red laser returns with four tracks from ste spandex. if you ve heard any ste spandex productions you ll know what to expect ! this ep is a fascinating collision of diverse dance music aesthetics & bristles with energy and passion. as usual all the tracks are live takes with various hardware working overtime from ste s orchestration. side 1 features two tracks with long time collaborator sarah bates. soaking wet is a peak time workout with tightly sprung drums, whirling effects & sarah s vocals weaved enticingly throughout the track. next is breakin my heart, an addictive bubbler melding house and boogie feelings with the vocals more centre stage. side 2 kicks off with gotta move, an 80 sesque grinder. pumped bass rubs up against squelched keys and peaky synth riffs, while nice weather closes things down, a short and sweet movement of shuffling drums and swerving synth action.

red laser seems to be attracting a wealth of young parisian talent as they release more heat from paris via red laser new comer romainn bezzina. bezzina has worked closely with bent producer simon mills to create and compile this ep of sultry analogue baleario disco especially for the manchester label. bezzina s remix of gary low s i want you has already appeared on the recent red laser disco compilation and now gets a re-press on this heavyweight twelve for increased sound quality. bezzina also drops fly away jack, a splendid shuffler reminiscent of van mccoy or bebu silvetti with a touch of love unlimited thrown in. these accompany 2 more tracks of sensual synth deepness including an exclusive vinyl release of bent s exercise 4 to make even the icy sleet of salford turn into the sweltering sun of st tropez.

there has been an emerging uk synth scene for a few years now, with vinyl labels like cyberdance, flight recorder and red laser pushing the sound onto vinyl pretty much alone in the uk. defiant against the odds, their resilience is now coming to fruition as it finally seems the scene is exploding inspiring new generations of synth disco lovers to create labels or parties based on the european output of the scene. an artist that has been associated with all said labels and has been riding the wave even when it was a mere ripple is kid machine.
the red laser records ep series continues to explore the realms of italo, acid house, new romantic and disco flavours. nick smith brings the early 90s house heat with in motion. this is a four four dancer that is built solid. minimal chunky house grooves for disco journeys. hot sporran is a producer that has been around a long time and may be better known as phoreski and richard gateaux. as hot sporran he gets to express deeper and darker realms. xplorer journeys to detroit techno with strong flavours of new romanticism making a unique and wonderful disco sound. leonxleon does what it say on the tin. if there is another track out there called acid disco i bet you 100 quid this smashes it up and stuffs it in a bin. this is an all out hands in the air, euphoric disco bomb. theme from ferranti is a fantastically moody slice of sensual italo in true starion style. finishing off another epic red laser ep series perfectly.

the mysterious lord of italo hooks up with il bosco on the latest hot 4 tracker from red laser. a simple and dark bassline with haunting lasers creates the bubbling imagery of a journey through manchester at night. where are we heading? to the fukin disco mate. how we getting there? in il bosco s 10 year old ford focus with the fat system g. why is the underside all crumpled? cos dj emerald beached it in tib street car park. windows down on a summers night? no, theyre broken. kid machine rocks the quickest shit i ever heard him make with this italo-electro-disco smasher. the title track to a film score that doesnt exist maybe ? this sci-fi thriller gives bass line collectors their monies worth and the beats are seriously heavy, but my favourite thing about this recording is the glittering euphoric interludes that appear twice in the track and make the whole composition complete. his strongest stuff yet. yes yes yes starion returns with another cosmic italo disco bubbler. its the soundtrack to a film set thousands of years in the future about a pimpin robot called night flanger. he makes sure all the fembots undercarriages are maintained and well lubricated when hes on a night out drinking diesel and smoking aluminium too hot to handle. too cold to hold. dirty girl is a boogie electro funk jam from il bosco. a chopped up rare as fuck record. can you find out what it is? probably. if you do and you know how to contact the artist let us know... do not miss!
