Acid Underworld

A scenario unfolds on the grid... Lost in the caves, navigating 303 stalactites in flux and bathed in echoes of The Airplane, Stargate rising onna vector plane and the spectral breeze coarsing through lava flows deeper still. Underworld deep in the cut, another remix tripping out into the k-hole, wild fractals spiral off the jet … Continue reading Acid Underworld

Compass Point Carolina

The memory of trees... palm trees and plantains, y todo lo demás. Down at Punta La Bandera circa 1987, the sound of percussion pulsing through the palms, people dancing on the promenade to the rhythms of Compass Point (or a reasonable facsimile thereof), bass/synths/guitar melt together and glow like neon in the darkness, sketched against … Continue reading Compass Point Carolina

Yellow Sunshine

Groove, groove, groove, groove with the colour... Down on the boulevard, caught between the heatwave and the afternoon haze, Hotwax Whiskey River on the pavement, the dusted stomp of New Kingdom's Paradise Don't Come Cheap, The 45 King, and traces of Link Wray's Fat Back pulsing through the bone dry breeze. Lost beneath the dull … Continue reading Yellow Sunshine

It's a 12" of Scorpio by Grandmaster Flash & The Furious Five, but this copy had a different vocal version on the flip! Kid Creole, Cowboy and Melle Mel were trading … Continue reading Scorpio

Club Cannibal

Have You Seen The Stars Tonite Back from the red light disco and lost in the Lakeside Discothèque, where the pulse moves rhythms like packets across radio waves, Reese & Santonio records blurred in the sun-glazed mirages of dusty El Cajon heat. Flowing down the slipstream from progressive Detroit and the days when Ken Collier … Continue reading Club Cannibal

Hip Hop Blues

B-Boys wander solitary on the streets of Chiba City How can I be sure in a world that's constantly changing? Maxinquaye and Bristol, dragging breakbeats and bass from the dark side, dubbed-out shadows within and traces of the jungle bizzness in the mix. Mtume on the neon plane, slow-motion boogie equations drawn up in the … Continue reading Hip Hop Blues
