VA – DJ Harvey Is The Sound Of Mercury Rising Vol II [PIKESLP002]

Almost two years on from the release of his brilliant “The Sound of Mercury Rising” compilation, DJ Harvey returns with another brilliant selection of tracks he’s championed at Pikes in Ibiza. As with its predecessor, volume two offers a giddy skip through the dustier corners of his notoriously eclectic and off-kilter record selection. Along the way, he offers up chiming, synth-heavy Balearic classics (Mandy Smith, Hugh Mane), weirdo European disco (Marta Acuna), evocative electronic soundscapes (System Olympia), blue-eyed synth-pop (Pamela Nivens), drum machine-powered Middle Eastern madness (Switchdance’s sublime “Arabian Ride”) and a swathe of tasty contemporary cuts (the jaunty jazz-funk of Midlife, Das Komplex’s ace “Slap”, Nu Guinea’s splendid “Je Vulesse” and Peaking Lights remix of Land of Light being the highlights).

Kendal – Manifesto EP [MST042]

Moustache Records invites Kendal, a French producer based in Toulouse . His 4 tracker hits Manifesto EP bring us a dystopian italo vibe from the past, present and the Nofuture where the flesh merging with the machine. The A1 track called: Ultimo It’s a tale about a world where jesus turns the water into proseco and the preacher jams on his 707 to bring new believers into italo disco church. A2: Profondo rosso: Humanity as gone. One spaceship drifts into space seeking the new promised land. Maybe this big red planet with its lush jungle. B1 Giallo Inferno: She put on her favourite blue velvet dress and her red lipstick. She’s alone in the mansion. Black leather gloves is hidding in the dark B2 Corpo Meccanico: When Deckard chasing some fuckin renegade replicant over Los Angeles 2019 that what it turn up loud on his radio. Perfect OST for cyborg’s killing spree.
