posted a review of Jay Tripwire. over 11 years ago
Talented producer and an excellent DJ, a big contributer to the underground house scene. All his records are worth checking out, ranging from deep and trippy west coast style beats to more quirky electro influenced stuff. His releases on Jah Love are ... See full review
posted a review of Rulers Of The Deep - Nite:Life 019 - Tallinn Express. over 11 years ago
A real journey mix taking in west coast/ techy sounds, broken beats and jazzy flavours. The mixing is smooth, groove conscious and sometimes in key - the boys have obviously taken their time in perfecting their art. Pretty much all the music on here is ... See full review
posted a review of Taho - Iulia EP. over 11 years ago
One of my favorite techno records ever, Taho weaves detroit esque beats and beautiful haunting synth melodys that move the spirit. I was lucky enough to hear Claude Young drop 'Euphoria' faded into Rolando's 'Knight Of The Jaguar' at Fabric in room 2 a ... See full review

This showcases Slams very high standard of mixing as reflected in their DJ sets at Fabric; the momentum builds gradually, the mood changes subtley while maintaining a high degree of energy and interest. Disc 1 is generally more deep house, while the 2nd ... See full review

posted a review of Terry Francis - Architecture Volume 2. over 11 years ago
While some of the tracks here don't necessarily stand on their own - with fairly sparse instrumentation and subtle arrangements - within the context of the mix they act as textures/ layers that build the mood and rythmic momentum. Underground house ... See full review
posted a review of 4th Planet Side Steppers - Sunset On Reticulum 4. over 12 years ago
This is the first ever proper house record I bought way back in '95 from Swag Records in Croydon, after hearing the title track on Colin Favors legendary Kiss 100 show. 'Sunset' for me is the best on here, a 909 led mid tempo groove splashed with a deep ... See full review
posted a review of The Cinematic Orchestra - Every Day. over 12 years ago
The last track 'Every day' features a sample of a congalese choir from a 1958 album Missa Luba by Les Troubadours Du Roi Baudouin. What really spun me out is I found a copy of Missa Luba from a charity shop for 25p in 2001 and used the exact same track ... See full review
