The Fairy Tale...

I love older releases from Biosphere but haven't really kept up with his more recent music, doesn't help that you never see his music in Dublin stores!

This is an excellent track from the album Microgravity

Ursa Major 7...

This track is taken from the excellent X-Mix 3 which I originally bought the CD mix version back around its release in '94. This is one of my all time favourite mixes and I had to get my hands on the individual tracks as per the vinyl release. I eventually got a copy about 3 years ago and I have posted below one track for now...enjoy!

I don't know how I missed these CD's back then but I am very happy to have discovered them now, if only on MP3 till I buy them second hand...seeing as none are available anymore which is a serious shame because it is some of the best electronic music I have ever heard, and I really mean than! The only track I had heard before from these guys was Utuba which was featured on the excellent Artificial Intelligence II on Warp Records - it is beyond me why I didn't track down more from them when I bought this compilation back then. Anyways, such is life.

The song posted below is featured on the excellent Texturology

I will post more tracks another day but this is nice taster of the excellent music of Beaumont Hannant.

Been a while...

I haven't posted for the last while as I have been a tad busy with work and life in general. Posting an entry in a blog can be time consuming and down the list of lifes priorities! I have however been getting my hands on a lot of good music and will pop some up soon.

Along with most dance fans I have always loved Positive Education...its a natural floor filler and has been played by all sorts of DJ's over the years, regardless of genre preference or the type of crowd they are appealling to. The other mixes that were on the double 12" remix ep were also excellent but that bit darker than the original. As a bonus on the CD Maxi release, the amazing "Intensities (In-Ten-Cities)" was included and this had originally been the flip side to the first Soma release of Positive Education in 1993. I suppose Positive Education had more of a mass appeal feeling to it and for that reason is always considered a dance classic but Intensities is the real gem for me...

Download below the various mixes of Positive Education and the absolutely amazing Intensities.
