Amazing new Function release in classic Sandwell District style. Super tight and emotional production.

What a great compilation. This contains some of Derek's finest works in my opinion.
16 tracks long 100% pure quality techno to dream away. The whole gatefold package is really classy too, I love the minimalistic artwork very much.
And the pressing is... See full review

If you want some of the finest varied house EP's from this year, you need this.
'Fallenquas' is a deep house gem from the highest level. Larry Heard style with with lovely melodies.
'Time To Be Real' is a lush 90's style vocal track, 'Monkeyslop' got... See full review

Brilliant EP again on Noire & Blanche.
The quality of this EP reminds me of Loure's 'Westside Movements'.
Favorites are 'Floating On Silence' and 'Nite People' which sounds like an old Italian deep house classic.
Still some available online so don't... See full review

So on the last day of the year I can conclude that this is the best album of 2022 for me. It is so ingeniously put together, has not bored me for a second and has grown with every listen. Although the album contains many different styles, it is kept... See full review

I recently saw the name Panoram with a new release, which immediately reminded me of 'Everyone Is A Door', and this record. I had almost forgotten how beautiful both albums are... Melancholic delights. How could I even forget such beauties.... See full review

Almost 30 (!) years old, but this one still brings heat to the dance floor. 'Deep Blue Night' would not look out of place on the 'Welcome to Paradise - Italian Dream House' compilations.

Couldn't agree more with the comment of ruralidyll below.
It costs a little more, but is well worth the money. If this record was a few years old, this selling price would be a bargain, especially for an unplayed copy. The fact that 'New For U (Live)'... See full review

Only a few manage to hold the attention for ten minutes with minimal means. Losoul can do it like no other. Especially in 'Ghost Talk' little seems to happen at first hearing, but with subtle variations and a hypnotic groove it remains fascinating... See full review

My copy got a blue stamp on it. Anyone else also got a blue stamp instead of a black one?
I've uploaded a picture. Looks very nice :-) Is this something like a golden ticket?
Anyway, that makes this superb release even more special.

The retail price in Europe starts from €25. That's pricey indeed, but it's well worth the money with 'New For U (Live)' pressed in full length on one single vinyl side. That alone is better than most handjobs. And you can play whenever you like it, no... See full review

MASSIVE EP! All four tracks are of the highest standard, House as House is meant to be: deep, warm, loose. With Souldynamic's 'Find A Way' as the crown jewel. Must buy if you are a true house lover.

That B-side is an epic 10 minute funky deep house burner. Maybe my all time favorite Persie edit.

One of the greatest vocal house tracks ever imo. This one never get's bored.
I was hoping for a repress since the box set. Very clear sounding remaster and great pressing.

I've got the digital version of this release for a while, but somehow it kept on growing. So I also finally ordered the vinyl version. This is progeressive house as I like it. Very tight, uplifting production. All four tracks are massive. No weak... See full review

Superb techno release indeed. For me Rod Modell's 'Transmission D' is the stand out track. Deep rolling basses and spacey electronics. I prefer this tempo much more than his speedy Tresor 'Captagon' release. This is heavy minimal techno to get lost in.
Fabe (8) & Janeret - Angry Space

I just played my copy and I can confirm that this is a perfect pressing!
If you doubt buying this, don't! Great record on both sides. Side A is an old school party anthem and side B is one of Janeret's best productions in a while if you ask me.
Million Dollar Disco Machine - The Loneliest One

Superb blend of 'It Seems To Hang On' and 'Ask The Lonely'. As if these two tracks are made for each other.
In my opinion this is going to be a classic rework that will be played for a long time. Nu-Disco heaven at the highest level.
Oh, and here you... See full review

It's not on my copy. I think you're just unlucky. I should contact the record shop you bought it from and ask for a replacement.

I can confirm this pressing sounds excellent. Compared to the black vinyl version this one's quiet and sounds beautifully warm. This is the vinyl quality the album deserves. The white colored vinyl completes the party.

I don't know with this release, but I have the 2020 repress and the tracks have the same duration as the original release.
So A1: 6:43 - A2: 5:09 / B: 6:45

Massive remix from John Talabot. A 100 BPM dubbed out trippy groove, that holds the tension for 15 minutes without peaking, but slowly build up and take downs.
It crawles in your head and massages your brain with subtle alternations of mechanical... See full review

Wow, this is some really great breakbeat house EP and takes you straight back to the early 90's.
The tracks are full of variety with beautifull pads, acid lines, breaks, vocal snippets and powerfull beats.
In one word superb!

This is such a beauty of an album. The piano driven, minimalistic pieces are full of soul and melancholy and takes you back into time.
It combines jazz, R&B and some sparse vocals. A timeless album that will warm your room in the winter.

Together with K-Lone this must be one of my favorite Dr Banana's.
Especially 'Sybil's Groove', which superbly samples Sybil's - Falling In Love, is a must.
Classic stuff already.

As the title suggests, this album breathes peace. This is a great tranquil trip to empty your stressful mind.

Superb deep house with a raw techno / electro edge. Dreamy but with great power, those mysterious vocals are killing it.
It sounds like a lost gem from the early 90's. Get that yellow colored vinyl while you can.
