next up on francis harriss newly-founded record label kingdoms comes something very special from brooklyn-based film composer, songwriter, producer and performer leah lazonick. movimenti della luna doro (movements of the moon of gold translated from italian) is a four-track ep from one of the most exciting musicians and performers around - a beautiful quartet of contemporary classical music with a twist. lazonick is something of a polymath, having composed and conducted orchestral and electronic scores for short films and commercials as well as being a classically-trained pianist. lazonick is also a connoisseur of analog synths and vintage drum machines, and will release a second ep focussing on these passions during the course of 2018. here we are treated to three luscious works for piano and string quartet, written for a one-off performance at studio off interarts, an art gallery in montreal. the piece was performed in a forest-like immersive environment, and was originally called in a forest (a piece in three movements). lazonick performed the piano parts along with a string quartet she had assembled for the performance/recording. lazonick explains: as opposed to most of the other songs/compositions i have written, i have no concrete sentimental story behind writing this piece. the motivation, inspiration and overall idea behind composing it was of a more technical nature, attempting to relay the music in my head at its purest form, without any compromises, by primarily making use of melodic and harmonic dissonances whilst still keeping the content captivating, musical and continuous.
heroes ist einer meiner absoluten all-time favorites und der song funktioniert auch auf deutsch richtig gut, sagt doro pesch und erzählt von ihrer persönlichen verbindung zum verstorbenen mega-star bowie: wir sind uns in den 90er jahren ziemlich regelmäßig im berühmten new yorker sir-studio begegnet, da wir beide dort oft geprobt oder songs aufgenommen haben. bowies gitarrist earl slick hat auch auf meinem 1995er album machine ii machine den song in freiheit stirbt mein herz gespielt.

ion din dorobanti is one of the many monikers of the ubiquitous producer ion dumitrescu from bucharest. his 7” single on pingipung shows the oriental influences on bass music in his hometown. this release carries the manele, romanias wedding music which dominates contemporary pop styles since 30 years, towards new sonic realms. on the two tracks, he drag psychedelia and analog electro into the manele-sphere. the first one presents a radical afro-electro rework of alex puș,,,,tiu’s “mi-e poftă,,,, de tine ră,,,,u”. ion din dorobanț,,,,i’s original production on the other side is a track pulsating on a 9/8 groove infested with synth nostalgia. all is spiced up by nicu chinezu’s on clarinet. ion dumitrescu is the co-initiator of the future nuggets label and its sub-label p-balans. they are both based in bucharest and run in heavy rotation at the pingipung office and in our dj sets. if he is not ion din dorobanț,,,,i he appears as australopitecus oltensis or utopus as a producer. among his productions are the brilliant debut lp by steaua de mare, the first lp of the legendary band rodion g.a together with strut records (london), the raze de soare ep and both volumes of -sounds of the unheard from romania-. these two summer anthems are part of the ongoing series of 7”-releases on pingipung. other singles recently came from ya tosiba, sven kacirek, andi otto or f.s. blummbastic.
wunderschönes neues album von sam genders aka diagrams in kooperation mit der 90(!)-jährigen poetin dorothy trogdon aus washington. auf der basis von folk-inspirierten songs setzen sich zwei generationen über wissenschaft und natur auseinander. die produzenten kristofer harris (smoke fairies, clock opera) und mike lindsay (tunng, speech debelle, low roar) geben den songs ihren warm-analogen bzw. leicht elektronischen touch.
by now future nuggets have surely been established as one of romanias leading exponents of leftfield electronic oddities, and they dont disappoint on the surprising delights of this new 7inch from renato din sala and ion din dorobanai. there s an eastern lilt to the vocals and melodies on both tracks, but they re framed by some wonderfully quirky synth parts and budget drum machines. nu e injoseala (n-am carti de credit) in particular capitalises on cranky monosynth squelch and organ wails, while i love you viata mea (lema) takes a more energetic approach and works some rhodes-like sounds into the mix.

at its core, organn is a record about love and duality. taking inspiration from isidore-lucien ducasse’s poem les chants de maldoror, the record is antagonistic yet often drops its temper to reveal blistered beauty within the chaos. such are the contradictory elements within the compositions themselves: widescreen claustrophobia, glimmering sludge, piercing vhs ambience. visuals come courtesy of french mixed-media artist, thomas hauser. hauser’s imagery similarly evokes retrograde surrealism and further insists on a narrative at work here, with obscured characters playing out alongside mantric piano, filmic vox and hyperspeed jungle.
a collection of long out of print recordings by artists from tanzania (biashara jazz band), democratic republic of congo (baba ilunga wa ilunga, orch. bana ekanga and orch. moja one band) and western kenya (victoria chomeka and international de nelly) recorded in nairobi between 1976 and 1996.

no wahala sounds take great pleasure in bringing you this second volume of lost gems from east africa.
any system contained in our universe tends to reach a stable equilibrium state. in the invisible world of sounds, it’s about harmony. the 4th release on liniar is more like an electronic alchemy where wobbly baselines wearing traces of detroit dna bring order to the apparently chaotic showdown of experimental bits & pieces. leading every single sound to balance.

“naked & warm” is his fifth studio album and is even funkier than his debut. “here withers returns to the simple ways of his past, working five or six musicians for the kind of hard groove that doesn’t have many parallels in black music these days”, says music journalist robert christgau.
musicians include larry fatback tolbert on drums, dorothy ashby (harp), melvin dunlap (bass) benorce blackmon (guitar) and jerry knight (bass).
naked & warm is laid back and smooth, a classic withers album.

r&s presents a killer ep from romania’s ada kaleh aka iulian cuculea, which follows his stunning alejandro jodorowsky inspired debut lp -dene descris- on his vinyl only imprint ada kaleh românia. like many of the second wave of romanian minimal producers, iulian s music combines propulsive hypnotic rhythms with rich, organic sounds that envelop the listener in an otherworldly atmosphere. -the creation process is a moment of temporary madness for me” iulian explains, -i enjoy working with layers of sounds that intertwine and embrace like a lotus flower. folding and unfolding.” finding fans in the form of countrymen like raresh, petre inspirescu, rhadoo, barac, cezar, priku and internationals like ricardo villalobos, sonja moonear, tini, prins thomas, he’s also dropped critically acclaimed releases and/or remixes for uvar, the rabbit hole, third wave black, supernature as well as his own ada kaleh românia imprint. opener -palatul de cleş,,,,,tar- (translated -the glass palace-, received a vinyl only release on his own label in 2014) sets the tone with a mesmeric rhythm track overlaid with a haunting clarinet part and spaced out synth gurgles that combine to enthralling effect. apollo records alumnus laurine frost supplies a trippy, blown out version that blackens the tone of the original into a work of quiet menace. on the flip -devotare- (translated -devotion-, also a vinyl only release on his own label in 2013) strikes a more strident tone, the grooves strut rather than purr - gauzy chord stabs weave between the beats and clunking percussion in a delicate yet complex interplay of elements.
