Ok, so have been listening to this on repeat all day, so it must be worth a mention. ‘We Want Your Soul’ by Adam Freeland (2003). He’s actually from the UK, but you’d never know it from this. Heard it recently, and trying to convince myself whether or not I heard it first time around. I should have, since it made the charts and is distinctive enough, but it’s been long enough and I’ve certainly not heard it much in the past decade or do.
A great video. Awesome message on consumerism (note 2003), but also reckon it fits with the current political mood in the UK 12 years later.
Resistance is futile.
So… Orbital have called it a day (again).
A couple of weeks late catching up with this news, but there you go. Although, as Paul Hartnoll puts it, “Orbital had stopped working properly. We had a great four years since getting back together in 2008, but it was time to move on.”
So it’s not the first they’ve put the brakes on, but sounds like Paul and Phil with be in different orbits for the time being. Will keep an ear out for the solo stuff (Paul’s album, ‘8.58’ is forthcoming, apparently).
In the meantime, here’s one of my old favourites: ‘I Don’t Know You People’ from their 1999 Album, ‘The Middle Of Nowhere’ (which is brilliant start to finish).
Some 70s throwback…
‘Ergocentric’ by François Rolland on Harlem Pop Trotters.
Jazz/funk/groove at its best!
Awesome Prodigy mix I just stumbled across. Worth sharing, if you like that sort of thing.
Just under 2 hours of Prodigy, mixed live using Traktor Pro. Tracks from all albums and the early EPs on XL Recordings. Prodigy lovers the world over, enjoy. And the good news? I still have another 47 tracks that I didn’t fit into here, so there may be a part two!
[UPDATE] – I have done a shorter Prodigy mix consisting of the hits only, not so many album tracks. The reason for doing that can be found on the description over at this mix: http://www.mixcloud.com/lloydi/prodigy-megamix-just-the-well-know-ones/
