I like basically everything so far. Even overrated stuff like Blawan.

This last stretch was a bit barren for me in terms of stuff from my list making it - all I had was Brutalga Square at #21.Still plenty of goodies though. Love Cry is easily one of my favourite Four Tet tunes, far and away better than most things I've heard from them. Aeroplane - Whispers and the Camino Del Soul remix are right up my street at the moment, Whispers especially. Life's A Beach I'm enjoying way more than West Side.

Fizheuer Ziheuer I almost voted for but I dunno, something about the length of it made it fit awkwardly with most other things on my list. It's kind of a classic anyway, obvs.

Even though I'm not like a raving Villalobos stan I'd be very curious as to how a poll of his tunes would pan out.
― Tim F, Wednesday, 22 August 2012 12:51 (9 months ago) Permalink
lots of stuff i love but some v weird inclusions, that partial arts thing, i literally can't even remember what that sounds like. or "mushroom" for superpitcher seems an odd choice, though i don't know what one track of his i'd pick. the mfa remix i guess will probably feature.

That Partial Arts tune is of an era of Kompakt tunes where I listened to them a fair bit at the time and then never again. This covers basically everything the label did from 2006 onwards mind.
― Tim F, Wednesday, 22 August 2012 12:57 (9 months ago) Permalink
bit disappointed 'out there' wasn't on the noms list, that's my favourite of the studio tracks. might also have thrown a vote to either the kylie or shout out louds remixes. ailtough none of them really fit the brief to my mind.
xp. i voted for partial arts, kind of as a representitive of all those sparkly kompakt late 2000s tunes.

To be clear I do think it's a great tune! But I had to think for a moment to remember what it was and was startled to see my own description quoted...

Mushroom isn't my favourite Superpitcher but its probably one of the more widely heard ones, especially as its on Mayer's Fabric mix. Would be quite surprised if its the last Superpitcher tune we see here.
Trauermusik is marvellous in a widescreen summer headphones listening track but it's never made me want to actually dance and I couldn't imagine hearing it in a club, but at the same time that's not really the point of the tune. Think I prefer that 07-08 era of Kompakt to the ones immediately before and after it (obviously 00-02 is the best).

fizheuer's appeal does not wear off for me at all. i wouldn't listen to it over and over again, but every time i go back to it it's still entrancing. when making my list i listened to a ton of stuff that i have loved at some point but haven't heard in a while, but i only voted for things based on the effect that they have on me right now, rather than memories of how i enjoyed them, and fizheuer and a few other villalobos tracks totally surprised me. i don't identify as a raving villalobos stan, but i guess my list makes me look a bit like one.

I'm far from a Villalobos stan and didn't vote for anything here (except maybe Belle Epoque 06, can't remember) but Fizheur is fantastic.

would have given my #1 to Losing My Edge. That Partial Arts track is silky smooth - anything else by them people recommend?

There's a follow-up called Telescope, which is pretty good, and maybe a couple of early non-Kompakt singles but not much else.

Partial Arts was Ewan Pearson and Al Usher right? So search other stuff they did but not under that name, like their beautiful remix of Feist.

Trauermusik is A+ kompakt gold! P.A. Never got close to that level of euphoric wonder, which is a shame - though pretty unfollow-up-able

I haven't really paid much attention to his stuff post-Cortney Tidwell remix but I remember being really surprised to find out he looks like an old lady from a UK soap.
― Matt DC, Wednesday, 22 August 2012 15:28 (9 months ago) Permalink
he's still done some great stuff since then, the junior boys and kelley polar remix (with al usher) were both excellent. agree about the tone of some of the writing tho. oh and his remix of 'am' by flowers & sea creatures is as good as anything he's done.

Al Usher's Lullaby for Robert and the Bogdan Irkuk remix are definite recommendations and pretty much in line with Trauermusik.

i know im just jockin but that frankie knuckles remix with antony makes me want to go down on dudes, in a good way― max, Friday, January 25, 2008
I think (maybe with some time, to echo arguments made elsewhere on ilm these days) that knuckles remix might stand out as one of the better things to come out of H&LA. in context, it's proper garage, done like no other nowadays. it's lush, the production is both restrained and faultless. and I agree that tune is impossibly catchy!― blunt, Tuesday, February 12, 2008

45. Ellen Allien and Apparat - Way Out (251 points, 9 votes)Year: 2006Youtube: http://youtu.be/zxeQ85PYChc
In terms of pure sound, nothing in 2006 rivalled techno goddess Ellen Allien's collaboration with ex-boyfriend Apparat: these immaculately crafted tracks with their gorgeous textures and restless, propulsive rhythms made for some dizzyingly dreamy head music. This was the default Sunday morning record of 2006, the perfect accompaniment to sitting back, sipping tea and watching the sun rise as we came gently down; it was also the default DJing tool, with 'Way Out' an inevitable anthem at most parties. Its constant presence throughout 2006 - more than any other, this was an album I lived - was immensely satisfying. -lex pretend
