Choosing a TBT album was an almost no brainer for me because it has been one that has been a part of my collection right from the day of its release in 1997 and that is BT’s ESCM.
“Flaming June” is possibly one of the greatest dance anthems ever, is the reason I got into dance music in the first place and it is the reason this album is extremely dear to my heart. This album is a spiritual and an emotional journey where each track speaks to you and identifies with you at some level. For me, ESCM helped me through an extremely traumatic time in my life and made me believe that there is hope and giving up is not an option. During my darkest hours, I listened to this album and it gave me strength and courage. Thanks to this album, I have come out of this dark phase and I am much happier now.
It may not take you on the same journey, but it is the composition and the technical prowess of this man that makes him such a legend. So I present my TBT choice for Decoded, BT – ESCM.
