As usual on this great compilation from Leitmotiv; on A-side you can find the founding members of this French label (Ido, Lab Insect & Mannix "E" Walter), remixed by confirmed artists (David Carretta & Tobias Schmidt) on B-side. Even if the 2 remixed tracks are the highlights of this record (especialy the Carretta one, which is a cover of Le Syndicat Electronique "The Man Who Killed The Beat" track..). "War Off" from Mannix is one of the rare hard techno track that can mixed romantism & post-apocalyptic moods. For "Relapse Kills " Lab Insect created a deep techno track.. really smooth. All in all, talented artists for a rich plate ;)

Solid cover versions of works of the great John Capenter ! Things open up with Architeqs take on the John Carpenter killer-car thriller theme "Christine". The Scotsman using moody analog synth pads, menacing effects and some fine drumming to maximum effect. Next up, Slovenian Sare Havlicek synths-up "Pork Chop Express" one of the choice tracks from 1986's "Big Trouble In China". Big pads, big riffs and big oscillators all the way. Belgian King Dj goes for the jugular-catchy lead line of 1981's "Escape From New York". The most Italian of producer we know : Bottin, also adds his italo sheen to proceedings. Great record ;)

binary operations / 12"

5 artists drop a track each on the latest 12" from the aptly titled Electrolab label, Diplomat & Skunk, AMR, Laite, Datec and Gab.Gato all tread the electro floorboards in style. With Laite dropping the ultra Detroit style "F**kfaced Robots" with huge strings and arpeggiators and a dash of vocoder to boot behind the furious 808 programming, also check Diplomat & Skunk’s "One Of The Crew" for a 2-step bassline treat with melodic analogue synths and solid electro beats dropping around the swooping bass synths, fans of Tim Wright take note. But the stand out comes from AMR with their homage to Detroit, sounding inspired by early Cybotron and Derrick May with lo-fi beats backed by early 303 sounds, large styles. Ace...

attractive! too / 7"

After the 1st release by The Phone, we are now being served a mini compilation featuring 4 projects. A1 is Poème Electronique with "Fragile (Original)", one of the super hits which was already released on the "The Echoes Fade" album, but here presented in an even earlier and rougher version. A2 is Treeline, a duo comprising Steve Lippert (boss of Attractive!) & Clive Weston who serve "It’s No Good Trying To Reason With Me", an experimental piece of minimal music. B1 is Complicated Memories, that is Marc Schaffer from Anna Logue Records; "Remember (You & I)" is actually a demo track originally recorded for Twins Natalia and was eventually released as "When We Were Young" on a 7" on Anna Logue Records. This track comes along as a very rough and yet beautiful and melodic minimal electronics pop piece. B2 is by Jonni Mogul’s project The Phone that brings us the "White Noise Symphony", a track that is paying some homage to Kraftwerk with a lovely synthetic percussion sent through a flanger thus referring to "T.E.E.", plus analogue synthesisers and vocoders, odd organ sounds, etc. Comes in hand numbered 8 pages fold out poster with band pics and infos. Lovely vinyl mini compilation full of analogue electronics... 7”EPs are new and limited to 300 copies only.

Label : Unrecognized 

vulnerabilities and consequences / 12"

New Canadian label Unrecognized have assembled an allstar electro, electro-pop cast for an excellent 12" which kicks off with old Suction dude Solvent with a slightly acidic and emotional electro cut. Jason Amm always manages to channel soul into his machines and his productions sparkle like crystal. Moving on to Minisystem with some euphoric arpeggiated synths and a deliciously hypnotic groove. Then Ersatz artist Goudron offers up a warm electro-pop number that's somewhere between Kraftwerk and Gary Newman. Lowfish drops a futuristic electro stomper reminding me a little of Legowelt. Beta Evers takes things into deliciously dark synth pop terrain, with eerie sci-fi synths and paranoid vocal. GD Luxxe's track "Cities" is a beautiful dark electro-pop killer track. For fans of Ersatz, Dutch west coast scene, Suction, Skanfrom etc.. "Vulnerabilities & Consequences" is a promising beginning for the label. ;)

