posted a comment on Jeff Mills - Live At The Liquid Room - Tokyo. 2 months ago
It would be useful to get verifiable evidence of this. There appears to be some confusion with a tape that was being sold around the same time with a different Mills mix of similar style, but which was a DJ bootleg tape rather than a different edition of ... See full review

posted a review of Morbid Angel - Blessed Are The Sick. over 9 years ago
Somewhat hyped up by Morbid Angel on their own website, this is nevertheless genuinely considered to be something of a classic in death metal history. I bought it shortly before making a sudden and swift transition from listening mostly to brutal guitar ... See full review
posted a review of Marrow. over 10 years ago
An artist with no discernible style, simply pouring his imagination into these limited CDr runs that he distributes largely by "stealth tactics" rather than any conventional means, his music is often harsh, noisy and difficult. At other times it makes me ... See full review
posted a review of Wicked Wipe - Rok Da House. over 10 years ago
The "Ian Pooley Mix" of "Rok Da House" is the track that Jeff Mills immortalised on his amazing "Live At The Liquid Room" mix CD of 1995. It's testament to Mills' abilities at the time to shock a crowd into disbelief with his rapid-fire, hectic mixing ... See full review
posted a review of Kenny Larkin - Art Of Dance Sampler. over 10 years ago
A disappointing release, this.

OK...so the version of "Track" was the harder to find 12" version, but in my opinion it's not a patch on the version that was squeezed on the end of side A of the "Azimuth" album. The floating bleeps that accompanied the ... See full review
posted a review of Monolake - Plumbicon Versions II . over 10 years ago
A fine pair of remixes here. The Rebreather version is a very spacious ambient interpretation of Monolake's original. That original was a jerky, mechanical sounding techno track that had an unusually (for Monolake) positive feel to it, almost even ... See full review
posted a review of Source - Source EP. over 10 years ago
A brilliant EP of early trance and acidic techno from arguably the finest of Sweden's techno producers, Robert Leiner.

I remember Colin Dale playing the B side track week after week on his now legendary Outer Limits show on London's Kiss FM in the ... See full review
posted a review of Bitstream. over 10 years ago
I became hooked on the Bitstream sound the first time I heard their amazing "Spatial Lobe" track on a DJ mix. It took some time to identify the artist and then track down all of their records as some of the early releases are very difficult to find these ... See full review
posted a review of Reload - A Collection Of Short Stories. over 10 years ago
This album still blows my mind 12 years after I bought it, upon hearing the wonderful "Le Soleil Et La Mer" on Colin Dale's Kiss FM radio show in 1993.

Everything about it, from the concepts to the artwork and ultimately the music, is so well thought ... See full review
posted a review of Quiet Daze - Viewing A Decade EP. over 10 years ago
Kind of Detroit techno by-numbers over the A-side of Herr Pinnekamp's Transmat release. I'm not too familiar with much of his work, and there is a lot of it, but what I've heard has varied widely in quality. Same here, then.

"November" is a typical ... See full review
posted a review of Psychick Warriors Ov Gaia - Obsidian (Organically Decomposed). over 11 years ago
I waited a long, loooong time for the opportunity to play the full length of this version of "Obsidian", and finally in 2005 I was able to comfortably do so when I played a warm up slot at a big party. It was the first record of the night, so it was the ... See full review
posted a review of Kraftwerk - The Telephone Call. over 11 years ago
One of the best Kraftwerk 12" releases in my opinion. You can hear Kevorkian really getting to work here, drawing out the duration of what are some of the deepest electro sections of any Kraftwerk tracks, with more overall depth and content to it than ... See full review
posted a review of Francisco - Ultimo. over 11 years ago
A superb track here from Francisco – neither house, techno or italo-disco, but a combination of all these sounds. A sci-fi trip that builds from a simple beginning through layers of floaty synths that grow, echo and weave. Subtle percussion and a ... See full review
posted a review of Marco Bernardi - Sigmunds Day Out. over 11 years ago
The last track, "FL0713" is suitably titled - it could be a part number for the robot you can hear chatting away in the track. It's not the best track on the release, but it's decent enough.

There's a fair monster of a track on the A-side in "Sigmunds ... See full review
posted a review of Salt Tank - Ease The Pressure. over 11 years ago
Two versions of the same track on the A-side, with some commonly used samples and a fairly grating female vocal sample. Pretty basic early UK ravey house, nothing special, not even if you are into that sort of thing.

Then to the B-side, first ... See full review

I'm glad in a way that I totally missed the boat when it comes to this track. I don't really go to parties where Intec records are played, or know anyone that would go within a hundred miles of anything that's been touched by Carl Cox or his "funky ... See full review

posted a review of Pornotanz - CySex. over 11 years ago
I only like one of the two tracks on this 12" - the Gate Edit remix, the original version being a less interesting affair that sounds nothing like its relative. My understanding of this track has developed over nearly 15 years. One of many tracks I ... See full review
posted a review of Techno-Animal* - Ghosts. over 11 years ago
This album was the first taste I had of Techno Animal, and indeed was the only thing I heard from them for a good 10 years at least. Although I'm a fan of all of their very varied repertoire, I still think it's their best release; one which combines the ... See full review
posted a review of Syzygy - Terminus. over 11 years ago
"Meditation" is the gem tucked away on this old Infonet EP. While both versions of "Terminus" are fairly standard (for the time) in-your-face techno with gated and filtered synths, "Meditation" is a much subtler, deeper, and better thought out ... See full review
posted a review of Nu-Tro-Gen - Rollin' Reptiles. over 11 years ago
"Rollin' Reptiles" was a favourite down at Knowledge, London's first weekly techno night, back in 1992/93. It's a simple affair, comprised largely of samples, but in terms of rocking dancefloor techno that makes you jump up and down rather than spazzing ... See full review

For many years the title track from this record sat on a tape recorded from Colin Dale's early 90s KissFM radio show. Highly revered by my friends and I and known only by its arbitrary and onomatopoeic title "the drainpipe track" - derived from the ... See full review

In 1998 I spent a week in Berlin staying at Markthalle in Mitte, a bar, restaurant and hostel run by Piers Headley and co-owned by Tresor founder Dimitri Hegemann. A very fine establishment it was too. Good beer, good food, decent if not luxurious ... See full review
posted a review of Insync vs Mysteron²* - Android Architect. over 11 years ago
A superb "unknown classic" on a label that is sadly underrated, this collection of tracks could only be bettered if another piece of vinyl had been added to include the extra tracks that featured on the CD version. Well, perhaps I can live without the ... See full review

I understand the significance of "Strings Of Life" in the history of dance music and techno, but despite having heard it in a myriad of contexts, and having heard several of my favourite DJs playing it, I've just never been able to bring myself to say I ... See full review

The following comment comes from Lee In Sync himself, on the music released on "Storm":

"There are only 4 instruments in the track - all Roland, 2 SH-101s, 1 TR-808 and 1 TR-909. There was no hardware sequencer either. Everything was synched using ... See full review
posted a review of Ifach. over 12 years ago
In terms of truly minimal techno, I think that only M-Plant stands up to Ifach in terms of consistency, innovation and quality. The label has a distinct sound, being mainly the product of a select few of the UK's finest - namely Peter Ford aka Baby Ford, ... See full review
