Brian Briggs – Selected Music From The Album Brian Briggs
Wednesday, July 12th, 2017 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Brian Briggs – Selected Music From The Album Brian Briggs

Image: 1610871 So who is Brian Briggs? Well, to those who carefully read the production credits on records, his real name is John Holbrook, a well-respected mixer and sound engineer who worked, produced and recorded on Todd Rundgren’s Bearsville Records from 1974 to 1980, and prior to that, at IBC studios in London (most notably on The Who’s Tommy & Hendrix’s Electric Ladyland). Over the years the name of this music industry veteran has been attached to countless recordings, with many of them hitting platinum status. Another piece of trivia also tells us that once upon a time
Holbrook worked for EMS, a legendary company that specialized on sound synthesis.
So what’s exactly going on with this record? At first glance, we could say it’s a New Wave record (passed through a filter of synths and drum machine-like percussions) touching on different Rock styles in a similar way to Devo. There’s Rockabilly on his cover of Eddie Cochran’s ‘Nervous Breakdown’, Surf Rock on ‘Spy vs. Spy’ and even Ska-tinted Dub on ‘Psyclone’. So how did this pastiche of pop styles give us a record that was considered a classic at The Loft in New York City as well as at Italian clubs like Cosmic and Easy Going?
The key is on Side 1. AEO (Parts I & II) is basically the chant you’d imagine Nature making through a sequencer. With heavy electronic percussions, Analog synth sounds reminiscent of water splashes, and tape echo effects that can easily be mistaken to be the callings of birds and other animals during mating season, AEO has the DNA of every Balearic track to come. While equally giving a nod to the East and mother
Africa, it makes sense why this record was popular with impeccable selectors like David Mancuso and Danielle Baldelli.
Often bootlegged or found in compilations, we are honored to bring you this minimal classic by Brian Briggs in all its glory including the incredible pop art cover reminiscent of the Bazooka bubble gum packaging which probably also inspired the logo of that notorious Art Gallery on 76 Grand Street, NYC.

Pete Herbert & Dicky Trisco – Paradise Row Vol.3
Thursday, September 8th, 2016 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Pete Herbert & Dicky Trisco – Paradise Row Vol.3

Image: 1606294 After a Summer of trips around the globe to play at Croatian festivals, Balinese beach clubs and a variety of underground establishments, Pedro & Dicky deliver the latest episode on their own Paradise Row label.

The EP fuses their love of Disco, House, Italo and Balearic sounds and is a proper party-starting, medium sized player with tracks that are ripe for most dance floor moments and occasions.

The up-for-it, head-nodding arps and discoid thrills of ‘Dance To Love’ get things going in style.
While the chunky House and Barbarellas inspired vibes of ‘I Think I Can Feel Something’ will really get you moving. This one has been going down a storm in the clubs this Summer.

And finally, things come to a grande finale with ‘Perfecto’, which cooks up Italian influences with Ma Foombey style longings to make for a sound as Balearic as large hierbas on ice.

Cobby & Malinder – Tumblefish EP
Thursday, March 24th, 2016 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Cobby & Malinder – Tumblefish EP

Image: 1603254 After a relatively quiet 2015 which saw Brooklyn’s Throne of Blood release the third volume in the Moon Rock ambient series and a handful of singles from Man Power, Jimi After, and Vito & Druzzi, things are already heating up for 2016.

Kicking things off is a really special collaborative 12” from Steve Cobby, the Hull-based producer best known as one half of downbeat legends Fila Brazillia, and Stephen Mallinder of Cabaret Voltaire fame. Throne of Blood is honored to be working with such towering influences, and excited to be bringing some truly special recordings to life.

The proceedings kick off with “Tumblefish” a cosmic soup of hangdrum samples and breakbeats backed by an acidic bassline built for Balearic b-boys. Mark E’s remix strips the proceedings back, morphing “Tumblefish” into a grinding chugger that’s equal parts techno and house.

