its just over a year since we started our new label, real balearic. for our second artist album we are really pleased (and honoured) to welcome one of the few djs who can claim to be one of the founders of the eclectic balearic sound. take a trip back to the 70s and 80s in northern italy and you will fine daniele baldelli mixing up electronic, african and slo-mo disco records to co-create the electronica meccanica sub genre. records often would be played at the wrong or variable speed to be made to fit into a wide aural tapestry of his unexpected-but-seamlessly-flowing dj sets. this of course is an aesthetic close to us here at real balearic. a sound we are ever so pleased to have as part of the mixing pot for our new balearic label. for the album he pairs up with fellow italian dj rocca to serve up an eclectic â€,“, electronic â€,“, balearic feast.
für ihr viertes release auf compost präsentieren siren (darshan jesrani und dennis kane) den track lulu, ein eindringlicher und treibender song mit emotional geladenen vocals von devi mamboka. der song wird begleitet von eleganten gitarrenriffs von danny chavis von the veldt (sein zwillingsbruder daniel sang bereits auf sirens erster maxi), basslines von sirens sound engineer mark dann und percussion von liquid liquid frontmann salvatore principato. die italienischen disco- und cosmic-pioniere daniele baldelli und marco dionigi steuern eine sagenhaft groovende und zugleich zeitlose re-interpretation von -lulu- bei. siren sind darshan jesrani (metro area, startree) und dennis kane (disques sinthomme, ghost town). siren’s erste recording sessions fingen im winter 2013 an, aber die anfänge ihrer zusammenarbeit reichen zurück zu ihren gemeinsamen residencies im berühmten new yorker hot-spot apt und anderen parties, die sie organisierten. events mit namen wie camille 3000, adult section und strobe lodge wurden liebevoll gestaltet, mit gewagt romantischen grafiken und einem prägnanten spezifischen statement, dass kultiviertheit und sünde stets zusammen gehören können und immer sollten.
chapter 6: in taxon he intertwined saxophone, free voices, funk, jazzy and electronics. kevlar is headed by a strident and wandering guitar on a carpet of percussion. 33vs45 is a piece composed to be played at 33rpm but also lends itself to be proposed in 45rpm in daniele baldelli’s style, accustomed to propose records played at the wrong speed for unforeseen effects.
chapter 5: space music atmosphere in kata sandi, a fusion of italo disco electronics and moroder influences with a vocoder to interpret the melody. dioxide: an electro funk with psychotic and tribal influences. after a grand opening esaedro starts to fly in space in tangerinine dream atmosphere.
if you’re setting out on an epic voyage to the electronic disco universe, it pays to recruit an experienced pilot. when it comes to intergalactic musical fusion, few are quite as experienced as cosmic disco pioneer and noted dancefloor explorer daniele baldelli. produced alongside friend and regular studio partner dario piana, zero gravity cannily updates baldelli’s early ‘80s cosmic disco blueprint for the 21st century. we think that the ep contains some of his strongest music to date, with each of the three cuts offering subtle nods to the italian maestro’s original cosmic club ethos. a-side “infinity machine” expertly combines many of baldelli’s greatest musical inspirations into one mind-bending late night workout. underpinned by a druggy, arpeggio style bassline, the track rises and falls through waves of funk-rock guitars, crunchy clavinet lines and intertwined synthesizer solos. throw in jammed-out electric pianos, and you have a near perfect fusion of cosmic disco and blazed funk-rock. the producer’s long-held love of african rhythms surfaces on “if you drive”, where bold acid bass, ricocheting percussion hits and weightless chords combine beautifully with starry melody lines and vintage analogue synthesizer motifs. it’s afro-cosmic for the nu-disco generation. a fine ep is completed by “air lock”, in which baldelli and piana pepper a rubbery, electrofunk-influenced groove with cascading synthesizer melodies, swirling pads and a swathe of fuzzy, eyes-closed guitar solos. it’s bold and assertive, but also as otherworldly and stratospheric as you’d expect from a pioneer at the peak of his powers.
