C.P.I. – Alianza [HVNLP02]

C.P.I. - Alianza

Introducing C.P.I. an almost forgotten project from Capablanca & Marc Piñol granted a full album release via John Talabot’s Hivern Discs. Emerging in 2014 with a rare 7″ release, Alianza follows a brace of EPs spread across a four year peroid, with this album diving deep into the submersive ambient realms of analogue, machine made music. Full of tension, lo-fi industrialisms and atmospheres that play with themes of giallo italo (“Osera”), and winds of the new age in “Islaalsl”, find spiritual spoken word in both “Rasa” and “Epileg”, with the latter drifting unnoticed into a haunted cathedral of choirs. For lovers of ambient 4th world music, dub techno noise-floor, crackle and pop (“I/O”) and epic space western drone (“Sol”), C.P.I. have arrived.

VA – Nothing Matters When We Are Dancing Vol 10: Cosmic Hole [CDA010Y/COSMICHOLE]

Discodromo present a three-vinyl compilation to celebrate the tenth birthday of their Berlin party CockTail d’Amore. The compilation features the sound that best envisions the party and its evolution throughout its first decade. This vinyl features the sound of the Cosmic Hole, a room dedicated to downtempo psychedelia. CPI, the name behind Marc Pinol and Hugo Capablanca’s collaborative project, launches this record with a hypnotic acid ballad named Mount Anal: for a late night slow-mo dance experience. Synth-noir melodies are brought by two label aficionados, Juan Ramos and Kris Baha, while Honeysoundsystem’s Bezier journeys to a One Thousand and One Nights soundscape with his Starpoint.

Marc Pinol – Clef III [DISCO007]

Given the quality of his previous releases on Hivern Discs, you’d expect this ultra-limited 12″ excursion from Marc Pinol to be pretty special. It is, of course, with the Spanish producer’s original version of “Clef III” getting the perfect balance between nu-disco style, melody rich beauty and good old-fashioned, acid-flecked Chicago jack. Alejandro Paz works the drums and handclaps harder on his trippy, hypnotic take, while Capablanca hit the button marked “Balearic acid” on their spiralling, near psychedelic take. It’s a great package, made all the more alluring by the strange paucity of copies (just 99 worldwide, apparently… be quick or miss out).
