This is IMHO the greatest UR record ever. Time Sensitive is truly one of those special pieces of music that makes you glad to be alive. Such beauty and emotion make this an absolute essential record for UR fans to have. The Los Hermanos mix is good and ... See full review

This is an incredible album from UR showcasing some of the finest releases from Galaxy 2 Galaxy, UR's band. Some of the tracks such as Nation 2 Nation and Body and Soul are from early releases but then there are new tracks such as Momma's Basement which ... See full review
posted a review of Underground Resistance - Sweat Electric. over 13 years ago
Just picked this up from a guy in the D who says there are 200 copies in existance. Cost me an absolute fortune but was worth every penny. Electro at its best for me.
posted a review of Dark Comedy - Funkfaker: Music Saves My Soul. over 13 years ago
This album for me sums up why Kenny is the greatest producer to come outta the D IMHO. Such beauty and emotion in every track make for a truly special listening experience. Kenny Larkin is pushing the boundaries of Detroit Techno into areas no other ... See full review
posted a review of Planetary Assault Systems - Archives. over 13 years ago
Booster and Twilight are great tracks but for me it has to be Gated. What a track. Classic dancefloor techno that will always get me boppin'. First came across this track through Dave Angel dj sets around 1993 and it took me an eternity to track it down. ... See full review
posted a review of Rhythm Controll - My House. over 13 years ago
My House to me is the epitome of house. The song just has so much emotion for me, maybe it's all the times I have heard the acappella played by DJ's over the top of some other random record. But for me the original cannot be topped. Cost me an absolute ... See full review
posted a review of Drexciya - Drexciya 2 - Bubble Metropolis. over 13 years ago
The standout track on Drexciya 2 has to be Bubble Metropolis. IMHO has to have one of the fattest basslines ever. The music allows you to picture yourself piloting you Lardozian crusier through the Drexciya underwater world speeding along the aquabahn. ... See full review
posted a review of Drexciya - Aquatic Invasion. over 13 years ago
Wavejumper is IMHO the best Drexciya track ever. I Just cannot get enough of this song. Totally haunting and dark. The intro sends shivers up my spine every time.

You must face the power of the black wave of Ladozia,
Before you can become a ... See full review
posted a review of Various - Best Of Electro Volume 1. over 14 years ago
No better place to start if you are not aware of the early electro scene. Classics aplenty from Newcleus, Cybotron (Juan Atkins), Davy DMX, Hashim & Man Parrish. Worth buying this comp alone for West Street Mob and the killer that is Breakin in Space. ... See full review
posted a review of Ultraviolet - I Wish That. over 14 years ago
Great record from Ultraviolet. A lot of people go for Kites which is a excellent track, with a real haunting vibe. But for me it is I Wish That. The vocal by Maria Nayler who later went on to work with Sasha, is astounding. This is a classic from 91 and ... See full review
posted a review of Flipped Out - Everybody Is Somebody (Remixes). over 14 years ago
Another classic from Flipped Out. Uses a Sample of a Helicopter halfway in the original version of this song that just sounds mental in a club. Then the song kicks back in with some huge alarm sounding synth stabs, then back to the beat. But the best is ... See full review
posted a review of M500* & 3MB - Jazz Is The Teacher. over 14 years ago
Jazz is the Teacher is a great tune but is totally in the shadow of Cosmic Courier. This song just pulsates with emotion creating a sweet sonic landscape that just has you floating along, and when the beat kicks in. BOOM!!!!!......

