Rhotation (18) Into BPM

Hello, its been a bit of a tiresome week for me, so i decided to start Rhotation 18 somewhat more relaxt (for me) , two samplers, two double albums and for your pleasure ..two versions. The Rough Trade Shop compilation has a number of rare goodies and nice picks, same can be said for the Skint compilation, some great dancefloor hits that still do nicely in a party mix.

The Rough Trade Shop is an independent music store in the Portobello Road district of West London, England. It was founded in 1976 by Geoff Travis, and in 1978 spawned the famous Rough Trade Records, however, in 1982 the two separated and the shop remains an independent entity from the label, although links between the two are strong. At the same time the shop moved from its original location on Kensington Park Road round the corner to Talbot Road. In 1987 a second shop opened in Neal's Yard, Covent Garden. The opening of international shops in San Francisco, Tokyo and Paris but these were not a success and had to close. In 2007 they also opened in Dray Walk, Brick Lane in east London, claiming to be the largest record shop in the UK.

Musically, Rough Trade specialises in the post-punk genre, but carries items through a range of genres, mostly within the alternative or underground scenes. Recently the shop has released several compilation albums, each focusing on an individual genre such as indie-pop, electronica, country, singer songwriter, rock and roll and post-punk. It released a 4CD box set for its 25th anniversary in 2001, followed by Electronic 01 and Rock and Roll 1 in 2002. Every January since 2003 it has released a compilation putting together the best (in the opinion of the shops' staff) of the previous year's music entitled 'Counter Culture'. 2007 additionally saw the release of 'Counter Culture 76', reflecting the music of year the shop opened.

Rough Trade store has occupied a central and important role in the arena of worldwide electronic exchange for more than two decades. Spanning over 50 years of electronic enterprise, this collection positions modern producers such as Aphex Twin, Oval, Matmos and Schneider TM with early pioneers such as John Cage and Pierre Henry , Krautrockers Can , electronic pop bands such as the Human League and New Order and a host of other seminal electronicists such as Brian Eno, Raymond Scott, Kraftwerk, Non, Aux 88, To Rococo Rot and Fischerspooner. More than any other compilation, this shows the astonishing and near-impossible breadth and range of electronic music in the 20th-century.

Skint Records is a Brighton based dance music record label owned by JC Reid, Tim Jeffery and Damian Harris. It was created as a sublabel of Loaded Records, also founded by Reid and Jeffery. The label was, together with Wall of Sound, a leader in the big beat music scene of the mid to late 1990s. The label's roster at this time included scene leaders Fatboy Slim, Hardknox, Indian Ropeman, Freq Nasty and X-Press 2. Towards the end of the 1990s and at the start of the 21st century the label had expanded its range of releases to include more house based songs, and releases by legendary techno artist Dave Clarke as well as artists as diverse as Lucky Jim, Freq Nasty, FC Kahuna, Bentley Rhythm Ace and Ralfe Band. One mainstay band of the label has been the Lo-Fidelity Allstars who have changed and diversified their style along with the label.

Hey there, found you through sunbathinglizard who had good things to say about you. I was a bit overwhelmed while scrolling through your posts. Most of the didn't really sound familiar, but judging by the ones that did you must have quite some taste. So, I figured I'd keep an eye on you and link you up. Just as an FYI...
Cheers,
9@home
