Repercussions #22 “In The End”

This week marks the end of the first season of Repercussions, and we return to the theme of the first episode with another selection of touchstone moments in electronic and dance music history. From an opening salvo by New York producer Joey Beltram, through to a closer from Bjork, I select tracks from artists such as The Orb, LFO, Daft Punk, Autechre, Altern-8, Chemical Brothers and Aphex Twin, and revisit an important moment in Australian dance music, from Itch-E & Scratch-E.

Repercussions #21 “Rewind: 1989”

In this episode of Repercussions, we rewind back a quarter of a century to 1989, to a time that is known as ‘the second summer of love’.  The first summer of love was back in 1967, when thousands of people migrated to San Francisco for a wild psychedelic ride fuelled by sex, drugs, politics and rock and roll.  The second summer swapped the rock and roll for rave; and the rise of house and techno reached a tipping point, summoning hedonistic love and public condemnation in equal measures.  Acid House was a key part of the soundtrack, and we kick off with a couple of key acid tracks from Farley Jackmaster Funk and Virgo Four, before moving through the birth of Warp Records with Forgemasters and Nightmares On Wax, picking up artists such as 808 State, The Beloved, New Order, Renegade Soundwave and The KLF, and rounding off with some free-love inspired hip hop from De La Soul and Neneh Cherry.

Repercussions #20 “DJ Shadow – Endtroducing”

In 1996, 24-year old producer Josh Davis delivered an album that would transcend its origins within the hip hop community to become one of the most revered and most referenced records of its era. Endtroducing was the debut full-length release for Davis under the alias DJ Shadow, and it was famed for the fact that not only was it made from almost 100% sampled content, it also hung together beautifully as a cohesive and forward- thinking piece of work. In this episode of Repercussions, I’m joined by creative producer Jain Moralee and writer Kate Hennessy to discuss the impact and legacy of this classic album.

Repercussions #19 “Early Electronics – The 1960s”

If the 1950s was all about teenage rebellion and rock’n’roll, the 1960s took things to the next level – a decade of wild experimentation, free expression and the birth of counter culture as we know it today.  The implications of all these things on music was of course profound – but whilst The Rolling Stones and their ilk were all riffing off old blues records, the 1960s was the decade where electronic music came into its own.

In this episode of Repercussions, Stuart Buchanan revisits some of the important electronic records of the era, tracing the journey from musique concrète and tape loop experiments, to sci-fi classics and psychedelic freak-outs, via artists such as Delia Derbyshire, Morton Subotnick, The Beach Boys, John Cage, Steve Reich and more.

Steven Ellison has been producing music under his Flying Lotus alias since 2006, releasing six critcally acclaimed albums, collaborating with artists such as Kendrick Lamar, Erykah Badu, Thom Yorke, Snoop Dogg and Herbie Hancock, and finding time to set up his own independent label, Brainfeeder.

On this episode of Repercussions, Stuart Buchanan and guest Luke Telford take a 60-minute fly through the Fly-Lo catalogue, from early Dilla-esque beats on his debut 1983 to the hip hop’n’jazz-fusion odyssey of his new release for Warp Records, You’re Dead.

Repercussions #17 “Underworld: Dubnobasswithmyheadman”

Celebrating the 20th anniversary of its release, this episode of Repercussions looks back at the debut album from Underworld Mark 2, Dubnobasswithmyheadman. Often cited as one of the most important dance records of all time, it came after over a decade’s worth of failed attempts by Rick Smith and Karl Hyde to make an impression on the music industry, coupled with mounting debts and doubts about their future. A chance meeting with17-year old DJ Darren Emerson changed all that, pushing the band in a new direction that met with both critical and commercial acclaim worldwide. In this episode, we hear tracks from the freshly minted remaster of the classic album, along with unreleased material from the new deluxe edition box set.

Repercussions #16 “A Salute To Those People Who Say Fuck You (For Mark Bell)”

On October 13th 2014, the electronic music world lost one of its pioneers – at the age of only 43, producer Mark Bell, co-founder of Warp Records’ duo LFO, passed away.  Bell was also a prolific producer and remixer outside of the LFO camp, most notably contributing production for seven Bjork‘s albums over the last fourteen years.  To celebrate Warp Records’ 100th release, the label released the compilation ‘We Are Reasonable People’, featuring a track from Mark Bell titled “A Salute To Those People Who Say Fuck You”.

