Things Have Gotten Weird Between Us

it was going so well. then came the guitars, effect pedals, keyboards, drums, radio noise and overwrought vocals making it a bit intense and rather strange. terms like no wave, art rock, industrial, experimental and avant garde got thrown around. then our eyes began to glow and things got weird between us.

Clear was a short lived UK label specializing in future electro and jazzish IDM that just about blew my mind in 1995. harboring early works from luminaries such as Global Communications, μ-Ziq, Autechre, Matthew Herbert, Acen, Kirk Degiorgio, Morgan Geist, etc. made Clear a mecca for fans of electronic music. here is a 20th anniversary mix to pay homage to one of my favorite labels. long live Clear.
