Alaula (12")
Cat: C 56055. Rel: 17 Oct 16
  1. Alaula (6:04)
  2. Alaula (Mudd Piano dub) (5:50)
Review: As it approaches the end of its' first decade, Claremont 56 continues to lead the way when it comes to atmospheric, sun-kissed Balearica. This latest chunk of horizontal goodness comes courtesy of Essex-based Statues, a trio who caught label boss Paul 'Mudd' Murphy's attention after submitting a string of impressive demos. "Alaula" is a softly spun delight, with Grant Carruthers' impassioned vocals weaving themselves around alluring acoustic guitars, rich bass, twinkling Rhodes lines, and Robin Lee's immaculate cello parts. Murphy delivers the obligatory flipside remix, serving up a delay-laden dub built around intricate percussion, life-affirming pianos, and Lee's wonderful strings.

  4. Tears (7:09)
Review: The Old Euphonium marks a welcome return for Jim Baron (Crazy P, Ron Basejam etc) and Benjamin J Smith's occasional collaborative project, White Elephant. They begin with the smoky blue-eyed soul shuffle of "Don't Change Your Way", where brilliant piano parts and dubbed-out vocals stretch out over an organic groove, before inviting Manatee member Huw Costin to add his impassioned vocals to the AOR disco-goes-Balearic vibes of "Blood". On the B-side, you'll find the hushed, sun-kissed grooves of "Up For Air", and the glistening, sun-brought adult contemporary pop of "Tears". It's arguably the strongest moment on a pleasingly solid E.P.

Review: Globetrotting producer Mark Barrott now presents several fine remixes of tracks from his brilliant Sketches From An Island 2 LP release earlier in 2016. First up CFCF (Paper Bag Records/1080p) delivers a wonderful rendition of "Brunch With Suki", reminiscent of late 90s, drum n bass influenced electronica. On the flip, there's a wonderful gamelan workout on Nu Guinea Aquarium's truly breathtaking rework that's just made for drifting. Finally there's some smooth laid-back disco vibes, '80s style on "Der Stern, Der Nie Vergeht (Domenique Dumont mix)" and that boogie baseline with those pan-pipes work with each other in perfect harmony.

  1. Babadag (Khidja remix)
  2. Shop (Mehmet Aslan remix)
  3. Doamne Ce Greseala Am (Mehmet Aslan remix)
  4. 1 Septembrie (Khidja remix)
Review: Emotional Especial comes together with Future Nuggets for a "Special" one-off collaboration. Reinterpreting the music of Steaua de Mare are four remixes from rising (Eastern) stars Khidja and Mehmet Aslan.

The first in a short series of Especial "Specials" - where new artists are brought together for unique releases - we start by teaming up with Future Nuggets to present again the sonic offshoot in the unique band, Steaua de Mare. Returning in remix form, songs from their self-titled album, as well as extra additions, are specially reworked.

First Khidja take album track Babadag to new psychedelic depths, adding multiple layers of guitar and synths, all inexhaustibly dubbed and re-dubbed until a whole new track emerges for the more discerning minds.

Next Mehmet Aslan is focused on the dance-floor, carefully reconstructing new track Shop into a club orientated groove, aiming straight at the feet with inevitable results. On the flip, Mehmet then reworks album highlight, Doamne ce greseala am, amassing tension in careful, subtle ways, crafting a version that is a proper meeting of hearts and minds.

To finish, Khidja return to remix the previously unreleased 1 Septembrie. Going to great lengths in managing a myriad of details, with balearic, kraut, pseudo-disco and exotica reverberations all pulsating, here then are on point examples of remix manipulation. A perfect way to start this series and showcase these wonderful artists.

