If Vangelis has somehow heard this, he has to be stoked. Active Child's "Wilderness" owes him a huge debt, building layered, ghostly vocals on top of rippling synths and drums that sound like god dribbling a basketball on the floor of the Grand Canyon. How crazy is it that this comes from a cassette tape? It feels so much more futuristic, like it should be played via hologram somehow.
