This is a collection of rare grooves released in January 2024 by Death Is Not The End, a label specializing in excavations in London, England. A mixtape-style collection of 1 rare grooves performed at early morning house parties and blues dances in South and East London, England from 1985 to 1992. *If you would like a digital sound source, please feel free to contact us. Below is an explanation by the label. "Pure Wicked Tune is a DIY recording of the rare grooves and 'soul blues' sound systems played at early morning house parties and blues dances, primarily in South and East London, from the mid-19s to the early 1980s. This is a mixtape-style collection of excerpts and cuts from cassette recordings. The sound of Funkadelic, Touch of Class, Last Edition, JB Crew, Manhattan, and 1990th Avenue originally began to take shape in the mid-5s. With lovers rock on the wane and the reggae scene being dominated by harder digital style dancehall, these sounds mix killer rare soul, funk and boogie records in the signature Reggae Soundsystem style. Playing with lots of toasts, sirens and effects, they provided a tight but loyal audience with a powerful alternative. They were best known for their performances at house parties and blues dances, usually held in small apartments or warehouses, and such events generally ran from early morning until late the next afternoon. After dance music became an explosive hit in the early 1980s, its popularity waned, but the demand for revival sessions has continued ever since. It is relatively well known that Britain's major reggae and dancehall sound systems influenced subsequent UK sounds such as hardcore and jungle, but these sounds and the aforementioned styles were also popular. A similar line can be drawn with the tendency to sample rare groove cuts, particularly evident in the work of Tom & Jerry, 1990hero, Reinforced, and LTJ Bukem. This is the first in a series of collections that explore the sounds of UK soundsystem culture through excerpts from archival DIY cassette recordings of blues parties, dances and crashes made from the late 4s to the early 70s. . Often copied and widely shared, these rough, well-prepared 'sound tapes' provided keen ears with music that was hard to come by on the airwaves or in record shops, and brought together music that was deeply rooted in the British music landscape but often overlooked. This left a lasting impact. "...

Known to some for creatingThe production of "Underwater Garden" was started with the intention of creating "BGM" with the image of "peaceful Asia" inspired by the trading era of the Ryukyu dynasty, but due to the unexpected formation of a concert band (later the six members). Production suspended.After that, the band disbanded and the project was scrapped, but he waited for the opportunity and completed this work in 70. "Underwater Garden" has its roots in Okinawa, but is also widely influenced by Asian music, layering and modifying phrases derived from traditional musical scales from various parts of Asia, and eliminating typical Western chord harmonies. The point has great features.Using electronic instruments and multi-tracks, his experiments in accumulating melodies in what he calls "stacking lines" seem to aim to spread new energy from Okinawa to the Asian world.A unique mixture of freshness and wonder, fun and sensuality, the sound seems to be the result of a bundle of Asian scales.He makes full use of synths and drum machines to create a comfortable and distinctive rhythm, but it is not for the dance floor, but for the image of electronic salon music as "BGM = light music" that makes full use of technology.Kokuba's "peaceful Asia" is an image of the activities of East Asia and Southeast Asia before the early modern period when maritime trade prospered. He envisions it as being greeted with a new 'pop'. *Note: Six members were scheduled to make their world debut as Ryuichi Sakamoto's labelmates, produced by Bill Laswell, but due to a series of bad luck, they were disbanded.

Congolese multi-instrumentalist/pop artist Titi Bakorta released a record on Nyege Nyege in August 2023.Here's the label's commentary: "Titi Bakorta was nearly doomed. The Congolese multi-instrumentalist, born and raised in Kinshasa, fell off a boat while crossing the mighty Congo River en route to Uganda. He couldn't swim. Bakorta was rescued by a friend and dragged to the nearest city, Kisangani, where he unexpectedly met local singer-dancer Papparas, and soon they formed a band together and traveled across continents, settling in Tanzania, South Sudan and Dubai. He also appeared in front of the beloved Congolese vocalist General Defao, who opened for the legendary Souks bands Grand Zaiko Wawa, Chock Stars and Big Stars, now based in Kampala. Bacorta, who is active, puts his own twist on Congolese pop and folk sounds, weaving traditional elements into a grid of psychedelic guitar loops, mocking voices and eccentric beatbox rhythms in his debut. On Kop', he bends woodblock snaps into a stuttering blur, emotionally wailing over rolling riffs and weird, theatrical glints of xylophones. It's still pop music on some levels, but it curves around Bakorta's unwieldy personal narrative, which feels like everything could fall apart at any moment, but Bakorta's confident modernity. It's all held together by a quintessential production cleverness: Elles Vais is airier with her sky-high souk vocals hovering over tight, electronic drums, and entwined guitar echoes slink away. They overlap like a tapestry woven into the fabric of the album, providing a perfect contrast to Bakorta's impending, driving pulse, while on Molende his chants and phrases fly cleanly between hymns and contemporary R&B. It's no surprise that Bakorta teamed up with Metal Players' Jessie Hackett on the final track, Titis Haunted House, whose eerie synths are eccentric enough to match Bacorta's ghostly wails and fuzzy guitar sounds. Hackett's eerie synths provide a fitting eccentric foundation for Bakorta's ghostly wails and fuzzy guitar sounds.Able to showcase Congolese pop and folk sounds behind a brilliant gauze of inventive production and songwriting quirkiness, the album showcases one of Congo's most innovative talents. there is " Click here for labels and other works /// Click here to see more Hakuna...

