A great early 00s effort from Air – bravely moving towards a deeper, trippier sound! For 10,000 Hz Legend, they wisely don't try to replicate the comparably effervescent vibe of their late 90s classic Moon Safari. On some level, they're still working with some of moodier textures of their ... (Rock, New Grooves)read moreLP, Vinyl record album

A cool set by an artist who's clearly influenced by all the older trippy styles issued by the Pharaway Sounds label – especially that imprint's strong focus on fuzzy psych from the Mid-East! In fact, the overall sound of this set's so cool, you could easily pass it off as some lost Turkish ... (Global Grooves, New Grooves)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
8 tracks of mostly drums and drum machine – with no titles – from Vincent Lawrence aka Virgo. Pretty much put together as tool for house and club DJs in it's day, this set is equally appealing on its own, as an excellent snapshot from the heyday of Chicago house.
