Played these today, and loved a lot of it, especially the Killer DJ’s and Priori tracks and Roza Terenzi’s Reptant remix.

A small request: Could I ask people to label/identify the tracks they’re posting? It makes searching so much easier and will prevent this thread from becoming a broken link graveyard - there’s too many of those already. Thanking you in advance!

Had been planning on making a thread for this stuff for a while, glad to have stumbled across this one.

I don't know much about the original Northern Exposure mixes (there are some intriguing posts from Tim F scattered around various threads, I think), but I've been meaning to bring up these mixes which I listened to a lot this summer, and will hopefully be of interest to people posting on this thread:

Great thread, I love this kind of stuff but don't know much about it.

chap, Monday, 23 November 2020 14:41 (one year ago) link

I'm guessing this would fit the bill? Anyway, it's amazing.

chap, Monday, 23 November 2020 16:17 (one year ago) link

I posted the a-side upthread so sure!

brimstead, Monday, 23 November 2020 16:19 (one year ago) link

Another Ludwig AF, been a favourite of mine for a while -

chap, Monday, 23 November 2020 16:35 (one year ago) link

Can Bristol get involved?

chap, Monday, 23 November 2020 17:17 (one year ago) link

Roza Terenzi - Stylish Tantrum, first track released off this EP

1525, Sunday, 29 November 2020 18:44 (one year ago) link

the Roza Terenzi album from earlier this year is pretty sweet

brimstead, Sunday, 29 November 2020 23:47 (one year ago) link

Also Roza’s just released, very trancey Resident Advisor mix is just lovely, though uh does make the Northern Exposure connection very explicit:

three months pass...

never saw this thread first time around but I'm here now and that's what matters.

maybe this should go on the melbourne --> vancouver thread but I really enjoy how this general spiderweb of interconnected artists / sounds manage to take in trance, progressive/early-orbital, hardcore, breakbeats, jungle, basically anything that was going on between 1992 and 1999 (including uk garage at times) in what feels like a quite open-minded / open-hearted way - as if the unifying aesthetic is less some particular sonic brief or even some kind of ideological position other than "wow the 90s would have been a great time to go raving"

I love how this ~scene~ is both very broad and all-encompassing and yet the interconnectivity of it makes sense. Dance music singles don't ever exist a vacuum - they're always in conversation with each other through being played and mixed in different ways, of course - but it's the way that they make sense together that's really appealing. So something like "Body Hurt (Methane Mix)" is trance with a near-garage rhythmic pulse, but makes sense played alongside something as breakbeaty as "Modern Bliss."

boxedjoy, Monday, 1 March 2021 00:26 (nine months ago) link

I forgot to say in the above italicised comment that one aesthetic throughline that is not, like, mandatory or enforced, but is recurrent enough to be a real hallmark, is the very nineties / ravey vibe to a lot of the artwork. Hardly unique to this stuff of course, but it does give a sense of where a lot of the producers' heads are at.

Tim F, Monday, 1 March 2021 00:44 (nine months ago) link

Some recent tracks I have enjoyed:

DJ Life - White Bricks (Adam Pitts' Topsy Turvy Mix):

Furious Frank - Trip 2 Fantasy (Ludwig A.F. Worldwide Floor Destruction Mix):

AHJU - Cause I (1-800 Girls Remix):

Litherland - Abstentia (The End is in Sight Mix):

Tech Support - Werkseinstellungen Zuruckgesetzt (Parris Remix):

Will Silver - We Can Talk (Supreems Remix):

Adam Pitts - Magenta (Seth Wildblood Remix):

Rituals - Come Around Me (Baltra Remix):

Tim F, Monday, 1 March 2021 01:38 (nine months ago) link

Oh and I forgot about this track from B'Zircon (collaboration between Roza Terenzi and Fantastic Man), "Azure":

Tim F, Monday, 1 March 2021 02:54 (nine months ago) link

One of my great regrets is ignoring Rosa Terenzi for so long because I confused her with Ramzi, also of the AUS-BC axis but imo much less interesting. She, along with D tiffany, reptant, et al are making some of my fav music these days.

ed.b, Tuesday, 2 March 2021 15:14 (nine months ago) link

I LOVE Baltra

brimstead, Tuesday, 2 March 2021 22:25 (nine months ago) link

Listening to “Azure” again this morning I was struck by how much the aesthetic preoccupations of this scene can be explained by a copy of Sasha’s XPander EP from 1999, and tbh I’m here for it.

Tim F, Wednesday, 3 March 2021 20:29 (eight months ago) link

abso-friggin-lutely it’s that wide open aqueous/big sky feel

brimstead, Wednesday, 3 March 2021 20:58 (eight months ago) link

not much happens here, but WHOOSH

brimstead, Wednesday, 3 March 2021 21:01 (eight months ago) link

sorry, that’s “open sky” by dust-e-1 and side a of “inversia 1” by globex

brimstead, Wednesday, 3 March 2021 21:02 (eight months ago) link

More along these lines

and this, from St. Petersburg tho’

ed.b, Wednesday, 3 March 2021 22:45 (eight months ago) link

need to go in on this thread - really clicking with roza terenzi. just needed to sit down, get high and listen to full trax lol.

new d Tiffany / roza terenzi

flopson, Tuesday, 1 June 2021 18:54 (six months ago) link

This is monumental.

Some of these tracks cover so much ground and so many different ideas they're almost like jive bunny megamixes or miniature dj sets.

Tim F, Wednesday, 2 June 2021 00:50 (six months ago) link

feel like one of d Tiffany’s trademarks is this “aquatic skitteriness”, something in the way the hats and percussion skip around and run through filters and stuff, it’s so funky

brimstead, Wednesday, 2 June 2021 05:03 (six months ago) link

two months pass...

No youtubes up yet but these samples sound great.

Gonna just say it: The AUS/CAN connection (and related global instances of high-end 90s trance/prog flecked revival - though the best of it seems to be from Australia and BC) is my favourite thing in the last few years of new music.

damn late pass on this Bliss Inc Radiant Reality ep from 2019! Very cool stuff

Not part of this scene, but for anyone who enjoyed Rosa Terenzi's trance set for Resident Advisor last year, this 2019 set by Job Jobse is very very fun:
