There's Still Sickness In This House . . .

But I'll be back at the day job tomorrow. Just about recovered from an awful bout of gastroenteritis. I couldn't forget the blog though. Four more of the best. I'm trying my hardest to track down DBX's remix of "Vampirella." It's out there, somewhere . . .

Stardancer - The Martian (Red Planet)

This should please someone north of the border even though he's got it. The only thing I don't like about this track is that it's much too short. It's one big, huge incandescent rush of energy. Fifteen years old and counting. Will it ever be bettered? Did Detroit peak here? Not exactly but another would be nice.

Losing Control (Carl Craig remix) - DBX (Peacefrog)

The pick of the bunch for me. Remixes also come courtesy of Robert Hood and Plastikman. Carl Craig turns in a proto-minimal stormer of Dan Bell's classic.

Art and Soul - Octave One (430 West)

Picked this one at random and it's not a bad choice being a little bit left-field of the Burden Brothers normal sound. Not as groovesome as we're used to from them but groovy nonetheless. More to be posted from the cosmic siblings soonio.

Gamma Player - Millsart (Axis)

From the "Humana" EP and one of my favourite Jeff Mills tracks. Enigmatic and beguiling. It's deeper than the Mariana trench and seems to belong to the past just as much as the future. The woman on the label is a resident of the twilight zone and the whole concept reeks of paranoia.
