Although it goes without saying that the black dog completely bossed this style when they went there. still give this album a listen at least 3 times a year. probably the best techno album ever, precisely because none of it is exactly orthodox detroit techno, even the stuff with the most detroity cords.


you wouldn’t hear this at Ritzy though, if you factor out the 15 pints come on then oh no I love you really mate bs mixed with student fusion the realm disintegrates, agree it contains inherently monstrous war crimes

Mixmaster Morris end of set tracks are more like some of your last picks, tipping into Weatherall

15 pints with russian pingers does the trick though, proper spiralling vortex.

gangnam style at 8 am is pretty traumatic though. if you want to have a bad trip, do that. never thought a bog standard pop dance song could do that, but it did one nyd. maybe cos i hadn't had anything but two pastries for three days though, who knows. everything just sounded lower in pitch.

Not so much a bad trip comprising bad hallucinations (I was still sort of euphoric) so much as everything being so amplified in my perceived volume and whenever glasses were swapped about I thought they were being smashed. basically unable to sleep. a strange, strange afters.

The icy Canadian cousin to all this, Len (of Steal My Sunshine fame)'s first album is a masterpiece of late shoegaze blended with suburban white rap aesthetics and a softcore rhythmic undercarriage:

that is a nice idea. i think this stuff I'm talking about actually fits better the Finney coinage - because the softness in the hardcore/jungle/UK garage is woven inextricably with the tuffness - you'll have a gorgeous lover's rock or soul vocal and then some raspy murder-him-gon-kill-im type ragga vocal but also a bit of orchestration from a film soundtrack or jazz fusion but then ruff breaks and bass Although there is a lighter dolphin-y smooth grooving kind of thread through the nuum as well.


pfm - one and only, incredible softcore nuum. the best, really. just the way that bass undulates is pendulum perfection. of course that dopey brexitbrain cunt Luka will hate it. :D 😂
