JAZZ IN DETROIT / STRATA CONCERT GALLERY / 46 SELDEN (5X12 LP)
5x12" Vinyl D14.01.19
the radical discovery by amir abdullah of 5 two-track master tapes in the care of hermine brooks – widow of innovative detroit drummer roy brooks – of the charles mingus quintet recorded live in detroit at strata concert gallery is cause for some serious celebration. these electrifying recordings took place during mingus’ week-long residency in february 1973. they were broadcast live by drummer/producer and broadcaster robert “bud” spangler for wdet fm – a public radio station dedicated to jazz – from kenny and barbara cox’s multi-purpose home for strata records at 46 selden. entrance to the gig was $5 dollars in advance and $6 on the door.
very limited repress! continuing the unconventional romanian minimal trips that flow from guy from downstairs mind, the bouncy beats from gfd002 illustrate the well-crafted, intriguing rhythms that are set to grip the dancefloors. heavy, lush basslines coliding with sharp percussions and freaky vocals are the ingredients that make the signature sound of a brand new and captivating gfd tale. after the first release from the vinyl-only gfd series, played by artists such as daniel bell, tofu prod (a.k.a. melchior+tanaka), livio&roby or audiofly, the time has come to unveil the second chapter of an ongoing story. early support from the likes of tini, bill patrick and nu zau.
repress .... 26 years after its initial release, in the lab ep by language receives a reissue via few & far between, a new imprint out of bristol. founder of few & far between, sam hall, makes the 1992 deep house record the figurehead of his new label, setting the scene for the forthcoming original releases and further reissues in 2018 and beyond. remastered and pressed from the original dats dug out by language members alex swift and mark lewis, in the lab receives a crisp new lease of life with a fresh pressing. swift and lewis have been working closely with few & far between throughout the entire process, digging out the treasure trove of quarter-century old dats that were knocking around in their respective homes. shocked by the sudden interest of music they made 26 years ago, they have both enthusiastically jumped on board for this reissue. in the early 90s swift and lewis crafted in the lab from the deep house sounds coming out of nyc that they were picking up in bristol’s record stores. for kids coming up in 90s south west, the sounds of new york in 1992 formed unverifiable ideas about what club spaces would have looked and sounded like. in the lab is the culmination of these fantasies, embellished with some distinctive “uk” broken beat tropes that were also flowing through bristol’s music scene at the time (and still are). few & far between has made in the lab the blueprint for its first year of releases. as language sought to recreate the influential sounds from a far off place, so too do the signees of few & far between, making references to genres nearly three decades old, in an attempt to bring them into the contemporary. for its time, in the lab is up there with the best produced deep house records of its year and, like the best of them, made on machines by kids attempting to imitate but instead coming up with something that unique and singular.
drawing spaced out grooves. early support from vid, priku, herodot. vibes teleported from odessa, via bucharest and through berlin, tell their stories on the gfd record number 6. the a side, signed by guy from downstairs, unveils the crispy sounds of the cherry jays track in two similar versions, showcasing different flavours for your chosen time of day. same same but different! the flip side is fueled with warm minimal crunchiness delivered by the collab between none other than roche madame captain - c.s.r. (aka cesar merveille - you might know his music on cadenza, drumma, visionquest) and - body parts owner, olga korol. >bolshe< also comes with another twist through gfds trippy remix on b2.
debut release from guido, full name guido silvestri, member of the oltrarno recordings crew. after the appearance on the fourth label release as half of the ural project, here he goes on his own bringing this ep out of the berlin studio. from the edges of unknown lands, synthesizers landscapes unfold during the longest night. all life expectations are then distilled at dawn with the creation of a new body.
the space groove odyssey of the natural yogurt band continues in the black grooves of the milky way. after exploring the majestic neptune and its 13 moons, revealing one of the best-kept secrets of the cosmic-groove ascending jazz universe, natural yorgurt band continues its mission as david bowman and franck poole of clarke and kubrick, in 1968 simple coincidence or bad shot of the not so artificial and petty intelligence of carl900 the story does not say it (yet) but we can think that the sound of this new 45t of four intergalactic gates brings incredibly futuristic answers the mysterious origins of this music that lives in us! -everything will be fine- we slip from the depths of the galaxy before inviting us to wave on the moogulation of a dreamlike -punchbag-. everyone seeks his groove and tnyb leaves us free to choose our path, preferably milk, on a -this way or that way- beautiful to cry the stars. do not miss that they perform miracles ... has anyone ever heard of turning water into wine? wait ... oh my gods!

