About Me:
The vinyl habit started from catching the DJ bug early in the 1990s. I have used the same set of Technics SL-1200MK2 since. First, I was after UK Breakbeat Hardcore / Jungle and US underground house, and then down the rabbit hole I went. I stopped gigging in 2005/2006, records are now collecting dust! Through this bloody resource, I'm still learning/buying and wish I had the time to gig again, but alas that can't be a priority anymore... =)

I've tried to kick it, but it is still... Deep House & Techno 4 Life...

RE: Items for Sale
I'm not a shop, instead just a halfway recovering obsessive with a "robust" team of 1 counting me for this operation (i.e. no elves, i live and die on my own internal tracking, fulfillment, etc). I have been selling online off and on since 1999. Inventory for sale includes mostly house / tech - house / techno then disco, new wave and other repetitive beats being moved from my collection which is gradually paring down.

I travel for work periodically. I will try to post in advance when I will be on the road.

This is what turned me onto Adesse V.. These versions are so much different than the source material, this dub stepped out mix of Jack Master is out of control. Given that this is "unofficial" I'm wondering how long this will last in the marketplace~!

I picked this one up just for Glittertind. the keys and synth flutes make me think of Burrell brothers productions on NuGroove. This will definitely stay in my circulate pile. This cut makes me remember how much of a genius Todd Terje really is..

the Platano Maduro mix is dope.. something about the transitions not sounding precise, more like Greg Beato in the mix with the sequenced fades. love the dissonant keys towards the end.

as much as i am a fan of original Disco Juice version (though I was introduced to it by the Norman Cook cut up of it), i remember totally freaking out to this from some Bad Boy Bill mix circa Fall '95. chicago hard house remains a big guilty pleasure.

Pimp Factor.. This is my favorite Rick Wade cut up. I haven't identified the sample source, too lazy to track down, 70s or 80s synth guitar dreamin'. Picked this up back when it was released.
