COLL: Bustin' Out 1982 - New Wave to New Beat Vol. 2 Label: Future Noise

1982! I was barely a teen then. Since I actually remember a few of these songs from the 80s, I suppose I'm qualified to review this unique compilation... The central thesis of this compilation is that in 1982 you could find the "embryos" of electronica & dance music which would develop into today's well-defined genres. Synthesizer music & drum machines were in its infancy, and so-called "New Wave" hadn't really been defined yet. Thus, the "embryonic" music on this compilation ultimately led to the explosion of genres such as hip-hop, techno, industrial, house, dub, IDM, breakbeat, etc. Most of the tracks are rare, and most of the artists never made it big. But this CD is a tremendous history lesson. If you're a dance music fan, you can trace the DNA of your favorite genre to some of these "embryonic" tracks. Try: 4,5,6,8,10,12,13,14.

1. Proto-Goth/EBM. Teutonic post-punk with buzzy drone synths & German lyrics.
2. Proto-house. Girly fem vox, congas, disco-house groove, funky bassline.
3. Proto-house. Simple synth loops, breathy fem vox.
4. Early seeds of Detroit techno. Blippy synths, simple loops, Kraftwerkian beat.
5. New Wave. With his deep male vox & synth-heavy sound, Numan is the ancestor of Depeche Mode, Thompson Twins, Howard Jones, etc.
6. Early Industrial. Teutonic seriousness with claps, swirls, mechanical beats.
7. Spacey abstract jazz-electronica, pleading vox & urban decay aesthetic.
8. Early stoner dub by one of the legends of dub. Heavy bass.
9. Abstract jazz with conga beats. Proto-tribal?
10. One of my all-time favorite New Wave bands, Shriekback never got the recognition it deserved for heralding the birth of funky dubby house.
11. FCC: "Shit". Ethereal fem vox & New Wave Synths. 4AD mainstay heralding the goth sound.
12. Legendary song. Bumpin' bass! Godfathers of hip-hop, Miami Bass, & electro. Bump it!
13. Snappy beats & bursts - proto Drum & Bass.
14. Whoa! RARE track w/ crushing beat layers & hard vox. Proto-Industrial breakbeat.
15. Abstract, dark ambience, warbles that sound like turntablism, sound-collage