welcome to exotic robotics :)
9 months of gestation that ignites in 7 titles of contemplative pop, hovering funk, cosmic soul built all this: the jazz fusion of soft machine, the krautrock of the wizards of can, the irresistible languor of italian crooners (toto cutugno and lucio battisti in the lead) as the soundtracks, so sensual, composed by pino donnagio for brian de palma... but if antoine kogut makes this references his own, it is because he considers each of the titles of sphere of existence as «songs, not tracks». with his deep voice he has the ambition to tell us a story through them: his own, and that of the world in which we live with as a guiding idea that all phillip k. dicks predictions have come true today. which ones? youll have to look in the multiple circles assembled by antoine kogut to compose sphere of existence.
currently fizzing up summer crowds on his european tour, the argentinian renaissance man is testing his wares, as he prepares to unveil his third artist album at the turn of 2019. set for release on the martinez brothers perennial cuttin headz imprint, it will herald a fresh jacking chapter for the artist who famously refuses to sit still. an instant statement of intent, ‘so dope’, the first taster from the forthcoming long-player, lives up to its name with a thumping nyc swing, loose twanging slap-bass pops, trippy vox overlays, springy rhythmic elements and all essential conga rolls. with its concrete-thick groove, ‘so dope’ commands an equally robust remixer rollcall. which is exactly what the martinez brothers have recruited... the bossmen themselves get elbow deep with a warped and twisted bassline that snakes around the stately jacking beat, gradually becoming more warped and wonderful as the track progresses. djebali follows with a precision contrast as the vocal shots wrap themselves tightly around a timeless 909 beat and subtle tracks of venomous acid while heartthrob flips it into an all-out rolling techno experience. dope ain’t the word.
for their second installment, more human than human bene tleilax imprint choose a real, hidden talent from the endless submerged underworld. guenter raler is a young tleilaxu with a strong attitude for mutations and blending realities, where weightless grime and post-techno convive with a singular taste for contaminated ghost malwares and delicate non-binary trajectories. mobile energy is a journey into digitally-represented emotions, drowned into a shapeless reality. the ep is an overwhelming and transforming flux of music, a comfortable space filled by neon lights. the boundaries of guenter råler’s music are blurred: no predicted end, no repetition.
enzo siragusa rounds off another incredible summer with a highly anticipated project, a collaborative fuse ep with martin buttrich. striking a perfect balance between enzo’s uk rave roots and martin’s matured finesse, the ‘three squared’ ep nestles neatly within fuse’s distinct sonic palette.
‘you can’ stares directly into the haze and the strobes of the transformative night-out documented throughout gabe gurnsey’s debut lp, ‘physical’. undoubtedly one of the record’s most outright hedonistic moments, ‘you can’ finds gabe cheekily intoning an invitation to dance, get high, or both, assisted by a deeply trippy sonic atmosphere and a seductive, twilight bassline.
in the spirit of classic extended edits, the ‘extended dub’ version unpicks and expands on each of these elements, retaining the solid groove of the original while transforming it into a heady dancefloor tool. a staple of electro for the past two decades, the hacker meanwhile continues his recent hot streak with his remix of ‘you can’. firmly executed with his usual cyber-militancy, his simple but effective reimagining is littered with elasticated synth stabs, urgent oscillations and an audible desire to transform gurnsey himself into a man-machine.