milano new wave 1980-83 redux

Label : Spittle Records 

milano new wave 1980-83 redux / LP

Spittle Records turn our attention to under-reported new wave scene of Milan circa 1980-83. With a skillful mastering job from Giovanni Versari, we're presented with 12 tracks from 4 bands who never received the attention they originally sought or deserved due to media and music industry indifference. Stuck outside of the rock and pop centres of London, New York or Berlin these kids simply fulfilled their dreams as best they could, weaving post-punk & new-wave traces gleaned from import records into a slightly distorted mirror image of new-wave. Jeunesse D'Ivoire offer the spindly drum machines and Liz Fraser-esque vox of "A Gift Of Tears" and previously unreleased versions of "Silent Imagery" and the charming New Order alike "Praise". Other side are a moodier post-punk bunch, fronted by the well-studied vocals of Danilo Carnevale and driven by melancholy jangle and live drums. State Of Art are revealed to be an canny hybrid of Talking Heads and ACR funk with defined afro-latin influences, and then there's La Maison. On "Mercedes" they conjure a soundtrack to Kraftwerk kerbcrawling the red light district of Düsseldorf, while "Igloo" comes from a stranger place informed by Devo and NY no-wave. Highly desirable object ! Tip..!

body section / LP

Originally released in 1983,just as the 'new Italian rock' movement was beginning to gain momentum, this compilation reflects the impact of a 'post Joy Division' British new wave on the genre. Divided into 2 sections, the softer blue section and the more electric red section, this compilation presents some of the most eclectic bands of the period, as well as more sophisticated bands. It also marked the baptism of 2 bands (Litfiba & Diaframma) that would become synonymous with 'the future of Italian rock' for the next 10 years. Another collector’s item now repressed ;)

Label : Crème Organization 

a tribute to Robert Moog 2 / 12"

This is the 2nd 12" to bring together some analogue fetishists to vinyl; with Bangkok Impact making waves through a mauled missive entitled "Taming The Taurus". With someone like Robert Moog it would be all too easy for those involved to buckle under his shadow and turn in Xeroxed tributes that did nothing for either his memory or their reputation. Yet all those involved side-step this potential pitfall, with Lowfish's "Membrane Switch" and Luke Eargoggle's "Mind Of A Moog" both marinated in the kind of synth and analogue shenanigans that will have you grinning with chin-stroking delight. Moog music..!

disco italia 12" sampler

7.49€

Artist : Various 

Label : Strut 

disco italia 12" sampler / 12"

Superb compilation with Gepy & Gepy's "African Love Song" is a fine example of euro-funk, and includes some magnificently comical vocals in addition to the splendid strings and brass arrangement. Five Letters' "Tha Kee Tha Tha" makes similarly appealing moves towards classic 70's dancefloor production, but Tullio De Piscopo's "E Fatto E Sorde! E? (Money Money)" is a bit more 80's-themed, featuring big, reverb-heavy snares and nasty sounding retro guitar and keyboard engineering. All part of it's charm though...

play that beat mr. raja #1 - selected oddities from the tamil film industry (1984 - 1991) / LP

"Play That Beat Mr. Raja #1" is the very 1st compilation dedicated to Tamil Recordings in the West. It explores the wild shores of these late 80's Kollywood music productions. With an avalanche of cinematic strings, analog synths, mind-blowing vocal punchlines and drumkit earthquakes mixed with folkloric percussive elements, it reveals the audacity of composers such as Ilayaraja, Shankar Ganesh or Hamsalekha. Covering an impressive range of styles, it features Kamal Hassan's vocoded rap "Vikram Vikram", Shankar Ganesh's disco stomper "Coca Cola", and the irresistible bontempi instrumental "Love Theme", among many other hits. Straddling boundaries between traditional southern Indian identity and digested western influences, these selected oddities remain a lesson of creativity and freedom in the world of soundtracks, with their stunning incorporation of the most typical of 80's tools in a classical context, and a constant love for daring structures and demented arrangements. Wonderful & Crazy !!

