    For the last 20 years London-based author and party organiser Tim Lawrence has dedicated himself to excavating the history of New York City party culture and bringing some of the most powerful aspects of that culture to London’s dance scene, from where it has ricocheted around the world.

    Having conducted the first and set of major interviews with David Mancuso of the New York City Loft, Lawrence started to host Loft-style Lucky Cloud Sound System parties with David and friends in London in June 2003. In February 2004 he published the first of three published three pioneering histories that have excavated and championed the previously overlooked foundations of contemporary party culture: Love Saves the Day: A History of American Dance Music (1970-79), Hold on to Your Dreams: Arthur Russell and the Downtown Music Scene (1973-92), and Life and Death on the New York Dance Floor (1980-83). Since 2018 Lawrence has hosted and DJed at the community audiophile party "All Our Friends. Paper Magazine describes him as the “reigning authority on the history of dance music in New York”.

    With knowledge to share, and a readership as well as a dance floor to feed, Lawrence released Life and Death on the New York Dance Floor as the debut imprint on Reappearing Records. A year in the making, a compilation featuring rare and iconic tracks that appear in his much-loved and heavily-thumbed classic Love Saves the Day amounts to the follow-up. The collection features several tracks selected regularly by Mancuso, the party host who exerted a prophetic and unparalleled influence on New York City party culture, as charted by Lawrence. It also includes choice picks from groundbreaking DJs such as Michael Cappello, Steve D’Acquisto, Francis Grasso, Richie Kaczor, Larry Levan and Nicky Siano, whose expressive contributions are faithfully recorded in Love Saves the Day. The compilation traces how disco grew out of the record collections and intuitive sensibility of these and other DJs, offering a unique survey of the era’s expansive sonic palette.

    Höga Nord Rekords proudly presents Birds from London. Birds or Katie Wilkinson is relatively new as a producer but has been DJ-ing and playing in bands for the last nine years, marinating herself in interesting underground music. This 7”, Transcendental Phases/Tunnel Vision is her first release on Höga Nord Rekords.

    Birds is a declaration of love to electronic music and psychedelia. The vocals in Tunnel Vision bares traces from the psychedelic pioneers of the 60’s – Think Roky Erikson with a Roland 303! Birds’ music is powerful and monotonous and she creates a dirty, warm and monumental soundscape. The production is airy and dynamic

    Wilkinson mean that “we must try and find harmony in what we have and try and aim towards something positive, despite the fact that we live in a society that’s been completed fucked via the selfish behaviour of others (and most probably, ourselves at times).” With Brexit and the new wave of racism, spreading over Europe Birds makes music for a generation left with little hope but with the desire for something too long for.

    When Glitterbox maestro Simon Marlin, aka The Shapeshifters, reunited with CHIC's Kimberly Davis to bring us Second Chance, the track gave us the ultimate Studio 54 dancefloor feeling. Becoming an instant disco anthem, it was playlisted on Radio 2, giving the whole nation a reason to groove. Now Glitterbox Recordings present a record box essential, the 12” vinyl featuring the stunning original, a remix from Italian producer Moplen and The Shapeshifters Reprise. Putting a new spin on the much loved tune, Moplen, takes on ‘Second Chance’ by adding his distinctive drum sounds to the extended remix, crafting a rhythmic disco vibe and making the most of the exquisite strings. The Shapeshifters Reprise delivers a slow and dreamy build up that evolves to funk-filled bass, complimenting Kimberly Davis' punchy chorus. This special delivery also features the Accapella, an essential tool for discerning disco DJs. Music this good deserves to be heard on wax.

    4. B2. Sergio Ramos (w/ Thomass Jackson)

    Theus Mago serves up a hypnotising triplet of tracks on the ‘Apache Nights’ EP for Dave Harvey’s Futureboogie, each cut brimming with psychedelic tendencies and an assured chugging pace, and British stalwarts, Chicken Lips, are on hand with a tantalising remix.

    Hailing from Mexico, Theus Mago may also be familiar to many as the man behind Bufi, and across both aliases, has released singles and albums for the likes of Electrique Music, Turbo, Roam Recordings, and his own Duro imprint.

