the Can thing from recently is cool, and I like Falling Up when it finally gets going. I even like the Congos thing, pointless though it may be. It just makes the original longer, which is a good thing
I have a bit of trouble with threads like this, I think because I don't really understand early-mid 90s techno. Especially the more abrasive stuff (I love basic channel). Aesthetically, sonically I find newer stuff so much more appealing. Couldn't put my finger on why though; I love rough, raw sounding music.. maybe I lack the necessary context. But I never needed the context to fall in love with jungle, or two step. The ..revolutionary arts LP is basically where I start to really like his stuff, rather than the other way round which seems to be more common.
Anyone got any ideas? Not sure where I'm going with this really. I've been trying for a long time with it, and potentially wasted lots of money buying records I don't really like much..
I know exactly what you mean Ben. I love a load of 90s techno and can quite happily listen to jeff mill's sets etc, but only for a while. There's something about the quest for roughness, for hardness that seems so utterly alien to me. Maybe its because i'm white, middle class and boring, but I much prefer recent techno , with its more considered approach to absolutely tearing the floor apart.
