V.A. HD-DH-1000 Computer Dance Music (2010)

ARTIST`````VARIOUS
ALBUM`````HD-DH-1000 COMPUTEr DANCE MUSIC
GENRE`````
ELECTROFUNK, OLD SCHOOL, BREAKBEAT, EARLY ELECTRO, CLASSICS
YEAR````````2010
BLEEDING PANDA COMPILATION

WHAT?
Huh! I finally finished. I took me a really long time because I am really not even a 10% of an expert on the subject of early electro and electro-funk. At first I wanted to avoid the classics as much as possible but after spending hours listening to 1980's electro/first techno vinyls I noticed that all the classics are really the strongest points and most of the rarities and experimentations are crappy. I didn't include Afrika Bambaataa, Grandmaster Flash or Shannon but I really couldn't avoid Juan Atkins because he is just perfectly detached. In fact almost all songs here were big underground hits at some point. + I noticed that many young "clubbers" today don't really know when techno started or which track is considered to be the first so I posted both of them. Of course - I am talking about 1981 Cybotron's glorious Alleys of Your Mind and A Number of Names Sharevari.
Also, two tracks from Boys Noize and Tobias Von Hofsten are examples of the continuing influence of the Roland TR-808 machine. One of the best less known tracks here is definitely Electric Boogie Boots Cheeky - a fantastic German electro-funk and the childish nerdy Jonzun Crew's classic Space Is The Place - one of the finest electro jams of it's generation.

I hope you enjoy this comp as much as I do.

Art Bears - 3 albums (1978 - 1981)

WHO?
A warm and wonderful avant-garde band - Art Bears were an Englishavant-rock group formed during the disassembly of Henry Cow in 1978 by three of its members, Chris Cutler(percussion, texts),Fred Frith (guitar, bass guitar, violin, keyboards) andDagmar Krause (vocals). The group released three studio albums between 1978 and 1981, and toured Europe in 1979.
Well, whatever you think after hearing this, you won't be able to say it ain't interesting.


Links:


Hopes & Fears (1978)

The first album from Dagmar Krause, Chris Cutler, and Fred Frith's post-Henry Cow project is one of the art rock masterpieces of the 1970s. It's as politically potent as Henry Cow's more strident work, but couched in more poetic and provocative terms. Opening with Bertolt Brecht's "On Suicide," with Krause declaiming the playwright's bitter lyrics in her semi-operatic style to the wheezing accompaniment of Frith's harmonium, the album continues in that uncompromising vein.

DOWNLOAD


Winter Songs (1978)

Finding distribution on the Residents' Ralph Records label, the Art Bears' second album consists of 12 songs of various tensions: rest vs. speed, improv vs. pulse, space vs. density, Dagmar Kraus's vocals vs. everyone else. As usual, Chris Cutler's lyrics tell political allegories through medieval-tinged stories: slaves, castles, and wheels of fortune (and industry) dominate. A guaranteed lease breaker if played often enough.

DOWNLOAD


The World As It Is Today (1981)


On The World As It Is Today and its predecessor, Winter Songs, the Art Bears move away from the long-form art rock of Henry Cow and get much, much more politically explicit: song titles like "The Song of the Dignity of Labour Under Capital" and "The Song of Investment Capital Overseas" almost sound like Monty Python gags today, but if any humor was intended it was clearly meant to be mordant. Frankly, the lyrics are so overwrought and portentous that it's hard to take them seriously. But the music is something else again.

V.A. BLEEDING TECHNO SERIES VOL.02: GLIDE (2010)

ARTIST`````VARIOUS
ALBUM`````BLEEDING TECHNO SERIES VOL.02: GLIDE
GENRE`````
BALEARIC, HOUSE, PROGRESSIVE, DETROIT
YEAR````````2010


WHAT?
For some time now I wanted to share some great techno/house/electro tracks I enjoyed but they were either to "4x4 clubby" for my compilations or simply long beatport frenzy club mixes and did not fit at all. So I decided to start regularly releasing compilations of just kool danceable club sounds overlooking their genres or bpm's.

Since there was a really warm reaction to my Bleeding Techno Series Vol.01 I decided to pack another bunch of tracks I enjoyed these last months.
Here we have a selection of several excellent Balearic house-chill tracks for a cool and long warm-up. Naturally, I had to complicate it and enforce some more minimal (Tristesse), electro (Juno Ride) and even a pure commercial clubby progressive-tech-house (Step Out) to diversify the mix a bit. I hope you enjoy this selection and that DJ's find some romantic, moody tracks to spin.

As for some comments posted here about my chaotic combination of songs from different years (not being 100% trendy or something) I can only say - a good track is even better when you hear or discover it 5, 10, or 20 years after and it still sounds great. Also, there are thousands of "Best 2010 Summer House Hits Vol.458" on the web to feed a trendy mind with short-lived music. Accidentally, most of the songs on this comp are from 2009 so I guess I'm late for 6 months hehe.

Leave some feedback folks and enjoy the glide.

TRACKLIST:
01 Lullabies In The Dark - Code 7429b
02 Jacob Korn - Grosskariert (2009)
03 The Field - Leave It (2009)
04 Woolfy VS Projections - Return Of Starlight (Invisible Conga People Rmx 2009)
05 Fontän - Nightrider (2009)
06 Kollektiv Turmstrasse - Tristesse (2007)
07 Makossa And Megablast - Juno Ride (2009)
08 Joris Voorn - Decay (2007)
09 D-Nox and Beckers - Step Out (2007)
10 Damian Schwartz - In The Mood (2008)
11 Kenny Larkin - Cirque De Soul (2008)
