Tel Aviv based producer E-bony debuts with his first EP, thus joining the dark forces of our infamous sister label Wrong Era. “Stray Cats” is six tracks killer EP with rumbling basslines, cutting edge synth sounds, and an unstoppable rhythm that hits you in the stomach and takes you for a spin with no way back. From the dark electronic sounds, to howling cats like synths flying through your ears. E-bony puts his machines to full operation and gets a remix by no other than disco heavyweight Franz Scala.
With this joint venture between Wrong Era and Italo Moderni, label boss Adrian Marth brings it on with a five track EP including two killer remixes from Fabrizio Mammarella and Geneva Jacuzzi. Expect nothing but harsh basslines and filthy drums from the Barcelona based producer. His love for the classic sounds of italo, space, and cosmic disco of the 80’s comes perfectly together on this release. Geneva gives ‘’Hypnotic Eyes’’ a synth driven vocal pop rework that will hypnotize you from the start. Fabrizio instead, gives Adrian’s track ‘’Disorder’’ a peak time heavy edged remix, that will not disappoint you.
New instant classic by Aphonia, side project of Inhalt from Dark Entires fam., who join the Wrong Era-ship with eleven minutes of chills and goosebumps. Rolling through the depths to the surface, this is the sound of your wildest trips. Not italo, not cosmic, not deep: we’re not putting a label on this one. ? A remix from Kris Baha showing his flair for a downtempo industrial jam. Another by head-honcho Franz Scala adds his famous running Italian Dance brush.
The next 12 incher on Wrong Era is made by Marching Machines, a Belgian duo made of Dimitri Andreas and Spacid. Their love for electronic machine manipulation and their musical history that spans over 2 decades, built an excellent foundation for this brand new project. “Lonesome” is a slow burning dark electro track with howling and gloomy synths that flow into acidic tendencies. “Desolat” continues on the emotional path of the previous track, embracing solitude on a broken rhythm, ending up in arpeggiating classic and cosmic italo track. In succession of that, there’s “Driven” which moves up to dancefloor dynamics by using harder and raw sounds, combined with an analogue pulsewave sound generator and building into a release of energy with wavy synths and smashing snares. The final track is a remix of “Lonesome” by one of Wrong Era’s label bosses Fabrizio Mamarella. While the original idea is still intact, the remix is a definite bigger and faster version, implying a stark contrast that still remains powerful, perfectly made for the dancefloor.
A new addition to our ever-growing discoid dance club is Curses. The Italo American brings something a little darker to the party – four cuts of EBM influenced madness. Bone crunching snares and B-Movie samples sit atop shimmering synth licks that will be right at home on a wide variety of modern and retro dance-floors.
Channeling the same slick electronic-funkiness of his DJ sets into four tracks of wildly different music for Wrong Era’s vinyl imprint, this is a record for all occasions that takes in dreamy cosmic-psychedelia, chugging dance-workouts and explosive peak-time bangers.
The sixth instalment of Slow Motion’s retro-futuristic international-sister label is the debut release of mysterious Russian producer Fakundo. This record sits at the heavier end of our musical spectrum and is brimming with hard-hitting electro swagger that conjures up a dystopian video-game underworld, the best bits of Alien Sex Fiend and comes atop a whole bunch of wobbly baselines. Not for the faint of heart this record is a total dance-floor destroyer.
The Revolving Eyes, aka cult DJ duo Rob ’n’ Zoopsie should need no introduction to the more discerning fan of underground European disco. Having recently resurrected their own Moderne Recordings label the duo bring their sophisticated party manoeuvres to Wrong Era for the first time. A five track E.P that touches on the classic sounds of Chicago, Electronica and Wave with a distinctly European twist the Belgian duo are a much welcomed addition to the family.
Win2Win is a new project from two of Slow Motion’s most loyal artists Phillip Lauer and Fabrizio Mammarella. Fantasia 500 channels the spirit of Detroit electro and even dare we say it ghetto house through the disco grinder to make something totally new. With enough chug and swagger to rock any floor this four tracker is 100% party ready.
A one sided italo-balearic bomb from Japan via Roy Comanchero with a fantastic ‘Wedding Dub’ remix of ‘Mick’ by non other than Eddie C. Hands in the air, feet on the floor and lasers going who knows where… A chuggy electronic re-rub by one of Berlin’s disco masters.
Time to welcome an international champion of all things cosmic to Wrong Era, Slow Motion’s international facing sister label. With releases on Clone and Viexlexx to name but two, Mr Pauli is one of the disco underground’s favourite tastemakers and he doesn’t disappoint with four slamming tracks of sublime synthesized funk.