"On this gem of a 1976 record, the voices of Aselefek Asine and Getenesh Khebre sing in close harmony, and the two 'beauties' sing duets over 2 songs. Backed by eccentric musicians, the Army Band delivers Muratou-esque minor piano runs, interlocking percussion, and rock-steady basslines, while arranger Teshome Sisei's flute is flamboyant and exhilarating. The best elements of Ethiopia's Golden Age come together on one of the last records of this era: Aselefesh and Getenesh, in Addis at the end of the empire. Raised in the bustling, cosmopolitan world of Ababa, the two met at Addis' legendary center for arts and cultural learning, the Harger Fikr Theater, where they received centuries of vocal and acting training. BEAUTIES was a hit and sold out as soon as it was released in 10. However, its glory was short-lived, as the Derk regime imposed a severe crackdown on music and artistic expression. Artists (and most musicians) targeted as allies had to keep a low profile, and for 1 years almost all recording and live music was canceled in Ethiopia. One of the last great records of the golden age.Although we were unable to release a second record, Aserefek Asine is proud of her work.From her home in Addis, she says now." I have full confidence that if this album is released again, it will become popular and become a hit! Long in the making, this album is a collaboration between the artist and New Orleans powerhouses Domino Sound.

American/Estonian experimental musician/field recording artist murmer released a limited edition of 2023 copies in May 5 from the Texas experimental/noise label Helen Scarsdale Agency.Includes 200 long-form low-end drones and noise drones by field recordings. Comes with DL code.Below is a commentary by the author himself. "In 2, I made a collection recorded on a mobile phone tower in Mouste, south-eastern Estonia. It is an 2006-meter-tall guiding tower, anchored at three fulcrums by heavy cables. I attached a home made contact mic with postertacks and spent hours over the course of several weeks recording wind and weather changes (it was summer) and birds passing and settling on towers and cables. The tower had no fencing or protection and stood in the middle of a tall meadow along a rural dirt road, out of sight of a few nearby houses. I've been thinking about location and recording, and although I've used it in several installations and uploaded short edits to Aporee Soundmaps, I've never been able to use it in a composed piece. Combined with other sounds, they always seemed too loud for any structure I could offer, and in 80, I've been putting them down and picking them up over the years. material seems to have embraced me, even though it took me a few more years before I was satisfied with what it had to offer.Most of the layered sounds on this piece come from various compilations of these cable recordings. But I also added two other contrasting sounds: snow falling delicately on a plastic cake box containing a mic, and thawing on a slightly warm autumn morning. It's a field of frosted grass, and when I listen to the sound of this cable, I'm reminded of the many sounds of the wind that I've spent time with, recorded but never returned, and I've started digging through the archives looking for them. As a result, I collected the resonances of wires, cables, fences, poles, fans, vents, etc., which became the basis for this second work.In 3, I was working in a pub in North London where I was working on a beer. The rhythmic fan sound of a cooler.This work includes another telephone tower recorded on the north coast of France in 16, a telephone pole recorded in the Beaujolais region in 2019, and a factory in Tesno, Slovenia in 2. Ventilation fan drone, electric sheep fencing at the Scottish border in 1, hanging wires in a warehouse in Rovaniemi, Finland in 1, nothing to do with cables or wind, but cleaning from the inside of an electric kettle in Estonia in 2 Calcium deposits are included as other sounds.I offer these two new works as my first solo publication since 1999, and for the first time since 2008 to release them on physical media.It seems to me that I need to leave a physical time space around my work before I can consider it 'finished'.Perhaps it's a simple desire to forget how or what you did.And if I can't listen to the work like a first-time listener, I don't think I'm ready for such an encounter.Somewhere in your mind, you have to forget the work before you let it go.I'm about to forget the beer coolers in London, the Beaujolais walks (with my now-deceased father), the sheep fence next to the Borders campsite, and the leaking kettle.So I think now is the time.

