50/Fifty Coming Down: #38 and #37


Here we have David Holmes and Nightmares on Wax.

At #38, Nightmares on Wax (George Evelyn) – previously here – and his classic smokers tune Les Nuits. NoW started on Warp records in the early 90s. I’d never taken much notice of NoW’s work before 1999’s Carboot Soul album, from wich this single is taken. It’s the opening track to the album and is a glorious swelling of strings and head-nodding beats.

David Holmes strolls in at #37 with his classic Gone. This was a track from his 1996 album This Film’s Crap Let’s Slash The Seats. It features the lovely Sarah Cracknell adding to the aching sadness of the song. I just melt at the line You Can Never Go Home Anymore.

And, here’s the Kruder & Dorfmeister remix
