ERM, SOME DEEP THOUGHTS
"Dance was always about human interaction and that feeling of being united on a dancefloor, and it's important it stays that way." ...Ben Turner, 'And Another Thing' column, Muzik mag., November 97

Turner's insights, looking back from 10 years down the road, struck me. 10 years ago I was making the transition from nightclub to underground, thanks in part to my increased interest in the growing diversity of excellent 12" dance mix/remixes... some even available at my nearby Mall record store! Way back when, I used to record aerobic mix-tapes, and I also began to sense a need for an antidote to the pick-up scene of clubland. Plus, I was dating a 'pool shark' who wanted to play pool and I wanted to dance and feel comfortable just enjoying the music, cuz the darned music was gettin' so good, no subtext was required! We found a place in Philly called, "The Strand." The Dj was Robbie Tronco, the music was strictly Underground...Acid House, goth-beat (i.e. Sisters of Mercy) & New-tronic Music (i.e. New Order). There were 3 levels and many rooms, an outdoor chillout terrace, pool tables, and a varigated crowd of fascinating folks and crazy characters! It was a very cool place at a very interesting time. In America, things were getting weird on Wall Street, and the glam of excess was peaking. Today, 'they' say that happiness is in the air....well, it's about time we all stopped mourning the excesses of the 80's and the subsequent grunginess that followed as a pennance...or maybe it's just the St. John's Wort talking!

The music is expanding...and its meaning and definition broadening out. It's more than about dancing. Of course, much of it is dance music, but ALL of it is motion music...body motion, spiritual motion, intellectual motion... And we here at Technotica, reaffirm our commitment to continue to do what it takes to bring the tone of These Technotic Times to you, because, this is who we are and this is what we do!

'STATE OF THE SCENE'
The 'Electronic music scene' is home to all those who delight in the infinite number of possibilities...it's like a Napolean cake, with many intriging layers of yummy things to sample...from beatless ambient experimentalism to insane industrial-techno-gabber-core, there are places to go, people to meet, and music to share in, dance to, and sometimes lose it to bigtime!!!

From tiny coffeshops in Canada (check out the live cyber broadcast every Monday night, 'Neroli' at www.plus8.com), to sleazy lounges in NYC, to abandoned underground train stations in Moscow, to beaches under the full Moon in San Fran, to progressive dance clubs everywhere, and at all those after hours places, there is a mind-boggling proliferation of music, talent & energy. Seems that a growing number of people are just captivated by the power of musical expression!

Classifying the styles of electronic music has become quite a challenge....f'rinstance, there are probably a dozen types of Jungle alone! But, some sub-genres are certainly becoming established, makin' our job a teeny bit easier!

DEFINING COMMERCIAL TECHNOTICA
Why not call it what it is? Techno Rock! You know, the Chem Bros type stuff, Digital Hardcore, Death in Vegas does it, the Prodigy do it.....it's crossing over to the frats and they're raising a cup of brew to it! There is a big difference in the vibe with this more aggressive Rock & Roll stylee techno. It's more accessible to a crossover audience with it's energy and attitude, and hopefully will make lots of people want to discover the incredible wealth of wonderful Electronic Music out there. That's why I never get rid of a rekkid! You never know when it's gonna be the right time for it!

LOUNGE-A-RIFFIC
It started innocently enough with those Cigar bars, then the Martinis started to flow...and, whenever there's gin, brass, and smoke involved, some weird situations are sure to follow ;-> The world has been moving so fast, living has become accelerated to the point where real leisure time is very precious, so we want to use the time we devote to going out, socializing and partying wisely. It's good to sit with a lovely beverage, smile and chat, and listen to chiller music. In fact, while you're reading this, check out my Lounge-Like mix at http://www.technotica.com/music/tttunes.html

DISCO REDUX
Disco...better find a new name, cause the sound is being assimilated...Techno, Disco, Electro...Oh no!

Disco's influence is being felt everywhere, and I've been hearing the fashion industry calling for a return of 70's style, again.

