This month’s Patreon-supported bonus commentary podcast takes a trip to the frontier of 1996! Forma Tadre’s debut, “Navigator”, has remained a touchstone for the Senior Staff in terms of sound design, theme, and so much more. Bruce and Alex have loads to say about Lovecraft, Tangerine Dream, and Blade Runner samples, so join them on a journey through sea and space as the ins and outs of this impressionist electro-industrial masterpiece.

On a side note, volume 2 of the “Tyranny off the Beat” contains a version of Looking Glass Men (Original Mix) and another edit of FLA’s “Barcode,” just like that We Came To Dance comp. Were those songs contractually obligated to appear together in the mid-90s?
