LOW VOLUME SELLER= TIME TO TAKE CARE OVER MY GRADINGS & CUSTOMERS :-) I grade close up, under bright light, & have 20/20 vision/'enginears'. Your in safe hands.........

Record collector since 1981. DJ since 1990. Originally from Nottingham, England. Inspired by drum machines & experimental electronics. Survived (barely) the rave/hardcore/acid house/techno/1st & 2nd gen house/D&B/ music scenes. Raised on Hip Hop/electro. Drum break fanatic. Jazz & Funk disposition. Likes a bit of Disco. Tastes: B-R-O-A-D

My advice when selling on this site is to read the Discogs grading rules, read them again, put your glasses on, open the curtains, study the vinyl surfaces & grade correctly, close up under a bright light. Would make it a better place for all...

I have sold many more records than my feedback shows (around double) however not all can be bothered to leave feedback. From those buyers, no news is good news, so rest assured, your in safe hands...:-)

More playable now than some of the back catalog due to being a lower key release & with a lasting soul. A standout 12", perhaps out-shadowed by the heat of 'Lucid State/Shores Of Caladan' etc, but with a lasting shelf life.

Important to consider that these are tools for techno DJ's; The ultimate creativity is what you do with them. As for Orbital, Drexciya etc, electronic compositions & intended as a more layered, complex listen. So really we are comparing different things.
