Technovisions
(not even listed as a cassette release on Discogs!)

This is a perfect example of the kind of thing you can find at the Dalston Oxfam Shop, 1993 goth/industrial/techno/trance on cassette that no one will likely have (or maybe want ?) in digital form. Listen up . . . some of these songs are actually almost exactly like The Knife and other rave revival stuff coming back. In particular, I recommend Kinetic (Orbital Mix) by The Golden Girls and Mihon 3 by Ongaku, who for some reason only released songs called Mihon. Apparently, Mihon 3 was party written by Uwe Schmidt (aka Atom Heart) who has now morphed into the lovely german latino Senor Coconut, one of my favorite very smart and ironic artists, who did the concept album interpreting Kraftwerk latin music style. Goes to show that you can't keep a good mind down, even if they start in minimal trance lande. Ongaku also released some tracks on a compilation called The Secret Life of Trance. uuuuh, does Trance really have a secret life?

Dalston Oxfam Shop April 18



So here launches my little idea. Fun to find old Cassettes in the Oxfam shop in Dalston, east London, that probably no one will ever put onto mp3/digital form. I put them into mp3/digital form. You download. One a week. Leave me comments or suggestions. Read the song listing by clicking on the picture above.
