This weeks releases from the Clone distribution house:

EOD - Utrecht EOD Utrecht 030303 030EP002 12inch € 7.99 buy
This latest EP on 030303 is like a giant zeppelin. On the crossroads of electronics, twisted electro and classic UK techno, this is stuff that makes you want to, well…fly away and look down upon the dancefloor. EOD resides in Trondheim, Norway and we can see this fits into a landscape sparsely lit by the magical northern lights. A big six tracker for those who crave big portions of deep space!

The Outrunners - Running For Love And Money The Outrunners Running For Love And Money Flexx 017 12inch € 8.49 buy
Stephen Falken and Pierre de la Touche revive the Outrunners project with the ‘Running For Love And Money’ EP. The sound is vintage futurism of italo disco pop (without trying to be retro) with a blend of heartfelt nostalgia that seems to operate in a time zone all of it’s own. This release is limited to 330 copies with full picture sleeve and free download coupon.

A Made Up Sound - Demons A Made Up Sound Demons A Made Up Sound 04 12inch € 7.99 buy
Deadly serious new voyage into the unknown by A Made Up Sound… weirdly emotive, yet banging machine-funk with punching low end on the A-side; far out metallic broken-beyond-repair beat science on the flip. Soundsystem material for the year 2050… Recommended!!

Philogresz - Dependance Of Distant Us  Philogresz Dependance Of Distant Us Phil 001 12inch € 9.99 buy
Worthy follower of the very good Phil000. Philogresz is expressing himself with 2 well crafted and lush house tracks. Deep, bright and crafted with care! Dependance of Distant us also some as Sinner DC remix on the a2. Our favorite is Lowrider, a phat modern sub driven house track with a lot of tension thats slowly builds and builds. Seriously good!. Just a small run on nice silver vinyl and silver labels. Check!

Kondens - First Cut (Norman Nodge rmx) Kondens First Cut (Norman Nodge rmx) Kontra Musik 016 12inch € 7.99 buy
Kondens is a collaboration between Swedish electronic music veterans Andreas Tilliander (Mille Plateaux/Force Inc, Raster-Noton and Repeatle) and Stefan Thor aka Folie (Mitek). The sound is a hybrid of techy dubstep with a twist and banging dub-influenced techno. Pure peak time bliss without losing the love for dub and tape delays. The vinyl debut, First Cut EP, includes a stunning deep techno remix signed Norman Nodge.

Joel Alter - Dust Away Joel Alter Dust Away Sweatshop 006 12inch € 7.99 buy
Joel Alter blew us away some months ago with his Soul Clap release on Sweatshop! A much under-rated record which makes things go wild everytime its being dropped. Now he is back strong with more straight pumping chicago-inspired tracks that continues Alter’s forays into the rougher, tougher side of house music. Simple and effective tracks that reminds us of early raw house projects of Jeff Mills with basic elements and phat drum machines. Joel Alter going back to the basics and pushing the right buttons!

Andy Romano - Andy Romano EP Andy Romano Andy Romano EP Cyberdance 007 12inch € 8.99 buy
Legendary Italian producer Andy Romano makes his debut appearance on Cyber Dance with this stunning 4 track EP of classic Italo Disco-styled electro. Side A gives us both the vocal and instrumental versions of ‘Every Time Feel All Right’, a track that sounds like Mike Mareen on space-drugs attempting to seduce the population of Venus in the year 2025 and rocking your sound-system til the speakers blow while he’s at it. Side B delivers two instrumental epics, both the mesmerising and deeply synthed out ‘L’Amour Robotique’ and the vocoder italo-electro assault that is the EP’s closing cut, ‘Sayonara Robot’, guaranteed to destroy any dancefloor it’s unleashed upon. do not miss this!

Bvdub - The Art Of Dying Alone Bvdub The Art Of Dying Alone Glacial Movements 008 CD € 12.99 buy
San Francisco artist bvdub (Brock Van Wey) is known all over the world for having realized resonant jewels of rare beauty such as ”White Clouds Drift On and On”, ”We Were The Sun”, ”To Live” and many more. 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.

