Francisco Mora Catlett – Electric Worlds [PLE65405]

CATLETT, Francisco Mora - Electric Worlds

Planet E Communications releases ‘Electric Worlds’ LP by Francisco Mora-Catlett, marking Francisco’s first electronic album in celebration of 30 Years of Planet E. Francisco Mora-Catlett’s career spans decades, genres and astral realms, perpetually defined by the quest for survival and being free. The Mexican-American percussionist, composer, and producer makes his solo debut on Carl Craig’s renowned Planet E Communications with his first electronic music album, ‘Electric Worlds’. Whether pushing the limits of free jazz with the Sun Ra Arkestra in the 70’s, studying at Berklee College of Music and touring with Max Roach in the 80’s, or playing in Carl Craig’s “The Innerzone Orchestra” in the 90’s, Francisco’s passion has always been for the capacity that the music created by black and brown people has to free the human spirit.

KORRUPT DATA - Korrupt Data

Surfacing earlier this year with two 12″s on Planet E, the anonymous Korrupt Data now deliver a debut album for Carl Craig’s label. Korrupt Data’s music straddles the divide between Kraftwerk and Model 500 without the crazy frenetics of Drexciyan electro. Said to be made with ‘old kit’ this 11-track album is spread across two discs and it’s very much geared for the dancefloor and sounding distinctly Detroit. Highlights include the vocoder electro space pop of “Inter Arrival”, the glitchy tones and rigid beats of “Photons, Protons, Microns, Mutrons” and the emotional techno acid of “Memory Loss”.

Korrupt Data – Cryogene [PLE653671]

KORRUPT DATA - Cryogene

Planet E is debuting the so far unknown Korrupt Data with a three-track 12″. Entitled Cryogene – cryogenics being the study of the production and behaviour of materials at very low temperatures – the sounds here match such a description. The title-track is a highlight and it’s a great electro production made at a speedy house tempo that brims with all the Detroit goodness of an Interdimensional Transmission record. “Drifting Vessels” is a little more broken in rhythm and has that deep sea searching vibe of a chilled out Drexciya track, while “Shimmer” is a reflective, sombre, but also hopeful and cosmic piece of electronic music brilliance.

Terrence Parker – Life On The Back 9 [PLE65361-1]

https://clone.nl/platen/artwork/large/plaatimage29702.jpg

Classy Detroit house tracks drenched in funk. Soulful tracks ranging from downtempo to more classic Detroit house tracks and disco injected cuts. ”This album is about moving forward through hard times in life to see something beautiful on the other side of difficulties.” quote Terrence Parker.

Psycatron – She is Music [PLE65322-1]

Psycatron, dropping their 2nd 12″ for Planet E’s Guilty Pleasures sub-label. Along for the ride, Blake Baxter contributes moody vox to the steadily building vibes and bolshy beats making a bit of a massive tune for anyone with a big club to keep happy.

Psycatron – She is Music [PLE65322-1]

Kirk Degiorgio – Membrane [PLE65316]

1990 was the decade Kirk established healthy roots with the network trio of Detroit producers: Derrick May, Juan Atkins and Kevin Saunderson. In preparation for Kirks most influential journey to the US, he collaborated demos with Ed Handley and Andy Turner under the collective The Black Dog.

Franck Roger – Re-Scape [PE65314]

ROGER, Franck - Re Scape

Stripped down drum rhythm tracks from the busy french house producer that slowly evolve in proper tracks with layers of strings and pulsating synths. Flip side has a more chicago vibe with bits of bleepy DBX basslines. Strong release and probably one of our recent Planet E favorites.
