the fantastic new single from okinawa delays feat. the delightful vocals of satoko ishimine is a cover version of the neil young/ nicolette larson classic. limited first edition twelve inch on light blue transparent vinyl & comes with fine selection of remixes from phil mison, psychmagik & willie graf & darren eboli. okinawa delays consists of the talented producer takeo toyama aka dj mizuki and the singer satoko ishimine. takeo met satoko almost five years ago when he hosted a party on irabu island that is a one of the distant islands of okinawa. we basically thought to make something like aor tracks like dusty springfield or fleetwood mac instead of city pop, also satoko likes that song, so we decided to go for it and im very pleased with the result.
2018 repress - black vinyl - more vinyl remixes from psychemagik with the long awaited official > dancehall days< remix sanctioned by jack hues from wang chung himself. jack liked psychemagiks re-edit of dance hall days so much he contacted the duo and offered them the parts for an official remix. the result is a monster dancefloor friendly beast that is true to the original edit but with some extra magik!... psychemagik stand out from the crowd with high production values and innate musicality. i usually find remixes tedious, but this takes you on some off-world journey – very cool. jack hues (wang chung)
those wizards of digging psychemagik doing the business once again. hot on the heels of last year s monstrous gotta hold on me / wildman they re letting folks know that they were still out there searching in the darkest recesses of the last 40+ years of popular and unpopular music, and boy oh boy are they good at it! the trip lives up to it s name. the track kicks off with some ultra beefed up psychedelic shenanigans, swirling, cacophonous sounds whirl and sweep and gradually drag us into the holographic tunnel, gradually giving way to some heavyweight drums and percussions and unfurling into a muscular psych-discoid beast. this one will send the kids crazy and will undoubtedly cause some damage in the club, both sonically and mentally. but what is the original? we hear you say... answers on a postcard please. sisters of the moon on the flip-side is a very different animal - all laid back, laconic steel-guitars and thundering slo-mo drums and percussion. the dark side of a rural witchcraft dream exposed here, almost menacing... and then? those vocals spring out of the mix amidst the throbbing sexually charged atmosphere and drag us back into the realm of near reality with sultry moans and groans. this one s woozy alright, but in the best possible way. so wrong, it s right and possibly the natural soundtrack to too many of those strange shots that that guy in the weird hat gave us earlier when we entered that country pub. what guy? i hear you ask.... ultimate freak-disco and deepest druid funk for the discerning and psychedelically inclined record consumer.

COSMIC MACHINE 2 EP (PSYCHEMAGIK, GOLDEN RULES REMIXES)
12" Vinyl D22.04.16
before the release of cosmic machine 2, here’s a new teaser of what is going to be another fantastic compilation. the french disco and proto-electro, still young and fresh is back with its groovy beats, punctuated by its timeless synthesizers ... a real treat for cosmic machine’s fans!
repress !! having wowed critics and crate-diggers alike with 2012s acclaimed magik cyrkles compilation, psychemagik are now ready to unleash the follow-up, magik sunrise. bristling with psychedelic, cosmic and curiously balearic oddities hand-picked from the depths of their vast record collections, magik sunrise is, if anything, even more inspired that its predecessor.
given that magik cyrkles was widely considered to be one of the best compilations of 2012, that is some feat. that collection garnered praise across the board, appearing in the end-of-year charts of rough trade, juno and piccadilly records. as if that wasnt enough, dj magazine also described it as f***ing great! for magik sunrise, the kent-based duo has dug even deeper into the dusty corners of their record vault, deep in the cosmic forest. the result is another inspired, 15-track collection that gleefully skips between all manner of forgotten gems and little-known nuggets, occasionally stopping to acclaim an otherwise unknown track or artist.
mink & shoes is a gooey drip of murky low slung slinky disco, falling somewhere in between smokey retro futurism and hazy desolation. it s a seductively squiggling romp through the outer reaches of the cosmos sky-crawlingly atmospheric, slow-motion dance floor abstraction for acid heads and space cadets. with navid izadis intoxicating vocals its quite something, and comes in three flavours: dub, radio and original.
psychemagik are back with the next edition of their hot midnight edits 12- with a double a sided monster release. side a kicks off with a super freaked out malaysian disco edit, hypnotic bass, weirdo vocals, arabic sounding strings and tweaked out synths! side b offers an ultra obscure guatemalan porno disco soundtrack, orgasmic vocals over a fuzzed out nasty beat, with trademark sexy artwork this whole release is rated xxx!
