Bassomatic - Set the Controls For the Heart of the Bass - 1990
Bassomatic is a trendy dance-pop project of his that allowed him to experiment with the Electronic/Techno music that was popular at the time, without directly tying it to his Strange Cargo brand. The music is all traditional WO sound, but throw in some beats and an urban vocal track, and you've got it.
The album is pretty good, not as good as his Strange Cargo, or his Modern Style albums, or even as good as some of his mixes. But, even WO's marginal stuff is better than most electronic artists out there.
I redesigned the cover, making it a little more modern and a little less dated. But, it may be a little too up-to-date for some of you, so I made a cover using the original graphics as well. Only one b-side, but plenty of mixes. Not all the mixes are here, but, I put the ones on that matter.
