bonnie & klein can often be found cruising round labels like music for dreams and leng. imparting tender touches of balearic finery for those who like to cruise on the slinkiest of 80s flavoured jams. they re on cracking form for this return to uber. kicking off with the sultry -tones of ballad-. which gets a subtle beefing up from drifts projects on the remix. -pretty lake- is the cut for those who want to achieve pure transcendental bliss by way of canned slap bass and sustained chords. and then -snowdrifts- finishes the ep off with a thoughtful piece shaped out by sweet piano and stirring strings.

distant images is d.k.s fourth release on antinote and we can say quite safely that dang khoa chau fueled a few identifiable obsessions over the years for those familiar with his work. it probably wont feel like uncharted territory when they’ll hear a somehow well-known guitar in the background of the title-track.

ntroducing mr. eff. part myth. part man. dragging by the arm to safety through digital swamps and haunted houses. the parallel stands as a singular vision of miltonian proportions. small vignettes and passing scenes give way to grandiose and beautiful moments. from the wave-sleaze of midnight predator to the pre-credits suicide-tribute of h e a r t t h r o b. the parallel works as much for drive time as it does for drifting off to a far off land that is both wonderful and strange. not to be ignored. art by eric. a lee.
this may look like just another lp. but in reality. it s a journey. i always made electronic music. but sometimes i wanted to get a musical point across that a synthesizer couldn t reach: the human touch. the perfection of imperfections. atonal experiments. the euphoria of the slightly out-of-tune fuzz guitar. so 7 years ago. my friend weytkin and me started a guitar combo to see what we could do with our collection of guitars and vintage equipment. the only machine i was 100% familiar with was the drummer: my trusty roland tr-808.- – ruud lekx (rude 66. jagdstaffel 66. lekx).

these songs were not born in the club. nor were they written by producers’ algorithms. so where did these hits come from? maybe from poolside changing rooms (aldona orł..owska is the polish champion in butterfly style swimming)? or maybe from opera singing lessons with professor olga olgina. the melodist born at the beginning of the 20th century in tsarist russia? she feels as good in performing on yachts as in beautiful churches. aldona marries the virtues of an opera singer and a disco star. she creates together with her husband. an outstanding instrumentalist and unconventional producer. they don’t care about trends. they go where the music is. for a quarter of a century they’ve been splitting their lives between malmö and mallorca. swedish piano houses and beaches. aldona orł..owska.

fashion flesh is the solo-output moniker of john talaga. based in bay city. usa. whose music first came to our attention back in 2016 with the release of an excellent 7-inch on detroit s est. 83 records. he should have been in the radiophonic workshop. but he was in the wrong place. wrong decade. instead. withdrawn comes as his first full-length album and makes up for the perfect introduction to talaga s synthesis of original and plasticized melodic collages. birthed from the guts of hand built exotic electronics and various audio devices — built from one s own design and heavily modified beyond audible recognition or return. from torn memories of pleasant dreams to plasticine free jazz sculptures. wavey electro cuts squealing like rubber tyres and pop hallucinations. fashion flesh highlights the beauty of confusion and anxiety throughout the breathing and illusive meanderings of his tape manipulations and hard copy cut-ups.

