A gorgeous experiment in revisiting the music of the past with the knowledge and bias of the present.

This blisteringly optimistic record pings between seemingly disparate moods with a deeply manic energy–jumping from sweet melodies about love and flowers to acid, breakbeat or gabber samples effortlessly.

“Neo Ouija” – Metamatics

Quiet and slightly melancholy late-nineties IDM, with a bit of a wonky leftfield attitude.

“Neptunes Lair” – Drexciya

From the moment you are dropped into the intro’s chanting drone and bubbly speech samples, the deep dark ocean imagery comes to mind easily. Acid-y breakbeat with submarine pings really set this record firmly in a 90s tradition of dance music.

This is a record that’s perfect for driving around on a sunny day with big puffy clouds above you and somebody nice in the passenger seat.
