Previously released on cassette in 2011.2011's NoMaps traces a transitional period between two coasts, soundtracking Mndsgn’s transplant from New Jersey to Los Angeles. The 15 tracks take their own detours, in and out of softsynth compositions, textured loops and hard bops to illustrate relocation and it’s reflective nature. Collage by Yuk.

40 Acres N Sum Mula

a propos: 
Berlin rapper JuJu Rogers presents his highly anticipated sophomore LP „40 Acres N Sum Mula“ feat Sampa the Great and productions by Farhot (Isaiah Rashad, Talib Kweli), Like (the producer behind Kendrick Lamar’s „Sing About Me”), Crada (Drake, Kid Cudi) and more...Coming a long way - from his widely acclaimed debut (“Although we don’t usually bestow the ‘future classic’ title to an album (...) we are just ready to call it what it is!”; Music is my Sanctuary) „From The Life Of A Good For Nothing“, supporting DMV's veteran Oddisee on tour throughout Europe, being the 2nd artist to ever be featured on COLORS, the successful Bluestaeb collabo „LIT – Lost In Translation“ and his regular appearance at Splash Festival - JuJu Rogers teams up with Jakarta Records again to finally return to the big screen presenting his highly anticipated 2nd LP „40 Acres N Sum Mula“ providing nothing but bangers with an attitude and bringing back that ‘Real Shit’!The Schweinfurt born and bi-lingual & multi-culturally raised JuJu Rogers comes from an army family. His father, a GI who owns an extensive Soul and Jazz collection of records and a German mother with Austrian roots. After moving to Berlin in 2012 he soon set his mark in the local scene by joining the group Man of Booom. His solo debut „From The Life Of A Good-For-Nothing“ was released by Jakarta Records (The Berlin based label behind critically acclaimed releases by artists such as Anderson .Paak, Kaytranada, Mura Masa, Akua Naru or Ta-Ku) and displayed himself as a searching soul & Eichendorff fan in the most lyrical sense. The Coming-Of-Age-Story behind it oscillates between capitalist bottom lines and free creativity as higher ground.JuJu has no problems telling it like it is: "After talking about depression, temptation, the craving for money in a capitalist world with all its possible consequences, after asking questions of identity with the clear answer: "Babylon" represents the outlook and possible perspective, the break away moment of the album. It's a song of strength and progress. It also creates a very positive vibration as the last song of the album which made a lot of sense to me as the whole album holds a more mystical vibe to it.“The new Album “40 Acres N Sum Mula” unifies the mind state of an Afro-German with the power of observation with German political landscape of Berlin. Heavy sampled beats from his debut album are replaced by contemporary musical landscapes, productions by outstanding musicians and producers from all over the world.JuJu Rogers about his album title: “»40 Acres N Sum Mula«! — Forty acres and a mule refers to Special Field Orders No. 15, a promise made by the United States government for agrarian reform to aid formerly enslaved black farmers. Approved by president Abraham Lincoln, the field orders were written 1865, and specifically allotted each family a plot of land no larger than 40 acres (16 ha) plus a mule for the agrarian reform effort. I changed »a mule« into »sum Mula« in order to place the legitimate struggle for equal rights and reparations into the context of our current capitalist world and underline the historic connection to the very beginning of today’s society.Sound, lyrics and vibrations on this album represent a mixture of ancestral spirit and contemporary characteristics and lead you through the self-reflecting and rebellious thoughts of a black man born and raised in Germoney.” - JuJu Rogers.

Oriental Groove

auteur:

photo: 
a propos: 
In the summer of 1986, inspired by gypsies from Turkey and the Balkan region, a Kurdish immigrant and six Austrians locked themselves in a small rehearsal room in Vienna's 5th district. What came out of these sessions sounded rather unusual for the local music scene.Using songs from the Eastern Mediterranean and Middle East as a vehicle for improvisations based on odd scales and rhythms, and looking for ways to adapt them to their instruments and European feel, the band gave birth to its own sound signature. Delivering some of the tightest oriental jazz fusion recorded that decade.Submitted by soundman Michael Fitsch as his end of the year project at audio engineering school, the album was ultimately released on his teacher Hans Hartel's Ha Ha Soundwave label. Mostly sold in venues during legendary performances, Oriental Groove fatally faded from memory since the group disbanded a few months after its release.To conclude a year of investigation and continuous efforts to put the band members back in touch 30 years later, Hot Mule Records is proud to bring this groundbreaking record back to life with an official reissue, carefully remastered from the original source.Limited Deluxe Edition of 500 copies in tip-on sleeve, including extensive liner notes by Donna Leake, with exclusive photos handpicked in the band's archives.

