Big week for Manchester’s Red Laser, with label chief Il Bosco serving up the label’s first installment of Peraceamid. Terry Perace gets into some Typhoon club style tribal on “Trip Pop 2020”, followed by his Inslaved mix of Kid Machine’s “SDM” getting some vintage Italo vibes in effect. Over on the flip, you’ll be ushered aboard the acid express on the strobed-out groove of Marcus Paulson’s “Wrecked In Utrecht” followed by the classic Chicago house throwback vibes of Ste Spandex’s “Examples Of You”.
Manchester’s Red Laser Records returns with a four track various artists EP curated by label chief Il Bosco. 12 features Mark Wilkinson aka Kid Machine returns to the label with the neon-lit ’80s mood of “Only Machines Allowed” going for that Axel Foley vibe, followed by Count Van Delicious doing his best impression of the Centre Neptune man on “I Wonder How Flemming Dalum Is Doing?”. Over on the flip, things get pretty Balearic on Ste Spandex’s “Edit 2” (2021 Re-Pop) and Ernesto Harmon gets stuck into some electro beat synthpop on the infectious “Search For”.
Transmitting from the Orgonite heart of his Levenshulme bunker, zest fuelled mastermind Ste Spandex breaks through the static and reaches the ears of the mighty Tusk Wax, scoring himself a well deserved label debut in the process. Modern melodic spacey disco house tracks.
To say Tony Carrasco is a bit of an italo legend is a fukin understatement. He is responsible for some of the most seminal Italo records producing Klien & MBO, Ameresie, Flash 83, Gaz Nevada, Plastic Mode and BFunk. Then take Red Laser Man and Italo legend Flemming Dalum and stick him on the remix and POW!!!!! The result is one of the heaviest tracks on Red Laser to date.
The first release on Red Laser Records, a new label releasing fine italo, electro, boogie & house. . EP1 features four Mancunian producers & a Danish Italo legend. Kid Machine collaborates with Flemming Dalum, together they concoct a hefty 80’s horror-esque electronic monster. Label head Il Bosco brings an addictive boogie disco track to life, expertly cutting insistent breaks. Starion goes deep with a nonstop dancefloor workout and some serious synth action whilst Ste Spandex covers Royalle Delite’s 80’s electro soul classic ‘Freak For You’, pitching up the original and adding extra bounce to the proceedings.
