    This is what that would sound like if they did things differently;

    I'm using the same argument as you to show you how ridiculous your argument is

    If I had to make a guess, someone was trying to get a post count quick. Either so they could PM or access restricted forums.
    English did not appear to be their first language which explains repetition of some post content. They weren't a bot though.

    Now either the mods have some evidence that uppon reaching the required post count they misused the gained privileges.
    Or they assumed the worst and presumed him guilty before they reached that count and then sinned.
    Or the behaviour very closely matched a previous spam attempt.

    I'm just guessing though.

    Original '91/'92 trance is where it's at.

    Stardiver - Lifetime Mission (10 minutes of madness mix) - Wolfgang Voight (Mike Ink, Gas, Kompakt, etc) in '91
    Near Dark - Heute ist ein guter Tag zu Sterben - Torsten Fenslau (Abfhart, Culture Beat :D, etc) in '92
    Barbarella - My Name Is Barbarella - Sven Vath's best tune

    Though, yeah, '93/'94 were trance's high point. It was all down hill after that.

    Pob - Strata (Clanger Remix) - best thing Platipus Records put out
    Digital Excitation - Sunburst (Cubic 22 Remix) - this took my head apart one night tripping at Megatripolis
    Pete Lazonby - Sacred Cycles - one for the 'long intros' thread - the drop doesn't come until 5:24

    Nice, I know all those artists in one form or another, I shall play em all through this eve :thumbs:

    Barbarella is great - got that on Harthouse 12 somewhere... Also love Spicelab, though it was generally a bit punchier at least the earlier stuff.

    My poor fucked ears :D Few too many BPMs for my definition of trance, but a banger nonetheless.

    I keep forgetting Sven dabbled in Trance.
    I only ever associate him with German Techno.

  10. He ran the Harthouse & Eye Q labels. Some of the bands he was in in the 80s had some proto-trancey sounding tracks.
    eg from 1986

    And was a resident at Club Dorian Grey in Frankfurt, which is to trance music what Ron Hardy's Muzic Box was to House.

    Ah this thread's got me all misty eyed for really old trance now.

    although that's late 90s and probably more than a few too many bpms for you :D

    I notice you posted the dub version. Is that because Sven is one of the worst vocalists in the history of recorded music? :D

    Seems everyone agrees platipus stuff can be ok... I seem to remember the reactivate 13 comp was good for the old Mitsubishi after party sessions too

    Stardiver not for me but the Torsten Fenslau track is great (reminds me of Propaganda in a funny way). Barbarella great, thanks for posting, I haven't heard that in literally *15-20 years*.

    Pob and the rest great too. Surprised to hear the Cubic 22 mix as their 'hit' track was dead ravey (Night in Motion which is great for what it is). I think I know the Lazonby track from the Carl Cox Fact mix (which also has the truly awesome Ego Acid by Pump Panel on it).

    Nice one. One more from me - gonna keep my powder dry for another night :)

    There's more hard acid in the Platipus stuff than I remember, which is a GOOD THING. And I remember the Reactivate comps! Had a few on vinyl, sadly I think I got rid... but shall check em out on Discogs to see if there are any lost classics on there.

    We shall keep the ironic thread title :)

    Careful with those reactivate comps, I just tried listening to some tracks on YouTube and much of it is utter shite... I def remember loving some tracks tho

    Oh yea there's a *lot* of shite on 'em. I think I was buying them around vol 7 and 8. I see that they lost it with vol 14 'Larry the Lobster's Trancetastic Pot Boilers' (ffs seriously).

    But looking through them they had an Illuminatae track and they were class - 'Tremora del terra'. But I'm not posting that one, I'm posting this one - it fucking BANGS :D

    Another kwality '93 track...

    Beats & Pieces 24601 / 9430

    See here is the thing - that record was hugely popular and yet was recognised as being a legitimate part of of a particular musical stream. In this instance context is important, taking in to account Europe (Belgium (*cough*), Techno, Hard Core (prior to the 'dark stuff'), Nu-Beat and Pop music.

    History being re-written.
  24. Torsten Fenslau made some of the best early trance tracks but he was also producing Culture Beat at the same time. you can't blame him for stealing the sound as he practically invented it.

    It was the object of scorn at the time, just like it is now. I remember getting annoyed by people thinking you were into it when you said you liked techno.

    well there is a bit in it that goes "techno, techno, techno, techno" ;)

    definitely it was hated at the time....
    " recognised as being a legitimate part of of a particular musical stream " <<<legitimate part of commercial dance pop and dodgy have a fight disco

    Ive actually mellowed on a lot of all the crap commerical dance tunes of the early 90s...a bit of nostalgia has taken the edge off the shitness
    hah yeah....it was definitely a high point

    The techno chorus was precisely why I was asked if I liked them.
    It was pretty irritating.
    I don't know why BNP thinks it was regarded as legitimate. By who? That's not what me and my peers thought of it. We thought it was pretty much the opposite - people cashing in on the underground by association.

    yeh that 2 unlimited record was never anything other than sellout pop cheese.

    as opposed to say "I wanna be a hippy" which did have its roots in the underground
