Timewarp alert. Timewarp alert. Mono journeys back 10 of your Earth years, to a time when Bomb The Bass and S-Express ruled da world and The Prodigy were probably just jiving back from school to do their homework 🙂 Pump up the volume, we say, and thanks to former member, now all-star guest-star TheFoxII, for taking us back to the bad old days. 🙂

TheFoxII – Cokal {REL#107}

Artist: TheFoxII
Title:
Cokal
Label:
Mono211
Catalog #:
REL#107
Release Date:
1997/10/01


Sadly, it’s just about time to say goodbye to TheFoxII, as he quits tracking in favour of MIDI stuff and DJ-ing.. but it’s nice to go out on a funky note, and this one’s typically kicking – disco cut-ups rule. In fact, this one reminds us of somewhere between The Bucketheads and The Goodmen (anyone remember them?) 🙂 In any case, da track fits pretty well into the wide gospel that Mono preach – as long as it’s eklektik and funky, it can make it. 🙂 Aaaaamen. (Oh, and this tune appears to get stuck in endless loops in MikIt, although MOD4WIN plays it fine.. doh!)

Artist: TheFoxII
Title:
Discodance
Label:
Mono
Catalog #:
MOD#67
Release Date:
1997/06/01


Ahaaaaa. TheFoxII appears over the horizon to offer a damn funky disco variant, nicely crafted cut-up style. Lots of fun in a club, and offering pretty wicked home listening too – none of that house rubbish that sounds great in clubs but like repetition personified when you buy a CD of it. 🙂

Mono’s favourittissimo Dutch duo return with this excellent melodic house track. Iso+TFII actually have their own techno band called Arf! (check out the link from the Mono webpage to their site), and sometimes play live.. and direct. 😛 A1200s in da houuze! 🙂

Title:
Inside My Head
Label:
Mono
Catalog #:
MOD#55
Release Date:
1997/01/10


Heh, the first of a couple of nice releases Mono entered in the music competition at The Party 6 in Denmark over Xmas. This track didn’t make the final, but as everyone knows, the choice is always pretty random anyhow. And TheFoxII knows how to kick it, dammit.. so have fun with this house styled thang.

TheFoxII – Rushmore EP {MOD#48}

Artist: TheFoxII
Title:
Rushmore EP
Label:
Mono
Catalog #:
MOD#48
Release Date:
1996/11/20


Another double-release, this time from TheFoxII, and the title track wins the award for the Mono tune which makes us jump around the most, ever. Yes, ever. Speed those housevocals up, throw in some breakbeats, we got a guaranteed barnstormer, it seems. As for the second track, it’s a smart return to the style of earlier TFII releases on Mono – those chords are an absolute bitch to loop, tho. 🙂

Artist: Various Artists
Title:
R:emissions Vol.2
Label:
Mono
Catalog #:
MOD#38
Release Date:
1996/09/19


An awfully long time after the first instalment of the R:Emissions, here’s the next generation. Hope you enjoy the remixes, and hope you know the originals well enough already. 🙂 Although a lot of people keep advocating this kinda remix project, it’s actually quite tricky to co-ordinate, choose the right mixes (yes, we decided not to use some), etc etc. But no doubt, we’ll get to R:Emissions 3. Eventually. (release 100, anyone?)


Tracklist:
01 – TheFoxII, Dreamfish – Habitation (Phunk Remix) [MOD] [FLAC] [MP3]
02 – Carebear, Subi – Drift (Navagata Remix) [MOD] [FLAC] [MP3]

TheFoxII – Three Days EP {MOD#36}

Artist: TheFoxII
Title:
Three Days EP
Label:
Mono
Catalog #:
MOD#36
Release Date:
1996/09/08


This wikked track was composed by TheFoxII last year, but not given a proper release, so Mono is happy to give it the attention it deserves. Some cute acid leanings, great dynamics, kicking percussion/effects, and those heavenly chords make this MOD a journey into headspace you won’t forget in a hurry. No, we really do like it. 😉

Release Date:

There’s nobody who goes down the straight and narrow techno path better than TheFoxII, and he proves it again here with this waaay stylish trance-style track. Full marks for original use of some Deep Forest samples too.. way to go, Foxy. 😛

Title:
Cascade mini-EP
Label:
Mono
Catalog #:
MOD#13
Release Date:
1996/06/05


The Justified Ancients of Mono return with a twirling, swirling takedown of a release from The Fox II, who’s decided to deconstruct a certain famous ambient band in his own inimitable style. And by golly, he’s done a smart job. The bonus track, “Habitation”, is another example of the wickedly original hard Dutch style, which I have extreme difficulty in categorising. Apart from it being k00l and the gang, of course. 🙂