masked, mythical, and bass! few words are needed when superlative entities collide. dengue dengue dengue are the peruvian duo known for raising a tropical storm. their electronic psychedelia and bass flows from their roots in lima, peru upstream to global dancefloors. the duo are constant in their evolution, exploring rhythms and sounds native to peru and from the world over. their focus is in recreating them in electronic form, mixing the old with the new
dokutoku four is here courtesy of guillaume & the coutu dumonts. the yuzo kosho do ep is a three tracker featuring a sound that’s always intriguing but equally difficult to define. all three tracks are intricately rhythmic and very much indicative of the montreal-based producer at his most emphatic
!!! 2018 repress !!! of nu guinea’s outstanding ‘world’ ep – the neapolitan duo is set to release new material on tartelet later in the year as part of the labels 10 th anniversary. the beautifully dislocated bougainvilles live lays out some warm analogue textures across a live percussion base, while the vocal edit of title track nu world ploughs a similar furrow to obscure 80’s afro-disco, with rich musical synth work over a pacey afro groove and undeniable jazz-funk flair. the flute mix passes over the vocal refrain from mix one and just gets down and wigs-out on those solos - an absolute killer! exotica dance club sounds like herbie visited the salsoul studios with his banks of analogue gear and jammed out into the small hours, as we head home on the beatless outro, all synth washes and lavish ear candy.
ltd repress - almost 2 years after the success of the album the tony allen experiments and a few months after the release of the 7inch amore, nu guinea return to the scene with a new lp published by their newborn label ng records. after touring the world looking for sounds suitable for their vibrations, nu guinea decided to go back to square one, napoli, where massimo di lena and lucio aquilina were born and raised. they watched their city from a distance reconstructing its energy from their studio in berlin, calibrating the synths on the meridian of vesuvius, the volcano that has always protected and threatened napoli. nuova napoli is the result of a long musical research that has become a historical investigation on the sound that shaped napoli during the 70s and 80s, starting from the contamination of genres (disco, jazz-funk, african rhythms) which ended up in nu guinea’s dna. in this album the synthesizers fill the spaces between the past and the future, tightening in a single body acoustic instruments, electronics and voices in neapolitan dialect. it is the first time that the duo has worked with such a large group of musicians, some of whom are exponents of the contemporary neapolitan scene. warning: we recommend listening to nuova napoli while walking in the alleys of napolis historic center, around wet clothes hanging and street vendors on tiny three-wheelers.
danny minchella aka rogue d to the family! his debut release comes on the ten inch series of housewax! -resampled- is a real house anthem and on top we have on the b side a fantastic minimono remix! highly recommanded!
rogue d is the new solo project from danny minchella. under this new moniker he delivers the eagerly awaited chains. set to be one of the biggest tracks of the year, its a high octane, club-ready number with abundant driving percussion. unstoppable force patrick topping is also back on home ground for the remix. chains was inspired by jamie 3:26s and cratebug’s edit of loretta holloway hit n quit - i wanted a simple, raw track, killer bassline and a soulful vocal. the process was very fast and i made the majority of the groove in one morning. i dug deep in my collection, looking for that special vocal and came across steve silk hurleys chain of fools (with aretha franklin on the original vocal), and it just made the record pop! - rogue d as an artist minchella has played some of the worlds most esteemed establishments and released on a wealth of high profile labels. he now aims to use his rogue d guise as a means to express his forward thinking and personal tastes in sound- from techno to old school garage to the sounds of detroit. he’s already released on dftd as well as providing a remix of soul claps misty on classic music company. in his relatively short career so far, label favourite patrick topping has made the cover of mixmag, won a coveted dj mag best of british award and made the resident advisor top 100 djs. hes released some of the biggest tracks on hot creations and is resident for jamie jones paradise at dc10. on his rework of chains, topping isolates the vocal and adds a tribal bounce to proceedings.

releasing an album into the world is a special moment for any artist but when you re an artist who grew up in remote northern ghana with no schooling, spending a life herding cows and goats, building your own instruments and teaching yourself to sing, then there s a particular sense of occasion and celebration in finding recognition and an audience for that music. this is the case for guy one, an utterly unique artist who is writing and performing frafra music, a style that originates from a small area in the north of ghana. whilst guy one is already loved and adored locally by now - building up a fervent following in local villages in which no funeral or wedding would take place without his soaring voice and deeply rhythmic playing, before then transforming into an award-winning, tv appearing artist in ghana - his music is now to find a much wider audience through max weissenfeldt s philophon label (jimi tenor, hailu mergia, alemayehu eshete) on this berlin meets bolgatanga release.
