Three years after and I'm writting again about this album...

Now I discover that the song Ruin in to everything that closes the album has a sample, or at leass a sequence so similar (principally on the beginning), to the Yello classic song: "The ... See full review
posted a review of The KLF. over 10 years ago
The KLF was an incredible project that has a big place in the electronic music history. They are (along with The Orb, ask Cauty) the fathers of the atmospheric house or something like trance-dub; a kind of music that explore slow beats in combination ... See full review
posted a review of Various - 313 Detroit. over 10 years ago
"Distance" is one of that great tracks that helps to understand how was the development of the techno sound and how it moves from "dance" to the "bleep".
Here, two of the greatest techno producers: Juan Atkins and Martin Bonds (Aux 88, Alien FM) comes ... See full review
posted a review of John Foxx & Louis Gordon - The Pleasures Of Electricity. over 10 years ago
Even I'm a big fan of Johh Foxx, and I like a lot his works since the 80's and then more electronic sound since the mid-nighties with Louis Gordon, this album is too poor.

I mean, It has a lot of good sounds and rythms so representatives of the ... See full review

This is a perfect example of the early techno, the days when techno and electro comes together. Detroit Techno and Miami Bass? That oscure rythms: funky, dirty, warm, fun, and colorfull. Hard bass, repetitive sampled voices, little dust, boing! boing! ... See full review

Like in the drawing you are always making exercises to practice, increase your technique and definy your own way. That's the vibe of this album, like some sketches from one of the techno pioneer's, nothing really new or amazing, but good exercises. ... See full review
posted a review of Alexander Kowalski - Progress. over 12 years ago
This album is not the best work of Kowalski. It has some good things, and by moments it brights, but almost all the album is slow, so repetitive and boring; it falls in common place and sounds so conventional, like any other techno album.

It has a lot ... See full review
posted a review of James Chance & The Contortions - Buy. over 12 years ago
It combines the sounds of melodic and treble piano, the amazing rhythm of funky bass, the strident power of sax in free jazz with the rough voice of punk. One of the most exciting albums of James Chance & The Contortions that shows what was the pulse in ... See full review
posted a review of Kerosene - Teenage Secret. over 12 years ago
A great mix of future jazz, idm and melodyk sounds... it has fantastic clean but also dirty landscapes with a lot of layers and experimental sounds.

Is one of the best albums to understand the development of future IDM sounds in the middle of 90's... ... See full review
posted a review of Death In Vegas - Scorpio Rising. over 12 years ago
The track 3 is a perfect way to sample a pair of melodyk sounds to build a great track. The start with the sample of Telex is fantastic base for a song that is growing with Tortoise; and finally with that robogirl voice and ... your hands on her throat !!

Faster, better, and stronger ! That's one of the greatest ways that idm can follow in the future. A way where everything is sampled and mixed, from rock, country and lounge, to glitch and noise: a strange, fantastic and colorfull mix with madness speed, ... See full review
posted a review of Iñaqui Marín - Klinischtod. over 13 years ago
The new labels look for new sounds, trying to refresh the generes and the scene. This is the point of Regular and Iñaki Marin. He takes the progressive trance sound to make the base and develops to the next level, adding a lot of digital-glitchy sounds ... See full review

After almost 8 years, this album still sounds incredibleee !! Bass, unconventional loops, a lot of robo-sounds, atari sounds. It's pure science ficition made with electro and IDM. By moments it sounds like Aphex Twin and his alias Powr Pill in the ... See full review
posted a review of Various - Intergalactic Beats. over 13 years ago
This sounds are like a proto IDM. They are still with a lot of trance, techno and ambient sounds, but with more exploration. The sequences are simple and a little experimental, but the firsts steps to unconventional sequencing and proccesing are done.