    ‘Apache Nights’ is built upon an irresistible booming dudwise b-line and tight and lively rhythm section, as esoteric melodies and trippy samples & tones pan across the sound board. British duo, Chicken Lips, have admirably served many year’s service in the alt.disco genre, and alongside their ground- breaking productions on Kingsize and Azuli, are probably more renowned for the raft of remixes turned in over the years for everyone from Newcleus to Simian Mobile Disco, Ladyhawke to Tiga, Ennio Morricone to Soul Mekanik. For their ‘Chicken Lips Malfunction’ of ‘Apache Nights’, we’re slapped around the chops with a gargantuan nine-minute night ride! ‘Piu Mosso’ jumps on board the magic carpet for a transcendental journey, whilst ‘Sergio Ramos’ has Theus teaming up with Thomass Jackson (Gomma/Calypso Records) for a raw and minimal workout, brain scrambling
    sonics and a contagious groove that closes this exceptional release.

    1. A1. Taana Gardner - When You Touch Me
    2. B1. Taana Gardner - When You Touch Me (Instrumental)

    NYC's legendary West End record label has contributed a fair few classics to the disco cannon and continues to influence dance music today with it's forward looking releases. 'When you touch me' is no exception, recorded and released in the golden year of 1979 and featuring the breathy, sensual vocals of a young Tanaa Gardner who had previously worked as a backing vocalist for numerous other projects until the label released her (other) stone cold solo classic 'Work that body' the same year on 12".

    Both cuts featured on her self titled debut LP and boasted the combined production and studio talents of Kenton Nix, Bob Blank and of course - Larry Levan. Now, that's a serious line-up to have behind the boards (& in the clubs!) and of course 'When you touch me' was a classic with it's slow, elongated intro that calls to mind a sleazier version of Donna Summer's 'Love hangover' before launching into a full-on disco assault that you won't forget in a hurry! Yes, the record surprises you, Tanaa leads us into a false sense of a 'slow jam' and then - Boom - We're off!

    Backed with the incredible instrumental version the 12" is repressed here in it's original 1979 glory, an essential classic that has stood the test of time for the last 30+ years & is now available again, remastered & repressed for 2017 in conjunction with West End Records, NYC.

    3. B2. You Can't Have Your Cake And Eat It Too

    Another West-End sure-shot! This sublime piece of early electronic Boogie has always worn it's "classic" badge with a relaxed sense of pride since it's release in 1982, perhaps it's the languid synthed out groove supplied by studio maestros Nick martinelli & David Todd or Brenda Taylor's sublime vocals reminding us all that the game of love is always a 2 way street that are to blame?

    Whatever it is, this is a solid, classic slice of Disco gold, more on the down to mid-tempo tip but still big enough to keep the dance-floors packed from the Garage to the Loft & beyond with ease! The production simply sounds years ahead of it's time (still does!) & it has the FUNK in bucket-loads, this is as essential as it gets, the real deal. Featured here are all the original mixes that were on the 1982 pressing (Yes! There's a dub mix!).

    Re-mastered, re-pressed & re-released for 2015 with all original West End Records label artwork intact. Done in conjunction & with the permission of all right holders.

    1. A. I'm Every Woman (Dimitri From Paris Remix)
    2. Chaka Khan - Clouds (Dimitri From Paris Super Disco Blend)

    French Disco maestro Dimitri From Paris' Le Edits imprint returns for it's fifth special release, bringing you only the finest and most beautifully executed lovingly reworked classics from the four corners of the discotheque dance-floor. Hot on the heels of the last handful of releases (all now highly sought after and collectible, of course!) Dimitri is back once more and he's proving that 'quality over quantity' is what really counts in today's musical landscape. When you buy a Le Edits release, you know you are holding something très magnifique in your hands!

    Le Edits No.5 sees the ultimate disco DIVA step into the picture, a truly inspirational and legendary vocalist whose name is known across the musical galaxy - Chaka Khan! Any self-respecting fan of Soul, Funk, Disco and beyond will undoubtedly have a few of her records in their collection, but not any like this one. Two all-time classics penned by Disco legends Ashford & SImpson, get the DFP touch this time around with the evergreen and world-conquering dancefloor anthem 'I'm Every Woman' taking up the A-side of this release. As ever, this huge track gets a new lease of life in true Le Edits fashion, respectfully reworked and rearranged from the master tapes - you've never heard it like this before! On the flip, Dim treats us to a more underground, rare slice of Chaka with the epic stylings of the mighty 'Clouds'. A true cult classic that is a bonafide Paradise Garage anthem and easily one of the most dramatic Disco cuts ever. We get to hear the incredible arrangements and strings refreshed, while Chaka soars over what is one of the diamonds of her extensive catalogue. Incroyable!

