auf dieser neuen ep liefert mule driver vier post-apokalyptische tribal-tracks mit einem dystopischen gefühl, das obskuren techno mit dunklen spirituellen rhythmen verbindet, getrieben von knackigen beats mit einem hauch von disco.
compilation of the nicest tracks by max, incl the original and 1992 version of tou t jou pa min and the beautiful tune on jou matin. for these tracks he got support by many top musicians involved in the zouk scene at the time, which resulted in super solid productions.
righteous expensive: motohiko hamase’s 1986 album “reminiscence” scores a decent prize at online vinyl selling platforms and it is worth each coin! it’s a perfect “refuge from nasty reality”, as the glorious british 20jazzfunkgreats blog once said. and it comes from a man that knows his trade: bass play - an artisan on which he also already wrote many theoretical books in his more than four decades long career.
the debut release of uk dj duo “secretsundaze” on mule musiq. james priestley&giles smith delivered two modern deep house versions and one melodic ambient version. it’s all-round for house music lover.

till today fumio itabashi is a vital part of the japanese jazz culture as a live performer and film score composer. those who want to see how he makes love with his piano should check the world wide web for the french documentary jazzed out, that captured his unique way of playing in one episode. but as music is always firstly for the ears, and not for the eyes, this little letter in-front of you would rather like to recommend to play the “watarase” recordings loud to get hooked by the highly infectious piano gems that have been recorded at nippon columbia 1st studio in tokyo on 12th and 13th of octo-ber 1981. they will haunt you. they will come for good. and they will force you to be a good friend with the repeat button – whatever medium you chose to surrender to the piano jazz music of fumio itabashi.
tired of reading the words ‘classic’, ‘masterpiece’, ‘missing link’, ‘cult’, ‘seminal’ in every press release? just trust us on this one: this is the real deal. we have no choice but to use those words and urge you to (re)discover one of the ultimate afro disco lost classics. if you’ve never heard it, thank god. if you’re one of the very few connoisseurs who have, get to experience it in a carefully remastered version.
we are very happy to announce call supers remix package for our main artist kuniyuki. we have been talking with call super to make the release for mule for a while…then we got an idea to make remix package with him. no need for talking bla bla bla….here are first class tunes.
the debut release of german deephouser youandme on mule musiq. title track with african diva black soda reminds me old king britt’s obafunke which is remixed recently. “unbound” on b1 is atmospheric deep house for a fan of lawrence or levon vincent.
currently the rediscovery of long forgotten japanese electronic, jazz and new age music is at a peak like never before. but although many re-issues already flood the record stores around the world: the large, diverse musical culture of japan still got some gems in store that are really missing.
it’s a 2nd release of studio mule’s new project with miyako koda aka dip in the pool.
following the cover version of ohnuki taeko’s carnaval, we made the new version of japanese new wave classic “shinzo no tibia by mariah” with a new lyrics in japanese (original is in armenian) which is written by miyako koda. yasuaki shimizu kindly gave us the permission to do this.
extended version on a side is full of the respect for the original version and dub version on b side is dark new wave dub version. kuniyuki said the idea of this version came from adrian sherwood’s remix for depeche mode.
ikue asazaki is a veteran japanese traditional music singer and yoisura bushi is a traditional music in amami oshima(small southern island). i think yoisura bushi is most emotional music which i have listened in my life. there are not the word to describe how beautiful…. kuniyuki remix is simply amazing,i think it’s his best work.
the debut release on mule musiq by italian dj&producer toto chiavetta. i have keep on checking his releases since his release “become one” on osunlade’s yoruba records, it’s still my fav track to play. toto has been releasing eclectic house music from mighty innervisions and yoruba records in the last few years. magnus ep start from floor killer tropical tech house track “higher than a bird”,it will be instant summer anthem. on b side,“magnus”&”first day without her” is more dark techno for big room but we still can hear some musical elements.
the first collaboration of kuniyuki and japanese legendary jazz pianist fumio itabashi, it’s originally released in 2009,recorded for kuniyuki’s third album “walking in the naked city”. kuniyuki and itabashi invited henrik schwarz as vocalist,maybe you remember henrik&kuniyuki’s house version. itabashi said river is one of the best song which i have produced.
finally available on vinyl!
