DISCO / BOOGIE / FUNK

Cat. Number: ASVN005

"Recorded in both French and his native Duala language, it is a perfect example of 70s funk meeting afrobeat with African folk styles and flavors. Produced with legendary Parisian funk / disco / afro soundman Slim Pezin the album oozes style, quality, fine musicianship and is full of instantly memorable songs. The album opens up with stunningly catchy Jangolo. It's a prefect introduction to Jo's awesomely funky bass guitar. Slim adds layers of percussive "jangly" guitar and the track is underpinned by African drums, funky stabs and 70s nascent synthesiser string machines. Tracks such as… Read more

*Brand New (and 31st!) album From The Fall, produced by Mark E Smith* "The Fall are an English post-punk band, formed in Manchester in 1976. The band has existed in some form ever since, and is essentially built around its founder and only constant member Mark E. Smith. Initially associated with the punk movement of the late 1970s, the group's music has gone through several stylistic changes over the years, characterised by an abrasive guitar-driven sound and frequent use of repetition, and is always underpinned by Smith's distinctive vocals and often cryptic lyrics. Featuring all the tr… Read more

You should expect some incredible, definitive rhythm trips, with outstanding highlights in the hip-gripping battery of drums cycling thru tempo changes in Stone Alliance's 'Amigos'; the visionary fourteen minutes of modular synth and expansive electro-acoustic jazz scapes in Eddie Palmieri's 'Un Dia Bonita'; a wayward fusion of folk and delicious dissonance in Grupo Folklorico Y Experimental Nuevayorquino's 'Anabacoa'.

*Includes digital download voucher redeemable from the label* "While legions of artists show fidelity to psychedelia's roots, Unknown Mortal Orchestra has always shared the rare quality that makes the genre's legends vital, a constant need for exploration. Last year, frontman and multi-instrumentalist Ruban Nielson descended into his home studio in a Portland basement to chart out where's he traveled since his last set of unhinged psych-soul ballads. He discovered that the best way for him to move forward would be to look back. Where Nielson addressed the pain of being alone on II, Multi-Love takes on the complications of being together."

BASIC CHANNEL / DUB TECHNO

Cat. Number: M006

**Dark blue vinyl edition of 320** Manchester's subterranean dub-techno producer dishes two strong cuts on his spiritual home, MCMLXV. Nodding to classic Basic Channel and early Convextion, 'Pulse' rides steppin' hi-hats and hypnotic bass modulations buoyed by plush pads and swirling dub chords to get lost in. 'Submerge' is a little different, stirring up something more emotional with heart-swelling/sinking pads and clipped techno-house swing for late night sessions.

One of Detroit's most feted producers scales up to a stellar debut LP with 'Euphonium The Album' for his Sistrum label. Since 2006, Patrice Scott's productions have staked out a true skool Detroit house sound deeply inspired by the originators - Juan Atkins, Derrick May, Larry Heard, Ron Hardy - yet subtly distinguished by a subtle, soulful watermark all of his own. With 'Euphonium The Album' he explores that aesthetic over nine tracks of raw yet sophisticated house music, anchoring astral synth licks and gorgeous pads with purring and driving grooves between the spine-tingling lau… Read more

Bass Clef does his bright and melodic modular dance thing for Belfast's Rudimentary Records. 'Humming Blurs' sprawls the A-side with chiming, avian synth tones ruffled by stuttered and collapsing techno-dubbed drum chicanery for the IDM sweetboys and girls.On the other side, 'Chanson Du Ricochet' charges up a freakish, sputtering sort of alien techno deviation wrapped in shredded ribbons of salty modular scree and amorphous noise.

**Green Translucent Vinyl, Includes lyric sheet insert** "The Germs' debut 45 is often cited as the first true Los Angeles punk record. "Forming," the first song written by Darby Crash and crudely recorded in guitarist Pat Smear's parents' garage, captures the band's cultish allure and crushing lack of musicianship. The B-side track, "Sex Boy," was recorded live on the set of Cheech & Chong's Up In Smoke. As Claude Bessy gushes in Slash magazine in 1977,The Germs are "beyond music ... mind-boggling ... inexplicably brilliant in bringing monotony to new heights.""

Fresh outta Portugal, two slices of wave-riding psy-house from Niagara. Scuffed and tuff grooves are softened-up and spaced-out with super wide dub processing, wrapping lissom guitar lines, clangourous church bells and bestial noises to steppin' kicks and pinging synth in 'Falcão' or shaking out hash-infused psychedelic guitar licks and gritty, shuffling percussion on the solid bass drum ballast of 'Mustor'.

'Hive1' is the engrossing development of Tyondai Braxton's collaborative work first conceived for live performance in 2013. Sounding out remarkably close to the extreme psychoacoustics of Florian Hecker and modular tangles of Charles Cohen, 'Hive1' 'fesses eight tracks grown from the seeds of Hive's ensemble shows spanning their debut at New York's Guggenheim Museum in 2013 and successive events in The Sydney Opera House and London's Barbican.

Cross-pollinating traces of Afro-beat, dub and European synth music for the good of the dancefloor, as exemplified in the skanking steppers lilt and wiggle of opener 'Good Fela', essentially this is a modern iteration of the Italian cosmic disco genre coined by Danielle Baldelli and Beppe Loda in the '70s/'80s.

VARIOUS - Saved and Sanctified: Songs of the Jade Label, Numero Group
"Saved & Sanctified: Songs of the Jade Label The rawest, DIY gospel ever resurrected. The West Side of Chicago was just an annex of the deep rural South for Gene Autry Cash and his flock of recent Old Dominion transplants looking to cut their fiery, unadorned sounds indelibly to plastic. His Jade label absorbed those God-fearing artists: family bands with wailing kids and barely amateur groups sourced from local parishes, infused with reverberations of country and western and deep soul. Glinting authenticity shines from every track like a diamond in the unpolished rough—each group completely convinced that salvation comes through song."