an-2 and samos have turned the clock back to finish off a couple of sessions theyd recorded together years back. maxim samos is our keen friend and sophisticated guitar player from minsk. belarus that we know for years. his first appearance on theomatic was back in 2008 with space-rock tune alpha storm. which received lots of positive feedback and found its way to the prins thomas live at robert johnson compilation. as well as guitars. maxim can play almost any string instrument and. on one of his erstwhile trips to istanbul. he dropped by a music store. picked up a saz and immediately set it alight. blowing away the entire staff. after scoring a big discount. he came out. clutching it in his hands. an-2 commented on samos playing on the saz during one of his first visits to minsk. and immediately suggested cutting a track together something that took 10 years. but the wait’s been worth it. what weve got is surreal halal-acid-folk-disco affair. perfect for whirling dervishes or dancing the dhikr. the storys continued on the b-side. where were treated to a tale of trips in a gti. before finishing with a nordic saga about cold fronts coming at us from behind the polar circle.
this record. and the full 2xlp that will follow it. are dedicated to and inspired by events in 2015 & 2016. which saw the spectre of global crisis come knocking at europes doorstep. during this time. more than a million migrants and refugees fled their homes in the middle east. northern africa. sub-saharan africa and other conflict ravaged areas in search of a better life. for many. hopes of a future for themselves and their families lay in continental europe. while the reasons for such displacement. on a scale unseen in almost a century. are many. so are the reasons for europe being seen as the ideal destination. the relative peace and calm of the continent and the prospect of building prosperous lives in western europe was enough to mobilize multitudes to embark on the treacherous journey to europe. one of the most well-trodden paths on this journey was the balkan route. a trail leading through turkey. greece. and the former yugoslavia. this route was not without its dangers. and the dreams of many were dashed by impassible security fences and discordant eu politics. as one by one they were turned away at borders. or worse. forcibly returned to their countries of origin.
europa is the first single that represents the seed of discontent. from which the 2xlp grew. it was recorded during long jam sessions in belgrade as the media spotlight started to dim. the city became the purgatorial destination for a large number of migrants. whose journeys had been cut short and this record reflects the atmosphere of disillusionment and uncertainty about the future. which descended on the serbian capital.
hell yeah is back with more beach ready and boat party styled summer tunes. this time from riccio. this italian producer has long been making essential edits. off kilter grooves and soul kissed house sounds that demand to be played loud and these new ones are no different. described by the label boss as balearic big beat. this ep kicks off with afro chemy. a scorching seven minute tune that builds on a bed of fat drums. the scattered percussion is loose and organic and when the funky bass and colourful xylophone sounds comes in you can t help but cut loose. add in a sexy trumpet line and you have the sound of summer distilled into seven sensational minutes. funky cave will get any party started with its old school drum breaks and cymbal splashes sounding like the ocean when you plunge in on a hot day. busted bass lines add a certain fatness and cosmic keys and steamy guitar licks make this another perfect outdoor anthem. last of all is the blissed out heather. one to drop at sundown after a long day s dancing. the beats are warm and lumpy. the synths smear out to the horizon like gently breaking waves and soulful leads really get your heart swelling. proper.

emotional response reach out to another fine selection of sonic voyagers to take brain machines excellent peaks lp to task. leading in with the warm discoid undulations of rollmottle who refigures to the stars as a gentle. groovy warm-up joint. die wilde jagd takes on mercury ripples and fashion a bombastic breaks jam out of it. and merrick adams pushes alpha moon into a curious but ultimately cosmic space somewhere beyond the titular lunar body. cass takes the prize with the bittersweet synth tones that course through the two-part remix of nexus vox.
coming to life on a hazy cloud of natural instrumentation and meditative composition. modern manners tap into the appetite for delicate new age musings beautifully on this debut release. amor y odio is laced with spanish guitar musings that spiral out over a simple but effective drum break that harks back to classic downtempo. while running with me edges towards a more sprightly lounge headspace while retaining the rich musicality felt on the first track. instant illusion is propelled by a bassline that wouldn t sound out of place on a house track. but here its punching out in a subtle. laid back environment that aims to get you horizontal in the most sophisticated way possible.

on this record ben sun presents an old style lp format - 40 minutes of moods and grooves interwoven with an intimate story. of individuals struggling to live freely in a time of oppression. after a sultry jazz opener where the characters are introduced. the lp kicks off with a sweet and slow soul track in work again. underpinned by a rotating acid bass. third comes salty tears. the underground disco floor-filler (original limited 12 version) finding a second home on vinyl. your camera and monday usher in some moody rhythms to complete the first side. sin casa opens the flip with some minor-blues improvisation that gives way to a spacious deep house jam. where the protagonists emerge again. still missing shows deeper shades of a eurobeat style - an emotionally compelling club tune that sounds somewhere on the italo side of 1980s manchester. the story comes to a conclusion with cowardice. and the casual jazz-house sounds of mamans lover. killer album!!

die klingt genau so. wie sie heißt: farbenprächtig. schwurbelig. episodenhaft und manchmal richtig schön beknackt. siriusmo nistet sich auch mit seinem dritten album wieder an seinem ganz eigenen plätzchen in der elektronischen musik ein. indem er alle möglichen stile und vorlieben durch seinen persönlichen filter schickt. notorisch tiefstapelt. maßlos übertreibt und immer auf dem punkt landet. siriusmo ist der vordenker. der gar keiner sein will. comic ist ein perfekt unperfektes selbstportrait und enthält in des meisters eigenen worten 14 bunte geschichten zum selbstausmalen. aber keine bange. diese geschichten erwachen von ganz allein zum leben. vergleiche sind überflüssig. nur einer drängt sich auf: sowohl melodische vintage-electro-romanzen wie dagoberta als auch fuchsteufelswilde arrangements wie bleat ziehen parallelen zu alten squarepusherplatten. statt jazz und jungle bestimmt bei moritz eben die berliner sozialisation den sound.
with his newest ep goa tee. moscoman finds himself seven releases deep into his 12 part treisar series. living up to its name. the seventh piece of the puzzle is the trippiest of the series yet. kicking off with some of my fears. a piece if outer space hypnosis carried by a rolling percussion and bass combo that will keep firmly stomping across dancefloors. reflecting the mood set on the a side. moments in space sees moscoman channel his italo flair while reaching out for a rave indebted sonic palette. final track chinchilla closes on delirious sounds and 8 bit melodies rubbing shoulders with a lovingly syncopated beat. a weapon all exotically inclined djs will be reaching out for a their next jungle party.

