This is quite a nice, chilled down version of (almost Kompakt style) minimal house. Maybe not an excellent record, but still a nice record to put on once in a while. In my opinion, the A side is better than the B side.
posted a review of Dasha Rush. 2 months ago
Honestly, I think Dasha needs some more of our special love and attention. She's been doing things her own way for years now, and whether you like it or not, that's something people should admire a bit more nowadays. The techno landscape has become more ... See full review

I truly believe that the real hidden gem on this release is A2, it has a lovely hypnotic, dreamy loop that is just begging for a dark techno kick underneath. If I had the original stems, I'd try to make a remix from this one right now. Superb little ... See full review

A2 is why you buy this release !!! Now please note I'm not trying to say the rest is shit, cause it most certainly isn't. But yeah, in all honesty... I mean... seriously, why didn't you buy this one yet?? ;)

This is an album I thought would end up on my "for sale" list for sure. Bought on an impulse...

People really should (re-)discover the A1, really lovely track with an excellent groove. And just when you think "ah, was that acid line really necessary", they bring the original gated pad groove back in and things fall perfectly back into place. Highly ... See full review

If you ever come across this box... do buy it. Not saying all of the tracks are totally worth it, but I remember using many B-sides of this box and incorporating them into my sets when I was still an active DJ. I'm preparing a new set for this evening ... See full review

Lovely little EP. This one certainly deserves more attention if you ask me... Be sure to check out the Subaske track!!

A1, A2 and of course B2 are wonderful tracks. Hidden gems which one should most certainly check out when given the chance !!!!
posted a review of Various - Informa Experiments Volume 2. 7 months ago
A1 is one of the very best Claudio Prc tracks I ever heard.
B1 on the other hand, is one of the most boring Deepbass tracks I ever heard.

I agree, the music is always the most important part, always. But this is Innervisions, and it's on vinyl, which is the most excellent format to make sure you back up the great music with excellent art work. Inner visions has some of the best artwork ... See full review

Anyone who needs to learn how to write a properly grooving track... they all need to listen to "System Index". If you don't start shaking your booty to that track, you might as well consider yourself a lost case indeed !!! ;)

posted a comment on Carl Craig - Sorry Carl But We Needed The Beats. about 1 year ago
Having a track like "Twilight" with, in my opinion, appropriate beats underneath, is a great thing. Looking at the title, I'm sure the people who made this bootleg were not out to rob mr Craig nor to be disrespectful towards him. I find it a shame that ... See full review

I agree 500% with mr Vogelsang here. I discovered this track years ago in some mix, and man, that Bastien Grine mix... When turned up loud, it's a total killer !!! Do check this hidden gem out, you will not be disappointed !

People need to know their classics, even if nowadays they don't remember some of them as classics.

I've bought all 3 parts new when they were released, but I could never be convinced to sell them. So yes, please, do consider a repress. It's such a timeless record, it totally deserves a new crowd to discover it for a fair price.

posted a review of Brian Eno With Daniel Lanois & Roger Eno - Apollo (Atmospheres & Soundtracks). over 3 years ago
No doubt this is one of the very best ambient albums ever made. The whole album is just pure dream away material, but of course the absolute star of this record is "An Ending (Ascent)". Music to make you cry, but in the best possible way... :)

"Isn't It A Pity" must be one of the very best covers Nina Simone ever did. It's totally worth getting this record just for this breathtakingly beautiful track alone. Perfect late night music for the melancholic mind.

"Theme From It's All Gone Pear Shaped" is an absolutely brilliant classic. And for those with ears : Aril Brikha's "Leaving Me" uses the exact same chords with an almost identical sound... Nonetheless, I love both tracks ! :)