MATURE HARDCORE
Hardcore..when I say hardcore, I maen hardcore techno, the hard 909 driven bangers from labels like Industrial Strength, Pcp/Pcd Germany, Dark Destination, Dead End, Hool...we ain't talking no happy hardcore here either baby! This stuff, in one form or another, will always be around, cause there will always be energetic, angry people...bless their dark little hearts!

TURN ON THE TRANCE
Trance is on an upswing of popularity, although the 303 has been put on the back-burner for the latest batch of psychedelic trance choons...there's a whole range of trancing elements available to the ingenious musician to add to their bag of trix.

ON THE BROKEN BEAT
Lots of cool breakbeat, taking the form to new levels, going deeper into D&B and trip-hop, fusing jazz and cocktail soundage (like Oxygen, Ill) and then swinging toward the wilder, psychedelic side with manic beats, loops and samples (like Pharma, Excession). Isn't it nice when you can spot a new one out by a fave producer, sure in the knowlege that it won't dissapoint, and sure nuff, it's wonderful?! Yeah, it's real sweet, and so is William Orbit. He teams up with Mat Ducasse as 'Invisible' doing "Scream," a wild breakbeat amusement ride that delivers crazy, crazy fun!

JUNGLY
Jungle and Drum & Bass continues to maintain a loyal following in the underground. No forseeable club breakthrough as of now, tho Speed Garage may prove to be the Trojan Horse D&B is lookin' for...

I HEARD IT ON THE RADIO...
I was listenin to Q102 in Philly on a recent Friday night, and was surprised and pleased to hear the Dj takin it pretty deep with remixes of tunes that mushroomed from the underground. It was broadcast live from a club, so it was a doubly cool thing to feel that vibe! It wasn't too long ago that these sames club jocks were bemaoning the crowds just wanting the same old stuff, same old beats. But there are lot's of wonderful, music loving DJ's out there and they have fearlessly kept pushing new sounds, new feelings, and are learning new ways to get the crowd to respond to the music. Bravo!

And on a note of interest, I asked quite a few people out on the town recently at several 'top spots' if they had seen David Bowie on MTVs 'Ten Spot.' About 40% knew about it, and about half of those knew he was there in place of the Stones, the other 60% didn't know anything about it, and really didn't care.

STYLE REPORT
Clothing, there's no real style, everybody looks like skaters & ravers. For a few months now, while out and about, I've overheard conversations of peeps commenting on others, and those phat pants are on top of the dis-list. Ha! That's pretty funny, especially considering that a second specialty store just opened in the local mall featuring totally raver/skater flavored duds, and this past Sunday's New York Times special section on youth subcultures featured several photos of ravers in their phatties, accompanied by a sort of 'Ode 2 Phat Pants.' It seems certain that the masses will soon be swathed in flapping fabric. Ok, so now, if'n yer one of the bunch of 'original phatsters,' you're prob'ly not a happy camper right now. Not only has your style been 'absorbed' by the mainstream, but many of your own peeps are dissin it?! Well, I guess if yer true to the concept, then you won't care, those pants sure feel and look cool with dancing and you know it!!!

TOP TECHNO TUNES 10/97

1. CONEMELT - ROCKERS RUIN EP - ILL...
Oh Yeah! If it all was like this, it just might be a rocker's ruin!!!! Ha Ha ;-D I almost don't know what to 'classify' this as...so many influences are apparent, and it's all blended with that special 'Conemelt' touch! There's electro, weird spacey stuff, funky keyboards, jungly underbass, D&B, and a huge hard 4x4 banger with deep intense vibrating bass and a cool disco break!

2. ALLERGY - INTUITION - SOMA...
Wanna head-trip? I'm absolutely melting into the most delicious groove after hearing 'Intuition.' Then, 'Contagious' gave me some big ass bass beats with weird sticky wet electronic pulses and got me trippin wildly funky! The flip-side sends a 'nightstalker' in hard, raw n ruff, gettin all primal n sticky on ya, then it's 'Earth Day' stompin, deep, talkin n twirlin.

