Welcome to Final Muzik newsletter! Yes, it is only our second formal newsletter due to some changes and to the fact we mainly worked through stalls and Discogs in the last few months. But, finally, here we are with a new “communiqué”; it is our intention to send our update/newsletter (at least) one or two times every month: a new Final Muzik LP has been just released and more will follow -> expect some surprising new albums and reissues from us, plus an always increasing number of items from other labels available from us through our mail order catalogue: CDs, LPs, 7”s, tapes…just check our Discogs link below.
Here we go…
FINAL MUZIK presents:
DEISON & UGGERI “In The Other House” LP (Final Muzik, Fmv 05) OUT NOW!
Final Muzik label presents a new limited edition release: it’s a collaboration work by our label’s backbone DEISON and Italian musician MATTEO UGGERI. It has been co-released with Old Bicycle Records and Oak editions + the artists (through their own labels Loud! and Grey Sparkle). “It was not born as a concept album, but as it was slowly becoming like the music inside it the sound work of Cristiano Deison and Matteo Uggeri ended up finding itself, step by step, enclosed between the narrow walls of an exceptional home. Arriving there from different places and positions, and never actually meeting, Friulian and Milan found themselves, perhaps in spite of themselves, together in uncomfortable rooms which were populated by dark invisible presences. It is not the scenario of a horror movie, there is no tragedy or fear, just the knowledge that somewhere else or the escape itself may be less reassuring than one has hoped. Therefore Francesca Mele’s photos, both a seal of the work and source of inspiration for the music seem to further cloak the place in that sense of quiet desperation that daily life often implies.”
Limited edition of 300 copies. You can order it through Final Muzik mail order on Discogs:www.discogs.com/seller/Final-

LISFRANK “Elevator” LP (Final Muzik, FLK100) New full length album by Italian electronic music artist Lisfrank. “When we were young”…but it seems yesterday when we bought Lisfrank’s seminal “Man Mask” 12” vinyl EP in 1982 and, few months later, the legendary “First Relation” compilation LP produced on Fulvio Guidarelli (Lisfrank) own label, Mask Productions. Then, for some reasons, Lisfrank disappeared, but for the fans remained one of the most important names in Italian new wave through the decades: his unique sound made of electronic synth music, new wave and dark atmospheres remained fresh, original and innovative even after 30 years.Since year 2005 something new happened into the independent music scene: a new interest in 80’s music started to rise, with new labels, many reissues of old gems and new artists. It seemed it was the right time for Lisfrank’s music: in year 2009 the mighty German label Anna Logue paid respect to the man releasing a discography LP+7” album, “Mask Rewind”, then rereleased on CD in 2012. Lisfrank became, again, a crucial name for the new wave and minimal synth community: Fulvio Guidarelli started to record new songs in 2008, working on them until 2012. The fabulous result is “Elevator”, Lisfrank’s comeback album after 32 years!
It is a must have for new wave, electronic and minimal synth fans, consisting of ten new songs with a warm variety of sound that is quite far from the classic standars of the minimal-synth trend: anthemic synth-wave tracks (“Resurrection”, “Anna O”, “War”), melancholic dark electro ‘ballads’ (“Those Nights”), thrilling instrumental pieces (“Elevator”) and much more, all recorded using analogue instruments from the 80’s.
“Elevator” has been released by Italian label Final Muzik on vinyl only, pressed on heavy red vinyl! You can listen to few songs from “Elevator” on Final Muzik Youtube streaming channel .https://www.youtube.com/
