Sundaze 1552

Hello, last week i downloaded a decent copy of the new Star Wars but when i played it, within seconds upon watching a female scavenger in the desert, it dawned on me here's Skywalker 2 and yes within 10 mnutes she pulled out stunts with a stolen Millennium Falcon not even Han Solo would have dared..the force must be with her. A droid has important information that must be delivered to the good guys, so the bad guys hunt for the droid on a desert planet explosions non stop on and off planet. Then when they jumped to safety straight in the hands of han solo who brought along more enemies more explosions and near death finally safety but some bitch phoned the baddies and real time minutes later back to bombardments. I had enough Disney is treating us as idiots, i understand now why JJ Abrahms didn't want to do it, they must have offered him a shitload of money to film this. A bunch of monkeys could have written better dialogue. A 1st grader could have made a plot that had less holes in it. What a shocking imbecilic state the US moviegoers must be that they like this (IMDB 8.6) Or maybe IMDB is for sale/corrupt, a company like Disney understands the importance of these numbers and will know how to value it accordingly....

In 1998, Youth (Martin Glover) decided to set up, LSD - Liquid Sound Design as Dragonfly's sister label, specialising in chilled out soundscapes, sonic beats and mellow grooves. Its only fitting that the last and eight posted befalls it's founder, not that his spirit wasn't fully present these last weeks, but today's albums all bare his name.. N'joy

Martin Glover, also known as Youth or Orion, (born 27 December 1960 in Farnworth, Lancashire) is a record producer and a founder member and bassist of Killing Joke.

Glover originally named himself Pig Youth after the reggae chanter Big Youth, who was popular with late 1970s London punk bands. At age 15 he was in a punk band named The Rage, which toured with The Adverts. Later he joined 4" Be 2" - a band formed by John Lydon's brother Jimmy Lydon - and recorded the "One of the Lads" single with them.

Glover is most famous for being the bass player in Killing Joke. He left the band in 1982, together with Ben Watkins he released 2 albums, The Empty Quarter and Delerium, soon after he founded his own commercially orientated dub funk band Brilliant, which recorded one album in 1986 before later disbanding.

In 1989, Youth and Alex Paterson started the WAU! Mr. Modo label. Their early releases of a selection of industrial techno dubs and heavy sound system dubs from artists such as Napthali, Manasseh, Bim Sherman and Jah Warrior are long deleted and fetch high sums in private sales.

Youth's connections with dub continued in the mid-1990s when he was asked by Adrian Sherwood to remix some of Bim Sherman's tracks for a reworking of the Miracle album. He also recently appeared on a Ted Parsons/NIC dub album, contributing a remix which opens with a sample from Glen Brown's "Version '78", a track originally released on the South East label.

In the early nineties, Glover formed techno and house music duo Blue Pearl together with American singer Durga McBroom. They scored a handful of hit singles including their blue vinyl debut "Naked In The Rain", which reached #4 in the UK Singles Chart and was also a #5 dance hit in the U.S. in 1990.

Glover is credited with founding the first psychedelic trance record label, Dragonfly Records, as well as the Liquid Sound Design and Kamaflage Records labels. He is well known on the psychedelic trance scene, collaborating with Simon Posford and Saul Davies as Celtic Cross, with Greg Hunter and Simon Posford as Dub Trees, and on the project Zodiac Youth. He has performed both full-on trance as well as chill-out DJ sets at several Return to the Source parties, and released the Ambient Meditations 3 mix album on their label in 2000. His Butterfly Studios were also home of the Return to the Source offices circa 1999-2002.

Glover is a member of the band Transmission, together with Simon Tong of The Verve, Paul Ferguson of Killing Joke and Tim Bran of Dreadzone. He also played guitar on several tracks on the 2007 Client album "Heartland."

In mid-2010, Glover teamed up with Alex Paterson (The Orb) to compile a retrospective compilation album of tracks from the WAU! Mr Modo label. The album titled "Impossible Oddities" was released on CD and double vinyl on 25 October 2010 via Year Zero records.

On 27 October 2012, during the International Festival of Music Producers and Sound Designers SOUNDEDIT, Glover was awarded The Man with the Golden Ear Award

This is a solid collection of dubby psychedelic goodness. It's not as purely dub as Dub Trees, more like dub trance
