the jamaican sonia pottinger was once called “the most important jamaican woman involved in music business”. dancing down orange street is a collection of some of her famous productions for different artists. the album captures the moment when rocksteady transformed into reggae by speeding up a little and moving towards a more jerky and less smooth musical palette. famous singers as delano stewart and ken boothe are present on the album with multiple tracks. the vocal trio the melodians (known for their hit “rivers of babylon”) provide a couple of beautifull songs. even after all those years (released for the first time in 1969) the compilation remains a treasure of showcasing some of the finest songs produced by sonia. sonia pottinger was married to music producer lyndon pottinger and started to record musicians in 1996. during the late 60’s she produced songs for joe white, the melodians and toots & the maytals.

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.

LETS DANCE RECORDS - MIKE MACHARELLO & DUANE THAMM JR - CHICAGO 1983-1985 (4XVINYL BOX SET)
4x12" Vinyl UKPre sale
jerome derradji+still music are proud to present lets dance records mike macharello & duane thamm jr. chicago 1983-85. the origin of house music, at least in a commercial sense, is generally associated with young african american producers from chicagos south side, but one of the first chicago house music labels was started by a young, white, gay dj from the far west suburbs. the lets dance story will take you back to the beginnings of mike macherello and duane thamm jr. when chicagos house music was in its infancy. back then, after starting as young roller disco dj in the late seventies, mike macherello gradually made its way to the best radio station in 1981 wbmx and started a movement that still ripples through the city today.
the young virtuoso producer prins emanuel follows up his acclaimed debut album on music for dreams with something quite different than what were used to hearing from him. while arbete & fritid was an epic odyssey into the furthest corners of disco with an array of studio wizardry and complex rhythms, diagonal musik is a sparse and delicate exploration of the acoustic guitar. steering away from his comfort zone, the prins follows his intuition for experimentation and lands somewhere in a field of genre-defiant folk-jazz meditations, a development that fits like hand in glove for the eccentric nature of music for dreams.
this album is a collaboration between labels kontra-musik and kess kill. what would have become of d.a.f. if they had been signed to trojan instead of mute back in the day add a good pinch of absurdism and social realism in the vein of prized film director roy andersson and vanligt folk might just be the answer. the gothenburg groups name can be translated to common people and they make use of primitive electronics, drums and skewed vocals - ranging from harsh social commentary to the purely nonsensical - to create their own take on body music. hambo is the name of a traditional swedish folk dance that was highly popular among the common people at the turn of the last century. with this album, vanligt folk juxtaposes the working class dance phenomena of hambo with modern day rave culture. this is done in the most blasphemous manner thinkable, as is the way of vanligt folk. concepts like nationalism, race and tradition are all treated with the same merry lack of reverence. the only thing that needs to be respected is the dance and those who take part in it, whether accompanied by accordions or drum machines. or both.
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.
nemoy and djemeia met at some sort of band/singer contest in zurich. he was in the jury no one knows why and djemeia ended up winning that thing. after that, nemoy just didnt stop bothering her with soulful, lo-fi house tracks, until eventually she gave up and recorded these magical vocals over some of his tracks. a perfect fit, right away. alexander lay-fars fantastic remix work takes that to a whole new level. buy this record
modern obscure music welcomes sam haar to the imprint for the first album released by an artist other than label founder pedro vian. the album is entitled euso. sam haar is a new jersey born producer and sound artist. influenced by both experimentalism and traditional dance music, haar’s music is something uniquely his own. he is best known as being one half of musical hardware loving duo blondes with zach steinman (neither of them are actually blonde). they famously favour machines over computers and provide hypnotic live shows. blondes have released the majority of their discography for rvng intl., before jumping to r&s in 2017 for the more danceable warmth album.
(2x12 inch gatefold lp+cd) kinobe scored one of the biggest chill-out club hits of the noughties, the deathless slip into something more comfortable. known from dancefloors, club backrooms, bars, radio spins, cafe del mar compilations and tv spots the world over - most famously the femme fatale kronenbourg beer advert - slip established the duo at the forefront of a scene that still includes groove armada, air, royksopp and zero 7.
the flamboyant and off-kilter title track from rones latest album, mirapolis is one of the last solo tracks that the producer composed in the spring of 2017: its one of the rare tracks on the album for which i thought about the live performance. while putting the final touches to it in the studio, i imagined myself at festivals via memories of previous tours. i wanted to record a festive track, which completely stands by its funfair vibe. with this new four-track ep (including three remixes), combined with a new video by aurélie castex, rone extends the carnival of electronic cultures of his latest musical citadel to the dancefloor – and our screens. johannes brecht, shadow craftsman of the hamburg label diyanamics studios, offers a refined reading throbbing with cerebral pulsations. appropriating the main theme in a subtle way, coated with multiple harmonic layers, his textures alternate white noise with organic basses that builds up to a delightfully classical cello outro. german-based figurehead of the south american scene, comeme label boss and founding member of the late closer music project, matias aguayo, has never ceased throughout his career to set off little revolutions on the planet of demanding dancefloors. playful and wild, aguayo sweeps in with a ritornello of chiptune sounds and orchestral arrangements, washing it over with a huge wave of analog synthesizers that destroys everything in its path. french techno scene boss laurent garnier embraces the original piece in all its meticulousness and its psychedelic lifeblood. a hypnotic and mischievous loop infiltrates itself without warning into the reptilian cells of the listeners brain.
back in 1995 while living on the west coast, at the peak of the rave experience, dj spun and dhyan moller recorded a bunch of live tracks, without any sequencer, all direct to cassettes. spun aka jason drummond, reached out last spring after rediscovering all the cassettes and asked us if wed be interested in releasing some of the tunes. jason shipped us the cassettes and after a good transferring session, we decided we had to release all the tracks under a 3lp set. this stuff is fire. we still love dj spun and dhyan moller!
long time scene stalwart darren price is stepping out on brand new label, kilsha music, with a fantastic ep of monster house tracks arriving. opener charm offensive is a fantastic ten-minute trip into loose limbed techno. drums, bass and percussion all wrap and weave around each other and melt your mind in the process. a rasping lead synth eventually becomes the focal point as background chords bring real soul. the brilliantly bristling everybody jack (uw live maschine mix) is a full fat track with busy textured synths, sci-fi effects and old school jack vocals that will really work the dance floor into a lather. its dynamic and ever evolving, with plenty of tense peaks and troughs throughout to keep the floor on its toes. the final vinyl track is this is house music, a deeper cut with warm, warbling bass and a muted acid line spraying about the mix. it slowly builds the pressure in heady fashion and is one to really hypnotise.
