baze.djunkiii Charts 06/2017

01. Dragon Fly - The Libra EP [White House Records 017]
Being the Breakbeat and electronic music enthusiast I am I was pretty thrilled to see this 1993-released classic being repressed and re-issued for 2017, especially for the amazing A2-tune "As Fast As It Goes" which once was licensed to Force Inc. Music Works for their "Rauschen 5" CD compilation and has been one of my favorite tunes on this album ever since I bought it for its seductive bassline groove, great vocal sample abuse, nerve-wrecking Acid modulations, halftime breakdowns and of course for its absurdly reckless hyperspeed approach. But apart from this massive personal favorite the other three tunes on here bring in more goodness, fusing Oldskool Breakbeat with Acid and Rave elements to fuel deadly energies on every dedicated dancefloor. Great one. 

02. Moby - Go *Rex The Dog Remix [Black Lacquer 050]
Ok, let's be honest. I didn't buy this for the 'Rex The Dog Remix' although the UK-based producer provides a proper delivery in terms of turning this early 90s smash into an epic, well-functional TechHouse / (Neo)Trance tune that gives new- and oldskool ravers the feels for a reason and is able to work contemporary dancefloors right. But still both the 'Original Mix' and the more famous 'Woodtick Mix' were the two additions to my collection I was going for as I originally missed out on buying these tunes as a 13 year old back in 1991. And the wave of thrilling re-releases floating around these days sees me rather going for approved classics and distinct big time anthems of my early Techno and Rave days than for new tunes that don't seem that worthwile to me for many a reason.

06. Mystic Bill - presents Mystic Files 1989-95 [Trax Records]
Call me a backwards completist or someone who's stuck in the past musically but for me at this very point in time the musical longevity and timelessness of many of today's re-issues and represses of tracks released in an era spanning from the late 80s up to the 90s outweighs the relevance of many contemporary releases by far. A fact, that has also been proven by my recent sets in Munich and Bad Kötzting which went back to the days of early Chicago House and even late 70s Disco played alongside modern TechHouse and House tunes. This said, it should be quite obvious why these seven classic Mystic Bill tunes from his only longplay release are complementing my recent selection and overall record collection perfectly with their unagitated yet full on dancefloor functionaliry and raw vibe.
