Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.

Hard to believe this was 100% real using only projectors and carefully choreographed human/robotic movement…

Choice (Laurent Garnier) – Acid Eiffel

Some tracks help to drown out work, clean the house, play a game of cards, study, read, drive, walk, whatever. Once in a while though a track comes along that fully envelops you both emotionally and physically, leaving no room for anything else, and such is the case with Choice (Laurent Garnier) – Acid Eiffel. A swirling 303 acid line is soon joined by a sea of warm strings and crisply arranged 909 percussion, slowly introducing modifications to each of the elements on the main theme. At 13+ minutes this is an epic journey of emotive electronics.

I can still remember vividly the first night I was introduced to this track, and every time I hear it again I’m transported back to that perfect magical morning nearly 15 years ago as the sun rose slowly over the horizon, awash in a collective experience of innocence and dance.

It’s been a while since I posted something non-Monty related, so to break up the monotony I thought I’d post this older track that hit my ears today and I haven’t been able to get it out of my head since.

Aril Brikha (of Detroit classic Groove La Chord fame) crafts one of the most elemental and haunting combinations of lyric and atmosphere that I’ve heard in quite some time, and while the subject matter deals with the more depressing and harsh realities of love the euphoria of the melodic melding of strings, pads, and voice are pure emotive serenity.