copenhagens music for dreams comes with yet another strong release - a double album of personal favourites compiled by jan schulte. according to all maps and witness accounts. germany does not officially have any tropical forests. this is of no concern to schulte however. who has unearthed many stunning examples of tropical drum music recorded there. perhaps the number of botanical gardens and palm houses in germany confused musicians into mistaking the climate. or maybe it was just a happy blend of escapism and multi-cultural integration within musical scenes that spawned such a curious output of undefinable tribal folk jazz. most of the tracks picked by schulte were released on small labels in the late 80 s. the musicians involved were mainly traditionally schooled. born and raised in germany. at that time to be interested in foreign folk music might have seemed a gimmick to some. what with the emerging -world music boom- already snowballing into the mainstream. but these songs. while they may be based on musical traditions from foreign lands. deal much more with introspection than exploitation. schulte himself points to his -general fascination for music that describes places where the artists have never been. songs about the jungle or the rainforest made by people that know the rainforest only from television and books. somehow i think you can hear their mythical imagination and fantasy in those tracks.- he explains....
nach ersten eps auf luckyme. der gründung seines astro nautico-labels und kollabos mit kelela und flatbush zombies. liefert der brooklyner produzent sam obey (obey city) sein debütalbum ab. das sich zwischen trip und peaktime-party bewegt und wie guter progressive jazz wirkt: elegant. smooth. cool. seriös. expansiv. experimentierfreudig. warm. dabei bewirkt obey als dj und leidenschaftlicher plattensammler. dass positive noise eine starke verankerung in pulsierenden. rhythmischen stilelementen des 1970 /1980 er disco & funk besitzt.
freshly dressed after a double helping of made to measure goodness. aficionado size up another summer time smash for the sandal-wearing masses. keen to capture the coastal cool of the wirral peninsula. the label crack out the crystals and summon strange-wave sorceress brenda ray for another hit of her interplanetary excellence. wandering from new age haze to celestial rays on this tripped out trio. our genre blending genius takes the fourth world into the fifth dimension of psychedelic sound. our spiritual journey begins with the chakra cleansing solartude . an out-of-body beauty which bathes us in swirling flute. dreamy chimes and shimmering tape delay before sending us off towards the orient. eastern tones and hushed vocals ride a glistening sequence as this flawless fusion of exotica and dub suggests a medicated martin denny stumbling out of chinatown and into a humid mangrove. next stop on the voyage of self discovery is space dustin . a lunar lullaby for lucid dreamers which sees brenda spin fairlight mallets. celestial keys and whispered vocals into an immersive ode to the outer rim. floating free of space and time. perhaps you too can glimpse the excellent birds. over on the flipside and the temperature begins to rise. skip. hop to bop sees brenda dabbling with dub techno. setting basic channel synths and stirring strings to a skittering rhythm. dislocated and disoriented we descend into a strange subterranean world of rothschild parties. lynchian noir and muffled techno. surrounded by swirling voices. shuffling percussion grabs hold of you and all that remains is to sway.

dirk gently s holistic detective agency would be jealous. private records managed to lift an amazing treasure again. this time in the basement of a jewish porn company... „desert lovers“ the unreleased minimal synth soundtrack of the eponymous porn movie from 1985. 1980’s movie soundtracks are the perfect source for unspent/fresh original vintage music. desert lovers from 1985 is the highlight of this year’s summer season. an unreleased minimal synth. ambient. drone. wave soundtrack that is in high demand already two weeks after the announcement. produced by the dudes also known as „schaltkreis wassermann“. a swiss cult psychedelic minimal synth band who were active during the early 1980’s. even lsd inventor albert hofmann visited them in their studio. comes with a foldout poster + vibrator.
stefan schwander aka harmonious thelonious is definitely not a newcomer. he has been around for a long time and has already released lots of amazingly varied music on labels such as emotional response. italic. meakusma and diskant. he’s also an integral part of the infamous duesseldorf / salon des amateurs axis that is an obvious hotbed of talent. he describes his style as -american minimalism vs. african drumming vs. european sequencing-. a heady mixture which is clearly evident on this ep though with a definite middle eastern twist. here at versatile hq we were introduced to this clutch of tracks by one of the members of acid arab and we were totally blown away. stefan has a very unique production style. fusing all of the above elements with a hint of gamelan. a dash of tweaked fm synthesis type sounds with a dose of warm ambience and finally his own singular touch on the mix. we are very happy to present you these 4 tracks to you. an essential ep from one of european music s true originals.