Review: Marko Pelaic is Homeboy and has appeared previously on the likes of Wolf Music and Lovedancing. With a bit of help from buddy Adam Semijanac on vocals, he delivers some smooth and emotive deep house on the Heart Is Where The Homeboy Is EP. Starting out with the dusty and Herbie Hancock-ish live jam "Livada" there's the funky "Decisions Ricochet" a loveable soul excursion featuring Bebe Na Vole's amazing vocals. On the flip "Bonbon" goes for some mellower loungey flavour and is perfect for that afterhour session back at yours, while "Kornati Sunsets" features some rich analogue synth tapestries and bongo drumming sounding like something off of Grace Jones' legendary Nightclubbing LP.

  4. Moon Plain (Soft Rocks Acperience) (7:14)
Review: REPRESS ALERT: Little do people know that Coober Pedy is an opal rich town buried deep within the red and arid outback of South Australia. Lewie Day (aka Tornado Wallace) and Tom Moore may be from Melbourne, but the duo make up the Coober Pedy University Band, coining the term "Krautback" to describe this Moon Plain EP. Drawing upon italo synths and mid-tempo Balearica as inspiration, the first release comes in 12" form via Soft Rocks' Kinfolk label. The reverb washed Australian crooner Chet Faker appears on the title track "Moon Plain" alongside heavy struck piano chords, while "Sentenced Beyond The Seas" is a flow of groggy atmospheres and downtempo beats. "Oblong" is the the EPs stand out italo track with short bass arpeggios a highlight, while Soft Rocks "Acperience" mix of "Moon Plain" takes on an acidic and space western theme.

Review: NuNorthern Soul take a brief respite from their BJ Smith series so boss man 'Phat' Phil Cooper can indulge his love for Ryo Kawasaki. Focusing on the period that the '70s met the '80s, Selected Works pulls together five delicious slices of Kawasaki bliss from a boundary pushing discography that spans writing, arranging, producing and playing. For an introduction to Kawasaki, this release is near perfect, taking in sublime jazz through heaving slabs of funk to out-there electronic vibes. Extra context is provided in the extensive sleeve notes from Marc Rowlands that pull from his 2015 interview with Kawasaki. Despite being five tracks long, this still feels like a generous rifle through the Ryo archives.

  1. Stay
  2. Venus Requiem
Review: Having previously impressed on Argot and Home Taping Is Killing Music with her blends of evocative deep house and floor-friendly Chicago rhythms, The Black Madonna tries a different approach on this debut for the recently launched Night Owl Diner label. You could certainly describe both tracks as "Balearic", and there's a real air of wide-eyed positivity about the tumbling melodies, swirling synth-strings and mid-80s pop production of head-nodding deep house cut "Stay". It's pretty darn tasty, all told. Almost as good is "Requiem", which appears to be built around a loop lifted from Cherrelle and Alexander O'Neal's "Saturday Love" (with, of course, additional synths and tuneful electronics).

He breaks down the sugar-dusted original into something freeform, downtempo and acid jazz leaning, while on the flip, "Music Overflow", sounds exactly like a production you would make after being inspired by sunshine, soul, Roy Ayers and a room full of drum machines and synthesisers.

  3. Aiolos (Cass version) (7:03)
Review: Given the breathtaking beauty and sheer brilliance of Jan "Wolf Muller" Schulte and Cass's first collaborative mini-album, Sound of The Glades, you'd expect this remix package to disappoint in comparison. In fact, International Feel has done a superb job. It helps, of course, that each producer delivers a remix. Schulte's "Wind Version" of "Adios" is wonderfully evocative, with the original's chords and fretless bass flitting winding its' way around the producer's typically organic groove, while Cass goes all horizontal with a dreamy, atmospheric take on the same track. Best of all, though, is Tolouse Low Trax's A-side remix of "Glade Runner", which laces the original's accordions and hand percussion over a chunky, head-nodding 4/4 groove.

