Fly By Wire / Graphite - Last Voyage / New Beginning

After a shit day at work there's nothing I like more than to stick on some hard techno to clear away the stress and pain. Here's Dave Clarke(!) under a couple of different guises on his Magnetic North label from 1994.

Apart from a handful of decent tracks I never really understood what all the hype was all about. I remember one time hearing John Peel (who loved the man) refer to him as "the baron of techno". A subsequent Dave Clarke Essential Mix had that same Peel sample repeated every fucking five minutes or so. Cunt.

Dunno why I seem to be in 'hard acid' mode this week, but the Fly By Wire track is too much for Audacity, as it quit the first time I tried to rip it. A good companion to the Acid Air Raid track from below.

Did you ever get the Dave Clarke Peel Sessions 12"? I had it a long time ago but it got lost in the late 90's vinyl wars. Seem to remember the first track on that was pure epic dark Detroit rave stuff. You should track it down if you can.
