a new week… and the first new releases start to come in… with a nice versatile selection… so here a little update!

For the latest downloads check on Clone Digital:

First some attention for a couple of Clone repressings for titles that has been out of stock for a while!

The Other People Place ft. Mystic Tribe a.i. - Sunday Night Live at The Laptop Cafe The Other People Place ft. Mystic Tribe a.i. Sunday Night Live at The Laptop Cafe Clone# 27 12inch € 7.99 buy
One of the two The Other People Place releases (the Warp full length and this 12). Drexciyan involvement in this classic release is obvious. One of the deepest and intense tracks with such a warm positive vibe. Flipside contains a track by Mystic Tribe. (not very mystical of course for those who know the history of Detroit techno. Unique track from a unique project… and there are not many projects with Tribe in its name. Their release on Retroactive is one Detroit techno collector items). One of those records that get you through the day. Classic!!!

Mike Dunn presents MDIII - Face The Nation Mike Dunn presents MDIII Face The Nation Clone Classic Cuts / C#CC001 12inch € 7.99 buy
Originally released on Underground Records from Chicago. 4 tracks of vocal acid house. Can you imagine what happened when we heard these tracks for the first time 20 years ago? We couldn’t stop jumping around. This was completely from another world… Acid was music from another planet and Mike Dunn was an Alien who came with irresistible beats and basslines. Mike Dunn and Tyree Cooper also wrote the lyrics which are still relevant for everybody who has some hassle with relationships now and then. This is all about the basics of good innovative music. Essential!

Mike Dunn - So Let It Be House Mike Dunn So Let It Be House Clone Classic Cuts / C#CC007 12inch € 7.99 buy
Another Clone Classic Cuts re-issue of super obscure Mike Dunn tracks! Three brilliant acid house tracks; ‘So Let It Be House’, ‘Grooving’ and ‘Life Goes On’. Three master pieces which have been out of print since their year of release (1988!). 19 years after their initial release date on Westbrook records we are happy to have this almost forgotten piece of House music history available again. Must have!

V/A - Clone Classic Cuts V/A Clone Classic Cuts Clone Classic Cuts / C#CC012 12inch € 7.99 buy
Four tracks taken from the Clone Classic Cuts album, showcasing the more disco/electro side of the album. Featuring Oppenheimer Analysis, Fockewulf 190, Jackson Jones & Trophy.

Mental Overdrive - My House EP Mental Overdrive My House EP Love OD Communications 1001 12inch € 8.99 buy
Based on an old sketch for a track that was lost for 20 years and then suddenly resurfaced on an old DAT tape when he moved his studio, latest offering from Per Martinsen AKA Mental Overdrive takes us into a universe where big pianos and bright sunshine is the order of the day. To make things even more summery and relaxed he teamed up with fellow Norwegian disco connoisseur Rune Lindbaek for a joint remix, and while in the studio they had a swift visit from chanteuse Anneli Drecker – recently known for her position as front vocalist for Röyksopp – who added her soothing voice to the mix to transport you even further into balearic bliss. Finally this release also introduces the bright new talent of Boska, delivering his more uptempo remix duties to complete this essential package to kick off the summer season.

Jocke & Elliot - Regenbagen Jocke & Elliot Regenbagen Kust Musik 005 12inch € 8.99 buy

Anthony Collins - Under Your Spell EP Anthony Collins Under Your Spell EP Horizontal 12 12inch € 8.99 buy
Horizontal is proud to offer a robustly breezy release from accomplished French producer, Anthony Collins. Grooves that are intricate yet fluid, sounds both tech and organic, and mood-embracing funk are the signatures we have come to expect from the Frenchman. Lush modern electronic house tracks that go further then the stripped down effective dancefloor tools. Check!

Apiento & Co  - She Walks (Pete herbert remix) Apiento & Co She Walks (Pete herbert remix) Leng 004 12inch € 7.99 buy
Apiento & Co follow up their 7” for Claremont 56 with a new 12” for Leng. This again has lush, mellow ibizian mood about it but could work wonders on the dancefloor late at night. The slow arpegiated groove leads us into a hooky piano with the strings and then a lovely piano solo drifts along and completes the package. Pete Herbert turns it round and aims straight for the dancefloor in true disco Herbert style. A great new 12” from Leng!

Holger Czukay - Persian Love Holger Czukay Persian Love Claremont 56 023 12inch € 9.99 buy
Holger says ‘“Persian Love” was the first piece of music I created when I had just found my own way. After so many years being a bass player in CAN I was now in the situation to play guitar again. Deep in the night in my home studio I switched the multitrack machine on half speed and played the guitar in slow motion – playing back was then in normal speed. That’s how I could manage to become a guitar player again. The drums and percussion had been recorded the same way which was no problem for Can drummer Jaki Liebezeit who was moving like a sloth. Only the singing couple from Persia (Iran) was an exception. I recorded them live from my short wave radio. However, the musical secret of “My Persian Love” cannot be explained so easy. How could a musician from far away synchronize himself to my guitar as if he was listening to it simultaneously? And would the music have sounded the same if he would have been alive there in my studio? Sometimes it seems to be better when the musician cannot hear the other one during his recording.’

Azari & III  - Indigo Ep. Azari & III Indigo Ep. Turbo 085 12inch € 8.99 buy
Hard jacking retro chicago influenced tracks by Azari & III

Bonar Bradberry - Siula Grande (Pete Herbert rmx) Bonar Bradberry Siula Grande (Pete Herbert rmx) Needwant 009 12inch € 8.99 buy
Bonar delivers two sweet originals. A-side comes with a great remix from Pete Herbert. Siula Grande grips the floor with a hypnotic house groove and dark rave bassline, capturing the raw energy of early classics with modern production skills and buoyancy of current house music. Piano led melodies lead into enveloping breakdowns and result in a true dancefloor weapon. Pete Herberts rework highlights the smooth groove and adds a nineties inspired piano and guitar lick – lifting the track to new heights. Flip side with For All Time is a 9-minute workout of deep slo mo funk inspired melody. Lazy beats dance on a backdrop of embracing sounds producing an evolving journey into space and time coming with a solid Burnski dub mix! Sweet!

Bvdub - The Art Of Dying Alone Bvdub The Art Of Dying Alone Glacial Movements 008 CD € 17.99 buy

He has collaborated with labels such as Millions of Moments, Echospace, Smallfish, Styrax, and Kompakt. bvdub spans different sound-sorgents of classical moulds such as piano, acoustic guitar, violin and angelic female voices, along with delicate digital soundscapes. 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.

Opening with the dreamy version where a plucked string intro and Rats voice drive you into a deep, cinematic, adult dance groove. Prins Thomass delivers a more uplifting and upbeat mix. A Lush balearic trip with a live warm feel to it in which a guitar plays along the melody, accentuating the spaced out feel of the track, lifting it into higher states. Stay gold gives the listeners a techno version where sparse, mechanical drums and a minimized melody take us to the motor city for a night drive in the dark. Own it, feel it, play it loud.
