Clark – Lofthouse

When Fact Magazine posted their list of 30 overlooked techno albums, that got me thinking about Mark Bell’s 1995 album on Planet E, a then-popular album that many forgot about.

Cold Mission – The Remixes

Considered by many as the first attempt at broken beat, the duo of Dego and Marc Mac released this track in 1996 on their own Reinforced imprint.

Soul in Motion (compiled by Volcov)

I had this article planned ever since the Deepblak compilation came out, but I only remembered after the Carl Craig special on Stylin. There hasn’t been a classic review in a while, today I want to feature one of my all-time favourite compilations.

Innerzone Orchestra – Programmed

As second review in classic reviews I picked Carl Craig’s Innerzone Orchestra album. Craig recorded this album alongside Francisco Mora, percussionist for Sun Ra’s Orchestra, Craig Taborn and saxophist Matt Chicoine, better known as the tape-in-sandwich dropping Recloose.

Domu – Discotech

While the rest of the world only got the 12″ with four tracks, Discotech was released in Japan (through Psychic Phenomena) as a full album – dispite the EP name. It’s been widely dubbed as Domu-does-Theo-Parrish album, which in my opinion applies to the production technique only. The trademark Domu sound is still there!