Things get really interesting on the B side with Cobby and Mal versioning one of the holiest of holy grails in leftfield music, “Vitamin C” by krautrock legends, Can. Drenched in echo and anchored by a mechanically teutonic beat, their version swaps the moody desperation of the original for a dislocated mechanical swagger. TOB label manager Max Pask’s dub raises the tempo and retrofits “Vitamin C” for maximum dancefloor impact. Closing things out, Correspondant/Voyeurhythm hotshot Man Power returns to TOB with a driving remix layering drum machines, shambolic synths, and a driving bassline to close out the ep.

Kylie Minogue – Kylie Minogue
Friday, January 1st, 2016 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Kylie Minogue – Kylie Minogue

Image: 1601134 Originally released in 1994, Kylie Minogue represents the fun 90s pop acts had in absorbing an increasingly diverse range of influences – from house and ambient to Balearic and R&B. Beloved by perfect pop fans, this is Kylie’s most sought-after record, finding a decent copy on vinyl will set you back well over £150.

Signposting another left turn in Be With’s ‘baffling roster’ (Pitchfork), we proudly present this album’s first ever vinyl reissue as a deluxe special edition, limited to just 500 copies. Righting the wrongs of its initial release, the album now stretches out over two pieces of 180gram vinyl and is presented in a sumptuous gatefold jacket, allowing the iconic Rankin portraits of an empowered, self-aware pop star room to breathe.

After phenomenal chart success in the late 80s and early 90s with the PWL hit factory, Kylie desired greater artistic freedom and critical credibility. Her move to dance music label deConstruction, and its commendable hands-off attitude, marked this profound shift In thinking and enabled the singer to make the album she really wanted. Indeed, Kylie Minogue is a sophisticated collection of stylish songs that elegantly reference new jack swing, R&B ballads, ambient pop and piano house.

String-drenched epic “Confide In Me” (produced by acclaimed dance duo Brothers in Rhythm) confidently sets the tone whilst “Surrender”, a seductive sunset slow jam, unwittingly anticipates the voguish Balearic pop of the past decade. Jazzy pop-R&B groovers keep things moving but it’s the masterful “Put Yourself In My Place” – in all its understated melancholy – that stops listeners in their tracks. Widely regarded as her finest downtempo moment, the monster single recalled late 80s American R&B but, having never received a proper vinyl release, its inclusion here is worth the price of admission alone.

Further orchestral ballads, subtly cinematic pieces and minor key house tracks (with the involvement of the Pet Shop Boys and acid house stalwarts Farley & Heller) serve to complete an assured collage of accessible yet resolutely eclectic ‘perfect pop’.

Over 20 years on, Kylie Minogue remains quietly revered and relevant today. Just check fellow Aussies Tame Impala’s recent cover of pop juggernaut ‘Confide In Me’.

Various – The Very Polish Cut-Outs Vol.5
Saturday, November 7th, 2015 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Various – The Very Polish Cut-Outs Vol.5

Image: 1600794 All good things come to an end, and The Very Polish Cut-Outs is no different. The fifth sampler will be the last in the much loved & long running series. For the farewell record, label boss Zambon has selected five unique reworks from top producers from Poland and beyond.

Side A is aimed at the dancefloor. ‘KIEDY BYLEM MALYM CHLOPCEM’ was the biggest hit in the long career of Tadeusz Nalepa, the king of Polish blues. The irresistible, smooth guitar groove is combined with conscious lyrics about different views of what’s important at different stages of life, served in the form of a conversation between father and son.
Miod crew transform this beautiful song into peak-time killer, tailored exactly for the needs of a modern dancefloor.

Moscow’s man of the moment Beard In Dust edits ‘BIALA SOWA, BIALA DAMA, BIALY KRUK’ by Kram into a flawless disco funk bomb, fuelled by cheesy synth action. A slice of Eastern European B-Boy disco breaks.

Side B brings more ethereal and psychedelic flavours to the table. ‘NA KOLANA PASTUSZKOWIE’ comes from Laboratorium, Poland’s answer to Weather Report. Their unique take on fusion is remixed here by Daniel Drumz, one of the heroes of Polish hiphop & beat scene. This longtime turntablist leaves his rap roots and travels to the psychedelic coast to bring you an amazing piece of Baltic Beat.

