An updated page, showcasing what makes my music:


  • Jean Michel Jarre



Like this masterpiece: Equinoxe Or this: Magnetic Fields Or possibly his best single: Part 4, from Chronologie Or if you're just after the best bits, the: Images compilation

Whatever you may think of Vangelis or Jan Hammer, Jean Michel Jarre is the world's first and only synthesizer superstar and rightly so. To have created such organic masterpieces with the technology available in the 1970s is just magical...



  • Depeche Mode



Mode at their brilliant best If you'd ever wish to see a studio album performed live in it's entirety, surely Songs Of Faith And Devotion is one Any better 'eye-opening' protest albums than this? I don't think so...

My favourite band, for many reasons...




  • Simple Minds



Though this runs Songs Of Faith And Devotion close, in its' intirety Another classic, with some exceptionally euphoric songs Climaxing with the original The Floating World instrumental I've reinterpreted

My second-favourite band, for just as many reasons...




  • a-ha




An all-time classic A sadly overlooked classic, with some exceptionally euphoric songs A heavyweight best-of - possibly the best ever

My third-favourite band, with the greatest male voice ever recorded, at least, in my opinion!




  • New Order



Another monster compilation, the Confused Instrumental is a classsic remix Probably their best album to date An interesting tribute CD

Another favourite band, with some briliant remixes produced for them




  • Talk Talk


My favourite Talk Talk album, with a euphoric climax Yet another monster compilation Subtle classic rock at its' very best

Yet another favourite band, let down badly by their remixes...




  • Some other compilations...


Some brilliant 12" single mixes in this series of CD compilations, retro:active2 being the best A timeless classic, Nick Magnus and Chris Cozens' The Synthesizer Album is an outstanding recreation of contemporary instrumental electronic masterpieces And one of the best compilations to date of comtemporary music, moods brings together tracks that virtually no label would dare release today, as well as some popular favourites (Crockett's Theme, Orinoco Flow and Chariots Of Fire) The best of the Ministry Of Sound's TRANCE NATION mix sets; this one mixed by Judge Jules in 2004 And another 2004 gem, this time courtesy of one-half of Black Strobe: Ivan Smagghe

Some other golden compilations...




  • And some fresh talent...


Worth the price of the CD alone, Example's 2011 smash hit Changed The Way You Kissed Me is a monster! Proving that electronic music and a live drummer has a place in quality music, Pendulum's 2010 Immersion is also a monster, with some very catchy songs And 2011 again, Michael Cassette proves you can can reinterpret Crockett's Theme in a dance-electronic genre

And some very welcome fresh, new talent...
