Hot Rocks

HOT R.S. = House Of The Rising Sun. They were a South African disco rock band who published their first discs in 1977. Their first two lps featured extended disco versions of rock classics. You can probably guess which famous track was covered on this, their initial effort. It's extended to over 14 minutes and features quite a bit of cheese (cake). 2 more tracks on the b-side also with a heavy disco flavor.

the growing bin informs

I have bought a record lately and I love it. Its a comp and it is called "Future Cosmic Grooves". Library stuff only. Had a few tracks on record already but spend way too much money on those. Now I got a few more (that I couldn't afford as original copies anyway) and I'm damn happy with it. You may get it at your local recordstore or buy it directly from the man who made it here.

listen to the radio...

I just wanted to let you guys know that from tomorrow (tuesday sept. 21st) I'm going to have monthly show on called "the joy of cooking". I'd be happy if you'd drop in for some lovely tunes. If you dig the music we post here you might like the stew I'm about to cook there.

Cheers, Basso

PS. The show is now archived and you can listen here

Thanks for Visiting!

From those three Craig Leon records I know (Visiting, Nommos, Tapes Of Atoya) this one's my favourite. Wonderful mellow and atmospheric tracks alternating with uptempo electronica. (Discogs describes it "Leftfield, Dark Ambient, Abstract, Illbient, Ambient" : ) Check out his œuvre as a producer - pretty impressive list he got there. Pretty great record you get here...

Thanks for visiting, folks. May I now lead you to the almighty Lunar Atrium because this record has been posted there in February already! All props to NRC and thanks to anonymous for the heads up. The link to my own rip from original vinyl is still in the comments.
