I have been buying what we now call oldskool house music since 1992 and been a DJ ever since. I love all kinds of music and am still learning about new tracks and mixes on a daily basis and of course still filling the gaps in my collection. In the early 00's I sold over 4000 records on ebay with the same user name (99.8% positive feedback). But have just started to use discogs, so please buy with confidence.

I have a you tube channel and have uploaded some oldskool mixes:

Quite simply their best album, not only does it sound raw but Dave's writing has matured, the rifts are as always uplifting, the songs have melody and its loud! Butch Vig has delivered big time. There really are no fillers but for me standout tracks are ... See full review

I have been a fan since day one and I can't agree more with most of the comments about "the man like" but considering his career was built on those mix tapes from the likes of Shelleys and the Eclipse surely its time for Sasha to dust down his italian ... See full review

The mid 90's were the highlight of club culture and this mix should be a classic, but for me it never really hit the mark. The DJ line up is outstanding firstly Tong delivering a typical "sat night" mix with the big tunes of the day - the Nagasaki EP the ... See full review

The Sub Sub/Doves story is great, this is what the 90's music scene was all about - ordinary lads with musical talent could press up their own tune just so they could get on the guest list of the Hac!! Although "Space Face" and "Ain't no love" are both ... See full review

UK Vocal house music at its very best, this was a massive tune with DJ's like Graeme Park and Alister Whitehead back in the Day. The Delorme mix has a more progressive feel but the track to play is the Doc & Baron Club mix, which showcases Suzi Carr's ... See full review

Without doubt the album that introduced me to dance music - as a kid at school these sounds were a breath of fresh air, a hint of a sound to come "the 90's" and rave culture. Base heavy, soulful vocals, amazing production a true uplifting vibe. I never ... See full review

Fantazia's decision to appeal to more mainstream clubbers in the mid 90's was a clever one. The rave culture had split into different genres and those that were around in the early days were growing up and the house sound was more mellow, hence this ... See full review

Agree completely with the other reviews, seminal drum and bass from 1993. As more of a piano's and uplifting type this was one of the tunes that changed my perception of "darkness" back in the day. The drum pattern is amazing as are the strings and ... See full review

Break Beaper has a nice tough break, a few samples and fairly uplifting piano break, average 92 hardcore really. Flip it over for Organised Crime which is a blatant rip off (cover!) of elements of Acen - Trip to the Moon (pt1). It even has the same ... See full review

A1 samples the Irish folk band Clannad - Theme from Harry's game, which sits ok with some tight drum loops it then goes a bit techno and the samples come back. Not thes best example of 1992 hardcore but ok!
