Harmonious Thelonious – Background Noise [KM051]

Harmonious Thelonious returns to the Kontra-Musik family with an absolute gem of a record. This is everything we want dance music to be: characterful, playful and impossibly funky. Harmonious Thelonious is a master of crafting organic sounding rhythms but arranging them in a manner that reminds one of a 1970’s car factory. Primal pulses running through modern assembly lines, gears and pistons covered in green lianas. The result is a perfect symbiosis between living tissue and mechanical parts – dance music for primitive cyborgs.

OTTO – Stimmungen EP [ORGA01]

The conjectural wedding band OTTO is expanding its organ soundtrack madness. With its third record, it delivers sonic solutions for all sorts of moods, ranging from dark and stormy to smooth and suave. “Rhythmus” stands out with abstract, repetitive vocals in German, ready to land in a club somewhere near you. This project is supported by Orgaton, the society for the promotion of organ music.

DanyB returns with the next intergalactic installment of Jupiter Dance. Spring-boarding from the Jupiter Dance radio show, which takes a regular tour through the lesser known avenues of Synth Pop, Space Disco & Italo. Here we have another three worked up renditions of awesome international obscurities Yugoslavian synth pop a’la League Unlimited Orchestra from the early 80’s shares a side with some wigged out Italian synth-pop Prog-Rock. While the A reworks and overdubs a Japanese locomotive synth shinkansen for strobe-lit commutes.
