How's the repress sound? I assume it's worth it, regardless - as originals go for too much.

Good looking out - on want list for ages. Major tings for '94 - you know the score. Buy the original but you pay more. Goes to bandcamp - walk out the door. Turn it up and they fill the floor.

Absolutel madness - especially for '93. O.1 and O.2 are killer acid gems - not of your regular ilk. This is pure Rephlex mindphuqy. D1 is a more stripped down dark acid cut with a screaming noise - proper. D2 is a more liquidy acid gem - for the X or... See full review

B1 Acid version is where it's at. Proper Acid/Hip-house/Piano House. Absolutely worthy, early Omar Santana action. Buy under 10 bucks and you'll have a fun record many don't have...or have forgotten about. Werk it in the mix and keep the dancefloor... See full review

Like Disco Elements Vol 1 - this is a very well rounded, bang-for-the-buck EP. Classic era Deep House at its finest. Proper chords - pads - and drum syncopation. Sensory elements - as opposed to the more Disco elements on the other EP. Holds it own... See full review

PLEASE REISSUE THE 2 EPS. PLEASE - the 2 Hangable records are amazing and are tragically expensive and should be available to those that want to spend and support the artist and label. Thanks. Long overdue.

Back to Hell mix - all U need. Sub bass madness and dark vibes over a great breakbeat. Detroit going in on this one. Turn some heads as this is loud and powerful.

My promo copy has an upside down gold embossed promo stamp on the back parallel and on top of the bar code. The front has a red/rectangular HYPE STICKER saying: Grammy Award Winning Composer Danny Elfman.

A pounding gabber/hardcore techno cut that samples Kraftwerk. This particular record copies several other records in the same vein - and even one with the same name. In the context of when it came out - it's a pretty fun, over-the-top boingy pounder.

I have to say, it's pretty amazing that this currently (on discogs in 2020) clocks in on 569 compilations! Wow!

An obscure tune with a Disco Not Disco vibe to it. And a little synth solo. Not a great song - but it is a fun oddity and does work on the dance floor when you have the right scenario.

Disco Rock - from 80 or 81 - on a HUGE disco label - a strange oddity. Kind of a novelty record - and not a bad (funny) video. I mean it's bad - but it's good. Snap this unknown EP for a cheap price and play it a few times.

Absolutely - their early raw material is still my favorite. At least Lego Feet and the bonus stuff was FINALLY reissued. This is overdue and they'd sell plenty.

Timeless classic at 138 bpm...also done at dnb tempo at 174 iirc. Uses a the high-pitched Star Trek noise - hence, the title. Never gets old - still play it.

B-side is a solid afterhours house jam (something Strictly Rhythm put out a lot of in the early 90s). Deep chords and piano and a classic Fonda Rae vocal sample. Worthy of the fair prices it goes for as of 2020. Buy it and play it.

Twin Hype - For Those Who Like To Groove groove workout/re-edit with added samples and stuff. Worthy, as that Twin Hype jam is the sh!t. Big ups to BONES! Flipside is the bomb - combines several cool classics like Age of Love and Orbital's Chime and a... See full review

An wonderful EP of pure Drexciya - an artist who often had tracks that were too short for some DJs but of course you could always buy doubles and mix your own extended version. Or make your own bootleg version. Otherwise - in and out and leave 'em... See full review

Proper breakbeat rap dance for the late 80s - using The Commodores' "Assembly Line" break. Rap vocals in the vein of uptempo rap at the time - written to be an uptempo dance/break dance tune - on a dance label (Fever Records) - not a serious rap tune.... See full review

Very PARADOX sounding drum programming - creating soundscapes with eerie background sounds. There's only a handful of artists that have properly pulled off this sound. I wish there was more. It's perfect formula - tearout jungle drums and moody... See full review

A pure WARP record. Harking back to 1990 WARP vibes imho. These tracks stand out as they are not what was happening in '94 - but timeless. All the tunes grow on you. Production is great - and hearing the vinyl loud in a warehouse will give people a... See full review

Great acid record. Both sides are absolutely worthy with the the A-side being the acid scorcher most picked it up for. But I was sold originally due to the also banging electro/acid gem on the flip. Holds up well today - buy it - if you can find it.

Disto Disco is a decent slow burner - the syncopation is very Detroit and has nice strings in the background and harmonic keys. It's a very good break-down cut in a set - subtle and solid. I found myself playing this more than expected over the years.

GREAT EP! Clandestine is a winner - great cut - with a gritty analog bass noise that commands attentions and leads this electro/break with serious urgency. Raw Entrance is a subtle dark electro groover with a Reese-style bassline. The Warg is very... See full review

Picked it up only a couple years ago - I like it more now than I may have when it originally dropped. It has it's own vibe and it stands out as a 1-of-a-kind little gem - it's vintage '92 no matter how you slice it and it's pure old skool. Not the... See full review

Great EP - all cuts worthy in their own way. Think 91 - not 92 - this was top shelf when it came out - but lesser known and serious bang for the buck as of March 2020. Screamer is a breakbeat hardcore with female wailing vococals. The Laws Of Motion's... See full review

What an EP for 1990. Serious bang for the buck and extremely diverse tunes. The very Detroit sounding Orbit is my fave. Eye of the Storm is thick and layered and crazy good. Predator takes "bleep" in another direction. Buy it. Play it.
