Great Moments In Electro: Drop The Pressure M@thaf@cka…

Fast forward more than 20 years from the last Great Moments, and we find ourselves in Bonnie Scotland. One Myles Macinnes has just been called the savior of dance music.

Typical understated British journalism.

While Destroy Rock And Roll was certainly chock full of retro electronic goodness, one track embodied everything we’ve covered in the series so far, and will stand the test of time.

M@thaf@cka’s gonna turn up the presshaaa…

I must have listened to this non-stop for at least a day and a half when it first came out. It was pure Electro, no question about it.

Taking a bit of Vince Clarke (that killer bassline was no doubt inspired by the Yazoo classic Situation), a twist of Daft Punk vocoded madness, and a whole lot of catchy (love me those synth stabs), he crafted not only one of the biggest anthems of 2004 (that breakdown is one of the greatest in dance music history), but also created- a Great Moment in Electro.

Absolutely spellbinding music video.