    If you've been following the label you will know that only the finest Disco reworks are released on Le Edits. Extra-special versions of classics and rarer than rare tracks, all lovingly re-touched and mixed from the reels and master tapes each time, fully sanctioned and created in conjunction with the artists, rights holders and Above Board Distribution. 100% official and essential.

No re-press guaranteed. Utilising the highest end tip-on heavy duty sleeves, and outer protective sleeves, pressed onto 100% virgin vinyl. These new mixes have been legitimately commissioned and will not be available digitally. This product cost 4 times as much to produce than your average Disco edit 12’’ because Le Edits believe in quality first and foremost.

    Early DJ support from Dimitri From Paris, FK and Gilles Peterson.

    Apollo / R&S are delighted to welcome back The Primitive Painter, aka the duo of Roman Flügel and Jörn Elling Wuttke for a timely reissue of their 1994 lost classic self-titled album of sonorous IDM.

    Growing up in Frankfurt, in the 80s and 90s the duo met at an indie rock club in their home town of Darmstadt, bonding over their shared obsession with the first wave of acid, Chicago house and early Detroit techno as well as their patronage of now iconic Frankfurt club nights like The Omen or Dorian Gray or the infamous Delirium Record shop run by scene stalwarts Ata (Robert Johnson) and Heiko MSO (Playhouse).

    Taking inspiration from the likes of The Black Dog and Transmat as well as seminal compilations such as Planet E’s Intergalactic Beats and Warp’s Artificial intelligence compilation the duo honed their inventive take on the Detroit techno blueprint under the monicker Acid Jesus, debuting on their freshly minted Klang Elektronik label. The label was started in conjunction with Ata and Heiko after Fluegel & Wuttke (regular patrons of the Delirium store) pressed a demo on them, muttering the immortal line; “Please listen to the tape, we are big Mr. Fingers fans.”

    Through the mid ’90s the project flourished giving rise to a classic album and a brace of singles that number amongst the best of the era’s techno, winning them a influential fans most notably Sven Väth, David Holmes and Andrew Weatherall who invited them to play live at one of the legendary Sabresonic parties in London.

    Alongside the success of the Acid Jesus project, the duo found great inspiration in outside of the club, including an ambient happening when the KLF came to play Frankfurt; “There were live sheep eating grass on stage while they played at Mark Spoon’s club XS”, as well as cinematic influence from the likes of Jim Jarmush and Wim Wenders. It was however the euphonic IDM grandeur of Apollo Recordings self titled compilation of 1993 that really got their creative juices flowing: “It was a ten track compilation with artists like David Morley, Model 500, Aphex Twin which still sounds so good today,” Jörn enthuses. “ It was really the trigger to go away from the Detroit sound and more towards the big melodies of B12 etc.”

    Deciding to make their tribute to this style of music the duo turned out 10 tracks of gauzy, melodious electronica in a white hot fever, one after another over the ensuing months. Settling on a name for the new project they picked ‘The Primitive Painters’ taking inspiration from the band Felt. “We are both children of the C86 movement,” explains Jörn. “this attitude of noisy art school influenced rock like Primal Scream, MBV, The Jesus & Mary Chain really inspired us to take a DIY approach to our music.”

    They sent the resulting demo cassette to Renaat at R&S / Apollo. “We really had no expectations,” Jörn explains. “So we were shocked and delighted when we received a fax saying that he wanted to release it”.

    The resulting release was bungled by an R&S mix up that attributed the album to the duo’s own Klang Elektronik label which confused both fans and distributors alike, denying the release the critical boost and attention that it so richly deserved. Accordingly the release slipped out without much fanfare, with a chastened Fluegel & Wuttke returning to their Acid Jesus activities which would eventually lead to their blockbusting success as Alter Ego.

    Over the ensuing years the reputation of The Primitive Painter album has only grown, with second hand copies (only 500 vinyl were pressed) changing hands for exorbitant amounts on Discogs, leading us to this opportune moment of a richly deserved ‘first’ release on the label for which the project was started, Apollo / R&S.

    “This really brings us full circle,” says Jörn. “Apollo / R&S meant and means so much to us as artists and so it was bittersweet to not have the official release - to put that right all these years later feels really good.”

    This new vinyl release comes in re-created original gatefold artwork and includes all original 10 tracks (Stoned Soul Picnic was previously on the CD only).

Im beyond proud and happy that I get to share Bobby and his music properly with the world.”

