  • Akufen


    CD / My Way / Force Inc

    Amazing, cut-up collage thing, using various one second samples coupled with a strong beat and (occasionally) nice, melodic riffs to carry the pieces.

  • Better Than The Beatles

    Better Than The Beatles!

    CD / various / Knight Records

    This is much more than just a novelty album, i think it really captures a bit of what it must have felt like to be in the midst of the BEATLE frenzy of 1964

  • Queen tribute

    Dynamite With A Laserbeam

    CD / various / Three.One.G

    Queen as heard through the meat grinder of Three One G. All in all an enjoyable tribute album; one guaranteed to really piss off any hard core Queen fanatics.

  • Sasha Funke

    Sascha Funke

    12inch / When Will I Be Famous b-w Be Tender & Surrender / Bpitch Control

    When Will I Be Famous, his fourth release on Bpitch, is his anthem. The two instrumental b-sides are a mix of minimal electro/house/techno.

  • Gore Gore Girls

    Gore Gore Girls

    CD / Up All Night / Get Hip Recordings

    although UP ALL NIGHT is a fun album, it sounds surprisingly lackluster compared to last year's effort (STRANGE GIRLS).

  • Paul Kalkbrenner

    Paul Kalkbrenner

    12inch / Brennt / Bpitch Control

    Every track has a trancey tech-house minimal feel to it.

  • Messer Chups

    Messer Chups

    CD / Black Black Magic / Solnze Records

    Images that define Messer Chups: bright colors, zipper suited aliens and cheap flying saucers, racy woman in tiny costumes.

  • The Modern World

    The Modern World - Sounds of a Beat Generation

    2xCD / various / Boss Sounds (Cherry Red)
