C.E.O.

The Major Edits EP

WNCL Recordings

Format_dot_vinyl12" // £8.99

TECHNO / HOUSE

Cat. Number: WNCL022

WNCL tack to noisy garage-techno with six cuts from C.E.O. This is music for the most mutant 'floors, assaulting the senses with red-lining production and uncomfortably insistent swing rhythms between the salty blast of 'Screeching' to the incessant jabs of 'Zaapp' and the buck-wild styles of 'Loud' and 'Crayons'. TTT and UTTU fans, listen up.

Dots (Vol. 2)

Uncharted Audio

Format_dot_vinyl12" // £7.49

TECHNO / HOUSE

Cat. Number: UNCHDOT2

**Edition of 250** Mellow, deeper house, acid and electronica from the Uncharted Audio crew. Davor gives the session a smooth start with the elegant piano phrases and almost DJ Sprinkles-style shuffle of 'Ride With Me' next to the subtly intricate rhythms and AFXian ambient arrangement of Ukkonen's 'Terophase'. Shlømo takes us to moodier dub techno territory with 'Heart Of Bijamine', and Langer's 'Now We Are Six' gives a classy electro-acid kiss-off.

"First ever re-issue of this 1965 Jamaican Latin-Calypso-Jazz album by piano genius Cecil Lloyd, who led a 20-piece hotel band from the age of seventeen.

Featuring a solid rhythm section with conga and percussion, A Night in Jamaica was produced by Ken Khouri for Federal's Kentone label. This enduring masterpiece still echoes across the beautiful Caribbean Sea."

"Founding members of the original 'Rock In Opposition' movement and the inventors of 'Chamber Rock', mythic belgian band Univers Zero have continued to change and grow and develop over their entire career, while still keeping a ensemble sound and spirit that is easily recognizable. These recordings were unavailable before as LP format. Longstanding Belgian chamber rockers and avant-garde pioneers led by drummer/composer Daniel Denis, Univers Zero was formed in 1974 with co-composer and guitarist Roger Trigaux (who left the band in 1980).

SALVATORE MARTIRANO - The SalMar Construction, Sub Rosa
"These unreleased recordings were made at IRCAM in Paris in 1983. It illustrates the power that an electronic composition can achieve when the composer arrives at a true synergy with his synthesizer. This LP represents a significant performance by Salvatore Martirano (1927-1995) on his unique instrument, the SalMar Construction. Under development from the late 1960s, the SalMar is believed to be the first interactive 'composing machine' with digital logic circuits at its heart. The performance took place in the spring of 1983 at the Institut de Recherche et Coordination A… Read more

Cat. Number: FBR028

Outstanding mid-tempo disco session from Mark E for Futureboogie. Ask us, we'll tell ya this is probably the best we've ever heard from the Brummie producer. The A-side's 'Activity' is a dangerously hypnotic chugger riding the slickest bass arpeggio on astral trajectory to proper, Carpenter-esque peaks; B-side gets right down with the buttered claves and fruity yet minimal synth strokes, and 'Shapes' comes off like some long lost NWAQ production. Choice.

To this day the label still doesn't know the group's origin, but the joy of discovering this music unimpeded renders this fact almost irrelevant.

CHRIS FORSYTH & THE SOLAR MOTEL BAND - Intensity Ghost, NO QUARTER
‘Intensity Ghost’ is the follow up to last year’s critically acclaimed ‘Solar Motel’ album, which made year end lists at The New Yorker, Uncut Magazine and Popmatters and provoked ecstatic comparisons with Television and Neil Young & Crazy Horse to Richard Thompson and The Grateful Dead. ‘Solar Motel’ came together as a solo album but the band Forsyth assembled to tour the record - bassist Peter Kerlin, guitarist Paul Sukeena (Spacin') and drummer Steve Urgo (ex-War On Drugs) - took things to another level and quickly became a powerhouse.

Berlin's Battista brings the dirty house swing on 'Some Flow With…' via his Uaudio label. The title cut is frankly rude as fxxk, fixing foul mouthed samples to jagged dub chords in a pendulous groove running riot with syncopated subs/claps and natty tabla infusions. John Swing chimes in with a more rugged, bucking dub before Battista gets back on it with the crumpled disco sample jam 'Listen (Club Version)' and the puckered peacock strut of 'Dance - Me'.
