I’ve been into DJ Shadow since the release of Endtroducing in 1996, but it’s never felt as though it would fit anywhere in a previous podcast; however, I’ve attempted it here – rather than take something from that hugely successful album, I’ve taken a trio of tracks from a single released two years prior to Endtroducing, the Preemptive Strike compilation, which was initially only available as an import in the UK, and lastly Meiso, (A DJ Krush album for which he appeared as a guest)…..
After that we go straight into brand new music from Sufjan Stevens, who has returned this year with a real left-turn from his previous album – Die Happy is a full on electro track with a pretty emotional vocal hook…
Fugue, by Contrapoint, is one of those mid-nineties detroit techno records which now changes hands for a serious sum of cash. There are rumours that it’ll be repressed but that hasn’t materialised yet…Good luck finding a copy!
After that we hit a trio of classic drum & bass vinyls, two from the Good Looking camp, and then a curious anomaly from Dillinja’s back catalogue – I always thought the drum programming here was pretty unusual compared to everything he’d done before and since. Discogs lists it as a Lemon D single but there’s no such marking on the vinyl, and Juno listed it as Dillinja so that’s the artist I’m going with!
We then move into material more common with the podcast, a nice array of ambient music and film scores.
Last month I stumbled across a Photek record I didn’t already own! It seems ridiculous, but this one, a collaboration with the wonderful Robert Owens, was released somewhere after Solaris and before his Photek Productions label kicked in – and completely passed me by. It’s a cool slice of house music which sits nicely alongside the owens-collaborations from Solaris. Photek later re-worked the vocals on the Form & Function volume II track Things, which is, without doubt my favourite track from that album.
We conclude this month’s podcast with a pair of heart-breaking Brazilian bossa-nova songs, from Hareton Salvanini and then Astrud Gilberto – both hugely moving and epic pieces of music from the late 60s / early 70s – a magical era for Bossa Nova music, which is fast becoming my genre of choice.
