House music with such a deep oomph and groove, by the wonderful Mr G. A good 7 years old at the time of writing, but discovering late is fine.
A dirty, kind of roar of a track. I guess you’d call it electro though kind of hard to fit it into a box. Would be immense on a proper sound-system. According to Discogs, it is “characterised raw analogue pure machine funk”. OK. But have a listen.
A minimal, slightly spaced-out groove that I’ve been trying to find for a few years now.
Well, I’ve started going through Paul Johnson’s very extensive discography following his passing, to see what gems I may have missed. This is quite a recent track, I’m enjoying the upbeat triggerish jack to it, and all the computerised vocals. One for a real dancefloor moment.
No vinyl release sadly.
This just has quite an astonishing breakdown and a really good use of the sample. Almost Ricardo-esque padded beats and quite an adventure at 15 minutes long.
One of those feel-good techno tracks that Omar S is soooo good at. Well, I call it techno – it is more at a pace of house music but it has a techno ethos. Enjoy the euphoria.
A rarest of posts – a drum’n’bass track – this is light on the breakbeat, fairly slow-paced but heavy on the darkness.
Available on Bandcamp – no vinyl release at the time of writing.
Another dark and moody breakbeaty techno track, with some synth screeches in the background. But it is all about the breakbeat power.
Quite an in-your-face track, more breakbeats but in a fast electro kind of style, with rave sythn stabs to give it a bit more urgency. Also quite a dark feel to it.
There’s kind of a minimal influence going on here, but more of a magical offbeat breakbeat wobble.
In a year with seemingly much less great music than normal, this stands out as a foreboding warning – musically it feels like a warning of the dreadful future ahead. Powerful yet understated somehow.
Breakbeat basslines that just absolutely stomp. Kind of in between electro and minimal – a slower vibe.
