  1. Jack Cutter - "Serpentstrut" (feat David Harks - 40 Thieves mix parts 1 & 2) (10:34)
  2. Alumnia - "Views From A Blue Train" (Leo Mas & Fabrice On Air dub remix) (8:38)
Review: Paul 'Mudd' Murphy has been digging into the Claremont 56 archives of late, rustling around to find unreleased gems deserving of release. He shared some on the recent "Claremont 56 Editions" compilation and has decided to offer up more on this fine 12". The A-side 45 Thieves remix of Jack Cutter's "Serpentstrut" is particularly potent, with the Californian duo turning the track into a near 11-minute voyage through dubbed-out cosmic disco with undeniable 1970s art-rock flourishes. It's absolutely stunning all told, as is the spaced-out revision of Alumnia's "Views From A Blue Train" by Italian Balearic legends Leo Mas and Fabrice. Their "On Air Dub" is a slow, low-slung masterpiece best consumed under the influence of something stronger than water.

  6. Statues - "Heaven Fades" (8:59)
  7. Holger Czukay & U-She - "Longing" (4:27)
Review: In the early years of the label, Claremont 56 delivered a slew of crate digging compilations. Now boss man Paul 'Mudd' Murphy has decided to flip the script by launching a brand new series dedicated to new and unheard music from the label's vaults. There's plenty to get excited about on volume one, with the set offering a mixture of fine dancefloor workouts (the killer disco dub of HF International's superb cover of Hall & Oates "I Can't Go For That" and the krautrock thrust of Fursatt's "Leerlauf") and more languid downtempo jams (see the Balearic bliss offered up by Statues, Hear & Now and Abby Spells). There's also a previously unheard collaboration between the late, great husband-and-wide team Holgar Czukay and U-She that's worth the admission price on its own.

  6. Anthems (4:06)
Review: REPRESS ALERT: Emotional Rescue take one final trip into the archives of The New Morning - the Munich-based Afro-cosmic project active in the mid-'90s. This third round of tripped-out dancefloor delights draws on a global panoply of sounds once again, starting in a mystical mood with "Kongo Bina" before firing up the party stove with "Roots & Culture" and slapping down a heavyweight chug on the fierce n' slow "Flatline". There's plenty more fireballs on the B-side, not least the looped-up funk of "Satan (Dub)" and the heavy hitting percussion of "Riddim Of Inari (Tribal Mix)". "Anthems" finishes the final volume of this valuable reissue series on a stirring, melancholic note with powerful choral voices and sentimental melodic refrains - the perfect emotional set closer.

  3. Down The Locale (Gengahr remix) (5:50)
  4. Walk On, Bye (Bullion remix) (6:42)
  5. Belle Dux On The Beach (William Doyle rework) (6:46)
Review: The second round of Man Jumping remixes on Emotional Rescue sees another strike force of big hitters tackling the illustrious material from an overlooked 80s curio. Bullion steps up first with a typically dynamic, many-sided version of "In The Jungle". Reckonwrong's take on "Sqeezi" channels his twee, off-kilter pop tendencies in brilliant fashion. Gengahr brings a touch of indie urgency to "Down The Locale", while Bullion returns for another fantastic remix on "Walk On, Bye". To close, William Doyle's angular guitar processing and surging, vibrant peaks bring a thrilling new slant to "Belle Dux On The Beach".

Review: REPRESS ALERT: Emotional Rescue continue to explore the fruitful early '90s exploits of The New Morning, a Munich-based crew who took their lead from the Afro-Cosmic scene pioneered in Northern Italy by DJs like Danielle Baldelli and Beppe Loda. On this second installment of spiritually charged, low tempo club killers, you get the chants and percussion of "Riddim Of Inari", tightly looped West African funk of "Mi C'Yaan" and the stunningly evocative "When Will You Come Down?". There's more rolling rhythmic business to be enjoyed on "Picayune" while "Cricket (part II)" amps up the distortion without losing the groove, and then "Ancient Nomads" seals off this volume in style with a slow, hard-slapping beat to get fully entranced too.

  4. Third Eye Dub (feat Nasiri) (5:59)
  5. Kawe's Dream (feat Ayan) (3:28)
Review: When it comes to hybrid blends of intoxicating world music sounds and contemporary dancefloor rhythms, few producers are quite as accomplished as Nicola Cruz. He's at it again on "Hybridism", the Equador-based Frenchman's first EP for Multi-Culti for almost three years. Opener "Aima" sets the tone, with Cruz wrapping lilting synth lines, weirdo electronics and chanted vocals around a bubbling electronic groove, while "Naeku" makes the most of echo-laden drums, what sounds like an African children's choir and faintly foreboding acid lines. "Drom Tradisie" is an exercise in trippy sounds and layered percussion, "Third Eye Dub" is a darker and moodier slab of techno-exotica and "Kawe's Dream" is a blissful blast of clarinet-sporting musical positivity.

  3. Infinite Balance (5:14)
  4. Meta Music (3:19)
Review: Napoli producer Enrico Fierro AKA Milord may not yet be quite as well known as fellow city dwellers New Guinea, but he shares the same love of cosmic synthesizer sounds, atmospheric electronics and lo-fi drum machines. "Meta/Music", his first EP for Pinchy & Friends, inhabits a similar sonic space to the Early Sounds Recordings regulars, too - or at least the synth-fuelled jazz-funk-meets-Balearic cuts "The Kemetist", "Infinite Balance" and the sparse, dubbed-out bliss of "Meta Music" do (incidentally, all three feature copious amounts of dub style delays on the drum hits, which is no bad thing). Best of all though is opener "Transcendental Experience", a slow-burning fusion of new age melodies, intergalactic electronics and minimalist drums that's worth the admission price on its own.

Review: Eric Phillips clearly knows what he's doing when it comes to arranging instrumentation. The composer known here as Kennebec has crafted a truly evocative collection of work on "Departure", managing to squeeze every last drop of emotion from the tools in his belt, or at the end of his fingertips.

The result is a proper journey into places close yet faraway, from opener "As We Grow Older", a classical piano outing, through to the likes of "Wellspring", which paints pictures in the mind of both the Far East and wild northern wildernesses. To describe it as easy listening would be to cast what for many is a very negative, throwaway net over proceedings. Nevertheless, it's very easy to listen to, with "Yesterday, Tomorrow" a real triumph of ivory-expressed feelings, and the final, titular number offering an excellent example of how this artist hasn't forgotten the joys of poppier avenues.
