It is hard to absorb Andray's passing. He was unique in the Detroit style of electronic music, and always had a take on the sound that was his own. Loosing him is devastating for the music community IMHO. Thoughts go out to his family and friends. RIP brother. See full review

So, a bit of back story. I have been attempting to get more into the streaming thing rather than playing my self made recordings of my vinyl in my car. Driving back from Glasgow a couple of nights ago, wondering what I wanted to listen to, it came to... See full review

Another great release on M.A.P. Records. This one has a bit of an overcompressed sound, meaning the snares and vocals are sometimes a little unevenly ducked by the kicks, reminding me of an old cassette recording in some ways. Standout track for me is... See full review

Yeh, I have been wondering for years. Just listing to random funk on YouTube, and found it - "So Believe Dat" samples Heatwave's "The Groove Line"! I added a note to the release. Happy to have found it!

In my opinion one of the best of D.I.E's releases, this 6 track '97 EP is full of strong tracks. "Let Yo Body Rock" is the pinnacle for me, featuring classic D.I.E analog strings and electro bassline these guys do so well. None of the other tracks are... See full review

Peregoyo Y Su Combo Vacana* - Tropicalisimo
posted a review of Peregoyo Y Su Combo Vacana* - Tropicalisimo. over 13 years ago
A most excellent record that is much more than it's "Salsa" branding would lead us to believe. Traditional Columbian rhythms that are highly atypical of the salsa genre are married to a warm and dry sounding musical backdrop, with the unusual (for... See full review

Carcass - Reek Of Putrefaction
posted a review of Carcass - Reek Of Putrefaction. over 15 years ago
This record is a good example of when undesired production quality ends up adding something to the end result, at least for some people. Initially when this came out, I thought that the 'production' on it was intentional. However, after having a... See full review

If you only ever own one dub record (if you only ever HEAR one dub record) make it this one! All star cast of musicians headed by Augustus Pablo, with a who's who of the best 70's musicians from Jamaica. Add to this the DEEPEST EVER dubs from the... See full review

Originaly released in early 80's, features lots of nice heavy and spacey dub. A classic Prince Far I and Adrian Sherwood collaboration. Highly recomended.
Starski And Clutch - Triple Gold
posted a review of Starski And Clutch - Triple Gold. over 21 years ago
East To West is a classic track, uptempo Detroit party vibe. Triple Gold and Drive Through Jit are both very fast (170 bpm) ghettotech tunes, almost the fastest this stuff goes. Both strong tracks. Drive Through Jit is really simple, just drums and... See full review

posted a review of DJ Assault - Terror Tec E.P.. over 21 years ago
Includes the Ghettotech classic "Crank This Mother", usualy played out at +8. "Terror Tec" and "Techno Freak" are also great tracks, "Terror Tec" is a 4-on-the-floor track with a fat bassline and spooky "there's no turning back now" vocal sample,... See full review
Wafta - College Street Zoo
posted a review of Wafta - College Street Zoo. over 21 years ago
I heard that the guy who did this music had just split up from his girlfriend, and this stuff does have a slightly pissed off dark edge to it. While the sound quality and production isn't totally kicking (not bad though), I like the grungy quality to... See full review