3. VORTEX - TIME WARP - SUBSOUNDS... (2x12)
Yeaowza! I nearly had a seizure hearing this baby the first time! The A/B disc has a Silver Shower remix that rrrocks. This sounds great with that UMEK stuff! Every track on this and the companion C/D disc is an amazing, hard, ruff, banging, insane mover...and, they're very well recorded and produced so the sound Really gets around! Check out 'Time Bomb' for a Halloween like scarey howler!

4. SURGEON - LEARNING - DYNAMIC TENSION...
Taking you a bit further into the realm of beats and patterns, 'surgically' probing the boundaries of mental stimulation and evaluating the effectiveness of the flippity stick.

5. CFC 12 - RUFF&COLD EP - NU FUTURA...
Wow! I'm wiggin out Man! Huge n hard stuff that bangs away with lots of great efx, spacey sounds and... talking harmonicas!!!

6. DEA - SILVER EP - PLASTIC FANTASTIC...
Oh My! Weird & trippy stuff...breakbeats, pumpin 4x4 beats, funky winding acid, Far-Eastern vox, tribal touches, even a bit of deep & mysterious dreamy trance! A good package!

7. VAN BAUCKS - THE BELLVUE - DELERIUM...
Come fly with me amist rows of banging beats and up n down ladders of clicky filters, whilst a spacey synth guides us. Then, we'll become mezmerized with beats that slide in and out and a deep bassline that winds and attacks with measured insanity...nice.

8. TRI PAX VOL 2 - RAW - TRI PAX...
It's been a long time since the first TriPax (and I still keep it in my hardcore box!), so I bought this without listening, Knowing it'd be good, and, it is! With only 1 out of 4 tracks that I can't play on the air, this hardcore stormah' has got it all, from the lovely deep breaks with female ahhh's and long synths of 'Swarm', to the rappin 'Raw', to 'Devil,' with it's sinister sirens feeding the darkness with raw big hardcore beats and rolling breakbeats.

9. ORDINARY FOLK - BRAIN EP - FRAGMENTED...
3 top tunes to wake and bake yer brain. It starts by shattering your psyche with some hypnotic tones and helicopterish clattering and chattering bloopyness, then ya gots some deep, dark poppity whooshing mind matter, flavored with electro, and it ends up with a bright sounding military style marcher that'll re-connect those frayed neurons.

10. DJ TUTTLE - OPTOSWITCHES EP - FUTURE FRONTIER...
Minimal monsters hidden in these grooves of inky darkness that go screaming out into the night when cut with the stylus...PsychoTrancematic!

Bangin deep and trippy beaty beats with weird effects and electro influences.

12. PAUL DAMAGE - TINY NEVER HAD A TEDDY BEAR - HOUSE OF GOD...
Wild, bangin fun here, taking it a bit deeper to a primal ooze-poppity thing with an odd vox :)

13. JOHANNES HEIL - AMEN - FIEBER ...
Intense long trippy trancers with stompy beats and flippy metallics.

14. LUKE SLATER - FREEK FUNK - NOVAMUTE...
The original is keen, with building percussion, spacious 'ahhh's' and electro vocoder stuff...the remixes stregthen the beats and move it forward (Steve Bicknell's Lost Mix II even talks to you within the running beats!). 'Stomp' is a fun, jazzy disco funk peice that throws a bit of that Samba in!

15. PACIFIC STATE SMAPLER - VOL 1 - DEVIANT...
If these 3 cuts are representative of the entire compilation, then go for it! I chose to go with #1, and it delivers varied slices of Japanese techno ranging from the driving funky trance of Boom Boom Satellite's 'Soul Screamer', to Tatsuya Oe's tuff electro in 'Warning,' to the Masterful Ken Ishii delivery of a fun conga fest with 'Dinosaur.'

16. CHAMP-E-ON - THE PARTY EP - INFERNO...
He returns to kick some tail and rock it out once again on the Hardcore party tip.

17. DARK SALVATION - MY STYLE - DARK DESTINATION...
The title track is fun, but it's 'Anger' that I'm into...Funny dark hardcore with Japanese vox samples!

