Automated 2: Under Pressure

To cover more bases, I've lined up multiple scheduled posts, technology's amazing innit? Anyway by the time you read this I'll probably have another load of work to get on with so let's dive right in again once more.

I still contend Moving Shadow to be up there with the other legendary labels, their output was consistently great, even if I didn't dig every single release they did. Take Calyx's Catapult EP, even the B-sides are sick, love the intro on this one to death.

It took me a while to get into Modeselektor's Happy Birthday! but the staring four or so tracks always struck something in me. If anything sums up the Selektor's modus operandi Godspeeed certainly does it. Another gem from the absolutley incredible year of 2007.

I absolutley love when Fly-Lo goes on a quasi-8-bit jaunt. The man's come out and said he wanted to make stuff that sounded like the NES since he had an NES. The couple that were in his Ideas .rar were pretty special indeed, here's a sample of what's been seeing me home lately. That ending section is gorgeous.
