The timer keeps edging upwards this week- after yesterday's thirteen minutes plus existential dub disco from AMOR today I give you twenty minutes of dub techno heaven from Berlin. Released on Basic Channel's own label in 1994 Quadrant Dub I and II together are a/the definitive piece of mid 90s Berlin machine music, split over two sides of a 12" single, one mix fifteen minutes long and the other twenty. This record has the ability to suspend time. And space. It is twenty three years old and still sounds like it is the future.

Quadrant Dub II

A Lucas number belongs to a sort of Fibonacci sequence. The first two Lucas Numbers are 2 then 1. The third is 3 (2+1), the 4th is 4 (3+1), the 5th is 7 (4+3), then 11 (7+4), 18 (11+7), 29 (18+11), 47 (29+18), and 47 being a prime number AND a number in the Lucas sequence is thus a Lucas prime. ANd 47 is also your age, happy birthday.
