This is the seventh track on Polygon Window’s 1992 album Surfing on Sine Waves. Quality stuff. Very slow and dark as midnight on a moonless night. It’s a pretty good example of the link between what Richard James created together with Mike Dred, the grimy hard acid techno of Universal Indicator – and the crispy weirdness of his most recognised alter ego – The Aphex Twin.
While these massive horn sounds make me shiver with fear and awe, somehow they also make me think of the Ghost Valley courses in Mario Kart. What a great game. Wow.
A true classic oldie for all the
girls boys girls out there.
Speed garage will never die.
Huh, what’s going on here, some cheesy piano intro?
Hold on kiddo. Keep on listening. You see, this is from 1993, back when piano intros were excused because the tunes were badass.
It has patois samples. Kids samples. Scratching. Robot samples. A lady speaking rather convincingly about filling voids with ecstasy. Perhaps the massivest bassline ever created. Constant tempo changes making it a bitch to mix. Yeah, you hear? It’s Hyper On Experience.
This release was big for Moving Shadow, although 2 Bad Mice, Blame and some others had a few great releases before this. Moving Shadow quickly became THE hardcore/jungle/drum and bass label to be on the lookout for, with producers such as Omni Trio, Goldie, Dead Dred, Flytronix, Aquasky, Technical Itch, Dom & Roland, Calyx and Teebee.
One of my favorite tracks ever! Thanks Michaela for the (weekly) reminder.
Nasenbluten from Newcastle, Australia – THE act in amigacore, hardcore techno/gabber created on Amiga and its sweet four 8-bit sound channels and classic old tracker software such as Protracker. Pretty lo-fi and just right for its purpose. All their initial releases came out on cassette on their own label, Bloody Fist Records. Nasenbluten also released some stuff on Lenny Dee’s Industrial Strength Records, such as this particular hit tune on the 1995 double vinyl 100% No Soul Guaranteed. Get it now.
Nasenbluten were Mark Newlands (Mark N, Overcast), Aaron Lubinski (Xylocaine) and David Melo (Disassembler).
By the way, who is in that sample? Kim Wilde? Kylie Minogue?
Nice acid – dirty 808 and a hard bassline!
This was released on the Machines EP in 1993, on one of the most influential hardcore labels of all time, Industrial Strength Records.
Disintegrator is New York based John Selway and Oliver Chesler (which was also in HC-oriented DJ Skinhead and Temper Tantrum among others).
Well, this version is actually the Justice remix.
Chicago’s own DJ Funk is one of the pioneers in ghetto house but he also made some important contributions to (acid) techno in the early nineties. Check out – for instance – Street Traxx II or The Original Video Clash. Some HARD shit! I often use his material in my mixes, can’t go wrong with a little Funk.

…the mix brings me to a sloppy lo-fi video i recorded and put together some time ago:
I chopped up some footage from Look Around You and made this video a while back.
