following up drawn with shadow pens on spectrum spools, belgian sound artist yves de mey returns with bleak comfort , his third solo full-length. geared towards serving up an intense musical experience, the album deconstructs regular club music to highlight some of its key elements in a transformative way. an album about absence, malfunction and disorientation, bleak comfort is equally packed with floor-functional material and left-of-centre electronics. by turn sizzling and spherical, convulsive and atmospheric, yves de mey ushers his listener in a hypnotic kaleidoscope of sounds, providing a fascinating picture of his ever dynamic grammar at variable scales and tempos.
nachdem temporär die special edition des soundtracks erhältlich war (anderes coverartwork, pink gefärbtes vinyl), kehren invada nun mit dieser neuauflage zu dem ursprünglichen design des soundtracks zurück. sprich es ist auf dem cover wieder die rückenansicht von ray gosling in seiner silberfarbenen skorpion-jacke zu sehen. damit es nicht langweilig wird, ist das 140g schwere vinyl nun so gefärbt: frosted clear with multi-coloured splatter . das gatefold-cover rundet diese edition ab. -drive- gehört zu den populärsten scores der letzten jahre. die mischung aus elektronischer pop-musik (unter der leitung/produktion der chromatics) und dem elektronischem soundtrack (von cliff martinez, ex- red hot chilli peppers) geht wunderbar auf und verbindet sich treffsicher mit den suggestiven bildern des films.
danish composer the swan and the lake is at it again with his trademark widescreen soundscapes wrapped around eight new tracks of exquisite scandinavian balearica. with the release of his first album -moments- last year on copenhagenís music for dreams, we were introduced to a unique artistic vision. with one foot in the ambient chill out spectrum and the other in everything from classical avantgarde, idm and jazz, the music of emil svane breum under his alias the swan and the lake is both very accessible yet complex. on his new album -clouds- we see him expand on those same ideas and with seemingly simple means achieve extraordinary strong emotions. opening side a, the jazzy intro of -fresh food- leads us into a sublime piece of hazy ambient groover that could easily be mistaken for a lost 80s production from japan. -clouds over Østerbro- keeps things playfully cool and adds elements of scat singing and xylophones, layered over breumís shimmering bright chords. while the title suggests we are still on danish soil, this feels like a five minute vacation to a tropical paradise. guitarist johan liepstack makes a guest appearance on -summer in december- which comes off as an understated anthem that could break out into euphoria at any second, but manages to stay in a sombre state all the way through. on the track -plastic pacific ocean remake- we are visited once more by airy vangelis-like vocals which assume the role of a nurturing angel, guiding us to a comforting state of relaxation and healing, as breum lays down an overwhelmingly beautiful synth serenade with chords that hit you right at the core of your most vulnerable state. flip over for the mallorca inspired track -port d andratx- which comes in two versions - part 1 (sun) shines like a perfect escape into that cafe del mar/ hostal la torre sunset while the more deep and melancholic part 2 is aptly named rain. the gentle trickling of -waterfalls- sees breum mimic the eternal cycle of water, creating an organic and ethereal composition that stretches out seemingly without beginning or end. and finally on -heavenís voice- we see breum in his most epic and emotional mood, as he steers us through a slow explosive force of cinematic sounds. it all ends with a heartfelt spoken word contribution by guest vocalist neonbi.

chicago labels and the dawn of soul music
soul city chicago provides examples of the emergent uptown style that became indicative of so many soul recordings from what has become known as the classic era. uptown was descriptive of the sophistication of both arrangements and performances, with coarser, hard-edged recordings adapting into a more melodic and orchestrated sound without detracting from the intrinsic soul of the artists delivery. soul city chicago is the third instalment in fantastic voyages soul city series, compiled and annotated by soul music authority clive richardson.
