A2 ”3rd Plan” this title says enough it was the third track that this genius made special for Moustache records… strong baseline and melody strait from the heart… B1 Spacer Darker than dark fatter than fat….superior drums. With hidden lyrics I want to be a Spacccerrrr and filled with the underground electrowavesound B2 Disco Tanzen this track will fit perfect in the very late dj slots. High Bpm trippy and trancy but with the strong electro feel……. Also a local hit at the magic waves festival and Road to Rimini Party.

A1 Robodance……will fill the a side with lasers strobes and smoke. Loud kickdrums strong melodies and dark electrowave high energy feeling…..do the Robodance! B1 Zanzibar express is an eye opener and heavy weight funky track. A real bassguitar provides the bassline and powerful percussion drumparts….AKAI MPC style…funk it up! B2 Italian dreams (instrumental) is a slow track for the start of your dj sets. A little diamond and beauty for this summer. Thinking of naked men with big moustaches dancing on the rimini beach in 1987. Limited pressing, comes with a nice coloured sleeve.

Gino Felino - Spend The  Night / Thank You For This World EP Gino Felino Spend The Night / Thank You For This World EP Creme 1250 12inch € 7.99 buy
For the 50th release Creme goes back to its Italo roots to release these two bombs. Ofcourse the rotting corpse of Italo has been desecrated endlessly over the last few years by predatory hipsters to gain scenepoints, but that doesnt mean there isn’t still some joy to be found in the oversatured tearjerking cotton candy sound of true mediteranean peacockery. So it is with some smug gratification that we present to you Gino Felino. Pure, uncut and real to the bone Italo – definitely Too Late for the Trend, but perhaps coming soon to an iPad near you. Listen and learn, cause none of you clowns roll like the West Coast rolls! Comes in a ultra neat package!

        Label’s info text: A long time ago ‘Shakers and Dreamers’ sent out a new electronic sound that set the tone for coming generations across their continent. Undercutting current commercial music structures, they emancipated the electronic musicians of the second ‘Invisible Earth’, Neptune. 120 million years ago, their tracks spread frovenue to venue across the great lakes of Neptune’s Canadian region. Following close in their footsteps ‘Foot-Sole Foreigner’ brought the music south and married it with the acoustic fore-runners of the electronic revolution Electronic music has always played an essential role in the cultural cycle of the ‘Invisible Earths’. 4.5 billion years of independent electronic music and culture now lie scattered in the outer Oort cloud, and the atoms of their creators now circle in the great storm clouds of the Gas Giants. But all unknown to us. ‘The Seventh Earth Project’ are now archiving this lost music and culture and making it available to the audiences of this Earth, The Seventh Earth.

            New 6 track EP from Mark Pritchard (Harmonic 313) and Steve Spacek. ‘How Does It Make U Feel’ pushes the sonic vapors of ‘Blen’ into a futuristic bass anthem, replete with bubbling 303 bass, sonar synths and Spacek’s commanding falsetto. Taking on the icy blueprint of Grime’s early, street-stalking strains and updating them with far more warmth and depth, ‘Said Speed’, ‘Lash Out’ and ‘Boingy’ are some of the most speaker-shredding tracks in recent memory.

            Emerging from an evergreen Los Angeles soulful musical family (band members have also played with Connie Price and the Keystones, Breakestra, Dakah, Rhythm Roots Allstars, The Lions, the Simple Citizens, etc) Orgone release their second album for Ubiquity.A giant step from anything they have ever released in the past. They pull on hard-nosed, stripped-down, New Orleans influences on tracks like “The Last Fool” and “Crazy Queen.” And effortlessly shift gears through more uptempo Afrobeat and Brazilian informed tracks like “Matanza” and summer anthem “It’s Time Tonight.” Unlike previous releases, Cali Fever features all-original compositions, and no covers. With lead singer Fanny Franklin at the helm, the band rip through soul cuts like “Give It Up” and “Overtime” with a wild West Coast flair. No wonder they’ve toured with the likes of Al Green, Gil Scott-Heron, Sharon Jones, the Roots, Greyboy Allstars and Groundation.
