exploding diva-bliss

luv luv luv this particular vibe - bliss-2-dark - ecstasy edging into the panic-rush

late 1992 - 1993 - early 1994 are the temporal coordinates

[late addition via Sadmanbarty Dissensus thread on technological abstractions of the human voice)

happy hardcore continues the divas but the sense of shattering -  a dangerous excess - has left the music, leaving just fastbounce

meanwhile the ambient jungle carries on deploying divas - beautifully, but it's more exquisitely done,  in the classy style of all that Masters of Work type house

perhaps cos it's no longer pitched-up, but timestretched so it sounds more like proper singing, properly human

whereas the stuff that E-lectrifies, transfixes,  is the "closer to fireworks than soul" stuff

these would be cusp works on the edge between diva-distress and nu-smooth

get on up like a faxmachine

a Pink Floyd reference and a James Brown reference in a single song

chugging Euroteknohaus that i'd never heard until this moment

yet i'm not honestly sure i've heard this classic before either, somehow

or this either

love the artist's real name - Aad de Mooy
