A Legowelt infomercial, sweltering Italo jams, a ’90s Mizrahi edit and much more…
Infectious italo goodness from 2 of the best in the game; Århus-based, one-man Italo encyclopedia Flemming Dalum and Mothball Record‘s very own Hysteric. Both tracks are taken from the first ever Mothball Record 12″, released in partnership with Amsterdam’s Bordello A Parigi. The original pressing can go for over £100 on Discogs so don’t miss out!
We slept on this one when it first did the rounds, but deemed it still worth a share. John Heckle, Basic Soul Unit, Eddie Niguel and Iron Curtis on an experimental tip, delivering four ambient transmissions capable of tearing trans-dimensional rifts in the space-time vortex via Singapore’s Midnight Shift label.
The good people at Fortuna Records have offered up a “secret weapon” of theirs, making Autarkic‘s ‘Rave Zehava’ edit available as a free download. “Re-fixing a ’90s Israeli classic” from Israeli singer Zehava Ben, the Tel Aviv-based producer focuses his edit on the dancefloor while retaining all the exotic charm of Ben’s original.
Ever the eccentric, Hague-based producer Danny Wolfers (aka Legowelt) has shared an ‘infomercial’ promoting an upcoming album under the recently revived alias, Smackos. Wolfers at his finest, an ominous voiceover explains how the album was “recorded using only the most arcane, dusty production techniques available to mankind, full with crappy early 1990s digital synthesisers” while listeners are treated to a full suite of those chintzy synth sounds.
A Vampire Goes West is out on January 24th via Nightwind Records.
After several months dormant, I’m a Cliché‘s edit series finally returns, this time with Les Disques De La Mort and Multi Culti artist Manfredas at the helm. The Lithuanian makes up for lost time though, contributing a woozy, laid-back cut and paste of Rhythm & Noise’s ‘Schismastic’.
