Freddie Gibbs & Madlib - Thuggin (Stones Throw Records)

NON PLUS ULTRA 1980-1987 (Domestica Records)

I discovered this compilation on the excellent Hivern Discs blog. If you like synthwave, minimalwave, mannequin records, you should definitely consider buying this release. 
The compilation is available at Domestica

Press release communication:
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 80s. 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.
We present a repertoire of some pioneer groups, which are as unknown as they are interesting, creative, and ahead of their times. After nearly thirty years’ silence they have stood the test of time and still sound as contemporary as they did then.
For the first time they will be released in LP format in a limited edition of 525 copies.
Hand made cover. Gatefold with heavy weight brown board (390 gram). 180 gram vinyl. Includes postcard and compiled dossier with detailed information regarding all the bands featured on the Non Plus Ultra 1980-1987 album.
Limited edition of 100 copies with extra DVD (+4 euros).

Press Text:
This is the second volume of The Minimal Wave Tapes series, a collection of rare electronic music compiled from bands around the world,  Most of the songs were recorded in the 1980s and originally released on limited edition cassettes or vinyl by the artists themselves, and only a handful of people knew about them.  Now they've been remastered from their analog source tapes, brought to you by Veronica Vasicka and Peanut Butter Wolf.

The Minimal Wave musical genre was hallmarked by the use of the analog synths and drum machines manufactured in the 70s and 80s, and characterized by simple music structures made by musicians working in the early D.I.Y. aesthetic: recording on tape in their home studios, creating their own album artwork, and often collaborating via postage mail. The fanzine CLEM (Contact List Of Electronic Musicians) was very influential in creating a worldwide community for this sort of music, before digital technology and the Internet came into play.

Minimal Wave the label was founded in New York City in 2005 by Veronica Vasicka, who focused the label solely on obscure Minimal Wave recordings, researching, re-mastering and releasing them on limited vinyl and digital.

Nora Dean - Angie La La (Ay Ay Ay)

This is definitely my favourite reggae track, probably because it doesn't sound like reggae. I've been hypnotised by it ever since I discovered Pilooski's edit back in 2010. Its slow mantra like lyrics, the exotic sounds and the unusual rhythm carry me away, far far away.
