Scoretrack

mspSiegi Gruber – Scoretrack

What are the odds of finding something this weird from a Finnish flea? Kudos to DJ Piitu for his amazing digging skills and unselfish friendliness handing me this cosmic gem originating from Austria. Most perfect soundscape for fine-tuning the moods for things to come later in the night or those peak moments of slow motion disco.

Heart Beat

135502-japanese-sunset

Fumio Miyashita – Heart Beat

Japanese Fumio Miyashita have made quite a lot ambient new age records in the 80s. I’m not too familiar with these but on the Earth LP there’s some really good cosmic downtempo tunes. Heart Beat is at the moment my favourite, but it can change. quality record!

Elleorde: Black Talon

Requiescant_JapanesePoster

Elleorde – Black Talon

Finally it’s here, a new record by the cosmic force behind Den Haan’s epic Gods From Outer Space album, and it’s a cause for celebration. The familiar dynamics are intact and the tone is as hedonistic as ever but the music does not loop back on itself. Strides are taken toward a new destination, somewhere resembling the Almerian region in Spain where the legendary spaghetti westerns were shot.

Three of the four tracks on my demo pressing ascend to frenzied, laser synth peaks with rolling thunder basslines, haunting melodies, moody whistling sounds and all around weirdness and toughness. Then there’s one mellow tune that pours dark, delicious tasting liquids over your naked body as you squirm with pleasure. Everything you hear presents a full manifestation of carefully constructed ideas and is executed with technical four-on-the-floor finesse.

Here’s a taster of the stuff. You’ll want it all, obviously. It’ll be available soon.

A Few More For The Road

moreroadNights are gradually getting darker and the nightly trips to the nearest lakes feel much more dreamy. My favourite swimming spot is located about one hour drive from Turku. The road includes a short highway passage and twisty floating roads in the forest. Here are a few grooves tested on those roads. Some already approved on the dance floor too.

Charlie Hillson – Disco Flight 905

Krackers – Machines

A Band Called “O” – Coasting

TCP – Oasis

Chaos

paris chaosQuartz – Chaos

One of those all too common disco tracks everyone has and that’s why I’ve never dared to play it in public. Kinda sad thinking how good it sounds hearing it over and over again while watching rain dancing on my windowsill. Might sound the part at the parties on 120 db at 6.17 a.m. In the picture something horribly chaotic, but disturbingly peaceful at the same time. Library books floating on the streets of Paris after the catastrophic floods in 1910.

California Dreaming

california dreaming pictureDenial – California Dreaming

I’ll be spinning vinyls at the 4th of June at my favourite spot in the universe – the Uus Õu garden in Tartu, Estonia and later in the night at the vibrant Genialistide Klubi. Even if everything is most likely going to be totally awesome all the time with happy people everywhere, maybe it’s still ok to play some melancholic records? In the picture California fashions of 1967.

Escape

Magnetic System – Escape

Bixio-Frizzi-Tempera ost 45 sounds fast and furious even when pitched down a lot. Godzilla from the a-side has been one of my all time faves ever since it was featured here back in 2009.
