Yup work safe or no, sometimes something gets you just right.

Right now its Impact USA by Orbital. What this track has is:
1. Excellent recording, sadly many are not, I want to love Ed Rush for instance but this is difficult because the recordings are not so good, more so even for Chemical brothers where the recording is just plain shit.
2. It has some lovely midrange info going on, a lot of the stuff that turns you on is up there just below the treble which could so easily rip yer ears off. I have this so loud at the moment I could cry.
3. Its sufficiently long enough to keep you interested but not so long you get a headache.
4. It has 'movements' 3 distinct areas that are different to the rest.

If you don't like dance, this won't turn you on, if you do it will.

What else in this style do I need in my life. Its quite old, 94 I think.

great track, from the album 'diversions'.

My absolute FAVOURITE Orbital track is from the album 'snivilisation' which is a track called 'forever'. The rest of the album isn't as good, but I rate this track even better than Impact USA, which I also really like a lot.

Outside of Orbital I feel less safe of making reccomendations, taste being so personal. Also, not knowing what you have already.

Here's a few..

BT - IMA
William Orbit
Underworld - Second Toughest in the infants
Crystal Method - Vegas
Hybrid - Wide Angle
Infected Mushroom - BP Empire
Kruder & Dorfmeister - DJ Kicks
Leftfield - Leftism
Shpongle - The Remixes


I love all of those, but they aren't all exactly like Orbital.. would be a bit boring if they were :)

Awesome ****ing?

It's sufficiently long enough to keep you interested but not so long you get a headache.

It has 3 movements, 3 distinct areas that are different to the rest.

By the way, the best dance track ever is of course Xpander by Sasha.

Bottle I have all but the first of them I will check it. Alex I will check it but ain't sasha house.

I really do not like house.

AlexG
10-08-07, 01:11 PM
It's house-ish, but it's not singy songy happy house that I know you really loathe. It's most like the BT mentioned above, which isn't surprising as one of the tracks on the BT album is a Sasha collaboration, but it's not so far removed from Wide Angle.

I honestly don't think you'd like it, but you should at least try.

Try out the first Kosheen album too.

God when you look at the start of the list it's a little embarrassing.

Then you have a nice dance music collection :D

BT is great, I also like 'ESCM'.

I had some more outlandish reccomendations too, but didn't know what you had already... I'd better keep those to myself just in case lol.

I've 'bleeped' the thread title as many folks read pfm from work and I'd much prefer it if thread titles didn't trip content monitoring software. I also know for a fact that many pfm folk have young kids and I'd like to keep the place as accessible to all as possible.

No worries. It's a difficult line to figure out to be honest - I'm reluctant to 'dumb down' but I want the site open to all in as many environments / locations as possible. I've started to bleep myself as I'm a bit of a foul mouthed **** on occasion.

That one is The Isness, Androgynous.

It has FSOL links, but not quite sure if its band members or a project or whatever. Not really dancey anyway, but I like it.

There is an amazing live version of Impact on one of the 3CD's in the 'Satan' set. In fact, all the stuff on that set is amazing. Also, the new CD compilation of Orbital's Glasto performances is excellent.

I think this is possibly the best album of dance music made. If you don't like this, you don't like the genre -

Amorphous Androgynous is FSOL is Isness. Same band members and slightly different sound to mainstream FSOL but I love em all.
The first Amorphous cd was Tales of Ephidrinia which kind of freaked me out as I'd heard so many of the samples used. Tangerine Dream and Edgar Froese as well as some clips from predator. All served to fry my then substance addled brain..........aah those were the days

More info HERE (http://www.secondthought.co.uk/fsol/) and a video live from the bestival HERE (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hqWQM6WgNLU)

Gary,

When you said Orbital - I thought of the track 'Hyperion' I think it's called, off the brown album. It's a classic. The rest of the album is not as good.

Johnny sorry but I never got Daft Punk.

