Transmission#51 - Polarity

Balance, equilibrium, cohesion. These are constantly recurring themes at play whenever a new episode takes shape. How to tame and shape a spectrum of contrasting moods across 14 or so tracks without jeopardising the journey. It's all about Polarity.

A warm and nostalgic feel to the start to this one, with the gorgeous Satisfaction by Bodhi kicking things off and setting the mood. An excellent Frits Wentink remix and a blistering piece of high impact, percussive 4/4 by Beesmunt Soundsystem stand out too. But it is the Kenny Larkin Detroit Mix of Inner City's Share My Life which is the centrepiece here. One of those rarest of things, a 20 year old record that has resisted both the 'digital revolution' (only available on vinyl) and still sounds like it could have been made this week. Timeless, classy house at its finest.

Special thanks to Joel Gillespie for letting me use his wonderful photo of Amsterdam in the snow in 1978. Visit his photostream at flickr for the narrative behind the photo.

This is the last episode of 2014 so have a great Christmas, thanks for listening and see you in 2015.
