Besides electronic music, I'm a big fan of roots reggae

I don't see what the fuss is about this record. So there are some slow jazz drums, so what? That's about the only thing added to the tracks. Every second of the originals are breathtakingly beautiful, and while I do think that the feel of this record is ... See full review

If you were playing the misunderstood, silent, Herculean hero character in a video game, set in a Frank Miller-esque background (think "Batman: The Dark Knight Returns", "Sin City", "Daredevil"), and you were about to do final battle against ... See full review
posted a review of Jimmy J & Cru-L-T / Alk-E-D - Remix Records & Kniteforce Present 'The Remix's' Part 7. over 14 years ago
I don't know why, but <i>Let's Go</i> always reminds me more of the theme from <i>Hill Street Blues</i> than the the tune it's actually based on; <i>I Wanna Dance With Somebody</i>, which was written by George Merrill and Shannon Rubicam. It's a great ... See full review

A tribute to all things bunny. "Rabbit To Rabbit" samples "Tales Of Beatrix Potter" (1971), a screen adaptation of Beatrix Potter's book about "Peter Rabbit" from 1902. The track also features the famous "I'm hunting wabbits" sample sung by Elmer Fudd in ... See full review
posted a review of Jimmy J Recordings. over 14 years ago
Not really a label, but more of an outlet for Jim Foster (<i>Jimmy J</i>) to release stuff he thought had potential - starting with what became one of the biggest tunes in happy hardcore history; a remix of <i>Nena</i>'s 80's smash-hit "99 Red Balloons". ... See full review
posted a review of Alk-E-D - Shine On Me / Shining Bright. over 15 years ago
<i>Shine On Me</i> is absolutely amazing. It starts off in the land of dub, takes on some ska-vibes - which evolves into breakbeat. Then you have the vocals running on half-speed straight through, while the beats continues at about 170 BPM. Amazing.

<i>It's A Shame</i>, sans rap, was originally recorded by The Spinners in 1970 - written by Stevie Wonder, Syreeta Wright and Lee Garrett - and released on The Spinners' <i>2nd Time Around</i> album.
posted a review of t.A.T.u.. over 15 years ago
The remixes are terrible too. Not because they're badly done, but because they've used the english spoken versions of the tracks. I'm not claiming to be and expert, especially since it's not my native language. But face it, if t.A.T.u. knew english, ... See full review
posted a review of Styles* - Over & Over / Do You Feel The Same. over 15 years ago
I wouldn't categorize this as happy hardcore at all, and definitely not hardcore. It's euro - very bad euro - with a large twist of <i>poptrance</i>. Although I usually like cheesy stuff, this one left me in a tank of liquid nitrogen. Think of it as the ... See full review
posted a review of Cash Money And Marvelous* - Find An Ugly Woman / The Mighty Hard Rocker. over 15 years ago
The basics of the lyrics for <i>Find An Ugly Woman</i> is from Jimmy Soul's 1963 caribbean/ska-influenced Billboard-hit <i>If You Wanna Be Happy</i> - "<i>If you wanna be happy for the rest of your life, never make a pretty woman your wife, so for my ... See full review

Mylo's remix is the dancefloor stomper - Linus' is the bedroom romper. While Linus plays around with the samples a lot and puts it on a more progressive beat, Mylo delivers a sure shot hi-nrg tune - much in the stylings of Thomas Bangalter. So if you ... See full review

posted a review of Starsplash - Free. over 15 years ago
Uncannily similar to "My Little Fantasy" (PENGO 014) by 4 Tune Fairytales, released back in '96. Although "Free" has different lyrics, it's very much the same melody.
posted a review of Master Blaster - How Old R U. over 15 years ago
Another really poor cover by Master Blaster. The original was done by Miko Mission (released as "How Old Are You") back in 1984. "How Old R U" is basically the same tune as Master Blaster's previous release "Hypnotic Tango", but with the "How Old Are ... See full review

Even though Chris Howell (Cru-L-T) says; "I hate this song, and I have nothing more to say about it", this is my favourite of all releases on the Kniteforce label, next to KF045, of course :) Agreed, the lyrics probably won't appear in Songwriter's ... See full review
posted a review of Master Blaster - Hypnotic Tango. over 15 years ago
Not a very good tune; you get tired of it all too quickly. Instead of some lame dance-wannabe-trance track, which are all too popular these days, the producers should have put the vocals on a happy hardcore track; at least then they would have made sense.
