It’s all what it says on the cover. Light hearted disco house for home dancing pleasures. Or when my soul needs some easy to digest pop fun but I still want quality music.
When I first listened to this I couldn’t believe how absolutely great this album was. An Offspring record in 2021, which sounds like such a good evolution of them. It’s part serious but part fun, it has drag and beat, it’s all around good punk rock, I just cannot help stamping my feet when listening to it. Although I’m still wrapping up my year-end conclusions but this one is pretty close to being my favorite rock album this year.
In 2005 when Dead Can Dance reunited they recorded and released a series of shows as limited edition records. Now these got published on Spotify. Naturally it is beautiful material. But also, listening to live concert recordings in the times of lockdowns and cancelled events is a life saver. Part pain of absence but part breath of life.
On a completely side note, thinking about the ethics of republishing of previously limited material. I imagine you can say that the limited experience at his point is the physical copy anyone purchased in 2005. But that sounds kinda like an excuse. I’ve recently seen a sale where previously Kickstarted board games found in the publisher’s storage were being sold, with Kickstarter exclusives included. Makes me go hm.
Amazing tripping techno with dancefloor tempo. This makes me miss a good techno party bad.
Intimate electronic music (think Moderat) with down to mid tempo and glitchy broken beats. Not the kind of intimate that makes you turn inside and feel blue, but the one that gives a push and inspires.
I spent the Saturday packing up my apartment and organizing things. Perfect soundtrack for that.
I’m not as amazed by this as I was with Post-Truth and Black Daisy Wheel but it’s still a good listen and worth noting. Genrewise this is a bit all over the place from IDM to techno and electro. That said, I’m not fan of the more experimental tracks on this one and like the more laid back, easy-going tunes.
Nu skool breaks and progressive house Sasha style. Go for the continuous mixed version.
I’ve been listening to this back and forth for a whole day and this is so beautiful. Peaceful ambient to calm and comfort. I love how Floex can transform his wonderful clarinet-based tunes to any instrumentation but still you find his soul in everything he creates.
It’s a straight-up electronic dub record. Perfect soundtrack for work.
