Boundary-pushing electronic duo and technological pioneers the Future Sound of London have charted a magnificent, unpredictable course throughout their multi-decade career, ranging from early rave staples to ambitious excursions into ambient soundscapes, psychedelic rock, modern classical, and more. Prodigiously releasing club records under various pseudonyms since the late '80s, Garry Cobain and Brian Dougans launched FSOL with the breakbeat house classic "Papua New Guinea" in 1991, following suit with the Accelerator full-length. After signing with Virgin Records in 1992, the duo began releasing more experimental, atmospheric material, including the highly regarded 1994 double album Lifeforms. They also sidestepped traditional methods of touring, instead broadcasting studio performances via ISDN lines. Following 1996's Dead Cities, the duo went on hiatus, re-emerging with the 2002 psychedelic opus The Isness, one of several releases credited to their Amorphous Androgynous alias.

In his brief liner essay introducing this amazing 21-disc retrospective, ECM founder Manfred Eicher states that he wanted to work with the Art Ensemble of Chicago after hearing late-'60s recordings by its members and witnessing their legendary performances in Paris during the era – which resulted in 15 recordings for various labels. Eicher didn't get his chance for nearly a decade, but the relationship between label, band, and colleagues continues. The release of this mammoth retrospective finds the label and the musicians celebrating precursors to their respective 50th anniversaries. The AEC, an outgrowth of the South Side's Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians have always been great architects of space (check the AEC's own collective debut, People in Sorrow). They took on the intense challenges put forth by Coltrane, Coleman and Taylor and used sound itself as a means to, and process of, investigation. ECM's has also been ready to engage space whenever possible: Their motto is "the Most Beautiful Sound Next to Silence."

First recognized as the dance duo behind the club hits "Stakker" (as Humanoid) and "Papua New Guinea," Future Sound of London later became one of the most acclaimed and respected international experimental ambient groups, incorporating elements of techno, classical, jazz, hip-hop, electro, industrial, and dub into expansive, sample-heavy tracks, often exquisitely produced and usually without easy precursor.
Notoriously enigmatic and often disdainful of the press, the group's Garry Cobain and Brian Dougans worked their future-is-now aesthetic into a variety of different fields, including film and video, 2- and 3-D computer graphics and animation, the Internet, radio broadcast, and, of course, recorded music…

'Blues is a tonic for whatever ails you. I could play the blues and then not be blue anymore.' - B. B. King. 'If you don't know the blues… there's no point in picking up the guitar and playing rock and roll or any other form of popular music.' - Keith Richards. WELCOME to the latest instalment of our 'Adventures in UK Club Land' exploring the 'Club Beat' - the roots of R&B, Ska, Gospel, Jazz, Soul, Mod and, in this chapter, BLUES. THE BLUES evolved in the late eighteen hundreds from a melting pot of homespun black music performed to small audiences across the American South. It wasn't until the 1920s, after the migration to cities such as Chicago that the genre was christened the Blues, a term initiated by the record industry, designed to appeal to a black audience. The blues continues to evolve today and, like its original counterparts, gospel, jazz and R&B, it plays a leading role in popular music, the roots of which can be heard in our unique 25-track compilation.
