4x Neues auf MINIMAL WAVE
Vier neue VÖs auf MINIMAL WAVE, dem Label von VERONICA VASICKA:
Soma Holiday - Shake Your Molecules EP
Minimal Wave is proud to present a remastered reissue of Soma Holiday‘s cult classic, Shake Your Molecules. Soma Holiday was a Franco-American duo consisting of Jean-Marc Vallod (FR) and Jane Honicker (US), based in Williamsburg, Brooklyn back in the early 1980s. They recorded “Shake Your Molecules” along with “Too Many People” and “Art Dimension” in 1984, at Unique Studios in Manhattan. The studio was known for being the first NYC studio with MIDI capabilities. With the help of Eric Dufaure, they had their 12” released on Cachalot Records in the US, and later a further pressing was made by Les Disques Du Soleil Et De L’Acier in France. Whilst in NYC, they worked with Jay Burnett, a protégé of Arthur Baker, who was active in the synth-pop, hip hop and electro scenes. He engineered their 24 track recording sessions at Unique and later went on to collaborate with Adam ‘MCA’ Yauch of the Beastie Boys on a 12” for Def Jam as well as doing a mix of the cult classic I.O.U. by Freeez. That quintessential NYC electro / hop hop sound infused with the French New Wave sensibility is what ended up making “Shake Your Molecules” such a unique dance floor hit. Proudly, we present four beautifully remastered tracks by Soma Holiday, the original “Shake Your Molecules” mix, the unreleased dub version and two other unreleased outtakes of “Too Many People” and “Art Dimension”, all from their 1984 studio recordings at Unique Recording Studios. Soma Holiday’s Shake Your Molecules EP will be pressed on 180 gram oxblood vinyl and limited to 999 copies. Full color gloss sleeve with two sided insert featuring photograph of Soma Holiday in front of their home in Brooklyn and full liner notes with text by Jean-Marc Vallod. Sound samples linked below. Release date: April 30, pre-order your copy here, $22.
Sandra Electronics - Want Need EP
Minimal Wave is proud to present a 6 song EP by the UK/US duo Sandra Electronics. Originally formed as Sandra Plays Electronics by Karl O’Connor (aka Regis) in 1988, the project has evolved over the years to become a collaborative endeavor with Juan Mendez (aka Silent Servant). Three of the tracks were first released as an Untitled 10” on Downwards in 2010, and the record quickly sold out. Those songs have been re-edited and remastered for this EP, and three more rare demos and live versions have been added. The songs can be described as hypnotic industrial electronic mantras with enigmatic keyboards and treated vocals. Each track draws the listener in, with its repetitive psychedelic percussion and dark affected vocal. The record is a hand-numbered edition of 999 copies pressed on 180 gram ultra clear vinyl, and housed in a high quality heavy weight printed sleeve featuring a vintage photograph of Samia Gamal. Release date: April 30th, 2014, with special signed copies available for sale on May 10th at the Brookyln Flea RBMA Record Fair. Sandra Electronics will be doing an exclusive DJ set and record signing that day. Sound samples below. Track B1, the Protection Now (demo) was also featured on Veronica Vasicka’s LN-CC mix 8 minutes in. Pre-order your copy here, $20.
CITI013 Further Reductions - Woodwork LP
Cititrax is proud to present a full length LP by Brooklyn duo Further Reductions. Shawn O’Sullivan and Katie Rose formed Further Reductions in 2008 as an outlet for their shared passion of electronic dance music. O’Sullivan, known for his recent techno releases as Vapauteen on L.I.E.S., 400PPM on Avian and Civil Duty (with Beau Wanzer of Streetwalker) on The Corner has been quite active lately blurring the lines between techno and noise music. With Further Reductions, O’Sullivan’s rhythmic sensibility is fused with Rose’s pop leanings to create super lush and atmospheric tracks that work both on and off the dance floor. Informed by the sounds of classic techno and early house, they subtly substitute the structure of functional club music with a more primal absorption based in their unique collaboration. Seductive vocals coupled with organically evolving sequences create a complex narrative that penetrates the subconscious in a way that conventional club music rarely threatens to. Woodwork is an edition of 999 copies pressed on 160 gram clear vinyl with purple and silver splatter, presented in a high gloss printed LP jacket. Release date: April 30th, 2014. Track A1, High End Basics was featured on Veronica Vasicka’s LN-CC mix as well as her visit to Benji B’s BBC Radio 1 show. Pre-order your copy here, $20.
Sandra Electronics - Sessions (Cassette)
Minimal Wave is excited to present a cassette of Sandra Electronics sessions. These are recordings based on their live sets as well as the first recordings of Sandra Electronics that were made in Birmingham during the late 1980's and 90s. The A side of the tape features reworked rehearsal takes of tracks which first appeared on the early Downwards 7"s and in 2011 were released as part of the White Savage Dance EP. They also include two versions of Her Needs, which we had released under the Sandra Plays Electronics pseudonym in March, 2013. The B side of the tape contains the original recordings from those Downwards 7"s, all made in Birmingham during the late 1980's and 90s. For the first time ever, we present to you the quintessential Sandra Electronics collection of rare outtakes and early recordings. For now, the collection is available as an edition of 300 number stamped cassette copies, to be released in conjunction with the RBMA / Brooklyn Flea Record Fair on May 10th, 2014. Digital release to follow. Pre-order your copy here, $12.
