Blamma! Blamma! - Beyond 17 (Cage & Aviary Remix)
For those who are unaware, Goat are a collective of musicians who hail from a small and very remote village called Korpolombolo in deepest darkest Sweden.
Legend has it that for centuries, the inhabitants of the village of Korpolombolo were dedicated to the worship and practices of Voodoo. This strange and seemingly unlikely activity was apparently introduced into the area after a travelling witch doctor and a handful of her disciples were led to Korpolombolo by following a cipher hidden within their most sacred of ancient scriptures. The reason it led them there is unknown, but their Voodoo influence quickly took hold over the whole village and so they made it their home – there, they were able to practice their craft unnoticed and unbothered for several centuries.
This was until their non-Christian ways were discovered by the Church and they were burned out by the crusaders, the survivors cursing the village over their shoulders as they fled. To this day, the now picturesque village of Korpolombolo is still haunted by this Voodoo curse; the power of the curse can be felt throughout the grooves of this Goat record.
The nine track album follows the underground success of the now sought after 7” Goatman, which is also included in this selection. The band takes in many influences, from the Afro groove that is central to the album, through to head nodding psych, post-punk, turkish rock, kraut repetition and astral folk.
Goat – Run To Your Mama (Cage & Aviary Remix) – unmastered clip by Cage & Aviary
So, the awesome Goat album ‘World Music’ was voted Piccadilly Records top album of 2012 – congrats to Goat and Rocket Recordings! Rocket got a load of artists to remix one of the tracks, ‘Run To Your Mama’, as a giveaway for Piccadilly to hand out with the album. Unfortunately the wrong version of our remix ended up on the disc, which is fucking annoying, but the proper finished one will be available come the new year, along with a heavy dub coming on vinyl only. This is a clip of the remix, unmastered at this point.

After the auditory feast Soft Rocks have served up over the past year, ESP Institute thought it would be best to pause briefly for digestion. That said, the label have now got their second wind and are pleased to deliver the last in the “Revenge Of Soft Rocks” remix 12″s. Long time disco sorcerer Ray Mang has taken “Mirador De Las Estrellas” to a beautiful place, utilizing the steel drum as a hypnotic hook and editing Jorge Socarras’ memorable Spanish vocals down to an effective sigh. If there was ever a track for your Indian summer, this is it. On the flipside cut “Slowdown”, the boys from Cage & Aviary sprawl out the original extended version of their tough and dubby bonus beats (this bomb is exclusive to this vinyl release). If you know what’s best, you’ll not sleep on this one, after all, there is nothing more pleasing than completing a set…

From within fog and street lamps, Giallo Disco Records return continuing their journey into the mouth of madness with Antoni Maiovvi’s Stockholm Synthdrone EP. Six tracks of sleazed out voodoo soundtracks for the dancefloors of no named clubs in strange cities. Including remixes by Cage & Aviary’s (DFA / The Walls Have Ears) Jamie Paton, New York Bloodwave pioneer Mircalla (Phantasma Disques) and Giallo Disco’s own Vercetti Technicolor.
Darkroom’s electro-tech slimes along the floor like leather clad ectoplasmic spectres, furthering Maiovvi’s own New Beat / Early Detroit fetish. Prisoner Nightdrive is a slow motion cinematic epic. Brooding FM Bass and polyrhythmic arps recall John Carpenter at his most tense. Voodoo Voodoo’s Frizzi-Does-Dirty-House atmospheres could bring the dead back to life through battered floor toms, occult chants and a ghostly piano seemingly detuning itself. Lastly on the 12” EP is a dubbed out rework of Darkroom by Cage & Aviary’s Jamie Paton, right for a subtle and sordid place at 3am for those about to become lovers…
On the digital only version, we include two more remixes, first up a darkwave re-imagining of Prisoner Nightdrive by New York’s Mircalla and a futurist 606 terror-tech remix of Voodoo Voodoo by Vercetti Technicolor.

If someone said “Franco-Teutonic beats”, what would be your first thought? Probably something like, “What the hell is this guy talking about” . . . unless, perhaps, you happened to be listening to something like Astro Lab Recordings upcoming compilation. The aptly-titled Treasure Hunting features, among others, Andrew Weatherall, Kaos, Timothy J Fairplay, and Mugwump, and stands as a special testament to the French label’s inspirations and influences. Treasure Hunting marks the very first compilation released by Astro Lab, but we sincerely hope it won’t be their last. Treasure Hunting was out July 9th and here’s a mix from Jamie Paton of Cage & Aviary fame to help promote it.
