Vincent – Fast Forward [MFM024]

Music From Memory return, this time with four tracks drawn from Virgil ‘Vincent’ Work Jnr’s little-known cassette only debut from 1987. This album reflects a more stripped back and raw musical approach from the St. Louis musician. The ‘Fast Forward’ sessions grew out of a series of late night jams with Vincent’s brother Scott who was then living in Kansas. With nothing planned in advance and no written music involved in the final recording sessions, the songs that would form ‘Fast Forward’ very much evolved out of improvisation. As Virgil himself explains, the title of the album in fact came about because it felt “as if I had fast forwarded to a different sound”. Although the album received a good response from local radio DJs and music magazines, the album sadly never gained enough momentum or demand for a further run of copies. Fast forward to 2017, exactly thirty years are their production, and Music From Memory are delighted to be able to finally make Vincent’s music commercially available again.

Club Paradiso – Panoramica [MGCP001]

An hypnotic and groovy journey that starts off with ‘Batongo’, a tribal and exotic dancefloor banger that will let the sweat out of the listener in zero time. ‘Espresso Notte’ is filled with organic house grooves, dreamy pads and a synth that tells you a story that could go on and on and on. ‘Gulliver’ and ‘Litoraneo’ pick up from there and bring the sound scenario down heavy with 70s-80s disco sounds and boogie, transporting mind and body to a warm and mellow planet. Panoramica reflects perfectly Club Pradiso’s goal of mixing past and future, an über-cool EP that is both club and disco friendly.

Pussycat – Le Chat [BST-X021]

Limited edition remastered reissue of an obsure Italian Balearic Disco song produced and arranged by Victorio Pezzolla. The plus on this limited edition reissue is that the production is directly handled by the former producer to obtain a more accurate sound compared from the first release.
