    Ryu no Nukegara

    [engl] 7FO: pronounced “nana f o” in English, “nana” being seven. Ryu no Nukegara: “dragon’ s husk” . These are the only difficulties you’ ll encounter here. This is warm, friendly, very relaxed music, very “understandable” and yet intriguing, sure to appeal to fans of electronic ambient, dub and chill-out music, as well as artists like Haruomi Hosono, Captain Ganja, La Monte Young, Equiknoxx and Tapes. The Osaka-based 7FO combines groovily sparse electronic percussion with similarly sparse dub-feel synth bass, as well as pentatonic synth and steel pan melodies, the latter with an intriguing Okinawa/Sunda/Malay feel. Sparkling dub-influenced processing and thoughtful mixing gives us a music which is trans-oceanic, warm, and enveloping. Following releases on RVNG, Bokeh Versions and Metron, Ryu no Nukegara is available on digital, CD and 12” LP, featuring a suite of four tracks and the 20-minute title track, whose titular dragon is Asian: a potent symbol of water, strength and good luck.

    Musique De France

    Mit ihrer berauschenden Mischung aus westlicher Elektronik und östlichen Klängen und Gesang hat das französische Kollektiv Acid Arab in den vergangenen Jahren die Clubs dieser Welt erobert. Gegründet im Jahr 2012 von den DJs Guido Minisky und Hervé Carvalho, hat Acid Arab geduldig seinen ganz eigenen Style herausgearbeitet, immer beeinflusst von zahlreichen Kollegen aus ganz Nordafrika und dem Nahen Osten. Hinein geboren in den Melting Pot Paris ist ihr Konzept, einen Raum für die arabische Kultur in der Welt der zeitgenössischen elektronischen Musik zu schaffen, naheliegend. Aus dem DJ-Duo ist eine vollständige Band geworden, als Pierrot Casanova, Nicolas Borne und der sensationelle algerische Keyboarder Kenzi Bourras dazustießen. Ihr erstes Album definiert ihre Vorstellung von interkulturellem Austausch, fernab von allen Klischees. Es ist keine Collage, nicht einmal eine Fusion. Es stammt aus Begegnungen auf Augenhöhe zwischen verschiedenen Welten, zwischen Instrumenten, Rhythmen, melodischen Stillungen, musikalischen Technologien und vor allem: zwischen Menschen.

    SOS / The Sweet Decay

    [engl] In true Disposable Music style we conclude our successful second series by combining two very different global music projects from totally different eras and cultural climates. Andrzej Korzynski’s French funk inspired lost 1974 soundtrack to a Polish crime film directed by a Russian filmmaker shares vinyl sides with a compendium of modern field recording from Thailand and Pakistan assembled by UK born producer and Sound Of Wonder/Paradise Bangkok compiler Chris Menist. Sharing evident stylistic trademarks with other classic 70s crime/thriller soundtracks such as Gainsbourg/Vannier’s Cannabis, Don Ellis’ The French Connection, Alan Tew’s The Hanged Man and Morricone’s Le Serpent, Andrzej Korzynski’s score for this obscure Polish only weekly crime series SOS (directed by Janusz Morgenstern) might well have disappeared into the annals of lost communist pop culture if it wasn’t for Finders Keepers privileged plunders in to the vaults of this very important and previously under exposed soundtrack genius. Drawing further stylistic similarities with Alain Goraguer’s oft-cited La Planete Sauvage soundtrack, the fact that Korzynski had previously worked in the same studios as Ennio Morricone and Jean-Claude Vannier in the late 1960s (before being forbidden to travel under the Soviet regime) becomes evident on these golden era 1974 recordings providing another indispensable inclusion to European soundtrack collectors and fans of the genre in a well ploughed field. The Awkward Corners project was recorded at different locations in Asia, in domestic environments in Islamabad and the Bangkok apartment of producer and regular Finders Keepers co-compiler Chris Menist. These tracks were put together over a three year period and involved different musicians who Chris met in both Pakistan (like the great vocalist Arieb Azhar) and Thailand (jazz legend Ralph Thomas lives permanently in Chiang Mai in the north). Under the name Awkward Corners Menist created textures from recordings wandering round the streets, or he would put together a groove primarily using either drums, percussion or a Dr. Rhythm drum machine, and the musicians would react in an improvisational sense, such as Moez Akbar who plays the Iranian seetara on the albums title track. Most tracks were done in one or two takes and mixed later in Nottingham where Paul Isherwood also added some crucial touches on bass. The Sweet Decay is an audio sketchbook of five years living and working in South Asia, and a nod of thanks to some of the great people Chris was lucky enough to meet whilst living there.

