Out Soon on Tigerbass is one hell of a slammer by Magnum 38, (one of Musick/Shitkatapult's finest producers.) delivers the goods with this inspired tribute to the living legend Grace Jones.
These tracks are neither typical “remixes” nor conventional cover versions in any sense, instead these tracks take excerpts and motifs of Grace Jones songs as an inspiration for something completely new, produced from scratch, but true to the spirit of Grace Jones' work. The three driving club tracks about Love and Pain "Slave", "Devil", and "Suffer" will get your body moving while the three abstract and jazzy plunderphonic interludes ("Sequel 1, 2, 3") give you a chance to recover.
Expect a sound that manages to blend the likes of Jackson and his computer band, Prefuse 73, Para One, and Akufen with Magnum’s trademark fuzzy bass sounds and banging electro beats.

Released in 1982, this roland heavy album by Charanjit Singh's SYNTHESIZING features '10 ragas to a disco beat', complete with slammin' 303 acid lines, 808 beats and of course, crazy indian styled melodies played live on analogue synths and shit.
It would be all too easy to regard this as a gimmick of an album, if it weren't for the fact the music is actually really fucken awesome.
The music is the perfect combination of being a. ahead of it's time and b. impossible to find, which makes it the perfect candidate for a real nice healthy reissue. It totally deserves it.
Do check it out, it sounds absolutely unique and ahead of it's time, giving you one hell of a trippin freestyle ride!

The musical genius that is Si Begg has done it again!
This E.P. Is free. Yes that's right, free. (You can buy the limited edition "hand-made in Hackney" box set, but that's not compulsory) All tracks are yours to download and distribute as you see fit. You can copy them, burn them on a CD, blog them, host them yourself, give them to your mum, whatever you want. Music in the public domain. Or put another way: Make. Upload. Share. Inspire. Crisps.
Major labels and the bodies that represent them, such as the BPI in the UK and the RIAA in the USA would have us believe that sharing music is destroying music and the musicians that create it. We contend that the truth is, this cartel of major record companies, distributors and publishers have been systematically fucking musicians and the people that love and buy music for about 50 years. Creating, amongst other things, huge profits for shareholders, a rigorous, brutally industrialised method of music production, Hannah Montana and an inherently average, uninspiring, mainstream music scene. This traditional industry model is so close to death that we dare not entertain it here. Instead we leave it up to you to help determine how far this E.P. travels.
