I like: (minimal) house, -tech house and -techno, drum & bass, breakbeat, jazz (not 'nu-jazz' or whatever it's called though), some classical, some flamenco, a bit of ska and some old school hip hop (like A Tribe Called Quest). Oh yes, and some dub, dubsteb and variations on this.

I dislike: Trance (with the exception of some great classics, such as Hale Bopp, Schöneberg and The Age of Love), anything with 'hard-' next to it; the same goes for 'jump-'. Also, R&B, 'latin' (referring to reggaeton and the likes) and rap. Really, almost everything that I did not name in my 'likes' section...

It took me quite a while to appreciate these mixes, but they're definitely good. What I do not understand is why they are published under the 'Tyrant' moniker, even though Lee Burridge does not take part in the mixing, as he did for the radio mix of ... See full review
posted a review of Melon (4) - Four Seasons Part 01. over 12 years ago
A very impressive first release. Heard Melon play 'Spring' about a year ago and was on the lookout ever since. Both Spring and Summer are beautifully worked out 'soundscapes', with very much understated beats, that are excellent to chill out to. By ... See full review
posted a review of Alex Smoke - Sci.Fi.Hi.Fi. _03. over 12 years ago
I think it's great to see that not every DJ feels the need to only mix the latest releases and Alex Smoke shows us here that the classics should be all but forgotten.

HOWEVER, I find that the mix completely lacks structure and flow, therewith wasting ... See full review
posted a review of Monoroom - Memory Inc. Part II. over 12 years ago
Where the original is an ok, although not at all original minimal electrohouse track (as are released by the dozens a day), Gui Boratto seems to be content with creating a kind of bootleg of 'Özgür Can's - 'With Shades of Grey' in which he splices the ... See full review

Although I think that as a dj, Ricardo is cool as hell, I keep wondering what he tries to do in his productions. Instead of keeping them to a usable and listenable length, every new release appears to get longer and more tedious. This one must be the ... See full review
posted a review of Carl Craig - Fabric 25. over 12 years ago
I find this a difficult cd to judge: track choice is excellent and original. As always, the mixing is flawless too. Overall it's a very funky and also chilled out cd to me. Which is exactly where I keep wondering: the voice-over thing that Carl Craig ... See full review
posted a review of James Ruskin - Further Design. over 12 years ago
"Time & Place" sounds like a remake from "Gamma Player" by Millsart so much that I actually thought there was a mistake in the tracklisting for Luke Slater's "Fear and Loathing" album.

That aside, this is one of those albums that proves that techno ... See full review
posted a review of Magda - She's A Dancing Machine. over 12 years ago
Following the line of Richie Hawtin's 'DE9: Transitions', Magda applies a similar formula, but opts for a higher degree of funkiness. Through the mixing technique that both these artists use, it really is possible to make something very cool out of ... See full review
posted a review of Sterac Electronics - Keep On Running. over 12 years ago
This record makes me wish I had Giorgio Moroder's "The Chase" in my record case. Both "Keep on Running" and "Destination Reached" are excellent mixing tools suitable for a variety of sets. I wouldn't keep them running on their own for too long though, as ... See full review
posted a review of André Galluzzi - Berghain 01. over 12 years ago
Although I very much liked the track choice, I found the mixing most uninteresting and quite frankly, boring. Having heard other mixes of Galluzzi, I had high expectations of this mix, especially after seeing the tracklist. A shame...
posted a review of Various - DJ Tom Harding @ Dance Valley. over 14 years ago
A sad waste of "The Spice", which was the primary reason I got this album; also, I was curious about the whole hardtrance thing (having a generally very negative opinion of the scene).

A wholly unimpressive cd with mixing limited to short fades, but ... See full review
posted a review of Josh Wink - United DJs Of America, Vol. 3: Philadelphia, PA. over 14 years ago
This mix is an embarrasingly uninspired and boring release coming from Josh Wink. I love both the Profound Sounds cd's, with their smooth combination of minimal, tech house & techno, but this disc has none of this.

Dull mixing and a not very ... See full review
posted a review of Sasha + John Digweed* - Northern Exposure: Expeditions. over 14 years ago
What a shame that this album was not released as a single cd, that being only cd 2! This cd is very solidly mixed with a constant drive & it has one of my alltime favorite tracks on it: Polarstern. Towards the end a bit trancey, but mostly deep ... See full review
posted a review of Billy Nasty - BN02. over 14 years ago
One of the few cd's that I think are comparable to Dave Clarke's World Service Electro Disc. Very cool track selection with none of that synth - pop that can sometimes annoy me in electro cd's (but can be great in others), but just deep basses & powerful ... See full review
posted a review of The Amalgamation Of Soundz - Fabric 12. over 14 years ago
Considering that this mix is not a straight up house mix, but more a mixture of laid back (let's not call it lounge ) tunes, breakbeats & yes, some 'deep' house too, I would have thought this cd would have been released in the Fabric Live series. ... See full review
posted a review of J Majik - FabricLive. 13. over 14 years ago
I very much agree with the previous comment about the quality of the cd; excellent mixing and a track selection that should look familiar to those who know even a little about the scene. That said, it just isn't my type of D&B; exactly that which makes ... See full review

Split personalities really do exist! I wish I'd never known that the producer of such a wicked track as "Control Freak" could at the same time be Eric Prydz, producer of what I think as one of the most annoying house tracks of the year: "Call on ... See full review

It's the Kanzleramt sound; brilliant label & Kowalski is definitely my favourite producer of all times!; Echoes -> Progress -> Response, each album a fantastic journey through sound and slicker & deeper each time too.

Absolutely right! Brilliant cd, with an electro-feel start, leading to some very slick melodious techno from Abe Duque & Heil and just pure stomping after this point. The longplaying style on the Taksi cd is not exactly my thing, but here too, ... See full review
