dance music?

The Necks' Hanging Gardens (one of the few of theirs I hadn't heard until today), why did no one tell me this sounds like the breakdown on a '97 Metalheadz record stretched out for an hour? Deep bass and scrunched up hi-hats circling like spider's legs...a certain type of person (namely me) keeps wating for that BOOM-CLACK two-step to drop. Some of those watery moog chords and pensive Rhodes notes could be easily ripped off a 2004 Paradox record if they hadn't been layed down by three people in a room in Australia in 1999. An enterprising drumfunk DJ needs to get on this now and thank me later.

um, why did no one tell me this sounds like the breakdown on a '97 Metalheadz record stretched out for an hour?

haha, so OTM. this is my favourite thing of theirs by far and the only one i've listened to more than, maybe, 5 or 6 times. i take it the skittering drum is a sample (of their own drummer) which is layered with live drumming? amazing how it holds the attention for 60 minutes.

i honestly can't tell whether or not it's sampled or live or some combination! so kudos mr. buck, i guess.

(though the credits list "sampler" but who knows what was sampled.)

funny how something we totally think of as part of a "dance" record of a certain kind sounds nothing like "dance music" in this context.

weird, i was listening to some track with that metalheadz sound and had an idea of trying to beat mix all the breakdowns and intros from those records into a 30 minute mix, to create this noir-y drone-y thing, and now it seems it's been done.

will def. check this out tho.
