Acidic little clouds

So I thought really hard about this, being that it's the first couple of songs I am going to post they have to be good so here goes:

Manuel Gottsching - E2-E4

An almost 6o minute long masterpiece from 1984. I know, I know some of us can't sit down and listen to the same beat for entire hour, but trust me it's worth it, after listening to it you may hit the repeat button. You can really feel the roots of techno and trance being sew into the fabric of music with this composition. It'll rock a baby to sleep....Or maybe a stoner. But seriously Manuel Göttsching is aBerlinn born avant-garde composer who has recorded with suchluminariess as Klaus Schulze and Tangerine Dream. His career started 1970 and spans 30 years. Manuel eventually let E2-E4 be sourced by Sueno Latino to be turned into the 1989 underground classic of the same name.

Ultramarine - Light in My Brain
guaranteedeed to perk up any crappy morning. Pop this song into the old cassette deck on the drive to work and you'll feel as if you were piloting a fluffy white cloud through traffic on the freeway. There is a definite Orb vibe theirier music. This British Duo recorded five albums of ambient detroitiness during the nineties. This track from 1992 is otheirier second album entitled "Every Man and Woman Is a Star" on Rough Trade UK. It's almost folky, it's early Foltronica. Before FourTet championed the sound, Ultramarine were developing the genre.

Ok that's it for My first posting. As you can see, I'm not going to post tobviousuos stuff you think of when one mentions "Detroit Techno"; Trust me I won't post Strings of Life tomorrow. I will be posting mixes some of my own mixes and larger caches of stuff once I get all the kinks worked out, 'til then Peace.
