Review: Cosmic disco legend Daniele Baldelli with brand new trancey disco and space techno tracks. With cheesy Italo Disco getting popular again in 2005, Baldelli thinks that its time to bring on some deepness again. Well worth checking out!
Review: DJ Baldelli is back! The inventor of the Italian cosmic disco style is definitely on the roll again. "Cosmicdiba 2007" is his second EP for Gomma. This Baldelli release features a banging sequencer to create a peak-time disco track.
Review: Box Codax is the long expected solo project of Franz Ferdinand's guitarist Nick McCarthy & Alex Wagner - a catchy LoFi-Pop-Disco-FreakOut from another planet. Somewhere between Gnarls Barkley, Talking Heads, Ween and even old skool Beastie Boys jams. The album will be released on Gomma end of September 2006.
Review: The legendary Dimitri From Paris & DJ Rocca are back on Berlin via Munich's Gomma imprint. Dimitri comes from the Parisian school of disco. He first appeared with his debut album Sacrebleu in 1996 alongside with the first French house wave, such as St.Germain, Super Discount and Daft Punk. Some years ago he teamed up with Italian producer, DJ and man of many talents DJ Rocca. He might be known to many for his work as Ajello and Crimea X. Among the many names he produced music for, he also made tracks with cosmic disco innovator DJ Daniele Baldelli. When Rocca and Dimitri are in the studio together, they somehow have a magic touch: as heard here on these sleek and sexy four tracks. The neon-lit and pop inflected '80's groove of "One For Frankie" is a surefire party starter: it's all about the Moog bassline and those epic panpipes. "Don't You Feel The Same" channels that classic French Touch sound like contemporaries such as DJ Falcon or Alan Braxe on this feelgood late night anthem.
Review: Drrtyhaze are Drilla (aka Haze and Mr. Drrty) from the Lower East Side/New York City. They are a new act on the German Gomma label and the "Voodoo" EP is their first release. Till now they are mostly known for their parties in New York and for DJing their very own dirty Drrtyhaze style. The A-side is kind of a hymn to the place where they live: the Lower East Side. Pure party boogie! The flipside are two spaced out slow hippy disco trips.
Review: In a career that stretches over 20 years Belgian duo The Glimmers have done it all. Annoyed the Rolling Stones; put out countless twelves and albums on their own Diskomo imprint and others; curated compilations for the likes of Eskimo, DJ Kicks and Fabric; helped form electroclash via their eclectic sets and lived to tell the stories. Whomp That Sucker, the latest album from the duo marks a belated appearance on Gomma, one of the few labels that haven't been graced by the Glimmers magic (a Phenomenal Handclap Band remix aside). Recorded in conjunction with close pal Ray Mang, David & Mo Glimmers set the tone with the opening track "Patty Cake Online", a thunderous combination of turbo charged percussion, multi faceted analogue effects and a sinewy bassline. The accompanying press release from Gomma urges the listener to play this album loud and such advice should be followed as the raw sensation of tracks such as "U Rocked My World" and "Killing Jokes" is best experienced when you can feel the bass throbbing away in your guts. Visceral unadulterated dance music at its finest.
Review: Gomma brings two sick new tracks from Golden Bug. "Horses" has dark Italo basslines, crisp synthesizers, Ghetto vibes and a hip-house attitude. The fucked up Rick James-like vocals on "Horses" as well as the Japanese cut-up rap, "We love Tokio", on the flip, won't get out of your head!
Review: Grunge-techno and acid-disco by Berlin's Clubrock champion, Headman. The first new Headman single after a two year
period in which Headman created his own label, Relish, and did remixes for everyone from The Gossip to Mylo and
This is the first 12" from the new Headman album which will be released in spring 2008 on Gomma.
Remixes on this 12" by Autokratz from Kitsune and Lele (aka Parra - the mighty edit maestro from Belgium).
Headman/ Manhead remixed hits for Royksopp, The Rapture, Roxy Music, Zombie Nation, Radio 4 and many more.
Besides his stuff for Gomma he also did records for Kitsune, Output, and Eskimo. Last year, his singles
'On & On' and 'Moisture' and their remixes were club hits.
Review: In Flagranti are from New York City. They have been releasing some amazing stuff on Codek records (debut album out soon!) and organize the famous "Happy Ending" parties in the Lower East Side on Tuesdays. They have been DJing alongside the Munk guys a lot and now is the time that they do an EP for the label - and what a crispy piece of wax: Four midtempo housetracks: Cosmic disco and Balearic funk with a hip hop attitude. This is the NYC shit for 2007 - pitch down your players!
