Um, well (cough), this is France Gall. Until now, before I accidentially came across this one, I used to run away as soon as I noticed myself listening to one of her bizarre (German speaking) Schlager products. But this one baffled me big time. She is ... See full review

This one had everything what it takes for a cool oldskool-electro mover: the sound, the beats and the funkyness are fine here. disturbingly the sad part is the record lacks of utter political correctness, even for 1984, as the lyrics make fun at the ... See full review

yeah, it's all about sex. the highlight is surely the "Bedroom Mix" which is a realized acoustic blow-job in the first place. "Stars On Number Nine" uses alienated samples from Michael Jackson's "Bad" release but is overall a good funky dance track ... See full review
posted a review of The Future (2) - Nuclear Holocaust. over 11 years ago
TOP oldskool electro-slammer released at the heyday of this genre and it contains a political component as it is a statement against the Cold War. Anologue repetitive pattern as usual for that time but hardly to exceed in funkyness compared to nowadays ... See full review
posted a review of Max Tundra - Children At Play. over 12 years ago
I learned to love this record. The main track on side A starts with a short child melody (which IMO sounds better played at 45 rpm) slightly distorted from time to time. It then turns into drill'n'bass mode with a jazzy attitude. I know many people who ... See full review

..and I felt a strong need to comment this album here. In some way it is very astonishing that it already came out in 1993, a time which was considered as the age of "Intelligent Techno" or "Intelligent" especially by british music press. This one sounds ... See full review

Where I have been when this came out? No mediocre track at all on this record, it is a fantastic sound experience here. Emphasized ambient melodies between fine minimal electronica rhythms. "Collage Of Dreams" is one of those tracks impossible ever to ... See full review

This is another treasure I recently retrieved from my archive and I didn't knew that I still own it... today I think it's a brilliant release. Funky experimental robo-tech electro which reminds me in some parts a bit on Kraftwerk (especially the tracks ... See full review

Once again, this compilation is great, especially the Blake Baxter tracks... I don't think they are underproduced, the production standards nowadays are far better than 1988. Despite there are hits like "Big Fun" it contains more funk than the most ... See full review

Mono record of a pioneer of the earliest electronic music, Robert George "Joe" Meek. "Telstar" was probably the first strange sounding no.1 in UK charts & the sure first british no.1 in the states. This track was an hommage to the first communication ... See full review

There are much tricky arragements in rhythms and a lot of sound variations in it, that's really an astonishing work. In my opinion the best piece is B1 "Past The Gates" (the tracklisting here is currently wrong). Contains well made experimental sounds... ... See full review

"Spontaneous lifeform"! Yes, that is one of these really good tracks from detroit for which I'm living for. Mostly ignored, but it has these special strenght and intensity deep inside. An eternal minimal acid classic for open minds, worth to check!
