Ilictronix Podcast: The Intros Round

"Claude shares tracks that lack a long intro and get right to the "good stuff." Adam shares some recent breakcore, rave and hardcore tracks."

We are back once again for this week! I indulge my instant gratification side with a heap of songs that have killer intros and just keep on giving, kicking off with an absolute smasher from the granddad of disco himself Giorgio Moroder. We then navigate the avenues of my music collection by way of more stuff from OCRemix, old school Clark, one of my first electronic loves in Felix Da Housecat and more. I really liked this format and like I said in the show itself the is SO MUCH ammo to be had when talking intros, I didn't touch on it in the episode but I have some examples where I don't much care about the main body of the song but I could live in the intro forever. Adam's choices are surprisingly unsurprising this week, but again as I say in the show I genuinely look forward to my weekly injection of piano stabs and general hardcore come old school rave, it's definitely a shake up of my usual listening rotation and gives me further things to add to my (admittedly very small) collection of rave. Tracklist and show notes below.

Intro: Girogio Moroder - Giorgio's Theme

Claude’s picks:
Mattias Häggström Gerdt - Morning, Thinker
Chris Clark - Lord Of The Dance
Felix Da Housecat - Madame Hollywood
Cornelius - Heart Grenade
DMX Krew - Place Called Love

Adam’s Picks
Maruwa - 31 Seconds
Ilana Bryne - Dub Box Medicine
PCK - Amen Garage
West Norwood Cassette Library- feeling too big to dance
Concept e25 - What Did You Say

Siasia - Asirium (Kuba Sojka Detroit House Remix)

The album I talk about from Mattias Häggström Gerdt is simply called "The Answer" and like most if not all OCRemix projects has it's own promotional mini-site where you can read about the album and also download it for free! If you liked Morning, Thinker as much as I you can get your hands on it there!
