>Exploding Plastic


While we’re playing long dance records here’s David Holmes’ debut single Johnny Favourite from 1994. Recorded with Jagz Kooner and Gary Burns (two thirds of The Sabres Of Paradise) and released on Warp it’s fair to say that this one goes on a bit. Just under sixteen minutes in fact. In that time Holmes manages pounding beats (that do sound very like Sabres), ambient breakdowns and all kinds of progressive house bits and bobs, before building to a pretty explosive ending.

Hex by Gatto Fritto is a wonderful slice of… oh I dunno, psychedelic Italo disco, or motorik house, or analogue electronica, or…. I think I ‘m turning into one of those word generator things. If you like electronic dance music that builds slowly and makes you feel warm and a bit like dancing, click on the link. You won’t regret it.
