Having gotten down and dirty with the X-rated Belgian club tunes of Erotique New Beats, Musique Pour La Danse stick with the late 1980s and jump from the continental mainland to Sheffield for a quick dip in the city’s bustling early bleep scene. Ozone compiles the stellar recordings of local legends Ozone Recordings, each track a vintage coalescence of rave, acid and techno sure to whet any DJ and electronic music historian’s appetite.
We begin with the laser-focused rave atmospherics of
Count Zero’s ‘Silent Prayer #1’, which reverberate throughout the minimal acid
hits of Success’ ‘Tripwire (Deep Bass Strip Down Acid)’ and New Age
Technology’s bleep classic ‘New Age Technology II’

Psychotropic ‘A Funny Discovery’ is the opening track from the upcoming De Beren Gieren album ‘Less Is Endless’ due February on Sdban Ultra.
Known for their dynamic sound and complex song structures, De Beren Gieren delivers an extravagant blend of polyrhythmic soundscapes and elitist twists, showing an ability to change the mood in a way that constantly holds the listener’s attention. They effortlessly shift from more rigidly styled compositions to improvised sections and thus reveal the pulsating and ominous futuristic sound of a new world.
‘A Funny Discovery’ is accompanied by a video made by Belgian graphic artist Ysbear.

In 1976, when Marcos Resende recorded his debut album with Index, he had hoped to release it with Creed Taylor’s famed CTI Records. Although a deal with the label almost came to fruition, it fell through and the album was shelved by Marcos who had other priorities working with the likes of Gilberto Gil, Edu Lobo, Gal Costa and Carlos Dafé, as well as making music for TV and film.
45 years later, Marcos Resende & Index’s lost self-titled debut album is almost here…

Legendary electronic auteur Bernard Szajner‘s 1980 LP Some Deaths Take Forever is being reissued on vinyl for the first time, this January via Cortizona.
Originally released on Pathé in 1980, the influence and the impact of Some Deaths Take Forever is still vibrating: Carl Craig mentioned it as his all time favorite album in Future Mag, the signature sound of Oneohtrix Point Never feels almost like a not so hidden tribute and the killer sci fi electronics of tracks Ressurector or A Kind Of Freedom resonates through the discography of Air and Daft Punk, to name a few.
The album’s first ever vinyl reissue will feature 5 previously unreleased tracks taken from the same recordings sessions, as well as liner notes by Karel Beer and John Olson.

Coming end of November, Slater has also planned the very first reissue of his seminal techno album as Morganistic ‘Fluids Amniotic’ since its release in 1994. He released very limited cuts with this moniker but had a strong influence and has been supported by pioneers of the genre such as Jeff Mills or Robert Hood. The LP has been remastered by Matt Colton at Metropolis from the original DAT and reel-to-reel tapes.
Mote Evolver will release Fluids Amniotic on November 27th, 2020
