The Digital Space Between - EBM/Industrial

An old friend living in Florida has just gifted me with an all of his dance compilations from the last 15 years. Some great stuff and I will post more soon in between tapes from the Dalston bin.

Not much to say here except that I chose a cd that looked like it had more stuff less likely to be found/available. This compilation is from Hard Records in Denmark. I also don't think that Industrial is very heavily covered in the blogs.

1 Front 242 Modern Angel (KMFDM Remix)
2 THD (2) Hypo (Bitcomm Mix)
3 Contagion Turn Of The Screw
4 Dive In The Glasshouse
5 Skinny Puppy Scrapyard
6 Leæther Strip Adrenalin Rush (Vegger Version)
7 Numb Ratblast
8 Vomito Negro L.A.T. (Living Apart Together)
9 Cubanate Body Burn (Julian Beeston 7" Mix)
10 Clock DVA Hacked (Reprogrammed III)
11 Swamp Terrorists Pale Torment (Convert Single Remix)
12 Die Krupps Paradise Of Sin
13 Insekt Digging In Your Soul (Insekt Remix)
14 Bigod 20 The Bog (Shot Mix)
15 Naked Apes Leave Me Alone / SMF
16 Templebeat Interzone (M. Lega Mix)

In addition, I recommend the new mix set by Jeremy Campbell from the Sonic Sunset show. He's a new discovery for me from NY - excellent leftfield disco guy. He also re-edits a lot of great tunes on his blog.

Just Seventeen - Get Kickin'

OK, so the Dalston Oxfam bins sometime yield slightly more cheesy things than other times. But I still love the megamix of Bobbie Brown on here as it takes me well back to some good times sitting in my car.

The good stuff here is Lamborghini by Shut Up and Dance who also did Raving, I'm Raving. Got a great Sweet Dreams sample in it. Also pretty good is the Tricky Disco track, which is actually the same guys as the following track, GTO, which is off Warp and some really good Belgian techno labels.

I will post cassette 1 next week which includes KLF, Technotronic and Tribe Called Quest.

Cassette 2 - Side 1

1 - Paula Abdul - Opposites Attract (Street Mix) (Duet With The Wild Pair)

Am I the only one who finds this song Chotto DongDong on this blog strangly hypnotic (great art too)?

Here are some good myspace pages:
"I Hate My Period"
"wölfgang the homo and cockface"
"Baron Von Lichtenstein and the Soggy Shorts"

And this is fun to watch in some strange way.

How come I've never found a club where people dance like this in London?
