I like music. Like, a lot.

Anything rated 3 or below in my collection is for sale. Records rated 4 or below are available for trade if you can offer me something in my wantlist. Please don't send me unsolicited mail regarding lots for sale on EBay—I'd much rather trade or purchase records individually.

posted a review of Mathew Jonson And The Mole / Axel Bartsch - Speicher 26. over 13 years ago
Mathew Jonson and The Mole—not surprisingly—go deep and ridiculously trippy on the A side here. Eerie pads, chanting monks, and a punchy echoing bass riff drift in and out over minimal percussion, and after the breakdown the kick burns into ... See full review
posted a review of Trentemøller - Physical Fraction. over 13 years ago
This is an excellent crossover record that bridges the gaps between house, electro and progressive quite nicely. Great sound design and outstanding production value, as always from Trentemøller.
posted a review of Arto Mwambé & The Barons Of Burma* - Girl You Know It's Arto Mwambé. over 13 years ago
This is one <i>dirty</i>, funky, chunky little record right here. Solid percussion, wobbly retro basslines, nasty distorted acid squirts, and tastefully minimal vox on "Cryptonite." A must-have summer record for house, electro and techno fans alike.
posted a review of Portishead. over 13 years ago
I must say the only reason Portishead could ever sound "dated" is that they've been painstakingly imitated for the past decade, to various degrees of success. Beth Gibbons' voice epitomizes yearning and heartache. And while I can't say that Andy Smith's ... See full review
posted a review of Justin Maxwell - Garrulous. over 14 years ago
This is certainly the nastiest thing on Palette, on par with the Tejada & Leviste's latest. It's deep, funky, totally electronic and quirky as all hell. "Garrulous" is a tough percussive tool with huge bass and wacky synth squeals. "Lousy Party" is a ... See full review
posted a review of The Other People Place ft. Mystic Tribe A.I. - Sunday Night Live At The Laptop Cafe. over 14 years ago
This was recently repressed on plain 'ol black vinyl. This is some seriously laid back minimal gear--an excellent addition to the collection of Burial Mix fans as well as Playhouse followers.
posted a review of Geoff White & Dialogue - Works. over 14 years ago
Dialoge's rework on the B side is one of the sickest, deepest grooves to be pressed on vinyl as of late. This is quirky electronic dub at its finest.
posted a review of Aphasia (2) - Acapulco / Say Hello. over 14 years ago
Two quality tracks on this record, each with a flavor all its own. "Acapulco" is a dreamy tribal affair that chugs on with a healthy dose of dubby space echo, and "Say Hello" is more of a tech-house thumper that aims for the floor with tight percussion ... See full review
posted a review of Various - Bunchlox Four. over 14 years ago
While most may buy this record for Tony Senghore's track (which is quite excellent), the stand-out for me is the Southern Roots track on the inside: a delightful shuffle-house masterpiece with lots of kick and character. The Southern Roots' "Bouldin' ... See full review
posted a review of Rima Featuring Julie Dexter - Let It Go. over 14 years ago
Skip the "dub" and "house" mixes, and head straight for the John Tejada remix, a top-notch vocal break with superb production and arrangement. The single track is well worth the price of the record.
posted a review of Maetrik - My Specs. over 14 years ago
Lush textures and precision programming make this record one of my favorites of all time. Dark and tough, yet somehow gorgeous and soothing at the same time.
posted a review of Nathan Fake - Outhouse. over 14 years ago
Boards of Canada-style synths in three distinct flavors: a thumping techy tribal bit on the big side, a downtempo quirkster and an almost progressive little beats mix on the other. Hot shit.
posted a review of Cutlab - Loudkissin'. over 15 years ago
Asad's "Silverlining Smooch" remix gets my vote for tribal tech-house release of the year (2002). A friggin' killer.
posted a review of The Logic Box - Liquid EP. over 15 years ago
After almost a year, this one is still in my box when I gig. "Liquid" is a flowing, super-deep tech-house cut with lush pads, sexy vocal snippets and a quirky little bassline. An excellent opener or closer. "One" is a more dancefloor-friendly dubby ... See full review
posted a review of Tijuana - Groove Is In The Air (Remixes). over 17 years ago
Simon's remix is an absolute masterpiece... dark and dubby, with chilling builds. Works wonders as a set breakdown.
