addicted-to-music collector & dealer, dj & musician. my physical shop is here: www.riseikel.de
my vinyls / cds / tapes are described in a "conservative grading" way to avoid disappointment. if i see scratches, i put the record / cd on and listen to it. so, if i say 'unhearable', it should be correct.
i don't sell any record / cd with hearable damage like cd-jumping or ugly loud vinyl cracks (except when explicitly indicated and described). there is a limit to 'lagerfeuer' (campfire-crackling), no crack-per-round! i don't sell crap - i put it in the garbage (so the record / cd gets rare :-))
please feel free to ask any question.

I saw the movie first in the late 80s and I always loved the soundtrack. Very strange, very electronic, with great melodies and some really intense pearls. The sound was state of the art at that time (Fairlight!). In cinema and on the 80s LPs the... See full review

This compilation is fantastic! In 1994 it marks the end of techno as we new it. Most tracks are very fast, some close to gabba, acid everywhere, straight marching germans ;-) I danced like mad to Frames 'Trance Tip' in the club, I still dance to it... See full review

Sounds a bit oldschool today, regarding the 90s drum-sounds. Both tracks are long builders. Best comes after two minutes. And takes you off for the next 6 minutes. Very typical intense trance. Extremely dancable, like most Koxbox tracks.

Fine compilation ! ! ! I luuf it! Most tracks celebrate some free clever cool house, using all kinds of sound samples. 7/8*s. One boring (C1) BUT one masterpiece (D1): Lucio Aquilina - Chemin, a simple techno tune that turns into a sonic sound... See full review

A fine little perl of two Plan tracks from their CD Verschwörung 2004. Well produced, full vinyl bass, nearly hiphop.
Lyrics (german) are rather dark and apocalyptic: "Morgen werden wir weggefegt."

Very very fine compilation! From deep house to excellent drum'n'bass and back. The time of the Headz. 10 of the 12 tracks have a calm unique intensity, whether slow or fast. The use of strange sounds+samples (pianos) helps the rather dark mood to... See full review

Very fine oldschool remixes, all straight, funky, long and mighty. If ever in Berlin, you maybe find a copy in my shop.

Oldschool Bootz: OK but a bit boring. Surely a fine tool for mixing parts into a longer set. Get it while it's cheap ;-)

Thanks to Bureau B for this reissue of legendary NR album. Between all chairs, typical 80s sax, new wave goes free jazz.

Both Unravelled 12"s are great. In this case IDM (Intelligent Dance Music) makes sense. Interesting sounds and samples over rather cold mashines. You got to be an intelligent listener to like this....

Acid techno classic by Mr. Mills (Collectors Item :-). Gets a bit boring at the end, but the first 4 minutes are a great UR dance track. I freaked out to that in the Tresor at that time. Play loud! I also like this story about the german U-Boat. Check... See full review

Strike of a genius! If you like the original you will love this. Not the commercial remix, more the basic roughcut. Don't believe the acapella hype, they use more than their voices.

A very fine compilation of cover versions! Most of the tracks are great or at least interesting. Some bands keep close to the original, some tranfer the original into their sound. Real pearls: The Fall, Jesus Jones, Bob Geldof, Marc Almond, Inspiral... See full review

For the feedtime fan: A-side is a heavy slow noise groove, like the Cows. B-side is the wellknown great tribal noiserock with fantastic bad singing :-)

Great album!!! Funky downtempo grooves pushed by intense ambient sounds. Angels are caught in the air-con, while trancy echoes build the next space. No chillout, suspence. Get the 2xLP while it's cheap ;-)

What a fine 12" !!!!
A1 Ramdance grooves in a midtempo and gets more intense every minute of the 10 minutes. Reggae-like vocal samples fit in well.

It's a repress of the same year. Could be called 'Second Pressing' like they do regarding the Residents releases. But who cares?

Totally underrated, indeed! From phunky future jazz to jungle and back. Always clever and interesting, sometimes incredibly grooving. 'Abstract' means that some tracks are more a sound-collage than a 4/4 track. As a german I don't really understand... See full review

Team Doyobi surely played in the highest league of mad IDM artists. Even more crazy than Autechre etc. Get the LPs and than check the 12"s. A neverending stream of sounds, loosely connected and arranged by plastic intelligence. For the headstrong ;-)

Most tracks sound very oldschool D'n'B in 2020 and some parts are really too long, loop-di-loop, but if you can pitch them, the dubs at 45rpm, you get a fine album of modern grooves.

I am sooo sorry, I think, there will never be a 3x12" vinyl version of this fantastic compilation of 1996 downtempo. Like Vol.1 and Vol.3 it gathers a wide range of spacy eclectronics and cool grooves. Vibert + Headz ++
