Ian O’Brien – I Was There 1995​-​2000

I vaguely remember writing about Ian O’Brien‘s plan to release both old and new music last year, but haven’t heard anything about that since. The thing is, that I don’t hang out on SoundCloud that often anymore, but then again, I haven’t read about it anywhere else. How can one not write about one finest techno producers of the late nineties? How can one not write about him when he has released four CDs, all in October 2013? Damn.

There’s new music to be found on Understanding is Everything and Shihen (which comes in two versions: mixed and unmixed.) But since I’m growing old and like to reminisce about the past, I decided to feature this compilation containing one of my all-time favourite tracks by the man: 1996’s Monkey Jazz, the b-side of the equally excellent Mad Mike Disease.01. The Sunlight On The Horizon
02. I Was There (unreleased mix)
03. Viv Woman (unreleased mix)
04. Monkey Jazz (unreleased mix)
05. That Was Now (unreleased mix)
06. It’s An Everyday World (with Andre Bonsor)
07. See Ya There!
08. Tattoo Jazz (unreleased mix)
09. Secret Agent
10. Tap Sketch
11. The Magician (unreleased)

You will find this and all other releases mentioned above on Ian O’Brien’s Bandcamp store, plus a new Rarities/Remixes compilation and everything else he released on album throughout his career.