rothmans are back with their first release of 2016 and who better to bring in the new year than italian electropsycho s dj rocca & daniele baldelli. of course this record would have to pay homage to an italian great and who better than 1982 world cup hero marco tardelli. first up on the ep is a synth funk journey called kratos. rocca goes full on here and doesent hold back as he takes us on a journey of synth wizardry and classic italo beats. up next is an another original from rocca called fonk 400 another track that could have been plucked starigt out of the golden age of italo disco, again rocca is pulling no punches here. the ep is rounded off in spectacular fashion, just like marco tardellis famous world cup final celebration we have nothing short of genius with daniele badlellis electropsychomix of kratos. baldellie doing what he does best and taking us too another level yet again.
opilec music is back with this special va signed by the cosmic acclaimed italian disco stars daniele baldelli & marco dionigi. both are regular remixers at the label and close friends to gianluca i-robots pandullo. having never been released before on vinyl these tracks show their unique style, and their ability to be reworked into a modern sound. 1980 s gogogo by the swiss electronic pioneers schaltkreis wassermann is taken from the classic psychotron album produced by pj & stella (r.i.p) wassermann, which has recently been re-released by private records germany.
standard edition without the sleeve ... inspired by his time at the volcano extravaganza festival on the sicilian island of stromboli, daniele baldelli has created three new cosmic tracks. including an epic remix of 1970s. a founding father of the cosmic disco sound, italian dj daniele baldelli rose to prominence with his mixture of european electronica, synth pop (often played at slower speeds), equaliser effects, and ethnic folk music. baldelli’s use of african and brazilian material helps distinguish his style from italo disco, which permeated the clubs of northern italy during the 1970s. baldelli dj’d the night away at last years festival and releases the ep on the vinyl factory in time for the 2016 celebrations

LOST TRANSMISSIONS FROM THE OFF-WORLD TERRITORIES (2X12 INCH)
2x12" Vinyl UK27.08.18
that summer i developed somewhat of an obsession with tonto’s expanding head band after having seen them perform at the big chill festival that year. the music blew my mind. later upon my return to civilisation and the ensuing research which then began in earnest i became as much blown away by the enormous t.o.n.t.o. (the original new timbral orchestra) modular synthesizer that had created the music as i was by the music itself. built in the early 70s, it s still the largest synthesizer around today. with the live show still resonating in my head i tracked down everything tonto had ever recorded. one of these tracks was an obscure outtake from the time t.o.n.t.o.’s creators, malcolm cecil and robert margouleff, were producing and engineering for stevie wonder in the ‘70s(https://youtu.be/wuaszff7yq0). the track, bittersweet, only ever appeared on a highly limited self-released cd put together to coincide with their appearance at the big chill. consequently i featured it on a few mixes i did over the years and invariably i’d be asked “what’s that track?” by those with an ear for something unique. and invariably these same people, many of them djs, would turn away disgruntled when i informed them it was cd only. although i didn t know it at the time, the seed was definitely sown for this vinyl compilation that you now hold in your hands.

what happens when one of the most exciting electronic music projects of the last fifteen years meets the pioneer of cosmic disco? the result is stunning and with no doubt one of the most interesting things we have heard in a while. psycho radio was born in 2002 from an idea of the italian producer daniele tignino and sound engineer pat legato, with vocals from british singer leroy c anderson. they burst in the music scene with an innovative sound that took inspiration from the 80 s new wave, funk and electro grooves. tracks like in the undergroun and right stuff brought a breath of fresh air in those years, and they still sound very actual today. 2016 has seen the addition of producer da lukas to the project, with psycho radio now back with an explosive new single called bad reputation. once again with the captivating vocals by lc anderson. the legendary disco innovator daniele baldelli teams up once again with marco dionigi to bring us two stellar remixes that move from the funk infused vibe to their trademark cosmic balearic journey. an essential record for the final summer days.
continuing with a series that focusses on brilliant remixes of i-robots originals, opilec music now bring together two more italian legends of the scene in alexander robotnick and daniele baldelli & marco dionigi.
