Speedy J ‎– G Spot

Genre:

Year:
Notes:
In the track "The FUN Equations", the word "FUN" is capitalized because it's not the obvious word 'fun' (as in enjoyment), but rather a reference to a feature on the Kurzweil K2000 synthesizer. The song title is taken from a section of the K2000 manual (also called "The FUN Equations"), which details the use of (math) functions as modulation sources.

The cover image is an obscured picture of a couple having intercourse "doggy style," a position often said to increase stimulation of the G-spot.

"What's next for +8?"

"The new Speedy J album is coming out and it is an absolute belter. It is really amazingly good.
You can take that to the bank. The last album was already unbelievable. After we released it, a ton of people flooded the market copying that sound.
And now it got even better. I think this is the best record that +8 ever released, period."

- Richie Hawtin, late 1994

And that, folks, is how good this album and Speedy J is.

A classic by Paap: Ping Pong and G-Spot are excellent tranced out techno; Lanzarote and Grogono blissful ambience; The Oil Zone, Extruma and Treatments stoner-dub-techno; and The FUN Equations' a fine cinematic electronic composition. No doubt one of the choice releases of the 90's.

And then there are folks that claim nothing good came out in 1995. Good grief, this is one of the best techno releases of all time. Fun equations, ping pong and Lanzarote are out of this world.
Any one of these tracks wold be worth purchasing the album.

An absolutely outstanding album, I love it. Fill 17 is one of the greatest electronic pieces of all time.

I haven't played this CD in years, and was surprised that listening to it now just how good it sounds. The style had moved on from the previous album "Ginger", and in places is very reminiscent of Orbital from this era. For me this is definitely a standout electronic album from this period.

This is an absolute classic album. I have the vinyl stored away and listened to this for the first time in years recently. Just reminded me why i loved it so much back in the day. This wonderfully diverse and atmospheric album is a great piece of art by a fantastic producer. The oil zone is up there with my all time favourite electronic tunes. Nice one Speedy J!

Just in case you were wondering:

The track Symmetry, the Japanese release exclusive bonus track, perfectly complements the otherwise perfect "G-Spot" album. It's a lush excursion into tranced out atmospheres and melody driven techno, something this album has an abbundance of. It has a superb melody, really touching and emotional, with a fantastic pad arousing from the background. The track patiently adds up layers until the subtle percussion is thrown in around the four minute mark. Really deep and hypnotic, so playing it either after the title track, The Oil Zone or Treatments won't leave you with the feeling of being trated to another album.

Another curiosity is that this release has two pages of text inside the CD booklet, but written in japanese though, so I have not been able to read, let alone understand, what the text is all about ;-)
