This CD is incorrectly titled "Tale a Picture"...The correct title is "Take a Picture"
posted a review of Blu Peter - Widescreen & Digital. over 10 years ago
I agree with above description. This is a criminally overlooked album from 1999. I bought this in a bargain basement bin for 25p and it was a real joy. I think this album was mainly overlooked because previously Blu Peter had done some cheesy poppy ... See full review
posted a review of Sunsynes - Sunsynes. over 11 years ago
I think this is a great EP. The track Firesynes is a belting hard psy acidic trance rocker, intensely winding and gliding, as good as any other dimension 5 tracks. Sunsyne, uses an occassional vocal "love me, love me, love me", but really comes off, ... See full review

I'm suprised there's not more people wanting "Come Now" this jungle classic. Production is tight and it doesn't get boring. Starts of with a classic intelligent type adam f/ alex reece lush synth over the rolling breaks and snares. Great Changing drum ... See full review

Brilliant 12" of Ragga Jungle featuring Cheshire Cat on vocals & Smith & Mighty (aka More Rockers) on production.

5 words: Night Of The Living E Heads!!! This is a classic hardcore tune. Grumbling dark bass, echoy thundering breaks, gasmask style breathing and the declaration 'hardcore will never die!' (sampled from Public Enemy). This is a timeless tune, and has ... See full review

The Ils remix of this tune is a gem. A real asian beat/ breakbeat rocker - dark & moody..nice bass synth stabs, reverbed asian flute, crisp n funky breaks...a perfect fusion of two great producers. Sinead O Connor's haunting vocals (best she's done for ... See full review
posted a review of Visionaries / Writer's Block - Hindsight / 4U. over 14 years ago
Hindsight uses elements of the Flash Gordon movie theme by Queen for it's main rhythm loop. Conscious, clever and inventive rhymes from The Visionaries. The B-Side is a jazzier, more subtle affair, but still quality. Limited Edition.
posted a review of Nuyorican Soul Featuring Jocelyn Brown - I Am The Black Gold Of The Sun. over 14 years ago
Two gems on this 12". The MAW remix Of Black Gold is similar to the album version, but with a more hip-hop style beat, and added positive and spiritual lyrics from Q-Tip which create a lovely alternate uplifting version.

An interesting Lp throughout, my favourite tracks being ROYGBIV with its slow stomping hip hop beat and lovely warm retro sounding synths/instrumentation and 'hey!' sample, and also the strange a and beautiful 'aquarius'; a laidback electronica lovely ... See full review
posted a review of Peach - Sorrow Town. over 14 years ago
Personally, I would say the 'tumbleweed shootout' mix is the one to go for as this is a classic bassbin twins remix. The groove is stripped down, & the backbone of this tune is a funky 'shaft' wah-wah riff and some crisp breaks and boomin bass...add a ... See full review

Took me ages to track this down, this rare promo not only has the rare kruder & dorfmeister mix of Bugpowder dust, plus the instrumental which are the ultimate chilled and spacy hip-hop trips, it also has the very rare jedi knight mix II of Absorber, ... See full review
posted a review of RYU - Never Too Soon. over 14 years ago
The original is a dj-shadowesque mellow deep slow break atmospheric track verging on broken beat with krush's trademark layered beats, plus beautiful female vocals coming.
The Mcmillan & South mix is also really good, keeping the mellow atmospheric ... See full review

A Really nice collection of jazz step, most on a more mellow vibe...some have those alex reece/ early dj krust jazzy sounds, others have gone more original and complicated approaches. Elementz of noise's track has a gorgeous reverbed vocal which sounds ... See full review
posted a review of Various - Ambient Senses - The Vision. over 14 years ago
Some real ambient gems in this collection, and most of these have stood the test of time well.
On listening to this now in 2005, the thing you notice is how much effort is put into creating mood and build up in many of these tracks...something lacking ... See full review

This is also my favourite Spiral Tribe tune. It's got a real rebellious shamanic vibe to it that gets me going everytime i hear it...To me it's as much a old skool hardcore record as it is techno, but there's so much more to it: The track starts with the ... See full review
posted a review of Various - Earth. over 14 years ago
I would say that this collection signifies a change of direction and a more fresh and openminded approach to the earth series. The sounds here are still underground, but they represent a more down-tempo wider field; dark 70's style blacksploitation/ spy ... See full review
posted a review of Urban Jungle - Bad Man. over 14 years ago
All the mixes of this up tempo dub-based tune are good, but it's the rare BLACK DOG mix that shines with it's dub/roots vibe, changing rhythms (from a 8 bar skank to frequent repetitive loops) and tech edge and lots of nice effects. A nice stepper around ... See full review
posted a review of Twisted Anger Featuring Danny C - Take It / The Latin Thing. over 14 years ago
I disagree with the above comments, I think the Latin Thing is a lovely piece of Brazillian style drum & bass. The bass is loud and hard, the vocal is lovely...A real upbeat summery vibe without being cliched or twee...rugged enough for the hardcore ... See full review

This has one of the best Pete Rock Instrumentals ever; a well funky and jazzy horn lick with a nice vocal addition over rugged beats...Chuck D's uncompremising lyrics work really well over it...Pete Rock Himself even adds a verse. Classic PE.

There's only really one gem of a track on here and that's NEVER AGAIN. A wicked upbeat hip-hop-ska/ asian beat fusion classic that rocks it everytime. The most recognisable sample is the horn skank from the specials 'Ghost Town' which is timestretched so ... See full review

THE SAGA is a brilliant track, a steady building, pulsing number, a great atmospheric builder, perfect for early in a set when you want to start the crowd moving. nice bassy,underground techno with subtle acidic & psychedelic touches in places.
posted a review of 3rd Bass - The Cactus Al/Bum (The Cactus Album). over 15 years ago
Classic Hip-Hop LP from 1989 which has brilliant varied instrumentals and clever, humourous and conscious rhymes a plenty from MC Serch and Pete Nice. The whole album rocks throughout, and sadly albums like this are a rarity in hip-hop. Timeless stuff.

This track is musically what i would call Industrial Electro Ragga Dancehall. I think whoever listed it incorectly referred to it as gabba. Its not. The tempo is a 102bpm ragga dancehall style but coming from a noisy sonic leftfield electronic approach. ... See full review

This is the female vocalist Coldcut sampled for their 'Seven Minutes Of Madness' mix of 'Paid In Full' by Eric B & Rakim, hence the 'Played In full mix' on here. Nice middle eastern dance music.

Just to add another opinion, the Dillinja mix is good; dark and bassy but not one of my favs of his.
The Guy Called Gerald mix is very moody and original and is of the style of his Secret Black Technology LP. The way he's distorted the vocals is really ... See full review