Unreleased mixes, classics and overlooked gems mined from the last 20+ of contemporary dance music are the order of the day. From Chicago, Detroit and New York to London and beyond, Mint Condition have got their expert digging hats on to bring you exclusive heat and those rarer than rare jams that have been on your wants list for years! Dig in....

    Housey Doingz was a sort of pre-millennial super crew of London producers and DJ's (Dave Coker, Dave Pine, Justin Bailey, Laurant Webb, Nathan Coles, Terry Francis), movers and shakers on the capital's tech-house scene. The latter half of the decade into the first half of the noughties belonged to the exciting future looking and stripped down sounds that were emanating from now cult labels like Wiggle, Swag, Surreal etc. The Housey Doingz crew were at the centre of this scene and sound, but 'Doing It' from 1997 and released on the Pagan label predates and showcases a plethora of sonic styles that later became synonymous with that scene. Borderline 'Progressive' numbers like this corking EP are real beauties and found themselves in the boxes of the top jocks of that world and more (see: Sasha, John Digweed & co). A beautifully diverse collection of cuts right here, and a very rare and sought after slab of wax among record collecting circles. For a real flavour of what was to come 'Doing It' is a dope look through the window of one of London's most exciting electronic music scenes.

    'Doing It' has been legitimately re-released with the full involvement of the Housey Doingz massive and was remastered by London's Curve Pusher from the original DAT's especially for Mint Condition. 100% legit, licensed and released. Dug, remastered, repackaged and brought to you by the caring folks at your favourite reissue label - Mint Condition!

    When it comes to bashing out creative, highly complex, yet seemingly simplistic rave bangers, Luke Vibert certainly has the chops for delivering the goods in spades.

Originally released in 1993 as part of the Atmosphere EP Vol 1, ‘Track 1’ quickly became a core reference for the foundation and formation of the New Jersey house sound, with the track later re-released in 2016 titled as ‘The Way It Goes’ with Denari joining Chandler on vocals. However, this summer sees the legendary imprint unveil a new fresh take on the production courtesy of PIV records co-owner and fast-rising house favourite Chris Stussy, with the bubbling Amsterdam-based artist offering up two fresh reworks this June as he returns to Madhouse following recent material via the likes of Eastenderz, Robsoul, Berg Audio and Moscow Records.

    Harnessing the originals iconic bassline offering his own interpretation on its arrangement, the Dutchman introduces a combination of resonant leads and classy sun-soaked melodies alongside Denari’s infectious vocals throughout to offer up a slick slice of house music, whilst the Dub introduces rolling percussion alongside trademark low-slung rhythms, electric piano lines and dubbed-out chords to offer an after-hours rework of the classic production.

    Original sales notes: Kerri Chandler is back on King Street and OH DIP!, did he bring us some gems this time around! Already making huge waves before its release, this is funky-ass Chicago house that bumps the bottom while distorted synth stabs slam the top.  Figure acid house...without the acid! Peak hour fun times with the twisted standout track, Bar A Thym. On the flip side sits the more soulful Sunshine & Twilight. A beautiful & traditional mover that fits in a groove which Kerri is best known for.

    Circoloco resident Luca Cazal teams up with Italian talent Andrea Fiorito as the pair deliver their ‘What Is Music’ EP on Infuse this June, backed by a remix from Mariano Mateljan.

    An Ibiza mainstay, with regular appearances at DC-10 for Paradise and his long-standing global Circoloco residency, See Double boss Luca Cazal has established himself as a quality and consistent force within the minimal house scene and beyond. An avid digger with an innate ability within the studio, Cazal’s career has also welcomed sets at internationally renowned institutions including fabric and Club der Vissionare, with late June now welcoming a debut appearance on Infuse alongside fellow Italian Andrea Fiorito. An artist driven by idealism, with a sound palette that takes in influences and productions from experimental techno through to lighter more delicate and orchestral sonics, Bari-based Fiorito has himself served up material via the likes of Housewax, Broquade, Get Physical and Cynosure to date, and here we see the two talents combine for the very first time to offer up ‘What Is Music’, accompanied by Infuse talent Mariano Mateljan on remix duties.

    A-side opener ‘Tornado Girl’ is a groove-fulled rolling production armed with slinking hats, evolving basslines and warping lead synths, whilst on the flip, title cut ‘What Is Music’ delves deeper into darker, more paired back afterhours aesthetics with slinking organic percussion and sci-fi electronics throughout. To close, Croatian favourite Mateljan’s lively interpretation welcomes sharp kicks, distorted vocal hooks and haunting melodies, punctuating the package in impressive fashion.

