1st post here for context. on with B...
baby ford - this is unortunately a mixed version of this track... towards the end the melody is from something else... i'll try to get a clean version some time... great track from an early "minimal" innovator. baby ford & zip were great at the last DEMF.
(mp3) baby ford - "no milk today"
basement jaxx - a really over the top disco/pop/house outfit. hard to pick a favorite, but this is the track that started me off...
(mp3) basement jaxx - "yo yo" from "remedy"
bassnectar - not as good as the name suggests, but some solid breaks with good samples. can get a little cheesy in that "action movie soundtrack" vibe, but i like the vocal samples in this one.
(mp3) bassnectar - "pleasure the bass nympho" from "diverse systems of throb"
ben sims - a little known hard techno dork that i kind of love. this track is repetetive, but well named... it's for those riding a climax out with thunderous, non-stop beats... kind of late 90s feel, but a good mixing tool with stepping filters.
(mp3) ben sims - "poise here" from "symbolism 004"
benga - this guy is outrageous. LOVE this new album. Posted a much barer track of his in my first dubstep post, but this is a banger! (benga?) anyway, it's old school rave through and through with something new, something special. BUY this album... FIRE!
(mp3) benga - "pleasure" from "diary of an afro warrior"
bjork - so ahead of her time, and yours... this is from the first album, debut, and always makes me happy. homogenic, her third (?) album is incredible. the new stuff is all over the map, but she picks great talent, has super fly aesthetics and while she can be annoying when over-played, she is a genius of the age
(mp3) bjork - "big time sensuality" from "debut"
blair - i don't know anything about this track except that i tracked it down off an old derrick carter mixtape, and of you play it loud enough, 30-something raver will appear out of nowhere and start house dancing. great inspirational diva vocals.
(mp3) blair - "life"
blockhead - i already blogged this artist and this track here. in fact, it was the first track i posted. i still love it. a house track from a hip hop producer.
(mp3) blockhead - "cheer up, you're not dead yet" from "uncle tony's coloring book"
boxcutter - totally geeked on his last album, "glyphic"... BUY it. this is a somber but beautiful 2step track with nice base and lovey dovey vocals. smashing for a gentle love in dance fest...
(mp3) boxcutter - "foxy" from "glyphic"
brian eno - preposterously talented and influential producer of such gems as david bowie, the talking heads and (cough!) the best album ever (maybe? probably?), "my life with the bush of ghosts" (with david byrne), he made four amazing solo vocal albums in the late 60s and early 70s. lots of early electronics here, and this track is precient in my opinion.
(mp3) brian eno - "kurt's rejoinder" from "before and after science"
bruce haack - child's entertainer, drug-crazed genius and another indispensible electronic pioneer. a great documentary on him (featuring mouse on mars among others) is here. i found it on piratbayan. laura loves this song, too.
(mp3) bruce haack - "electric to me turn" from "electric lucifer"
