Hectic City 8e – Burned In A Feathering Pyre

The final part of HC8, and the final word from me on 2008 (maybe ;). Looking back on this there’s some things that really should have gone in (Squarepusher, Byrne & Eno, “Shackler’s Revenge”, Busta’s “Don’t Touch Me”, Wiley etc…) but they didn’t quite seem to fit anywhere while I was mixing, so it goes… Hope you’ve enjoyed the selection anyways, and a very Happy New Year to you all.

Only thing that remains is to ask if you think there’s anything obvious I’ve missed out on? – let me know if so – I’m all ears as usual :)

Professor Pork says : “It’s a fine line, I know. Oink. But as house music continues it’s return journey from innovation back into pure functionality (discuss somewhere else, pls), it’s been left to the online production world to come up with the goods – Unfortunately their tendancy to promote and duplicate musical memes as quickly as possible for fear of seeming out of touch has left them with five hundred remakes of every half-realised idea, and no one that has the time nor the inclination to sift and sort through. Snort. You could make your own variation in the time it takes to listen to everyone else’s. See what you’ve done, Kleptone? Underground, overground, now everyone’s wombling free, you dig?”

Eric says: “Good for them, I say. Kudos to Fake Blood though, for having the decency to avoid repeating the same sounds across every tune he makes, and to Duke Dumont and Funkanomics for their persistance of vision in the face of fashion.”
