  1. The Unknown Cases - "Memo Walk"
  2. Projekt X - "Ich Brauch Ein Bischen Zärtlichkeit"
  3. Dominik Von Senger - "Track Of Sample"
  4. Francesco Agostini - "Ba-Ba-Ba"
  5. Die Art - "A.N."
  6. Stefan Thelen & Olek Gelba - "Der Weg Nach Innen (Aussen)"
Review: Emotional Rescue returns to the post war music of West Germany and the work of Dominik Von Senger and his cohorts based around the Dunkelziffer project. This special "Sampler" EP of recordings was produced as their part in Cologne's Stollwerck art complex, that acted as a home and inspiration to their musical experiments. Based within the disused industrial warehouses spaces of Stollwerck, a mix of post-hippies, punks and anarchists created a community within that fed off each other's artistic endeavours. While given space rent free, a requirement for the musicians centered around Dunkelziffer, The Phantom Band and The Unknown Cases, was to provide a collection of music for release on a compilation album to highlight its work. Released in 1985, the "Off Record No.1 Stollwerck Sampler" LP contained a collage of post-punk, krautrock, dub and avant-garde music and here on this special 6 track 12", a condensed Stollwerck Sampler EP is presented some 30 years later. Starting with the almost undiscovered Memo Walk by The Unknown Cases (see EES016), here they eschew their afro-cosmic sound and turn in a deep jazz fusion funk jam that wouldn't look out of place during Miles' "On The Corner" period, except with a krautrock metronomic kick. One of the challenges of this Sampler was what to leave out. The tracks that make up the rest of the EPs first side highlight what the project was really about. The one-off Project X and Dominik Von Senger's wonderful solo piece, Track Of Sample, are the sounds of a collective in full hair down, experimental productions where all is thrown in to the melting pot and see where this goes. The second side is more of the same and could easily of appeared on the Dunkelziffer "Retrospective" (ERC007/8/9) reissues. However, this shouldn't be dismissed lightly. This is mesmeric music that captures a time and place perfectly. Whether Die Art or A.N really ever existed beyond this studio concept is irrelevant. The Stollwerck Sampler EP captures that moment, for this moment.

  1. Mexican Margarita (Tonovi remix) (5:09)
  2. Mexican Margarita (original album mix) (4:38)
  3. Mapa De Soledad (Len Leise remix) (5:30)
  4. Mapa De Soledad (original album mix) (4:24)
Review: Gurevitsch could make a nylon string weep at 20 paces, such is his finger picking charm. Here we find him delivering two immaculate instrumentals where the background rhythm is simply a backbone for his spell-binding playmanship. "Mexican Margarita" is a frenzy of emotion and Latin passion while "Mapa De Soledad" is a much more subdued, emotional affair where Jacob's picking is complemented by perfectly accordion and blues harp leads. Remix-wise Tonovi (who previously remixed Jacob on MFD a few years back) adds a dubby, synth-shimmering twist while Len Leise ensures the Balearic factor of Jacob's skill is brought to a zenith with sandy toed charm.

  2. Intr O Cafenea (5:05)
  3. Ne Am Despartit (4:20)
  4. Fereastra Usa (5:10)
Review: Raze de Soare bears all the signifiers of Future Nuggets' trademark "maneletronics" - taking cues from the bustling but traditional Romanian l?ut?reasc? - the Oriental motifs, the nostalgia and longing, mixed with 20th century electronics, a sort of psychedelic 70ties or 80ties chilled sound, starting off with dope bass and squeaky synth sounds. It could be made in the retromania of present day, as well as dug out from the vaults of Romanian synth pop. - Easterndaze

  1. Madrugada (7:26)
  2. The Big Boobs (6:38)
  3. African Obsession (11:55)
Review: Uber bring the new Mushrooms Project EP. A slight diversion for Uber into the cosmic afro infused musical stylings that the Mushrooms boys are masters. Madrugada's tribal energy is reminiscent of Tony Esposito or Tullio de Picopo. The Italian afrobalearic groove that we at Uber love so much. The Big Boobs is a slower more contemplative track, still holding onto the percussive feel but with hints of the east. I suspect the title is influenced by last summers trip to the Great Outdoors in Birmingham. Finally we come to the epic musical journey that is African Obsession. Continuing the fine Italian tradition of tribal dance music this is a tight superbly produced trip into afrocosmiche. 15 minutes of hypnotic beauty. Uber hitting the spot again.