Anex
13-08-07, 01:36 PM
The first Daft Punk LP is good. Maybe too housey in parts but mostly lots of cool sounds and monotonous beats.

garyi
13-08-07, 02:06 PM
I don't really like monotonous beats, or more accurately I like stuff without the shit. I found Daft Punk to have far to much shit in it. 'Around the world, Around the world' repeated 500 times, is bloody crap.

Dance music for me is usually ruined with voices making any kind of verbal sense. That should cut out most of the house crap as well.

Haha.

In terms of dance music, for me it's all about dubstep and grime right now.

On Dubstep check Youngsta's first dubstep all stars mix CD on Tempa for 2005 classics.

On grime, check Kano's the mixtape, Trim's Soul Food volume 1, Ruff Sqwad's Guns'n'Roses volumes 1 & 2 (can't get these in the shops, get them from ukrecordshop.com, juno etc.).

I still really love deep, chunky house... Ame, Bookashade, Trentemoller etc.

14-08-07, 03:33 AM
It's slightly off topic, but I can heartily recommend Richie Hawtin's DE9 series of cds on minus. Some of the other artist's mixes on his label aren't up to his standard, he really is the master. I haven't come across a single person who hasn't asked me what's playing when these are on, regardless of music taste.

I have to say I tired of Orbital's meandering wibbling very quickly once I discovered friday nights at club uk and jeff mills...

Autechre was always much more my thing really from the non-clubby electronica

For late night dubiness Rhythm & Sounds "the versions" is fantastic.

Might be worth going to juno.co.uk, whacking in your favourite albums and sampling some of those in the "customers also bought" section of the album details - I've spent hours trawling through mixes on there...

Whizzkid
18-08-07, 03:11 AM
Another Vote for Autechre, If you like a bit of melody strapped to fantastic mad beats Chiastic Slide is were to start, If you want to play it safe Amber's the Album and if you want to jump in at the deep end and like twisted uncomfortable beats Draft 7.30 is the Album to go for.

Bookashade and Dennis Ferrer for House music Stormers

For Dubstep try Skreams Album if you love Bass its goes soooooooo deep also Kode 9 and Spaceape for a dubbyspacedoutdeepbassslowtoasting Vibe and Burial by Burial for some slow creepy beats.

Acid House Lovers try Ceephax's new Album Part2 excellent stuff and of course anything by Luke Vibert, Squarepusher, Two Lone Swordsmen, Plastikman.

Anex if you like the track with Spaceape on Burial try the Kode 9 & Spaceape Album fantastic beats and sloooow toasting by Spaceape. Though Skream for me is the best of the bunch, also been meaning to buy the new Soul Jazz Dubstep comp on Vinyl, should get some serious bass out of that.

Thanks, now on order. With the new Burial 12. Shame Hyperdub don't do proper LP releases of the albums, I know there is a Burial one now but it's been fiddled with and it didn't need fiddling with.

23-08-07, 04:09 PM
I know Anex its the same with Soma, Planet Mu and a few other dance labels they only really release the left over tracks after they've released 12" of the more dancey tracks. Unlike Ninja, Warp, Rephlex and Studio !K7.

I know it's stating the bleeding obvious but... Aphex?

His most recent projects Analord and The Tuss are just great. There's a wonderful looseness to the recordings that belies the technology - a sign of true dark arts mastery :)

Got this today, about 3/4 of the way through now. It's good, not really what I was expecting to be honest, not quite dance but you can still dance to it:confused: .

I see you're selling something called :
Spacetime Continuum - Fluresence EP

That is a ONE SERIOUS record. I remember when it first came out, my friend Robin bought it and we played it before "going out" ;-). Something extra special even then we felt: (a collective out of 'Frisco I seem to remember???) Sadly he was burgled some years later and the bastards took it, along with much else...

I had a great little dance record store near me when I lived in Belfast. Hairy Bear it was called. Every Friday they just used to hand me a pile of stuff they knew I'd like and charge me a fortune for it lol.

I've seen that Space Time Continuum fetch well over 100 in the past.
