Colin Dale : Abstract Dance Show on Kiss FM 1991

Another cassette rip this time from 1991 and in the helm Colin Dale with his Abstract Dance show on Kiss FM. Anyone unfamiliar with Colin Dale, alongside Colin Favor, he spearheaded and championed early UK, European and US house and techno on his weekly Kiss FM radio show.

This will be up on Soundcloud for one week (starting 23rd May) and then taken down and then replaced by another gem from the archive..

FFF : Shattering The Silence With A Broken Drum Promo Mix

Promo mix for a night F+F=F is playing at in the The Netherlands. Not the longest mix, clocking in at 33 minutes of dark breaks but well worth a listen

The Art Of Audio Phreaks

Apart from the audio therein, the second most pleasing things about collecting vinyl is the artwork.
UK Label Audio Phreaks is one label that constantly brings flush Dubstep with a keen eye for detail on the 12" artwork. By drafting in the UK artist Mooselumps they produce some stunning eye catching artwork on each of its releases.

Heinrich Dressel : Sighing Melodies Thru The Graves

Mannequin is more than proud to announce the forthcoming release of Heinrich Dressel aka Valerio Lombardozzi, the italian producer and mind of one of the best techno-electro labels around, MinimalRome.
After some marvellous releases on Legowelt's Strange Life and Minimal Rome, Heinrich Dressel is finally celebrating the use of vintage synthesizers and driven electronic machines, holding elements of electro and ambient at the same time, but breaking from the genres too, deeply inspired by Heinrich Dressel, the pioneering German archeologist sent to study in the holy city in Monte Testaccio, who drew what is now a major tool for study of Roman amphorae, the "Table of Dressel. Heinrich Dressel is placed in a sort of limbo where John Carpenter meets Drexciya, a sonorous journey through the darker side of the electro, taking the commands of the Elka Synthex, one of the most impressive polysynths in the history of music, planned and manifactured by Mario Maggi in the early 80s, as the commercial brother of the MCS70, synth that gave birth to a masterpice album like "Automat".
“Sighing Melodies Thru The Graves” musically speaking can be described as a captivating hybrid of styles, mixing the chilling-menacing mood of the 70s / 80s lo-fi funkadelic horror soundtracks to outerspace synthesised soundscapes in a pure classy vein.
This is cryptical-kosmische psychedelica with a nice electro retro touch and avant-minimalist vibes. An important contribution and a propulsive cinematic affair.
12’’ EP Version: Limited edition of 300 copies, white vinyl

A1 Sighing melodies thru the graves
A2 The black radiant sky
A3 Nestled against the Aurelian walls
B1 The fifty days of mighty lunacy
B2 Afterlife was writ in water

The LP is available for pre order now for release on 28th May. Buy from Mannequin (here)
