Here goes. Gilles Peterson on Pacific State.mp3 - 2.71MB Hearing it again, I'm not really sure if he referes to a particular track og d'n'b as a whole. But listening to an early and influential cut as Parallel Universe by 4hero, which he playes earlier in the show, clearly has chord played out and s...

More honour for Pacific State

In his broadcast last week Radio One DJ Gilles Peterson did a retrospective show on drum'n'bass playing a series of epical releases, as he saw them. At one point he credits Pacific State for being a major influence on the dreamy chords business in the drum'n'bass genre. Hearing this came as a surpri...

It's the legendary Mark Farrow. Responsible of nearly all Pet Shop Boys as well as the DeConstruction label (M People) for many years, amongst a lot of other things.

He also did 10x10, Plan 9 and 808:88:98, if my memory serves me right.

Dear me, am I asking for too much? At least then could someone in the UK let me know if they can play the 'listen again' shows? I cheated around it putting in a "random" UK zip code. The only one I remembered was the MTV one stamped in my memory from the Partyzone haydays: NW1 8UH. It worked. I was...

A well known Danish artist had his studio broken into and they ran way with the computers including a lot of finished songs, that did not have an outside backup.

That's where you almost hope for a bootleg release of your songs.

Spooky - Gargantuan has a website adress on the CD backside. And that is released in 1992. Although the one I've seen can be a re-release.

Powerful stuff. Wonderful stories. True love.

I just appears to me, how Olympic (a true masterpiece) is perhaps recorded using 5-8 difference synths. Warm sounding paying brilliant contrast to the sharp and steady drum machine beat.

Loooots of fine stuff, but I'll go for the second mix of Voiceprint. So strange, groovy and tech-y.
