Bt escm 1997 full album

ESCM (Electric Sky Church Music) is the second studio album by artist BT, released in 1997. Following Ima, Transeau branched out to create club anthems such as "Flaming June", while also drawing inspiration from drum and bass as well as hip hop. ESCM also features Transeau adding live guitar, bass and drums to songs, as well as the use of a strings ensemble.


Like Ima, ESCM was also mixed to sound like one continuous mix. For US pressings, the loungy drum and bass track "The Road to Lostwithiel" was replaced with the more straightforward "Lullaby for Gaia". Both songs were later made available, in unmixed form, on the retrospect album, 10 Years in the Life. The US pressing also features an edited version of "Love, Peace, and Grease".

Amongst the tracks recorded during the sessions but left unreleased were the track "Lemon Balm and Chamomile", written with Che Malcolm, and "Flesh", written with Jan Johnston. The latter track would later be remixed for a single release by Johnston in 2001.