Last two tracks are chopped and looped by Australian hero Carpentaria in a truly Balearic fashion. ‘ZA OSTATNI GROSZ’ by Budka Suflera charms the listener with dripping pianos and a misty, endless soft rock groove (with added swirling synths played here by Brennan Green himself), while ZACZAROWNE MIASTO by Kombi is a dark, cinematic piece of slow synth pop.

It may be the end, but The Very Polish Cut-Outs finishes off in fine style.

TRACK LISTING:

A1. MIOD – KIEDY BYLEM MALYM CHLOPCEM
A2. BEARD IN DUST – BIALA SOWA, BIALA DAMA, BIALY KRUK

A Sagittariun – No Spring Chicken EP
Tuesday, February 3rd, 2015 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on A Sagittariun – No Spring Chicken EP

Image: 1595128 Man of mystery, A Sagittariun , is back on Hype LTD with the new No Spring Chicken EP.

A1. 3-4-3 (Original Mix)
B1. 3-4-3 (Rolando Remix)
B2. Delta House (Original Mix)

Man of mystery, A Sagittariun, may not be the first, nor the last, in a long lineage of techno producers to go undercover and under a veil of anonymity, but the West Country artist doesn’t use this cloak to stir up any hype, quite simply the music does the talking, and since 2011, has released a breath taking selection of music on his own Elastic Dreams label.

And so the ‘archer’ lands on HypeLTD after only one other foray onto labels other than his own (2014’s ‘Lost Cities’ EP for secretsundaze). The EP’s centerpiece is “3-4-3”, coming here in two versions. The Original Mix combines the usual Sagittariun heady mix of driving breakbeat techno and warm synth modulations but in a more unsettling and distorted setting. Sounding like some long lost European techno record from the vaults of R&S Records or similar, the track takes no prisoners, its melody line designed to melt a few braincells whilst the beats clatter way with aplomb.

Former Underground Resistance soldier, Rolando, steps up on the first of the remixes of “3-4-3”, keeping it on the straight and narrow with an intense and to the point version. His recent output on Ostgut Ton and his own R3 label has highly impressed, and his remix here continues with this quality in his productions. Hypercolour boss, Alex Jones, weighs in with a heavyweight and pounding chugger, it’s bassline suitably wigging out over the post-industrial clang of the sturdy beats.

“Delta House” is quite a different proposition altogether. A low-slung and funky slice of New Beat, it’s part industrial funk, part Balearic pop, with it’s breathy female vox and wandering bassline really making this a stand out track from A Sagittariun. Loaded with melody, subtle acid and cute saxophone blasts, this track further opens up the breadth of style that A Sagittariun ascribes to. Available from 06.03.2015

Onyricon – Sweet Dream
Friday, September 19th, 2014 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Onyricon – Sweet Dream

Image: 1591693 Those generous chaps at Aficionado return with their tenth release, eager to extend your Summer with a 12″ ticket to the sun and fun of La Isla Blanca.
As you should know by now, Messrs Moon and Boardman don’t do things by halves so rather than hastily booking a scattering of seats on an Easyjet airbus, they’ve plumped for the luxury and bliss of Club Class on Onyricon air, the airline that gives you Mas y mas.

This pan European consortium, headed up by the production duo of Leo Mas and Fabrice (ably assisted by the writing talent of Italo legends Rago and Farina) formed with the aim of creating the perfect flying experience and their triumph is presented in all its transcendent beauty on the opening track.

The On Air mix of ‘Sweet Dream’ coasts smoothly through the upper atmosphere on a bed of blurred new age pads and celestial vocals, pure as the sunlit white of the clouds below, tranquil as the heavens above.

As you hit the strip of the Aeroport D’Eivissa, the hedonistic pulse of the Island begins to course through your body, driven by the hypnotic tribalism of Leo & Fabrice’s Balearic Militant mix and carrying you back to an unremembered youth of faded club flyers and open air parties.

