a gritty 90s style album for those who grew up on illmatic, midnight marauders, only built for cuban links, moment of truth, and ready to die. behind the scale shows the other side of what some are glamorizing about street life and drug trade. this is unfiltered, real shit on tape. some of the stories are inensly personal and sean second-guessed including them, but if it aint raw it aint real. behind the scale is about change, transition and growing up.
the mini album hope was another change in sound, and featured arrangements by sean o hagan, then of the high llamas. featuring six songs including a cover of leonard cohens >winter lady<, oldhams voice is set in a reflective and soft-hued sound throughout.

more classic reggae from jamaica s most important label ever! following on from studio one rockers comes studio one soul which tracks the link between american funk and soul and jamaican reggae at the legendary studio one records. curtis mayfield, aretha franklin, otis redding, the temptations, king floyd, booker t and the mgs - all these artists had a huge influence on jamaican artists and this cd contains versions of songs by all of them. featuring classic and rare reggae funk and soul cuts from the reggae giants alongside rarer cuts, studio one soul spans over 20 years of classic reggae from the rocksteady funk through to the deep roots music. following on from studio one rockers, this second journey into the vaults of studio one tells the story of the important link between american funk and soul and jamaican reggae.
following up the scorching debut release another night, deep&disco recordings sidesteps the sophomore slump with elisco, an infectious electro-funk groover that both cements the labels commitment to quality and expands their musical range.
a chunky nu-disco track with hints of metro area and a catchy vocal hook, the seeds of elisco were planted in the early 2000s when label founder jkriv and lou teti were sharing a loft space in williamsburg, brooklyn. after an afternoon of cowbells and synths, the skeleton of the track had its shape, and their other roomates girlfriend was enlisted to sing the hook. she had no singing experience (or rhythmic sense) to speak of, but somehow it all worked and elisco was born! although its always been a personal favorite of the producer duo, the song remained shelved for almost 7 years until they dusted it off in early 2011 and readied it for release on the newly minted deep&disco recordings.
providing remixes for the vinyl release are the legendary leftside wobble, who turns in an extended and bpm-d-up version quite true to the original, taking the machine vibes to the next level with added loops and fx. brightons alphabet city brings the disco-boogie sensibility to the package with a deep mix that features jkriv on live bass, and whiskey disco regular sleazy mcqueen rounds it out with an indie dance stomper.

after the very well-received work >in g< borngräber & strüver have not been resting on their laurels but made >reise< (journey). they extended the concept of >21th century electro motoric kraut< on the new album >urlaub< and added their preference for disco music. like a friend of the label said: >reise sounds like a composition for the 20th birthday of carl craigs planet e<. borngräber & strüver have consistently worked on developing their minimalist compositions without taking into consideration conventions. the nearly 17-minute >reise< that starts extremely held back, grows into a groovy trip you can hardly escape. >berlin tribal music< has a radically minimalist approach and a surprising break like a portal to a parallel dimension. the last part of the album >dancing queen< has nothing to do with abba. the piece is a missing link between electronic h-pop and groovy club sounds.
this album contains the hindi veersions of the melodies of thge worlds number one pop group- abba. their melodies are magic and their reproduction in any language is a challenge which only the most talented and versatile singers and musicans can accept.
