What a dissapointment next to louie Vega's unmixed comp with such rare tracks as 'Stand On The Word'. No such luck here! Although there technically isn't a bad track on this it is all so predictable and the tracks are lagely available many times over ... See full review
posted a review of La Roux - Sidetracked. over 8 years ago
This is mixed!!!!???!! Who does she think she is? Is she a DJ - No! Why not at least include an unmixed disc like the last sidetracked. Mixes, especially ones like this have a very limited shelf-life. Poor indeed! This is making a return journey to ... See full review

Great work from the Horse Meat Disco boys! This time we're staight into the groove, with nothing to compete with THAT answerphone message into on Vol 1. An hour plus of rare, but accessable Disco; big vocal tracks and plenty of NYC style and energy. ... See full review
posted a comment on Various - Original Hits - 80s 12". over 8 years ago
Track 1 on CD 1 Don't You Want Me is much later remix, probably from a 90s/00's reissue, not the 12" mix from 1981.
posted a review of Various - Mastercuts House Classics. over 8 years ago
Mastercuts aren't what they were since they've been taken over. Now the name is used by Apace Music as an outlet for budget music compilations, and those tracks in short edits, high quantity and variable good vs filler = cheapo specials. This is ... See full review

I bought this at 16 in 1983. This was the first record I had by them because I had thought them a group for gays and girls (no bad actually). I fell in love with this 12" single and this group from then on! Having vaguely heard this I was attracted to ... See full review

It was the mix that was re-recorded from WAV sources, not the tracks themselves. The original was mixed from vinyl, this from the same tracks on WAV. This is one of the greatest House mixes ever though and this reissue is completely essential for anyone ... See full review

City Living by Linda Williams is good enough reason to want this new series starter from Jazz FM. It's the first time released on CD for this dancefloor destroyer! More goodies such as 'This Time Baby' from Jackie Moore in its 7:15 glory. Kleeer 'Open ... See full review
posted a comment on Martin Rev - Strangeworld. over 8 years ago
Martin Rev's 50's-like melodic minimal duplex epics in Strangeworld wouldn't sound out-of-place in a David Lynch film. Whether it's the boiling beats of Splinters or the surfer groove on Trouble there are fascinating gems here. The drum machine on Chalky ... See full review

I love Larry and I love vinyl. Problem here as I see it is WHY put out a DJ mix over 12 sides of vinyl? Wouldn't a 2 or 3 disc CD version - without all those breaks in the sets be more apropriate to the content? I'm sure these are lovely, but I'd be ... See full review
posted a review of Scott Taylor (2) - Don't Turn Your Back On Me. over 10 years ago
The mixes from Deep Dish are really good; their deep percussive groove and organ/strings sound that was at this time still developing, is displayed nicely here. The Dub in particular is in a similar vein to the later Chocolate City (Love Songs) sound and ... See full review
posted a review of Cabaret Voltaire - Live At The Hacienda. '83 / '86; 11.08.83 / 19.02.86.. over 10 years ago
I was at this gig at tha Hacienda in 1986. It was brilliant and Cabaret Voltaire were at their creative peak at that time I recon. Although the music itself is good, the recording and mastering quality is not. What a shame as this is an important ... See full review

This compilation has been done with the utmost care and is one of the very best of its type. Every track here is a winner with no filler material and mastered from the Salsoul archive mastertapes. Encompasing Salsoul's output that was picked up by ... See full review

The versions of Red Alert here are slightly earlier than the single release the following year. These versions here being a superior mix and have the added bonus of a different dub and the B side. Yo Yo is different too to the LP and other versions I ... See full review

As far as I know, this promo 12" is the only place you will find these particular Deep Dish remixes. They are not renamed mixes found on the regular release as sometimes happens, but different ones altogether. These mixes are more stripped down than ... See full review
posted a review of The The - Sweet Bird Of Truth. over 10 years ago
In addition to including the very fine original 12" mix of 'Sweet Bird Of Truth' as opposed to the re-edit found on the 2002 retrospective '45RPM' Ltd 2xCD with 12" mixes, this release is one of the few (if any) places that 'Harbour Lights' & 'Sleepng ... See full review

This American release contains no less than four Murk remixes, two more than the Warner vinyl release. The Murk mixes were hardly, if at all available on all the other worldwide formats of the single, including promos. This single then, presents most of ... See full review

This is one of the very few place you will get the 12 minute plus remix from Deep Dish. Most other versions of the single, including the common Manifesto copies only contain a 6+ minute Deep Dish edit. This version is well worth getting & hearing because ... See full review

A very eclectic collection of FK's work. Of course, all the remixes are top quality, but I can't help feeling a little let down by the track selections on this release. There are a couple of his well known late disco remixes, but there are far too many ... See full review

This is an essential early Ralph Falcon release. This record is contemporary with the Murk Records releases & is right up there in quality with the Murk/Kumba/Miami Soul material and was so massively infuencial. This track is all fierce, but nuanced ... See full review

This is the only release of the track on Discogs to contain the Murkstrumental. An interesting point is that Murk's main mix is 123 BPM, but the instrumental is at 128 BPM. This is very unusual as almost all instrumental versions of dance tracks are ... See full review

'Keep It On' - This is by far the best of 16b's Airtight recordings. Not all of Omids' tracks are up to the same high standard, with some sounding a little bland & samey. This however, is Omid at his deepest, dubbyest best - up there with much of the ... See full review

'Wonderful Person' is one of my favorite MAW remixes, with lush semi-acoustic guitar work and great vocals. The original Cleveland Anderson/Black Masses track is, in my opinion clearly, both it terms of music and lyrics, very heavily inspired by the ... See full review
posted a review of Erro - Change For Me. over 12 years ago
One of the best male vocal House records ever - sublime! Joey's mix is good but, the addition of the completely unessesary Taka Boom backing vocals and 'girl power' posturing almost spoils a truly great record.
