One of Europe's leading dance music record shops, Phonica Records, presents the dance and rave classic "Exit Planet Dust" by The Chemical Brothers at our Wednesday curated after work session.
Portishead's first album, "Dummy", did not sound like much else out there when it was released in 1994. Although it did draw upon the trip hop Bristol sound popularised by The Wild Bunch and Massive Attack, it pushed the sound further afield.
CAS is starting midweek, mid-month sessions curated by some of our favourite mags, writers, record shops and DJs. Grab a beer and pizza afterwork and listen to a great album. Our first session is co-hosted by DJ Magazine who will present a seminal trip hop classic.
Here is the low-down on the records Jason Kincade played in the musical lead-up to our Massive Attack "Blue Lines" New York session.
Wendy Melvoin (of The Revolution and later Wendy & Lisa) refers to the album as "a new beginning. Purple, the sky at dawn; rain, the cleansing factor."
"Chill Out" is the seminal ambient house album that was the brainchild of former Timelords and Justified Ancients of Mu Mu, Bill Drummond and Jimmy Cauty. It is a concept album that sounds like the soundtrack of a road trip along the US Gulf Coast from Texas to Louisiana with a few pit stops along the way.
