Heavy Rotation

fr01hr-986816463636836

Albion – Cosmic Trip

Albion – The Next World

spAceLex – Byzantion

Dea – Black Wizard

Tasty and essential spacey re-edits. The 12”, Heavy Rotation, is available in every store where good music is for sale.

I’ve tried hard to find out what the original samples are, but it still eludes me (except Black Wizard, I think I’ve spotted this one.) These are more than obscure tracks, it’s pure dark matter here.

Thanks to SpAceLex, as always.

Hana + Dana + ORM – Autumn Leaves (Okay Edit) (1982/2010) (± 7’30”, VBR max, right click to save)

The ORM duo (Petr and Pavel are not brothers, despite what most people say) also did that. According to their biography, they now own a psytrance (sic!) record label, funny.

Pocket Angel Leftside Wobble

lwaimp-5653315

No real news here, just a very fine edit by the amazing Leftside Wobble that deserves a big nod IMHO.

[soundcloud]http://soundcloud.com/leftside-wobble/pocket-angel-stripped-edit[/soundcloud]

Change was already minimal disco, it’s even more minimal, but almost house, and with mucho gusto for sure.

From the Soundcloud page:

Something that’s forthcoming. This ones an unashamed screamer (featuring a massive Jocelyn Brown chorus), reworked from the Change track, Angel In My Pocket. It’s also the first Leftside Wobble collaboration, (done with Guy Williams, one of DJ’s behind the Black Rabbit and Reverso parties).

Likely to do some other mixes on this too. Jx

It’s been released on vinyl since then.

Concertmate Remix

Alan1 – Concertmate (Bobermann Remix) (2010)

It’s been a very, very long time since I posted something new here (hey, it’s other blogs’ duty after all) but I really love this one and I couldn’t help it in the end. The remix is signed by one half of The Bloody Beetroots.

Digitally available everywhere since today.

I’m Ready Edit

kar99919-9117681168788

Ken Adhitya – Ready (2010)

Samples the seminal Kano – I’m Ready (1980.) Pretty well balanced IMO and full of all the current tricks and sound manipulations one would expect from a 2010 production. Check out his other edits.

Hold-Up

abhu6568681617681-581617681-864736

Alain Band/Hot City Simphony – Hold Up (1977)

The B side of the Alain Band 7” record features a conventional piece of instrumental disco, with drums and horns.

Louis Chedid, the composer, remade Hold Up in 1984, but it’s honestly not as good as the original one. A much better remake was recently done from samples off this 1984 track by the great LoSoul:

Louis Chedid – Hold Up (LoSoul Re-Edit) (2010)

It also appears that a very first version of this tune exists, dating back from 1974: I really don’t know whether it’s the same as the 1977 one.

On A Day Like Today

42220056573511431573.jpg

Gichy Dan’s Beachwood #9 – On A Day Like Today (Todd Terje Re-Kutt) (1979/2007)

Just for info: Bob Sinclar has recently released a cover version of this magic tune from August Darnell. Or how to ruin a great idea when the wrong person executes it. At the opposite, Todd Terje knows the job, as usual.

I’m An Indian Too

r-101213-1215099619.jpeg

 Don Armando – I’m an Indian Too (1979)
(Listen to the full track)

This enjoyable and funny song appears on Don Armando’s Second Avenue Rhumba Band LP.

Andy Hernandez (producer) alias Coati Mundi, already met Don Armando (percussionnist and vocalist) before with Dr. Buzzard’s Original Savannah Band.

While the single’s B-side sounds more funky and very nice too. Listen to “Deputy Of Love”(full track)

Listen also to the song “Goin’ To Showdown” (full track here) featured in the horror movie “Maniac” in 1980.

Cédric Marszewski aka Pilooski aka C. Denner strikes again! one master of dirty edits produced this wicked tune! a long and progressive attack on the beat!

Holy smoking discoballs!!! It’s Patrick Cowley on his sex fuelled organ blasting mighty tunes into Michele’s Disco Dance. Somewhere halfway the track it turns into hardcore psychedelic disco… Dance, dance, disco dance!
