Some xxclusives from the Clone distribution house:

Various Artists - Uncanny Valley 01 Various Artists Uncanny Valley 01 Uncanny Valley 001 12inch € 7.99 buy
Jakob Korn, Break Sl,Thomas Frohlich, Cuthead on the first release of this ambitious new label from Dresden. With its foundations firmly rooted in house and open to all styles such as techno, disco and dubstep. Its a small community of friends and producers, dj’s that meet each other the old fashioned way, the local record store Fat Fenders. The first release is a true house-affair. Thomas Fröhlich’s ‘Get US’ is a mysterious and breathtaking opener with beautifully plucked strings and a summerish feel. Jacob Korn with the surprise track on this record that combines intricate soundscapes built on an uplifting groove. This guy is on a roll! On the B-Side breaks-prankster Cuthead unleashes an unusual deep house study entitled ‘Unacceptable Moustache Styles’ before the record concludes gracefully with Break SL’s late night jam ‘Low Light’. we’ve said it before… the next generation has arrived! Recommended.

Dorisburg - Sinai Hypnosis Dorisburg Sinai Hypnosis Aniara recordings 002 12inch € 7.99 buy
The 2nd release on the new Aniara label! This is one of the deepest, most intense tracks we’ve heard in a while! Sinai Hypnosis is a lush and relaxed tracks that slowly builds and builds and just don’t push things as so many of the modern house records… this is a fresh evening breeze slowly turning into a invisible silent tornado sucking you up and dropping you on cloud 9! This is probably the closest we’ve heard anything come to Global Communications without copying their sound. The title track comes as extended and dub version. Flip side brings Mima… another kind of ballad with a dubstep/two step beat and a soothing voice, leading you gently into new territories. Recommended! (remember Aniara 001 sold out in 1 week.. and so far never got repressed despite the demand! Don’t sleep)

Various Artists - Voyeurhythm ep3 Various Artists Voyeurhythm ep3 Voyeurhythm 003 12inch € 7.99 buy
Part 3 in the Voyeurhythm series! Retro futuristic house tracks by Ben Sun and Monte Carlo Interchange. Ben delivers a great track that builds around a sweet Frankie Knuckles kind of bassline and sexy NY proto house percussion, topped with lush piano and vocal samples 1992 rippin old disco records style. HEAVY HITTER!!!. Flip side is a spaced out slomo cosmic house jam with a big bass line which goes between a classic 90’s C.Craig and a late 80’s Chicago house bassline… sweeet! Another cool release from these kind Australian folks!

Skyscaper - Skyshapes Skyscaper Skyshapes Ghost Sounds 008 12inch € 7.99 buy
Hi-quality minimal dub/ambient techno by Skyscaper & Ekelon. Comes on the likeable Ghost Sounds label (that always seem to be pressing less as what the demand is unfortunately… hence the zero stock on back catalogue). But lush long tracks with a foggy ambient piece on side a, and a more bright rhythmic dubby piece on the flip with beautiful strings and lush melodies. Sweeet!!

Jason Fine - Colors ep Jason Fine Colors ep Kontra Musik 015 12inch € 7.99 buy
Detroit artist Jason Fine is back with a follow up to his critically acclaimed Future Thought album. The master of the introspective and personal techno sound gives us another killer release, once again transforming daily life experience into beautiful and moving deep techno and house. Jason Fine continues to play around with layered melodies and harmony mixed with raw and funky drum programming. The EP opens with the track Orange, a beautiful monotone organ based techno track, revealing hard times. Violet continues in the same vein. Blue melodies play around over minor organ chords and heavy kick drum. On the inner tracks Blue and Red Jason with confidence moves into the electro territory, still keeping emotion and atmosphere up front. Even though the concept behind this EP is the full color spectrum, the mood is all over blue.

Mark du Mosch - Bareknuckle Mark du Mosch Bareknuckle SD 18 12inch € 7.99 buy
SD Records returns, all guns blazing, with a fourtrack smasher by Mark du Mosch and it’s a small miracle these tracks are here. Noticed the scrambled spaghetti in the artwork? That’s the original recording tape, right before some serious hours of restauration. ”It was nerve-wracking, but I managed to untie the knot.” But was it worth all the effort? Hell yeah! Mark du Mosch delivers a classic EP with four very different, but ultimately essential tracks. Titletrack Bareknuckle has ”anthem” written all over it. Warm, but pumping techno with a hint of disco and a hook that is simply killing. With the raw, dark technoelectro sound of Monolulu and Mice vs Cat Mark du Mosch dives into dusty, pounding cellar soundsystems. Machine Lives takes it in true SD style to an unexpected experimental electronica level. Classic.

