This is my favorite DJ mix of all time, ever. On a technical level it's a little repetitive, the EQing could be better, the mixes aren't amazingly smooth... but who cares? This CD is all about the groove, and the Chems don't let the feel of the mix down. ... See full review
posted a review of Andy Moor - Fake Awake. over 10 years ago
This track, a recent pick p for me, is one of the best tracks released, possibly ever, on the Anjunabeats label. The Ecomix is a beautiful, yet somewhat hard track, fusing elements of trance, electro, and house into a wonderful package.

I picked up this record not knowing that the label was ran by one of my favorite DJs, James Zabiela. I simply found it in the dollar bin and picked it up.

Side B is the winner here; BT (as usual) delivers an ... See full review

The A side (James Zabiela's Dakota Bar Slam) is phenomenal. 10+ minutes of slamming bass, wonderfully layered scratching ... See full review

Being a total Bedrock junkie, i picked up this record in the $2 bin, brought it home, and threw it on the wheel of steel.

Side A (the original mix) is a fairly average (maybe below-average?) house track with vocals, strings, and an ok bassline... ... See full review
posted a review of Various - Y3K → Deep Progressive Breaks EP3. over 11 years ago
I picked up this record because I'm a big Digweed fan, and i immediately fell in love with both sides. The A side gets a sick, sub-frequency bass that shakes the walls of my apartment whenever I play it - massive props to FreQ Nasty & Blim for the remix ... See full review
