Heart Of Data

The first time I played Factory Floor's new single, Heart Of Data, I wasn't too struck on it. I must not have been paying attention because it is 6 minutes of sleek modern techno brilliance. Pulsing bass, waves of synths, crashing cymbals, kick drum and a sense of rushing to meet the future. It and the B-side are from their score for Fritz Lang's 1920s sci fi classic Metropolis, which they produced last year for the Science Museum. More please.

Wow, coincidentally I heard this for the first time last night - found it on the Guardian picks - and immediately thought of you and that you would like it! (I really do and have earmarked it for my ever-lengthening train journey soundtrack).
Love the fact this was commissioned by the Science Museum.

A thumbs up from me too. Nice.

That hits the Sunday morning spot!

I think the full score is being released soon.

It's definitely one for the train mixtape C.

I hope you're right Michael. I just ordered the 12". Looking forward to hearing it on vinyl.

Not my usual bag, but I like it!
