Ahzz ‎– New York's Movin' 1981 (Land Of Hits)

Label : Land Of Hits

Value : From 120 to 180 euros

The P&P reissue-a-thon continues this week as we're treated to another pair of long out of press pearls from the classic New York imprint. One of the most powerful disco cuts from the P&P Affiliate 'Land of Hits' Label, "New York’s Movin’" is faithful to the name. A seven minute-plus disco gem of percussive breakdowns, a solid bass groove, classic strings, and enough guitar licks to make Nile Rodgers rip out his trademark hair with jealousy. Ahzz was a studio project by Osborne Hunter and Steve Boston and despite the backlash of Comiskey Park’s Disco Demolition in 1979 and the commercialization of Disco, it was clear New York City was still movin’ in '81. Underground hits like these were just undeniable, filling the floor at The Saint, Paradise Garage and Mancuso's Loft parties. Like a lot of the titles on Peter Brown’s labels, today "New York’ Movin’" is a rare and highly sought after record, even a holy grail for some.

Paolo Ferrara - Ritmico 1975 (Flower)

Label : Flower

Value :

Wicked sound library funk from the 70s – an album that was originally pressed on a tiny run of 300 copies, by the equally tiny Flipper sound library label! The style here is nice and spare – less of the orchestral funk of other records of this nature, and mostly focused on rhythms from electric bass and congas, with wah-wah guitar lines that riff up and down the groove! This approach is almost more organic and homemade than some of the slicker sound library sets of the period – with the feel of a small combo just coming up with sweet laidback jams in the studio – and titles include "Rockfolk", "Sambasound", "Bassbeat", "Afrotheme", "Percussion Blues", "Tumbasound", "Bossa Feeling", and "Slow In Rhythm".

'' Dance Like Nobody's Watching''

Η ομάδα The Buttshakin' Conspiracy δημιουργήθηκε το 2015 από 4 φίλους με την ίδια αγάπη και μεράκι για την μουσική!

Όλα ξεκίνησαν σε ένα σκοτεινό υπόγειο μια νύχτα που έβρεχε. Γιατί έτσι; Γιατί έτσι ξεκινάει κάθε ενδιαφέρουσα ιστορία!

Στα σκονισμένα ηχεία ακούγονταν ο Curtis Mayfield και όλη αυτή δυναμική αυτών των αγαπημένων ήχων χανόταν σε εκείνους τους 4 τοίχους. Οι 4 ήρωες της ιστορίας μας είχαν αγνοήσει την πρόσκληση για άλλη μία έξοδο όπου ο κώλος τους δε θα άφηνε την καρέκλα. Αυτό είπε ο Mister Vagz και ο ήχος από το "Move on up" του Curtis Mayfield ήρθε διαβολικά για να τον κάνει να πεταχτεί από την καρέκλα του λέγοντας με στυλ "Αυτό χρειαζόμαστε!". Μουσικές υπάρχουν και πρέπει να ακουστούν συμπλήρωσε ο Alex. O Afrodelik με ενθουσιασμό είχε ήδη σηκωθεί και ετοιμαζόταν να βάλει ένα από τα βινύλια που αγόρασε πριν κάποια χρόνια από Βραζιλία.

Ο ρυθμός ήταν χορευτικός αλλά έμειναν σιωπηλοί και η ατμόσφαιρα άρχισε να ηλεκτρίζεται επικίνδυνα. Κάπως έτσι τότε οι 4 φίλοι κοιτάχτηκαν συνωμοτικά και ήξεραν ότι έπρεπε να κάνουν κάτι ενάντια στην καρέκλα "The butt was meant to shake" είπε ο Βαλάντης και κάπως έτσι οι "The Buttshakin' Conspiracy" οργανώνουν την πρώτη τους όχι-τόσο-μυστική-συνάντηση. Η επόμενη σκηνή είναι στο La Soiree De Votanique την Παρασκευή 15 Απριλίου όπου θα βάλουν σε εφαρμογή όλα τους τα σχέδια για να σε προκαλέσουν να χορέψεις.

Μουσικές αποκλειστικά από βινύλια και cd, όχι απο laptop.

Soul, Funk, Rhythm and Blues, Rare Grooves, Hammond Beat Essentials, Nu Funk.

Οι Buttshakin' Conspiracy είναι:

Ersen - Ersen 2008 (Finders Keepers)

Label : Finders Keepers

Value :

If any singular exponent of the powerful Turkish Anadolu Pop scene could be described as eclectic it would have to be Ersen. His chameleon image in Turkey has teetered on the edge of versatile and schizophrenic over his 40-year sporadic career and his versatile talents as a vocalist have served as a refreshing alternative to his contemporaries in one of the most progressive musical micro-cultures in the history of rock music.
Catapulted into prominence by the first ferocious wave of the Anadolu Pop scene alongside the true cognoscenti of the fledgling phenomenon, Ersen would go-on to record a smash hit single and a string of stylistically disparate records which entertained, inspired, confused, rejuvenated and offend his divided audience in equal parts. By today’s standards Ersen’s erratic creative tendencies makes him one of the strongest Turkish rock contenders to transcend changing musical trends and geographic territories. As a singer he has one of the most unique softly spoken vocal deliveries on the Anatolian Rock scene and as a composer his use of long heavy rhythmical passages punctuated by his signature ‘panting’ vocalisations and throbbing basslines are unmistakable. To fans of early Eastern psychedelic music it will make sense that, although at times in his career Dinleten may have been regarded as an outsider, many attributes of his unique sound are accountable to his open armed acceptance by the originators of the Anadolu Pop scene – primarily, and namely Mogollar and 3 Hurel.

As an artist who had started out playing the type of romantic ballads which wouldn’t sound out place in your local Turkish restaurant, Ersen had been transformed into a credible ambassador for the much publicised Anadolu Rock phenomenon and, to some sceptics dismay, he had travelled via rock ‘n roll, traditional folk and pop trends along the way. In some senses the Anadolu rock scene mirrored the likes of Brazil’s Tropicalia movement where social politics could potentially eclipse the music, so when the likes of Ersen chose to remain apolitical he was often criticised by the unduly disappointed radicals of young Turkey. Where the vociferous Selda Bagcan could be compared to Os Mutantes’s Rita Lee, Ersen took the role as a politically pedestrian Roberto Carlos.

The recent resurgence in Ersen’s music amongst DJs and record collectors and the recent commercial re-appropriation of his tracks via advertising and sampling stands is testimony to his misplaced accessibility. The A-side to Ersen and Dadaslar’s third single ‘Gafil Gezme Saskin’ (Don’t Wander Heedless, Bewildered)
was recently sampled by American Hip-Hop producer ‘OH-NO’ as part of Los Angeles based Stones Throw collective who have embraced the resurgence of Anatolian Pop with open arms. Recent joint DJ sessions with label boss Eothen Alapatt and Finder Keepers have witnessed packed dancefloors rocking-out to dozens of rare and unknown Turkish 45s while auction site eBay plays host to hoards of frenzied bidders hoping to secure original copies of Turkish LPs at inconsistent and regularly inflated prices. In 2007 traditional English footwear brand Clarks went to great cross-continental lengths to license the track ‘Gunese Don Cicegim’ for a national TV advertisement which prompted heavy debates on internet forums amongst hungry vinyl junkies trying to identify the mystery track.