Jimpster - Alsace & Lorraine Jimpster Alsace & Lorraine Freerange 114 12inch € 8.99 buy
Great 12′ by Jimpster with a modern club tool on the a-side. But its about the b-side for us… a beautiful, beautiful timeless deeper (but not deep as in boring!!) house track that totally lifts things to a higher level. Classic rhythms and nice bass drive in the track, slowly building up with claps, fierce and intense strings and chords layered over each other. Classic and Timeless. Recommended!

Kirk Degiorgio - Nairobi (Carl Craig rmx) Kirk Degiorgio Nairobi (Carl Craig rmx) Art nr1 12inch € 8.99 buy
Originally a limited edition release on the now defunct EMI subsidiary dance label New Religion, both the original and Carl Craig remixes of Kirk Degiorgio’s ”Nairobi” have long been in demand after being out-of-print for several years. Almost 10 years after it’s creation, Nairobi is still a mainstay on the dancefloor’s – kept alive by those DJ’s who bagged a copy first time around. Testament to it’s longevity is it’s inclusion of Craig’s remix on the latest DJ Hell mix CD for Get Physical – introducing it to an even wider audience than it’s initial techno purist fan-base. Logical then for Degiorgio’s ART label to re-acquire the rights for re-release this September. Newly remastered for both vinyl and digital formats.

Top class reissue of the magnificent Italo gem Stand Up by Nexus, originally released back in 1983 on the quality Italian label Mr Disc Organisation. Produced by the great Maurice Cavalieri of ‘Charlie – Spacer Woman’ and Firefly fame, this classic track was ahead of its time with a wonderfully laid-back synth driven disco groove that sounds like a modern Metro Area production.

Various Artists - potential / outerspace circus Various Artists potential / outerspace circus Truth Is Light 010 12inch € 10.99 buy
The A side is a vocal take on possibly one of the rarest early hip hop records of all time. Whereas some people may have found it odd that a rap record started with Rick James type vocal wailing, only to end abruptly on the original, we decided to take out all the remaining 9 minutes of rap and focus exclusively on the singing. The result is a wild new rendition of an already holy grail classic. On the flip is one of those album cuts that seemingly should have never been released. A local private press job out of Chicago, IL: This three part song had no standard intro’s or outro’s, with each part having moments of brilliance and other moments of pure pain. A virtual one black man acid experiment gone wrong. It was a no brainer taking out all the trash and extending the real heart of the song with a homemade intro of our own. Reminiscent of Lonnie Liston Smith or any jazz funk masterpiece, this is a monster of a song!

Various Artists - Are you ready / Mouthpiece inhibited Various Artists Are you ready / Mouthpiece inhibited Truth Is Light 011 12inch € 10.99 buy
v/a – are you ready / mouthpiece inhibited – truth is light TIL 011 – us12′ Genre: Disco 1. Are You Ready 2. Mouthpiece Inhibited In Stock another killer Truth Is Light! in the label’s catalogue… tow pretty out there but marvelous tracks – once again Poleis on mastering duties. only 300 copies WORLDWIDE! The follow up to the hugely successful Calling You 12” with Payzant and Truth is Light’s 11th release. This is the 3rd part of the 3 records that Lev and Payzant worked on together in the same studio session. In continuing the mission to find and redo more out of the ordinary songs, the label has also begun the push for next level analogue mastering. We have hired the formidable POLE to help achieve this new quality in sound on all the future records. For the title cut we go to Orlando, Fl. And for those who thought soulful slappers were the exclusive sound of California, think again. Florida’s boogie sound was equally as dynamic as the west coasts signature sound. With it’s use of electronic drums, clap and minimal synth bassline, this record was quite unique for 83. Another unknown pre-house vocal monster. On the flip is just another taste of Payzant and Lev’s affinity for the more tougher, ghetto inspired sounds of dance music. Before hip hop took all street leaning producers towards making rap, a lot of underground r&b had a real gangster quality to it and this sexually suggestive song doesn’t disappoint. Real dark and eerie, yet completely infectious. Like the whore at the club who you know you shouldn’t have fucked with, but worth the shot of penicillin at the doctor’s that week. Lastly, Black and Punk. Inhibited is one of those songs that is not for everybody. But not every song has to be of the traditional dance genre. This rare as it comes 45 was just begging to be fixed and freaked. It’s for the type of dj who wants to take chances as there will be no hiding behind this song at all.
