Collecting is creepy. Record collectors put each other down for their various fixations. Everybody is convinced that his way of collecting is superior. They look down on casual collectors, who are just accumulators - the kind who'll just pick up anything and let it pile up. - Robert Crumb

One of my primary theories as a junior high kid was that people who claimed to like every genre of music were liars and hypocrites; they lacked backbone. I never trusted open-minded people. - Chuck Klosterman

Night life - it ain't no good life, but it's my life. - Willie Nelson

Truly wasted at a rave, riding the crest of a high and beautiful wave. - Paul Waaktaar-Savoy

Lone has made some great tunes. He's also made a lot of jolly and overly busy carnival music that sounds like a sanitised version of rave; it's got all the right references, but none of the grit. This record unfortunately falls in the latter category,... See full review

"Thank God It's Friday!" was regularly played as the opening track on the weekly "Techno OD" radio show on Rainbow Radio here in Oslo (which incidentally was broadcast on Fridays). It's a pure 1992 rave track which comes complete with orchestra... See full review

No idea why the decided that the UK version should be a double 7" – the German original was a double 12". It's a pretty hare-brained release really; half the tracks are left out, and the others have been shortened by one or two minutes, probably... See full review

So it finally got repressed, 22 years after its original release. While it was ignored by a lot of people at the time (myself included), the wacky and strangely addictive "R U Married" has become a cult classic in recent years. It's one of those... See full review

The title is just about as cheeky as the cover version of Logic's "The Warning". It's respectfully done, but I'm not sure the world really needs it as it doesn't improve or add anything to the original track. (How could you, anyway?)

"Max" is widely considered a masterpiece, and rightly so - the ingenious use of a melody lifted from Paolo Conte's jazz piece of the same name creates a sublime and incredibly moving track and a fitting tribute to Italian producer Max_M, who passed... See full review

Once largely unknown outside the domain of the ardent deep house cognoscenti, there's now a renewed interest in the work of guys like Ray Castoldi (in no small part thanks to sites like discogs). His tunes are way too good to be left by the wayside,... See full review

The riff in "Fanta Guitar" sounds worryingly similar to Norwegian band deLillos' "Kokken Tor". Just thought I'd throw that in.

Weird ending to the D'Arcangelo remix, the left channel suddenly drops 8 db around the 3:30 mark. Probably wasn't deliberate, but you never know with those Italians... seems like it only occurs on the vinyl?

Anyway, serious classic electro business... See full review

"Somebody comes up to you and asks you, "you want drugs?" - what do you tell them? Drugs work!" A deep, trippy, bleepy techno classic and a hedonists' anthem from the minds of Klimek and Browse. Still sounds great two and a half decades on (which is... See full review

Steve Hurley's 1986 classic and UK chart-topper gets the Cologne treatment. The "Ambient Remix" is the best of the pack; lush soft-trance that elegantly weaves glistening synths around that somewhat over-familiar bassline and turns it into a much more... See full review

Decent, if severely dated rave EP from the Third Electric/Audiosex/Dr. Walker crew. The track "Wake Up" features a sample from Cheech & Chong's "Little Mary Elephant" skit, in which an exasperated substitute teacher screams her lungs out in an attempt... See full review

"Flange Stereo" is basically just a loop sampled from VDT's "The Rise" (Container Records, 1991) with added FX and percussion. Yet it's a perfect example in how to accomplish a lot with an extremely limited toolbox - and it's nearly 25 years old.... See full review

It's not the pressing. I've got this on CD and it's the same there. May have been recorded from a dodgy DAT.

Trance-oriented sublabel of Logic Records, run by Mark Spoon (RIP). The records were easily recognizable by their unusally large center labels. The sleeves were fitted with matching holes, too.

Most of the releases were frankly sub-par and sound a... See full review

Pounding Chicago-style drum tracks injected with a healthy dose of distorted industrial techno. "So What" is the chef-d'œuvre. It drills into your brain and stays there. Music to pour vodka on your sauna to.

An unusual release on Fax; it was their only 12" on coloured vinyl that I can recall, and I don't remember any other records on the the label that had three tracks on one side either. As for the music, the "Circuit" tracks are typical Namlook trance... See full review

"Transfer", such a frustrating tune. It has all the necessary elements to create a deep house classic, and could easily pass for an early 90's Italian production on Heartbeat or MBG. But it's too short! Why, why, why does it stop after less than 3... See full review

"Quxy" is a subtly designed and skillfully executed IDM/broken beat fusion of sorts that combines lush electronics, rattling & unconventional beats and a wobbly bassline to create a very unique sounding track. The John Tejada remix is a mellow d'n'b... See full review
