Delkom’s only known previously released album. Originally released in 1990 by the wonder duo consisting of Saba Komossa and Gabi Delgado. The album is released as a continuous mix with each track delineated on the grooves. Imagine Berlin in 1990, the wall is about to come down, no social media, no CDJs, new drugs are being standardized and this is the soundtrack to your night out in this debaucherous capital, exploding with energies that anthropology PhD students still haven’t been able to fully describe. The entire record sounds like a dub mix that almost wasn’t allowed to be released by the record label, unorthodox in its methods, too experimental for most studios yet highly effective on the best of dancefloors. Sexually charged lyrics, driving percussive rawness over heftily synthesized bass lines, all boxes are checked for total club mayhem. Pioneers in their own right, clearly marking their territory in Berlin dancefloor culture from its early post reunification days. Powerfully tasteful and unique sounds from a golden age.

Traxx @ H.A.N.D. Have A Nice Day (Berlin) 22.10.2022
“The recording of what was heard the morning of October 22nd 2022 at Have A Nice Day, Berlin. Much love and respect to Nation for making this possible.”
Maxine – Alien [THANKYOU017]
Going back to the vaults of the iconic X Energy Records label from Italy, Thank You presents yet another Balearic house masterpiece for your listening pleasure. Deep and sensual androgynous vocals, dreamy synth melodies, generously pulsating bass lines that blend with the playfulness of the rhythm – all boxes are checked. Surely a soundtrack that would have graced a daytime outdoor dance floor at Amnesia in the early 90s.
Trent – Devil’s Music Flies with Fire [BLESSYOU009]
Masterful sample based collages of old disco tracks by Trent, resulting in highly effective dancefloor DJ tools adorned with heavy percussive elements.
Patrizia Pellegrino – Automaticamore [MISSYOU018]
Originally released in 1981, this cosmic italian disco anthem written by Claudio Gizzi has charmed diggers the world over with its subdued mannerism and breathy vocals. Sounding like a Julee Cruise soundtrack cut meeting a Tuscan ‘theque, the song hears Italian TV presenter/actress Patrizia Pellegrino utter deep-resonating lyrics into a funky and dark beatscape, in what has been described as an ‘erotic futuristic ode to the cosmos’. Remastered and pressed to wax once more for your pleasure, ‘Miss You’ is a charmer and relationship-rekindler for the ages.
Pais Tropical – Melodya [THANKYOU013]
Official reissue of dreamy Italian early house project, originally released in 1990, a total balearic house anthem this EP comes with 3 mixes, remastered.
Sea Of Disillusions – Part II [BLESSYOU006]
Part II of the Sea of Disillusions project by Youcef Debbihi, another assortment of beautifully produced atmospheric, dubbed out downtempo techno. Yousef Debbihi does it again, another perfect collection of tracks, mandatory for any tasteful DJ bag roaming in the fields of contemporary produced dancefloor business. A crafty display of his mastery in the studio, this EP gives full perspective on Yousef’s oeuvre and capabilities. If you got part I, this is mandatory, another tasting in the downtempo cosmic domaine – no regrets guaranteed.
Sea Of Disillusions – Part I [BLESSYOU005]
Assortment of 3 trippy chugger downtempo would-be-cosmic-hole anthems beautifully produced by Parisian scene Don Yousef Debbihi. Coming in through the clutch for this summers’ hopeful re-openings with Rec23 – what could have been the soundtrack to a new Akira sequel. Following with a never ending tribal K-hole trip. Ending with a beautiful atmospheric excursion on the B side, perfect for cleansing and setting up a dancefloor.
Le Palace De Beaute – The Pleasure Seekers [THANKYOU009]
Larry Tee’s early work originally released in 1988 featuring mutated HiNRG Proto House sounds. Serious business faster borderline HiNRG on the A side with Pleasure Seekers, and then starting off the B side with slower fun samples sprinkled over solid 4 on the floor drum machine. Closing credits with a slower drama drenched urban soap opera ballad. One to keep in the bag all summer.?Original artwork by New York’s Tabboo!
Ars Mundi – El Genio De Los Pies Rojos [THANKYOU010]
Completely unorthodox production techniques employed by one of Spain’s maestros from the 80’s, Thank You brings back one of Julian Ruiz’s craziest productions that come with a potential threat to any well tuned HiFi system (careful at 1:26 on A side). A remarkable dubby/italo rhythm section sets the foundation for a dreamy melody that won’t be forgotten so easily. Inspired in Indian mythology, “El Genio De Los Pies Rojos” is a masterpiece that will take any tasteful dancefloor to serious heights. Includes 2 other shorter titles from the album originally released in 1986.
Galaxy II Orchestra – Acid Rain [THANKYOU006]
Forgotten side project production from 1986, by Grammy award winning sound engineer Chris Lord Alge. Two versions of an oddball leftfield electro downtempo chugger and one previously unreleased patriotic monologue acompanied by heroic emotional piano – to be served with a sense of sarcasm.
Carmen – Throw Down [SMR04]
This boogie anthem release is manufactured from the master tapes and remastered at D&M in Berlin. The release is authorized from the artists. Includes a San Soda refix.
Unknown Artist – H.A.N.D. 01 [HAND01]
