China

china 1China – China

5.53 a.m. Despite the overwhelming fatigue sleeping is out of question. Sunrise in May is simply too precious to be missed. Perhaps gentle airy cigarettes on the balcony? China 12″ roaring at 108 bpm? Of course not. The people next door would probably mind. Be quiet. Don’t smoke. The downsides of overtly safe urban housing. Would it be too late for a drive to archipelago to find abandoned buildings?

Müzik ve Ben

evren

Claire Evren – Müzik ve Ben

To my surprise Vomatron didn’t post this one. So let me introduce this Turkish/French disco wonder from ’81. To my knowledge Claire was a Turkish singer living in France. The track is produced in France, but only released on the turkish Öncü label (the one that looks like a redbull logo). The lyrics are in french except the chorus which is turkish. What a blend!

Love will come

love

Ricchi e Poveri – Love will come

I guess Ricchi e Poveri is among the very famous italian pop bands, but my only relation to them has been the Jungle Beat track from their 1980 Album. This one is 4 years earlier. A great mixture of hippie vibes and boogie grooves. This is probably best served at some small outdoor festival in the summertime, but hey; play it in a dark club in the winter and I promise you’ll get me on the floor.

Here’s another proof that good music doesn’t have to cost you anything. These 2 tracks are from 2 different dutch 7inches. Great vibes and synth work all the way through! Sorry for the crackling quality on Asphalt. I guess i need another one. maybe 10!

Jet Set Lady

It’s summertime, and many of you have of course already booked your tickets for this years cruiseship vacation. Just make sure you don’t read too many of the stories on Kendall Carver’s website, or watch the movie Death Cruise from 1974, then you’ll be fine. Instead, get warmed up with this one, produced by the crew behind Jumbo.

Fun, Fun, Fun

Billede (14)

At first it sounds like your ordinary, run of the mill US funky stuff, but a closer listen will reveal many original and freakish elements, as well as some undefinable European accent.

Aqua

more Aqua

Let us remember that the ocean covers 71 percent of the Earth’s surface and contains 97 percent of the planet’s water, yet more than 95 percent of the underwater world remains unexplored.

Deep sea expeditions have discovered mysterious objects of unknown origin, as well as entire jungles and huge canyons reaching to uncharted depths.

Here’s music from Edgar Froese’s Aqua, among other sounds of similar submerged nature. Beats, primal rhythms and whispers from the unknown.

We are 30 meters deep, then 60 meters –

El Verano

2936196237

Guess what? It’s another one of those records that you’ve tossed aside countless times, while digging at flea markets. With one of the worst band names ever, you are once more forgiven for doing so. But this one is a pretty serious jam and can be picked up for a few cents, just about anytime you feel like it.
