God – On All Fours

Noice Rock In excelsis here; from Kevin Martin’s bands final album, 1994’s ‘Anatomy of Addiction’.


Stasis – Inspiration

Graceful, Detroit-inspired UK Techno from Steve Pickton here; this is the title track on his 1994 album of the same name.

God – Bloodstream

1994’s ‘Anatomy of Addiction’ was sadly the final release by God, as Kevin Martin wanted to eschew the contraints of a band, and immerse himself in the studio. When one listens to tracks like this, you wish he’d found the time to do both. This mighty piece starts off with echoing horns; moves into grinding doom metal; then becomes a piece of sublime Krautrock influenced music topped of with luscious wah wha guitar and bongo drums.
Then to top it all off some serious dub bass kicks in and the track expands outwards.
it is a winner.

Pete Namlook & Tetsu Inoue – The Invisible Landscape

This is the ‘Invisible Landscape’ part of their 1994 collaboration ‘2350 Broadway 2’; Beautiful, and totally immersive Ambient music. It is so vey sad to think that both of these men are no longer with us, but makes one thankful that their work lives on and can still take us on a journey.

Stasis – Welcome To The New Age Disco

Class Detroit-style Techno from the UK’s Steve Pickton; from his 1994 album ‘Inspiration’.

Orbital – Philosophy By Numbers

Haunted House riffs propulsed by skittery Electro riddims’? Yes, it’s ‘Philosophy By Numbers’ from Orbital’s 1994 album ‘Snivilisation’.

Plastikman – Plastique

Brittle Electro with so much space in the mix; from Hawtin’s 1994 album ‘Musik’.

Global Communication – 14:31

A beautiful track that stretches time; and time is on one’s mind when they listen to this as the whole thing is slowly propelled by the ticking of a clock, while synths swoop and expand, and a simple piano motif pulls at the heart strings. this track is, of course, from the duo’s classic 1994 album ’76:14′. Portions of the album haven’t dated well, but some parts, such as this piece, have retained all of their beauty.

YO3 – Deep Sleep

Crisp, finely-crafted melodic Techno from way back in 1994. YO3 was one of Beaumont Hannant’s monikers, and this was released on (GPR), who also brought us material from the likes of The Black Dog, Nev, and Luke Slater.

Tortoise – Ry Cooder

It’s a warm, summer evening over here in London, and this track from the Chicago Post-Rock outfit’s self titled, debut album from 1994 fits it very nicely. Wonder what Ry Cooder thinks about this one?