Review: Light Of Other Days is a Zurich based label run by Marc Hofweber and Georg Munz and for this release they tap mysterious trio Ethimm for this rather beautiful EP. Starting out with a cover of Rhythm & Sound's "Why" featuring Veronique's gorgeous vocals, this is a lovely electro-modern classical crossover journey. They then team up with fellow Swiss purveyor of the deep Lexx on the smooth late night groove of "Late". On the flip, "Next" and "Done" go for some rather reflective and dubbed out downbeat vibes which will appeal to fans of Blackest Ever Black acts Dalhous or Raime. Curious stuff indeed!

Review: If you want hugs on the dancefloor deep into the night, Late Night Tough Guy's (formally DJ HMC) "Bless The Rains" is the perfect drug. The Adelaide based luminary rehashes Toto's "Africa" in a heavily pitched down and simple edit fit for any fromage-laced discotheque. Skirting around the throbbing bassline and triangle hits of "My Body On Fire" is a vocal that will have some train-spotters pulling their hair out in frustration, while "Not In Love Anymore" will have both Warren G/Nate Dogg and Michael McDonald fans bumping and grinding to excess.

Review: Long-time co-conspirators Lee Forster and James Hadfield build on their entrance serenade Not An Animal earlier this year with two more delicious Claremont-sized slabs of sparkling Balearica. "Frontier" is a real sunlight-breaking-through-the-clouds track with its crisp guitar strums cutting through the heaviest of clouds, toeing a line of sedate-but-strong instrumentation behind it. "Coming In" runs a housier code with its additional layers of darker synths and more dominance on the lolloping drums. Highly versatile.

Bouncing on the delightfully twisted 9/8 groove, this is a unique contact with a multiverse under meticulous construction, an excursion abundant in haunting tunes and unfamiliar melancholy.

  3. Take Me To Your Heart
  4. 50 Ways To Leave Your Lover
Review: Question: How do you follow your last release that featured high profile remix treatments from Messrs Harvey Bassett and Kenneth Dixon Jnr? Los Angeles trio Pollyn have decided to answer that quandary by showing their own strength in the art of reinterpreting other's music on this rather party friendly burgundy twelve inch which features tracks from Liquid Liquid, Gorillaz, The Eurhythmics and Paul Simon. Sal P's ledgendary NYC troupe have their instantly recognisable "Optimo" given the Pollyn treatment, the trio succeed in stamping their own woozy psychedelic intentions while remaining faithful to what's a punk funk classic. A similar approach is taken to the Gorillaz track "DARE" which has Mr Albarn's high pitched tones taken on by singer Genevieve Artadi while keeping Shaun Ryder's participation intact - nice rhythmic switch up on this too. On the flip, "Take Me To Your Heart" by The Eurhythmics gets a punk funk cover from Pollyn that could feasibly find a comfortable home on a DFA B Side while little Paulie's "50 Ways To Leave Your Lover" gets a subtle rolling re-edit.

Review: Four years after its original release, tracks from Land of Light's eponymous album get a new set of remixes. Fans of Lovefingers' ESP Institute label may recall the orginal remixes, released back in 2012, and this new set are just as essential. Kuniyuki Takahashi's take on the title track sets the tone, with sensuous ambient textures and gently warbling guitars creating an atmospheric mood. Tambien's version is just as esoteric, but slightly more understated, while Seahawks rounds off this latest remix package with his take on "Bell Rock Outpost". Juddery, slow-paced drums and warm, jazzy piano lines create another beautiful piece of music - tailor-made for those sunset moments.

Laid back electric pianos and marimbas layered over a tight house groove. Dance Naked the second track follows the same kind of pattern upping the tempo slightly,building slowly towards a deep bass drop and arped string line. Again more trademark layers. Full on dancefloor action. The B-side brings one of the greatest Italian house producers ever to IIB. Don Carlos' remix is really something special. A relentless subby double bass sounding b-line relentlessly underpins this delightfully atmospheric excursion into deepness. The Coyote remix slows down the pace and dons its flip flops for a little tropical shuffling. IIB hitting the spot again.

