I always felt like I should have owned a C Cat Trance record. I didn't realize it was Marc Almond that was in Marc & The Mambas.
I don't think I ever heard much of that stuff at all.

That Chris & Cosey song is an all-time classic. Still indebted to Curtis forever for introducing me to that Space track. I've got the album now but I haven't heard it yet.

Anyway I'm loving this thread, thanks folks.

meisenfek, Friday, 15 January 2010 00:10 (4 years ago) Permalink

names, names.... we already had Die Doraus & Die Marinas and Palais Schaumburg.

although, to be fair, i do think of a different vibe with what i think of as 'minimal synth'.

gnarly sceptre, Friday, 15 January 2010 00:20 (4 years ago) Permalink

Stanton Miranda = in that case also equals Steve and Gillian of New Order w/ John Robie remix.

dan selzer, Friday, 15 January 2010 04:13 (4 years ago) Permalink

some weird connections just made...looking up Wheels Over Indian Trails I see that the name is taken from a peace of public art in Queens from a guy named John Fekner. Searching amazon for books on him I find mostly mp3s of all this crazy hip-hop he made through the 80s with graffiti artists and NY teenagers. I recognize the song Rocksteady from an old Porkchop mix. Porkchop's been performing freaked out acid house music as SPSS at gigs with lots of the NY minimal synth scenesters.

dan selzer, Friday, 15 January 2010 04:24 (4 years ago) Permalink

maybe one of the dudes from Excepter?

gnarly sceptre, Friday, 15 January 2010 18:04 (4 years ago) Permalink

Porkchop is in Excepter.

Does anyone know of any more stuff like the Robert Gorl "mit dir" song that kicked off this thread? I've listened to it 5 times in the past 2 days. It reminds me of Goodbye Horses and I love that song.

I guess I'm looking for stuff with a little more space in the recording -- like maybe just a kick and snare, a bass synth, a tiny melody and singing. A lot of this stuff on this thread has a little bit too much going on in it for me (I like it very minimal I guess). That said the Die Doraus and Die Marinas song posted is a new favorite.

daf were basically a bass synth and drums. i really like their songs that lean further into this threads territory, this really spaced out, sometimes melancholy, minimal synth pop

rionat, Monday, 18 January 2010 00:53 (4 years ago) Permalink

uh "this thread's" i mean

best example of this is "geheimnis" on fur immer, but youtube doesn't have it

but you know it's a good daf song if it has xylophone

picked this up at a flea market in france last week:
http://musiconvinyl.blogspot.com/2009/07/voyage-voyage-desireless.html

supposedly the a-side was a massive hit in europe but i've never heard of it, and to be honest, it doesn't do much for me. the instrumental b-side 'Destin Fragile' has the grandiose corniness down pat though.
