joanne formans cave vaults of the moon created in 1987 for an exhibit of sculptures in taos, new mexico is a mesmerizing score for voice, ensoniq mirage, juno 106, flute, guitar and effects. the playful extra-terrestrial recording wafted through the exhibit every day for its duration and then lay dormant for nearly 30 years. unearthed now, cave vaults of the moon sounds prescient and timeless, as if pep llopis and iasos scored a wicker man remake set on mars. restored, remastered and cut using dmm.
after a quiet year jan hendez is back with new textures for this 4th output on lumbago’s imprint. this release, built around different construction and moods, welcomes 3 originals and a clever equation of those joints by the infamous professor le loup. welcome in the geeky cave! a1 is composed of strong, deep basslines that melts with beautiful synths and twisted rhythms that will bring you directly to space. a2 jan hendez achieve a really interesting mix of his influences with a track that we have difficulties to categorize, breakbeat oriented, also electro, but with his minimal touch. ravy and deep. b1 is the more housy oriented, a great tool for djs with a good drop of acid on the middle. b2, le loup used elements of the three originals to mastermind a clever track between minimal house, and electro.

wind river ist ein neuer spielfilm von taylor sheridan mit elizabeth olsen und jeremy renner in den hauptrollen. taylor sheridan hat zuvor das drehbuch zu dem film scicario von denis villeneuve verfasst. von ihm stammt auch der film hell or high water, bei dem er schon einmal mit nick cave & warren ellis zusammengearbeitet hat. nick cave und warren ellis interpretieren die natur-elemente (das rauschen des windes, die stille einer schneelandschaft) des filmes nach ihrem eigenen bekunden auf eine ganz eigene weise. für diese elementaren erfahrungen haben wir einen geisterhaften soundtrack produziert bei dem stimmen wispern, chöre aus dem nichts auftauchen und wieder verschwinden und der zumeist elektronisch produzierte sound zu pulsieren scheint, so warren ellis.
pressung auf audiophilem 180 gramm vinyl.
invisible starlight is a ripping tune by an unknown midwestern funk outfit with a driving backbeat and soaring horns. it sounds like ohio to us, but we can t be certain. however, we are sure that this band must have rocked local bowling alleys and lounges wherever they went. universal cave is proud to present our edit to our fellow 45 loving movers and groovers. on the flip, the beat broker rounds out the original with his signature style and an impeccable ear. the kind dub s sun drenched delay and reinforced drums ensure that invisible starlight will shine on any dancefloor.
alex tsiridis of cassegrain debuts on avian as rhyw. the extended ep, which represents the second outing for tsiridis under this moniker, sees the british producer pit a handful of elastic dance-floor workouts alongside a pair of more experimental, ambient reductions. despite careful processing rendering them decidedly monochrome, the dance-floor recordings maintain a curious colour and musicality. lead synth sequences drive much of the work, ducking in and out of the sonic backwater with considerable dynamism – almost hook-like in their execution, sharpened with ample distortion and melding with intricate drum work to create subtle shifts in tone and energy that propel the work forward. whilst reduced in it’s elements, like much of the best of the genre – the music sees those elements hard at work. tsiridis places atypical focus on groove, eschewing a more linear approach in favour of a kind of greyscale funk that finds its potency in the contrast between components. ‘iroquois’ and ‘aversion two’, the beatless compositions that appear on the ep isolate the ambient constituents of the work – with tonal nods to drone and noise musics whilst managing to hold on to the clandestine tunefulness that runs through the whole body of work.
uk producer martin jenkins needs no introduction. under his more commonly known aliases (pye corner audio, head technician, and more), he has mystified fans with his unique brand of synthesist nostalgia with numerous releases on ghost box, more than human, and further records. for this special 12-, martin revisits his past influences and crafts his first techno record. his fine-tuned programmer and production skills blind us with these 4 tracks of stomping dance floor killers. it s a totally new thing for martin and can be best described as straight up techno utilizing the pye corner audio sound palette. dive in and get lost. that 4th track!
eigentlich wollten nick cave & the bad seeds bereits vor gut drei jahren ein best-of-album veröffentlichten. aufgrund verschiedener dinge, persönlicher tragödien und ihres neuen albums wurde das release jedoch verschoben.

