Being included in a volume is not the highest honour.
Venice Beach (Original Mix)
Semicentennials are often smaller spectacles than centennials, but they are invariably theriomorphs anyway. Venice has beaches, & so do we: Kandi's antepenultimate constitutive shows most of his stylistic ken, & all of his substance.
First & last, the prog trash is lautitious enough to be its own song, always a luculent sign. Making me sorry to see this Dane leave, Venice Beach is more like Milan beach. Ultimately it's Switzerland beach, with its macroseismic foudroyance; refined entheogens of Acheron pouring in, & again, the outro is behemothic. 150 deserved this.
Venice Beach (Lifted Mix)
This is the most unwarranted EM ever: one more minute. Truly, lifted.
Venice Beach (Estiva Remix)
Practising for 2016, Steve gave an atypically chilled rendition of the OM. Slower, percussive, relaxed... it has it all, except a reason to listen to it.
Venice Beach (Yuan Remix)
Our only Chinese artist ever is also our smooth-funkiest. This mix couldn't be more hydrophobic. The first half is dark deep trance, which leads into the OM's hype melody being MacGyvered into a tenebrose tarab, like a coffin into a speedboat. Mister Franc Peso Kronerrand mastered dolour for this epic epopee. Zloty, won, ruble, yen, rupee, lira, cordoba.
- though his label, always alive recordings, justifies it
- another example: Gai Barone
- Arabic for musical thrill
- Yes, this happened.
