The epic Drum’n’Bass METALHEADZ catalogue is for many different music lovers arranged in a specific place on the vinyl shelf & in a brain cell.
It’s easy to me to remember the 1st time i had the chance to discover this label. I was painting a wall, and the sound was totally appropriated for the vaporous mood coming from the colored aerosols particles. (Only after i understood the producer & co-runner of METALHEADZ named GOLDIE is also the GOLDIE from the early UK graffiti scene…). I guess each fan of this imprint are able to remember what was he doing when he was listening and how it changes his vision on the music.
GOLDIE – A Sense Of Rage (Sensual V.I.P. Mix)
Taken from the masterpiece entitled “Timeless“, 2 x12” released on Metalheadz – FFRR – 1995
The Dystopian producer GALAXIAN releases a committed E.P entitled “The Looting of Reason” on the great label Last Known Trajectory. Written before the uk riots of summer 2011, this solid project introduces some anticipated questions about the manipulations of
citizens humans by the oppressive society. The point is : everyone should make some conscious choices and to reclaim the meaning of human life. Interesting to see the reality is catching up so fast the fiction and more ‘funny’ to hear the government lying about the nonsense of riots. “The Looting of Reason” is a coherent EP, not easy to listen but it must be listen to the beginning to end more as cyberpunk novel than a simple electro tunes package. According to its rough theme, the production is cold & dark however in some way pretty trippy and of course very unique. By means of this release, GALAXIAN proves once again that music is more deep when it’s about social disintegration (and not about assimilation). Recommended!
