Midweek Shuffler

I swear the days are creeping up on me as of late. Seems like I'm havin' to crank out posts much faster these days, not that I mind too much though because I think I have the formula down pat. With that in mind let's see where the joys of random algorithms take us today!

Jim Rosenquist - Time Door Time D'or (1989)

As much as I like to sell Everything But The Girl's later output on the Drum & Bass angle, there's other nice electronic bits to be had too. Hot off the heels of the D&B opening track, thesecond dives right in a tthe opposite end of things and gives us some lovely late 90's house to get stuck into. With the combo of downbeat vocals and house it reminds me a bunch of A:xus' stuff, which I also adore.

Speaking of late 90's, Goldie's follow up to the fittingly named Timeless made an appearance too. Saturnz Return is pretty infamous for it's opening track, a 60 minute orchestral come drum & bass combo, whichis very well made for sure but doesn't lend itself well to conventional album listening. The second disc has a bit more of the Timeless style vibe to get stuck into though.

And rounding out our very nostalgic selection is my all time favourite house jam back in 2003. And to be fair I'd be lying if I didn't still love it, Felix's effortless piano and house combo gets me every time, as does the rest of Kittenz & Thee Glitz actually. The ending is a little abrupt, but that's because it merges into the next track, his equaly housey cover of Space's Magic Fly.