Brasilian Sound

auteur:

a propos: 
L’ALBUM 60-70’S DE MUSIQUE BRÉSILIENNE MADE IN FRANCERÉÉDITION À L’OCCASION DES 50 ANSA la fin des années 60/début des années 70, le Brésil faisait rêver. Il était à la mode, un peu partout en Europe, et donc aussi en France. On pense à "Samba Sarava" sur la BO du film Un Homme et Une Femme, à Françoise Hardy avec son album produit par Tuca, à Isabelle Aubret et son "Casa Forte" ou à France Gall avec "Zozoi". Trois musiciens brésiliens exilés en France, Edson Lobo (basse), Fernando Martins (piano) et Nelson Serra (batterie), forment le Trio Camara. Ils rencontrent un groupe d’amis amoureux de la musique brésilienne, tous professionnels de la musique, mais qui souhaitaient rester anonymes, d’où le nom de leur groupe : Les Masques. Claude Germain (Les Double Six), José Bartel, Marie Vassiliu, Pierre Vassiliu... les chanteurs formant Les Masques sont loin d’être des inconnus. En 1969 ils entrent donc au Studio Davout avec le Trio Camara pour enregistrer Brasilian Sound.Composé de 11 titres, c’est un superbe album, magistralement produit et enregistré, qui s’écoute d’une traite et nous transporte dans des ambiances à la fois légères et naïves, si propres à cette époque. Tiré à 500 e xemp l a i r e s s u r C B S l ’a l b um n e s e r a malheureusement pas un succès et il est aujourd’hui quasiment impossible de trouver le pressage original français (sonnant bien mieux que le pressage canadien paru à la même époque). Cette réédition du Très Groove Club est donc la bienvenue, pour que 50 ans après sa parution, un plus large public puisse découvrir ce magnifique album, écho d’une époque définitivement révolue.

a propos: 
Une aura de mystère plane autour de Jacky Giordano, musicien de studio ayant majoritairement oeuvré dans l’illustration musicale. On lui doit le fantastique label Freesound (Schifter, Philopsis, Challenger), on le retrouve sur Montparnasse 2000 avec Pop in Devil’s Train, mais aussi chez Timing avec Timing N°1 et Timing N°5 sous le pseudo Jacky Nodaro, chez Musax avec Boucles Rythmiques sous le pseudonyme José Pharos ou Black Devil Disco Club dont la paternité sur ce disque est encore disputée entre Bernard Fêvre et lui. Car Jacky Giordano n’était pas un enfant de coeur, loin de là, et aura malheureusement été plus connu pour ses démêlés avec la justice que pour sa musique. C’est son travail pour le label l’Illustration Musicale (IM) qui peut maintenant être redécouvert grâce à cette réédition du Très Groove Club.Organ Plus (IM 26) est la suite d’Organ (IM 24), également réédité par Le Très Groove Club. Le titre est ici un peu mensonger, l’orgue n’étant pas un élément prépondérant de l’album qui fait la part belle au Fender Rhodes, string machine, grosse basse de synthé et clavinet. "Be Carefull", "Riffologic", "Twilight" : Jacky Giordano nous offre un jazz-funk au tempo ralenti, sans se départir de sa mélancolie et de son groove low-fi qui rendent ses morceaux immédiatement identifiables quelque soit le label ou le pseudonyme qu’il utilise.

Une boite de banlieue à moitié vide un dimanche soir, un ciel gris sur l’esplanade de la Défense, la bande-son d’un film policier français de seconde zone… Voilà où nous emmène Jacky Giordano avec Organ et ses morceaux déjà cultes comme "Interrogation Point", "Project Problematic", ou "Owls Night" pour ceux qui ont eu la chance de mettre les mains sur un pressage original de ce disque.

a propos: 
This is cool jazz album all the way around. From the black and white hand drawn to the fact that it came out of Fresno, California (not exactly a hotbed for jazz) to the handful of styles present (straight ahead, funky, free, and even a raga), this record’s got it going on. 500 copies pressHigh quality musicianship and some far out stoner tracks make this album stand head and shoulders above most of its private peers. Original very limited issue (rumor has it that only 300 were pressed). This album was a very limited press that was handed out at their shows and sold to local record stores. Only together for nine months, Mike Selesia (who plays Sax and Flute) and band recorded this album in one day presented this fascinating hybrid of early 60s Coltrane, early 70s Miles Davis.

