Electrelane – Blue Straggler

Brighton 4 piece Electrelane conjure up the spirits of fallen mods on this typically moody piece from their 2001 debut ‘Rock It To The Moon’.

Biota – Birthday

Woozy Americana from Biota’s 2001 album ‘Invisible Map’.

 

Soul Capsule – Law Of Grace

Soul Capsule are Thomas Melchior and Peter Frank Adshead a.k.a Baby Ford, and they are in the habit of delivering sublime cuts of Deep House. This tune from 2001 is no exception, and the bass entrance at 4:18 is really, really nice.

Terry Riley – In C (Bang On A Can Allstars)

The Bang On A Can crew take on Terry Riley’s ‘In C’. 2001; Dig.

Aranos – Octopus Field

Some drone work from Petr Vastl a.k.a Aranos; Avant=Folk artist from Bohemia and neighbour to Steven Stapleton. This is from hi 2001 album ‘Whilst Your Gaiety Melts’.

The Other People Place – Let Me Be Me

Detroit Techno-Electro from James Marcel Stinson’s 2001 album ‘Lifestyles Of The Laptop Cafe’. Great stuff!

The Other People Place – Eye Contact

Sublime Electro as imagined by Detroit Techno; from the prolific, mercurial, and sadly missed James Stinson of Drexciya fame. This is from the 2001 album ‘Lifestyles Of The Laptop Café’, which is as magnificent throughout as this track would suggest. Go seek.

Jan Jelinik – Tendency

This track is Microhouse from the original wave of said sub-genre; off of Jelinik’s sublime 2001 album ‘Loop-Finding-Jazz-Records’, where the title speaks for itself and Jelinik constructed the entire thing from samples off of Jazz records. The album has a lot of tracks that are the kind of clean, minimal Electronica that was au fait at the time (think Kreidler, To Rococo Rot, et al). However, this tune, as previously stated, is super minimal microhouse. The devil is really in the details in this incredible piece of music.

 

Dump – Dirty Mind

Dump was Yo La Tengo bassist James McNew, and in 2001 he did an album of Prince covers called ‘That Skinny Motherfucker With the High Voice?’. This, the best track on the album, is a fantastic rendition of a great Prince song.

Animal Collective – Another White Singer

Sometimes it’s hard to remember when Animal Collective were experimental, and this Residents=like track from their second album, 2001’s ‘Danse Manatee’ is a strong reminder. It’s recommended that one checks out the rest of the album if this tickles your fancy, as the band throw up shapes resembling everything from primitive Techno, through This Heat, to their friends and fellow travellers Black Dice. This was back when they felt as vital as the rest of the Brooklyn noughties scene.
