The second chapter of a journey made by a traveler who discovers new lands and mysterious people. Recorded using only analog equipements to add that raw lo-fi flavor.

ELECTRONIC MUSIC/AMBIENT/D’N’B/TRIPHOP

MCKECHNIE, DOUG - SAN FRANCISCO MOOG: 1968-72 (LP/VG+ RECORDS)

'San Francisco Moog: 1968-72' documents a missing link in the history of electronic music, as well as the little-known moment when psychedelic music went electronic. In 1968, Bay Area native Doug McKechnie got hold of one the very first modular Moog synthesizers ever made and began finding his own way to play it. Soon, he was hauling the finicky instrument around to perform improvised concerts at colleges and ballrooms, as well as an ill-fated appearance on the bill at Altamont. Many of the performances were recorded, and the surviving tapes -never before released- capture a free-flowing, transportive sound that fills in the gap between the austere mid-century academic avant-garde and the expansive cosmic suites of Tangerine Dream and the rest of the Berlin School in the '70s. This is not another corny old Moog record. 'San Francisco Moog' sounds as fresh as anything by today's analog-synth heads while bringing to life a lost moment in the development of the music. Limited to 300 copies, with cover art from psychedelic poster artist Richard Taylor.

AFRO-BEAT/FUNK & PSYCH/DESERT BLUES/ETHIOPIQUES

O.K. JAZZ - PAS UN PAS SANS... (2LP) (LP/PLANET ILUNGA)

'THE BOLEROS OF O.K. JAZZ 1957-77' - On a good day there is nothing more joyful in life than indulging in the Congolese bolero. Of all Congolese bands venturing into the bolero, the O.K. Jazz orchestra is by far the king of this musical style which originated in the late 19th century in Cuba. In its nearly forty years of existence, the illustrious band released dozens of boleros, with beautiful compositions mainly by Franco and Vicky, and occasionally from Mujos, Simaro, Kwamy and Edo among others. The slow form of the bolero allowed Franco to express his most profound soul stirrings and create a style of his own. With the suave voice of Vicky and the breathtaking and dramatic guitar touch of Franco, O.K. Jazz was able to capture the true essence of the bolero. Franco's passion for the bolero has certainly contributed to his nickname of 'Franco de mi Amor', especially among his female fans. The favorite theme in the bolero songs of O.K. Jazz was, without doubt, the joy and pain of love, but it also touches on friendship, city life in Kinshasa, laments, politics and even advertising for a shoe brand like the remarkable 'Pas Un Pas Sans Bata', the song which inspired us throughout the long process of making this compilation. The selection chronologically presented here consists for a good part of songs, never reproduced after their original release. Double LP release with 32-page booklet SIDE 1: 1.
