Listening Recommendation
 Speedball
Arranged by Tyranoid vs Michael Strongstream


I think this track is getting alot of bad press here for whatever reason.

I play this track sometimes in clubs in England and people love it - simple as that. It's also part of my workout set.

Yeah it's somewhat cliche'd but they do it well and obey the rules of the genre.

And while the granular ratings of it's Technical Merit, Artistry and Nostalgia don't add up to top marks, on the whole this tune ROCKS and I love it!

 FTC - Infodroid (Fade 2 Ambient Gray Mix)
Arranged by FTC


Another interesting and filtered opening, with some actual bass coming through leaves you wanting more, and you're not disappointed. Some really nice synth instruments take the sustained notes, and a nice weird sounding three-note hook gives some of the weirdness that Fred was trying to convey. Somehow the normal strangeness of FTCs arranging meshes with Fred's musical strangeness to produce something special. Sonically I can't fault it except that the bass could be warmer. There's a worrying moment at 2:07 when it sounds like this might turn into Thanatos, but it soon passes. Brilliant.

Back In Time 2 CD

Back in Time 2

by Various Artists

Back in Time 1 broke a lot of ground, so the sequel aimed to raise the bar. The second album used some extraordinary talent such as Peter Connelly, Jogeir Liljedahl, Tonka and Danko to provide a much more varied soundscape than the first. Highlights include the beautiful orchestral version of "Forbidden Forest", the ultimate feel-good remix "Wizball 2000" and the spine-tingling "Galway is God" Rambo/Green Beret medley, as well as featuring a remastering of the first ever C64 Remix: Rob Hubbard's own "Thalamusik" from Zzap!64 issue 26. Round that off with an extended club mix of Comic Bakery and Fred Gray's own funky interpretation of his own Batman theme, and you've got a CD which still stands the test of time today.