Review: Rudy (aka Robin Lee from Faze Action) makes a welcome return on FAR, taking in the atmosphere of sunnier climes.

The title tracks opening cascades and swirling synths fall into an easy Balearic groove, with singing melodies, exotic marimbas, a chugging synth bass and production echoing a mix of Compass Point, Grace Jones et all on holiday in Europe, whilst setting the scene for the EP. The 2nd track is introduced by hypnotic tones against analog synth arpeggios and haunting synth solos, invoking the "Sky Goddess". Back down to earth on the flip side is an invitation to sail down the "Shimmering Coast", with its relaxed guitar groove and keyboard flourishes all underpinned by a stunning 80s sounding bass line. Dropping anchor at "Fortune Lagoon", we are treated to some of Rudy's personally designed analog keyboard sounds, which mange to challenge yet retain tropical warmth.

Finally live chorus bass introduces us to "Body Wave" which manages to fuse easy French Disco with jazzy Fender Rhodes hooks. By Nature is a reflection of white washed houses, palm trees, refreshing coastal beaches and yacht parties. Don't forget your sunglasses and tanning oil!

Next up The Samps turns "Shockers" into a warped mesh of psychedelic dance, whilst Superior Elevation's Tom Noble adds some killer boogie vibes to "Underdogs". Finally Sun Araw man Cameron Stallones appears under rare alter-ego Aristrocrat P. Child to re-edit "Roll" in superb fashion.

For this brand new Music For Dreams series we launch with four versions of Leo's vision of the island's musical genus: "Adamo & Eve". Building, subverting and repurposing elements with some of his favourite peers throughout, each take tells a different tale: Rocca's Paradiso and Original Sin mixes provide a UR pace and space-aged energy while Italian selector legend Fabric creates much slower, sensual experiences with the On Air mix embodying everything that's great about Balearica and Es Vedra mix taking us even deeper into dubbier pastures.

This mellow four-track Transient EP is Joe McBride's fourth for Apollo and first of 2014 which sees him provide two tracks of heartfelt, LTJ Bukem-styled drum and bass, while "Contact" sounds like something you might here from Giegling's Dwig mixed with R&B oohs and an ahhs. Synkro then completes the EP with a soft beaten, dubsteppy ambient number appropriately titled "Falling".

  1. Jean Claude Gavri - "The Lost Edit"
  2. Moplen - "The Riddum Slave"
Review: The EBO label returns with Seaside Edits don Jean Claude Gavri sharing sides on a 12" with Italian contemporary Moplen that's slightly too vitamin D-infused in tone for the Winter months but will nice up any left leaning discotheque. Any self respecting disco scholar should have no issues IDing the source material here, Gavri taking on the Carly Simon classic "Why" and adding subtle Caribbean disco vibes to proceedings and occasionally dipping into the filters on this extended groove rendition. On the flip "The Riddum Slave" sees Luca Locatelli work similar magic, filling the Grace Jones cut of the near same name with all manner of dub fx, neat loops and hot breaks.

  2. When The Rain Meets The Stones
  3. Kick & Flutter (Soft Rocks Naked remix)
Review: Kinfolk head to Philly for Kinfolk004, welcoming committed vinyl rummager and top notch DJ Billy Werner into the fold. This two track 12" is the apparent end product of that rare occurrence where budding producer sends label unsigned tracks that are actually decent. "Kick & Flutter" is a blinky blue sunrise of a tune, innocent, euphoric and, dare we say, totally Balearic... not retro but timeless. "Where the sea meets the Stones" treads a similar line but with a more incessant acidic undertone. Both perfect for chasing sunrises and sunsets... As is traditional you get a Soft Rocks remix to boot... murmured voices, gentle pulses and psychedelic repetition. Did any of the original make it in there? Just relax and enjoy it...

