italian-producer xxxv gold fingers, a.k.a. marco erroi, landing his release on rakale, the italian label running by dodi palese. owner of the common series project/label, marco has delivered 9 tracks recorded between 2003 and 2007 that we fell in love with at first listen. the fact that they were created more than 10 years ago confirms the futuristic vision of this talented artist that we have been following since his first steps. for this project we have also involved the italian illustrator pierpaolo gaballo who has been entrusted with the cover of this album, just to offer a good product for the ears but also for the eyes. get ready to travel in the marcos world, have a good listen!
what ever not is the variegated music outlet from experienced dodi palese and dan mela, italian djs and producers supporting, selling, playing and releasing instrumental and dance music for two decades. what ever not tenth record, ‘galegos bar / the ritual’, sees a split release signed by dan mela and marco erroi. label co-founder dan mela inaugurates a new moniker ‘man dela’ for ‘the ritual’ - the original track gets remixed by anton zap, with whom mela already collaborated for a digital release on his own ethereal sound. flipping on the other side, marco erroi, head of common series ltd, continues his production career with ‘xxxv gold fingers’ for the ‘galegos bar’ side – one of the many different aliases he personifies - also contributing by realizing the artwork. ‘galegos bar / the ritual’ offers two sides of the same coin and we can have both things with one stroke. the common denominator is the ethnical ritual. it is fully expressed in the man dela side with deep and hypnotic ride out turned upside down by anton zap with a dynamic electronic waltz. the same item, however, is magically hidden in the xxxv gold fingers side, where we can find it in the form of drink beer and play cards just like in most terrible bars in south of italy.
dan mela & dodi paleses what ever not reach release number 6 presenting here the super talented marco erroi aka goldfinger (also co-founder of common series). an ep going from the electronic deep influences of the m.t.s to the detroit raw sound of housemate.
the more dedicated amongst you may have noticed a very limited run of purple labelled 12s doing the rounds earlier this year bearing only the roman numeral for 1990, and comprising of two reworked club classics from the year in question well... this time we are looking back at 1987 hard to believe club music this sophisticated sprang forth from the most rudimentary equipment available it truly was a pioneering age - and its testimony to the enduring power of these raw, formative grooves that they can still easily carry a dancefloor four tracks then ranging from slamming chicago jams, to drug addled english basement music all respectfully rewired for a new generation

‘spes aeterna’ compiles seven sonic representations of the video art by diane drubay. five musicians coming from australia, united states and sweden collaborated with the french video artist to create a deep ambient and experimental drone compilation: zanias, halv drøm, kim boekbinder, dan söderqvist and bixu. the compilation is a right blend of psychoactives colors with textural, emotional and rhythmic soundscapes to expand the idea of sublime and create a strong natural cognitive enhancer. the compilation should be listened facing the video pieces to dive into an introspective state and reach high consciousness. this is the first installation of a trilogy.
this is land of dance, we’ve reached the tenth release and we want to celebrate it with an album, fifteen tracks and artists divided into four vinyls (two double pack) including music by: seldom seen aka santiago salazar, jared wilson, ricardo miranda, nightjars aka analogue cops, healing force project, boston 168, drvg cvltvre, xxxv gold finger, jann, passenger and dave hargadon (slowburn) plus some new names such as: andrea vietti, seven sins and müskije lycheeni. the tracklist has been thought as a dj set that evolves from ambient to jazz to house to techno. this is land of dance!
