Guest mix: Geoffrey LaRue

DETROIT, the home of General Motors, Ford and Chrysler, the birthplace of Motown and techno. Unexpectedly there’s dark and dangerous disco throbbing there too, as can be heard in this  mix from Detroit dj Geoffrey LaRue. Now, strip to your underwear and take a trip to (Ho)Motor City.

Sodom

Reinhard Lakomy – Sodom

The Sodomites were destroyed for wickedness which had prompted the Lord to send Angels to the city to investigate, and because the people of Sodom had tried to rape the investigating Angels many times, and because the men of Sodom had tried to engage in homosexual intercourse with the Angels 471 times, and because of inhospitable treatment of visitors sent from the Lord.

Dicotyledon

Dicotyledon – Discolioze

One of the tracks of the season for me, a kind of a study or a medical report illuminating the range of movement in a series of joints in the human body. With additional passages of sound after the title music.

Oliver Robotron

space-jogging

Misha Panfilov Sound Combo – Oliver Robotron

Chase jazz, deep space mysticism, desert disco and sounds made by something in high heels sashaying up from the vaults of Cinecittá – Misha Panfilov Sound Combo’s latest seven combines all that without missing a beat. This is one of those rare records with both sides ready to go down a storm in a dark basement as well as by the pool at sunset. In other words, a perfect Overfitting Disco package.

Space Jogging has sharp electronic motifs that squirm around a huge bassline and fat beats but as always, we must look closely at the b-side. Oliver Robotron is a more detailed walk thru what seems like the neon lit back alleys Soho during the Cool Britannia era when it was still about proper old school clubbing. Here especially, Mr Panfilov and his gang  excel with ultrasharp playing and astute arrangements, keeping the incredients fresh with personal touches whilst looking towards the future.

Recorded in Estonia in 2016, out By Funk Night Records of Detroit.

St John’s Ensemble – St John’s Cosmic Concerto

Heroic space themes from the USSR, from an unidentified album made in 1982. The lp has a generic sleeve with pictures of yellow flowers, no texts of any kind. Track number 3 has an intro apparently lifted off the St Johns tune from 1979.

BB – Old Ufo

Directors of interstellar message composition at the SETI agree that mathematic patterns and music might present the most universal way of communicating with aliens. Experts say space disco compositions would be most appealing because aliens are thought to listen to music or view art in a complex way, with interplay between analytical and affective music reception.

Feast For Flies

national

Mikko Saarela – Kärpästen Juhlat (Feast for Flies)

Here’s a poke in the ribs for those waving flags in squares in patriotic frenzy, ready to fight against immigrants, the EU or whatever they currently hate. Of course the 1981 track gets it’s message across only to the very small percentage of the world’s population who understand the Finnish language but trust me, we got enormous amounts of morons here who should give it a listen. – not a bad dance track in any case.

Persigueme

Lola Martinez – Persigueme

Vamos a la discoteca con senorita Martinez, con los sintetizadors, con un ritmo mundial! A slightly slower version of the Amanda Lear classic has all the right noises. Big thanks to Arnie’s Love for the copy.
