Landmark, ahead of its time, rare, French psychedelic disco from Jean Pierre Massiera. This shadowy figure has had his fingers in many of France’s most arcane musical pies, from Visitors’s surrealist sympho-prog anomalies and Horrific Child’s deranged diversions to JPM & Co.’s discombobulated disco aberrations, and has been quoted as Frances’ answer to…

Urban Tribe – Program 1 – 12

LP | Mahogani Music | mm25 | € 14.50

Not much really needs to be said about a new release on Mahogani Music, especially since it involves contributions from some of Detroits greats, including Kenny Dixon JR, Anthony Shakir, Carl Craig, and last but not least, the main man Sherard Ingram aka Stingray.

LP | No Label | bundt1 | € 15.99

After spending some time with Peter Seiler in a duo called “Sirius”, Michael Bundt (ex-Medusa) went on to record several solo electronic works that resembled both the space majesty of early Jean Michel Jarre and the quirky krautrockish kinetics of Moebius & Plank.

Frankie Goes To Hollywood – Pleasuredome

12″ | No Label | frankie01 | € 9.50

Limited edition white label of Soul Mekanik’s remix of Frankie Goes To Hollywood’s ‘Pleasuredome’.

Mr. Intl – The Groove

12″ | Mr Intl | thegroove001 | € 8.99

Hercules and Love Affair /Andy Butler and Jason Kendig reanimate the vocal of Madonna’s ‘Into the groove’, but as it would have sounded if the scene had taken place in Berlin’s Berghain today. A gritty bassline that is immediately recognizable, fat and moody synth hits, and a killer acidic 101 line transport Madonna into a dirty warehouse.

Beautiful Swimmers – Big Coast

12″ | Future Times | ft006 | € 11.75

Swimmers bring various inlfuences, from the reggae chunk, Sleeping Bag trumpets, and percussive tidal wave of the title track, to the 808 kraut spiral of ‘Touch Base’, a cut that sounds like Tangerine Dream doing some heavy breathing in Ghana. Tip.

12″ | Creme Organisation | creme1247r | € 9.50

Steamrolling his way onto the scene in 2007, 2562 has been a mainstay from the get go, with amazing production skills and a keen ear for what rocks the house. In a very short time the 2562 name became almost synonimous for Dubstep. But luckily for us there’s the Made Up Sound guise to provide us with a more mutant hybrid of slamming Jak-step (and remember where…

12″ | Clone | cjfd05 | € 9.20

These 2 new versions of Let’s get hot and Let’s get cool are the result of the original track Cool in the Pool recorded in my home lab in Cologne 1979. Sometimes absurdity can become the mother of invention. When I was working on the music of Cool in the Pool it finally became necessary to search also for a lyric. To my surprise they all seemed to have appeared…

Wolfram – Hall Of Shame (Skatebard remix)

12″ | DIskokaine | dk2010 | € 9.00

Allegedly a Japanese pressing, the “Hall Of Shame” is a weird mix of techno, house and the odd splash of disco dust. Comes with remixes from Skatebard, Speculator and King of Kong.
