Whiskas – Braah {MOD#71}

Artist: Whiskas
Title:
Braah
Label:
Mono
Catalog #:
MOD#71
Release Date:
1997/06/23


The second release from Whiskas on Mono, and a rather classy track here. Spooky, isn’t it? The chords would scare anyone on a dark night, at least. 🙂 It’s nice to get a change from Mono’s customary triphop and jungle stylee, too – we guess people forget sometime that there’s a third part of our infernal triangle, and it’s very much the minimal techno angle that turns us on. A little weird? Maybe. But variety is the spice of life. 🙂

Artist: Iso
Title:
 We’re Here
Label:
Mono
Catalog #:
MOD#70
Release Date:
1997/06/19


The return of Iso to the Mono stable with a rather excellent new track – Orb-like start, then triphop all the way. Great drums, too. Another interesting fact that you might not realise would be that the vocal sample came from.. aww, shucks, I can’t give it away. Work it out yourself. 🙂

Twilight – Hidden {MOD#69}

Artist: Twilight
Title:
 Hidden
Label:
Mono
Catalog #:
MOD#69
Release Date:
1997/06/12


Whooooa. Swooping in over the horizon, it’s another dangerously funky track from English wunderkid (hah!) Twilight. It’s got the lot, the distorted 303 phun, the oldskool rap, the sledgehammer beats, and the scratching to make you spill your drink all over the place. 🙂 Watch out for more Mortimer Twang remixes of Twilight in the near future, incidentally – those two got some real synergy going on. Whatever that means. 😛

Bogdan – Humfree EP {MUL#18}

Artist: Bogdan
Title:
Humfree EP
Label:
Mono
Catalog #:
MUL#18
Release Date:
1997/06/09


Finally sorted, a debut guest-release from Bogdan. Although we may have mentioned something about him before, all you need to know is that his email address is karl@cse.unl.edu, and he’s previously been very sceptical about releasing through groups. This is certainly original – perhaps closest to the spirit of Squarepusher and Aphex Twin in their most junglistic modes. But different. As they say, nice.

Artist: Substance
Title:
Da Phonk EP
Label:
Mono
Catalog #:
MOD#68
Release Date:
1997/06/05


Quiet, please. If I could have your attention? Finland’s entry to this year’s Eurovision Song Contest is “Phonk Phaq”. The orchestra will be conducted by some blunted kidz from the ghetto. There will be a fine jungle remix courtesy of Substance’s brain ™. And the lord shall be happy, and he will decree that it was good. And people will cherish and enjoy this Mono release forever. Amen.

TheFoxII – Discodance {MOD#67}

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. 🙂

4TThieves + Ramone – Morphology (Intoxicated remix) {MUL#17}

Artist: 4TThieves + Ramone
Title:
Morphology (Intoxicated remix)
Label:
Mono
Catalog #:
MUL#17
Release Date:
1997/05/27


Our rather dangerous man in Germany, the most blunted Ramone, returns with an intoxicated remix, and isn’t it wicked? Wicked in the hellish sense, of course. Check out the original from the Mono archives, way back, and find out how much it’s changed. Which is a lot. We’re sorry, are we boring you? 🙂 Great tune tho. 🙂

Twilight+Mortimer Twang – The Future (remixes) {MOD#66}

Artist: Twilight+Mortimer Twang
Title:
The Future (remixes)
Label:
Mono
Catalog #:
MOD#66
Release Date:
1997/05/22


We’re delighted to announce the return of the man known as Tee, and this track is the first remix he’s done for Mono. Twilight’s chemically enhanced original gets taken to bits, repainted, and put together backwards, and the grainy precision of Mortimer’s remix is a joy to behold. 4 channels can still be way ahead, see? The decision to put two different remixes in one MOD is original too. And it even works. 😉

Whiskas+Substance – Phtalate (remix) {MOD#65}

Artist: Whiskas+Substance
Title:
Phtalate (remix)
Label:
Mono
Catalog #:
MOD#65
Release Date:
1997/05/16


The first track from Whiskas to go out on the Mono label, and it’s a large, scarily detailed remix of his good friend Substance. Never mind the size, listen to the depth – this is really stretching four channels as far as it can possibly go. Total originality is what the crowd wants, and it’s what the crowd gets. 🙂