Perfection. ... See full review

Head straight for Mousse T's Funk 2000 Mix. Now here's a floorfiller if i've ever heard one. Ann has a voice to die for. Mousse T doesn't let her down with a top quality remix. It is hard to believe that he remixed this and later went on to produce Sex ... See full review
posted a review of Jeff Mills - Azuli Presents Jeff Mills - Choice - A Collection Of Classics. over 14 years ago
Mills shows his real eclectic side with this selection. From techno classics such as Blake Baxter's Sexuality to the jazz funk of Chas Jankel. Worth buying this comp alone for Jackie Moore & Deodato. A real turn up for the books from Jeff, you sometimes ... See full review
posted a review of Kenny Larkin - Metaphor. over 14 years ago
What an incredible album this is. Beautifully created by one of the most outstanding producer's to herald from the motor city. From the Intro to Amethyst this has to be one of the greatest albums to be produced in the 90's. The stand out track for me is ... See full review
posted a review of The Unabombers - Saturday Night Sunday Morning - An Electric Chair Execution. over 14 years ago
The Unabombers have done it again. What a classic. Something for everyone here. From dancefloor bombs such as T-Coy and Black Science Orchestra to top quality hip hop like Craig Mack. But for me the stand out track is Shola Ama. Never has a remix worked ... See full review
posted a review of DJ Spinbad - FabricLive. 14. over 14 years ago
For me this CD does not get going until the Mystikal Track. From there on in its full of party anthems that could rock any dancefloor. Stand outs for me include Sounds of Da Police, South Bronx, I got it Made and The Choice is Yours. A real quality mix ... See full review
posted a review of Derrick May - The Mayday Mix. over 14 years ago
Derrick May shows why he is one of the best DJ's in the world on this mix. The mix moves effortlessly from the house sounds of tracks like The Groove Essentials to techno classics like Alarms and Club MCM. All mixed to perfection by the man himself, ... See full review
posted a review of RPM - Food Of My De-Rhythm. over 14 years ago
Mo Wax at it's best for me. Supa beats, dirty bass and funky guitar what more could you want. Not forgetting the sax and quality scatching. Cracking production from R.P.M with some well choosen samples make for a throughly great song. Took me a long time ... See full review
posted a review of DJ Spen - The Midnight E.P. over 14 years ago
DJ Spen has shown what an under used instrument the saxaphone is in dance music with this production. The Sax at Midnight mix is top quality. Tight beats and a real understated bassline create a perfect build up for the sax. And when the sax eventually ... See full review
posted a review of 2020 Soundsystem - The Chase. over 14 years ago
What a desicion to release these 2 live gems from the 20:20 boys. Classic Moroder and Knuckles updated for the 21st century. All this done without using a sample. My favorite has to be YOUR LOVE with Diane Charlemagne doing an excellent job on main vocal ... See full review
posted a review of Flipped Out - Basstab / Love Bomb. over 14 years ago
Rob Tissera's mix of Love Bomb is a classic. Anyone who went to the ARK raves will recognise it straight away. Beautiful pianos and emotional vocals make for a hands in the air anthem.
posted a review of Dark Comedy - Funkfaker: Music Saves My Soul. over 14 years ago
Music Saves My Soul is an incredible song. Larkin has done it again creating a 12 bar blues techno track. With Kenny on vocal duties himself, he sounds like Howlin' Wolf or Robert Johnson singing the blues about his girl. Great guitar and bass make for a ... See full review
posted a review of Underground Resistance. over 14 years ago
UR is the greatest record label in the world. From the very first release to the latest one, the standard has been set to an almost unreachable level, that the majority of other labels find hard to live up to. For me UR is the epitome of Detroit. Whether ... See full review
posted a review of Paper Recordings. over 14 years ago
This is without doubt the greatest label to emerge from the UK for a very long time. It has something for everyone, from dancefloor anthems to downtempo grooves.
Some of the standout release have to be THE BOOK, OUR SUNSHINE SUITE and TRIO DE JANEIRO. ... See full review
posted a review of Fred Everything - Light Of Day Remix EP. over 14 years ago
Another crackin release from the 20:20 camp. Three quality
mixes to chose from, but the winner has to be Maurice Fulton. What an incredible start to a record. Beautiful synths and piano chords layered to perfection. All building up into an amazing song. ... See full review
posted a review of Acrid Abeyance - Bon Appétit. over 14 years ago
For me the track that does it is PACIFIC PACE. This is an absolute blinder. This double EP is worth it alone for this one track. Starts with the drums and then the 303's gradually fade in and creates a full on dancefloor monster. But for those that don't ... See full review
posted a review of Underground Resistance - Ma Ya Ya / Soul Power!. over 14 years ago
This release from UR is brilliant. But I have one problem with it. Soul Power just isn't long enough. I am going to have to buy another copy to extend the song out. Soul Power is a real turn up for the books from UR. Horn section, synths and beats, what ... See full review
posted a review of Eric B. & Rakim - Juice (Know The Ledge). over 14 years ago
This for me is the best Eric B & Rakim track by a country mile. From the moment the double bass kicks off in the song it's just an absolute explosion of sound with the best bassline in hip hop history in my opinion. It took me years to find this record, ... See full review

Strings is simply the greatest track ever. I can remember the first time I ever heard it, it changed my life. I just had to have one. From the moment the piano starts the song just oozes emotion. Then the synth stabs enter and all hell breaks loose. By ... See full review
posted a review of Redcell - Interim Outerim. over 14 years ago
Only bought this record as its worth a bit. I was going to sell it on but what a mistake that would have been. Interim is one of the most beautiful pieces of music i have ever heard. It is a very misleading track also. It begins with a real lush chords ... See full review
posted a review of The Martian - Cosmic Movement / Star Dancer. over 14 years ago
Cosmic Movement is a great tune that has a real sinister intro that creates a real cosmic feeling. This builds and builds til the kick comes in and then track turns into a full on dancefloor monster with a fat 303 bassline. But for me the real gem is ... See full review
