WAS IN THE SHOP THIS EVE, AT OUR ABDUL HAQQ SHOW, AND WAS ASKED FEW TIMES (CHEERS), WHEN I’D BE DOING ANOTHER BLOG… THAT I’D REMEMBER. I SAYS, WELL MAYBE I’LL JUST POST SOME OF THOSE NINETEEN UMPTEEN HALF WRITTEN DRAFTS THAT NEVER MADE THE POST BUTTON…UNTIL NOW. HERE’S ONE, FROM YEAR OR MORE AGO. .. WHICH INCLUDES SOME CHAT ABOUT SPIDERS.. AND OTHER SHITE.
Ok it’s Friday night oblique Saturday morning, and I’m listening to records that I want to share with the world. (or at least the 10 people that will read this). If I actually hit the post button, and it doesn’t land up in the ‘drafts’ abyss with so many others. If you are reading this though…. you will have to kill yourself, your computer will self destruct in.. 10, 9.. come back to that.. or worst case scenario, you will have to carry on reading.
I’m going to try and be as brief as possible.. few tunes, few pictures, and few words (no shite talk.. no back stories etc.) I’ll do my best. On the deck right now is a Likemind Record. 03. Redcell – the Silicon Garden.. ahh beautiful proper subtle and classic UK Techno from the days of yore… but that’s not why we’re here. Although I can’t take it off, it’s that good. Beautiful Techno. The Tura track on the other side was ‘big’ for us back in the day. Shit just seen it’s from 1995. That’s been a quick 20 years. Aye, Likemind – timeless Techno. Only had 4 releases on it I think.. Paul Smith was the chaps name who’s label it was, who we had up to DJ about the same time. I often wonder what happened to some of my musical visionaries from years gone by, and what they are doing now…Maybe I should try get on that Internet a bit more.
Anyway.. I’m away down the back story tip, and the records ran out.. here’s a picture. And we’ll move on..
On to here.. and I’m getting listening to some more ‘current’ hits. Tomorrows Music Today ! Or yesterday’s music next week.. doesny really matter does it. As long as it’s good. And who’s the judge of that ? …. You ! I’m just sharing what I’m listening to just now.. doesn’t mean to say it’s good. But aye, to me .. just now.. fuckin brilliant !
Busen – Double Pack. Sides A – C, sound like an insect horror film. From the insects perspective ! Like all the spiders heading down on a Saturday night to watch Arachnophobia. Well the soundtrack to their film. Or even the snakes all pishing themselves laughing at Sam L Jackson in ‘Humans on a Plane’. Somewhere in between. Insect-rep-tech. But then Side D.. now that’s a tune you can play anywhere. Whatever your species. Roof off the hive job.
Another through the fett distribution channels that u should get is the Laton-62. I’ve had a test of this for soooo long…. that I’ve waxed about it’s brilliance more than once on this blog shit. It’s been a while in the waiting… Future Killa was written on the sleeve..
Didn’t think would be sooo Future. Now I like to have a wee exclusive record here and there, but really you want to share music to those that appreciate it. It’s been a while, but it’s not like its a record that’s ‘on trend’. He could have waited 10 years to put it out.
Oh aye, Future Killa, Tomorrow’s music Today .. and just so happen’s that these next 3 are all from Glasgow labels. Not intentional, and I didn’t actually realise that til now. But they are the records I’m listening to now. Watch out for these mofo’s.
ISLE-001 – Glasgow, Distributed by us, and is a BELTER Is all I know.
FD001 – Glasgow, Ian Martin, Andy Gilbert, Distributed by us, Good. Is all I know
UH004 – Ultimate Hits. (First you think it’s shite, then you think it’s good). Label name that is. Music – Proper Techno. Loving this record. Can’t quite remember who’s label this is..Taskmaster… or maybe Slimfaster, or something like that, but I know it is from Glasgow and it is good !
And last but not least… never has that phrase been so true… here’s a wee insight into a cheeky wee monster that we’ll be shipping to stores very soon.. and a belter it is too.
