Your top 5 picks & why:
Matthew Herbert – The Audience
One of my favorite tracks & top music to end the night in a delicious dancing way , possible that I jump off stage to dance with my fellow music brothers & sisters.
Link – Amenity
Ah , The nineties in full effect ! Evolution records was the mighty label of Tom Middleton & Mark Pritchard , this was released in 1996 & a milestone for electronic music . At 1st you think this is ambient but it’s not !
Jon Hopkins – Light Through The Veins
I saw Hopkins for the 1st Time as support act for Herbert & I instantly heard a genius of this era & by now he has all the credits he deserves , splendid club tune & probably one of the best tunes to end a set .
Dave Valentin – Cinnamon & Gloves
This is music by humans for humans . discovered on the dingwalls compilation.
Funkadelic – I Bet You
The world would be a duller place without them , 100 % top funk from their 1st record (1970 ) buy this if you can.
Boards Of Canada – Aquarius
It ’s normal for me to play all night & in the morning people & music can turn loose. From Music Has The right To Children & that’s a fact , on WARP records .
Matthew Halsall & The Gondwana Orchestra
Wisdom of life & woman power in the morning is always a good idea , timeless smart jazz .
Singers & Players Feat Prince Far I – Bedward
From the mighty On-U Sound & this list would not be complete without them , this is the story of a priest who taught he could fly.
Jah Wobble & Bill Laswell – Alsema Dub
From Axiom label , a sub division of island Records & they released some of the best records ever , This is Dub in all his glory , from Radio Axiom
Kraftwerk – Computer Love
No list is complete without the fathers of electronic music .
