Now classic is a very subjective term. what I call a classic fourbearsjr may call awful, and may make you go "meh!". BUT, I'm pretty confident that todays selection is genuinely a classic piece of music and that that most people who know it view it as such.
It is; Pépé Bradock & The Grand Brûlé's Choir – Deep Burnt
As you may have noticed i love tracks that build, and Deep Burnt is one of those tracks, starting out with a hit hat shuffle and a snare on the 2 & 4, it introduces big atmospheric pads, that drift and roll until a hit on the actual bar comes in and suddenly you realise the timing you've been locked into is out by a 1/4 bar from there it continues it's hypnotic build to a truly stunningly simple pay off. sublime stuff, and reminds that Trance doesn't always ahve to mean big room power chord saw waves and day glow sticks. This is the kind of music that you sit on close your eyes and let wash over you when at home yet in the club works the dancefloor into a tribal crescendo that will pulse and ebb and flow with the building of the track
For those that don't know Bradock is producer Julien Auger a French, Paris based, artist who cut his teeth playing Jazz and producing Hip Hop before finding his true calling in deep techno and house.
Deep Burnt is probably his most known track as Pépé Bradock, and dropped on the 1999 Burning EP released on Kif Recordings, it’s a must have.
I'll leave it there, enjoy,
Playlist Monday 05th November 2012
It's been a while since i had a genuine walk to work, and a while since i posted a commute powered playlist so i genuinely wanted to get back to how the blog originally started with the main track and the play list to accompany. So there i was all set, over the weekend i'd transferred some vinyl to digital, and had actually taken the time to load my MP3 player up with music both old and newly purchased.
Each morning my wife and son drop me to the train station, it's a 4 minute drive but unwalkable, and as they drove off and i turned to enter the station i put my earphones in and pressed play on the new music playlist to be confronted with the sound only working in one ear. GAAAAAAHHHH!
So why am i telling you this, well one because the chosen track is pretty much the only track i managed to get through in mono and also to let you know that the playlists are returning…. just not today.
