I Must Feel Better (Rock Version) is one of those cheeseball tracks which will work at the right place, right time and for me that was in the backroom of the Electric Chair when Baldelli dropped this and 100 or so people went completely bananas and ... See full review

I was lukewarm on this release when it came out but many years later and my older ears are very much appreciating the ballyearic vibes on Essra (Instrumental).

B5 - 上を向いて歩こう (I Look Up As I Walk) is a beautiful cover of Kyu Sakamoto's smash hit single from 1961 that went on to be covered by many artists around the world. Kenny Ball and his Jazz Men did an instrumental in 1963 (erroneously re-titled Sukiyaki, a ... See full review

Jam (Get Off) samples the vocal refrain from Funkadelic - Get Off Your Ass And Jam. This is interesting for the true Maurice Fulton nerds because in his RBMA video he tells Gerd Janson that Sticky People - Kong (1994) is the only time he ever used a ... See full review

Interesting, I think this unreleased version is better than the two versions on the 12'', though I haven't heard the Hold Me Up (Temple Mix) on the It's A DJ Thing 3 compilation...

Would appreciate if anyone could divulge if The Fall (Maurice Fulton Alt Remix) is different to the remix on the 12''

There is a video on YouTube called '1999 - Subway Silver - Hold Me Up (Maurice Fulton's Club-Jazz Vocal) [Influence / Defender Music]' which appears to be an unreleased mix of this track. I can't find any other info on this anywhere online.

Was only aware of this group via their inclusion on DJ Spinna's Life:Styles compilation and had definitely heard The Plan before (on a Theo Parrish mix and possibly elsewhere). Anyway, I'm glad to have rediscovered them as their output is tight and they ... See full review

Slavery is the one here; off the wall electro acid toast. Track is anchored throughout with the deepest 808 kick, unpredictable snare rushes and distorted rimshots and boops, and a lovely lovely acid squelch that gets more intense as the track builds and ... See full review

I've no idea, users with moderator powers presumably. Wondering if the fact my comment was not very complimentary to the record had anything to do with it :-/

D. Tiffany and her many projects and collaborations are incredible. Some of the stuff on SUED has a similar vibe to this. Also shout out to First Cut, a label from my hometown that has put out very nice stuff with this vibe very recently. Check out ... See full review

I agree Emotinium is very special and I'm happy to own a copy, but I don't think ROTR has done anything else that comes close to this track. I find the qualities that make Emotinium (melody, harmony, 'dreaminess' etc) largely absent from his other ... See full review

Cocomo is a high point for Aaron FIT Siegel and a special track for me. According to a YouTube comment, DJ Fettburger dropped the beatless version during his early hours set at Dekmantel 2015. I wasn't there but I was in the Amsterdamse Bos that weekend, ... See full review

Comments below are accurate. This release might have benefited from a couple of b-side tracks but Fusion (Broadcast Mix) is worth the price alone.

In agreement with the previous comments; Erot's is another of his incredible disco / boogie remix productions, dense with samples and layers upon layers of crazy echo & delay, that still sounds fresher than most of the garbage that gets pushed today. The ... See full review

posted a comment on T La Rock - Flow With The New Style. about 1 year ago
Absolute banger of a record; sampling the unmistakable bassline from Newcleus' Automan is a good start, slick production and beats on top, plus T La Rock sounding cool as fuck on the mic. I only heard this for the first time recently on an old Actress DJ ... See full review

posted a review of Legowelt - Anaconda Flow . about 1 year ago
Evaporate With Me 2 Infinity is the one. All the usual Legowelt attributes are in place; nothing ground breaking but that bassline with the mental, low frequency oscillation must be absolutely devastating to hear on a big sound system.

Much maligned on release, this now seems to be somewhat sought after. I always thought the beat was pretty funky, and while the vocals may tend to annoy, the hate directed at this release was a little overwrought. Apparently there is little room for ... See full review

Apparently a big record when it came out, especially on the UK jazz funk scene (check the many nostalgic comments on the YouTube video, uploaded by David Bendeth himself), Feel The Real is dominated by a seriously snappy bassline and a steady four on the ... See full review

Without doubt the absolute best sampling of Etta James' Something's Gotta Hold On Me. Achingly beautiful pads, laid back breakbeat, classic house piano, later some dirty organ stabs, with James' uncanny voice as the through line. Soft landing in the form ... See full review

Can't help but agree. Amazing collaboration, and the design looks hot but the price is outrageous. This is a series of four 12 inches which I'm assuming will be priced similarly, that's upwards of 80 euro for 4 singles!

It's definitely not one for the club. Just out of curiosity, do you feel the same about stuff by guys like Philip Glass, Steve Reich or Terry Riley? Feel like this artist was going for something similar to them with Tarahumara. I quite like it myself, ... See full review

I would agree, Orchestra Hall seems to have gotten lost in Parrish's massive discography. It's a phenomenal piece of music, definitely up there as one his finer moments in my opinion.
