I'm seriously into electronic music, ranging from the more sedate prog house and prog trance, passing through trance and techno and ending up firmly in the hard dance spectrum. Been mixing all of these styles for just over a year.

Some of my vinyls are for sale, although you'd have to make a decent offer. I will only consider buying/exchanging vinyls that have a 4 or 5 rating. That's why I only rate tracks that I really like.

After a decidedly long intro you get startled by the deep, dark 'n' druggy low-slung bassline that appears out of nowhere. Nothing hard, certainly not fast, but most definitely hypnotic. The bulk of the track consists of this infamous bassline, some ... See full review

Holy uplifting breakdown! This is as good as UK Hard Trance will ever get. Insistent basslines in the intro, coupled with nagging synth lines die out in the break to give one of the most spine-tingling melodies ever conceived by man (in this case, men). ... See full review

Lush! A blissful remix of a modern dancefloor anthem. Chunky, sped up electro house-influenced bosher. Katana doesn't mess with the formula, going with the 'if it ain't broke, then don't fix it' theory, and he does a good job. To be honest, not much is ... See full review

Quite an odd release, this one. On one side you have blissful melodic house, of the progressive variety. Lovely melodies shimmer on the top end, with an understated bassline carrying the track along. This is the sort of track that would work wonders ... See full review

Properly chunky hard tune from Nick Rowland & Dave Wright of Rowland & Wright fame. This is a darker and harder offering than their usual hands-in-the-air stuff...but it's still well worth playing out to the monged masses. Flip it over and you get a dark ... See full review

Pure and unadulterated rubbish. I have NO idea why I bought this vinyl in the first place. I clearly wasn't thinking clearly. All the tracks sound similar, oozing dated semi-melodic techno with nothing to commend it, other than the vaguely interesting ... See full review

Two blinding sides on this slab of plastic. That's always a joy in a world of great A-sides and rubbish B-sides (with the odd exception, of course!). Kahana is a lush melodic progressive trance tune with long searching notes and a deep'n'dark bassline to ... See full review

Holy kickdrum of FILTH! Skoog and Slobodan must have serious rage within them to produce such a vicious remix. Right from the first beat all hell breaks loose. Or to put it in more understandable terms, this tune grabs you by the short'n'curlies and ... See full review

Right, I can't comment on the original as I haven't ever listened to it fully. When I saw this in the record shop I spotted Andrew Bennett's name. That's all I needed. His production work is always of th highest quality, and his remix of this original by ... See full review

There's something extremely appealing about this release, other than the fact that both tunes are really good. It's the fact that each tune is geared for a different dancefloor. The original is a melodic breakbeat tune. Trance'n'Breaks, if you will. The ... See full review

What a howling piece of vinyl. Three great tunes (with varying degrees of greatness) for the price of one. The Santiago Nino Dub Tech mix is quite obviously the tune to go for. Deep, dark bassline coupled with nice percussive elements sit well with the ... See full review

Odd collection of tunes on this EP. Starts off on a high, then dips in the middle, and ends on a high.
New Time, New Place is quite possibly one of the most influential techno/hard dance crossovers of recent years. Combines techy elements with the raw ... See full review

This piece of plastic has got me undecided as to whether it's good or not. On the one hand, you have abysmal experimental-ish techno, filled with irritating bleeps and other sonic annoyances. To be honest, I've never managed to listen to the whole track. ... See full review

Chunky. Sleazy vocals. Unnaturally addictive. This track pushes all the right buttons. This is the way I like my house (music) to be...it has to have something distinctive, that makes it stand out from the rest of nondescript tunes. This one stands out ... See full review

A new side to Ozgur Can? He seemingly ditches his trademark percussion in favour of something entirely different. Come to think of it, I guess that's why he's using one of his aliases for this. Really nice, chilled proggy trancey housey kinda tune. The ... See full review

The Markus Schulz mix has one of the darkest basslines I've EVER heard in a prog track. It's seriously chunky. Sparse top-end elements crop up in the track, but it's all about the bassline. The Orkidea mix strays into pop-trance territory, which isn't my ... See full review

Heard the remix of Doors on a few livesets, and quite predictably went bananas to it. I've only recently found the title and this pleases me a hell of a lot. The A side is a vocal trance affair, with passable lyrics. As of late, a lot of vinyls that I ... See full review

Keep Calm is a old skool-ish bouncy hard house affair with neverending synths blasts. Not a bad track, if you are not quite sober. The track to go for is DEFINITELY Rave Alarm. Howling kick drum beats make your head throb. But, believe...it's all about ... See full review

Fancy some sleazy tech-house? Look no further than this slab of plastic. Boompty beats, long synth stabs and a male urging you to '...look deep inside...' make for a nice tune. Adam Beyer and Joel Mull on the remix duties here. They swerve from the ... See full review

Really peachy proggy tunes here. Metamotional starts off with beats similar to those found in currently popular minimal techno. The elements start to build up into a wall of sound that certainly is pleasing to the ear. Then the track mellows out for a ... See full review

This cheeky track always keeps me on my toes. To be honest, it's not got anything particularly innovative about it. The appeal is the pure energy that it delivers. The kick drums alternate between semi-head-wreck strength and force 10-style pounding. ... See full review

Luke Chable on the remix duties on the A side of this vinyl. He steps into his trusted breaks boots, to deliver a solid workout. Catchy beats, nagging melody, and heavily fx'ed male vocals. Bassline really stands out. The original contains a kick drum so ... See full review

The Luke Chable mix of this track blends light and dark to great effect. The bass is the dark part of the track. Deep, dark, and druggy. The melody starts off with a minimum amount of elements, but gradually builds up into the full-blown lushness that I ... See full review

One of my favourite releases on the label that can do no wrong! First up, we have the Ozgur vs Yilmaz mix of Wave Force. Typical Ozgur-style beats served up here. Good mix, but the original is slightly better. Second up, we have Perry O'Neil's mix of ... See full review

Oh my God! I adore Seattle Calling. Downtempo, lush prog trance at it's best. Not really the sort of track you'd mix to send a dancefloor into mass epileptic fit-mode, but it's just so beautifully crafted. The addition of the guitar is a nice touch, as ... See full review

Absolutely storming mixes of an average track.
K-Series vs Steve Hill mix takes the trancier (and less hard) route, whereas the Lee Haslam Vs Paul Maddox mix goes all bonkers and takes the harder route. Both mixes keep the main riff intact, but it's ... See full review

The tune that featured on most of the respected dance comps in 2004. Quite rightly so, I might add. With such a howlin' melody, it would be foolish not to include it. As usual with most UK hard dance tracks, it has a pounding kickdrum/bassline combo. The ... See full review

All the great elements of the original track are there, except the intro has benefitted from a much needed trim. Much more accessible for a stomp-oriented crowd. When the track breaks, everyone will go nuts. Guaranteed!!!!

Melodic, proggy tribal techno vs. Funky tribal techno. Side A vs. Side B. Both great tracks in their own respect, but Sunshine shades Lazy People simply cos the bassline is more appealing. Darker. Deeper.

Dark-as-you-like. God knows what Tomaz and the Filterheadz were on when making the bassline, but it's deep and dark enough to make you cack your pants if you're not careful. When I first heard this track, I was transfixed. All the elements work in ... See full review
