Re: Underworld mix featuring the lads

Not to mention they follow it up with an early AA track, which isn't so obvious.

Re: Which FSOL track am I thinking of?

How do you use the Youtube tags on this forum, out of interest? I tried pasting the URL between them with no joy. Does it have to be the full embed code?

Re: Which FSOL track am I thinking of?

Perhaps it's a tribute? Some of the sampling on the I:Cube track sounds very Environments-y, which is out of character with the rest of the album (more French house and Detroit-y stuff).

Re: orb fans (manchester)

I'm going to the event in Leeds on the same tour. Let's be honest: the first two Orb albums are by far the best, so it'll be great to see a live show that cuts out all the late '90s crap.

Which FSOL track am I thinking of?

Should be an easy one. Skip to 1.09. I'm certain this is an FSOL sample but I can't recall from the top of my head which track it comes from. Half of me thinks it's Lifeforms era (so I:Cube sampled them), the other half thinks it's Environments era (so they sampled I:Cube). Pretty cool track either ...

Re: Environment FIVE: out 8-Sep-2014

As mentioned on the last page, I did a special radio show recapping my favourite parts of the Environments albums (plus a couple of extras from the post-Virgin era) to promote the new album. Nothing you guys won't have heard before, but if you're curious here's the Soundcloud link: https://soundclou...

Re: Environment FIVE: out 8-Sep-2014

Point Of Departure is fucking mega. Great way to start the album. Very strong ending as well. The stuff in the middle didn't sink in too much on first listen but I haven't had chance to give it a focused listen. On Monday I'm doing a special episode of the radio show recapping the whole Environments...

Mine arrived in the post today. I got a "Your order is complete" email last night. Can't wait to listen.

Postman Pat hasn't delivered mine yet. Hopefully it will arrive tomorrow or I'll be getting twitchy.

Remember how well the Mojo award went down - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G5IW-BnwBag Ha, this is great. Fair play, he does seem more self-aware and self-deprecating there than in other media appearances, possibly because he's stood in front of a room of drunk industry people who aren't so tolera...

Re: Aphex Twin - SYRO

Oh completely, it's a really depressing bandwagon-jumping track from a band who never went near bandwagons before. When jungle came along, Orbital's response was Are We Here?, which takes a jungle influence and does something completely new and exciting with it. Beelzedub is the first Orbital track...

Re: 1994 program/film that FSOL did music for

He's very self-congratulatory, haughty, pompous, talks up his own music and outlook endlessly and is frequently extremely dismissive of other musicians and prone to making sweeping criticisms of whole scenes and styles. In that recent Lifeforms article that was posted here he states "DJs had an illn...

Re: 1994 program/film that FSOL did music for

As much as I love their music, Gaz always comes across as a massive wanker in interviews. I'm not surprised Brian doesn't bother saying anything.

Re: Environments 5 out 15th September

I'd have to go for 2, then 4, 3, 1... all pretty closely matched though.
It goes in reverse order for me: 4, 3, 2, 1. Which bodes well for this album.

Re: Environments 5 out 15th September

A lot of talk in this thread about Gaz reconnecting with the FSOL... what's the backstory to this? Exactly how involved has he been with the previous Environments albums? I read that radio interview transcript where he seemed to be writing off the Environments series to some extent as just archive m...
