INFO > Musically active for 40 years now, French producer Marc Cerrone was an incredibly influential artist during the height of the disco era and beyond. Released as a single in 1977, “Supernature” is the title track from Cerrone’s third album and perhaps his best known composition. Remixed several times over the years, the track was reworked by Kevin Saunderson, Danny Tenaglia, Jon Of The Pleased Wimmin, and Rachel Auburn between 1994 and 1996.

Written by an uncredited Lene Lovich, the song’s lyrics construct a cautionary tale of the dangers resultant from applying chemicals to agriculture. These “potions” consequently mutate animals, who then exert their new-found power to dominate mankind—in effect, nature exacts revenge upon irresponsible humans.

Regarded as science fiction in the 70s, the song’s message is chillingly relevant today—excessive use of pesticides and artificial fertilizers, growth of genetically modified crops and animals, and unchecked factory farming collectively contribute to environmental pollution, destruction of ecosystems, wildlife deaths, and compromised human health. And unlike the fitting fate for humanity posed in “Supernature”, nature has no defense against greed-driven corporations with no respect for the planet.

INFO > Given recent posts over at Within A Constant Groove about legendary Belgian label R & S Records, I thought I’d bust out this classic by Marcos Salon. Founded in 1989 by Renaat Vandepapeliere and Sabine Maes, R & S defined proper techno in the early 1990s with groundbreaking material from Aphex Twin, CJ Bolland, Dave Angel, Model 500, Jam & Spoon, Ken Ishii, and Joey Beltram. A massive rave-era hit upon its original release in 1991, “The Vamp” was remixed and reissued in 1997; among the knob twiddlers is Kevin Saunderson—an appropriate choice given that “The Vamp” utilizes elements of Reese & Santonio’s “The Sound.”
