fly by night music welcomes giorgio luceri back to it ranks for a cool dose of insightful analog house trax, this time deploying bu-mako recordings’ boss jenifa mayanja to share her dreamy vision of luceri’s ‘love is a storm’.
with an overwhelming passion for chicago // detroit and italo-house, mayo soulomon has long studied the genres’ analog roots and carefully created his own studio spaceship of synthesis. it is with this that he has produced for fly by night music three classic translations of these essential movements in dance music history, which we have backed up with an authentic remix from detroits own, rick wade.
with fbnm now celebrating their fifth year of operation, lorenzo has marked the occasion by assembling his biggest project to date – an impeccably curated collection of obscure italian production music circa 1974 - 1985. the project, nearly a year in the making, has been very close to lorenzo s heart – beginning unexpectedly in the record fairs of buenos aires and leading him on several trips to rome and milan, tracking down the original musicians and licensors.
the latest vinyl slice from fbnm sees us head to the depths of central africa via paris to track down a feast of rare seventies afro funky jams from cameroonian master musician eko. we ve brought fbnm favourite riccio along for the journey too, who has provided us with a fantastic rerub coaxing out some modern dancefloor sensibilities and production sparkle.
in 1979, the critically acclaimed artist ralph macdonald (who co-wrote just the two of us with bill withers) released his third lp via marlin records. though the reception for the album was mixed - most agreed on it s musical highlight, east dry river . 37 years later, and just in time for the arrival of summer, fly by night music s calypso weighs in with a fitting edit, respecting and captivating the original beauty of the track, making just a few subtle changes whilst revamping the percussion. someone pack the suncream, this party s going outside..
fly by night music heads deep under the cover of darkness with our first super limited white label edition, serving up a four tracker of sleazy jams and hot tub grooves. channeling soul, discofunk and old school house vibes straight from fbnm’s own boss lorenzo, white rabbit recordings head giovanni damico and label mainstays riccio and mayo soulomon, we have something for everyone if you are quick enough to grab a copy! 100 copies only, no digital, no repress, don’t sleep.
fbnm presents two killer cuts by finnish house and techno master jori hulkkonen and we’ve backed them up with a beefy dub mix from the genius international collaboration of balihu records head honcho daniel wang and j.e.e.p. aka jules etienne. pressing on green vinyl.
now hitting release number six, fly by night music serves up something slightly different from riccio (bosconi // super value), complete with a remix from craig smith (6th borough project), for its latest offering. this is an equally classy release but more of an obvious disco tip. coming in a press of 200 limited blue vinyl and a letter press sleeve, this is another boutique package from fbnm. the man behind the jungle way ep is italian riccardo zanaroli aka riccio, who most recently appeared on the widely lauded bosconi compilation bosconi stallions. a dj, collector, producer and record seller, riccio is a staple on the italian scene and brings plenty of louche disco funk to this release.
following on now from mayo soulomon, fbnm are proud to present our next release from another italian producer giorgio luceri. giorgio delivers two sumptuous house tracks here with completely opposite dispositions, the breezin balearic bliss of prophetic vibes versus the dark detroitian dissonance of woman. woman, with thudding drums and deep subs setting the picture right away. warbling synth begin to layer before the crescendo begins with fat analog stabs, rushing synth pads and airy groans. massive. detroitian. dancefloor. destroyer. lastly kai alce (ndatl muzik | atl) remixes of woman. simple but effective kzr delivers a retro house groove fitted out with lo-fi samples and old school sequenced mpc drum!
