ORQUESTA (LP)
12" Vinyl UK 24.03.17
this release journeys to mid-80s argentina and the highly sought after 2nd solo album of carlos cutaia. inspired by the new electronic sounds emanating from europe. this multi instrumentalist offers more than a pastiche. embedding his own melancholy in a unique and classic nueva wave-album. classically trained. carlos cutaia started as a composer for dance and theatre. before spending much of the 1970s as a member of a number heavy rock. prog rock and rock-fusion bands of some note. before finally going solo with the city of distant tones album in 1983. however. by the time of his 2nd solo album in 1985. as his country finally left behind a long period of military control and enjoyed greater freedoms. carlos was fully immersed in the new electronic pop sounds imported with hungry ears from europe. teaming up with fellow composer. keyboardist and producer. daniel melero and alejandro oucinde. the futurism of kraftwerk and gary numan s tubeway army was embraced. but also adapted to fit their native land. just as it was understand a new modernity. starting with the swagger of visiones incomunicadas. the template is set. sharp drum machines. semi-nonchalant. half spoken vocals set the scene. while chopped guitar and smart synth lines fit the over riding feeling of an intelligent nonchalance. things however. do go beyond the straightjacket of euro-pop as heard on the anthemic programacion and avant twist of the first of two piano-ambient pieces aproximacion dos and its companion piece uno found on the b side). eric satie and minimalism are clearly not far away. however. it is side b opener sensacion melancolica that captures the sound to perfection. a balearic masterpiece. capturing in it s title the over-riding atmospheric of a unexplained sadness. a loss. operativo and the poem humanos de america bring things to an end of a feeling melancolica.

with just one 7inch release to their name in the form of the 1981 release. jive baby on a saturday night. the cult of the jellies was possibly accidentally assured with the long lost song being rediscovered by collectors and championed by sonic youth s thurston moore no less. picked up and reissued by the stellar trunk records in 2010. the b-side cut. however. was sadly overlooked. now emotional rescue are proud to license the conversation and remaster it especially for this rerelease. based around a simple drum and bass rhythm. interspersed with crowd noise. playful female vocal yelps and sprinkled with dub effects thrown in to the mix and you wouldn t probably think too much would be going for a track that the band put together in the last two hours of their studio time after jive baby had been completed. however. what you get is a killer gem of pop-punk-dub oddness that gets your head nodding to its infectious. repetitive rhythm laden with effects. with just this one (perfect) track available for license it seemed only right to hand it over to the in-house production team. apophenia. to do their increasingly trademark dubbed out reworking. this time in the form of a true. but respectful version for the flip. with both members of the jellies sadly now living overseas this piece of early 80s british dub as it were. can now be fully treasured for posterity while also. proving a nice little smokers delight.

emotional rescue finally gets around to reissuing some house music with the start of a 3x12 series from miamis dancefloor records. covering house and freestyle. this is music as worthy as any other explored to date. founded by british ex-pat jeffery collins in 1983. dancefloor records was the culmination of a music industry journeyman s long career from swinging sixties london to bohemian seventies nyc before relocating to the sunnier climbs of miami. taking in the city s unique mix of american. latin and caribbean sounds. dancefloors early success came via a long association with reggae turned disco star king sporty. while his legacy will be looked at in future. this series concentrates on dancefloor s shift to the growing club sounds emanating from chicago and nyc. first is the little is known eighth ray. as often the case. a project by a group of musician friends who went on to release under various pseudonyms. from the opening spoken word intro of axis of love. the spaced-out 4/4 and spiritual. pulsing arps. this could be mistaken for the then in-vogue italian house . with rimini in its sights. the vocals are the journey. underpinned by simple. up n back bass and mateo and matos style keys. pure 6am sunrise. backed with the deeper 8th ray. the ep eschews the bumpin house then coming from nyc and looks to the sound system vibes out across the atlantic. deep house before the term had grabbed hold. been twisted and contorted and donned head-to-toe in black. simply. real house music.

SPACE DISCO (10 INCH)
10" Vinyl UK 12.02.14
*it all started in 1974 with the purchase of my first mini moog and another 70s dream machine. a white mellotron m 400.* so starts klaus hoffmann of his 40 years love affair with the mellotron. moving from prog-rock guitarist to cosmic disco warrior in a space of a few years. the birth of cosmic hoffmann would lead to a number of classic kosmiche albums through-out the 1980s. before this though came space-disco. initially recorded in 1978 after endless late night sessions exploring the new realms of this free form electronic music. the first incarnation was recorded live to tape for a failed film project. an uplifting spaced-out synth journey. it was the later reworked version that would go on to become the lost cult classic. with added disco syncopation taking the track into interstellar spheres. it appeared only as a flipside of cosmic hoffmanns first and last single. *weltraumboogie*. in 1982. unfortunately the release did not make much impression at the time but has become highly sought-after for the more leftfield dj and music lovers in the years since. now fully licensed and remastered. the inclusion of the unreleased 1978 original will be only add to the collectors dream.

as emotional rescue continues to deliver the goods for those who love discofied rarities from the 70s and 80s. here comes this ep from kevin harrison. originally released in 1982 and worth a pretty penny second hand. it is a wistful. proggy kind of groove that finds harrisons voice lost in an alien phaser while the live band feel gels with synthesiser parts for a fluid kind of cosmic goodness. there is simply no arguing with the plush melodic wonderment of >views of the rhine<. while >fly< is the jam the party djs will reach for. not least for its slinky bassline. amazing.

INTERNATIONAL TIMES (LP)
12" Vinyl UK 24.07.12
arriving at their fourth release. emotional rescues knowledge of forgotten musical gems and their commitment to give them the chance of wider appreciation they fully deserve cannot be in question! after digging out that bob chance classic. the focus switches to something of an equally balearic nature with the release of jaki whitren & john cartwrights lost folk rock album international times. originally released as a private press on the obscure french label living records back in 1983. this eight track album is filled with dusty soul nuggets which are given extra life by the silky vocal stylings of whitren - formerly a backing singer for alan parson. opening track >stay cool< sounds quite ahead of its time. whilst there are some true dancefloor gems for the more adventurous djs out there. such as the title track and the laid back bump of >go with the flow<.
comes on heavyweight 180 gram vinyl.
