New Releases

the Outrunners – Running For Love And Money

12″ | Flexx | flexx017 | € 9.99

Stephen Falken and Pierre de la Touche rekindle the Outrunners project with the ‘Running For Love And Money’ EP. Their signature sound was recently featured on Eskimo’s latest ‘Cosmic Balearic Beats 2’ compilation and as founding members of the mysterious Valerie Collective they have a loyal fan base. Their sound is vintage futurism of italo disco pop (without…

Breakbot – Baby I’m Yours

12″ | Ed Banger | ed034 | € 9.50

Shit hot Breakbot with a great release on Ed Banger. ‘Baby i’m Yours’ is warm soulful disco with remixes by Siriusmo and La Funk Mob. Flip for ‘Make You Mine’ which is great vocoder disco funk!

LCD Soundsystem – This Is Happening

2LP | DFA | dfa22502 | € 20.99

LCD Soundsystem’s last and second best album (right after 45:33). Marvelous artwork on gatefold sleeve and insert.

Antena – Camino Del Sol (Deluxe Vinyl Edition)

2LP | Numero Group | n002v | € 23.00

Amazing deluxe vinyl reissue of one of our favourite ever albums – Antena’s bossa-pop masterpiece ‘Camino Del Sol’. It really is the perfect summer album – all swooning changes, percolated Bontempi melodies and the kind of bittersweet, understated euphoria that defined Belgium’s seminal ‘Le Disques du Crepsecule’ imprint in the early 1980’s. If you don’t know…

Shangaan Electro – New Wave Dance Music From South Africa

2LP | Honest Jons Records | hjrlp52 | € 20.99

An extraordinary compilation from London’s Honest Jon’s imprint, Shangaan Electro: New Wave Dance Music From South Africa. Compiled by Honest Jon’s boss Mark Ainley and former Basic Channel member Mark Ernestus. 12 tracks produced by Nozinja. Not for everyone but we think it’s pretty mindblowing.

Moebius – Tonspuren

LP | Bureau B | bb40 | € 20.99

Beautiful reissue on Bureau B of this classic 1983 kraut electronica album by Moebius from Cluster. An absolutely essential album in any self respecting electronic music fans collection. Highly recommended.

2LP | Mute | stumm321 | € 19.00

Crazy, no boundaries, oddball NY band. Great stuff. Includes 12 page glossy 7″x7″ booklet and full bonus CD album in printed cardsleeve.

Vampire Weekend – Contra

LP | XL Recordings | xllp429 | € 20.99

Contra sees the band stretching out and adding new textures, instrumentation, and rhythms into their sound. The album feels altogether fresh, joyous, and like nothing else but is immediately recognizable as the sound of Vampire Weekend. Recommended.

Jerry Moon – Red Shoes / Over and Over

12″ | I.D. Limited | idl010 | € 14.99

Number 10 in the ID Limited series contains another unreleased find from the vault: Red Shoes by Jerry Moon. He is known for his collectors item Over And Over, which is also on this record in the vocal and instrumental version. Get it while you can.

Alan Cook – Don’t Give Up

12″ | Energy Level Records | el004 | € 14.99

After the release of Closed it’s time for another Spanish release that gives you the sunshine feeling any time. Alan Cook released some songs on Max Music during the 80s like Do You Want To Stay and Bad Dreams, but he was also involved in many other projects. It’s Sabadell sound all over with his new song Don’t Give Up. On the b-side you’ll find the Spanish version…

Monika Novak – Lane Of My Life / I Want You Back

12″ | Energy Level Records | el003 | € 14.99

The second release on this labels of the incredible voice of Monika Novak is a double hit release with two uptempo tracks. Energy, flashing synths and great melodies are the keywords for this record. ”Lane Of My Life” is a high energy burner and ”I Want You Back” has a sweet touch but is still pumping.

Ryan Paris – I Wanna Love You Once Again

12″ | I Venti D Azzurro | vam2007 | € 22.99

Another new hit from another famous man in Italo Disco History: Ryan Paris. ‘Dolce Vita’ was his worldwide hit in 1983, but today Ryan is still a great singer with great songs. ‘I Wanna Love You Once Again’ has been rearranged for this exclusive vinyl release.

Ilija Rudman – Time And Time

12″ | Electric Minds | eminds015 | € 8.99

Sweet early NY disco influenced disco sound of labels such as West End, Prism, Brunswick and Prelude, combined with a flirt to the early house like Larry Levan used to play. Excellent remix,edit digging job by Ilija Rudman as usual! Cool remix by Michael J Collins.

Stephen Falken – Visions

12″ | Flexx | flexx015 | € 8.00

Aside from taking his pseudonym from the enigmatic nuclear-holocaust computer game programmer from seminal 80’s techno-thriller Wargames, Falken is also a member of The Outrunners, a duo who relish their Italo Disco, have two feet firmly planted in the 80’s and have a track forthcoming on Eskimo’s Cosmic Balearic Beats Volume 2. Falken and The Outrunners are also…

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. It’s a single LP which contains 12 tracks. A couple of shorter skits, but most pretty much full tracks.…

Mark E – Special FX / Christo

12″ | Merc Music | merc003 | € 9.50

Mark E is arguably the leading light in the resurgent obsession with all things disco and slo-mo. Special FX weaves snatches of mid-Eighties magic into a lengthy groove-out with that patented Mark E ‘throb’. Whereas Christo drives us down a decidely more Detroit bound freeway, sounding as it does like Carl Craig remixing Prince, well. Recommended.

Electrick Dragon – Electric Dragon Ep

12″ | Moustache | mst015 | € 9.50

Electrick Dragon is known for it’s many releases during the last couple of years and is now set for a full release on the Moustache label. This dark poppy new wave and italo-isch E.P. has it all. Tip!

Mr Pauli & David Vunk – We Are The Laser Lords Ep

12″ | Moustache | mst017 | € 9.50

Don Froth – 10,000 CC / Holiday (Dubbed Out)

12″ | Phonica | phonicawhite02 | € 9.50

Don Froth initially appeared on our radar last year with ‘Foam’ – a laidback, dubby disco number. Forget about such niceties… ‘10,000cc’s’ is ‘Foam’s’ rowdy sibling. A twisted, bass-heavy stomper of a track, that takes disco, dub-step and punk-funk, spins them in blender and spits out one of the rudest basslines we’ve heard in a while. We’re talking big…

Jean-Pierre Massiera – The Unreleased

12″ | YDNY | ydny01 | € 9.20

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…

Various Artists – The Minimal Wave Tapes Volume One

2LP | Stones Throw | sth2233 | € 22.99

This is the first official volume of minimal wave music from Europe and North America recorded in the 1980s.

Now, they’ve been remastered from their analog source tapes for your listening pleasure. Brought to…