lovefingers heard the atmospherian years ago on milk beach settlers. a promo-only mix cd comprised solely of australian artists. mixed and released by seminal melbourne dj duo and good friends hey convict! (tamas jones & jason evans). tamas explained that warp factor 9 was a one-off project by john and russell kilby of esoteric post-rock bands the crystal set and bhagavad guitars respectively. and who are brothers of steve kilby (frontman of the church. a prolific australian band we’ve adored since adolescence). we had an immediate epiphany and this project was set into motion
the third and final part of the jacob f. desvarieux anthology on endless flight brings two more hot productions of the fabled french zouk veteran with roots in guadeloupe. the tune “rifyx” is taken from desvarieux’s 1985 album “oh madiana” and delivers arresting jazz-funk and zouk-suspense enlarged with touching horns. synth-enthusiasm and longing female vocals. the second song comes from the paris based. west cameroon born singer tala. produced by desvarieux for tala’s album “mother africa” in 1982. also here desvarieux tuned the synthesizers odd and edgy to let them dance with an afro styled rhythm. above all tala sings sexy with a chorus of girls while percussions go crazy and the sounds of horns are longing for the sky. on top of everything endless flight asked again the japanese producer kuniyuik to edit a desvarieux track. he chose “rifyx” and tuned it into an epic soulful eight minutes long dream house anthem that funks all dancers crazy. hotter than hot stuff here!
keope is the musical brainchild of toni bruna and marcus rossknecht. with the aim to record an album they ve met in an abandoned quarry on the slovenian border. the outcome tropicalni seems to exist in a vacuum. stylistically. all tracks here owe something to multiple genres and reference points - from folk. balearic. psychedelic and electronica. but none really fit well. synths drift in breezily. floating around the wistful melodies. acoustic guitars sparkle. while flutes & the beats hint at a deeper connection to dance rituals.
limited 12 inch vinyl edition of 250 only coming in a handmade and numbered artwork. each record is highly unique as it goes through an artisan process of hand-printing. folding. glueing and numbering which highlights the aim for creating unique and long-lasting pieces of art.
its just over a year since we started our new label. real balearic. for our second artist album we are really pleased (and honoured) to welcome one of the few djs who can claim to be one of the founders of the eclectic balearic sound. take a trip back to the 70s and 80s in northern italy and you will fine daniele baldelli mixing up electronic. african and slo-mo disco records to co-create the electronica meccanica sub genre. records often would be played at the wrong or variable speed to be made to fit into a wide aural tapestry of his unexpected-but-seamlessly-flowing dj sets. this of course is an aesthetic close to us here at real balearic. a sound we are ever so pleased to have as part of the mixing pot for our new balearic label. for the album he pairs up with fellow italian dj rocca to serve up an eclectic â€.“. electronic â€.“. balearic feast.
that cyberpunk chameleon of styles. manchester’s pride and dancefloor master ruf dug is back on wax on copenhagen’s music for dreams. following up the first 12” of remixes that came out last year. we once again re-visit the island life of monsieur ruffy and his debut full length album “island” (recorded during a sojourn on guadeloupe). first up we have italians on the mix. hi-jacking ruffy’s tribute to wally badarou. leo mas and fabrice opt to do their own thing: which is churning out a bouncing house belter of their own that bears little resemblance to the original lo-fi synth reverie. closer to the original then. is fellow mancunian andi hanley’s take on the same track. adding sparse percussion and and a simple but effective drum beat. this take seems to simply be an uncovered second half of the original. where it finally takes off for the dancefloor. “mangrove dub” is reworked by fresh-on-the-scene aussie producer tropical hi-fi who creates a brilliant version full of moist ambient textures and reverb-heavy dub treatments. at last but definitely not least. seahawks turns the whimsical hippie folk ballad “le rayon vert” into a more intense and neatly dressed affair. focusing on the instrumental parts and lifting aside vocalist nev cotte’s contribution to the original. still with a mindful of tropical dreams and the ocean shore close at hand. but in a more introvert vini reilly kind of way. essential package.
launching the sub label with this beautiful release. balearic sounds and downtempo chill music for this 7”. the new series is the perfect platform for different styles of good music. no boundaries here...
