this is what you call a "One hit wonder" Dreams is such a marvellous track I don't understand why C.J. Dolan (is this his real name or is there maybe C.J. D[B]olan[d] behind) did only one hit.

he had the potential to become the best trance producder ... See full review

I bought this CD because I became very late aware of the talent of Klaus Schulze and I wanted to have a collection of most of his tracks. When you think of electronics in the 70's you always default to Kraftwerk. But this guy is the master of electronic ... See full review

One of the best UK acid house record. Master acidline and enchanting female vocals in the Acid in the House Mix, make your mind explode.
Also mastering is quite good a real Deconstruction work. The 303 sounds really mean like on of the Devilfish versions.

An Illusion is the track of this EP to be mentioned here. I remember this one played back in 1991 with hammering strobe lights and loads of nebula coming out of the machines. This track with its spiritual futuristic atmosphere is way to technoid for Nu ... See full review

I completely agree, Aurasfere is the best trance project I have ever seen. All tracks where so well produced and hypnotizing as nothing else before (O.K. Damon did a few good trance trax as well), why did he change to the louzy house producer he is now. ... See full review
posted a comment on Joey Beltram - Classics. over 10 years ago
Basically this is a compilation of the Beltram Vol.1 & Vol.2 series. Plus the Mentasm a and b-side.
However if you did not get them by that time buy this release. What is a bit neglected here is that track A2 and A4 coproduced by Per Martinsen (The ... See full review

poor you obviously you never heard that track in club those days. shure it's arrangement is not massive but compared to the time it was made way before 1990 it's acid line a effects are enormous. btw. it's a milestone of techno/house history we are ... See full review

Highly underrated progressive label, allthough r and s is the parent label. Maarten van der Vleuten did a really good job here. Most of the tracks are so wildly arranged they almost got a jazzy free flow character with elements from trance, detroit, ... See full review

I rememeber hearing Alcatraz or Happy Birthday in my car driving to hamburg and back I rewinded the tape again and again because of the indian vibe and the trance elements it gave me so much energy and helped me to stay awake. Also in the club it was a ... See full review

Fragements of reality is a real goa classic burner. Deep dissonant melancholic juno bassline and a standard 909 kick open hihat pattern plus a dark male voice offering you to change your life.
Runtime is 10 minutes approximately but does not get boring ... See full review
posted a review of Mantrax - Scarlet Circus. over 11 years ago
I have this record since it was released in my shelf and had written R&S whitelabel on it because there was no cover and no hint that this was a R&S release (no etches also only "White 003" engraved). The fact that I got it out from the R&S S folder in ... See full review
posted a review of Psyance - Motion. over 11 years ago
I believe this is the only record on Plus 8 which is featuring female vocal sample. Sounds like a tech-house record from Swayzak but that time they did not even exist. Classic detroitish handclaps and ride patterns give this song the reason to be ... See full review

This is one of Hypp and Krimsons most famous release. It was licensed by many labels and appeared one numerous compilations the time it was relased. Allthough it uses the quite dull "C and C Music Factory" guitar riff in the sound "Mitrax" it is a song ... See full review

I love this EP because every single track on it is made beautifull. Allthough "Sweep it up" is a little "Ultimo Imperio" by Atahualpa rip-off the record stands on it's own and manifests the belgium trance sound of the nineties. Not agressive in any way, ... See full review

It has been a long way of evolution for Marcos Salon from his 1991 techno house stomper "Vamp" to this highly progressive album. The sound fit's perfectly into the R&S sound of 1994. It is comparable to the album and sinlges of the acts "The Source ... See full review

The Attic is a.) a sign for the upcoming techno sound which was developed by Belgium, again putting more atmosphere into the previously developed sound called "New Beat"
b.) how a small track on an E.P can become so famous, it is really one of the ... See full review

Nobody has rated this record before? It's a shame. This masterpiece from Resistance D. may be considered as the track which made them become really famous. It's trance intro and pumping beats made it a real floorfiller in the nineties.