Musica Esporadica

photo: 
a propos: 
MFM044 sees the reissue of the cult Spanish studio project Música Esporádica with their incredible one off, self-titled album.Another Suso Saiz side project, this one grew out of his work with his band Orquesta De Las Nubes, who were themselves the subject of a Music From Memory compilation last year.The idea of getting Orquesta De Las Nubes to collaborate with Glen Velez and Layne Redmond arose after the two American musicians visited Spain during a series of seminars on frame drum techniques in 1985. Having met Glen Velez some years before in Madrid whilst Glen was performing with the Steve Reich Ensemble, Suso Saiz and Glen Velez quickly formed a strong friendship over their mutual love of non-Western music and the potentials of repetition within music. The two would play, talk and drinks for many hours in Suso’s studio space whenever Glen was in Madrid.During one such session in 1985, Glen and Suso would be joined by Orquesta De Las Nubes and Spanish friend and musician Miguel Herrero. With exciting new ideas flowing quickly and easily, Suso decided to immediately call Track Studios in Madrid to see if they might have a space to record some of the material. With just a few days available the group would record for about 12, with what Suso would describe as ‘incredible fluency’, by which time they would have recorded the album they would later title Música Esporádica.After its release 34 years ago Música Esporádica sounds as stunning as ever and Music From Memory are delighted to be able to share the fluency, spontaneity and close friendship which fuelled the recording of this amazing album.

Ten To Ten

photo: 
a propos: 
Skyf Connection (pronounced skAyf) was a short lived project by long time friends Anthony Mthembu and Enoch Nondala. At the time they were working for Annic Music, an independent label run by married couple Anne and Nic Blignaut. Although the label was known mostly for Zulu, Sotho, Tsonga and other traditional styles, they had a few Disco releases on the label including groups like Keith Hutchinson’s Focus and Enoch’s discovery Lena, who went on to have huge success under the name Ebony a few years later.In 1984, when an artist didn’t show up for a booked session they decided to make use of the studio time and began working on a demo. At the time Anthony and Enoch had been playing for a year at a new club called Gamsho, located on a farm on the outskirts of Kliptown Soweto. Along with Blackie Sibisi, Sepate Mokoena and Elijah “chippa” Khumalo they made up the resident house band. Due to cultural boycotts and American artists refusing to perform in the country, locals took it upon themselves to fill the market with the American sound the crowds demanded. The demo they recorded at Blue Tree Studios was going to be their product they could use to promote their brand of the American sound. They then took the demo to Universal Studios where their friend and trusted engineer Jan “fast fingers” Smit was working. It would be here that they would polish their demo into something they could take to their bosses and have pressed. Equipped with a DX 7, Linn Drum and some Juno synthesizers they were on their way. Jan lived up to his name and programmed the drums, it is rumoured he could program in almost real time, a skill that translated to the local arcade where he held high scores on many machines. Enoch would be singing and playing guitar while Anthony would do all the Bass and Keyboards. The result was 4 funky party anthems with synth work like no other recording at the time. Their take on what they believed the crowd would want to hear at the beloved club they called home.From start to finish the 4 tracks portray what would have been a standard night at the Gamshu. Although the club would open earlier and the standard hours of most clubs was 6 to 6 , the band would start playing at 10pm. With their standard set time and Anthony and Enoch unique view on what a Disco should be, they chose the motto Ten to Ten as the album title because those were the hours when they were the stars and Disco ruled the dance floor. To get to the club was a bit difficult, you needed to drive along an empty road where thieves waited for any patrons trying their luck walking after dark. Since there was no transport during the night, the safest way to get home was to wait till the next morning to walk home. Even though in the summer months of Johannesburg light begins to peek in just after 4am, crowds refused to leave and stayed enjoying good music and company until 10am. The lead off track “Let’s Freak Together” has powerful lyrics encouraging people to let go of their worries, put aside any differences and let the music bring everyone to freak and dance together. The whole album is about the joy we can all feel when we share the same moments and how music can bring people together in a unique way, a philosophy shared with the original nightclubs of 70s New York. This approach to music is where the name Skyf Connection comes from, translating from slang to mean the connection we create through sharing, in this case Music and good times.Skyf Connection would go on to play at Gamsho till the club’s closure in 1986. In those years their popularity lead to being booked for private events like weddings and birthday parties, as well as gigs in some other venues like Mofolo Hall. They would share the stage with many artists through the years learning artist’s songs and providing support as a backing band. After the club closed Anthony would go on to join the house band at The Pelican, another famous club located in Orlando East, as well as dabbling with songwriting for artists like Phumi Maduna and helping Enoch on many projects through the years. Enoch would ditch live music altogether and immerse himself in studio work, starting full time as a house producer and A&R for the recently formed Ream Music. He would go on to produce hit albums for pop artists like Percy Kay and Makwerhu but made his mark discovering countless artists that would become stars in the traditional market. They would remain friends until Anthony’s passing in 2016 and although Anthony is no longer with us his spirit lives in the grooves he left on this one of a kind record. His wife Vinolia will be accepting his portion of the profits on his behalf. MORE LIKE THIS
