italoconnection. italo legend federico di bonaventura aka fred ventura with sound specialist paolo gozzetti. after years of collaborations, remixes and productions comes the first real album from this duo. following voyage, this hit squad are linking up with a spread of extraordinary talent for an album that explores a cityscape of variety. from the avenues of synth pop and plazas of space disco, the boulevards of italo to new wave skyscrapers: metropoli. the beautiful tones of francesca gastaldi feature prominently on this brand new album, tones which marry perfectly with addictive synthlines. of course, mr ventura is at the lp s core, an artist who continues to define italo disco with his unmistakable presence, style and voice. lyrical partnerships are pivotal across the eleven tracks. old friends and new have come together, meeting against a backdrop of radiant keys, clean-shaven beats and deep pads. alessandra contini of il genio, martin blix of italove and italo godfather francesco rago (of lectric workers, decadance, expansives, and wanexa fame) all lend their unique attitudes, experiences and voices for some incredibly special music. italoconnection s most daring and dynamic release to date, metropoli is the summary of all fred ventura and paolo gozzetti experiences. it is their electronic music manifesto, a manifesto with an european vision, a sound journey with an unknown destination. an album that will open vistas and visions of italo past, present and future, music of vintage class with a modern and cosmopolitan allure: metropoli.
the burrell connection is somewhat a resident with craigie knowes, he lived in the same flat in glasgow with label boss max when he started the label in 2015, he featured on the first release, he contributed to second fundraiser album, hes also played half of the parties at their glasgow home, la cheetah club, and travelled with the craigie knowes dj team to wow crowds around europe. but enough of the history, this is now - the burrell connections debut ep with the imprint, hyper/orbit. hyperactive techno and breaks blended together, emotive pads, 808 basslines and that ever-creative and homage-paying sampling ability that the burrell connections noble followers have come to love. its scotlands poster-boy at his finest. diversity is the key to longevity.
named after the tenor saxophone, actually, jimi tenor is not just jimi tenor - he s as well jimi keys, jimi flute, jimi vox and jimi composer. yeah, he is, as a multi-instrumentalist and music master in general, all of this! but wait: active since the mid-80 s he s also jimi legend. and if you overlook his whole oeuvre then finally you will find out that on top of all of this he s jimi genius.

the 2nd release from i walked by night comes firing out of the southside of glasgow. a young man by the name of the burrell connection has been flying under the radar for a few years now... a perth native / glasgow immigrant has been making music since he was 15, his first release came via west end communications (003) in 2015. since then he has released most recently with craigie knowes on the amazing 2nd annual war child fundraiser along with legowelt, shanti celeste, neville watson and many more. southside was made with a juno 6, yamaha dx21, roland tr8, korg minilogue and twisting samples and recording most tracks in one take with little post editing. this ep oozes raw energy and shows off a delicate deft touch. after debuting at the warehouse project in 2016, the burrell connection will be producing his first live show in 2017.

from the italian dub duo babe roots comes the groups third vinyl release since their debut 7inch last year on the sardinian rohs imprint which sold out in record time. like the a-sides artwork suggests (a photo of the major league baseball pitcher doc ellis famous for pitching a no-hitter while on lsd), this record will take the listener on a trip. in classic babe roots fashion, each song was carefully crafted using traditional jamaican dub techniques, blending 90’s chain reaction / basic channel atmospheres and uk trip-hop elements. spiritual connection / brown walls aims to be their strongest release yet. us-based label visceral vibrations teams up with big horn sound (a sound system out of las vegas, nv) to provide a record worthy of any dub-heads collection, presented on 12inch vinyl and professionally mastered by beau thomas at teneightseven.

third 2016 release from disco modernism, milan! italoconnection are back with a banging club track inspired by the trademark robotic disco sounds of the late seventies and early eighties, a full disco odissey of anthemic proportion and a spontaneus invitation to dance. the title is inspired by the great vibe surrounding bologna’s cassero club night -neon disco- where italoconnection played their first live gig in december 2014. the b side is an infectious and repetitive dancefloor stomp of more synthetic origins. the release is strictly limited to 300 12inch vinyls.

we are excited to finally announce and share presentiment the second long player from the connection machine. this release is particularly special for us as it will be the first time in over 20 years that jeroen and natasja have put an album out on vinyl. despite having a string of aliased releases in the 90s on the mighty u-trax, a 12inch during the early days of carl craigs planet e, a remarkable album painless on down low music, and most recently a series of in demand eps with lost trax on tabernacle, their output has remained tantalisingly infrequent. with 12 tracks that capture their unique and awe-inspiring sound, presentiment opens you up to a world that only the connection machine have access to

this album is another chapter in the ongoing there s-muchmore-to-brazil than-bossa-nova saga. it s filled with disco-eratracks produced for the brazilian domestic marketplace, some of which were hits, others which were quite obscure. what binds them all together - besides their common origins, time period and overall musical approach - is the fact that their reputation has been steadily transcending brazils borders. this has allowed these tunes to find their place on set lists, want lists and in the crates of the world s most discerning djs and tastemakers.

richard rogers black booby re-edits return with bb07, which sees chi-town original and ron hardy protégé gene hunt - a black booby veteran from bb04 - digging out more vintage dat dopeness on the double-a-side, which features raw-as-hell analogue house workout *1015* (a take on the dion & tony track from his chicago dance tracks collection on rush hour back in 2011) alongside the very aptly-named (and appropriately drum-fuelled) *dr roland*. meanwhile on the b-side you will hear uk house music og terry farley sharing production duties with another 90s house veteran, stuart stretch silvester. *play house* (original mix) is a synth-heavy jacking houser with serious dancefloor intent, plus check out the kklassik mix by another chi-town don, k alexi shelby, who chases the original headlong down a dark alley littered with emotive samples and thumping keys.