A CD and booklet released in March 2023 by the sound artist Philip Samartzis from Melbourne, Australia, on the country's experimental label Room3.Includes 40 field recordings.The booklet contains essays and photographs.Below is a commentary by the author himself. "Atmospheres and Disturbances" documents the changes in highland ecosystems caused by rising global temperatures.This work is based on fieldwork done at the High Altitude Research Station in Jungfraujoch, Switzerland. Over the course of four weeks, I placed various recording devices around the station and in the surrounding alpine environment to record natural, man-made, and geophysical forces.This project offers a new encounter with the endangered alpine environment and enhances our perception and engagement with the concepts of place, community and environmental dissonance.Fieldwork used a variety of microphones to record different acoustic, spatial, atmospheric, and vibration-based phenomena.Omnidirectional microphones recorded wind, snow, ice, and social, material, and industrial sounds emanating from nearby train terminans and observatories.Hydrophones were also placed in water and ice to record the physical sounds that resonate in the frozen environment of the Jungfraujoch and adjacent glaciers.Man-made sounds produced by tourists, transportation, and recreational sports are documented as permeating the entire landscape.Accelerometers are attached to various surfaces and structures to record solid vibrations caused by high velocity winds and melting and freezing processes.Accelerometer recordings provide a clear representation of stress and fatigue occurring within the material structure of buildings and infrastructure. "Atmospheres and Disturbances" is designed to allow the audience to experience the endangered alpine ecosystem by immersing themselves in an extreme environment.See more Room5 releases /// Click here to see more Room4 releases...

*Available only at our store in Japan This is a record released in March 2023 by Brazilian sound artist Adam Matschulat from British experimental label Calling Cards Publishing in a limited edition of 3 copies.Includes two self-documentary musique concretes about places and family, recorded in his hometown of Formosa. Comes with DL code and insert.Below is an explanation by the label. Formosa, composer Adam Matschulat's first major work under his full name, is a deeply personal album of field recordings of kitchens, churches, forests and farms expressed in musique concrète structures. "This is the place I call home," says Matschulat of Formosa. “I used to spend all my summer vacations here. It was a place where I felt safe, a refuge from the city life that I found difficult. and a reverence for the magic of this place."Two sidelong compositions include moments of intimacy between his families (his mother speaks German to his grandfather), the singing of the church. , which includes those recorded in Formosa, such as the sounds of a family barbecue.It also contains latent allusions to life and death, such as the cloud of flies, which suggests decay and return to the soil. "This album is about death and about the forest, about the cycle of the land and our little beings around it," he says. “My grandfather is the strongest man I have ever known. It got so bad he couldn't even hold an accordion. He had lost his sense of purpose, and I wanted to explore that feeling in my recordings."This album consists of two large songs. The first explores the connection between death and land and is built around the warp and weft of place and dialogue.Seen from a distance, field recordings of farm work in progress, conversations around the table, German songs shimmering as the accordion stops on a bed of night bug sounds, hymns once removed by the static electricity of the tape, like It looks like a sonic symbol of remembrance or psychological detachment.If you listen closely, you will notice the skillful manipulation of collage and electro-acoustic. Matschulat's family farm is surrounded by native Atlantic forest, and the trees are protected, so many of the recordings were made under this canopy. As a child, Matschulat said he felt as if he had crossed a threshold, and felt the magic and horror contained in this environment. "In Formosa we went into the woods and recorded. There are snakes and all kinds of things that you don't want to step on. Formosa is in the south of Brazil and his mother's family lived in Prussia in the 200s. His great-grandfather built a church there, which still stands today, and the congregation sings in German hymnbooks from the 2s. My grandfather worked while playing the accordion, farming as the head of a pious village surrounded by forests. Formosa's second track is about life, expressed in the form of her love for the potato salad whose recipe is on the sleeve note and which her grandmother has a vivid memory of making at her family's barbecues. It has been.The song begins with the strange sound of a boiled egg being put into a bowl of water, then the phone rings, sinks, plates, cutlery, mayonnaise and potatoes, and the sounds of a home.It is a peaceful family scene where time passes quietly until the meal is ready. The two works in Formosa are meditations on everyday connections with home and family, and more broadly on concepts of life, death and belonging.This album creates a psychological atlas about the meaning of our everyday sound world, the teleology of places, safety and home.Click here for labels and other works /// Click here to see more Calling Cards...
