Blue Jasmine

PROJECT MOONCIRCLE

Format_dot_vinylLP // £13.99

JUNGLE / FOOTWORK

Cat. Number: PMC136

**White Vinyl - Includes digital download code redeemable from the label** Diverse clutch of forward house and footwork hybrids crossbred with atmospheric electronica by Deft. Soaring beatless pieces bookend a dynamic set of productions swooping into neuro-sparked slow/fast Footwork with 'Vapid (Pt.2)' and hardcore future-tribalism with the sparring percussion of 'Promise Me', whereas 'Drawn' enters similar airspace occupied by Machinedrum's Vapour City and 'The Night Time' switches tack entirely to electro-boosted techno-house tempos with proggy trance chords.

No Hurry / Juliette

CHURCH

Format_dot_vinyl10" // £4.99

TECHNO / HOUSE

Cat. Number: CHURCHW002

Laidback but insistent house music from two of the guys behind Peckham's Rye Wax emporium. Warm vibes both sides, perhaps a little more urgent in the slicing hi-hats, disco bassline and moaning female vocal of 'No Hurry', and drugged-up in the strident 'Juliette'.

'71 (Original Soundtrack)

Touch Sensitive

EARLY ELECTRONIC / SOUNDTRACKS

Cat. Number: TSR001

David Holmes presents his sombre soundtrack to '71, a new feature film by Yann Demange set at the height of the troubles in Northern ireland. Following discussions with the director, Holmes wrote the entire soundtrack - presented here as a seamless 30 minute suite - before a single scene had been shot, preferring to draw upon his own experience of life in Belfast and follow the precedents of Ennio Morricone and Sergio Leone, who also worked with a similar method of writing the music before shooting. The mood is almost painfully tense and overcast throughout, making nods to John … Read more

Without clear narratives, the lyrics have a stream-of-consciousness quality, loaded with uncanny imagery.

"Tapper Zukie was high on a list of artists that Richard Branson in 1978 had in mind to sign to his new Reggae label Front Line. The mission was to sign the cream of the reggae crop when the Virgin record boss went down to Jamaica with a group of Reggae minded people, included in that group was Johnny Rotten, singer of the very recently disbanded group The Sex Pistols. The result of which would be a two album deal between Tapper and the label. The first release also in 1978 was the album Peace in the Ghetto and this release Tapper Roots."

It´s also, notably, the only album in their vast catalog where Deathprod was a permanent member of the group.
