3x cd UK14.02.12
limited edition 3cd box set comes with exclusive bonus junior vasquez voguing mix cd as well as set of unique collectible postcards by photographer chantal regnault. also comes in limited edition super loud two volumes of double vinyl (volume one of vinyl also contains free junior vasquez mix cd). the music on this 3cd/2 volumes of two volumes of 2xlp features tracks that were the soundtrack to voguing, the dance style that erupted in new york city between 19881995. voguing dancers choreographed poses from fashion magazines such as vogue. voguing first emerged around 1988 in the extraordinary house ball community of harlem, new york. here african-american and latino gay and transgender men competed against one another at drag balls for the realness of their drag, their ability to walk on a fashion runway like a model - and for their dancing skills out of which came voguing. as voguing entered into the mainstream, the house ball scene came downtown mixing with the fashion crowd of manhattan. with this shift, voguing was first seen outside the ball scene at legendary dance clubs such as larry levans paradise garage and junior vasquezs sound factory. here the music evolved from the pertinent classic disco tracks of the 1970s into a harder house sound as artists such as masters at work, armand van helden and junior vazquez. the album comes with extensive sleevenotes by tim lawrence, author of love saves the day: a history of american dance music culture, 1970-79 and hold on to your dreams: arthur russell and the downtown music scene, 1973-92.

2x cd UK27.01.12
from the golden beach of bali, goa and the balearics. this is beachclubbing,a heady, organic soundtrack of the very finest house music for a decidedly different clubbing experience. the alfresco party is nothing new. back when acid house was just a glint in the smiley faces eye, there was outdoor clubbing, a new and exciting expression of our primal urge to dance to a drum under the heavens. for centuries and even millennia, of course, tribal cultures around the world had been spinning wildly around fire, idol and one another without roof or shelter. in terms of pure, hedonistic, feel-good partying, there is nothing that quite compares to dancing with friends with the sun on your face and the sand between your toes. from the golden beaches of bali, goa or the balearics, this is beach clubbing, a heady, organic soundtrack of the very finest house music for a dedicatedly different outdoor clubbing experience.

ralph myerz is with no doubt one of the most active music personas of the norwegian music scene. it was the year of 1997 when ralph asked for people to play percussion with him during a party in bergen, norway. the jack herren band showed up through a combination of mutual contacts and high-school friendship. supposedly a one-time-event, they had so much fun playing together that they decided to form a band, and ralph myerz & the jack herren band was formed. the band released a 7inch and a 12inch on the telle records that were followed by great reviews from magazines and dj around europe, including dimitri from paris who included the track nikita on one of his playboy mansion compilations.

same same but different, the familiar phrase heard throughout south east asia, is a perfect description to characterize onras latest project, a follow up to his 2007 lp chinoiseries. so almost five years later, here we go back on the trail of another asian beat journey with 32 hip hop instrumentals inspired by chinese and vietnamese music. a lot has happened since then, not least the widespread acclaim for 2010 s boogie-tinged album long distance, while along the way he s revisited south east asia on a few occasions, adding to his asian record stack each time. the exotic, mysterious pop and folk chinese records of the 60s and 70s may not seem the easiest source material, with their epic operatic and orchestral feel, untouched by the western counter culture rumblings of the time, and alive with vintage vinyl hiss and crackle, but after hermetically sealing himself in his paris beat cave, onra has emerged with a more than worthy return for all the time and money spent in the vinyl basements and backrooms of the far east.
raise the curtain once more on a very special orchestral performance. how could highgrade records better celebrate its 100th release than with twelve tracks from the highgrade disharmonic orchestra? the creative combo featuring both label bosses tom clark and todd bodine, alongside philip bader, daniel dreier and dale, began over a year ago with the intention of celebrating the tenth birthday of the berlin label. and the resulting gift: a musical experiment. the five artists have bundled their creativity together into a symphony unparalleled in the techno scene. every performance is like a jam session: all five laptops are interconnected, so each of the artists has the opportunity to react to the others and modify each track as desired. thus, new arrangements are created and constantly re-interpreted. drum machines and synthesizers are also in play, to further stretch the improvisational possibilities. no wonder then, that the 100th release follows in this creative vein. the highgrade disharmonic orchestra, with multilayer, kiddnaps us away into vastly different musical worlds: from deep influences and custom recorded vocals to an array of technoid sounds and effects. then back to groovy, swinging beats reminiscent of a balmy summer evening on the beach. therefore the record is something of a rollercoaster ride, where we never know what might be waiting behind the next curve. typically highgrade
