Profile

I am a small collector of electronic dance CD's (artist albums, maxi singles, singles, label compilations, club compilations, ...) from Belgium. All CD's in my collection are for real. I do not collect vinyl records or digital downloads (MP3, FLAC, WAV, ...). I have a lot of my music in WAV-format to put on my iPod. Don't ask for sharing or upload WAV's. It's all about protecting the fragile music industry ...

With much respect to all the Belgian DJ's and producers from the late '80's & '90's:
