    Mellow vibes with this French fusion track from 1982 that popped up on shuffle today.
  2. Lush atmospheric D&B from 1998. Voyager - Apollo
  3. Still discovering quality Gwen Guthire jams. First there was Peanut Butter, Seventh Heaven and Padlock. It Should Have Been You is right up there with them!
  4. Listened to this at work this morning. Not quite my definition of Ambient music, but still some nice sounds. Cheers
  5. Been enjoying this slice of ambient electronica recently. Taken from this compilation. Anomali - Falling Foil

    Caught a bit of this funky goodness on Radio 6 today. Ezra Collective - Dark Side Riddim

    The Jazz Thread

    Been listening to it on a regular basis since and it's a very good LP. Couple of really strong tracks and the rest is all solid jazz/funk/fusion.
  8. I finished watching this yesterday. Was a little disappointed at the lack of closure, but otherwise I really enjoyed it. Lots of cool character designs and I dig the art style. Anything else look similar? Fingers crossed that we get a second season soon. Have you managed to find the OVA episodes?
  9. Not Anna Kournakova’s Smash Court Tennis! That was called Smash Court 2 in Japan. The original game had a Japanese and European release, but not a US release. The Japanese cover is this beautiful illustration: I remember having the PAL version back in the day and it played a nice game of tennis once you got used to the swing timings. I think I probably sold it on after picking up the sequel, but it appears to be quite rare now. I was playing the Japanese version yesterday, which I’ve had for some time but never actually put on. I’d forgotten that the game
  10. Recent discovery for me. Mr. Hermano - Free as the Morning Sun
  11. Well it seems the thing is knackered. I tried to reformat it on both a fat and a slim PS2 but it wouldn’t work. I booted up the game again and it offered to reformat my memory card before saving, but after doing so it forgot my save file and offered the same thing again and again. Never mind.
  12. Cool, I have a PS2 in the same box so I will try that later.
  13. Went to load an old save and the game (Fluid) said my file was corrupt, offering me the choice of delete/do not delete. Having checked in the system menu, the entire contents of the memory card appear to have vanished. Anything I can do or is the data lost to time?
  14. I bought a job lot of Electronica CDs from ebay recently, just working my way through them. This is an interesting compilation from 1998. A mix of styles, but mostly ambient/mood music. https://www.discogs.com/Various-Hybrids/release/316894 Copy & Paste of my review on Discogs. Some mostly ambient moods of varying styles and tempos. A couple of the tracks (3 and 7) I don't care for, which is a shame because this would otherwise be a great CD to have play in the background whilst working or reading. The two tracks by Sigma are the strongest on here - opener Sub
  15. Electro banger from 1984. Midway - Set It Out (Funky Breakdown Mix)
  16. The beat on this one from Adam F never drops where I expect it to. It’s the rhythmic pattern on the click sticks that throws me every time. And this trippy 4/4 track took me ages to suss out the rhythm.
  17. Two big Amen smashers from 95/96.
  18. You could always start a personal list, name it wanted, and add the master release to it. From there you can view matching items for sale and filter by format.
  19. A couple of recent discoveries: MIG 29 - MIG 29 (1991) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4oqqMbmIhkQ Off-Shore - I Can't Take The Power (1990)
  20. I grabbed that album from Bandcamp the last time it was reissued. A couple of good tracks on there, Rude Movements being my particular favourite - another sampled relic courtesy of Kenny Dope.
  21. Rozalla is probably more of a 20p record! I was talking about the Peanut Butter 12". I was happy to let it go as I have that remix on a Larry Levan compilation CD anyway. I'm not familiar with Vanilla Sound Corps, so I'll check it out. Thanks for the tip.
  22. A US SNES with the tabs removed to allow Japanese carts to fit is the simplest solution, but as you say, it is less aesthetically pleasing. I would imagine that Japanese games from Japan are cheaper than US games from the states?
  23. You can have a picture of it if you like. I was listening to that one because somebody messaged me on Discogs offering to buy it. I took some photos, gave it a listen, and am now £20 better off!
  24. Had a quick go on Requiem: SotN - played until I met the librarian. I used the quick save option at one point, but it took me back to the main menu and when I loaded my file again I was back at the last save room. Does it not work?
  25. Enjoyed reading this thread again over the weekend after the recent bump. I fired up the Castlevania Collection on the Switch, as that’s all I had to hand, but none of the games scratched the Symphony itch. As mentioned several times in the thread, Alucard’s movement is a pleasure in itself. Just checked the PS Store and the Rondo/SotN double pack is on sale - £5.59 until 2nd September. Will be buying that this evening. Bargain!
