Holger Czukay – All Night Long

Fantastic piece of subtle musicality from the one and only Can man, Holger Czukay. Sheldon Ancel and Romie Singh supply the wonderful vocals. This is Czukay’s 1993 album ‘Moving Pictures’.

The Martian – Search Your Feelings

True Detroit flavours from Mike Banks as the Martian. From his 1993 EP ‘Journey To The Martian Polar Cap’.

Seefeel – Charlotte’s Mouth

Delicious blend of Shoegaze, Ambient Electronica, and Dub; from the bands 1993 album ‘Quique’.

Dreamfish – Hymn

Blissful, expansive Ambient from the 1993, also called ‘Dreamfish’. Dreamfish was Pete Namlook and Mixmaster Morris; here helped along with some recorded snippets of Terrence McKenna.

Seefeel – Plainsong

1993, when the Ambient umbrella was wide, large, and had many musical permutations sheltered beneath. Seefeel melded indie, shoegaze, and Electronica, and were one of the UK acts that were classed as “Post Rock”; along with the likes of Bark Psychosis, Stereolab, Moonshake, and Laika. This is from the bands 1993 album ‘Quique’.

Bandulu – Day Four

Muswell Hill’s UK Techno trio with a track from their 1993 EP ‘Phaze In Version’. The piece starts in spacey mode, with the Ambient Techno sound that was prevalent at the time, smeared with more than a touch of the Motor City, before skanking its way out with some reggae stylings. The whole EP is class, and this was a great tune to finish it off.

Ultramarine – Kingdom

Pastoral English Folk meets Electronica with UK act Ultramarine joining forces with national treasure Robert Wyatt; whose lyrics were adapted from “The Song of the Lower Classes” by Ernest Jones (c. 1848). From 1993.

Aphex twin – D-Scape

Slightly ominous Ambient Techno effort from Richard D James’ 1993 EP ‘On’. This spacious number was where the listener could breath after the onslaught of ’73 Yips’, and gather their strength before the Horror-Core gloom-Techno of ‘Xepha’. Funny as the whole EP starts in an optimistic, upbeat fashion 9with added fart bass).

Einstürzende Neubauten – Ubique Media Daemon

A titan of a track! If only everything tagged ‘Industrial’ was up to the standards of this monumental juggernaut. Metallic marching drums underpin chanting and Blixa’s diseased vocals. This is from the bands 1993 EP ‘Malediction’, the accompanying piece to the album ‘Tabula Rasa’.

Reload – Ehn

The duo of Mark Prichard and Tom Middleton are maybe better known for their work under the Global Communication moniker; as well as Jedi Knights. However, before they made waves under those identities, they released an album as Reload in 1993 titled ‘A Collection Of Short Stories’, which was a continuous stream of various Techno and Electro shapes which tapped right into the established ‘Ambient Techno’ scene, as well as the burgeoning ‘Intelligent/Home Listening Techno’ music that eventually got tagged as ‘IDM’. ‘Ehn’ is an upbeat Ambient Techno tune with a chugging funk bassline and sparkly synths.
