The great Squarepusher, from July 2004, on the Warp label. He has put out many great records over the years in the drum & bass genre, as well as putting out an album that sounded like an updated take on the kinds of fusion albums Miles Davis was making in the early 70s.

Bruce Haack & Esther Nelson – “Motorcycle Ride” and “Nothing to Do” (1968)

September 19, 2008 at 12:33 am (Electronica, Music)

Bruce Haack started out making children’s albums in the 60s with Miss Esther Nelson. Later, he became a pioneer in the world of electronic music and made some groundbreaking albums such as Electric Lucifer and Haackula, which today sound very dated and very futuristic at the same time. Definitely worth checking out (check out article below).
This is from one of those earlier “children’s” albums (The Way-Out Record for Children) – though it sounds a bit like some of his later electronic stuff. It makes me wish I had had his children’s records back when I was a kid.

Kraftwerk – “Tour de France” (1983)

August 29, 2008 at 12:33 am (Electronica, Kraftwerk, Krautrock)

The original 1983 single of this Kraftwerk tribute to the French race. Kraftwerk are for all intents & purposes, the forefathers of techno.

I’m not sure of this is the official video of the song, or if someone put these images to music.  

NOTE: Please double click this video to get it to play.
