Why the sales ban on Discogs, does anyone know the reason?
posted a comment on Various - Torque. 6 months ago
I agree, I feel Torque was really the peak of what was being called 'Techstep' - it sounded genuinely futuristic and thrilling, but 98-00, the rhythm and atmosphere was gone, plodding two step beats, and two-note mid-range basslines that had more in... See full review

The miming story was featured in a Drum And Bass Arena forum post, in which Mistabishi personally responded. It was his response that also sealed his downfall - basically 'who cares, they're all on drugs anyway'. The explicitly racist remarks that he... See full review

Beware if buying from Amazon or someone similar - this shares the same barcode as VA - 100 Love Songs - I ended up with two copies before I got the CD I wanted. Highly recommended BTW.
posted a comment on Teengirl Fantasy - Tracer. about 1 year ago
Agreed - the tune itself is alright, but the 'party tonight, feel alright' vocals sounds like some horrible Swedish House Mafia leftover.

'Acid Rock' was used in an 1989 promo vid for the new Cherry Moon Club in Lokeren, Belgium, featuring a lip-sync performance by three macho dudes in bandanas that appear to have stepped in off Streets Of Rage. It's become a bit of a YouTube classic,... See full review

Is this an alias for Orca? It sounds quite similar and has references to whales.

posted a comment on Marcus Intalex. over 4 years ago
Whatever his age, he was still on point, and showed no signs of slipping in both his productivity and quality, and has left behind an untouchable back catalogue and reputation with those that enjoyed his music and those who knew him personally.

Of all the remixes, the Uncle 22 remix on this release is the weakest. I far prefer the original on Pure Energy.

I picked up a mint copy for a quid in one of the Vinyl Exchange stores in London - I had a shock when I was offered 50 for my copy and quickly sold it. Judging by recent prices that buyer got a bargain.

A pioneering tune by all means, but there is a MAJOR resemblance between this and Telex - Moskow Diskow that was released two years earlier.

I've never had a problem with represses, and I spent a fortune myself getting the originals. Obviously not everything can be repressed, but it's a shame that those who would love to own the music are shut out because they can't afford the collector's... See full review

You'll have to track down one of the first press and then pick the sticker off to find out!! I used to walk past his house on the way to college and I'd see a flash car parked outside and the curtains drawn, no sign of Roni!
