CAROLINE TRUE

Manicured Noise

Metronome (remixes)

The illusive Manchester Post-Punk/Punk-Funk act Manicured Noise have been figures of intrigue since CTR released the Northern Stories 1978/80 collection in 2006. In their lifetime they released only two 7” on PRE Records & recorded a BBC Radio session for Kid Jensen. These tantalising hints at what could have been found their way to the turntable of New York's Cousin Cole, who digitally flipped the post punk monster into a hard hitting house varient back in the blog days. Now thanks, to Caroline True, you get that beast on vinyl for the first time. 

A remix that’s hard to pigeonhole-Sax-Banger? Post-Punk--Funk? But one that has been featured heavily by DJ luminaries such Ben UFO (Hessle Audio) & Job Jobse at Dekmantel where the track ruled the evening back in 2017 & again this year. It’s grown in popularity totally organically across Europe’s more discerning dancefloors & has many admirers.. Flip it for another wavy gem in the form of Matt Wedderkopp and James Taylor's mix of "Moscow 80" - a chilly play for any advanced DJ.

Matt Sewell’s A Crushing Glow Presents DrumTalk

Out Of The Blackness Into The Blue

Continuing their endless string of essential releases, Caroline True bring us the latest collaborative project from the mighty Matt Sewell, this time with london producer DrumTalk. Taking to the Secret Sundaze studio, DrumTalk drifts away from the club-focus of his releases on Tru-Thoughts, Soundway and Huntley & Palmers, syncing into the sublime vibrations of A Crushing Glow for two meditative synth suites. On the A-side, "Out Of The Blackness, Into The Blue" delivers drum box bossa, dreamlike sequences and celestial bliss-tones, making a connection with a wider cosmic consciousness. If you dig on the library styles of Clara Mondshine, the spacier, synthier end of the kosmische spectrum or the slow and spangled moments of Patrick Cowley's porn oeuvre, you're gonna love this. The flip continues the cosmic voyage, enjoying a little extra thrust from a blorpy bass synth as we lose ourselves in the nebulous goo of e-flute, fluttering sine waves and warming white noise. I imagine this is what Arthur C Clarke's Starchild listened to when he was getting stoned...

STAFF COMMENTS

Patrick says: Well this is a delight! Aside from the sublime space-prog sleeve art, and eye catching coloured disc, this release holds a pair of stunning intergalactic synthscapes, perfect for fans of European library music, Berlin school electronics or Patrick Cowley's post-orgasmic bliss outs.
