Why the full Carl Craig version isn't on vinyl is beyond me. Great classic remix from C2.

I agree with all of your comments here, a really special release, this one. A lot of disparate parts come together to create something very different on this album, and that's hard to do these days!

Awesome release. How can you possibly lose with these two together? It defies categorization for the most part -- it's got the top shelf production you'd expect, and the sound falls into an experimental jazz vibe with elements of techno and house ... See full review

Good 'ol Nape delivers yet again. Excellent album here. My only complaint is that it's way too short, but I know it was devised as a mix tape. Even still, these tracks are begging for more room to breathe -- you blink and it's over. Great stuff all ... See full review

Side F is pretty excellent. It starts off with an ambient jazzy vibe, then half way through it evolves into a noisy techno jam. Fantastic track.

Thank you so much for this info. I bought this record in 1992, and I have been trying to figure out where those samples come from ever since -- you've made my day!
posted a comment on Molly (15) - Waves. about 1 month ago

This is a great release. Molly brings it with the soulful deep techno vibes that we're accustomed to on Giegling, and the immaculate production makes the four tracks highly enjoyable with repeated listens. I'd argue it's the best Giegling release of ... See full review

Haha, yea, was thinking the same. He also bought Bob Dylan's "Blood On The Tracks" the day it came out, in 1999. ;)

Beautiful performances marred by a shameful vinyl pressing. Bad Seed really needs to get their shit together in terms of the way they press their records as they are consistently subpar. A lot of the problems lie with these stiff and hard cardboard ... See full review

I always thought the difference between these two tracks was almost comical, like they're by different artists. At the time, "Eclipse" sounded like a generic UK prog house tune that felt dated as soon as you were done listening to it. I remember ... See full review

For what it’s worth, the “Husmix” is the exact same as the “Gun Acid” mix on the “Standard Stuff For Drama” EP.

Legov dominates here per usual. He's simply one of the best electronic producers in the world today. "Cenote" is undoubtedly one of his finest works. This vinyl pressing isn't the best, but it's far from the worst -- I'd say it's pretty average. ... See full review

This is a humorous oddity that should be filed in the "Most Ill-Advised Remixes Ever" category. The Chip Watkins "Part 1" remix is hilariously bad, complete with a goofy, new age spoken-word intro, which is delivered by Watkins himself, I'm assuming. ... See full review

This record says to play the B-side at 33 RPM, but both sides should be played at 45 RPM -- you can tell by playing the record. The timing on the B-side is actually 7:02 when played correctly.

The "Minor Forms" track is begging for the DJ Sprinkles treatment. The Mora remixes are excellent in their own right. Highly recommended EP here.

Amen. Fehlmann is always showing everyone how it's done, young and old. It's funny how much better the Fehlmann-involved Orb albums are, too. The new Orb album has very little to do with Fehlmann, and it's nowhere near as good as "Moonbuilding", where ... See full review

Excellent compilation, really happy I picked this up. The vinyl pressing is top notch with each record coming in a poly-lined generic inner sleeve. Side note: the version of Holloware Squad's "Surface Intention" is an edited version here. The full ... See full review

This record was definitely released in 1993. I don't have any proof I can share other than my memory, So I thought I'd share what I know to be true here. For what it's worth, I was hammering this record in the clubs in the fall of '93, and have a ... See full review

Hype? I'm simply stating a fact. Good for you for receiving an undamaged copy.

Massive disappointment with the vinyl pressing. Got mine today, and all the sleeves are bent and the records are warped. The box that the records were housed in is fine, so it's clear Warp shipped these out without noticing or caring too much about the ... See full review

My copy is warped, too. This is just an all-around bad pressing, reminds me of a lot of those early 90s US indie house label pressings like Murk, where the music was great and the pressings were crap. The Naples remix here is awesome, not a fan of the ... See full review

Aha, I see. Thank you, I was left wondering! This is a rare instance where the re-press is worth more than the original.

Seriously. Who is he kidding? I give it another few weeks before someone is trying to get 1,000 dollars out of this.
posted a comment on Will Long - Royal Blue / Mustard. 8 months ago
It's clear that Long needs DJ Sprinkles to sound more interesting. These tracks aren't bad, but the minimal meandering is a bit tired for its own good. Bring in Terre for remix duties, then you've got something.

I wouldn't agree with this. I have the Audio Fidelity one, and it sounds exactly the same as this one. Just because an album is pressed on 180gm vinyl doesn't mean it will sound better. So many factors go into play with every pressing. Having said ... See full review
