11) Miles Davis - Rated X
Of course none of the 80s avant-funkateers came close to what miles did here. but what interests me more than the merger of north african sensibility with raga and stockhausen is how the guitar is dislodged from even approximating something vaguely resembling melody. if we're making a case for techno, it has to start here, first and foremost. the guitar as tone making instrument. rithing tentacles. and everyone knows how the droning organ and drums endorse memories of the most frenzied amphetamine psychosis.
16) Degrees of Motion - Do You Want it right now (Kingstreet mix)
See I got bored of this one very quickly but what you've written here is interesting.
And the Remarc tune immediately afterwards is amazing.
Si, you heard more of that atomhead type experimental speedcore? neurocore and la peste are other producers to check out as well as the michelson sisters...
no it's all unfamiliar stuff to me, the name La Peste rings a faint bell
when it's so fast i can't even conceive of a physical response to it then i'm a bit befuddled
It's post-physical isn't it. you can certainly mosh to it or sort of jump around at half time house tempo but really it's just all going on at the subperceptual level. the kickdrums aren't even kickdrums anymore, they just serve as yet another arsenal in the nanotechnological attack. true psychedelic overload music imo.
