I have to disagree that the Turn Up The Bass series was 3 killers and the rest fillers. Those "fillers" were usually underground hits which never made it into the big spotlights. For me, most Turn Up The Bass compilations contained the best of the music ... See full review

Wide Area Network Records is now a dead label. I've decided to quit the label since I couldn't get anything done with it anymore. It has been a wonderful time to run this label, but it's now a thing of the past.

In it's stead, I am now running a new, ... See full review
posted a review of Various - Essential Elements 6. over 15 years ago
the chosen tracks are awesome (one can not go wrong with tracks by Gusto, Sunshower, Jark Prongo and Secret Cinema) but the mixing is not very good. It's beatmatched perfectly, but some tracks just don't match with eachother, the styles differ too much.
posted a review of Simex. over 15 years ago
Simex seems to have the gift of making techno music interesting to listen to as well as to dance to. Most techno music sounds best when heard on a big sound system at a party, but the music Simex makes is also very interesting to just listen to when at ... See full review

though this album is definately not a bad album, I must say that I liked his period of idm/industrial influenced music more. the stuff released on warp and a shocking hobby are just more intricate, more interesting to listen to. but I guess this album ... See full review
posted a review of Oval - Szenariodisk. over 16 years ago
I must indeed agree this is definately one of the best things I have heard from oval, period. there is something to this disc that I have not heard in other Oval music, though I can't pinpoint what exactly this is.

similar to boards of canada yet a little less polished, hoola hopz is totally recommended for those that like what's released on warp and similar labels.

the chemical brothers seem to become more and more aimed at whatever is popular, and not at whatever is good. the early chemical brothers work are very groundbreaking and very good, but when they released surrender something snapped, something went ... See full review
posted a review of Outland Records. over 16 years ago
one of the best house labels to ever release anything in the netherlands, this label started simply as an amsterdam record store.

outland has released some classics! and their sleeve designs, done by dutch artist dadara, are always very nice to see.
posted a review of AmbientLive. over 16 years ago
the AmbientLive events are definately very nice events. pretty underground, but that's probably the power behind the events: they're not too big and contain good music that won't ever get too commercially interesting.

The releases on the labelbranch ... See full review
posted a review of Animals On Wheels - Designs And Mistakes. over 16 years ago
a very nice combination of drum n bass, breakbeat and idm-ish influences. different from a lot of other releases because of "acoustic" feel it has, even though most (if not all) sounds were actually from electronic instruments.
posted a review of Ant-Zen. over 16 years ago
ant-zen, or Anti-Zensur in it's full name, is a label that focusses on quality music with an experimental feeling. be it noise, dark ambient, drones or full on digital hardcore ... it's good if it's released on ant-zen (of course, this is subject to ... See full review

very refreshing mix of old electronic synth music with new and experimental sounds. a combination I have not heard before.
posted a review of Chulk. over 16 years ago
It is weird and amazing that this artist isn't signed yet to a label such as warp, rephlex or skam. his music is awesome. it's autechre, but not autechre. it's aphex twin yet not aphex twin. it's solid. it's present.

Come With Us, the most recent endeavour of the UK duo The Chemical Brothers, is also their least. they have sold out. this album does not contain any of their really booming breakbeats that made them famous and even gave them their own genre. it's all ... See full review

posted a review of Aphex Twin - On. over 17 years ago
of all music that richard d james has ever released, "on" must be the single best piece ever. it has the chilled, ambient feeling of a lot of tunes, but also the weird, distorted rhythmic works of other aphex work. still, this track is unique in every ... See full review

this album is one of two opposites.

on one end, it rocks ass big time. the music is awesome, and is once more very refreshing. especially the classical pieces are something totally unexpected and very refreshing.

on the other end, this release is ... See full review

this release, though not officially linked to the rephlex label, is still a rephlex release. this can be seen easily by checking the notes in the inner grooves of the vinyl release. the notes there say:
