Weapons of Desire are back with the next installment of raw percussion and the dirty bass lines that we have all grown to know and love. Five brilliant 707 and 808 driven techno stompers from the eminently proficient Craig Stainton over two sides of wax in both his Mantra and Myriadd production guises.

Perseus Traxx – Goddesses Of Inspiration II [FLR012]

18 months after Perseus Traxx brought us his first E.P, dedicated to four of the nine Muses of ancient Greece, Flight Recorder now brings you the second installment dedicated to four more Muses, on “Goddesses Of Inspiration II”. The feel is the same as before with jagged cutting tones jammed live then edited down. Heavy synths and scattered drums perform an ode characterising the appropriate Muses, as tangled wires and a pair of hands wrench the overload of inspiration they give from basic machines. Once again Perseus’ release on Flight Recorder is a unique set of acid-free sonic experiments, that sometimes feel as cold and edgy, as they do warm and carefree.

Iron Blu – Science Probe Vessel [FLR011]

Iron Blu is a UK producer and broadcaster on the mighty Intergalactic FM. His production career has spanned krautrock/cosmic, post-punk, electrofunk to what he does today. Stepping aside from managing and A&R for Flight Recorder, Iron Blu releases his second offering for the label. “Science Probe Vessel” is 12 inches of jackbeat and Detroit techno. A1 is a dub-tinged organ driven 909 jack. A2 is a bass-heavy 909 jack cut through with glacial strings. B1 is heavy Detroit techno. B2 is a deep groovin’ house workout fused with wobbly seesawing strings.

Emile Strunz – North Sea Body Music [FLR010]

‘Merck 274350’ With its propulsive mechanical basslines, industrial-strength percussion, and a Germanic vocodered mantra, this Teutonic Panzer Tank of a track takes absolutely no prisoners – an electronic matter of fact statement inspired by the passing of time, fate, circumstance, and synchronicity. Holland’s misanthropic high priest of psychedelic, doomy, dark house & techno, Drvg Cvltvre, delivers a trippy interpretation, turning the track into a lysergic love letter to this iconic chemical catalyst, maintaining the dynamic bassline of the original but adding a nagging 303 line to deliver an explosive 3am dancefloor device. One Step Closer to Heaven begins with a metronomic, rhythmic New Beat stomp and a nagging insidious synth refrain that recalls the more electronic side of New Order. Muscular synth riffs then drop in and out of the mix, taking the track into dark EBM territory and ramping up the pressure before the influences of Giorgio Moroder and Cerrone come to the fore, propelling the track into a rapture of hypnotic celestial electronic disco.

Alessandro Parisi / Adamennon – Il Plenilunio Del Fuoco [FLR009]

“We were lured by the call of the Naught. We bring royal blood to purify the land with the consecration of ancient sages. In the name of the sacred all-glorious crusade, moved by psychokinetic power, we brutally kill as the heavenly dew falls on the battlefield.
We are the fire’s moonlight warriors and this is our holy war.”

Flight Recorderl – home to modern interpretations of other European genres of dance music – Italo, New Beat, and EBM, in conjunction with Radio Oscillations, brings together a collection of music by those producers inspired by these ‘krautrock’ pioneers of the early to mid 1970s on Obliged to Space – a heartfelt and beautifully written love letter to those cosmic sounds of the 1970s.

Antoni Maiovvi – Monoceroticism [FLR007]

Antoni Maiovvi’s career began with a quite frankly amazing lie. In reality Maiovvi is not an original Italo producer from the 1980s come back to reclaim his crown, but a project started at the end of 2006 by composer Anton Maiof to explore a world made of synth pop, hi-nrg and horror soundtracks.

Perseus Traxx – Goddesses Of Inspiration [FLR006]

The Muses are the nine Goddesses who promote literature, science and the arts; the personifications of inspiration. Though only named and assigned characteristics as recently as the Roman era, they were revered by the ancient Greeks, who documented that them as having been recruited by the Egyptian God Osiris as he passed through Ethiopia prior to embarking on a tour of Asia and Europe to teach the arts of cultivation to mankind. Its with this in mind that Perseus Traxx, makes his first release on Newcastles Flight Recorder label, delivering an ode to four of them directly rather than the forms they have inhabited while they visit him. Bubbling and cutting, heavy synths and dusty tones are jammed out live to tape, ranging from the playful to the stark as they characterise the appropriately named tracks. An ordered tangle of wires and patching in a unique set of acid-free sonic experiments, that sometimes feel as cold and edgy, as they do warm and carefree.

VA – Space Consortium Volume 1 [FLR005]

The year is 2475 AD. As the galaxy is torn apart by incessant sonic warfare three veterans of the synth-zone prepare to drop down onto the surface of Nu-Earth for a final battle to reclaim the lost holy sound of Italo Disco and liberate the enslaved populations of the wastelands to reclaim their former musical glories from the tyrannical “audioverlords”, the oppressors of all sentient musical forms. Genetic Musicians carrying the personality matrices of their fallen comrades encoded into their synths, they know no fear or compassion, their instincts artificially modified for ultimate musical combat… code-named Kid Machine, Casionova and Flemming Dalum they operate without boundaries deep behind enemy lines. Watching, waiting, ready to strike at a moment’s notice in any environment on or off-world…

Iron Blu – Jack ‘n’ Daniels EP [FLR001]

IRON BLU - Jack N Daniels EP (Front Cover)

A killer first release on Flight Recorder by Iron Blu who drops a 4-tracker of deep, stripped back Detroit-tinged techno.Side A opens with an intense drum-driven, string-laden stomper, whilst the second track continues with a growling bass holding the alien stabs and scattering snares together. Side B goes deeper, with Endless Eye navigating a deep bass beneath sweet strings and angular synths, then the final track goes into dub realms and even deeper.
