A great release from Orbital with remix assistance. On this release Chime Crime finally get a formal release after first being heard on the great album Various ‎– Live At The Brain from 1990.
This 12" is the only place to get "Steel Cube Idolatry (Dave Angel & Dave Dorrell Mutation)", a wicked psychedelic techno masterpiece with a full song structure. The highlight is a dramatic, beatless break built on a very long sample from Ennio Morricone's "Falls", from The Mission (Original Soundtrack From The Motion Picture). The one time I played it at a house party, everyone was way into it and the DJs all wanted to know what this amazing track was.
Does anybody know where Joey Beltram sampled the up-lifiting sample from which kicks in around 2m35 ?
Umm, Beltrams remix of Chime, it's on the EP. I'm talking about that track and the sweeping strings.
Dave Angel & Dave Dorrell, not Joey Beltram. The sample is from "Falls" by Ennio Morricone (see my review in a separate post).
Went Tyu
AFAIK it's from "The Mission" soundtrack by Ennio Morricone
