Those with purely balearic ears cover them now. We haven’t done one of these for a while so time for a new one for the bass bins. Previously we posted Mantronix ‘Get Stupid Fresh Part III’ and Original Concept’s ‘Knowledge Me Chant’ (as used by Masta Ace). This one comes from 1999 and is taken from the Super Collider album on Loaded Records. Super Collider were techno producer Christian Vogel and vocalist Jamie Lidell. It was a shame they didn’t do more together as this track (and the album as a whole) still sounds twisted. Play loud.

Chris Berg is a bit of an unsung hero. He has quietly got on with producing some of the finest sounding music out there – half the Fever Ray album, mixing The Knife and remixing Massive Attack (under his Flash pseudonym) to name a few. We have a lot of time for Chris at Test Pressing so we asked him to pick his favourite acid records as we know he has a love of the genre. So here it is, starting with ‘Acid Eiffel’ by Choice it goes from there…

Joe Hisaishi – Play On The Sands
Download

I got up to work on a radio show, but “Sonatine” (ソナチネ) is on Channel Neco. It`s one of my favourite Kitano films. There’s no need for language or sub-titles since its practically a silent movie. Simple in its violent beauty. A small group of hoods in hiding in Okinawa attempt to entertain themselves while they wait to die. An allegory for life. Or at least that’s how it seemed to me when I first saw it. “Beat” looks so young. His eyes these days are cold and animal.

Joe Hisaishi’s Reich-ian score plays while gentle humour endeavours to mask the inevitable. It takes some courage to play and laugh at practical jokes, relive childhood games while you pass what’s left of your time. Too easy to sit and worry your nails to the quick.

As it was with all the books and films, the sentimentality, I took my code from, revenge is swift and with no quarter. But like the final scenes of “The Wild Bunch”, ultimately in vain. Pointless bar honour.

The last shinkansen rattles the house.

Sunflowers dance on a beach.

Kitano’s new film “Outrage” opened in Japan on June 12. Not seen it yet but it doesn`t look like an easy ride.
