So, I’ve given up on YouTube recommendations for the moment. But, thanks to something that no algorithm has yet been able to replicate, I’ve stumbled across this, which is absolutely perfect.
It’s taken from the 1st volume of LTJ Bukem’s excellent Earth series of compilations (long overdue a reissue if any record labels are reading this), which documented that fabulous time when hip-hop, drum & bass, acid jazz & trip hop collided. It reminds me of Photek’s equally excellent Into The 90s, which was included on the era-defining 70 Minutes Of Madness by Coldcut.
And that non-algorithmic method I used to find this little slice of heaven? Serendipity – when Google manage to replicate that, I’m becoming a monk.
