Where Are We?

As I'm talking on this in Glasgow in a couple of weeks I'm thinking about it. This is about right as one of many soundtracks for hyperobjects. I remember being up in the VIP lounge at Land of Oz when Alex Patterson and Jimmy Cauty were looping “Sueno Latino” underneath these ambient environmental sounds. 1989. Then it turned into these guys.

“Sueno Latino” being the bestest piece of house music, maybe ever. Very very melty. Like you want to melt into the carpet. Hyperbliss.

One of the best bits of this tune is that they have used Grace Jones's “Slave to the Rhythm.” Really really well. Madly I have the EP still. Hopefully my mum sends it in a nice package this very week! So much vinyl in London...still...

The title is from an episode of Blake's 7 which has the eponymous brain ruling Ultraworld in a pulsating sort of a way.

Meditation, punk, house. For me they are all virtually the same thing. Obviously one isn't talking simply about calming the mind, but about the mad performance art punk thing called awareness.