You’re in the mood for a dance and man of the moment Andras Fox is on hand to take your bags and show you a good time. The Antipodean tape peddler brings a dash of drum track exotica to his remix, leaving the Roland out in the sun long enough to fully harness the lilting patter of island rhythms. The fretless bassline is a white walled penthouse but no pavement as the Fox provides executive Balearic, free from the dust of Ibizan streets. As you step into the realm of the senses mystical melodies, spiritual vocals and circular bassline swirl around that rattling rhythm like a Nu Groove B-side lost in Rheji’s luggage back in ’89.

After all your dancefloor exertion, it’s recommended you cool off with a dip in the pool to the echo drenched swelter of B2’s Sun mix. The sweet fragrance of dub and shimmer of sun cream on the water are all you remember as you drift gently away

Thursday, August 28th, 2014 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Various – Tomorrow’s Achievements: Parry Music Library 76-86

Image: 1576792 This is Tomorrow’s Achievements, an exclusive Public Information foray into the Canadian Library institution, Parry Music. With access granted by founder John Parry Public Information have selected twenty-five of their favourite electronic tracks, an early autumn heat-wave of perfect melody. Parry Music was founded in Toronto, 1974 by John Parry and Chris Stone. John was formerly a manager of revered UK library Chappell Music and Chris was a Canadian music consultant, both brought some familiar musicians to the table.

Johnny Hawksworth, Robin Artus, Paul Kass, Nino Nardini (close allies with Roger Roger) are on board Tomorrow’s Achievements. At the same time, a little known Canadian Library musician who features heavily, Harry Forbes. Forbes is the real driving force of P.I.’s Parry-Love, a master of imminent, hummable melody, sublime synth miniatures baked in sweetness.

Elsewhere, the other players in proto-Balearic house, groovy electronic disco, spooked choral drone, freaked-modular scorch and weird Radiophonic bleep. These are the soundtracks to movie car chases never known, lost kids TV shows never realized, radio-ads never broadcast – music to make your ears sing for more.

A compliation put together piece by piece at Public Information HQ, lovingly re-mastered by Rashad at D&M, with artwork by Jack Featherstone.

Barnaby Bruce – This Time Around
Friday, August 1st, 2014 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Barnaby Bruce – This Time Around

Image: 1590817 The first release on new Tokyo and Hong Kong-based label Palms & Charms delivers a Balearic reflection on the paths of our lives through space and time.

The title track sets a tropical scene, with a Riviera feel. Consider questions such as “why are we here?” and “what are the reasons for human behaviour?” whilst drinking your favourite cocktail, preferably with a carefully selected combination of just a few ingredients.

On side B ‘Feel the Wheel’ is an instrumental rumination on the experience of work. The staccato sounds of Afro-Cuban bata punctuate a slice of understated synth-funk with an essence of boogie, as you contemplate the position of mankind on Earth, the only creatures on the planet capable of real self-determination and active endeavour.

MAX ESSA (Jansen Jardin, Is It Balearic?) offers up two complimentary mixes of ‘This Time Around’.

The ‘Heaven in the Afternoon Dub Mix’ brings a sophisticated post-prandial-dub feel to proceedings. Sip on a rum and ice and gravitate towards the dance floor, seduced by the interplay between the guitar, agogo and the bassline.

Meanwhile the ‘Euro Terrace Mix’ leads your mind back to pondering the big question “‘where else could we go now?” even as the stabs and subtle arpeggios drive your feet into a reverie of their own. The night is young and the terrace is becoming busy…

Joey Negro – Italo House (Part 1)
Thursday, July 3rd, 2014 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Joey Negro – Italo House (Part 1)

Image: 1589187 Joey Negro steps up to the plate with his new collection of Italo House. A personal selection of the deeper side of Italian house music.

