healy tweak, bleep, and electrify Chris Isaak's "Wicked Game" vocals into pure dance floor devastation in the... See full review

Incredible downtempo/ambient remixes of mid to late 1990s classic trance anthems. Although every track on this release is excellent, the included remixes of Greece 2000, Xstasia, and Miro's "By Your Side" are phenomenal and the remix of BBE's "Seven... See full review
Thievery Corporation - The Foundation
posted a review of Thievery Corporation - The Foundation. over 17 years ago
This record is worth every penny of the enormous prices it fetches on eBay for the track "Transcendence" alone. Amazingly deep and rhythmically complex track that, in my opinion, is one of Thievery's best.

A note to DJs... Although this track is on... See full review

This record was actually done as a joke, and featured only records that were on the want list of the guy who did Killed By Death #5 and Killed By Death #6.

Excellent record, with great old school punk tracks. Most of the original 7"s that these... See full review
Karen Ramirez - Lies

The Tilt remix of this this track is a classic late-90s trance anthem. Hammered by Oakenfold and many others. Tilt throws down a storming, pulsating beat with nice ring-modulated synth sounds for the vocals of Ramirez to surf over. Great synergy here... See full review
Sunscreem - Perfect Motion

Great to see this classic and absolutely undeniably timeless classic re-pressed on the excellent S12 label. This pressing is superb, on ultra-thick vinyl.

The "Boys Own" mix of this track is probably one of the greatest house tracks ever produced.... See full review
Blu Mar Ten - The Feeling / Drendie Girl
posted a review of Blu Mar Ten - The Feeling / Drendie Girl. over 17 years ago
Chill track. Samples the bassline from Thin Lizzy's "Waiting For An Alibi", adding future jazz style female vocals over a breakbeat. Unfortunately, the bassline loops continuously throughout the entire track, and gets a bit monotonous.

I accidentally threw this on at 33rpm. The A side ("Moon Warrior") actually sounds much better pitched down... Could definitely be integrated into a new school breaks set with good results--especially at an early point, to set a dark mood--visions of... See full review

Incredible deep, driving and dirty progressive house. Heavy rolling bass propels this track along while sharp-hitting string chords hypnotize and build the track.

The Original Vigado Mix is very dark, and makes good use of a one word male vocal... See full review

Bouncing floor-filling funky house!

"We Know Now" is definitely the stand-out track, with heavy, funky basslines, and distorted guitar power chords and riffs. Excellent delivery of a minor vocal sample as well. Production on this track is... See full review
B.I.T.E. - J.A.W.S.
posted a review of B.I.T.E. - J.A.W.S.. over 18 years ago
This track samples the main theme from Jaws, as well as dialog from the movie.

The beats hit hard and fast but the synths, unfortunately, are pretty generic. Still, the inclusion of the Jaws sample works well with this hard trance track.

Absolutely amazing soundtrack from Thomas Bangalter (1/2 of Daft Punk). This record runs the gamut from dark, deeply disturbing ambient tracks, to fast-driving, funky french house beats. The soundtrack also includes some classical music tracks as... See full review

Quite possibly one of the rarest progressive trance records in existence, this vinyl is definately worth searching for. Tilt's Human Mix of "Invisible" is probably the greatest mix ever released of this timeless track. The "Human Mix" is darker and... See full review
posted a review of Garbage - Stupid Girl. over 19 years ago
This record is a mash-up of "Stupid Girl" by Garbage, over the beat from Azzido Da Bass's "Dooom's Night". Mix "A" sports a DJ Icey-styled funky break beat, while Mix "B" is a progressive house stomper.

Yes, that is right... This is the breaks record that samples Guns N' Roses "Sweet Child Of Mine," in excellent style... definately one of the best incorpations of a rock sample into a breaks transgression.... This one is definately worth the $40+ it... See full review

This is definately one of the phattest breaks 12"s to come out in the 2000s! Incredibly banging bass and drums combine with great acidic synth lines and nice vocoder action to make this a top record in any breaks DJs box. Fans of DJ Icey-styled breaks... See full review

This version of the single contains the mix of "The Gloom" that was included on Sasha & Digweed's "Northern Exposure" compilation. (The "Original" mix, not the "Trancedub" is the track they used)!

This record is mind-bendingly great!