  1. This Devil Can Dance
  2. Lone Soldier Theme
Review: New alias for Richard Gateaux (Aka Phoreski) dropping two essential jams for the Soft Rocks boys on their Kinfolk imprint. 'This Devil Can Dance' is a scary anthemic electronic dance monster from the left that will slay many a dance floor this year and has legend written all over it. Add to the mix the downtempo delight 'Lone Soldier Theme' that takes a different electronic route with it's echoes of 'Assault On Precinct 13' / 'Escape From New York' filmic vibe this makes for an essential package.

  1. Madrugada (7:26)

  3. African Obsession (11:55)
Review: Uber bring the new Mushrooms Project EP. A slight diversion for Uber into the cosmic afro infused musical stylings that the Mushrooms boys are masters. Madrugada's tribal energy is reminiscent of Tony Esposito or Tullio de Picopo. The Italian afrobalearic groove that we at Uber love so much. The Big Boobs is a slower more contemplative track, still holding onto the percussive feel but with hints of the east. I suspect the title is influenced by last summers trip to the Great Outdoors in Birmingham. Finally we come to the epic musical journey that is African Obsession. Continuing the fine Italian tradition of tribal dance music this is a tight superbly produced trip into afrocosmiche. 15 minutes of hypnotic beauty. Uber hitting the spot again.

  1. Sailing On A Black Sea
  2. Sad Beach
  3. Through The Desert Land
  4. Seaport Theme
  5. Water Plain
Review: Uber's latest offering is a sublime 5 track ep from French producer Shelter. Sailing On A Black sea is a drifting piece of ambient electronica. Late night stargazing on the deck with the waves gently lapping on the shore. Sad Beach continues with the layered textures with a little more of a percussive feel. through the Desert Land is shimmering mesmerising journey through the dunes with loose congas soft guitars and a hypnotic Jews Harp. Seaport theme continues the coastal vibrations but with a touch of bounce and uplifting choral vocal stabs and louche pads. Finally Water Plain closes the journey with kalimbas and xylophonic melodies and the contining theme of phosphoescent seas and soothing synth sounds. A very accopmlished slice of beach bar balearica destined for sunsets around the med for years to come.

  1. Heaven Taste (Steven Wilson original mix edit) (11:21)
  2. Heaven Taste (Jimi Tenor remix) (9:09)
Review: The iconic Finnish label Sahko Recordings comes correct once more with this 12" edition of the classic "Heaven Taste" by British art-rock troupe No-Man. Tim Bownes and Steven Wilson recorded "Heaven Taste" with the assistance of Mick Karn, Richard Barbieri, Steve Jansen and Ben Coleman in studio sessions back in the summer of '92, with the track first surfacing as a rather epic, enveloping 21 minute version on the Painting Paradise EP for One Little Indian in 1993. Given the length and class, it is no surprise "Heaven Taste" was adopted by the emergent ambient techno scene rising in London in the early '90s with Mixmaster Morris a particular champion. This Sahko edition sees No-Man's Steven Wilson turn in an 11-minute edit that doesn't lose any of the original's finely crafted grandeur, whilst on the B-side Jimi Tenor pops up with a rearrangement that highlights his skill at playing the flute and keyboard!

Crepusculo (12")
Cat: 32518 11004. Rel: 02 Jul 12
  1. Crepusculo
  2. Fuga
Review: Adult Contemporary follow up that superlative entry from Lord Of The Isles in belated but worthy fashion, as Dany Dorado takes the helm for a double dose of well judged South American disco that's aimed at switching the mood from the horizontal to vertical and inclined to dance. This release marks the vinyl debut for the Chilean producer and what a debut it is, as the lead track "Crepusculo" gently rolls into life via a near infinite expanse of balearic sound. Just as you're senses lose focus amidst this inviting backdrop, an almighty arpeggio lead surfaces and heads skyward atop a strident disco kick. "Fuga" is less shy in its intentions, swiftly settling into a fluttering electronic disco arrangement akin to Lindstrom at his most Scandolearic which is again driven by drums which have real substance to them. Release includes a nice little printed card insert!
