RPM with Spettro Family, Umberto, Ceephax and Samantha Glass

Here is an update on some (new) records I have been spinning the most lately... I hear a lot of music but I have periods in which certain records keep returning on the turntable... for the last weeks I have been playing a lot the Spettro Family 10 inch released by T(r)eue um T(r)eue. It is simply excellent... ghost like soundscapes... ambient with sort of neo-classical elements to it... almost like a pop version of Ligeti at its best moments... it fills the space around you with the spirit of old Europa... this one is recommended to fans of Land... but also in a strange way to people who like Umberto...

The new Umberto album 'Confrontations' is cleaner in sound as before... maybe before it was music for B movies... especially horror and sci-fi films... now it has turned into nighttime music... thematic it is all sci-fi/alien/ufo stuff but take that away and what is left is an amazing piece of space italo disco... some (slow) beat orientated pieces and some more cosmic trippy stuff... all excellent in its moodiness but never depressive in anyway... you could imagine Buck Rogers and the women from 25th century Earth swinging all night on this... here is one track to get the night started...

Well if the morning is finally coming then we put on the 3 x 12 inch album 'Cro Magnox' by Ceephax... also known of course as Ceephax Acid Crew... I must admit I never bought a record of this musician before... I liked some stuff but was never fully convinced of a release... untill now... still there are some pieces on this album which are too disco for me... but overall this is a great album filled with electronic music... some pieces are superb dance tracks like for example "Camelot Science" while some others are perfect for chill outs in the morning sun after a night out out at a classic English rave party in the countryside...

And... then if the new day hits you and you do not want to wake up to reality as we know it in general... then there is the fantastic album by Samantha Glass... a soothing (day) trip to keep you warm and safe in this cold and nasty world... if you like Group Rhoda do not look furthur... Bronze is another name that springs to mind even though Samantha Glass is more tranquil in sound and performance... here is one piece to get you all comfy...

The Samantha Glass and Umberto are available at the Enfant Terrible webshop here... You can still get the Spettro Family from the label (act fast, only 200 copies in total!) and the Ceephax from places like Clone and Juno...
