The Perfect Dance Track

You're on fire. Not heard that before. Only listened once. And it's one of those that I hear for the first time and think "That could be one of the best dance tracks I've ever heard".

I've just tried "Papua New Guinea" again. Still hate it.

I tried a friend with that one. "Do you get anything from this?"

"No. It sounds like the music from a 1980s B-movie by John Carpenter".

And I know exactly what he meant.

What I do hear is a mixing of a number of styles in a way that is unusual, in its day, perhaps ground-breaking. It's alright for about the first 60 seconds until the drum kicks in but what I hear sounds like three or four different tracks that don't mix, cut together.

I'm tempted to think that you're right - it's not one to dance to. Maybe it works after some ketamine. Though I can do the "journey" ones. This one's more hard-edged and metallic.

From the superb album - had that on recently, still great. To me, it's experimental (progressive techno?) that really works creatively.

 

 Perhaps after all the dance music  I needed something more intellectual / progressive . I stopped clubbing regularly around 1991/2, I hated most of the speeded up " Happy hardcore" rave stuff. The Rave scene was getting controlled by gangsters, too drug influenced , non original & commercialised .

Ironically, I was living & working in Caledonian rd round the corner from your bagleys from 91-95 & never went to Bagleys, . I got back into Ambient dub stuff in 93, again a lot it was a more mellow muso groove, not hard core dance, perhaps I needed a break from it. I loved my techno though, which stemmed from some of its its Belgium New Beat roots.

 

Funny you should mention Living for the City, One of all time fave covers is Tina Turners one (I have 12" , not found on Yt) 

 

 

Lovely sound on this brutal Hip house type looper

I really shouldn't like this as I'm not a fan of Garage music....

I think the original was better, made a big impression back in the day

Maybe a mash-up too far, but still, lots of fun:

 

I love mash ups. I got really into them a few yrs back, like a new form of music if done well.

 

I posted original club mix before, but this mix is wonderful imo, taking it much further, with some "journey " original work , mixing in piano from another house classic FPI Project - Everybody (All Over The World).

That's a decent tune. I think the second link might be wrong ;)

OK not dance, but it's the ultimate mash-up.

 

Cheers , link corrected.

 

Mashups are best with a bit of retro / kitsch

Recently rediscovered X-103 "Eruption" too. This is the full version rather than the album version.

 

Thats original, though I imagine a bit too "new beaty / gothic" for many  taste

Interesting comment, X-103 was Jeff Mills and Robert Hood of Detroit techno fame. It was Jeff Mills' "The Bells" (below) that first got me into techno when I heard it on John Peel's show as a 16 year old, which serendipitously enough was the first track playing as I entered the Main Hall at my first Atomic Jam at The Q Club. I think that was where my love of jump-up d&b started too...

If anyone not into dance music has stumbled across this thread this is not one to click on.