Label : Dark Entries 

bay area retrograde (BART) vol 1 / LP

'Bay Area Retrograde (BART) Volume 1' is Dark Entries' 1st compilation of underground music from San Francisco (and the greater Bay Area) in the 80's. Towards the end of the 70's, San Francisco experimental music clashed with the aftermath of punk and gave birth to a vibrant underground scene. By the early to mid 80's the Diy music scene of the Bay Area was a hotbed for experimental and quirky new-wave, post-punk, and synth-pop, quite similar to New York's no-wave scene and Berlin's NDW. This compilation literally connects the (transit) lines between these varied musical offerings and tells the secret story of 11 forgotten Bay Area bands and contains four previously unreleased tracks on vinyl, until now! Superb..

New Minimal Wave compilation with lost tracks from around the world recorded between 1979 to 1985. 'The Hidden Tapes' features rare, unreleased, and licensed tracks from as far as Japan and the former Yugoslavia. Most of the bands on this compilation recorded on 4-track tape in their bedroom studios while two of them went further to collaborate by sending tapes through the mail. The sounds on this record range from raw proto-industrial to naive danceable Belgradian new-wave, to filmic synthesizer music to more complex, vocal-driven melodic synth-pop. Limited edition of 999 numbered copies, pressed on 180 gram vinyl, and housed in heavy printed jacket accompanied by printed inner jacket with photos and info. Repress ;)

Excellent vinyl-only reissue of minimal-synth and pop tracks culled from the collection of Dj Koen van Immerseel. Alain Neffe and Daniel Malempré (aka Subject), open with the dark mittel European synth-funk of "I See You", and Alain Neffe appears again on 2 Bene Gesserit classics from 1982, the dry funk of "American Orphan Girl" and the borderline delirious "Kull Wahad!!!". Vitor Hublot contributes the French-sung synth-pop of "Aller Simple" (1983), and the wiry "Histoire De P'Tite Annick" (1983), and Kaa Antilope features on the melancholy synth-pop of "Island Girl Games" (1988) and the forlorn "Rise Up Helicopter: Like A Bird" (1988). Highly Recommended..!

orgelvärk / 2x12"

Newly remastered vinyl edition of the cult Swedish cassette compilation 'Orgelvärk'. Compilation of Swedish synth-pop, experimental and industrial music representative of the underground tape scene that thrived there in the 80's. Many of the bands didn't quite fit into one particular genre, and most remained unknown. They lived in small villages and were making what can be described as electronic folk music. 'Orgelvärk' was originally compiled and released on cassette in 1986 by Tor Sigvardson, also known for his own musical project 18:e Oktober and cassette label Neuköln. This vinyl edition includes 5 previously unreleased tracks which were submitted to Tor for the original 1986 cassette release but due to space limitations, never made it on there. All 24 songs have been remastered from their original tapes especially for vinyl by Tor himself. Limited edition of 999 hand-numbered copies, double LP pressed on 160gram vinyl and presented in a matte gatefold jacket with a letter from Tor accompanied by further information on the bands. Be fast on this one ;)

danza meccanica - italian synth wave vol.2 1981 - 1987 / LP

2nd volume of the much acclaimed italian new-wave Italian compilation. "Danza Meccanica" is the latest, unmissable chapter in the story of Italian post-punk (the less traditionally rock branch). It outlines the approach taken by 10 more or less unknown groups who all deserve rediscovery and to be remembered alongside luckier outfits. 10 tracks that spell out the manifesto of a scene fascinated by electronic innovation, a scene that used the sounds coming out of English labels like Factory, 4AD and Mute as a reference point. The grey atmospheres and raincoats of a still-divided Berlin, and those of Manchester, which along with Sheffield produced sounds destined to inspire future generations of musicians and producers. Limited edition of 500 copies including 2 inserts. Unmissable !!

