REVIEW: LUMINOCITY SANTIAGO

Slowmotion III (Orkidea Remix) - Solarstone & Orkidea - Black Hole Recordings

There’s not a ghost of a chance that Orkidea’s remix of his and Solarstone’s third ‘Slowmotion’ action will become the most club-spun version. The Solarstone remix’s more floor-bound direction and Orkidea’s 13+ minutes runtime put paid to that. It does, though, leave acres of room for some stylistic indulgence and through long, gripping often semi-cinematic and near sci-fi-esque sequences, it’s nothing if not engaging. 

The Greyhounds - Mosca - Not So Much

Mosca's first release on his spanking new Not So Much imprint was decent, but this second excursion is a far more interesting proposition. The Greyhounds' big-room thunderousness sounds like dub-heavy filler, at first, but when it breaks into ambitious, melancholy strings, it becomes a different animal entirely – suddenly it's all mood and menace, and it's quite superb. Over, Clinical Trial is sturdy, steadying fare, a dark and dangerous thing of bleak beauty.  

Dumbo Dumbo/Miracle - Standard Planets & Arthur’s Landing - Fin A Dee Six

After a collaborative effort with krautrock legend, Harald Grosskopf (Ashra/Cosmic Jokers), Standard Planets team up with Arthur Russell affiliates, Arthur’s Landing, for the release of this interesting, no-wave oddity. Of historical note, the preparation for ‘Dumbo Dumbo’ was completed, in parallel, during the fabled Dinosaur L sessions of 1978, but shelved until now, with Arthur’s Landing piecing together the remnants; you can clearly hear the groundwork, now given a fitting restoration. To accompany, the coiling ‘Miracle’ holds an exquisite charm that suggests the sublime synth-pop stamp of Talk Talk.

Solito - Jose Padilla - International Feel

As much as Wolf Muller and Bubble Club add a certain twist of modernity into ‘Solito’, it’s the unmistakeable sounds and arrangements that can only come from within a veteran and resident of the Balearic scene himself, that result in ‘Solito’s authentic appeal.  IF continue the Balearic renaissance in classic and true to its roots form.  Beautiful.