Brassica - New Jam City Brassica New Jam City Nocturnes 01 12inch € 8.99 buy
Immaculate expansive night music. Written and recorded between Hungry Ghost’s studios in West London and a remote Kent shed the attention to gear on both tracks is really rather special. The view is from above, the lights… are they on? There is life underground: These shall not last long.

Sumerian Fleet - Sumerian Fleet Sumerian Fleet Sumerian Fleet Clone West Coast Series 04 EP € 8.99 buy
The West coast series continues… after the huge Hasbeens release its Sumerian Fleet with a amazing 5 track ep full of big dark wave inspired tracks. The perfect sound track for a movie such as Irreversible. Scary, haunting and dirty! Do we hear some influences of The Cure? Liaisons Dangereuses? Adult.? Front 242?, John Fox?. By far the most inspiring electro release we’ve have heard in a while with its crazy industrial drive and dirty machine funk and robotic synths. Btw check out that last track Blech Erkrankung… That track alone is worth buying this record! Big.

A small selection of our new Imports! (more coming in everyday!!)

Beppe Loda Presents Mc1 - Counter (bottin rmx) Beppe Loda Presents Mc1 Counter (bottin rmx) Nang 033 12inch € 8.99 buy
Over the last few years, Beppe’s name has walked out of the history books and back into nightclubs and record collections. Here Beppe collaborates with MC1 to turn in ”Counter”. The original and the adeptly named ”Electro Monster” version features here from the deft Beppe / MC1 pairing; big riffs, big synths and big drama all the way. Providing some remix action is the new mysterious act ”Radome” (yes it’s an alias but no we can’t tell you who it is). His mix adds a lazy acid slow-mo groove, analog burn and more than enough oscillators for your money. Also on remix duty is a Latin combo consisting of the most Italian of producers, Bottin, and new Mexican apprentices, Avanti. Their mix brings the track bang into 2010 with the robust and sparkling, synthesizer, dancefloor version.

Blakula - Permanent Midnight Blakula Permanent Midnight Bear funk lp013 LP € 16.99 buy
Blakula is a black vampire born in Haiti, hibernated in Transylvania and defrosted in New York City. It’s 1977. After living for too long among the humans Blakula starts to enjoy life to the full, even its darkest aspects. Gradually Blakula becomes more human than normal people and starts behaving and ”feeling” like them. So Blakula posed for Robert Mapplethorpe’s camera, wrote poems with William Burroughs, shared spray cans and brushes with Jean Michel Basquiat, jammed with Miles Davis and the Velvet Underground, starred in David Lynch’s movies, danced at Studio 54 with Andy Warhol, dated Vanessa Del Rio and Joe Dallesandro, got addicted to heavy drugs and alcohol, experimented any possible erotic fantasy, partied hard, tasted the bright lights, learned the language of pimps and derelicts, lived in baroque palaces and shooting galleries, became more human than human then got crushed by the city sickness. The Blakula soundtrack was created at an undetermined period in time by Simon Maccari and Andrea Bellentani (also known as The Diaphanoids). The music is both unique and at the same time ”classic”. Musical touchstones range from funk, seventies disco, psychedelia, avant-garde, no-wave vibe, cinematic atmospheric sounds, nightclub sleazy jazz to slow-mo bluesy grooves. Every track on the album has been played by real musicians, orchestral ensembles and choirs. At Bearfunk we often step foot outside the boundaries of the normal and decry fiscal sanity. Blakula is one such step; a miniature suburban gothic funk/voodoo disco/slasher-thriller-giallo movie, soundtrack opera. Welcome Blakula’s ”Permanent Midnight”, an album that is a bitter and desperate ride through the alienated landscapes of a city’s darkness.

All this is manipulated and perfectly orchestrated into six wonderful compositions in which moments of melancholy, isolation, coldness, and contemplation of life will take the listener’s soul on a journey throughout those beautiful and desolate places eternalized in the cover photo by Bjarne Riesto, with great thanks to the huge design-work by Keep Adding studio.
