Started DJing in '86, went nuts for house after hearing Pump Up The Volume by MARRS in 1987. There, I said it :- )
Collecting electronic music ever since.

posted a review of Audion - Mouth To Mouth. 5 days ago
Mouth to mouth basically took Euphoryhtm's - Patrik (Space Teddy records) and polished it a bit.
First time I heard MtM I honestly thought it was a remix of it.
Surprised nobody mentioned this.

I prefer Patrik any day of the week.

Excellent Tonika debut with the Timewriter under one of his aliases.
Rhythmus 1 is a rather un-Jeremy-like banger that would tear any dance floor apart, even 25 years later, it has an infectious build-up without becoming cheesy.

The Funk doesn't do much for me, but the haunting is a mysterious deeply layered track with a soothing female sample that takes you to the Kuiper belt and beyond.

Yes, for 5000 dollars, which is utter BS. The $2400 sale was already BS, a fake in my opinion, so now apparently that's the base to sell any new ones that pop up? Nah. Sorry. I call BS. This is maybe a $600 record. $1000 stretching it like crazy.... See full review

As a vinyl collector and DS fan I have to say that sometimes these guys are frustrating as heck. Some stuff is only on digital, other only on cassette.

It's the "No sun no Shade" is a very famous sample from Art Of Noise (OPus 4), which in turn came from a poem by Thomas Hood.

Is it just me or does it seem like (at least for the early 90's releases) there were more stamped white label copies around than standard releases? It's crazy but probably 60 or 70% of my RH records are stamped white labels.

Yeah, blatant (and in my opinion lame commercial) rip-off and yes, TdT was circulating in late 92. Plenty of time for two producers in the know to copy it.
