About the year of release

Basically, I put every track on the page of it's orginally year of release (the 'oldest' year I can find, after searching Discogs and such sites).

More about the music

Why publishing this?

To share my passion, and to get people in touch with - imo - something great they didn't know yet.

Why reading this, being a visitor?

Can be either nostalgic fun, digging up loads of old tracks, or a way to discover something 'new'. Especially among the relatively recent tracks (mid 00s-now) are a lot of less known or even obscure ones.

What kind of music?

I'm no purist, and my musical taste is a mish mash. From almost prehistorical to brand new, from utterly corny to really credible, from number one hits to obscure stuff. And besides that, I like tracks within about 1001 subgenres.

But most is quite light, with a natural undertone and an open, dynamic production. Another thing many tracks are sharing: a psychedelic and/or funky edge.


My personal dislikes:

Bloated, excessively overproduced 'loudness war' music. Obvious autotune. Forced hipness. Sugary softpop like Celine Dion. Specific parts of contemporary EDM; Afrojack and similar styles. Or too generic '50000 people in a huge venue putting their hands in the air' trance.

But there will always be exceptions, with an undefinable 'x-factor'.
