Sender Berlin - JR 500
posted a review of Sender Berlin - JR 500. 9 months ago
massively underappreciated release.
original mix sounds like an Axis era Mills track with some eerie short strings and killer 909 programming. develops into a complete different beast in the second half with a crazy psychedelic pulsing synth... See full review
Nanospeed - Membran Tracks 5-8
posted a review of Nanospeed - Membran Tracks 5-8. 9 months ago
This one and the other Membran Tracks release have aged incredibly well. Inventive dubby minimal techno with great sound design. The dancefloor tracks work a treat aswell. Really sticks out from the sea of boring low-mid tempo dub techno copycats out there. See full review

Rest in peace, DJ Deeon. Hard to put into words how much of an impact he had on House, Techno and Juke/Footwork music history.
In a more subtle way his influence can even be found in modern pop music and hiphop. All this while keeping it 100%... See full review
Jeff Mills - Steampit EP
posted a review of Jeff Mills - Steampit EP. 11 months ago
He created a legion of copyists who released generic, tribal techno records that lacked all of the skill, soul, funk, and drive that he had mastered and made his own.

Absolutely not true. There are hundreds if not... See full review

To my understanding:•Soleilmoon has an agreement with a member of Jones' estate.•Staalplaat doesn't.

Can you please point to a source for this info?
There is literally nothing to be found online on either label website.
Sandwell District - Feed-Forward

With demand this high they could have easily made the records way cheaper.
Seems like now even techno vinyl is going the way of bullshit "boutique" box sets for bourgeois collectors.

So what is the copyright situation with all this archive music being released on the Staalplaat bandcamp?
Where is the money going? Did Jones just leave this music behind with the label?

Is this funkstorung in their early days? Seems odd this has the same name.

Bonus Beats are completely off the wall. Swiss Jackin madness!
Wish they would have made a 5 minute version of this stripped down style.

Mine is stamped with 8th of August 1997. Probably not the release date judging by how this record sounds?!

posted a review of Ginji Ito = 伊藤銀次* - Winter Wonderland I Thank You. about 1 year ago
This is a pretty fun synth-pop album. For some reason Sony blocks this on youtube or any other streaming service outside of Japan so you will have to take my word for it.

I'm guessing this is Douglas Patterson aka Autobot 1000.
"Living in Detroit" has a similar runout matrix number scheme as the 2004 release "Autobot 1000 – Revolution EP".
Voice sounds similar too.
Dettinger - Totentanz
posted a review of Dettinger - Totentanz. about 1 year ago
Extremely forward thinking EP. Technoid Dembow rhythms like you would expect to hear them on a 2023 record made in 1999.
I could not believe my ears the first time I heard this.

Secret Baltimore Club bomb on the B-Side. Karizma did all his greatest club tracks around this time on Hardhead etc and this one is of the same caliber but 1/10th of the price.

People are sleeping on this series. This is some of the best music Mills has ever made.
It's like the happy medium between his scifi experiments and his more earthy mid 90s sound.

Great to see this reissued.
Idk what source was used for the reissue but the record doesn't exactly sound super clean.
Anyway, the sound aesthetic of the original tracks itself is a bit lo-fi and not mixed very professionally (isn't that the... See full review

posted a review of DJ Etnic - Stardust Symphonie. about 1 year ago
Not sure why people are trying to sell this for speculative prices over 20€. It's pretty generic big room prog trance (think, Tiësto).
Nothing like the label design and limited availability would have you believe.
Similar as to what can be found on... See full review

The sometimes sudden volume changes of the pad on B1 are a simple but genius way of keeping this track interesting.

Wonder what happened to him. He was destined for greatness imo. Amazing records, most of them working and mixing with talented session musicians. The potential for a career even in the wider music business was there as far as I can tell. Even did some... See full review

Samuel L Session - Fallen Funk Files

Might just be any random reversed voice sample but "Purpose" sounds like it samples "Kid Creole And The Coconuts – Adnaloy", evidenced by the aptly named track "Kid Creole" on the B2.

In the same post he mentioned that the CD was mastered with low bitrate mp3 files. Looking at the CD on a spectrum analyzer confirms this sadly. The only possibility for a proper reissue that remains is GD or JS's family having backup copies of the... See full review

No wonder nobody is talking about it when a 12" record (not even an LP) from this vinyl only label costs 35€ minimum at a European distro on release. The music is pretty great though.

One of the most underrated German 90s techno producers. Never afraid to get a bit weird with the sound design but keeping a purist Hood/Mills style approach to the rhythms. Also made some cool electro tracks. Overall his sound reminds me of Voiteck... See full review

Buckfunk 3000 - Modulation

Killer! More straight forward machine techno than the other Buckfunk records and thus reminiscent of Beggs's releases on Eukatech. Cool synth sounds, Chicago influenced drum trax with IDM-leaning beat repeats and fills to keep things interesting (esp.... See full review
