I've been really enjoying the Ghost Box/Belbury Poly sound the last couple of years and, between that and all the Japanese new-age stuff that's been posted here recently, just thought I'd go straight for the source. So crank up the VAALUUUME and let this bad boy rip:
i still have a ton of on-un sound 12"s, tackhead/barmy army/mark stewart/gary clail, etc. all sounded so mental and in-yr-face back then. listening now, some of it isn't quite as harsh as i remembered, and then tackhead got signed to a major label and put out some slicker dross. still respect sherwood, tho, singers & players and creation rebel ("starship africa") are pretty great roots and spacey dub too.
I'm sorry Hamlet, I'm going to stop you right there. How do I get to see Omar S playing music like this on a beach in Napoli this year? THAT is the question.
I've always dreamed of establishing myself a DJ playing exclusively this type of house, but I don't even know what this type of house really is. Early 90's deep house? It's one of the few types of house music I will be unable to resist bopping to in public.
