If you want quality, grab anything on the Renaissance label, anything by Deep Dish, Global Underground, BT, Gatecrasher, or for more popular type house, any of the Ministry of Sound Annuals / Guide To... series. Been listening a bit lately to Armand Van Helden's new stuff, he's not a bad old spinner for a Seppo..
The Renaissance cd's rock esp with Dave Seaman. God's Kitchen is cool too. Chill out sessions are ok. Prob with most Ministry of sound stuff is they churn it out so quick. Always listen to it before u buy it. No headaches if u d/l it tho.
Breaks the album 4(the latest yellow Ministry of sound one) sucks hard. Avoid it.The older Fuzzy Breaks Vol 1 is cool. Its more club friendly stuff. Breaks the album 3 (red) is good. Kid Kenobi, Q45, Krafty Kuts are cool.
Most of my stuff I listen to is on vinyl.
Its all hardcore,industrial, breakcore noisey heavy shit. Try Dj Tron, Syndicate, Overcast, Dan Doormouse, Animal intelligence. http://www.majesticstore.com/12-inch...re-techno.html
That website has all styles + you can hear samples of the music. Check the other genres out for what you're interested in.
Hard NRG is ok but its the wanky dj's like Nick Skitz ruin it. Wild mixes and Skitz mixes etc are
Download if you must but don't pay for them.
For hard trance get a copy of Pharmacy Vol 1 : Harder darker dirtier. That cd is awesome. For artists look up Uberdruck, ASYS, Kai Tracid, Drugface etc. The Transmission cd's are good too.
. They have a forum there for music.
