Kenny Larkin – Azimuth (Expanded Edition) [ART2021-1]

LARKIN, Kenny - Azimuth (Expanded Edition)

A staggering collection Detroit techno-soul music, beamed directly into your consciousness from 1994. Kenny Larkin is one of a handful of artists from the city whose original and unique sonic output has helped shape and advance techno as an art form and as a serious musical movement across the world and it’s galaxies beyond, a formidable DJ and producer whose music continues to push the envelope today. ‘Azimuth’ gives us what would be Larkin’s first full length offering, and across 11 tracks of blistering hi-tech machine funk, ambient, soul drenched rhythms and futurist club music he deftly crafted a classic. Originally released on Warp Records, ‘Azimuth’ is a record that effortlessly sounds like it came to earth yesterday while being 25 years old, a true Detroit classic that still makes waves across the planet today.

Ø & Panasonic – Sähkö – The Movie Soundtrack EP [SÄHKÖ029]

The sound recordings for Jimi Tenor’s “Sähkö: The Movie” got lost in mid 90s. It was only last spring Warp Records returned all the demo tapes Jimi sent them in 90s. Happily the Sähkö soundtrack parts were on those tapes too. This is a compilation of soundtracks (both solo, as Ø, and alongside Ilpo Vaisanen and Sami Salo as Pan Sonic) made for Mika Vainio’s memorial in Oslo in September 2018. All the tracks are from the actual movie scenes.
