I’m trying to fill in the gaps in my knowledge of classic British dance music and my research — a lot of clicking, essentially — has led me to download a crop of albums I had missed out on but have always been curious about:
- Saint Etienne - Foxbase Alpha
- Primal Scream - Screamadelica
- New Order - Technique
- Inspiral Carpets - Life
These have aged remarkably well and it’s fascinating how they don’t sound that out-of-place today. Nothing gives me as much pleasure as new music (even if in this case it is technically quite old). Nothing, except perhaps the roundabout act of discovering it.
