v/a * Big Fuckin’ Beats (cd 2000 quintessence recordings)

A warning to start: the title promises more than you will get! BUT, regardless the absence of “big fuckin’ beats” this is a very nice compilation cd. As a matter of fact, there are some quite heavy beats to be heard, but mostly not in the ‘big beat’ vein and not “fuckin’ big”, but, just big.
Anyway, the techno on this compilation is quite extraordinary, or at least, of a manner that I haven’t heard very often. Sometimes you will hear techno in the vein of Speedy J (see cd review elsewhere), but most of the time you will hear somewhat minimal techno with beats comperable to those of Prodigy for example (that’s the only resemblance by the way). The cd is very varried and contains almost only very good tracks. Keeping in mind that it’s also mostly an original sounding form of techno, that makes a very nice compilation.

  1. ….. Someone gave to me that cd, he told me he knew I loved that kind of “strange music” so he bought it in Belgium for me and he brought to Spain where I enjoyied it like a authentic motherfucker. There is the coincidance that two days ago I listened again and I realized I lost the box, so I dont know anything about the tracks. Today I was looking for it and I found that review, that looked like made in 2000. WOW! Anyway, the cd it’s with some really big fucking beats and I think maybe it was modern for the moment it was made. I will thank the onwer of this site if he can send me the tracks. Thanks in advance and regards!