18. THE RED TEAM - EP - RED HEAD...
Thick n grinding deep Hardcore with interesting vox samples.

"Noise" is my fave cut here, this is what I like about hardcore!

'Moonshine' does it here, very trippy, with breathy female vox.
 

HEAVENLY HEADY STUFF 10/97

1. PLAID - UNDONESON - WARP...
Yes! I want more of this 'complex layers of wonder' stuff :) 'Undoneson' is quirky n cool, with bell-like sounds and beaty electronics. 'Spudink' is lovely smooth, deep n spacey trippy stuff. 'Headspin' is sorta silly n sweet, long n deep. Some vox 'kept on going,' and at the end 'something was spinning.' Very interesting.

2. YUNX - BILL ODYSSEY EP - YUNX...
Bit of a strange bird here, and I like it! It's light hearted, a bit whimsical, yet deep and smooth. Styles combine, meld and transform sounds to feelings.

3. FRANKIE VALENTINE - THE CRIMINAL KISS - AUTO EXTENSION...
Ah yeah, smooth n deep groovy bongos, violins, samba, jazz, pianos, n flutes...very cool!

4. DRUM ISLAND - FIZZ - APOLLO/R&S...
Yes, we are chillin in the heavenly lounge now! 2 long dreams of deeply layered and multi-influenced head music. The beats are there, the attitude is there..it's snazzy!

5. FRIDGE - ANGELPOISED - OUTPUT...
Ah! A mini-vacation here on the title cut, with shakey shakins, far off voices, and a slow bass strum that combine to breeze in a kinda tropical feeling. The flip takes 3 different turns with some Rock & Roll flava, a loungy organ thing, and a chill space jazzer witha weird horn...Very Nice!

6. EXOPLANET.VOICE.TRANSISTORS - ELECTRO.MUSIC.SPECIALISTS - SATAMILE...
4 very interesting, intelligent and well made cuts that'll take you back, make you feel at home, and give you a glimpse into the far future.

7. MONEY PENNY PROJECT - CLARISSE-C - NUPHONIC...
The main cut is supa-nice n lovely, a breakbeat chiller with harp and violins (I'm hearing a Lot of harps lately!)...then, '2 Lone Swordsmen' space it out with a cadre of angels shakey steppin to a gurbly deep poppity musicesque-lounge-thingy.

Here's another one! Heady stuff to chew on. Some breakbeats, seagulls, wah wah, exoticness makes it chill n purty.

11. TOM CHURCHILL - AT YOUR FINGER TIPS - HEADSPACE...
Not just for the head! "Hot Air' offers a loungey ambience with big clear beats, brushy, sliding and popping percussion, a house organ, and a jazzy bass guitar, it's funky! The flip is 2 cuts of moody funkiness that percolates and pulses, the funk comes in, and, whoa, yer dancin!

12. PRIMAL SCREAM - STUKA - CREATION...
Industrial flavored treats with that '2 Lone Swordsmen' touch makes it mentally disturbing yet oddly attractive in that 'Primal' sort of way.

13. JASP182 - RICOCHET - INSOMNIAC...
Ambient mental acid. The beautiful journey of 'If The Sun Never Rises Again' fuses mellow beats, lovely winding sounds, a touch of acid and a piano for a very pleasant effect. On the flip, the 'Ricochet' mixes take the acid to a very deep and funky place to trance you out and bring you up.

14. CORAL - VIRUS - LAVA...
These get more out there with every release, you never know what to expect! This one reveals some deep weird atmospheric D&B and a clappy n snappy tribally bongoed buzzer.

15. JOURNEY INTO AMBIENT GROOVE 4 - V/A - QUANGO...
A 3 track taster from the CD series that's getting some good reactions. This one's on the trip-hop tip. 'Sofa Rockers' (Richard Dorfmeister Mix) is outstanding, radiating downbeat chill n sexy vibes.

16. E DANCER - HEAVENLY - KMS...
'The Human Bond'! There's that Jungly under-bass again, and it sounds really good! Dance n wipe to the Latin like beaty beats. The flip, 'Heavenly,' is beautiful music that sooths with deep harmonics and far off sounds.
