VA – WhyPeopleWar – Fundraiser for Ukraine

Beard In Dust – Señor Paraíso [CR001]

BEARD IN DUST - Senor Paraiso

Initially slated for release in 2019, in the innocent days before the pandemic, the debut release from new label Crudo Ricordi is finally ready for the streets. Three formidable edits from Beard In Dust (AKA Lipelis), all aimed at peaktime dancefloor action. The title track “Señor Paraíso” might sound familiar to some hardcore Italo fans, but this pumped up and extended version hits much harder in the club. The two b-side tracks “Kirkorovmoroder” and “Coconut Paradise” could be recognised by only the most seasoned of USSR synth-pop connoisseurs, both tracks featuring totally addictive and ecstatic melodies.

TMO – Insomniac EP [PP012]

Munich purveyors of fine new wave Balearic are it again with a release this time with TMO (aka Moscow’s Lepelis who has previously appeared on L.I.E.S. and 303 State) with the Insomniac EP. First track “Melodic Jam” sounds like a disturbed cover of Frankie Knuckles “The Whistle Song” albeit with some epic mono-synth spitting out the melody instead, soon turning into gnarly acid. On the flip we have “Jam IV” which goes for a more lo-fi, dusty deep house vibe. A dark and paranoid after-hours jam whose slow burning glory turns into snarling acid euphoria just like the track before it.
