Mad Techno Head. Been big on Techno since 1989/1990. Still buying a lot of music but favourite period is 1990-1993. Can't beat it. Love Acid House, Frank De Wulf, Mundo Muzique, R & S. These days also like indie stuff Interpol, The Walkmen, Mogwai.

Techno with an old fashioned hook - Trippy - Original - Ethereal

A masterpiece! One of my favourite tracks to play out.

This track is a classic. It was around this time that rave culture was beginning to decline and the music media began to belittle the scene, hence the bad reviews in the press. The sample is perfect, the ravey stab sublime, and a bassline to die for. I ... See full review

No Robob is correct. I just put my copy on the turntable and it does as he says. The record is not bent! Never saw this before. I love weird stuff like that. Anyway The Basement Jaxx mix is brilliant, absolutely love this tune.

Lonely Friends is amazing. Interesting and original house music. A rarity these days! Looking forward to more releases from Hi & Saberhagen to see where they go next. Love this.

"Looking For Something That's Not There" is just great. Quirky trippy loveliness. I wish more people would make music as good as this. If you get a chance snap this up as it's going to be worth a fortune soon!

Terribly unimaginative body of work here from Scuba. Nothing original, captivating, or remotely likeable about any of the tracks. It's been done a million times before and much better than this god awful mess. I cannot put into words how bored I was ... See full review

I'm 99% certain that it's DJ Haus. He's released on Creme Organisation and this is a sub-label so pretty good guess. Especially if you listen to this release...http://www.discogs.com/DJ-Haus-Space-Jamz-Vol-1/release/5436391

Amazing tune! Never knew the name of it till I watched some footage from Shellys circa 92 and someone gave a tracklist on YouTube. Christmas Eve 2010 went into my local Oxfam record shop and there was the promo for 99 pence. Couldn't believe it! Cheapest ... See full review

Like A Tim is a genius. The best producer of Acid in 2007. Every recent release on his own Like Records imprint is a must have. I can purchase a release without having to listen to it. He is that GOOD. Not since early R & S releases could I say that ... See full review

The A Side track The Afterlife is an absolute belter. The best slice of Techno I have heard this side of the Millenium. Hypnotic Techno to the max combined with a vocal to die for from Paris The Black Fu. Very Druggy, very fucked up. The closest you will ... See full review

Love this record. Brilliant squelchy ACID. Like A Tim has released a lot of gems recently on his own label Like Records, and this is no exception.

The music here has a foundation in classic Acid 1988/1989 but is very forward thinking and with some ... See full review

The only track that gets pass marks here is "As The Bubble Expands". The rest is absolute dross. I admire Speedy J and like a lot of his output but this release is awful. You can't dance to it, it's too uncomfortable to listen to at home, and many of the ... See full review

The Carl Craig mix on this record is a little slice of HEAVEN. His finest remix in my opinion. A very musical tech-house affair, with a bassline to die for. Played by the likes of Laurent Garnier back in the day, this record is definitely worth tracking ... See full review

I love this record. First heard this at a rave in 1992. Damon Wild played a fabulous set and he began with this bad boy. The main track makes very good use of a classical track Carmina Burnana and is a breakbeat fuelled monster!

I didn't really dig a ... See full review

This is a great release. I made a trip down to Fat Cat Records in London from Glasgow in 1995 and picked up a few tunes and this was one of them. The journey was worth it!

I remember picking this up in 1992 and absolutely loved it. In Glasgow at the time most of the club nights played progressive or garage house which was boring me to tears.

What a fabulous piece of music. All 4 tracks are very strong hard pieces of techno music. However the main track Digeridoo is one hell of a ride.

A breakbeat fuelled hard techno stomper with an analogue digeridoo that morphs and mutates until the ... See full review

Probably my favourite release on R & S. Mundo Muzique was a visionary. This is an excellent track to sit at home and chill out to, as it has some very sweet synth lines, however it also is pretty upbeat and played in the right set could keep you dancing ... See full review

Version One is the druggiest dirtiest house/techno record of all time. Released in 1995 it still sounds the bomb 11 years on. Tremendous.

An absolute must if you are a DJ who likes the crossover from house to techno, as it has the drum programming of ... See full review

Excellent release. 1.1 is a rather fine piece of dubby metalic techno that still sounds fresh 10 years on. Unfortunately I have never heard it played out anywhere though that may have to do with the fact that its a little bit tricky to mix.

My jaw almost dropped to the floor when I heard the lead track "The Intersonic" at a house party in 1993. Such mad sounds! I wasn't able to pick up a copy of the Rugged Records version, and was absolutely deligheted when it was licensed to Music Man. A ... See full review