    4. B2. Love Can't Turn Around (Houseapella)

    "Love Can't Turn Around" is a Chicago House ANTHEM! A true classic of the genre. Universally recognized and loved, it made history as the very first House record to reach the UK singles charts in 1986 and continues to find new fans today.

    Inspired heavily by Isaac Hayes' underground Disco smash "I Can't Turn Around", a record that was very big in various Chicago clubs getting plays from DJ's like Ron Hardy, Frankie Knuckles and more. With "Love Can't Turn Around" Farley and Jesse re-appropriated Hayes' Disco vibe and updated it with drum machines, synths and of course, Mr.Darryl Pandy's unique vocal performance centering around the desperation of a lover who has been wronged. A truly influential track that opened the doors for many producers and DJ's in the decades to follow.

    Here, for the first time, the definitive mixes of this all time classic record are available in one place.
    Re-mastered and re-issued in conjunction with Trax Records this essential Chicago record lives on.

    The voice comes from a radio, protests in a country far away. Under the rising sun, cranes stalk the horizon, building more towers for the super-rich. Was it a dream, or did you hear sirens in the night? Qui volé? Who stole?

    Built around a simple mantra sampled from the radio news, a hypnotic organ bassline, and layers of shifting, swirling, insect-like bleeps and shuffles, Qui Volé is an anthem for paranoid times. Flabbergast (Vincent Lemieux and Guillaume Coutu-Dumont) deliver with a wobbly, swinging late night dub version on the flip.

    1. A1. Adam Port - White Noise Romantica
    2. B1. Yeah But No - Run Run Run (Adam Port Remix)

    Over the course of his discography, Adam Port has made a name for himself as a man of many facets and sentiments. On his new Keinemusik EP, we'll meet him again as the virtuoso of tender, yet inducing tones and grooves, delivering nothing less than an anthemic floor romance on side A, fittingly titled "White Noise Romantica". In sound design, it's as Port as it gets with all the percussive nuances, the looming haze of bass, the staccato synth hook that altogether intertwine to a gradual build-up of excitement, yet avoiding an overly obvious break-construction and rather maintaining a graceful posture from start to finish.

    Another affective sureshot on the flipside - let's rather talk of an AA side here than a B - as Port puts his touch on Yeah But No's single "Run Run Run", originally released last year on Sinnbus. Port remains close to the originals structure and main ingredients, yet implementing his signature percussive and rhythmic notion and ramping up the tune's dramatic and moving impact, to a point where singer Fabian Kuss' concluding chorus "I just wanna run" easily can be read as "I just wanna dance".

    Crosstown Rebels get set to unleash one of the year’s most highly anticipated records ‘Can’t Leave You’, from one of the biggest stars of 2011, Maceo Plex. The flawless ‘Sweating Tears EP’, is a double headed dancefloor delight – with the equally as hot ‘Stop You Hate’ on the flip.

    Hot on the heels of his anthemic ‘Vibe Your Love’, superb ‘Your Style’ and killer ‘Life Index’ album (Crosstown Rebels) – Maceo Plex is one of the hottest properties in dance music right now!

    ‘Can’t Leave You’ is without doubt a smash record of epic proportions. Already winning over legions of fans after its outings at some of the world’s biggest dance events over the last few months, the demand for this record is now reaching fever pitch. ‘Can’t Leave You’ is Maceo Plex truly arriving at his signature sound. Eric’s fusion of lush instrumentals and disco bounce with a darker vein of rumbling bass – along with funky hand-claps and guitars and lively synth lines, amounts to an irresistible concoction of immaculately produced dancefloor disorder.

    B-Side ‘Stop Your Hate’ is going to be a fellow summer terrace favourite with an epic build and disco breakdown that showcases Maceo Plex at the peak of his technical prowess. Just as stomping as ‘Can’t Leave You’ but with a murkier quality ‘Stop Your Hate’ is Maceo flexing his interplanetary funk muscle while delivering an affirmative message to the party crowd.

Candido's 'Jingo' sounds completely fresh, beginning with a totally unheard first few bars, rearranged piano motifs and dubby sounds bristle up against the percussion, all with an even heavier focus on the Cuban, Latin roots of Candido Camero's sound, amazing! You've heard this one before, but not like this. On the flip is First Choice's all-out anthem 'Let No Man Put Asunder' - again a truly original reimagining of a stone-cold classic, using the percussions and infamous vocal vamps to devastating effect, absolutely essential versions here.

