Moullinex - Flora (Gomma/Discotexas)


This release smells like Lisboa, it is warm, positive, festive and colourful.
The Sun drenched funky disco house/pop tracks will definitely help us  forget how shitty the weather really is.

Flora is available at the Discotexas bandcamp. A special pack CD + tote bag is available there.
Don't sleep on this release, it might be your only remedy for the ambient morosity!!!

Woolfy Vs Projections - The Return of Love (Permanent Vacation)


I hadn't heard such nice balearic music in quite some time.
I've had an Indian Summer obsession lately and Woolfy vs Projections' Return of Love' arrives just in time to fulfill that obsession even more. It's a perfect album from start to finish.

This LP will definitely be in my 2012 top 10.

Strange U (Eglo Records)



I don't know much about the Strange U collective. Hailing from England, they produce dark and twisted hip hop tracks.
what I do know for sure, is that I really like what i'm hearing.

Tomorrow’s Achievements: Parry Music Library 1976​-​86


I've been diving again  into the library music world lately. I bought the two volumes of the
Cosmic Future Groove series and today i discovered this gem; released by Public Information.



This is Tomorrow’s Achievements, an exclusive Public Information foray into the Canadian Library institution, Parry Music.

With access granted by founder John Parry we have selected twenty-five of our favourite electronic tracks, a late summer / early autumn heat-wave of perfect melody.

Parry Music was founded in Toronto, 1974 by John Parry and Chris Stone. John was formerly a manager of revered UK library Chappell Music and Chris was a Canadian music consultant, both brought some familiar musicians to the table.

Johnny Hawksworth, Robin Artus, Paul Kass, Nino Nardini (close allies with Roger Roger) are on board Tomorrow’s Achievements . At the same time we have a little known Canadian Library musician who features heavily, one Harry Forbes.

Forbes is the real driving force of our Parry-Love; a master of imminent, hummable melody, sublime synth miniatures baked in sweetness. Elsewhere we revel with the other players in proto-Balearic house, groovy electronic disco, spooked choral drone, freaked-modular scorch, weird Radiophonic bleep. These are the soundtracks to movie car chases never known, lost kids TV shows never realized, radio-ads never broadcast – music to make your ears sing for more.

A compliation put together piece by piece at Public Information HQ, lovingly re-mastered by Rashad at D&M and artwork by Jack Featherstone.

Release date 15 October 2012