non plus ultra 1980-1987 / LP

After a long process of searching, restoring and a careful remastering, we are pleased to present a very carefully selected collection of hard-to-find tracks from the vanguard Spanish techno scene from the 80's. All the material featured on the 'Non Plus Ultra 1980-1987', except for the group from Zaragoza Vam Cyborg, has never been officially released before: most of these tracks should be regarded as demos although some bands had the chance to record them on cassette or reel-to-reel and even in a few cases could have had a limited distribution. This has made it possible for us to recover some of these recordings which we believe should not be lost to oblivion. It's a repertoire of some pioneer groups, which are as unknown as they are interesting, creative, and ahead of their times. After nearly 30 years silence they have stood the test of time and still sound as contemporary as they did then. For the 1st time they will be released in LP format in a limited edition of 525 copies including postcard and compiled dossier with detailed information regarding all the bands featured on the compilation. Great record !

Now they've been remastered from their analog source tapes, brought to you by Veronica Vasicka and Peanut Butter Wolf. Some ot the tracks are highlights of Minimal Wave's recent output and others are glimpses into future releases. Essential Comp' !

frogmania / LP+CD

This strangely festooned LP is the latest compilation from one of Germany's premier purveyors of synth-wave and electro-pop: Plastic Frog Records. Label co-founder Klaus Weinrich, under his K.Rotte alias, opens with the abstract "Frogmania 1" before Kernkrach's Gertrud Stein offers up some choice analogue sounds. Minimal wave veterans Bal Paré dish up a euphoric piece of pop wave, brimming with thick synths. The unmistakable sound of ADN' Crystall is turned down with an instrumental track. Up and coming synthesists dapple the LP. Relative Kalte, Brigade Rosse and Massendefect all give some superb outings. Another novice outfit, Held Der Arbeit, turn out a blinding piece of heavy wave, muscular minimal pop. Im Namen Des Volkes level the playing field with some subdued harmonics before The Rorschach Garden emit a catchy piece of quick paced analogue pop. 'Frogmania' sees heavy hitters of the minimal scene sit side by side with newcomers. Downtrodden wave pulls up a seat next to Amiga inspired electronics-a stunning cross section of a fixating sound. Think along the lines of Kernkrach, Astro Chicken and Minimal Wave. Includes a bonus CD ;)

the end of civilization / LP

Catching the same spirit of labels such as Factory Records / 4AD, the Italian synth wave princess Mushy was asked to create a compilation starting from a tabula rasa. The mission was hard. Following her tastes and heart, she had to select a dozen of new bands from all over the world with unreleased and unique for this project tracks, picking up the title and realizing the graphic design and artwork. The full process of 'The End Of Civilization' took almost 1 year but the result was touching us deep into our soul. Mushy began her career crafting noise bursts and aggressive oblique instrumentals before, in her newest form, blooming into a beautiful, epic and heart-heavy icy synth sound, having both 'Faded Heart' (2011) and 'Breathless' (2012) as album of the week at Rough Trade. 'The End Of Civilization' perfectly represents her double sided synth-wave / kraut-psychedelic soul. Every track she selected for us is an absolute highlight, moving from the analog minimal / cold wave sounds of Police Des Moeurs, ASSS, The Circa Tapes, TEEEL and Rosemary to the tempestuous post punk and psychedelia of Deathday, The Murder Act, Phosphor and The Strange Forces, ending with spectral cold folk of Tablets and The Long Wives. Limited edition of 500 copies on black vinyl !

electric voice compilation / 2x12"

