Quotes: DJ Linus’ ‘Bar-B-Q’ is the perfect example of just why we’re going to have to eradicate ‘ruthless’ and ‘clinical’ from our dictionary of German cliches. Musik / Bloody great. Mixmag / There are eight tracks of breadth and depth that would make the most adept of swimmers think twice before diving in, but dive you should…indispensable and useful collection if tracky treats. Fantastique. Update / Top quality house action. Jockey Slut
Info: DJ Linus’ newest 12inch and maxi-CD, “Soul Penetration”, is truly a catchy deephouse-song; you can’t help but humming it right after the first listening! The clear sound of the flute underlines the male singer’s sexy bedroom voice. “Worldleague” on the B-side is a great track with latinbeats and pumping dub. The track is dedicated for the club called “Heizkraftwerk” in Munich. If “Star Wars” would have been produced in 1998, it would have sounded like “Worldleague”! The discosounds in “Rollercoaster” hurl you back to the Eighties. This 12inch is certainly a further proof of DJ Linus’ musical diversity! In the beginning of February 1999 the vinyl “Soul Penetration” was on German Club Charts number 12 and on German Dance Charts number 19!
