spring has finally landed and we have the perfect soundtrack for those long sunny afternoon in the park. we are glad to present explorer of the humankind for his first release with us. starting with stars in her eyes, a gentle track where the lyon newcomer use his voice as well as real drums for a smooth listening-experience. following in the same vein but a touch more upbeat is just a tool, a more playful funk-inspired piece. closing the a-side, share the love takes the tempo a bit higher and and shifts toward more club-friendly territories, houses goodness. turn that disc and get awake for i know, a disco-edit piece with trace of french heritage and filter action. lastly, deep inside takes us into a gentle profound dreamy state, moving more on the inside than with the feet.
are there any aliens out there? (probably!) what would they think of the human race? do the people in power really care about us? what would they think of mass corruption from corporate companies and governments?..... but hold on a minute, are we decent to our own partners, families, neighbours, people in need of the essentials and those we work with? do the police, authorities, prisons, care homes and detention centres look after the vulnerable in the correct way? yo aliens!!!!!! you are probably more advanced than us as a race so you ve probably worked out ways of stopping inequalty, slavery, famine, war and other general shite. if so, get your self down here right now and show us the way!!!!!!

ian simmonds is one of the most creative nu-jazz/downtempo producers of the last 20 years. although these words cant describe his music properly as the man is always looking for an innovative sound that could cross the boundaries of musical styles. the welsh-born found his inspiration in music from all over the world and his songs dont only express one clearly defined feeling. they are more of a subtle mix of emotions that let the listener interpret it his way. as ian said himself: *i think there is a lot of beauty in melancholy.*

everything begins with changes, whether you re moving geographically or emotionally. aera’s album „the sound path” tells the story of this sentiment.
born in the high north of germany and now a berlin resident, ralf schmidt aka aera first appeared on the electronic music map when he established his own aleph music label back in 2010. with only a handful of releases, aera was able to lay out his very own musically topography on the cutting edges between house, psychedelia and breakbeats. this colourful mix culminated on his debut album „offseason traveller” in 2013, resonating the past forty years of electronic music, which brought him the attention of a wider audience as well as fellow djs and producers. so it was a logical consequence that his talent also attracted other labels and lead to widely praised releases on innervisions, maeve or john talabot’s hivern discs. with these, aera’s sound bloomed further into bubbly acid and trancey territorries and his fine reputation as a singular producer, travelling dj and remixer flourished. with „the sound path” aera continues his musical travels and permanent vacation is gladly hitchhiking on that ride. his second album is the most coherent and definitely most personal work to date. here, he has perfected his sound even further - adding nuances from the meadows of new age, kraut cliffs and high-flying kites of ambient. complete with the cinematic and nature-esque qualities of ralf’s music, it will draw you in deeply through a great variety of landscapes before your inner eye. however, you’ll never lose track, because this path is beautifully illuminated.
brilliant comet of the italian new wave scene. real deal. tip! atelier du mal were formed in florence in 1983 by lapo pistelli (synths, electronic drums), iacopo ficai veltroni (bass, synth) and ignazio matteini (drum programming, percussions). recorded in 1984, noblesse oblige was the first and subsequently the only demo tape by the group, self-released using classic gear like korg ms-20, roland tr-606, roland tr-808, roland juno 60, roland tb-303.
the formula was simple: marry bubblegum and soul to the absolute sincerity of an enthusiastic child, cross your fingers and pray for airplay. but while the youthful sums of that formula may have grown up and walked away from their illusions of stardom, their permanent records remain. by 1973, michael, tito, jermaine, marlon and jackie were as hip as kids could get—household names, with lunchboxes, coloring books, a saturday morning cartoon, and an alpha-bits cereal commercial pushing the j5 brand onto any kid with television reception. their impressive run of four consecutive #1 singles playing on both pop and r&b stations cemented their appeal to both whites and blacks, prompting mgm to launch the osmonds as the safer (read: white) alternative. and parents? well michael had that wrapped up with his impossible-not-to-love mini-james brown thing. even their song selection straddled both sides, with “zip a dee do dah” and “abc” for kids, and contemporary standards “standing in the shadows of love” and “my cherie amour” for the older crowd. this extreme marketing and merchandising juggernaut created the kid soul explosion. a decade removed from our acclaimed home schooled compilation comes a fresh batch of talent show titans. with enterprising parents, neighbors, and teachers turning play dates into recording dates, groups like magical connection, little man and the inquires, and five ounces of soul emulated the jacksons, who’d made grade-school stardom appear easy as abc. afterschool special: the 123s of kid soul contains 19 tiny tunes ranging from bilingual d.a.r.e. anthem, to james brown bio, to young love and life beyond the playground.