    Brooklyn NYC - 1990. Former Berklee college of music student Ed "The Red" Goltsman has already been locked away in the studio for the previous 5 years producing and playing on numerous underground Soul and Hip Hop records. His deep love of music and his involvement with these projects eventually led to him setting up his own venture. Inspired by encounters with NYC's dance music underground these sounds and experiences helped shaped his idea and sound into what would become one of the most popular, cult dance music labels that emerged from the city during those fertile years - Bottom Line Records.

    During the label's life Ed The Red produced, mixed and played on almost all of the releases that came out on Bottom Line, alongside Nelson "Paradise" Roman and other artists such as Lenny Fontana, The Burrell Brothers and more, Ed crafted a deep, soulful, jazz infected Garage sound that resonated across dance-floors in NYC and New Jersey with the releases getting regular plays at the legendary clubs of the day by the biggest jocks.

    Bottom Line were on a roll, achieving hit records and charting high while retaining underground credibility on the streets and in the clubs. A true independent label whose releases are undoubtedly a huge influence on hosts of contemporary producers and DJ's today, still sounding incredible in 2016 (and beyond!).

    Across 3 discs, and with the assistance of Ed "The Red" we have a deep selection from the Bottom Line archives, carefully selected to represent the many numerous faces and sounds of the label. From the ethnic leaning deepness of Flow's "Another time", a big hit in both the UK's Balearic and House scenes to the robotic chug of O.D.C's "My mind is going", now quite a rare record to find due to it's scarcity, the selection celebrates the forgotten gems, club hits and rarities that this powerhouse of a label released. Each track on this compilation has been carefully remastered from Ed's personal DAT collection and sequenced for maximum club play. This is a 100% legit, licensed compilation, produced with the involvement and kind permission of Ed "The Red" Goltsman and the Bottom Line Records family.

    To say ‘Summertime’ was the record of 2009 is an understatement. A deluge of hype dogged the release after being broken at WMC and it didn’t disappear, getting played to the masses by every form of DJ until well after the year was out and named one of DJ Mag’s top Miami tunes ever. It now finally get’s remixed for this Summer with some stupendous remixes.

    First up is London’s legendary Rob Mello, delivery a driving dirty house fueled remix with heavy Prince overtones. The production is impeccable, the groove unstoppable….unbeatable! Next up and Jamie Jones and Hot Creations label hero Robert James, take you back and house the crowd! Full of ominous bass lines and sinister stabs, this will have you pulling shapes before you know it, amazing!! On the flip and the magnificent SIS delivers an off kilter, driving, dubby rollercoaster ride of a remix, drifting in and out of the hypnotic groove as the beats swell in perfect syncopation.

    Jamie has recently launched his new label Hot Creations, and has had some amazing releases by Robert James, Lee Foss, Burnski, himself and as Hot Natured (along with Lee Foss). Jamie is due to release a another new track on Crosstown this Autumn, ‘Paradise’ with a Art Department Remix.. and it’s a corker!

    Veranda Culture is the new project from Melbourne artist and DJ, Francis Inferno Orchestra
    The new album, his second full length LP, follows on from his most recent release, the club-ready “Oasis and Time”, The next step in James’ musical journey sees the producer shift-direction with the tranquil and beautiful Veranda Culture, balancing New Age ambience, percussive pulse rides and echoing synths for an album that unfurls with a calming patience and soothing confidence throughout.
    Recorded over a period of three years between Melbourne and London, FIO began making Veranda Culture after discovering the debut album of Greek-born, Sausalito-based composer Iasos – the New Age masterpiece ‘Inter-Dimensional Music’ LP — in Melbourne’s Liquorice Pie record store. The album is filled with quietly twitching rattles and bells, gurgling talking drums, and snippets of trickling water and bird songs collected through field recordings, creating a bed of sound that is hard to pin down but effortless to absorb as a whole.

    More vinyl remixes from Psychemagik with the long awaited official 'Dancehall Days' remix sanctioned by Jack Hues from Wang Chung himself. Jack liked Psychemagiks re-edit of Dance Hall Days so much he contacted the duo and offered them the parts for an official remix. The result is a monster dancefloor friendly beast that is true to the original edit but with some extra magik! ‘Psychemagik stand out from the crowd with high production values and innate musicality. I usually find remixes tedious, but this takes you on some off-world journey – very cool.’ Jack Hues (Wang Chung)