  1. Gianni Bella - "Dolce Luna" (part 1) (9:57)
  2. Moana Pozzi - "L'Ultima Notte" (4:37)
  3. Ivano Fossati & Oscar Prudente - "Gil (Voglia Di Terra)" (3:22)
Review: Kenneth Bager's Music For Dreams label has been dishing out chillout and Balearic music for over ten years now, and summer 2015 wasn't exactly going to be an exception. For his latest outing, Bager has chosen Leo Mas to bring together a three-tracker representing the Balearic islands' charismatic sounds; "Dolce Luna (Part 1)" by Italy's Gianni Bella represents the A side with a funky disco beat reminiscent of Pino Daniele, while the B side is taken over by Moana Pozzi's "L'Ultima Notte", a slow and soulful kind of number, and "Gil (Voglia Di Terra)" by Ivano Fossati and Oscar Prudente, a lovely guitar and flute mashup over a subtle beat and gentle basslines.

  1. Leonardo Ceccanti - "(It's A) Long Way" (6:41)
  2. Leonardo Ceccanti - "Cosmic Summer" (6:31)
  3. Plastic Fantastic - "Here Comes The Sun" (Beatfanatic remix) (10:00)
Review: A two-sided affair from Aficionado upon which we see faces old and new. Leonardo takes the lead; new the label, within seconds of hearing the sleazy, low-slapping bassline and purring vocals of "(It's A) Long Way" and the dreamy star-gazing synth arpeggios, epic guitar solo and filmic drums of "Cosmic Summer" you'll understand why he's also appeared on Claremont and Is It Balearic? in the past. Finally Swedish nu disco champion Beatfanatic gets busy on a Plastic Fantastic classic, laying down a percussion-focused house number that's up there with Ashely Beedle's finest in the groove department.

  1. Horizon (5:45)
  2. Night Motel (6:19)
  3. Horizon (The Project club remix) (6:18)
  4. Horizon (Maricopa remix) (6:19)
Review: Hot on the heels of his Whiskey Disco EP, Mathieu Cle continues to the soundtrack the summer of his life with two more blissful, shimmering slices of Balearica. "Horizon" unravels by way of lush breezy pads and slippery guitars and easy-flowing keys that gradually take more and more of the spotlight, like a welcomed ship sailing closer and closer. "Night Motel" is takes us deeper into the evening with light skippy breaks and subtle samplecraft. Remix-wise The Project Club deconstruct "Horizon" and rebuild it with the same crisp psych rock tones as Pacqua might do while Maricopa goes right back to the late 80s with full emphasis on the synthetic strings and flutes. Paradise is open for business once again...

  1. Bertone Starman (Secret Circuit remix)
  2. I Recommend Starman (Black Deer re-edit)
  3. Time For Thick (Not Waving remix)
  4. The Music You Hear At Sea World & Never Forget (Tropical Hi-Fi remix)
Review: Featuring 4 producers that cross musical spheres is the labels way and again roster members are handed the keys to the treasure while welcoming other, less unknown producers a chance to highlight their aural visions.
Starting with the ubiquitous Secret Circuit, here following up his blissed out releases for the label with a first remix. Respecting Luke's leftfield production, but layering his trademark guitar work with a motorik groove, distant harmonic bells and uplifting keys that bring the friends and producers music in a Balearic tandem.
This is followed with William Burnett's Black Deer alias taking the wonderful, but sadly short I Recommend Starman and coming up with an extended edit that allows this modern krautrock masterpiece to truly shine as it should. Simple yet perfect.
On the flip is Not Waving's Alessio Natalizia with a beautiful take on the loved-up, R&B meets Aphex MDMA rush of Time For Thick. Totally replaying the song himself, it is the light industrial percussion and repeating keys that take the track on a journey to the skies.
Finally then, the EP comes back down to earth and closes with new label member, Australia's mysterious Tropical Hi-Fi. Taking the brooding ambience of The Music Hear At Sea World And Never Forget and turning in a drone meets field-recording masterwork.
