The names on this comp are completely unrecognisable, yet their vibes have a common source with the philosophy of Carl Craig, Fingers Inc. and other techno-soul visionaries ? that in electronic music, the sounds have to be designed with a human edge.

VARIOUS Pangaea

The songs on Pangaea 2097 cross over techno, house, drum & bass and dub, with their hybridity being exhibited all at once on the Alex Martins opening track, ?Summer Rain.? Martin's cacophonic breakbeats explode through the ambience and rock the BPM at infinity, like a forecast on the unlimited expression of electronic rhythms in the millennium to come.

His label mate, Orphic, brings it back down to calmer grooves, while reminiscing the optimism of early acid and house music on ?Splashing With The PD.? And in between a few selections of soft junglism from Simon Wells (aka Simes), Orphic surrealistically evokes the image of punks doing the pogo to ambient dub on ?Midnight Fields.? If only these artists weren't so anonymous, their tracks could set the standard for all sophisticated electronic/dance music in the time to come.
