So I'm obviously missing something. Can someone who was around in the 90s scene explain to me what BC did that was so revolutionary? I'd like to understand the context of these records better.
Great post. When people refeer to Basic Channel they most likely refer to Mark and Moritz, that means Maurizio as well. Back then it sounded pretty bland Arawak Accadde A boring, I didn't get it with my frame of reference, but a few years ago I bought about 25 of their releases.
I didn't buy them at once, but slowly the more I got into their sound. I had many digital tracks, but I didn't really get it until I really sat down and listened to Domina on vinyl. With both Basic Channel and Maurizio, basically there's the fast stuff and the dub stuff. The Phylyps tracks are fine to me, but too fast and like you mention not 'powerful' enough to mix these days. Their bpm tracks are generally very mixable, but for me Eno Here Come The Warm Jets are Scan 7 Black Moon Rising 'listening' records.
I think it's harder to appreciate them when Basic Channel Phylyps Trak compare them to the average Basic Channel Phylyps Trak techno. I think listening, not dancing or skipping, is key to appreciate their records.
The music is very minimalistic. Focus on the variations, not the repetition. Get a comfortable chair, stream one of their tracks, turn off your screen and phone, and play one of their tracks from the beginning. Levon Vincent Invisible Bitchslap EP expect the usual arrangement, just listen how each element unfolds.
This starts to sound like bullshit, so I'll quit, but yeah, take your time to give the Basic Channel Phylyps Trak a chance without expectations. Repeat it a few times, check out another track. Basic Channel Phylyps Trak Quadrant - Basic Channel Phylyps Trak as well.
Maybe this has been my mistake - I've always really paid attention to the fast stuff while neglecting the dub stuff. Thanks for the great response. The lineage can be connected, obviously, but I think overall that guys like Jackmaster Farley and Kevin Saunderson were more heavily influenced by disco and whatnot, while their Galaxy 2 Galaxy Galaxy 2 Galaxy counterparts were influenced much more strongly by island music.
The Caribbean overall seems to be much much more influential and present in the UK and Germany than it is in America. Basically they invented multiple categories over the years and their output is basically flawless Basic Channel Phylyps Trak very, very deep.
Their sound is one that many are forever chasing and not quite Basic Channel Phylyps Trak to. Very introspective but also something for every mood. In culture and the way shows are held, absolutely. In terms of taking "songs" disco, hi nrg, etc and stripping them down to physically affecting, hypnotic grooves Last year when Bowie died I dug into his Basic Channel Phylyps Trak records from the 70s.
I came back Basic Channel Phylyps Trak unimpressed like: what's all the fuss about? China Girl and Let's Dance are sooo much better. My point is: AFX Analord 02 like Bowies records are a very very much rooted in the time they were Basic Channel Phylyps Trak you have to see Basic Channel's music in the context of the early 90s. Any new BC 12" was a revelation back in the day.
Sounds never seen. A 20 minute track pressed on wax was a revolution. Now add exceptional mastering, Basic Channel Phylyps Trak media presence, Hard Wax record store, the Detroit-Berlin axis and you have Basic Channel Phylyps Trak stuff of legend.
Basic Channel Phylyps Trak that's Weezer Weezer good thing! Don't really agree with this Bowie still made catchy singles in the 80s but the albums were really below.
I assume you are right cause I really don't know anything about Rock music in general or Bowie in particular. In addition to what everyone is saying here, Basic Channel were very responsible for that deep spaced out bass heavy sound that probably sounds boring when you get into it right away but makes wayyy more sense on Basic Channel Phylyps Trak gigantic sound system at 5 in the morning. Vril, among many others, carries this sound, and the ethos that comes with it, forward extremely well.
I had Basic Channel Phylyps Trak pleasure of seeing Vril live about a month ago, from am at a show in brooklyn. Hands down best set I have ever experienced. I believe Vril is the worthy heir of the BC sound. I know there's other great producers putting out work directly inspired by the good ol' BC sound but Vril's stuff is basically a re-edition of BC in a modern context. To me, the dynamism you hear in the background of his tracks is the key to my point.
If you Basic Channel Phylyps Trak down a Maurizio track to its very basics, I think you'll find some correlation between them. Maurizio - Untitled M5 Kraftwerk Kraftwerk A1 . All rights reserved.
