Down Slow

My usual MO for tunes has gone out the window recently, since I bought more trip hop stuff for my collection and now I find myself walking the rain station with much more laidback stuff going on, here's a cross section of some I think you'll dig.

Atelier Olschinsky - Structures III (08)

Kicking off with an unreleased number from anti-artists The KLF. This was meant to be included on an EP in 1994 but they intentionally ended their music career, literally burned a million quid in cash and then deleted all the original masters of all their releases which is a bold move. Anyway, as the name suggests, this is a slightly more upbeat version of Madrugada Eterna from the Chill Out LP.

Another solid piece of history from AFX's debut on R&S Records, the timeless Selected Ambient Works 85-92. I always take the album out of my playlists just so I get nicely surpised when it comes back in again, take it in with a track so nice that it has an entire forum named after it.

A strange addition from Miss Kittin here, what starts as a experimental spoken word type piece completely changes around 2:40 where the track really comes into its own and shows off what Kittin can do with just her own voice, I love that aspect of the production on this one.
