V/vm slaughter pop idol. watch out for their queen mother tribute record!
I used to want this played at my funeral. The Buttholes remain shocking almost 15 yrs after the fact.
From bytes, the first black dog album .
Token R & B track, one of timbalands finest productions
The b side to *space invaders are smoking grass*, electro of the finest quality.
Multi-talentented Cuban Lalo Schifrin doesn't carry the same impact for me as he did in the mid-90s.
Sleazy electro hip-hop, heavy on character like Kitty-Yo cohorts Gonzales and Peaches
Ridiculous 60 surf pop. Criminally overlooked until Kubrick dug it out to soundtrack the US incursion of Saigon. How apt. The resonance of the lyrical content is remains an overlooked feature.
Insidious genius. Love the contrast of a teasingly familiar melody surfacing from a muddy barbiturate-house grind, so unexpected. What a name! the stray 'e' on the end of funk makes all the difference.
Kid 606's Missy abberation, note the sample that ghosts in towards the end.
Spangly beat genius. The raw mixing makes this all the more impressive.
Cheery pop fluff from another Kitty-Yo Canadian
Evil Twin pays his respects. Respek!
2-step isn't like the genre I'd pick to express a love of tha herb. Frenetic and desperate, this carries the feel of uber-skunk psychosis. As Stickys beats get simpler his MC get more outragious. But the 'Chili Peppers' quote is beyond the pale.
Krystal is the basic schematic Autechre laid down over a decade ago. Bastardized, dislocated, deformed... but remincent, almost nostalgic.. it's the echo of N.Y.C. block parties, still resonating in the next millenium.
Classic ragga bounce and flex, Cutty struts between the edgy Kingston street corners and the safety of a sleepy ska riddim. Just how much of an influence have tracks like this been on Timbaland and Squarepusher?
Staunch electro boogie, Charles Manier's live percussion and raw effects echo disco, without losing the neon edge of the early 80s future. Like hard-drives never happened. Electro-pop fluff or mis-placed classic? You decide......
Weatherall and Tenniswood demonstrate the subtleties of strings with an electro shiver. Almost a sub-aquatic Boards of Canada.
And what an almighty hook it is! More Dirty South styles from the Dungeon Family/Crowd. Hyper-rap with data stream flo from all the usual suspects....
*TokTok - ZokZok* - Banging indie-house pop from the Missy Softy people. Insouciant vocals under hammering hand claps and throbbing filter action - wayhey!!!
Sleepwalking northern hip-slop. Taking down the bling-bling giants (and Jamie Oliver) with his slag heap flow - No contest. Forget *the Streets*, this is from *the pits* Dance like a slug, Sting like a hangover
America’s favourite troubled-teen delivers a vitriolic state-of-the-nation over a raw rock beat – a narcissistic all-in-one Public Enemy for white kids....
One for the ladieeez. Prowling 2-step vocod-orgy with a slinky Kingston twang and that almighty Genius Crew MC. Strictly disposable - but there's nothing wrong with that.
Dippa's explosive Bhangra bling is unstoppable and raw. A insistent hip-pop mash with an eastern dazzle.
An exotic 4th World excursion with Brian Eno and David Byrne from My Life with in Bush of Ghosts.
Neil Olivierras effervescent electronica is an aural tour of his beloved Detroit, his transparent techno almost sounds like machines breathing.
Matthew Patterson Currys shattered dub got lost on last years Click-Hop compilation. This match of bass stutter and 2-step sparkle hardly gets on its feet before he tries to smash the groove. Prismatic funk.
Out-there Atlantians Outkast pay Sly Stone his due with this ballad of sing-song reminiscences, another *Miss Jackson* if that’s what youre after.
Complete saccharine pop music, with a avalanches like retro flavour..
A completely blunt peice of booty bass action, DETROIT!
Almighty suspensefull techno chunk!
Primal sleaze house from Perlon's Superlongevity compilation.
Irrepressible dub house. Can's drone groove with dub delay and a muted house sparkle - like underwater fileworks, I suppose. Shifting and uncertain, this track feels like dancing with your eyes closed...........
Familiar and unsettling in equal measure - this Spanish version turns the originals sentimentality into something far more alien.
Quasi-electro 80s Bhangra - insideous melody over loping funk - watch the tempo shift!
Wistful, elegant house, end of story.
Soporific synth bath, surging and ebbing over treacle tabalas, and then it’s gone. Another gem from Perlon.
Kool Keith and Dan the Automator - the team behind DR Octagon - reunited, on point, on form!
Apt tat, uploaded in the spirit of things. John Barnes' place in history is guaranteed - what a STAR! Really we should have a PNP re-mix with Sven at the helm and a Becks cameo. "We're singing for In-ger-land. IN-GER-LAND. Ariva-derchi, it's one on one"
Sultry, grinding sub-continent sampling RnB hip-pop featuring Rakim.
G-funk for the second generation.
Both a shimmering guitar triumph and agonised indie regret-athon. Old formula, great song.
L'usine, melody based electronica of the finest standard, well worth checking out all his other stuff as well.. '
Live studio threesome, RnB and Hip-Hop jump into bed with each other, officially. Lewd, distasteful, etc...
Acid throb from prolific part-time genius Thomas Brinkmann... cue extensive back catalogue excursion.
Diaphanous deutsch pop fluff.
Serious disco from M.R.I. from All That Glitters album on Forcetracks - Strident, surging, yet somehow still spangly HAUS.
Tommorrow's sounds yesterday - the late Delia Derbyshire will never be forgotten.
