No Sleep Til Bassline / Hanging A Horse By Its Two Front Legs

Key 16


From Pieces of 8 / The Flower Of Humanity

1995 / 2000

A very silly track but one I like. A simple breakbeat and percussion, and a random sample playing the melody. There is no bassline sample in the first mix, thus the title.

I redid this for The Flower Of Humanity, and really fleshed it out into a dance track, adding new parts, samples and beats. This incarnation uses only one sample from the original track, the bell/xylo sound. The organ sample at the start makes it sound very stadium worthy, in an Orbital sort of way. This might also be the first time I ever used any 303 type sounds in a track. Sad but true. Also I was beginning to use wave editing software to do post production on some of this stuff.

“Hanging a Horse” is another one based on a dream. I had a dream where, yes, you guessed it, a horse was being suspended by a rope from its forelegs. Having said that, no horses were harmed during the writing of this track.

No Sleep Til Bassline


This was the first incarnation of this little ditty, released under the EtherReal moniker. There is no bassline, and very little thought went into this track, but still it’s one of my favourites.

Hanging A Horse By Its Two Front Legs


This reproduction sounds more like Leftfield; more polished and more dancy. It was featured on the EtherReal album The Flower Of Humanity.