Following on from the phenomenal success of the recent “Remixed With Love” compilation plus more Joey Negro compiled
albums including “GoGo Get Down”, “Backstreet Brit Funk”, “Destination Boogie” and the ever-popular Soul of Disco series Z
Records continues to release high quality compilations filled with lesser known disco, funk and boogie.
Now it’s the turn of “Italo House” to get the JN selection treatment with over 20 tracks hand picked from the late 80’s and
early 90’s covering a lot of the deeper classics and some lesser known releases from a golden era of Italian dance music.
The late 80s were undoubtedly a golden era for dance music. A time which saw the birth of many genres and sub genres –
from acid house to hardcore to Balearic – and of course Italo house. If you ask Jo Raver to name an Italo house track, they’d
probably come back with Blackbox, Jinny, Fiddlefatti or one of many big piano tune. At the same time there was another
equally distinctive sound coming out of Italy- a warmer, deeper, more emotional style which didn’t yield any commercial
hits. The sound was more jazzy and soulful with syncopated percussion, dreamy pads and, though piano was often used, it
wasn’t in the obviously programmed, big breakdown style which became a cliché of the Italo house genre. This more
underground side of Italo was closer to the original American house sound- but still retained a very European flavour.
In common with other Z compilations which have featured Britfunk and GoGo, this album was an important release for me.
Important because I love a lot of the records, many of which have been largely forgotten about, but also because there
really was a unique sound coming out of Italy, spread across many labels and involving numerous producers. As a result, it
has never really been fully showcased like this before. I’m glad this album exists for other people to discover or re-discover
the deeper side of Italo house. Joey Negro – Feb 2014

Friday, June 20th, 2014 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Joan Bibiloni – El Sur

Image: 1589595 Staying on the Mediterranean coast for their third release, Music From Memory this time shift their attention to the work of Mallorcan musician Joan Bibiloni. TIP!
Primarily a guitarist, Bibiloni was creating music at an early age, releasing his first single at the tender age of 15. In his twenties he formed Spanish progrock outfits Zebra and Euterpe where he would meet Pepe Milan, the two of them becoming the bluesy folk duo ‘Milan & Bibiloni’. Bibiloni himself would later go on to play with a number of luminary musicians such as Larry Coryell, Daevid Allen and John Cage to name but a few.

In 1982 Bibiloni set up his own label Blau in order to highlight the muchoverlooked work of musicians not only on his home island of Mallorca but across the Balearic Islands. In doing so he created a platform not only for
local talent but also for his own music to breathe a new life, much influenced by the landscape and life that surrounds the islands.

Whilst Bibiloni’s first solo releases on his Blau imprint have stronger echoes of contemporary Jazz fusion of the time, it is on the album known as ‘Una Vida Llarga I Tranquila’ where Bibiloni really began to experiment with new sounds
and technologies, fusing tape loops, drum computers and synthesizers.

Taking these more electronic infused works as a departure point for the compilation and drawing on material from across his following five albums, ‘El Sur’ sets out to highlight Joan Bibiloni’s unique ambient fusion and sun-drenched Mediterranean beach boogie.

Elkin & Nelson – Jibaro
Monday, January 6th, 2014 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Elkin & Nelson – Jibaro

Image: 1586278 No introduction is really needed for the massive Balearic anthem ‘Jibaro’. Elkin & Nelson’s scorching Latin disco classic hit big throughout Spain, South America and NYC’s underground club scene in 1979 when this now rare and hard-to-find disco 12″ version originally dropped, but it gained its real cult status after being picked up and championed up by the likes of Rampling, Oakenfold et al who who fell in love it after hearing it played by the legendary DJ Afredo at Ibiza’s Amnesia club. Instantly recognisable and supremely dancable, this is one of the true heavyweights of the Balearic scene – and a must have for any serious record collection.

Nev Cottee – Oslo
Thursday, November 21st, 2013 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Nev Cottee – Oslo

Image: 1585462 Aficionado reach their sixth release in luxurious style with a couple of gorgeous numbers cherry picked from Mancunian songwriter Nev Cottee’s forthcoming LP, accompanied by two winning remixes.

