ON OFF 8

ON/OFF 8.

WELCOME TO THE LATEST IN THE
‘ON/OFF’ SERIES(#8) WHERE, IF YOU’VE MISSED IT? WE’VE BEEN EXPLORING THE VARIOUS FORMS OF ELECTRONICA/INDIE BASED STUFF THAT THRILLS, CHILLS AN SPILLS. ORIGINALLY INTENDED AS A CONTINUATION OF THE ‘POST PUNK’ SERIES, IT’S EVOLVED TO INCLUDE EARLIER MEANDERINGS-FROM THE EXPERIMENTAL/AVANT GARDE/TO THE SLIGHTLY MORE STRUCTURED…
IT’S ALSO SIMILAR TO THE ‘INCHXINCH’ SERIES, WHICH TENDS TO LEAN TOWARDS THE MORE INDIE/GUITAR SOUNDS, THOUGH THERE IS OFTEN A CROSS-OVER BETWEEN THE TWO.
(IT COULD PROBABLY BE ARGUED THAT THERE ARE A LOT OF BLURRED EDGES AROUND DROP THE BISCUIT MIXES/THEMES ANYWAY?)…

SO, IF BY CHANCE YOU LIKE THE ‘ON/OFF’ MIX/ES, YOU MIGHT ALSO WANT TO CHECK OUT-
‘KRAUTROCK-SPACEROCK’ ,
‘MOTORIK!,‘HANSA’,‘MUTE’, ‘ELECTRONIC MONSTER’ OR THE ‘CROC’S’ PLAYLIST FROM WAY…WAY…BACK?

ANYWAYS-BACK TO THE PRESENT…
