Ramadanman - Humber (2009)

More Ramadanman and perhaps my favourite release from him. This is where things start to get interesting as far as I'm concerned. I'm not going to say this lightly, but this is perhaps a genre defining release. Reminds me of Chicago house/techno producer Eddie Flashin Fowlkes in places mixed together with a rather hypnotic 2 step arrangement. All good.

Tracklisting:

1. Humber
2. Humber (Sven's Rumber Remix)

Ramadanman - Carla (2008)

Ramadanman is North Londoner David Kennedy. Another one of these young kids who has spent all his time on Fruity Loops and in doing so has forged a unqie style all of his own. To me it embraces the dubstep sound with tech and minimal sensibilities. Shit, I like all those genres and hearing his stuff the past few weeks I've been really impressed.

This release appears on Soho based record store Soul Jazz Record's own imprint and first appeared back in 2008. This particular release combines the grime sound more so than others but all 3 tracks float my boat.

Tracklisting:

1. Carla
2. Offal

Tis' the season of longhaul flying...

Hello all. I'm going to post a couple of tunes today and then I'll need to wrap up for 2009. This Saturday I'm off to Sweden for Christmas via Singpore, London and Copenhagen. 30 odd hours of travel hell.

I'll be settling into life at the in-laws (see picture below) before swinging through London for a few days, where I hope to catch up with a few of you, before another testing journey all the way back to New Zealand in the 2nd week of January.


Thanks to everyone who has supported the blog over the past year. There's been a few peaks and troughs I know as far as my postings are concerned. I've also had to grapple with work and family life commitments but I'll keep ripping and posting in 2010.

Wishing you all a safe and Merry Christmas.

Carry on.

Tone.

The Black Dog - Further Vexations (2009)

The Black Dog was formerly the trio of Ken Downie, Ed Handley, and Andy Turner, also known at the time as Black Dog Productions. Ed and Andy left to pursue their Plaid project, Ken continued with several different line ups of Black Dog before choosing to work with Martin and Richard Dust from Dust Science Recordings after a long break from the music scene.

Released back in April of this year I've only discovered this about 2 weeks ago. It has been on constant rotation ever since. Absolutely love it, got everything from minimal, to techno to Brian Eno'esque ambient soundscapes which are truly amazing. Really does remind me of another Soma artist Vector Lovers on places, which is all good.

From their website:

Further Vexations is our artistic response to 21st century rat on your neighbour smokefree Britain. It is an attempt to capture and express our emotional frustrations, and the trials and tribulations of living in an un-democratic surveillance society.

The seeds of nihilist despair and apathy are well and truly sown amongst the citizens of Airstrip One. We've helplessly watched with mounting horror, while the government trashed the country, signed away its sovereignty to Brussels (with a flourish of a specially minted silver pen), sold off precious national industries and assets at next to bargain basement prices, and indulged itself with two utterly pointless wars which it couldn't afford. We were promised a vote. A referendum. A chance to change things but an unelected politician chancellor man decided not to bother. To say we are pissed off about it, would be an understatement.


We might just have a late challenger for the best electronic album for 2009.

1. Biomantric L-if-e
2. 0093

Paul Kalkbrenner - Tatü-Tata (2005)

Paul Kalkbrenner has been one of my favourite techno producers for a while now. If you get the chance I really recommend watching his movie 'Berlin Calling'. The soundtrack is a collection of Paul's productions over the past few years on Bpitch Control. The tune Gebrünn Gebrünn just always does it for me. Just builds effortlessly and features the very clever use of a vocal sample by soul and funk group 20th Century Steel Band. Sounds unlikely but it really does work wonders.

1. Gebrünn Gebrünn

Quarks - Allein (2003)

Discovered Quarks about 4 or so years ago on an Ellen Allien Berlin compilation and immediately fell it love with their sound. The track I first heard was Königin. Made up of Jovanka von Willsdorf and Niels Lorenz they produced a few albums and split while recording their 3rd apparently. Lyrics are all in German (a few in Japanese as well) but get past that and the music, arrangements and the mood is second to done. I can't get enough of their stuff but the cost of their singles are steep to say the least. I'm going to post a remix album as well which took me farking ages to find.

This single includes remixes by Sascha Funke and Swayzak.

Liquid - Culture (1995)

Another mixed bag to serve you'll up tonight as I continue to delve deeper into the boxes in the basement.

First up is from 1995, the album from Liquid who's rave hit 'Sweet Harmony' arguably defined a rave era back in 1991. Spread over 2 vinyl it's pretty reminiscent of where UK club music was in the mid 90's. It was a time of cross roads I remember quite vividly. On the right you had house, popular style that is, and on your left you had trance being driven my the Frankfurt scene and German labels like Eye-Q, and somewhere in-between there was techno. I still find it kind of sad that the scene had to splinter and all the pigeon holing of electronic music that came after it.

