Been a fan of electronic music since 2006, and find my preference lies with house/deep house, although I love techno, tech house, dub techno, others forms of electronic music etc etc. Also a huge fan of hip-hop, particularly on the production side of things. I like to collect DJ mixes too.

"Around" is an stunningly simple track worthy of a release all on it's own...bigs up MW!

B1 is an edit of John Klemmer's "Humbling Love", great stuff from Moomin!

Absolutely worth at least one listen. "Galaxy Garden" is about as organic as something digital can get, but boy does this record just feel.. alive! The rhythms and melodies might be a little off-putting at first, but there's a real pull in the sonic ... See full review

Full of pleasantly lucid, jangly pop music that's short, sweet, and to the point. Puts a smile on your face with every song.

Alan Fitzpatrick's best tune, techno of a wholly different nature.
posted a review of Michael Mayer - Immer 3. over 6 years ago
Immaculate track choice and smart, fluid transitioning makes this Immer just as good as the first. While the first Immer built momentum rather slowly, by the fourth track of Immer 3 we're deep in the mix. A lot more vocal pieces help to differentiate the ... See full review

Nice review, but don't belittle other people for their opinion of a mix. That's just stupid.
posted a comment on Ripperton - Leonor's Lanugo. over 6 years ago
I feel like people too often use the word 'deep' (I'm just as guilty) but 'Leonor's Lanugo' is all that and more; shadowy, an at once dense and warm soundscape..and the kick of all kicks to bolster the foundation. Not a lot happens, but a heck of a lot ... See full review

posted a review of Various - Workparty One. over 6 years ago
Keinemusik's first compilation rings true with some bouncy, groovy, and bassy house that does not disappoint. &ME and Adam Port both turn in excellent tracks, the former's a slower house sound pinned to hazy, stuttering vocals and a monster bassline, and ... See full review

Bounciest bassline I've heard in a minute..sleazy and rough around the edges, the B-side is absolute fire.

Massive track from three great producers, with a huge build, intimidatingly powerful break, and a gliding denouement..beautiful!!
posted a review of Guy J - Azimuth / Heliscope EP Remixes. over 6 years ago
Two stylistically separate but qualitatively superb remixes from Egbert and Tom Middleton, and a wonderful original in 'Azimuth'. You can't go wrong with this EP. Egbert's percussive techno stormer gets my pick of the three.
posted a review of Various - Cocoon Compilation L. over 6 years ago
The latest Cocoon comp is an improvement from last year in this listener's opinion. There's a housier feel to some of the tracks here (Visionquest, Tim Green, Rampa/Re.you) but there's an equal presence of techno, the type Cocoon champions (Mark Reeve, ... See full review
posted a comment on Two Armadillos - Hawthorne's Theme. over 6 years ago
The trademark groove of a Two Armadillos record is unmistakable, and Hawthorne's Theme follows as another great example of this. Chilled groove on the A-side, clubbier sounds on the Bee.
posted a review of Clipse - Hell Hath No Fury. over 6 years ago
A wonderful, thematic album from Virginia brothers Clipse, featuring some of the darkest (and best) Neptunes production to date. A sense of anxiety, paranoia, and anger pervades the album, and Clipse deliver some of their best material on tracks like ... See full review

posted a comment on Kollektiv Turmstrasse - Like The First Day EP. over 6 years ago
Some of the most emotive tech house around, full of restraint, patience, but not at all less enjoyable because of it. Relaxing, mellow tech house of the best sort.

One of my favorite early Great Stuff releases, A-side has a killer groove courtesy of Tresher and an exotic ambiance courtesy of Gerber.
posted a review of Solomun - Dance Baby. over 6 years ago
Not enough can be said for dance music that is plain old fun to dance to. That being said, there is no better reason to buy Solomun's debut album on his own Diynamic. It's fun, well-produced, and will put a smile on your face.

A-side is proper chill, and the B-side takes advantage of a lethal xylophone groove. Great stuff!

Some of the most beautiful techno productions I've ever heard...dense with detail, life, and energy! Can't decide which side I like more..but the journey of "Rainbow" probably edges the groove of "Mekong", but both are excellent. Can't wait to get my ... See full review

Freerange occupies a realm of deep house that is decidedly housier in sound, a sound that's rich in melody and a sense of just plain old fun, something deep house could use a bit more of these days. Why take yourself so seriously? The quality of the ... See full review

One of my favorite rap albums of 2011, more for the production than anything else. Squadda & Mondre are good enough as emcees, but the production here is what truly shines. Bass-heavy, reverb-injected beats that surround your ear space, punctuated by ... See full review

Happened upon Jessie Ware only because I'm a colossal fan of Julio Bashmore (who produced this and '110%') and I'm a huge fan. Great voice and original, unique production from Bashmore. Plan on getting the vinyl ASAP!

There is a reason this mix falls so high on a lot of best-of mix lists. Cassy brings many different styles into the fold, and not only does the mix feel like an Ostgut Ton mix, it also has Cassy's stamp on it. Most of all, though, the peak of the mix is ... See full review
