Out now: exclusive Hair & the Iotas 7"

october 2017

"OK ! This is the real sound ! Straight from the dirty South of France ! Given here and modelled by up-class-rated band Hair & the Iotas in their own Watthaus Studio, down their home city of Perpignan... This is songs & beat !!! - no inaudible sound magma for some I'm-in-search-of-a-rock-n-roll-identity fundamentalist sect, no vain retro posture, no technical demonstration - Hair & the Iotas are absolute, not extreme."

Out now: Rafael Toral's Space Solo 2

april 2017

"Space Solo 2 is the final release on the Space Program series, which started with Space (2006). Ten releases were originally projected, but the ideas I wanted to explore in a sustained and systematic way have already been fulfilled in these six records. For that and a number of other reasons, I decided that I will be able to move with more room and freedom outside this structure that is now completed.
The Solo series is meant to be reference documentation to my solo performance at the time of their release, on various instruments. Space Solo 2 showcases a different set of instruments from Space Solo 1, namely the Glove-controlled sinewaves from the first years, a rarely performed Modular Synthesizer solo, the Theremin-controlled Modulated Feedback and a contemporary approach to the Electrode Oscillator (featured on Space Solo 1 on a simpler configuration)."

Out now: new Los Pirañas vinyl-only album

february 2017

For more than 20 years Eblis Alvarez (Meridian Brothers), Mario Galeano (Frente Cumbiero, Ondatropica) and Pedro Ojeda (Romperayo, Sidestepper) have been exposed to latinamerican tropical types of music that for many years (and still these days) have been relegated to the last place of good taste. Vallenato, peruvian chicha, colombian raspa, champeta, some african sounds and cumbia in its different genres (sabanera, rabajada, sonidera) make part of the new style that Los Pirañas expose in the agitated Colombian music scene.
Their debut album "Toma Tu Jabón Kapax" is deliberately strident and still, you can easily dance to it. In 2013 they released the 7“ single "Salvemos Nuestro Folclor“ and a video directed by artists Mateo Rivano and Santiago Mora. Their second LP "La Diversión Que Hacía Falta En Mi País" was recorded in June 2014 in collaboration with Quantic (Will Hollland) recording on analogue tape and mixed live.
