Lust - caution

Dave Angel – Lust

The Double K’s posting of Ron Trent’s Altered States the other day – and subsequent exchange with him and Mr P Rice – unearthed this for me. Nigh on fifteen years ago I would have sacrificed a limb to find out what it was, gliding in over the top of The Martian’s Stardancer halfway through Laurent Garnier’s set at the 1993 Tribal Gathering. In the age of t’internet, tune chasing is so much easier [Discuss] but it’s still taken a fair old while and it surprised me that it’s someone as familiar as Dave Angel. I’m also a little disappointed not to have spotted it at the time as it’s stock full of his trademark touches – the string stabs, bouncing toms, that HUGE swishing synth that still gives me goosebumps. And by god, does it tear along – far faster than the sedate pace I’m used to these days in my disco/house dotage.

Lust appears on the 1992 Outrages Angel EP on Outrage. Nice to see son of a Jazz musician Mr Angel is still active, producing and DJing around the world. And he’s an eco warrior to boot.

    Well yep clearly it is – basically because the Web makes it possible to ask so many more people at once! An audio clip posted to the right forum will sort out a tune ID more often than not.

    I've also heard that Shazam is good – call 2580 from a mobile phone and play a clip of the track down the phone; it will text you back with the details. I've never used it myself and don't know how good it is on old/obscure stuff. A mate tried to show me how great it was once; used it to try to ID an old acid house record I was playing at the time (Ride The Rhythm) and got sent details of completely the wrong song.
