AUDIO IN: MUSIC
- Artificial [Inception Records]
Debut album from the US based duo. Developed beats, well integrated vocals
and insanely catch synth lines mean that this release will have a hard
time leaving your CD player. You've heard most of what they do before,
but you've never heard it done so well. For me, the only down side to
this album is trying to decide which track to play at a club.
The White Room [KLF Communications]
Yes, it's 10 years old. Yes, it's commercial dance music that's showing
its age, and yes it still is one of the most influential electronic albums,
period. Buy the album, buy a copy of "The Manual" and realise that every
song they released as a single was prefectly calculated to go to number
1. Ever had the feeling you've been had?
mensonges - Erroneous Zone [Nonexistent Recordings]
One of those rare CDs where the artists have forgotten - or transcended
- genre and created something genuinely unique. Vocals range between agressive
and ethereal, likewise the beats run from nonexistent through doof into
complicated breakbeats. If you are a fan of electronic music in any way,
you NEED this CD. The only problem with this release is its extremely
small pressing, meaning that you'll find it hard to find a copy, but trust
me, it's well worth the hunt.

Blue Monday: Absolute Beginners [2001 - Oni Press]
Imagine an 80ís teen comedy, only with a punk rock attitude and manga
art. Thatís Blue Monday. And a new miniseries is out. Itís funny. Itís
cool. And itís written and drawn by Chynna Clugston-Major, who is basically
a goddess. Read it, okay? Itís ace.
