Techno Animal – Resuscitator

Doom drone from Techno Animal’s 1995 album ‘Re-Entry’.


Techno Animal – Red Sea

Glittering sound piece from Techno Animal’s 1995 album Re-Entry’; this is from the second disc, aptly titled ‘Heavy Lids’. Disc one was titled ‘Dream Machinery’ and was all zombified, apocalyptic Trip-Hop, whilst the second disc was spaced out doom drones.

Mark Broom – Gira

Is it named after the Swans frontman? We don’t know, but we do know that this slice of spectral, stalking UK Techno from 1995 is off of Broom’s ‘Time’ EP.


Repeat – Hurricane Felix

Primo UK Techno from the “supergroup” Repeat; made up of the two guys from Plaid, Dave Hill, and Mark Broom. All of these guys collaborated to varying degree’s with other monikers for Baby Ford’s ifach label, and the lo-fi, minimal sound that dominated that label is present on this track from the band’s 1995 album ‘Repeats’.


Ectogram – Excerpt From The Faust Tapes

Welsh Post-Rock act giving us some Faust from their 1995 EP ‘Spoonicon’. This was back before we knew this ‘excerpt’ was called ‘J’ai Mal Aux Dents’.

Great cover.


Repeat – Tomorrows People

Another slice of deep, ambient Techno from the quartet of Ed Handley, Andy Turner, Dave Hill, and Mark Broom. A slice of electronic beauty.


Repeat – Lilt-A

Mark Broom, Dave Hill, and the duo of Ed Handley and Andy Turner (Of The Black Dog and Plaid fame) got together and formed a kind of UK Techno supergroup that produced a handful of singles and EP’s, and one album. The album was called ‘Repeats’ (1995), and the act was called Repeat. Their material wasn’t banging Dancefloor fodder, but rather slotted in alongside the discrete, Detroit influenced work of the aforementioned Black Dog. Just no one mention IDM.


Drexciya – Black Sea

Tough Techno from the mysterious Detroit team. Hard, aquatic tune from 1995.


Seed – The Alteration

Seed was a side project from Australian Paul Schütze, that was used for a sole album, 1995’s ‘Vertical Memory’. Much of the Seed album was like the output of his other moniker, Uzect Plausch, where his usual Fourth World Electronica became more streamlined, which put it ever-so-slightly more in sync with the Ambient Techno that surrounded him at the time. This track, however, could have been off of any of the albums under the Paul Schütze title. Lovely stuff that glitters and sparkles in the night. 


Lou Reed – This Magic Moment

Fantastic version of the Doc Pomus track from 1960 (as performed by Ben E King & The Drifters). This featured on the 1995 Pomus tribute album, ‘Till The Night Is Gone’, and was recorded around that time. It was, of course, also used in David Lynch’s 1997 film ‘Lost Highway’, and features on that soundtrack.