Over the past few years Electric Voice Records has established itself as one of Canada's most forward-thinking and ambitious new labels, releasing a mountain of innovative pop music from an eccentric roster of international bands and artists. The label's grand vision is quite simply to archive the current state of affairs in the underground world of pop music. Although a bold mission, this new compilation makes huge strides towards that aim. Culled from a hopelessly jammed inbox of submissions and requests, these 18 tracks represent some of the finest jams to ever grace the Electric Voice catalogue and offer a cross section of both up and coming and established artists. The label's obsessive attention to quality means that every track is an absolute highlight, but notable contributions include "Dutch Me", a collaboration between cult bedroom wizards R.Stevie Moore & Ariel Pink, and "The Stand", a minimal synth track by 80's no-wave trailblazers Jeff & Jane Hudson. The compilation also includes a chilling track by Australian protopunks HTRK (Hate Rock Trio) which features the band's late friend and producer Rowland S. Howard of The Birthday Party on guitar. But every cut on this double LP is a winner, with new projects like Femminielli, D'Eon, Rape Faction, Soft Metals, Automelodi, Innergaze, Grand Trine, Jef Barbara, and Catbag commanding as much attention as anything else on the album. And of course, the strange, zen-like art of Adam O'Rielly and mastering work of Evan Cardwell transform this collection of great songs into a coherent piece of art. All in all, the brilliance of this compilation testifies to the unstoppable growth and focus of Electric Voice Records.

Label : La Forme Lente 

circuit d'actes 3 / LP

La Forme Lente are stalwarts of contemporary synth-wave. The French label has created a platform for modern artists exploring the sounds of new-wave, minimal synth and analogue pop. One of the pillars of the imprint, one of its main methods to bring new names to eager ears, is their 'Circuit D'Actes' compilations. 5 years after the 1st edition of this series comes the 3rd, 'Circuit D'Actes 3'. As ever La Forme Lente have dug deep and unearthed some new growth talent. Kline Coma Xero introduce themselves with "Left Behind". Beats race as arpeggios rise and fall; scorched undertones meet atonality and tear streaked vocals for a fiery first. The musings of Illustation Sonore follow. Snares are measured as synth layers are built against tinted lyrics. The track mirrors Electro Pop, catchy with a tempered energy. Position Parallèle, of Hau Ruck!, are next with "Pop Mortem". The immediate comparison is Automelodi. It might be the vocals en Francais, but the softness of chord and gentleness of touch throw up further similarities—delicate and fragile electronics. EBM arrives with Post Mortem. "Amorf /verzió/" is a pulsating piece of factory floor soaked angst. Brittle and raw. Shiny Black Mater, formally Le Syndicat Electronique, emit the weird warblings of guitar and psyche machinery. Kline Coma Xero return on the flip for another excellent installment. Grit sits next warmth, angst beside contentedness and caustic before comfort. Illustration Sonore offer "Violence" and EBM class is the product; the vocals are reminiscent of Adult. whilst the synth tones come straight from SPK. Position Parallèle maintain their lightness of touch with "Si Je Te Croise…," an exquisite work of analogue laden pop. By the looks of things, Új Látásmód Fúzió may be the only artist on the compilation who isn’t French. The Eastern European drops heavy chords and guttural vocals for a dark and powerful piece. The dredging lament of “Roses and Ashes” finishes. Shiny Black Mater reinvents Ring-a-Ring-o’-Roses to a pitched back dirge. It can be extremely difficult to see past the smoke of the wave scene. New artists are surreptitious and imprints often clouded, some not even having websites. La Forme Lente, and their Circuit D’Actes compilations, help to navigate the listener towards gleaming aural islands and analogue ambrosia. This third installment has a focus on synthesizers, verging into EBM and Industrial in parts. Ten tracks of addictive, emotional and even grief-laden electronics. A rich and varied assortment of excellence from this French imprint.

