NOEL GALLAGHER'S HIGH FLYING BIRDS -It's A Beautiful World - 12" €11.99
Ltd Edition Yellow VinylLimited Yellow Vinyl 12". Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds release new single It’s A Beautiful World – the second to be taken from the Number 1 album Who Built the Moon?, following the success of the first single Holy Mountain. The hypnotic track features ambient electronica and sharp production from acclaimed producer, DJ and composer David Holmes, and a French spoken word segment inspired by Gallic art house cinema. Producer David Holmes says: “The track had so much space and was feeling great. After Noel wrote the song he asked me about getting a French vocalist to do some kind of spoken word, so I called my friend Charlotte Courbe and played her an extract from a French short film that I always loved and wanted to borrow from. She then produced an astounding piece of writing that contrasted Noel’s song and music so beautifully.” It comes backed by It’s A Beautiful World (Instrumental) and God Help Us All (Demo).

DANCE / ELECTRONIC
ALEX S - Neverending EP - 12" €11.99 (Made Of Concrete)
Kicking off the release in style, - Consciousness Outline' lays down the groundwork for a solid slice of punchy techno. Featuring a minimal array of elements, which aptly intertwine instead of seeing new layers pile up, it's a gradual build up of a powerful groove. Hypercolour & Soma Records alum Roberto Clementi takes on remix duties, revamping - Consciousness Outline' into a cavernous techno affair. Switching the main focus on the percussive leads proves a good venture, as it results into a piece with major dance appeal. - Penny Drop' dives in with a spacious loop, which keeps centre stage throughout the entire construction. Overall, it's an airy track, with ample pads and a loose yet gripping melody. - Neverending' rounds off the pack in an atmospherical, upbeat fashion. Ascending synth pads make for an uplifting ambiance, all set on a backbone of electrifying percussion.
ANSWER CODE REQUEST - Gens - 2 x LP €25.99 (Ostgut Ton)
