CJ Bolland ~ The Prophet (FFRR Records)

Postby A-Cube » Thu Oct 30, 2008 8:38 pm

1997 yet again, the techno-era with perhaps a symbol of this era, a track so simple and yet so powerful that still influences many to our days. It's CJ Bolland's The Prophet

FFRR records is based in London and was founded by Pete Tong. Its archive varies from hip-hop to hardcore techno.

As for CJ, though he was born in England it's in Belgium where it all started for him. CJ has been active in the scene since 1991 and founded his own label Mole Records in 1992. The Prophet is probably the Bolland anthem and his most famous production to our days.

What can you say about this track? Its bass-line and elements are as usual courtesy of the 1990's sound, but what really gives it a special feeling are the vocals added from the movie The Last Temptation of Christ by Oliver Stone and are narrated by none else than Willem Dafoe. I love the breakdown on this one and its aggressive bass really contributes to the cause of the lyrics.

One word for it: L-E-G-E-N-D-A-R-Y

Welcome to DJ.Malaria you may wonder why I called this group Dj Malaria.
Just like Malaria takes over a person's body when it hits them i want my music's originality to control the soul of whoever hears it in that sense my music is more powerful than Malaria,and I'm sure it will but in a positive way of
course.

If your trance was a pretty blonde ballerina; then what I listen to is a peed-off bulky bouncer pounding the living shit out of your ballerina.
