Re: Fractional Difference - Exploring FSOL song-by-song

EBS 5 was my favourite EBS mix for a long time along with 4 & 6 close behind. Awesome, unique atmosphere with this weird narrator, and lot of interesting unknown stuff to explore. Almost everything on there completely unheard for me. Incredibly dark and eerie in parts (that "Elegi" tra...

Re: Edge Video Magazine interview - July 1992

Yeah, remember have read something on your site :)
So wow, for 1991 this was a pretty pioneering piece of electronic music!

Re: Edge Video Magazine interview - July 1992

Brians worst nightmare is not being able to smoke a spliff? :D

Interesting to hear Lifeforms track playing in background when it was still 2 years until release.

Re: Environment Seven Trilogy

Cool, thanks, at last some (good) news. Recent releases were all very good, if 'Rituals' is at least on par with them I'm fine with it.

Re: Fractional Difference - Exploring FSOL song-by-song

Very interesting reads everything. I really wonder what Gaz & Brian are thinking of "Alice..." today. And how it compares in their view to the Isness. I personally would also view The Isness as the album I prefer from that era. "Alice..." is far from bad, I listened to it qui...

Re: Fractional Difference - Exploring FSOL song-by-song

I remember seeing this album in various music stores in 2002/03 and hesitated for quite a while buying it after I really started to get into The Isness because I thought of this to be another tedious remix collection of an old dance track:) was positively surprised when finally getting around lendin...

Re: Fractional Difference - Exploring FSOL song-by-song

Strange, that it was during those 4 years of hiatus when I discovered FSOL, first only with DC & Lifeforms, and around 2000 I began interesting for electronic music more general, looking for stuff similar to FSOL and The Orb, and I bought the missing pieces in FSOL's discog, ISDN, Accelerator an...

Re: Fractional Difference - Exploring FSOL song-by-song

@Neil For DC material from the archives Vol.5 is best I suppose, the tracks on there are from a scrapped DC-successor album from 97/98, and in a very similar mood, dark, beat driven tracks and a very nice flow throughout. Otherwise a lot of tracks from DC-area are scattered across the whole archives...

Re: Fractional Difference - Exploring FSOL song-by-song

Great write up as always! DC will always be the definite fsol album for me I guess. Perfect flow from start to finish, also WHE fits perfectly imo. It was my first fsol album and the first electronic music release I bought at a time when I listened mostly guitar based stuff. Maybe it's because I hea...

Re: Fractional Difference - Exploring FSOL song-by-song

Very interesting reads! Keep up the good work, really looking forward to any new piece! Interesting that you describe "Cascade 3"/"elaborate burn" as dark and unsettling - don't really feel it that way, the only Lifeforms-related track I would describe as dark and downright distu...

Re: RSD 2021 Releases

Whoa, that's some heavy "in yer face" stuff on there! But also suprisingly atmospheric.
Would agree, definitely the most 'IDM'-sounding FSOL release so far. Great stuff

Re: FSOL - Music for Three Books / Music from Calendars

I actually do miss some of the tracks I really hoped would make it on the album - if I had to choose a 'best of' from the calendars 2017-2019 it would have been a quite different tracklist I'm afraid :) lots of the dark and brooding stuff on there, think I would have prefered the more melodic pieces...
