Eat Static – Contact (Remixes) (12″)

I don’t put so much anonymous dance music on this blog and I do come across a lot when I’m out digging for vinyl. Reason for Eat Static was that I heard them first in 1994 with their “Implant” album and I sort of got the DIY trance vibe. They were from the heart of Somerset (where my Dad’s from) and seemed obsessed with UFO’s, I could see them studying or making Crop Circles in the Somerset field’s. Made up of Merve Pepler, Joie Hinton and Steve Everitt. (Pepler and Hinton had been into Krusty rock band Ozric Tentacles)

This is from 1998 and is a good example of the techno trance sound of the time, has it really moved on?  The De Niro (Chris Cowie) does all the right things, builds up breaks and builds up. Jon The Dentist (John David Vaughan) starts it off with all the War Of The Worlds howling and beats bring it on and taking it on space trip, the preferred mix by far!
