Another great Italian producer is with us for this release. Billy Bogus, the boss from Pizzico Records with his “Disco Lambro ’76” a massive spoken word house piece. The long vocal sample about free festivals, hard drugs and 70’s counterculture gets chopped, sliced and layered upon a big funk house beat. Then Johnny Paguro takes the piece into 80’s House zone, while The Love Supreme pitch the track down to 110bpm and explore a more kraut-balearic side of the cut. On The B side we get atmospheric with “Older”. Sax stabs, echoed percussions and a moody vocal sample are underlined by a driving slow dancefloor beat. The Kael Misko rework keeps the mood and turns the track into a club killer.
In collaboration with our friends at Mamadesignlab we will do a label showcase at the party write aloud: a live performance with videos, DJs, and installations.
Next tuesday we will be celebrating the opening of the Design Week and its usual load of parties, special events and great music with a Mad On The Moon Label Party at Serendeepity, the location of our new recording studio and operational base. We will have a good party with our friends and with good music provided by some of us here…
The Love Supreme + The Heels Of Love
see you there.
Who are The Barking Dogs? One year ago we released their debut 12″, since then they have continued to grow as both producers and label owners, with recent releases on Gomma and Rush Hour and their imprint of edits releasing incredible tracks. They are also pushing House Music like no one else, throwing parties and managing the best music shop you can find around here.
For this project they rework two tracks by Jessie Evans, adding their producing skills to her post-punk sax and vocals lines and giving us two old school burning, sweaty killers. The pack is complete with remixes from a couple of hot names on the scene. Altz with his enormous, MAD remix (something really unique, we where stunned when we first listened to this one) and the deep acid version from Rune Lindbaek & Mental Overdrive.
There’s life on the moon… Three new artists on the label, a little taster of their producing skills.
Lord Of The Isles with ‘Laser Dream Sequence’, a nine minute long voyage into the deepness of cosmic space. ‘Problems’ by MSB in the Ilya Santana remix version grabs the psychedelic guitars of the original, adds deep synth pads and a steady beat and turns it into a club hit. ‘Il Treno Dei Dannati’, a classic Italo track with a live feel from Disco Volante Records’ Label Manager, Cloned In Vatican.
Exclusive release on Junodownload >December 6th
We have been busy working at our next releases lately, that means: the new Barking Dogs 12″ with remixes by Altz and Rune Lindbaek + Mental Overdrive, The Holiday In Arabia Remixes release featuring Simone Fedi and Crimea X, an EP of new artists on the label with an Ilya Santana remix, the new single from Marbeya Sound (they’ll be playing a live show opening for Lindstrom, Nov 12 in San Francisco, check it here) with remixes by Nozaki and The Beat Broker (he too will be playing SF alongside Tensnake Nov 14, check it here),
Made by a pair of sonic junkies infatuated with space and water. Give them a broom and they’ll make you a rocket. In this case we gave them a synth and they created high tides. Being raised in Mexico city gave them all they needed to know about musical travel. Put the listener in a time and place.
Abe and Alan arrive at Mad On the Moon after two brilliant releases on Eskimo and Tirk, and for us they produced Blind Cause and Gansta Reedflex, two balearic tracks Inspired by latin seashell percussion, goat string flamenco and meteor grooves, there is no way in hell they wont make you take off.
The 12″ will be out in July.
Multiplicity is the password in the Ajello project.
Sounds ingredients are a concentrated of the different experiences from the two members Luca “DJ Rocca” Roccatagliati and Fabrizio “Taver” Tavernelli: Electro, New-Wave, Italo-Disco, Chicago House, Disco, Neurofunk, Eurodance, Space Sounds.
“2000 Lightyears From Home” is a slow track, but the boys conjure up thick beats reminiscent of early electro and an acid bassline that flows down smoothly. The Remix is by Altair Nouveau, who we recently heard with a great work on DFA/Solardisco. He delivers a Moroder influenced dancefloor oriented version. On the B side is “Come Back”, a direct track with a sure effect on the dancefloor, house beat and a super groovy bassline. The Heels Of Love remix goes into old school, with sampled and stretched vocals and a crunchy dirty beat coming directly from 80’s drumachines.
The 12″ vinyl will be out 20th April
The Heels Of Love, the new Milan based duo born from the joint between “two disco reprimands with an unhealthy penchant for slap bass, synths and vintage drum machines” has made a lot of noise lately with just a couple of works. After debuting here on MOM with a huge remix that made its way up to Beats In Space and TSUGI’s 2009 “Best Of” compilation mixed by Cosmo Vitelli they have had the first official release on David Griffiths’ (the man behind Jisco Music) new label, “Under The Shade”. This one has sent them right into the chart of almost every known DJ of the scene.
“Quiet Please” is a slow, but groovy, rhythmic, guitar driven piece of psychedelic disco reminescent of early House tracks.
The original unleashes two hugely dynamic and killer remixes. On the B side the Ajello guys keep the guitar line and build a totally original Piano House version while Fabrizio Mammarella works on the arrangement and develop the original in a disco dub style.
In the shops from 09/12/2009
