Lessons In EBM

Collector, producer and DJ of electronic music of many styles, primarily techno, ambient, downtempo, progressive, psytrance, industrial, EBM and synthpop. Creator of the 10-part When Trance Was Good oldschool trance mix series and the ongoing Lessons In EBM mix series.

If I had to pick my "desert island" sound, it would be mid-90s techno/trance: Eat Static, System 7, Der Dritte Raum, Sven Väth, Sun Electric, Astralasia, Art of Trance, Hardfloor, Oliver Lieb, Freaky Chakra, Juno Reactor, Union Jack, Underworld and Banco de Gaia being some of my all-time inspirations. Though if I had to select one artist that has influenced me the most it would have to be Front 242.

(PS much of my collection hasn't been added to Discogs yet but I'm making progress)

Well it's Ishq's greatest release, because the tracks are memorable and standalone. Later, they would make seemingly endless sound collages that didn't really stand out from each other (still very good, though). But Orchid stayed with me for a long time. ... See full review

This is some of the most minimal techno I've ever heard - and not the "minimal tech house" kind of minimal that was popular in 2008 when this came out, but literal minimalism. As in hardly anything is happening and changes are few and far between. Listen ... See full review

To be fair, Sidereal is not simply repressing these, they are remastering them AND releasing double LP versions to go along with new CDs. The original CDs will remain very limited in quantity and should remain very desirable for the serious collectors. ... See full review
