Introducing The 100th Mega Post

Whooo hoo!

It's another celebration here at ill-ec-tro-nic as we have reached our one hundredth post. There are no brand new exclusives to give you at the moment so I shall be sharing some current tracks that are currently rocking my world.

Beck - Cell Phone's Dead (Villalobos Entlebuch Remix) // The Information Deluxe, Remixes

One by one he'll knock you out. I said a few months back that I thought that Ricardo Villalobos was overrated. I still stand by that remark but he is slowly winning me over with his superb remixes. Depeche Mode's Sinner In Me, Shackleton's Blood On My Hands and this bomb from Beck have all been huge. Villalobos' sound is to use repetition to such an extent that you get totally tranced out and lost in the mix. And how it works. This beck remix with it's eery moans certainly does that to me.

Thom Yorke - Harrowdown Hill (Ripperton Dub) // Unreleased

Thom Yorke's The Eraser was one of my favourite albums of last year. There have been some great remixes floating about of which this is one of the best. Ripperton turns Harrowdown Hill into a Minimal Techno stormer. If anyone has a copy I'd love to hear the the vocal version.

Round Four - Find A Way (Vocal and Version) // Main Street 1998

Round Three - Acting Crazy // Main Street 1995

Some classic deep dubby House music from Basic Channel. I've been totally getting into this sound at the moment and the sweet Reggae vocals of Paul St Hilaire make these two tracks really shine. You can still get them as part of the Round One to Round Five 1993 - 1999 CD compilation available at Juno and Beatport

Sebo K & Metro - Transit (Original Mix) // Get Physical Buy

Here is a nice slice of Electro House with soaring synth lines and uplifting strings which should do some damage if slipped into a set at the right time. Sebo K hails from Berlin and is part of the Mobilee crew with Anja Schneider

And finally here is a classic from Two Lone Swordsmen aka Keith Tenniswood and Andrew Weatherall (He attended the PYMCA 20 years of rave exhibition don't you know). Rico's Helly is from their second album The Fifth Mission (Return To The Flightpath Estate) from 1996 on their Emissions Audio Output Label and is my favourite TLS track. It's scattershot beats and live double bass bassline are to die for and create a moody masterpiece. You can finally get hold of this on a new compilation of their pre Warp material entitled Emissions From The Archive on the Rotters Golf Club label. Enjoy.
