Life in a Northern Town (MNCHLS Fieldwork Edit)

by The Dream Academy



I wanted to try my hand at a long-form blissed-out minimal techno track à la The Field (Axel Willner) by using assorted microsamples taken from "Life in a Northern Town," a song by The Dream Academy that, for my money, is quite easily among the finest tunes the 1980s bestowed upon mankind.

And it turned out to be quite the undertaking: Atogether I worked on this track for about two years, on and off. Mostly off.
