CHANT AFRIQUE EP (INCL LELLO DI FRANCO AKA L.D.F. REMIX)
12" Vinyl D19.07.18
sensual and primitive. chante afrique ep is perfectly encloses the most acid house digressions and its deepest roots. a work that well combines past. present and future. all the genius of the legendary paul johnson in three original mixes and the -wild circus mix- of chante afrique track by lello di franco aka l.d.f.. an introspective and sophisticated remake. a must have!
opening track in the b kicks off proceedings in no uncertain fashion. it s 100% wall shaker material. the type of techno music best paired with strobe lights and towering speaker stacks. it mesmerises with its low-slung undulating bassline and detroit rhythms before giving way to some riotous old school essex stabs and sharp claps. no messing. this is a certified 3 am red light burner! track 2 chocolate biscuit accelerates proceedings! beginning with unfussy drums and a robotic. bleep-heavy melody driving it off into a wonderfully off-kilter direction. its arpreggio d rhythms may be brutish and wrestle a growling sense of menace out of the track. but the overall feel. however. suggests considerable care and attention has been paid to make it sound this way. there s clearly an uncommon musicality at play here to make something this complex feel so simple. the bpm drops next on jenny s hall but from the offset. there s enough funk and thrust in the motorised synth line to get bodies gently grooving without the beauty getting lost in the slower loop. this is blissed out. psychotropic techno - the kind of track where it feels like you re floating and falling at the same time. but all the while making sure you still remain fit for purpose on the dancefloor. ian blevins takes on remix duties this time and the berlin-based dj/producer offers up a sleek peak-time banger that fizzes. bubbles and percolates. he gives the rhythm on jenny s hall less space to swing and ties it to a tight motorik beat turning it into a slice of shiny. modern techno but with extra shoulder-checking force. its vibe drawing from a sense of outsider-party fun with a wry smile. and a knowing wink running throughout before bringing the package to a suitably left of field crescendo.
infusing tropical vibes and electronic grooves to reflect the vivid ever evolving latin american soundscape is the fresh musical excursion “electropical” as synthesised by london based producers. juan laya and jorge montiel. “electropical” - one word. one sound that distils a melting pot of authentic latin anthems. jazzy grooves. disco infused songs and balearic sounds all processed in hd for an immersive experience which explores the colourful influences of the caribbean. vast amazonian dimensions and beyond. its heart-warming journey is a highly seductive experience that further enhances the mood with repeated play.
finally we are pleased to announce our tenth ep. which is for us a milestone and not by chance we chose and.rea. who has delivered four tracks with his style and an acid footprint. we do not want to add anything else and let his music speak.

a dedicated digger and record collector first and foremost. earl has provided us with a quadruple set of heavyweight stuttery sci-fi boom bap. in earl’s words: “this record was mostly inspired by my penchant for the more electronic / synthesized jams. mostly replayed from the original compositions then thrust in to 2028 and beyond….”

ltd 2018 repress !! folamour comes here with a crossover 12-. exploring the whole spectrum of human emotion through his personal vision of a journey. the vinyl record starts with novalaise. sweet memory of the french country where the producer s from. the track builds itself up around a slow progression of a catchy acoustic piano loop. the listen goes on with la pierre et le sabre. in which folamour spreads his love for french 90 s house vibes. paying tribute to soul and gospel. two genres that mainly influence him. b-side starts with rue d amsterdam. an undeniably hip-hop influenced track on which folamour develops keyboards. bass and vocal samples around a rough beat. taking the listener away on an inescapable urban dream. the record ends with l Île des gauchers. bewitching song inspired by folamour s literary ravings (alexandre jardin in particular). the track progression can be compared as a book reading. rocked byan ubiquitous bassline. attending its voices until the last furrow.

summertime funtime courtesy of... someone from somewhere. who know? “liwando” is madchester rave culture with a disco underbelly and a bongo and conga fervor. jacques renault’s mix somehow manages to cram a few more sticks of dynamite into the mix. beefing up the funkiness quotient (that bass!) and embellishing the breakdowns (that horn!) “didn’t i (acid version)” is definitely the afterward to “liwando.” a joyous. soaring encore that has. yes. a touch of acid folded in.

no one confronts the abyss better than chris orrick. the michigan ex-factory worker formerly known as red pill has spent the last half-decade documenting industrial decay. familial pain. and struggles with addiction better than almost anyone inhabiting this poisoned soil. it’s somewhere between charles bukowski and michael moore. or maybe atmosphere if he couldn’t ignore the arsenic in the air. as orrick tells it. “portraits.” his latest album for mello music group is a return to form.
the songs. the words. the melodies in this album. they all matter to me because they represent the real time outworking of my own trauma. pain and discovery of joy and peace. but there is a life inside this record equally important to all of the above. which is also trying to be communicated. it’s almost like how listening to a song in a foreign language doesn’t hinder you from absorbing what the song is communicating. in listening closely as i expose myself to myself. that is where the art is. maybe every time we have the courage to unabashedly be true in ourselves. the courage to do the same is received by someone else.
i ask that you pray for me. so that i can continue to live on the surface. not only in private while making art. but also in public while living life visibly. also that as i continue on this journey with myself. that i can communicate who this old yet new person i have found is. a little better each time. with more clarity each time. - vicktor taiwò
