Another eagerly awaited release from one of the most eagerly listened to artists on Mono – and phew, another scorcher. Mortimer remixes Twilight’s excellent “Crystal Rain” and takes it way above the temporal, onto another plane even. Chant those mantras, see the chords soar and the bass boom. 🙂

Blandest+Diesel8 – Mono backdrops! {REL#SP}

Artist: Blandest+Diesel8
Title:
Mono backdrops!
Label:
Mono211
Catalog #:
REL#SP
Release Date:
1997/07/20


Special release time, hah. We’ve got 2 cool (no, supacool!) Mono logos which both go very well as Windows backdrops. So we have a wicked black n white thang from Blandest/Acid, featuring all sorts of very nice superimposed subtlty, and an excellent rendered (?) logo from Diesel8 (ex.Razor1911) 🙂

Oki, so what you do to get a lovely Mono backdrop on your PC is as follows:

1. Load the logo into any paint program or Netscape/Internet Explorer.
2. Save it out into your Windows directory as a BMP 🙂
3. Right click on your screen, change your background pattern to all black, and your background wallpaper to the Mono logo. Centred, not tiled, style freaks. 😉

And that would be about it. Stay cool and watch out for more specials soon. 🙂 Those with Amigas can no doubt find something cool to do with the logos too, whee. 🙂

Subi – Uthfkisubi {REL#93}

Artist: Subi
Title:
Uthfkisubi
Label:
Mono211
Catalog #:
REL#93
Release Date:
1997/07/15


Well, Subi tries to confound us again with one of his completely unclassifiable songs, just when we’ve decided to put our techno output on a sublabel. Thanks _so_ much. 😉 This tune definitely rules, but should it go out on Mono or Monotonik?

Well, think of it this way – do mad screaming Prodigy-style songs full of guitar get played out more by the Chemical Brothers or the Aphex Twin? Yep, Chemicals every time, and since this is a close relative to jungle and a distant cousin of bigbeat, it gets released on Mono every time.

Make it mine. 😉

Ramone – Smooth Operator {MUL#21}

Artist: Ramone
Title:
Smooth Operator
Label:
Mono211
Catalog #:
MUL#21
Release Date:
1997/07/09


Oo, we iz _definitely_ operating correctly with this awesome hiphop jam from Ramone. Too blunted, cannot operate heavy machinery? 🙂 Heh, bass, saxophone, guitars, beats like you’re drowning in mud – just sit back and luxuriate? The track also features vocals from Rakim, one of the alltime hiphop heroes. Which is nice. 🙂 Rules rules rules.

Dreamfish – Unreal EP {MOD#72}

Artist: Dreamfish
Title:
Unreal EP
Label:
Mono211
Catalog #:
MOD#72
Release Date:
1997/07/05


A very interesting EP this, sent to us from his sekrit hideaway by Dreamfish in his last dispatch, along with the already-released “Armani’s Dreams”. These are self-confessedly ‘oldskool’ jungle tracks, with something of a 1993 spirit about them – but they’re actually damn original cos he doesn’t sound like he’s trying to emulate the Amen b-boy crew. In other words, by going back it goes forward. Amen. 🙂

Relief+Skizo – Ping Bong {MUL#20}

Artist: Relief+Skizo
Title:
Ping Bong
Label:
Mono211
Catalog #:
MUL#20
Release Date:
1997/07/01


First song of July, and a long-awaited new release from the Splif Prods crew. The amount of songs they produce is phenomenal, which always means it’s pretty tricky choosing, but after a little pointer from Relief, this track stood out majorly. It’s funky, it’s dirty, it kicks like a mule, and it’s everything your mother warned you about. 🙂 Btw, try to play it in FastTracker if you can – certainly MOD4WIN doesn’t like it and makes some interesting, if completely wrong static-noises. 🙂