There's some real house tunes in here complete with both male and female vocals. There's also a hint of trance in a few of them and my favourite Liquid tune 'Liquid is Liquid', although the version on the album has been remixed by Red Jerry, aka Mr Hooj Choons.

Tracklisting:

1. Liquid Love
2. Snowstorm
3. One Love Family (Your Teeth In My Neck)
4. Rise
5. Closer
6. Phase

Untold - Gonna Work Out Fine EP (2009)

This 6 track release has honestly blown me away. Untold has somehow taken the elements and sound of Chicago house and fused it together with UK dubstep and grime. But that's not all really, there's constant reminders of other genres of past ages coming through. Tracks like 'Never Went Away' take me back to 1991. It truly is an amazing EP. There's a lot being said about this double 12" vinyl at the moment and in my mind it's totally justified. Enjoy.

Tracklisting:

1. Gonna Work Out Fine
2. Stop What You're Doing
3. Don't Know. Don't Care.

5. No One Likes A Smart-Arse

New Order - The Peter Saville Show Soundtrack (2003)

From Wikipedia:

The Peter Saville Show Soundtrack is an EP released by New Order in 2003. It was produced to accompany a Peter Saville exhibition, The Peter Saville Show, which appeared at London's Design Museum in 2003.

Peter Saville was a partner in Factory Records and a graphic designer who designed many record sleeves for Joy Division and New Order throughout their careers at Factory Records. The exhibition included this artwork and other graphic design from Saville's ongoing career.

Although The Peter Saville Show Soundtrack is credited to New Order, only New Order members Stephen Morris, Peter Hook and Phil Cunningham were involved in producing the music- Bernard Sumner was not present for the recording.

Moderat - Seamonkey (2009)

Wasn't terribly impressed this morning when my new vinyl version of this arrived all the way from Portugal just to have a dirty great big farking scratch across the cover and also at the beginning of the A side. It's been happening a lot more recently as I use different suppliers on Discogs, some are so truly farked it's a wonder how they can possibly have so much stock that is in such dire condition. Anyway, my vinyl version is unplayable and I'm stuck with it now. Still not as bad as 5 records which arrived recently, all of them warped. So, Moderat -Seamonkey: I was forced to buy an MP3 version so here it is.

Slip - Melisma EP (2005)

I was given this record back in 2005 and although I listened to it a few times my head wasn't really in this kind of space. I continued to receive promos from Perception Records, based in Leed, and it was their artist Dopekick that I leaned more towards. I just found this today and listened to it all over again and loved it. It's somewhere between trip-hop, jazz and glitch. It's a real eclectic electronic mix but with a lot of sensibilities hidden in there. It really does deserve a few listens.

Paul Hartnoll feat. Robert Smith - Please (The Remixes) (2007)

My all things Orbital obsession continues. Forgot I had this white label from a few years ago. Features The Cure front man Robert Smith on vocals. I remember the reviews of this a few years ago, most didn't like it but it's not that bad really. A couple of more dance friendly remixes on the B side but the Paul Hartnoll 'Remember 1992?' remix, as the title suggest, is the one that takes it back to the Orbital rave days.

LCD Soundsystem - All My Friends (2007)

One of those tunes that popped up randomly the other day through what I reckon is probably the greatest music discovery tool of the past 100 years, the humble 'shuffle'. I forgot how great the Franz Ferninand version is. I've never gone out my way for FF and it's kind of ironic that the tune I like of theirs most isn't theirs. Love the original too, and I see we can expect a new album from James Murphy & co. early 2010.

Now for the next post: Probably the first dupstep vinyl I ever bought (I think) after hearing the 'South London Boroughs' EP back in 2005. The 4th release on Hyperdub Records and still one of my favourite Burial tunes. Still love this guys sound and am eagerly awaiting a new album.

Laurie Anderson - O Superman (1982)

I remember seeing the video for this tune when I was around 11 or so. It was quite disturbing, so was her video for the awesome tune 'Sharkey's Day'. It seems it's one of those tunes that has always been there, a beacon for electronic music of sorts. I've heard a number of remixes, in various styles but nothing comes close to the original in my opinion. I've got a ton of Laurie Anderson records here, so if there's an appetitie for the avant-garde just raise your hands and I'll put more up.

The Emperor Machine - Space Beyond The Egg (2009)

I was put onto The Emperor Machine a few months back. Now this is the 3rd album but the first I've listened to. Turns out the guy behind it all is Staffordshire-based Andy Meecham, the guy behind the early 90's rave act Bizarre Inc and more recently house production outfit Chicken Lips. This though is all about vintage analogue synthesizers, reminds me a lot in parts of John Carpenter's style in Escape from New York or more recently Frenchman Principle of Geometry. It really has started to grow on me, particularly in the last few days. Perhaps it's just a phase?

