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
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.

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.

The release will be made available as a 2xLP with three additional bonus tracks, out July 31st, 2020.