    Clan Caiman

    [engl] The music of Clan Caimán is primitive and hypnotic. It is located in the pre-rock era and from there, it proposes a different evolution path for music from the 1950s to present day. Like a different musical development in a parallel timeline. Gamelan, Hawaiian music, surf, exotica, rainforest or aquatic; these elements make up the palette which constructs a mystic and profound music that seeks ancestral connection. Formed in 2016 by musician, composer and producer Emilio Haro looking to create music generated by group dynamics, Clan Caimán differs from his past two solo albums (“Panorámico” in 2007 and “Estrambótico” in 2012, both on Radiaciones Armónicas) in that these were studio work and not meant to be played live. The quintet's enigmatic sound is built upon the kalimbafón, an instrument created by Haro using several kalimbas, Diego Voloschin's wild and hypnotic percussion (no cymbals, no snare), Gonzalo Cordoba's lap steel and baritone guitar, Facundo Gomez's psychedelic guitar tones and Claudio Iuliano's dry and percussive bass sound. This debut album contains eight anachronistic and oddly familiar compositions that range from introspection to trance, tracing their own sonic landscape.

    Move On Move On

    Das Projekt „Move On Move On“ ist die Metapher des sich Voranbewegens, Vorwärtsstrebens, der Entwicklung, des sich Herantasten ebenso, wie den Rausch der Geschwindigkeit betreffend! „Move On Move On“ ist Aufforderungscharakter und Feststellung zugleich. Das Unterwegssein und die Zielsetzung des Sich-Fortbewegens verschmelzen zu einer Charakteristik des Nicht-Stehenbleibens. Die Aufmerksamkeit auf die Veränderung ist das große Rahmenthema dieses Projekts sowie ein Charakteristikum der Arbeiten von Johannes Dees überhaupt. Anlass zur Reflexion ist sowohl der Drive als auch das Innehalten. Zustande kam das Projekt „Move On Move On“ durch Freundschaften:

    Music for Alien Ears

    [engl] Martoc, aka Martin O'Cuthbert, has been making alien and alienated synth-pop in the UK since the post-punk period. This compilation gathers six songs released on seven-inch EPs during the years 1978-80, plus four songs released during the first decade of this century. The tracks show a distinctive stylistic unity, inspired by fellow spirits like Fad Gadget, The Normal, John Foxx and Kraftwerk; across the decades Martoc has maintained both his close relationship with his synthesizers and an arms-length relationship with society, resulting in an appealingly quirky and individualistic iciness, informed also by his love of science fiction writers such as J. G. Ballard and Iain Banks. One of the songs included here, "B.E.M.S.", was chosen as Record Of The Year by John Lydon in New Musical Express in 1978; John Peel was also a supporter. Despite these and other accolades, Martoc and his simultaneously catchy yet disturbing music has hovered resolutely under the radar, an alien craft avoiding detection by an unaware and perhaps unprepared world. Gathered together here, this collection of tracks offers an excellent opportunity investigate an alien explorer, on CD or vinyl.

    Rocket Robert

    [engl] Those who've dirtied their fingers searching high and low for analog synth nuggets can rejoice at the arrival of under- the- radar synthesizer maverick ''Rocket'' Robert Moore. Less a reissue than an exhumation- what with a scant, hand- screened 142 copies produced in 1982 that circulated little outside the confines of Oregon state- Rocket Robert drifts in the backward- looking sounds of early synth innovators, while equally mining the kraut- tinged moments of punk- era instro synth explorers and the first breaths of synth- pop, rather than carrying similarities to the ''New Wave'' that was then talking hold of the masses. Issued by Moore's own Salem, Oregon- based Future Records in 1982, his eponymous debut is simultaneously light- hearted and shot- though with ominous oscillations and offers up a darkly- throbbing, other- worldly vibe that is sure to ensnare synth- heads, beat- diggers and those searching the margins of the private- press alike.

