As Morganistic, Luke Slater only released a handful of cuts-but among those was the album Fluids Amniotic, still widely praised today as a benchmark techno long-player. Slater unearthed the original DAT and reel-to-reel tapes and got them remastered by Matt Colton at Metropolis. Fluids Amniotic will get re-issued both on vinyl and digitally for the first time in 25 years.

Progetto Tribale was born in 1992 under the mentorship of Giancarlino, and executed by a team that included Pietro Micioni, Paolo Micioni, D.RaD (a.k.a Stefano Facchielli), and Giancarlino himself. Based on a deep combination of African rhythms and soul music, Progetto Tribale gained great success, particularly with “Behaviour.” Volume 6, the project’s last release, came over 24 years ago.
In partnership with two of the original members, Pietro and Paolo Micioni, Dozzy has reignited Progetto Tribale. Volume 7 features three original productions with Dozzy, real name Donato Scaramuzzi, plus a modern interpretation of “Behaviour” by Dozzy and Pietro Micioni.

In 2018 Far Out Recordings signed a record deal with Brooklyn born, nomadic producer Jneiro Jarel. Having just put the finishing touches to the recordings, Jarel suffered an ischemic stroke while living and working in Costa Rica and his wife Indigo was forced to set up a crowd fund to cover special medical transport back to the states to receive treatment. The release was put on hold, but thanks to the generosity of friends and fans around the world, Jarel was able to get the care he needed and is now on the long road to recovery. We’re overjoyed to finally announce Jneiro Jarel’s After A Thousand Years is now set for a October 2020 release.
Listen to Banana Peel below.
Throughout a career that has spanned over twenty years and seen collaborations with MF DOOM, Thom Yorke, Damon Albarn, BadBadNotGood, Portishead’s Beth Gibbons, Kimbra and Khujo Goodie (Dungeon Family), Jneiro Jarel’s consistently distinctive, forward thinking productions, as well as his love for the music of Brazil, made his partnership with Far Out a perfect fit.
Recorded between New York, New Orleans, Miami and Costa Rica, Jarel’s forthcoming album After A Thousand Years features legendary multi-instrumentalist Bill Summers, famed for his work with Herbie Hancock, Quincy Jones and Eddie Henderson. The album also features Malawian-American guitarist Masauko Chipembere who has worked with the likes of RZA from Wu-Tang Clan and Ladybug Mecca from Digable Planets.
On lead single “Banana Peel”, Jarel’s outernational perspective makes for a track that is almost impossible to place geographically: you can hear the swing of Jarel’s native New Orleans jazz, the vibrance of Costa Rican rainforests as well as the influence of Jarel’s vast collection of Brazilian records.
Far Out Recordings will release After a Thousand Years on October 30th, 2020
As announced earlier this year, from this Fall Axis Records will expand its musical scope by including more works that encompass live musicians/soloists and players from other genres, but more importantly, in directions that will address the idea of using instruments to reach a higher level of consciousness. We are delighted to introduce you the first release of this new era:
The album which was first released under the guise of his Living Room moniker is set to be re-released by Musique Pour La Danse. The album was first released via his own Night Vision record label back in 1994 and showcases a side to Orlando Voorn‘s musical persona less explored as he channels elements of downtempo, IDM and electronica across twelve tracks.
The album was built with the listening experience in mind and is somewhat removed from the Dutch producers traditional offering of hard hitting techno and electronics built for the clubs.
Stream Roomservice on Spotify.
The release will be made available as a 2xLP with three additional bonus tracks, out July 31st, 2020.
The Crystal City Is Alive is released on 24 July by Axis Records.
We recognize Jeff Mills and Eddie Fowlkes as two of the originators and progenitors of Detroit Techno, and as artists who’ve sustained a near 40 year practice as prolific keepers of the Motor-City’s culture-advancing musical flame. Jessica Care Moore is an internationally renowned poet, publisher, band leader, multimedia event impresario and recording artist. She returned to her hometown nearly a decade after long stints in Atlanta and New York, where she first gained acclaim as a multiple time winner of The legendary Apollo Theatre’s legendary and uber-competitive Amateur Night. The poet’s sermonic delivery of her lyrical tapestries on The Beneficiaries brings the rich, prophetic and radical political vein of African American Freedom movement poetics into Techno in ways not heard so overtly, militantly or evangelically before.
Mills, Fowlkes and Moore are beneficiaries of Black Detroits multi-dimensional legacies of self-sufficiency and sonic futurism. They represent a triumvirate of diversity haling from within Detroit’s creative omniverse, assembling to lay down a crossroads of their own conjuring and coordinates.
