Aphex Twin – We Are The Music Makers
25th November, 2008 | 463 views

Audio clip: Adobe Flash Player (version 9 or above) is required to play this audio clip. Download the latest version here. You also need to have JavaScript enabled in your browser.

Continuing with the Aphex Twin, his own work this time. My favourite track from Selected Ambient Works 85-92; the spongy, slightly squelchy bass and the sample of Gene Wilder from Charlie And The Chocolate Factory.

We are the music makers
And we are the dreamers of dreams

The Gentle People – Journey

Ease into Monday with the Aphex Twin Care Mix of Journey by The Gentle People. Hopefully the below mantra doesn’t describe your day in the office, as you stare listlessly into space with a Thousand-yard Stare working for The Man but instead offers a time-out inside your head. I’m a sucker for strings and it has them aplenty, a hallucinogenic tide that by the end carries you along on a swell of sound.

This trip is an endless story
We’re taking you on a journey

Abacus – We Cookin’ Now

I think this was the first record that I bought on the then fledgling Guidance Recordings label which in it’s first fifty or so releases, heralded the beginning of a new wave of deep house productions in the latter part of the nineties. An ear catching feast of deep vibes mixed with edible lyrics.

Something smells good, we cookin’ now!

Young MC – Know How

Let’s kick Friday off with this monster Shaft sampling hiphop track from 1988. My hiphop collection is rather pathetically small but this climbed aboard the Pink vinyl train, made a beeline for the jacuzzi in the first class carriage and caused a big splash.

Some of the busiest rhymes ever made by man
Are goin’ into this mic, written by this hand
Are comin’ out of this mouth, made by this tongue
I’ll tell you now my name, my name is Young

Dâm-Funk – Burgundy City
19th November, 2008 | 571 views

Audio clip: Adobe Flash Player (version 9 or above) is required to play this audio clip. Download the latest version here. You also need to have JavaScript enabled in your browser.

Weekend before last I was at ck’s and he dropped this audio bomb on my ear lobes. Sounding like Mtume had decided to reform and release new material, ck introduced me to Dâm-Funk’s world. Ck and Keith have specialised more into hiphop than I ever have but their tastes mean they acquire material like this, boogie funk or modern-soul (whatever you want to call it), which I needs to get me into and stock up on.  It’s got that West Coast L.A. early eighties vibe thang goin’ on, totally nails it and I’m saying that despite not even visiting the States, let alone Los Angeles. On the flip side, you have the more uptempo but equally retro-sounding Galactic Fun, bringing to mind the productions of the Belgium outfit Spirit Catcher who forge a similar path with a love of eighties synths but more from a house angle.

Dâm purrrdy sleeve as well; released earlier this year but still widely available and h-h-hot, so grab a slice of this boogie pie and support the artist. Looking forward to checking out his forthcoming long player on Stones Throw in the new year.

ck’s all over it – he also played me this promo vid Dâm-Funk put together to publicize his Funkmosphere parties in L.A. – check out the sassy eighties vibezzz. When I eventually get to visit the States and hit L.A. I’ll definitely be visiting to hear all the black wax original pressings, analogue goodness, and to cut some shapes on the floor.

G.T.O. – Pure (Beautiful Mix)
5th November, 2008 | 306 views

Audio clip: Adobe Flash Player (version 9 or above) is required to play this audio clip. Download the latest version here. You also need to have JavaScript enabled in your browser.

A short mix but still enough time to induce feelings of peacefulness and tranquillity, more familiar to some for the techno rave Pure Energy mix on the A side which now sounds a little dated. Plan to incorporate this into an ambient mix in the near future.