    Logo Presentation Reel 1985 / Octabred

    [engl] A very special Disposable Music edition comprising two programmes of lost early 80s North American synthesiser music from American/Italian Buchla pioneer Suzanne Ciani and Alaska’s only dedicated electronic collective Clone. Comprising of instrumental versions of Ciani’s much coveted cassette-only electronic advertising portfolio (featuring Atari music and power tool jingles) alongside a Clone archive of exclusive Anchorage one-off radio synth sessions and theme tunes, this release represents another Disposable Music milestone bringing lost embryonic electro and proto-synth pop from a place beyond the outskirts of the oblivious record industry. Quite possibly one of our most requested releases on any format and one of Finders Keepers proudest vault digging moments to date, the limited release repackaging of Suzanne Ciani’s original cassette portfolio of electronic advertisement music harboured some of her most radical and uninhibited experiments - unconsciously redefining synth pop and electro from behind American TV screens whilst totally evading the radar of the record industry. These commissions originally made for companies such as Atari, a major power tool firm, soft drinks companies and printed publications, provided a new canvas and challenging directive for Suzanne who would deploy her maverick expertise with some of the most experimental electronic instruments and forward thinking visual/sound artists. As one of the only female composers in the global advertising industry Ciani’s results represented a small sound revolution in the world of production music forging deep nostalgic memories of the would-be electronic-music generation in its wide-eyed infancy. Finally for their precious Disposable Music series, Finders Keepers are now able to present these originally truncated TV and radio recordings in their full-length forms mastered from original tapes including much coveted instrumental versions. Including 15 tracks in total these original recordings are presented here in a new wider musical context as pieces of early synth based pop music, designed specifically for widespread commercial consumption whilst retaining veritable maverick integrity an attribute that quickly diminished at the hand of less adventurous, less sensitive and more complacent production music composers. Finding a perfect bedfellow on this early synthesiser based Disposable Music edition and adding weight to one of our most exciting musical partnerships of recent years these newly excavated early 1980s recordings from the Alaska based Clone synthesiser collective (see Harmonitalk CACHE04) are the results of the group’s wide library of weekly synth jam sessions primarily recorded for band leader (and electronic harmonica soloist) Gary Sloan’s weekly radio show The Import Hour, which specialised in playing the earliest slim pickings of global new wave and electronic music to the station’s Anchorage fan base. Relying on the very records and tapes that actually made it over to Alaska in 1980, Gary and Clone would compose and create their own music to fill the gaps providing us with a long archival shelf of C60 and C90 masters to cement their legacy of perhaps the only dedicated synthesiser initiative to exist in this extreme North American state.

    Deutsche Elektronische Musik. Experimental German Rock And Electronic Musik 1971-1981 Vol. 3

    Diese aktuelle Ausgabe der erfolgreichen Reihe "Deutsche Elektronische Musik" von Soul Jazz führt erneut in die faszinierende Welt der Krautrock-Ära mit Kultbands wie Neu!, Cluster, Popol Vuh, La Düsseldorf oder Agitation Free, berücksichtigt aber auch weniger bekannte Künstler wie Michael Bundt, Bröselmaschine, Dronsz, Klaus Weiss und andere. Die Musik reicht von den introvertierten Klanglandschaften von Hans Joachim Roedelius über die eckigen und futuristischen elektronischen Experimente von Pyrolator oder Achim Reichel bis hin zum Proto-Punk von La Düsseldorf und dem schweren, progressiven und kosmischen Rock von Missus Beastly, Niagara oder Dyzan. Die Aufnahmen aus den 70er- und frühen 80er-Jahren waren ohne Frage zukunftsweisend. Deutsche Elektronik- und Rockgruppen schufen auf der Suche nach einer neuen musikalischen Identität, die nicht auf angloamerikanische Traditionen aufbaute, eigenwillige und fortschrittliche Werke. "Deutsche Elektronische Musik 3" erscheint auf extra schwerem Dreifach-Vinyl.

    Deutsche Elektronische Musik. Experimental German Rock And Electronic Musik 1972-83 Vol. 2

    Die "Wiederentdeckung" von Krautrock dauert mittlerweile länger als dessen Produktionszeit. Seit Julian Copes literarischem Reiseführer über die "Great Kosmische Music" (1995) erleben die experimentellen, in den späten Sechzigern und Siebzigern in der alternativen Musikszene fabrizierten Sounds zwischen Electro, Prog Rock und Ambient einerseits und Gegenkultur und Drogenexperiment andererseits Revival um Revival. In der Vielzahl der oft nur nach oberflächlichen Kriterien zusammengestellten Kompilationen ragen die kenntnisreich und liebevoll editierten Sampler von Soul Jazz weit heraus. Daher ist es sehr zu begrüßen, dass "Deutsche Elektronische Musik. Experimental German Rock And Electronic Musik 1972-83" nach 2010 eine Neuauflage erfährt. Über die Edition schrieb der "Guardian" bei deren Ersterscheinen: "Der definitive Leitfaden der außergewöhnlichsten Musik der Welt." Die gefragte, aber längst vergriffene Veröffentlichung mit Stücken von Cluster, Can, Faust, Popol Vuh, Neu!, Amon Düül, Harmonia, La Düsseldorf, Tangerine Dream, Kollectiv oder Ibliss bildete seinerzeit den Auftakt zu einer mittlerweile auf drei Sets angewachsenen Miniserie. Während die remasterte Nachpressung in digitaler Form als Doppel-CD mit großem, 36-seitigem Booklet erscheint, kommt die schwergewichtige Vinylausgabe verteilt auf zwei Doppel-LPs im Klappcover auf den Markt.
