Sometimes things just come together nicely, one thing from over there and another from over here. On Friday the Pulp Librarian posted this Polish promo poster for Bladerunner on Twitter. On Saturday while watching something completely unrelated on Youtube this long trancey remix of Vangelis’ Bladerunner soundtrack turned up on the right hand side. A rather good expansive, trippy re-working of the film’s soundtrack by Tranonica.

Orion

Sons And Daughters were a two boy/two girl band from Glasgow, dressed like Johnny Cash and sounding like a roots group gone punk. Taut guitars, crisp drums, Scottish swagger, growls and shrieks in the vocals. I liked their first two albums a lot. They split up a few years ago.

The Emperor Machine is Andrew Meecham, synth enthusiast and producer and formerly a member of Bizarre Inc. In 2012 he remixed Sons And Daughters’ Orion and turned it into a long, funky, expansive, in your face, cosmic trip. Eleven minutes and thirty seven seconds of trip.

Orion (Emperor Machine Remix)

Orion is one of the most prominent constellations in the sky, visible across the world, named after Orion the Hunter from Greek mythology. It makes me think of Rutger Hauer as Roy Batty in Bladerunner…

‘I’ve seen things you people wouldn’t believe. Attack ships on fire off the Shoulder of Orion. I’ve watched C-Beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time like tears in the rain. Time to die’

Playground Mix

Back to the playground (and the classroom) for me today. Let’s start the week with a smashing mix from The Orb, featuring mainly The Orb but also Lee Perry, Madlib, Cypress Hill and Vangelis (from the Bladerunner soundtrack …’I’ve seen things you people wouldn’t imagine…attack ships on fire off the Shoulder of Orion, C-Beams at the Tannhauser gate…’). A pretty relaxed mix all round.