Shackleton - 3 EPs (2009)

This guy has got be hooked at the moment and this album has been on constant rotation for the last week, in particular "Mountains Of Ashes". You need this in your life:

From Last.fm:

Co-ran Skull Disco with Appleblim. Shackleton’s unconventional take on big basslines and complex beats doesn’t fit into easy categories and that’s how it’s going to stay. Shackleton has been carving out his own brand of eclecticism on Skull Disco releases so far with intricate, snaking percussion, hypnotic melodies, seriously deep bass lines and dubwise sensibilities.

2. Let Go

Röyksopp - This Must Be It (2009)

A silly amount of remixes really, it's not as if you're going to sit down and listen to all of them in one go. Of course it's the Apparat remix for me. But there's a real broad range of styles going on here, and it's probably best for you all to decide for yourself. What I will say is that this is a better single release than their last efforts "Happy Up Here'. All is starting to be redeemed for Röyksopp. Enjoy.

Christian Burkhardt - Toolpool EP (2009)

I discovered Christian Burkhardt last year when he released the Doubledub EP which then sent me on a personal crusade to hunt down everything he's done. It's percussion driven house music basically.

Fedaden - Broader (2009)

I was put onto this guy by a guy I know on Last.fm (Cheers Joel! :) He's got very good taste in music I might add) Knowing my passion for all things Apparat he recommended I hunted down this album by Frenchman Fedaden. It's a real mixed bag at first, I struggled to get my head around it but it's all started to make sense lately. There's touches of filtered house from the influence of Daft Punk through to melodic chords by M83. Yeah, of course it's also a bit glitchy techno in places, and it will most probably annoy the hell of people who are tone deaf around you, but that aside, I absolutely love it. Particularly the tracks 'Broader', 'The Perfume' & 'Music Box'.

Over the past week or so I've been going through a Modeselektor phase again. They just released a new mix for Get Physicial Records and they included a track from Boy 8 Bit's first and only EP to date. It's all good and similar to Modeselektor's own production style.

Echopark presents No More - Suicide Commando (1998)

11 years ago I found this gem discarded in a sale bin in Notting Hill. I bought it on the fact that Thorsten Stenzel had co-produced it and hoped it was one of his less popular house type tunes. Phil Fuldner was also involved in the production and he also makes some interesting stuff at times. Anyway these two Germans have taken the old song recorded by No More in 1981 and made it something very special. I did a little digging around and the original tune is rare and also quite a cult classic, (this record itself it worth over £30 now @ Discogs, such a nice feeling to have paid a quid for it and had one over those anorak, know-all types that use to hangout behind the counter at Reckless Records) so much so that there's a website set up in its honor, check it here and enjoy the A side of this.

The Pump Panel - Confusion (1995)



Loved this review in discogs, kind of says it all really:

"Featured in the movie BLADE. This is a really dirty little nugget of blood-drenched acid techno, just the way I like it. A long tune, minimal and hypnotic with a massive breakdown/build up, a great bit of distorted 303 action and top quality (heavily vocoded) vocals from New Order. Play on a gig soundsystem at high volume and high speed for maximum effect. Not suitable for vegetarians."

1. Confusion (Reconstruction Mix)
2. Confusion (Floatation Mix)

Timo Maas feat. MC Chickaboo - Shifter (2002)

Have always been a fan of Timo Maas ever since his more harder techno days in the mid to late 90's. Took a different path and embraced breaks and progressive more than most and was soon the darling of the DJ scene. This was at his popular heights and features the vocals of MC Chickaboo who has done stuff on loads of underground drum'n'bass, house, garage, breaks, the list goes on and on.

Tracklisting:


1. Shifter (Full Vocal Mix) (5:34)
2. Shifter (Scanty Mix) (7:45)

James Holden - One For You (2001)

Just jump straight to the Oliver Klein remix and make sure that your sub woofer is on for maximum effect. I've played this in clubs before and watched shit shake. Still sounds as offensive as it always did.

Tracklisting:

1. One For You (Brancaccio & Aisher Suicide Sports Dub) (9:49)
2. One For You (Oliver Klein Remix) (9:03)

Joy Division - She's Lost Control / Atmosphere (1980)

Can't really say much about this one only that it still gives me goose bumps. If you cant appreciate it for the genius which is Ian Curtis and Martin Hannett you're probably on the wrong blog.

1. She's Lost Control

LCD Soundsystem - Losing My Edge (2002)

How fucking good is this tune?! I mean, this is genius from James Murphy and every time I listen to the lyrics they just make me smile. If anyone wants to hear an example of electro clash done well then play this to them. This is the benchmark in my world, and no one has come close since. Love it.

When In Rome - The Promise (1987)

Now a couple of weeks ago I posted the old Ultravox tune and I'm thinking that Nolan over at Castles In Space is going to like this one too. Was used in the film Napoleon Dynamite back in 2004 and at which stage reminded me how much I use to love it back in 1988.

And please be sure to check out Mr Micron's blog please, one of my favourites and a lot more reliable than me in updating shit. Thanks for all the support dude.