the thing from the crypt / LP

'The Thing From The Crypt', is a 16-track compilation of UK Diy/synth/new-wave/post-punk originally released in 1981. Showcasing the thriving post punk sound of Watford, a town in Hertfordshire, England, located 20 minutes northwest of central London. 'The Thing From The Crypt' neither attempts to sell a Wotford sound nor claims to be a comprehensive guide to the area's best beat bands. Like all good compilations, its essence is variety: some tracks will make you come whilst other will make you vomit. This compilation features 8 bands with 2 songs included by each group. Exhibit A were a quartet featuring Mat and Dan from Solid Space and Paul and Andrew from Twelve Cubic Feet. Legendary post-punk act Sad Lovers & Giants make their 1st appearance here as a 5-piece. Mex was the solo project of Paul Mex, the man responsible for this compilation, who went on to produce songs for Wham and George Michael. Gambit Of Shame deliver driving carnival pop and would later work with ex-Soft Machine member, Robert Wyatt on their debut single. Flying Beechcraft serve a slice of wistful Flying Nun indie pop. Image In Ruin bounce between off-kilter NY no-wave skronk and angst. Soft Drinks were a short-lived synth-punk trio featuring the Jon Greville of Rudimentary Peni and Martin Drooper of The Magits who released a 3 song ep on Outer Himmylayan Productions. S-Haters were a deathrock quartet also on the Outer Himmylayan roster who channeled the gothic punk of Pil's "Metal Box" and Joy Division. The vinyl comes housed in a full color printed jacket using the original silk screened artwork. Each LP includes a copy of the 12 page booklet that came with the original pressing. 'The Thing From The Crypt' is more than a local compilation, its the stuff John Peel shows were made of.

electroconvulsive therapy vol.1 / LP

1st compilation LP on Medical Records. A collection of extremely rare and sought after singles and rare tracks. It includes 5 complete A + B sides as well as 2 other tracks that only appeared on obscure compilations in the early 80's. The 1st 2 tracks are by UK's The Electronic Circus. featuring Chris Payne (who also performed synth work on the iconic 'Pleasure Principle' by none other than Gary Numan), the track "Direct Lines" is pure synth-pop perfection. The 2nd featured artist is Boston's Psychic Youth who released one lone 7" in 1982. One of the members, Perry Geyer, was also a founding member of the industrial outfit Manufacture. "Step In Time" and "The Future Is Now" are both dense minimal synth hits that have been remastered by Mr. Geyer himself. Another excruciatingly rare 7" is the self-titled single by UK's Aaah…! "Slip Away" and "Duty Calls" further fit the bill for moody minimal synth-pop greatness. Possibly even more rare is the Shazam single released in 1983 in the UK. Both tracks from the single are included here. The 2 "Wild Card" tracks if you will on the record are "Panic In Your Mind" by N.A. Pop 2000 (UK) and "Maske" by Berliner Strasse (Yugoslavia). Both tracks were plucked from rare wave compilations from the early 80s'. The final single featured is the solo outing by Claude Arto from Mathématiques Modernes. Released in 1981 on Celluloid (France), the 2 tracks drip synthetic bloops and blips while being propelled by rhythmic electro sequences. A perfect closing of each side of the LP. This collection will certainly appeal to fans of the rare minimal synth culture, early stripped down synth-pop, or anybody else who has wanted even one of these tracks on wax again as they are all quite rare. Limited 2017 repress edition on 180gr vinyl !

recuerdos del futuro - un homenaje al sonido de valencia / LP

When, at the end of the 80's, the wave of techno washed over Europe, it not only revolutionized the world of music at large, it also created a multitude of local genres and subgenres, some of which became universal references, while others remain little known to this day. In Valencia, on the Spanish Riviera, one did not only move to the hardcore rhythms of Mákina in those days. As early as 1989, Julio Nexus and his label Megabeat, later joined by German Bou and Nezkabel Records, began to produce the 1st records of what was to become 'El Sonido De Valencia'. Influenced by synth-pop, new-wave and EBM, the sound of Valencia is an unidentified object in the story of techno music: with its baroque synthetic saxophones, its Spanish Twin Peaks samples, its subtle electro beats and its almost kitsch melodies, it has little in common with the 140+ bpm hardcore tekno happening everywhere else at the time. Today, almost 25 years later, it is high time to pay tribute to a mostly forgotten and totally underrated scene, which had nonetheless an everlasting impact on many south-European ravers. High time to remember the future, with 9 contemporary reenactments of the Valencian magic. Limited edition of 250 copies on black vinyl, plus full colour insert ;)
