So was this meant to be a promo for the Deconstruction Presents compilation on the sticker? Cause that's the only reason I could think to add the unrelated Sasha & Maria track to this single.

I think "dream house" refers to a few different scenes that happened. This one is the Orb-inspired hardcore-tinged ambient house with a faster tempo scene.

Why exactly is most of the Opus III track drowned under a heavy flanger effect?

Always fun to see this pop up when searching for pretty much any dance track from the 90s

The B-side is a blank groove that runs an astonishing 48 minutes. Must be some sort of record outside of locked grooves.

Pretty comprehensive package. None of the tracks are really "great", but most of them are pretty good for different reasons. Has a variety in sounds (House, Progressive House, Trance, Hard Trance), pretty forward thinking for 1993. White vinyl looks... See full review

Both sides sound pretty good for a bootleg, could very well have been CD sourced

Deep Forest (RLP Trance Mix) is a offkilter but pretty nice progressive house track

Figure Of Eight (Grid Total Trance Mix) is a decent track

Neither track quite keeps a steady BPM, but you can work with them if you play your cards right

Track mixes matched up to other releases:

A1 Cold (Ralphi's Club Mix)
A2 Cold (4 On The Floor House Mix)
A3 Cold (Album Version) [not on the commercial 12"]
B1 Cold (Mark!'s Adventurous Mix)
B2 Cold (Maurice Underground Mix)

Sounds like there's some DAT errors in the BT mix, the "zipper" noise, though they're brief.

Good StoneBridge mixes, but the Motiv 8 mix is a real winner.

The Maceo Plex remix sounds surprisingly bad. It's technically not sourced from an MP3, but it seems like multiple parts of it are sourced from MP3, that and the EQ sounds mediocre. A shame, a great track otherwise.

Two anecdotes: I first saw these pop up in the stores on RSD 2016. Also, I've seen this go for some ridiculous prices, like $50-70.

Why did the German and UK 1998 reissues not include the original version of 3.2?

Not an incredible pressing, but better than the YouTube video would have you believe. Decent housey remix / bootleg.

The unlisted "Narayan Beats" track on the start of side D is a great DJ tool since it's 129bpm, then goes right into the 141bpm Firestarter, so you can switch from a slower BPM to a faster one in a cool way in your set

Any reason why this didn't get a proper US release?
posted a comment on Coldplay - Clocks. 3 months ago
Peaked at #31 in the Dance Club charts in the US, despite not having an official dance remix for DJs. Perhaps the bootlegs were just that popular?
posted a comment on Donna Summer - Hot Stuff / Bad Girls / I Feel Love. 3 months ago
The first kick in I Feel Love is slightly off time, otherwise it keeps time astonishingly well for such an old track

Try mixing the acapella ending of Halcyon into a pad-filled intro of another proggy track, when the Opus III vocal gets louder by the end, it can work wonders with other tracks.
posted a comment on Orb* - Orblivion. 3 months ago
This has a unique master to the CD version, as some of the transitions heard on the CD were redone to sound better with the side breaks on vinyl.
posted a comment on Bushflange - Cloud Cover. 4 months ago
Decent release on the cheap, the A side is a good piece of proto big beat / progressive breaks, and the B side is a new agey ambient piece which name is a reference to the Phillip Glass-composed Koyaanisqatsi.

Sasha had a very distinctive production style at this time for his tracks and remixes, kind of a lofi midrange heavy sound reminiscent of early BT. Maybe he learned a few tricks from him when working with him in the studio?

If only he had used a different snare sound for Massive Control

In addition to being a cover of the Bryan Adams song, it also nabs the bassline/melody from I'll Be Your Friend by Robert Owens. Nice track though.

I actually really like the Dream With A Dream Mix, unfortunately my second copy has a ton of hiss from the PVC sleeve it's stored in melting into the record over the years.
If anyone in the US is selling a copy on vinyl with this mix, let me know

B side is kinda eh with it's synth trying to recreate the original, but the A side, which seems to directly sample the original, is killer

A2 - Pressure US (SXS) is a decent bit of acid proto-trance

Nice remix from the always-reliable The Light. Sort of a goa vibe to this one.

Great remix by Hybrid, however the bpm drifts a bit toward the end, not by much though, but just something to be aware of. Also the hi hats are somewhat distorted (most noticable in the beginning).

Don't sleep on the flip side, the Illumination mix is a full on 4 to the floor trance mix of the track (with no vocals)

Waah sounds to me like it shares similarities with another Pob track, Beast. Perhaps it's a remake?

Nice tracks, like a bit softer version of Hard Trance. The B side is pretty short though, so be quick with your beatmatching and queing.
