just a lil warm bath to start it off, sofia kourtesis, "la perla"

Tracer Hand, Wednesday, 19 January 2022 21:40 (one year ago) link

That came out last year!

But! Sofia Kourtesis has actually released a song this week that samples Manu Chao of all people:

Raw bangers, I presume this is an alias of SWAP MEET (who does those great retro-jungle releases)?

too ambient for bobbins, but its another one by python so i'm posting it here. very afx-esque imo, reminds me of SAWII

looking forward to hearing the rest of the remixes. NAFF has 100% hit rate from what i've heard

Something to pair with the Omar S/Desire collab perhaps, the extraordinary Solitude EP from Hypnotique on Bordello A Parigi -

(this might also be stretching the bobbins category a bit)

melchior is one of most distinct producers from that era of minimal, i still have a lot of affection for his sound. curious to hear his new album

Thanks Nick, always good to know we have at least one listener sometimes :D

I’m going to be forward now and plug that I’m on the radio with my co-presenter Clara from 8-10pm UK time. Twitter link to info

Chewshabadoo, Friday, 11 March 2022 16:13 (one year ago) link

Possibly a monstrous question to ask but: what's the likelihood of the new Melchior getting some form of digital/CD release? I can't find any reference to this anywhere yet but may be looking in all the wrong places

technopolis, Friday, 11 March 2022 16:35 (one year ago) link

If it’s Perlon they don’t do digital but the albums generally get a CD release

I am using your worlds, Friday, 11 March 2022 16:46 (one year ago) link

Although since the vinyl came out last month maybe not in this case? The 3lp might be too long for a single cd. Just speculating here

I am using your worlds, Friday, 11 March 2022 16:49 (one year ago) link

It is - I got the last on CD a few years after release; not sure whether to expect a CD release for this one in the next 6 months or so? The vinyl is apparently out now but I'm trying resist re finances

technopolis, Friday, 11 March 2022 16:49 (one year ago) link

there will be a rip on slsk eventually if you're a degenerate like me

karl...arlk...rlka...lkar..., Friday, 11 March 2022 16:52 (one year ago) link

I feel you technopolis. I spent too much time trying to figure it out. It appears Perlon doesn’t always release their albums on CD (including their last album release, for bruno pronsato) and typically release the cd and LP at once. Ordering a 3LP when shipping costs are fast inflating is no small sacrifice…

New Tony Price album is very good

In late 2020, Tony Price found himself stuck in Los Angeles, unable to fly back to his native Toronto because of Covid-19 restrictions. But he found another way. A former radio DJ Price knew was selling their 1981 Lincoln Continental Mark VI, so he bought the car, intending to drive back to Canada in style. He found a bag of cassette tapes—homemade mixes and radio show recordings from the late '80s replete with motorik Detroit techno, thumping Chicago house and advertisements for products that only exist in memory—stashed in the trunk. The tapes and the old car made a perfect match, and Price played the cassettes constantly during the long drive from California to Ontario.

After his road trip, Price scoured the tapes for samples, pulling together what would become his new album.

this is bobbins of the past but if you like that mid 90s tribal chunkiness dub jamz release on wax pistols just got repressed

since they only did this one release and nothing else since 2014, wax pistols goes down in the highest echelon of berlin white label techno labels

takes about three minutes to get to classic status

Head High - Push It

DJ Prime Cuts - Rave

micarl, Monday, 7 August 2023 00:05 (three months ago) link

new Head High is so good, "Push It" is my favourite but "Break Away" is so warm and lush as well

boxedjoy, Monday, 7 August 2023 20:14 (three months ago) link

here's a few I've been enjoying lately:

Len Faki - It's Time (To Move Your Body) - much more housey than I would expect from one of the big Berghain names

Alan Dixon & Will Tramp - Sunday Stomper (Piano Preacher Mix) - a blatant Floorplan rip-off but there are far worse things to rip off

Ladymonix - So Sweet - the whole EP is really good, ravey sounds made to feel like a small basement instead of a big festival tent

Sofia Kourtesis - Si Te Portas Bonito - we've all heard this kind of wistful indie-leaning melancholy house before but she's so good at isn't she

boxedjoy, Monday, 7 August 2023 20:22 (three months ago) link

ladymonix is so my shit. new head high? can't wait to get that. need to see what he's been up to over the last 3 years.

ꙮ (map), Monday, 7 August 2023 20:26 (three months ago) link

i've always liked len faki but quick fast forward reveals one of those vocal hooks with an unmistakeable euro / german accent, i realize it's my hangup but i just can't sell it without cringing a little bit.

oh that means you missed last year's compilation!

Head High - Blind

Midland - You Never Take Me Dancing - square synths and crisp percussion, feels like a better take on the lumpy kind of Daniel Avery/later-era Tiga sound

I.JORDAN & Planningtorock - TNB (Night Version) - the hard house revival continues, but with enough strangeness to feel more than a pastiche

James Curd - I Am One, I Am Many (Adelphi Music Factory Remix) - nu-disco goes big-room house

Tino - Work My Body - yes we've all heard many tracks that sound like 1989 with this exact vocal but this is really well-executed

Matias Aguayo - El Camaron (DJ Babatr Remix) - big percussive propulsive energy

Elkka - DJ Friendly - massive madness that's not pretending to be anything other than big dumb fun
