Ozone compiles the stellar recordings of local legends Ozone Recordings

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.

Remastered by Rob Gordon (original Forgemasters member & Warp co-founder) and with extensive liner notes by Matt Annis (jointhefuture.net), available in limited trioxygen blue vinyl edition featuring the infamous The Designers Republic logo!

First track from new De Beren Gieren album

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.

First time vinyl reissue of Bernard Szajner’s 1980 electronic masterpiece

Including 5 previously unreleased tracks.

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.

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.