seems mc rayna is so busy these days with her band antiplastic that there s little time for for the sort of sterling guest vox that have graced beats by the likes of badboe, skeewiff, jiggyjoe, sammy senior, tonic, and tosses. luckily ale tosses of the latter has used all his wiles to get rayna on two new cuts. what to call the lp though? i know - tosses feat. rayna! doo wop is a vaguely electro-swingy bass-heavy number while joy is a gloriously chugging slab of guitar-powered breaks fuzz. of course it would be rude not to have a remix so who better than jayl funk to work his magic on doo wop and imbue it with a summery nu-funky party breaks vibe. the full package in vinyl, also includes a spread of stems including instros, vox and fx from the two original mixes. and you cant argue with that!
four floaty dubs & re-rubs from san francisco s ryan bishop aka the beat broker (bear funk, flexx, adult contemporary, etc). many heads probably best know ryan as the brains behind dream chimney, one of the longest-running and most consistently interesting online hangouts for like-minded music freaks. this 12- busts loose with -satin kimono,- a funky floor-filler with the most perfect aor song title in existence. -make it happen- cools the a-side down with a mellow yet uplifting soft rock groover, dubby voices beckon the listener to break free and never look back. -honey it s you- is a pumped up edit of an old chimney classic and was crafted specifically as a wedding gift for fellow dream chimney member hatchback - now available for the first time in a physical format! larceny dub soars to new heights of aor bliss, featuring an extensive re-working of a record that was passed along to ryan by an ex-deadhead neighbor.

duckcomb aka patrick billiard is one half of brooklyn s sharegroove. a longtime brooklyn dj and digger, duckcomb drops two edits from the far corners of the disco stratosphere. bonnevie is a hands-in-the-air dancefloorgroover with sexy female vocals, funky bongos, synth melodies, and a heartbreaking keyboard solo. every night hits us right where it hurts with soft rock for hard times written all over it. male lead and female backup vocals, night drive guitar solos, and a drummer with a heart of gold, every night is just begging to be sampled, like kurt hauenstein or jim capaldi hid a secret mega tune in some private press tax scam record, knowing patrick would eventually come along and take care of the rest.

norwegian dj/producer cave returns to shadowfax with more mind blowing sub-science. known from his tribal driven techno creations including the huge ingoma 008 and pumping work on his own spilo, cave now shows a very different side of his interests...

push the sky away ist das vielleicht außergewöhnlichste album der bad seeds. der longplayer strahlt natürlichkeit und waerme aus, ein werk von subtiler schoenheit. die songs haben über ein jahr hinweg gestalt angenommen in nick caves geliebtem notizbuch. das notizbuch ist ein analoges artefakt, doch das internet ist für nick cave ebenso essentiell.

nice price deal !!! the third, somewhat overdue, installment of andy blakes cave paintings series finally sees the light of day. all the cave paintings releases are one-take analogue excursions constructed by machines and recorded live in new cross gate and mastered for vinyl in hackney.3x is a close cousin of 2y.a simple but dramatically effective warmly buzzing bassline is clambered all over by layers of interlocking pure analogue percussion.machine funk meets the locking crew for a warehouse showdown.3y heads into thus far uncharted territory. an evil, growling lfo driven bass underpins militaristic percussion thats slammed hard into ancient spring reverbs and accompanied by the sound of synthesisers being choked to death. heads down strobe-lit dancefloor action.
about the record: no longer belgiums best-kept secret,francis is a high prolific beat-maker, baking his beat by the dozen,under an assortment of alliases:kingfisherg (on carte postale, leaving records and wigflip), sineshine (on plynt), as a member of bretzel zoo (on eat concrete), or here (or on surf kill or vlek) as cupp cave. his >garbage pail beats<,released on thin consolation in 2008, were a >rump-shaking, head-nodding, feet-shuffling slap in the face, one for the crate-diggers and glitch-lovers<.but that chip has sailed, and this is the long-awaited follow-up ep.once again:>think nice crunchy gravel<.

nice price deal !!! second in the all-analogue cave paintings series where raw machine funk workouts are very much the order of the day. >2x< takes up where 1y left off and adds a sinister backwards-sweeping synth line to turn heads to jelly while the limbs carry on jacking to the syncopated percussion and insistent one-note bassline. >2y< is all but completely enveloped by a warm, deep, resonating bassline which is so wall-to-wall that it leaves plenty of room for the intricate, interlocking percussion to create a body-hypnotic groove. cave paintings - letting the machines decide.
