BGRGPOOMC, a rainbow of singles

"Lots of people were like “oh, I recorded a car backfiring & pitched it down & combined it with some bees buzzing & 100 plugins to make a kick drum” & I just decided that this was really stupid when you could use a 909 & it would sound way better."
In 2004, Donnacha Costello released the Colorseries, a collection of ten 12-inch singles that became a building block in the rise of minimal techno. In 2007, Costello released a single CD, best-of compilation version to mixed but generally positive reviews; it's crime was being an abridged collection. (2007 interview)
Now, you can stream the entire collection at Costello's bandcamp. Or, for a curated digest, you can listen to Ryan Elliot's 2005 Mix that blends all twenty tracks over the course of an hour.

I caught the darkness baby, and I’ve got it worse than you.

...this particular technicolour trench coat is stitched together from black leather, and fastened with a lot of safety pins and zippers: its sinister sounds are both haunted by the past, and haunting us toward the something-to-be-done. Like the saying goes: the darkest hour is just before the dawn. Our traumatized collective unconscious - the victim of social, political, cultural, and environmental shocks - is not a blank slate, but rather a pile of rubble that requires considerable rebuilding. There is much work yet to carry out. And really, why be blank when you can be bleak?
