Too 'dancey' for my taste but something for everyone
on 5 April 2010
On one hand, maybe it's a more accessible intro if you like Radio 1 dance music - I wouldn't want too be precious about 'my' music.
I appreciate analogue synths and vinyl crackle, but also clean cut all-digital recordings. This is the later, but for me, where this falls down is that most tracks try too hard to play a (weak) homage back to dance music.
The exceptions that are defiantly good for all are Autobahn (not the original 22 mins but still a respectable 9+) and Trans Europe Express/Abzug/Metal On Metal (essentially one long 'journey' or 'concept' track that takes twists and turns). In these cases it's been worth slight re-arrangements (rather than full re-mix) and clean cut all digital recording.