greg belson s divine disco is a snapshot in time encapsulating the raw power of a spiritual performance, set to the pulsating 4/4 rhythms that were in vogue with the dance floors of the day. tip! labels like savoy played a key part in identifying artists that fit nicely into this brand new style with performers like shirley finney and the gospelaires, both of whom were established within the scene, but carried the disco torch brightly with their tunes featured here. divine disco also paints a picture of the lesser known acts that privately released their message to the hopeful masses, such as the gospel ambassadors and the inspirational souls, whose recording budgets would have been significantly less than any major label.
driving, rumbling techno beats and soulful vocals. all tracks stand in contrast though they don’t lose their relation to each other. positive vibes have the potential to develop into their complete opposite after re-listening. sounds fade through industrial ruins, always picked up again by vocal snippets. satanic choir meets berghain.
redredred from muenster (germany) is coming to tell a story with his debut ep. shifts between deep rough techno tracks, warm house tunes and ambient pieces like a master. still, other musical influences are present as well. significant here is his distinct sound design. constantly revealing new elements almost like a nightly walk through an empty city under a foggy blanket. this ep is more than a travel companion as it delivers tracks that are definitely suitable for a club.
stuntman mike is a guy with special taste for cars, women and especially music. in his car radio groove is allways present. here s a second part of what he prefers to hear when things get interesting. from motor city , a house legend like alton miller, gives us a gem with this detroit house sound. from the city of rising sun miruga makes an elegant, jazzy and groovy awesome track. and from spain two deep house masters. on the one hand jesus gonsev brings a tasty bass and juicy string. on the other hand ernie explores his dark side with this deep and dusk track. four great artists for this new soundtrack. mikes takes it out loud in his car. what are you waiting to do in yours? limited to 300 copies.
exklusive wiederveröffentlichung des jamaikanischen reggae-musikers mr spaulding (aka renford ferguson). das album *twelve tribe of israel* wurde ursprünglich 1983 veröffentlicht. die neuauflage dieses reggae-klassikers erscheint jetzt als vinyl-edition. zu den albumhighlights zählen wie *unseen eye*, *raiders posse* oder *my girl*. ein absolutes muss für alle reggae-, dancehall- und dub-fans!
while every rare groove dj/collector is familiar with the name don gardner, the average music buyer probably isnt. some of you may remember one particular song though: *i need your lovin* from 1962. performed by don gardner & dee dee ford, it climbed up to #4 on the billboard charts and even made the pop top twenty. but that aint all. what was about to follow might not have had enough penetration power to jump on the charts again, but every single song don gardner recorded in that decade had pure class.
the double vinyl lp comes in gatefold sleeve and includes a full album download code.
truth & soul praesentiert die instrumentalversion des letzten lee fields & the expressions albums faithful man. für die produktion waren jeff silverman und leon michels verantwortlich, die schon federführend bei aloe blaccs i need a dollar hit-single und dem album good things ihr koennen unter beweis stellten. leon michels ist auch als kopf der el michels affair und mitglied der bands bronx river parkway, menahan street band und the mighty imperials bekannt. er spielte auch auf diversen produktionen für daptone records instrumente ein.
bevor sie ihr zweites album >fettucini< verschraubten, sind die kings of dubrock, namentlich jacques palminger (studio braun), viktor marek (so ziemlich jede 2. hamburger band) und rica blunck (die zimmermänner), viel getourt, sie sollen sich blendend verstanden haben. sie haben auch viel enzensberger gelesen und sich gegenseitig vorgelesen, doch seine afrozentrik wurde ihnen zuviel. so hörten sie lieber musik: von king tubby zum beispiel. der jamaikaner prägte die urform der elektronischen bassmusik - den dub. er wurde erschossen. sie hörten auch adriano celentano. der italiener zeigte der welt, dass albernheit auch sonntags, vollkommen verkatert, genossen werden kann. er starb, irgendwie. und sie hörten den nigerianer fela kuti, der seine vision von gesellschaft auf die bühne brachte, mehr kinder zeugte als dschingis khan und dann ebenfalls zu grabe getragen wurde. doch all die toten werden nicht beklagt, ihnen wird gehuldigt. in einem outer-terrestrischen voodoo-zeremoniell, einem inferno der geilheit, das keine zweifel an der pathologischen unangepasstheit der beteiligten aufkommen lässt. dubrock hat sich dank >fettuccini< vom genre zum planeten entwickelt.
doppel 12 inch vinyl lp, inklusive cd-version des albums.
dekmantel proudly presents the return of vedomir to their imprint – with nothing less than a full length album this time!
mister karpenko was responsible for one of the most in demand dekmantel releases to date (picture of you ep), so this artist album is the next inevitable step. the ukraine-based producer shows he is getting more mature with every release, delivering a comprehensive artist album that crosses over genres easily.
ranging from downtempo, almost jazz-like slowburners to haunting chicago house with a true analog feel, and from dark electro stuff, to the beautiful ambient soundscape: this record is a piece of stunning musical versatility.
