Decent International 02 – Rentboy / Plantain [DECENT02]

Early 80s. Christiane F and Tron meet over a brutalist landscape. Clock is ticking. Electronic pioneers bang up post punks. Dirty hits. Take more. Time is running out. Northern European sub-cultural appropriation to destroy the dance. Still, it sounds good. And it looks nice. Nice sleeve art. Move along. Move along.

Decent International 01 – Leaving You / When Koaa [DC001]

From the Going Good camp. The drums smack. The bass is too loud. Liberia, Ghana, all the way across to Uganda. 1970’s tinpot dictatorships birth colourful sounds. Magnetic tape, Linn drums and Bucket Brigade delay units confuse the mix. Sub-cultural colonialism to destroy the dance. Still, it sounds good. And it looks nice as well!

VA – Time To Set The Night On Fire [AM001]

01AM is the perfect time to start a party and it is the first release of a new label by Afrobot related to his Afrobotic Musicology blog. The record contains 4 edits of music from different corners of the globe: to begin with an epic electro pop nugget from Greece and a heavily cut up Bollywood track on the A side, to finish the journey in Africa on the flip side with a percussive acid jam and a Zulu cult song that screamed for a rework. Limited edition / hand stamped artwork by Frank Koedood on the sleeve.

Unknown – Unknown [EST83-04]

A lost relic from the 80’s Detroit underground. This ”demo” recording is from a cassette found in a dusty box of donations left at a second hand shop. There is no info as to who, when or where this was recorded. What is it? Post Punk? Disco (Not) Disco? Sleaze Wave? or Mutant Surf? It doesn’t matter because its fucking incredible whatever you want to call it! A glimpse into what could/should have been a very important band had they gone further than this one track demo. 7” with original mix and an edit from FIT on the flip. Artwork by Stallone The Reducer. Made in collaboration with Lo and Behold Records in Hamtramck, MI. 200 copies for the world.

Austerity – The Return Of The Ottoman Empire [AUSTERITY005]

”The austerity policies imposed by the governments of Northern Europe countries has impoverished the Mediterannean lands. The failure of Bruxelles’ bureaucracy has smoothed the way for th return of the Ottoman empire. Austerity is a collective of protesting producers coming from the periphery of the European Union. Their tough-sounding music is a reaction to the unfair decison of the Troika; their message of peace is conveyed through hardware hard-core house music. ”