Within the Nilsson-esque melodies of “Oslo”, Cottee has buried a lifetime of emotion, balancing melancholy and joy perfectly.
His words conjure the image of lost love remembered and fleeting nostalgia as those heartbreaking strings soar along.

This is perfect Balearic for the winter seasons.

Mancunian tape enthusiast Ruf Dug has been turning heads all over the world in the past few months with his own unique strain of 80s soul, dub and yacht boogie.
His remix flies first class from Oslo to the Tropics, adding a lilting rhythm and a heavy Roland snare to create a digital dub supreme. As the track blossoms, the tape delay is so warm you can almost smell what Ruffy’s been smoking and it has much the same effect.

On the flip, “The Sun Also Rises” is a lush instrumental interlude from Cottee, channeling Byrdsian jangle, music box melody and swooning strings laced with the woozy psychedelia that producers Mason Neely & Carwyn Ellis (Colorama) have made their own.
Cottee’s delicate guitar sits perfectly within the more esoteric instrumentation, packing a real emotional punch.

Miles Copeland of The Superimposers dons his Wonderful Sound moniker to close out the EP with a gorgeous coastal rework of “The Sun Also Rises” that’s as fresh as sea air.
Miles adds a backbeat groove and his trademark sea organ to remould Nev’s instrumental as a Balearic sea shanty that’s as English as fish and chips.

Warm, unusual, and with just a touch of the Penguin Cafe Orchestra about it, this is a Nado classic in the making. Available from 01.11.2013

Image: 1580512 IS IT BALEARIC return with an absolutely superb EP from new signings Saint Petersburg Disco Spin Club.

SPDSC are a collective of live musicians and DJ’s from Russia. This is their debut release for IIB, but a handful of tracks on labels like Glenview & Teardrop have made serious waves – skillfully combining live Disco musicianship with the DJ sensibilities which shape their sound. From club friendly and hooky dancefloor tracks to blissfully executed downtempo jams
All pulled off with a loose but pin sharp production style that really makes them stand out.

‘I Never Leave You’ leads on the A Side, a steadily assembled sunset workout, with brass elements defining the groove.

‘Marwencol’ manages to deftly pull off a Balearic Wu-Tang move, whil e’Love Spin’ is a beautifully lolloping beach bar jam, which comes complete with a very dubbed-out dub version too

Top drawer music from an ever dependable label. Available from 14.06.2013

Various – The Very Polish Cut-Outs Vol.1
Thursday, May 23rd, 2013 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Various – The Very Polish Cut-Outs Vol.1

Image: 1579881 After storming the charts in 2012 with mysterious 7″ championed by Todd Terje & many others, Zambon & Kapsa – the guys from The Very Polish Cut Outs are back with more goods! Following the successful debut, they bring us a delicious 12″ release with 4 amazing edits based on obscure Polish records from the 80’s.

A Side is curated by Ptaki, a mysterious duo hailing from Warsaw. Ptaki (which means birds in Polish) fly high and want to keep their true identity under the radar. Nevertheless, they serve two amazing cuts here, both based on obscure Polish jazzfunk. ‘Krystyna’ is the choice cut, with its infectious vocal hook and irresistible groove. ‘Marek’ is a piece of wonderful Balearic slow house with rich rhythm and crazy synth action in the middle.

B Side comes from Maciek Sienkiewicz, one of the finest purveyors of Balearic grooves in Poland. Two tracks served here wouldn’t sound out of place in Alfredo’s set. ‘Song For Mohindar’ is the lead track, with its ethereal new-age atmospherics and exotic instrumentation. ‘Syntetyczna Kobieta Lux’ is an electronic burner that you may (or may not) know from last year’s TVPC Beats In Space show.

All tracks were carefully mastered and pressed on fat & loud 12inch to maximize your pleasure of discovering forgotten gems from Poland’s rich musical past.

This record comes in a lush sleeve, designed by one of the most talented young Polish designers.

Already gaining support from Eddie C, Soft Rocks, Coyote, Phil South, The Project Club, Rune Lindbaek, Sleazy Beats..to name a few… What’s not to love?
