Clone to release unheard EP from Drexciya side project Abstract Thought
Clone is putting out an EP of unreleased tracks from the Drexciya project Abstract Thought.
The three-track 12-inch, the latest in Clone's Drexciya-focused Aqualung Series, features music from the same session that resulted in the 2003 Abstract Thought album Hypothetical Situations. The record first appeared during Amsterdam Dance Event and will receive a wider release on December 9th.
I think what really separates drexciya out from most techno/electro I've heard is the emotional mood their music creates. The combination of the sorts of sounds they use and the harmonics, it's (to be cliched about it) an alien sound, where you get glimpses of human beauty/emotion coming through but all filtered through this dry, brittle, elegant, alien soundgridfasfkanfklns.
worst tune no idea why its famous. check live at liquid room tokyo 1995 thats good. my techno listening is pretty much defined by him, cos he was playing out at the time i was going out. i saw him at sonar 2001 and some cheerleaders came out. in this huge expo hall thing. so packed and everyone fucked and happy. there was a little spanish guy who had a small chair and everyone got to have a go standing on it. someone had a slash on the dancefloor and no-one gave a fuck. was surreal.i don't really listen to him anymore, but that CD was a goodun. my mate lent it me and i lent i lost it, he had to buy it again.
