with his upcoming two-part lp on malka tuti, cosmo brings forward his more diverse and somehow mature musical side, combining elements of post-punk, krautrock, electronica and pop on this first of 2 four-track records
in ancient lddlm times, blddlm even, belgium could well have been the freaky house and ecstasy center of the world. if only we could remember all the lost hours. but after all, as the brussel saying goes: its friday, tomorrow is tuesday. at lddlm, we try not to reminisce, that was just setting the mood.we are very happy to welcome arthur johnson in our non-fold, a young producer from liege via marseille and la dame noir. aj is amongst those ever mutating artists, his u-turns slowly composing a real personality, and one fitting our contrarian attitude. in a way perfect stranger reminds us of a good 90’s farley/heller remix, not so much camp fire island than almost sweaty late night trancer. we love those tracks that do not fit our ethos a priori but that we can’t stop playing. cosmo vitelli is a long time family friend and he beams up this stranger through the axis into some kind of romantic italo-german anthem. ballada and secretary discordia show a different side of aj, a dub march echoing dif juz and a percussive machine funk number. we sincerely hope aj keeps on straying for the best, his way being our way.
RED ATLANTIC EP ( AUTARKIC, COSMO VITELLI REMIXES)
12" Vinyl UK12.12.17
having made his debut on throne of blood as a contributor to moon rock volume 4, cass. returns to the label with a blissed out 12” that builds upon the low-slung atmospheres of his recent output on emotional response and international feel (in collaboration with jan schulte) to create a heady and modern sound influenced by both balearic and 80’s pop sonics without every losing sight of the dance.
im a cliches first release of 2016 comes from label boss cosmo vitelli. after a five year hiatus during which he was kept busy by his band bot ox and relocating from paris to berlin, this is the very first release to come out of his new studio located in berlins marzahn district.
cosmo vitelli, i’m a cliché’s founder and head, heard the voice of our unruly feet after taking us on a long car journey with botox. night dogs is his first solo ep in a long time. and he’s back to the dancefloor with an unexpectedly nervous pace.

super-hyped & long-awaited bomb !! matt edwards aka radio slave certainly excelled himself when he created his gnarly acid-drenched minimal-tech shoulder popper that first surfaced in late 06 on the no sleep ep (part 2). but now is time for the remixes. first up is josh wink, a man whose reputation goes before him. his >interpretation< is nothing short of colossal. cosmo vitelli delivers a corker on the b side along with the gnarly screamapella tool
talented parisian producer cosmo vitelli is now running his own imprint >im a cliche< !! his new single >delayer< takes a surprising minimal approach (also quiet village remix). already a big buzz amongst electro specialists
***bomb alert*** ok cosmo vitelli ‘s back, full on the electro techno vibe, cosmo hits these pages & the charts with a top notched electro sound full of personality, quite danceable at the same time.yep, this guy is really vitalised, delivering the perfect sounding of the moment, creating a real new universe, that will sure put the fire on the news electro scenes…yep, this is as good as this description
different is extremely proud to present you its upcoming new single >jus acid< from the french, london based producer abstraxion, including huge remixes by jacques renault, in flagranti and cosmo vitelli.
abstraxion is currently one of the most exciting up and coming producer. already garnering critical acclaim from his previous eps, including support from on erol alkan, simian mobile disco… he is also a gifted remixer and is in demand having remixed this year black strobe, hey today!, inflagranti and many others.
>jus acid< showcases abstraxion banging acid techno – building schizophonic basslines on his old analogs synths, ace dancefloor track: >this is just acid<.
velvet desert music vol. 1 introduces a new compilation series on kompakt, curated by one of cologne’s leading figures in electronic music, jörg burger (aka the modernist, the bionaut, burger/ink and many more).
nice price deal !!! runaway wraps up the year with a soulful chugger in the vein of lil louis or carl craig….a fully realized sound and atmosphere of where their direction is going. the fire below is house music built for big sound systems! on the flip we get a very impressive remix of their poltergeist track done by im a cliches label head cosmo vitelli. cosmo pushes the envelope a bit further to show the darkness that lurks between sounds, evoking memories of isolee and other fine playhouse moments
what would electronic music be without remixes? this is a question andrew claristidge had to answer last year after releasing his first solo album danser ou mourir. reworking the song of an other musician is a common thing nowadays. what is the purpose of it ? what if we would do the same in literature ? imagine asking philip roth to rewrite houellebecq... this is pure fantasy and this came to andrew s head.
an idea who’s time has clearly come, moon rock volume 1 struck a nerve upon release last spring. a collection of deeply atmospheric ambience, cosmic, and chillout techno, it was the opening salvo in a much longer-term effort by nyc-based throne of blood recordings to establish a platform for a diverse collection of friends and musical fellow travellers to explore composing music for folding time and exploring innerspace. now, just months after vol. 1 hit shelves, moon rock volume 2 is upon us…
botox present >basement love<, the first part of their second album >sans dormir<. two years after their previous lp >babylon by car<, cosmo vitelli and julien briffaz decided to unveil this new project through six different moments - call them eps - like six volumes forming a single story, each one being released every two months. the slow title-song >basement love< is released as a way of introduction, along three dancefloor remixes that lift this basement up in the air.
