not to nitpick, but Hermon passed on JUNE 27 2010, not July. probably the most inspirational person i ever had the good fortune of spending time with/had the privilege to call a friend.

grab this one while it's still cheap. can see this one shooting up in price once people catch on, great disco based house.
posted a review of The Mole People - Break Night / Ocean. over 2 years ago
Both sides are VERY "techy" house (this would no doubt be called "tech house" if released in the last 15 years), definetly made for the late night warehouse grip.

great mid 00s minimal vibe that fades nicely into a dark, acidhouse influenced pre-Berghain basher, only to fold back over on itself sunrise style.
posted a comment on Jeff Mills - Force Universelle EP. over 2 years ago
yeah "Captivator" is like "solid sleep" or "automatic" sped up w a bit more frigid funk. one of the better purpose maker era jams. "La Force" is nice too.....

Funny Richie Rich wasn't satisfied as this is for sure one of the last good things he made (this and 005 are the only ones beyond the Concept 12"s i can stomach). $220 tho?!?!?! i understand it's piss rare, but jesus.
posted a review of Electric Deluxe - Electric Deluxe. over 2 years ago
IMO Speedy J was always one of the most over rated dudes in global techno, making cheesy tunes. however, Public Energy 12" is a killer and this one here is a classic. that whole "spastik"/"washmachine"/"tribal bells" etc etc etc vibe, you can rock this ... See full review

this may just be "another solid tool", but its a very solid one IMO; esp with both sides blended. a bit like "spastik"/"boots on the run"/"electric deluxe"/"demented drums"/"washmachine"/"day by day (green velvet mix)" if all of those records ate a ... See full review

i don't like disagreeing with user:MAROKO as he is a hero to all discogs users; but i happen to think this is the best track in the WK7/Head High cannon. "Washer" is great breakbeat (built not sampled!) HOUSE, with a truly fucked sounding vocal sample; ... See full review
posted a review of Soul Capsule - Overcome. over 2 years ago
PROPER "deep"! everyone seems to love "Lady Science" (great track and i gotta say, w/o the 'tek mix' this record drops a few points), but personally "Overcome" makes it into many, many more sets of mine. Ford/Hutton/Melchoir was unstoppable in the late ... See full review

posted a review of Kevin Yost. over 2 years ago
One of those rare producers who put a very unique stamp on what can be a (at times) generic/tepic genre ("deep" house). like Wayne Gardiner , Larry Heard, Theo Parrish or DaRand Land, Yost's sound is steeped in Jazz influences (tonally and rhythmically) ... See full review
posted a review of Murk Records. over 2 years ago
Love how these 12"s all had the WL w minimal printing; perfect "canvas" for *actual* MURK to collect on, giving all the 12"s a similar dirt stained looking label (being 25 years old at this point). as well, the label/crew name lets you know 100% what ... See full review

posted a comment on The Bass Foundation - Recognition. over 2 years ago
not to nitpick but Castoldi just plays keys (and that he does very well), this one's produced by JOE T (up there w Wayne G for best 90s NYC house producers IMO). all of Joe's early productions (Jahkey B, 10BC, New Sound Of Soul) as well as the Castoldi ... See full review

posted a comment on DSR - Miami. over 2 years ago
"babaloo" is the hidden classic on here. whenever i play it people always guess its something from the last 10 years. as moogacid says; treads many genres waters without fully forming to one, and also has a great afternoon/outdoor party/beachy vibe. ... See full review

"techno driven" has a great (non acidic) 303 bass line and strange bleeps dancing around some very nice pads (a thin one droning the whole time and some w more body that come in playing a melody). love to slip it under a nice long/deep drum section, ... See full review

while A1 and B1 are both better than most, i guess Colin Gate was that dude cause A2/B2 shine very bright compared to the prior versions on this 12".

probably Willie Wall's best right here. this record had to have been huge UK side, the bassline is very proto 2 steppy. vox are great too.

when the hell did this become a $250 joint?!?!?!?! i seem to remember when living in Detroit this was a "barely ever pops up, but when it does good luck getting $3 for it" type. "party rap" is god damn awful, but "young boyz" is one of the coldest ... See full review

don't like A1/B1 too much but B2 is a great one to slip under a "deeper" jam. really expands the grip.

B1 has never failed in a set for me, people really love that one.
posted a review of MCW'S System* - Spank It. over 2 years ago
no reviews??? Willie Wall's track record is near perfect, not his "best" record here, but 100% class. "spank it" has that raw, machine-like, train about to be derailed, classic house calculus kickin. can hear Bo Diddley etc in it.

"love your brother" is a track that may not seem like much at first, but played by the right dj or even just heard at the right time reveals it self to be a tightly wound, slamming jam; true "deep house", relying more on absence than presence. can make a ... See full review

one of the best house records ever made, the painting on the label really sums up the atmosphere of this record perfectly. blend side A + B together for true transcendence.

i don't think Wayne G ever made a "bad" record, and while this isn't my favorite of his, those early 90s "guitar" sounds from some cheap keyboard in "Rapid Winds" are sublime, and "Keepin' On" (classic man mixdown); throw that one over anything. almost ... See full review

the "deep house" track being referred to is the A side of the 2ns Psyance 12", which although it has that female vox loop kickin; its not very housey IMO. i love how Ron Allen made some of the best "deep house" tracks that are also some of the best ... See full review