By way of our own salute to Bell, on this week’s Repercussions we feature a selection of artists that operated within Bell’s orbit and who, most importantly, were people who took great delight in saying ‘Fuck You’.

Repercussions #13 – Aphex Twin “Selected Ambient Works Volume II”

Repercussions Aphex Twin

Released in 1994, and following a slew of disturbingly warped and frenetic experimental techno releases, ‘Selected Ambient Works Volume II‘ was not the record that everyone expected. In this episode of Repercussions, Stuart Buchanan is joined by Peter Hollo from FBi’s Utility Fog to listen back to classic cuts from the record, and to attempt to unravel why the work was loved and loathed in equal measure, and why it remains such a seminal piece of electronic music history.

Repercussions #12 “Instrumental Grime”

Repercussions Instrumental Grime

Falling out of scenes such as UK garage, hip hop and drum and bass, Grime rose to prominence in the early 2000s, headed by a raft of soon-to-be-famous MCs such as Dizzee Rascal, Tinie Tempah and Tinchy Stryder. Although often dubbed “a London thing”, Grime has spread internationally over the last decade, and its sound has also developed well beyond its roots – coming to a head over the last two years with a new wave of producers creating, what has been broadly dubbed as, ‘instrumental grime’.

On this week’s Repercussions, Stuart Buchanan takes a survey of the scene from a number of players including Slackk, Samename, Mssingno, Rabit, Moleskin and Murlo, and investigates Australian connections from producers Strict Face, Arctic and Dellity.

Repercussions #11: “99 Records”

Repercussions 99 Records

99 Records was a label run out of New York’s West Village in the early 1980s which, over its brief and troubled lifetime, blended the aftershock of punk with disco, dub, funk and proto hip-hop in a catalogue that includes some of the most influential records of the era – records that would have a lasting and profound impact on artists such as LCD Soundsystem, Carl Craig and Optimo, and was a critical inspiration for DFA Records. In this episode of Repercussions, Stuart Buchanan rewinds through 99 Records release slate, featuring Liquid Liquid, ESG, Bush Tetras, Maximum Joy, Y Pants and more.

Repercussions #10: “Portishead – Dummy”

Repercussions Portishead

20 years ago this month, Portishead released one of the defining records of the 1990s, their debut album ‘Dummy’. Blending hip hop, turntablism and samplology with downbeat jazz drums, electric guitar, dub bass and the unique vocals of Beth Gibbons, the result is an album that, despite its ‘trip hop’ tag, has stood the test of time with remarkable rigour. In this week’s Repercussions, Stuart Buchanan revisits ‘Dummy’ via a selection of album tracks, b-sides, live versions and original sample sources; and we hear Portishead on remix duties for Massive Attack and UNKLE.

This week’s Repercussions takes former FBi Album Of The Week artist FKA Twigs as a jumping off point to explore the expanding world of experimental R&B – an amalgam of commercial R&B, pop and soul, blended with experimental production and off-kilter sounds. We kick back to 2006 with Cassie, before winding forward to recent productions from artists such as Dean Blunt & Inga Copeland, Kid A, Phlo Finister, Kelis, SZA and Jessy Lanza; and uncover Australian contributions from Fatti Frances, Oscar Key Sung, Guerre and Black Vanilla.

Repercussions #7 “Pioneers: Can”

Can were without doubt one of the most original and influential bands of the 1960s and 1970s, bridging electronic music, jazz, rock and classical with a wild, experimental approach to emerging electronic production techniques. The resulting sound – dubbed ‘krautrock’ by the British music press at the time – is a body of work that reverberates through the music of Portishead, LCD Soundsystem, Factory Floor, Kanye West and many more. In this episode of Repercussions, Stuart Buchanan takes a dive into their extensive back catalogue, via edits from a rare 2004 FBi interview with Irmin Schmidt, and brings the story up to date with remixes from Carl Craig and UNKLE, plus new work from two Can founders in their Cyclopean guise.
