Nice cinematic synthwave album. Some darksynth vibes too.

I can't get over how much I like this.
The Chipmunks version of Refugee, slowed down so the vocals play at something approaching normal speed.
Satisfyingly heavy.

the vocalist doesn't sound terribly great here since being pitched up would mask a lot of issues, but alas :lol:

Glassjaw - Material Control. I'd be a total Glassjaw fanboy if every album didn't tail off into tedium or self-indulgent navel-gazing after a half dozen tracks.

The Judas Factor - Ballads in Blue China. I'd forgotten about this one, cracking Revelation Records release that starts pissed-off hardcore, goes all jangly early 90's emo, and finishes a mix of both. Good stuff.

Prick - s/t. Didn't like this back in the day, but to these older ears it sounds like NIN as sexed up by T-Rex. Fun record. The follow-up 'The Wreckard' is literally all over the place and is very hard to pin down, though it sounds industrial many of the tracks on there are far, far from it. I've got a Lucky Pierre EP on vinyl, with some earlier versions of the tracks that made it onto the self-titled album, while Reznor was still playing with them. I really like those versions as they have a very new-wave 80's sound to them, it's fascinating to hear how they morphed into the industrial=lite of the Prick LP.

Superb synthwave/cyberpunk ambient, reminiscent of Deus Ex, and maybe Blade Runner too.

Please imagine that I am suffering from Detroit Techno amnesia. I quite literally forgot everything I knew about the genre, to the point that my father even retorted "but you have vinyls of that techno stuff!" in one conversation.

Could you suggest favourite works and and essential listening? Reading through encyclopaedias and sites feels too drab. Personal, subjective opinionated opinions are better, for an failing forgetful fool.

That's a good find! Just the right amount of AESTHETIC in my city pop.

I'm into mindless grind these days, these Japanese ladies are pretty good: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tooBve1gRNg

But more importantly, somebody help me, what's this music from? I'm sure it's something I play all the fckng time, but my brain fails me: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z995KPfokSU&t=145

Synthwave goodness by Morgan Willis.

More enjoyable Future Funk with those 80's JPop vocals.

You really cant go wrong with Carl Craig's albums 'The Album Formerly Known as' (2005) and 'More Songs About Food and Revolutionary Art' (1997). The former is a remake of 'Landcruising' (1995). Some like the original better.

This veers more into electro but a lot of material in the Dreciya cannon is being repressed thanks to Clone records in Rotterdam.
Elecktroids 'Electroworld' (1995) is a personal fav. Also, all of the Drexciya 'Journey of the Deep Sea Dweller' collections are worth it.

This one's a little more recent but I highly recommend Convextion '2845' (2016). It's has a bit of dub in there but everything is still firmly rooted in the Detroit sound. Just check the album cover.

Scrilla4rella: thank you, I am going through Carl Craig's opus and I definitely re-discovered an artist I lost almost all memories of (I should have the Landcruising vynil somewhere, back at home).
I have scribbled down some notes on the other albums you cite, so I will chime in as soon as I have time to listen to them (!). The Convextion album's cover is just...brilliant, for a lack of a better term :wink:

Brief tangent: They were and a few other songs from the aforementioned albums have clearly been an inspiration for Battle Garegga. I had the chance and time to listen to Garegga's OST and then Craig
's works in a row, and the connections are amazing.

Always a pleasure Rando :wink:
wish I had a copy of Landcruising on vinyl, it probably goes for bank on discogs and the like.
You also might want to check out Craig's Paperclip People compilation, which is more dance-floor oriented

I need to listen to these two tacks side by side again. with the Garegga OST Namiki really wears his influences on the sleeve. Lifting melodies and elements from hard techno seems so passé in 2019 but this was definitely not the case in 1996.

Scrilla, Drexciya and Convextion are new favourites, too, so thanks a lot!

I couldn't help to think: "Hey, Convextion is a white guy!". I know, it's 2019, but I really strongly identify Detroit Techno with Afro-futurism, -punk genres in SF and graveyard shift listening radios. Game-wise, I believe that Street Fighter III also had DT contaminations (I am thinking of Necro's theme in the second chapter, and listening to Drexciya's Harnessed the Storm, specifically).

On a fairly different tangent: Benny Sings and Mocky, two artists I discovered via Carol & Tuesday, are fairly interesting (Soprano, you've been alerted :wink: ). Benny Sings, in particular, is a Dutch "pop author" that actually spans over decades and styles with nonchalance bordering on the shameless, and has a Moroder-like voice. His work is quintessentially retro (picture a blend of blue-eyed soul, smooth Jazz a la Donald Fagen/Steely Dan, the aforementioned Moroder, etc.), but then again any non-mainstream artist in Europe must be retro, I guess.

EDIT: If I become an old professor with tenure and nothing to do all day, I would like to write a book reconstructing the influences of Detroit Techno, Afro-Futurism and -punk genres in Japanese arcade games (and a genealogy of artists who own some intellectual debt to Michael Moorcock, which could be a multi-volume work, eh!).


If I don't jump out of the window any given day before that or enlist in the foreign legion, of course.

Right on! glad you're digging the aquatic beats. I'm impressed (though not suprissed) that you were able to get into the world of Drexciya so quickly. It took me several years before I could start making sense of it all. Also, I'll need to give Necro's level music a listen.

Yeah, not only is Convextion a white dude but he's from Texas no less! Regardless, his sound is purely in the Motor City tradition, so much so that Juan Atkins tapped him to remix his Starlight track. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ACMqVSmCT9E
