    Afrohouse

    I know what you mean about long blends. I think they really really work with this music. I love that thing that a lot of the London DJs do where they'll tease snippets of a vocal tune for ages in a mix. Like playing the "come closer...come closer" section of that DJ jacko tune for a few minutes...

    Coil

    I'd say the live album, And the Ambulance Died in His Arms. Similar nocturnal autumnal feel to MTPITD. The collected solstice EPs as well, Moons Milk. Some very abstract stuff on there but beautiful song based stuff as well eg White Rainbow, beestings, the original version of amythyst...

    Yeah I thought they were just feckless layabouts without any drive but it turns out they're onto something

    the 2000s: worst era in recorded music?

    Yeah on a similar thing I'm coming to the conclusion that all London amapiano sets are pretty much identical. They're great (they are! THEY ARE!) but the DJs only play about 5 tunes

    Optimal listening conditions

    I remember listening to some vibracathedral orchestra type stuff last summer on mushrooms and it sounded incredible. A proper light bulb moment. That sort of music can sound really flabby and half baked when you're straight but it turns out that on the right drugs you can just dive in, and the...

    the 2000s: worst era in recorded music?

    Yeah I remember that there was a big to-do around the same time when people like Villalobos were playing old house records in their sets. It's seems mad that it was even remarked on now but I do remember message boards being like OMG RICARDO PLAYED LIL LOUIS! YouTube destroyed time innit. All...

    There's also records designed for a particular soundsystem right? Techno records that are made to sound good at berghain etc

    Optimal listening conditions

    I often wonder about how cafe oto types envisage their music being listened to. Like if you're one of those really hardcore improv types, how do you want /expect people to listen to at home? Are we just meant to stare at the wall / at the record sleeve when it's playing? I like doing really...

    the 2000s: worst era in recorded music?

    Well the only way we can answer this question is to ask -when was the golden age of corpsey? When was he at his peak? Are we living through it right now?

    we cycle through a series of selves

    I think having different selves is the simplest and most convincing attitude to have to explain what the fuck it is we're doing really. Like it's so common to look back on something you did, either yesterday or years ago and think "what was I doing? I don't understand why I did/ said that!". And...

    the 2000s: worst era in recorded music?

    See this is interesting to me because while I can totally see where you're coming from -and a lot of it WAS wallpaper- I still have a massive soft spot for a lot of this stuff, particularly kompakt In my head it's the last stand, really of truely modernist techno/house that wasn't interested at...
