Walk On Air

We got this record in last week, but I completely forgot about it until two days ago. I was in Hastings seeing a man about a dog (that is, a big haul of second-hand house and techno which we’ll be teasing into the racks over the coming weeks ), and in the course of digging found the original Amphibious Carmine EP (Catt, 1990) featuring the mix of ‘Walk On Air’ (not to be confused with the Aled Jones banger and near-namesake) that I’d venture is the best. This reissue combines that very mix with two previously unreleased dubs, and gives the A-side over to the slower, trippier Sunandmoon mix which I understand has long been a Balearic/techno-trance article of faith, and rare to boot. For me, nothing on this record matches the eyes-wide-shut exhilaration of ‘Mad Monks On Zinc’, but it really is an undeniable record all the same, the grooves louche and chuggy but properly locked-in and absolutely fucking relentless. That saccharine “Is there anybody out there?” vocal sample that drifts in and out, at first annoying, you soon find yourself waiting for, and then desperately craving. This is one of those rare records where you’ll find yourself happily listening to all four mixes back to back, then flip it back over and start again. Kind of essential, I think.

"Originally released in 1990 the Sun & Moon Mix of ‘Walk On Air’ has taken on near mythical status as a benchmark record that brought together strands of Ambient, Deep House, Techno and Trance. The B side sees the original Amphibious Carbine mix joined by two previously unreleased Dubs unearthed from the original DAT tapes."
