bec5543195 House music broke through in 1987, at the same time when AIDS arrived in France with the first contamination peak in gay and drug addict circles.

Prins Thomas - Prins Thomas 5 (Gold Print,BPInner,2LP+ WAV+MP3) - New 2017 Album -

Nov 29, 2017 ptm001After the slightly more conceptual "Principe del Norte"album, "5" takes two steps forward and one step back
collecting a batch of tracks that was recorded right after it's preceder and in tandem with the recent "Square One"album with Bjørn Torske.
A "freedom"album of sorts, beyond the slightly misleading album opener "Here comes the band" there's a variety in these tracks tracing inspiration from 35 years (unhealthy)obsession with all things "good music" played enthusiastically.
"5" also marks

KUF - Universe

Nov 22, 2017 MACROM55LPKUF create emotion-laden dialogues across layers of time and dimensions of sound. Voices recorded in private are chopped up and brought out center-stage to sing with beats hammered out right here and now. Glowing synths push forward. Basslines rise to grab the melodic role of a track while a vowel is truncated and locked into a grid, driving the rhythm. Voices move within the frame of a sample, performed by hands pushing keys, guided by the ear, immersed in a trio session’s deep flow… A vortex of quirky hands, responsive ears and glowing circuits. Since Thomas A.Read the whole story

The Cyclist - Sapa Inca Delirium (2LP+Download)

Oct 24, 2017
hypeple10Having given us a taster of things to come back in September 2016, with the ‘Pressing Matters’ single, The Cyclist returns to Hypercolour with a brand new, full length album. And as the title suggests, “Sapa Inca Delirium” leans heavily on South American mysticism, not just musically, but in the visual imagery that the eleven-track album paints so well across its various tempos and rhythms. From the tropical burst of mood setting opener, “Go Back” to the steamy and pacey percussive flow of “Inhale/Exhale” which features regular

Raphael Danilo Feat. George Pappos — “Strangers, Nikkname, Innellea Rmxs” on PAULS MUSIQUE / FREERIDE MILLENIUM

DJ: “XLR8R: The EP lands with an original cut, titled "Strangers," and two remixes from German pair Innellea and Cologne artist Nikkname, both of whom flip the cut into enchanting interpretations. Danilo and Pappos' original takes cues from their home area on the edges of the Greek mountain Parnassos and the ancient sanctuary of Delphi and all three cuts focus on the stunning sound design and spiritual synth work from the Greek producers. Amevicious (La dame Noir / Nein / Blindetonation / Play Pal/ The Exquisite Pai) 'Un cool single mais trop different pour intĂ©grĂ© mon dj set' Juan Soto (Nang / Electrique) 'what a beauty thanks a lot for this Raphael and George <3 This is something to contemplate with your eyes closed and allow your mind to go away for nearly 9 minutes into a deep introspective journey... ' Duncan Gray (Tici Taci) 'I'll be giving the Innellea remix a try, thank you!' Somerville & Wilson (Hell Yeah / ISM) 'Beautiful piece of electronic music! The Original does it the most for us.
