Techy Wednesdays

Oops I meant for this to be yet another Techy Tuesday but I done goofed again. Have the belated version of the post anyway featuring a ton of Electroclash because I unironically like the genre. Less getstuck in.

Atelier Olschinsky - Neon Cities (04)

Recently put the creatively titled debut LP #1 back into my rotation. International Deejay Gigolo Records are pretty much a goldmine for the seedy electroclash-y sound, but I always felt like Fischerspooner were the meeting point between the cleaner stuff and the all out lewd, and this track is a solid example of that. There's nothing out n' out filthy about it and I bet it would still be at home on a dancefloor today.

I wish I had come around to Mount Sims sooner. I was aware of the featuring tracks he'd been on but it took me a crazy long time to check out his solo work, and I haven't been able to get my dannies on a physical copy as of yet so this one isn't the best quality. But I'll be damned if it doesn't tickle my electroclash itch like no other, straight from the opening track.

And finally, a half remembered fragment of my youth that I came into again recently. More of the soundtrack from the PS1 Ghost In The Shell game, I remember a demo disk with it on and the intro movie blew my little mind before I knew what Cyberpunk was. Fast forward a decade or so and not only do I have the soundtrack to that video, but the whole game too. And it's chock full of gorgeous mid-90's techno.
