DUCA BIANCO

Harri Pierson bangs the box with his new EP for Duca Bianco, a full thrill mix of disco and house sounds that want to get the party going. 'Instant Message' has a dense mix of raw drum sounds and squelchy synths with interesting melodic designs and steamy female coos. 'Techno Native' is laced up with piano stabs and a hint of old school energy then 'Trippy Too' cuts loose with a head-twisting mix of drums and whistles and bass and pads. 'Young Australians' then brings some big guitar licks to a Balearic beat that is for dancing under the stars. All four of these cuts are unique and compelling.

STAFF COMMENTS

Mine says: Duca Bianco continue their edits series with 4 hot slices from Harri Pierson. There should be something for everyone on here but the stand out for me is the anthemic soft rock chugger Young Australians. I dare you to keep still while this is on... Am about to put it on in the shop and see how long it'll take Andy to perform a bit of air guitar/piano. Watch this space.

Casinoboy makes a triumphant return to Duca Bianco with a sparkling EP that once again shows his studio mastery. Previously featuring alongside luminaries like Rune Lindbaek and Khidja on a well-received compilation, Casinoboy's latest kicks off with 'Honesty' which is a blend of Balearic and breaks that brings a shuffle-and-wiggle experience with uplifting samples and an old-school UK rap edge. 'This Feeling' has a catchy Street Soul feel, while 'Searos' mixes up ambient sounds and Spanish Guitar to evoke the essence of the White Isle. Closing with 'Astral Go Go,' really pumps the party in ways only he knows how.

STAFF COMMENTS

Mine says: Friends of the shop Duca Bianco are back with another varied edit compilation, this time curated by Casinoboy. DB12 013 sold out super quick so don't snooze!

London party heads Good Block get snapped up for a new 12" on the ever more crucial Duca Bianco label here. They are well known for laying down tasteful party sounds at spots like Brilliant Corners and The Yard and count as finds the likes of Cosmic Slop, Habibi Funk and Jamie Tiller. That should give you an idea of what to expect here - a wonderfully bespoke and boutique mix of slow-motion dub, Balearic pop, New Age sounds, Japanese synth and proto-deep house with extra character. It's a bonkers collection that brings real charm to the club.

STAFF COMMENTS

Matt says: Strong contender for sleeve art of the week. Duca Bianco follow up quickfire joints by Talking Drums and Miserymix with another crucial cult collection by rising London stars Good Block.

The Duca Bianco label swerves its usual various artists' format to allow CW - who has appeared on those before - to step up with his own solo EP. He is a mysterious artist but is well known for his immersive record collection and legendary sets on the London scene. He is one-third of the Beauty & The Beat party and brings his unique twists of Afro and soul to this quartet of tunes. 'Karambolage' opens up with lots of big horns and noodling string sounds over a ramshackle beat then things take a cosmic turn on the rather more psychedelic 'Six Times Seven' with its Nippon-koku polyriddims, while 'Ou Ka Jis Fe Kole' is a party starter with a Zouk dub edge and 'Nzimbab' is built on a low slung and swaggering rhythm.

STAFF COMMENTS

Matt says: Duca Bianco follow up in quick succession V/A EPs from our own Miserymix and Talking Drums with another EP of cosmic disco delights, this time by CW.

Duca Bianco is back with one of its special various artists' releases, and a mighty fine one it is too. This one finds four guest producers all with their finest studio tools sharpened and ready for action. Two of the artists are well known but use new aliases - one is Israeli synth and psyche wizards Red Axes who work their magic as Der Sexa on 'Gabi Plane' and another is Beauty & The Beat party man Cedric Woo as CW. He gets nice and twisted here while the other two cuts - one from Italo king Franz Scala who builds slow new wave funk, and one from Manchester's renowned edit kings Talking Drums who offer some lovely leftfield madness on 'DMNB', all make for crucial listening.

STAFF COMMENTS

Matt says: Nice to see Talking Drums nestled in amongst some star-studded royalty. Four tracks of very leftfield dancefloor movements spanning cosmic, industrial & Italo and with not one cliché in range! Top drawer stuff from Duca Bianco.

TRACK LISTING

A1. Franz Scala - For Me
A2. CW - Mind Zou
B1. Der Sexa - Gabi Plane
B2. Talking Drums - DMNB

Jonny 5 is known for his superlative edits as well as heading up the Bahnsteig 23 label and here he returns from time out becoming a father to kick off this new one from Duca Bianco. 'Joy Riding' is loopy disco-post-punk for a peak-time trip. Multi Culti man Dreems then brings the Afro party vibes with his 'Bususua' which is packed with dub fx and steeped in fun. Miserymix throw in their Italo-licked post-disco and punk sounds on 'Adjust Your Love' before a big finale by Black Bones who offers deep and dubby house that has been a secret edit for a while but finally gets unveiled here to great effect as it worms its way into your brain.

STAFF COMMENTS

Matt says: First vinyl outing for our Mine (can you guess which one she is?) who takes to the chopping board like a skilled surgeon, dissecting some lost Italo-themed post-punk jam with the dexterity of a panther! The other joints on offer are also fire making this a release you don't wanna miss!

TRACK LISTING

1. Jonny 5 - "Joy Riding"
2. Dreems - "Bususua"
3. Miserymix - "Adjust Your Love"
4. Black Bones - "Lil' Pil"

Kito Jempere

DB7 003

Saint Petersburg disco spinner, deep house don and advanced level digger Kito Jempere joins the ranks of the Duca Bianco mafia, shunning the fancy handshake and instead securing his entry with two top notch edits of exceptional obscurity. On the A-side, "FKA Lany" chugs along like a peak time power ballad, with a killer synth riff replacing any guitar histrionics. Armed with a bassline which walks slowly downstairs, plenty of fx use and a big emotive female vocal, this is primed for end of night deployment. Over on the flip, "Drakon" shakes asiatic melodies, pop-fusion and Fairlight stylings into a killer bit of 80s pop - in other words, well Balearic!

TRACK LISTING

1. FKA Lany
2. Drakon
