Track of the day #13

The origin of Ceramic Hello lays in prog rock, but thankfully, this early 80ies american duo settled for a minimal proto-techno approach before releasing their first album in 1981. Since that not much has happened appart from a growing cult-fanbase and the recent but long out-of-print reissue of the album, including an additional LP of bonus material, namely b-side tracks and demos. Out of those demos recorded in 1981-83 comes Sampling the Blast Furnace, a marvel of a song that hasn’t letf my turntables and my DJ bag ever since. It’s a tad dark and full of tension, but probably as forward-thinking as the early Chris & Cosey we’ve been writing about last week.
