Man oh man, Isle Of Jura know how to pick out a reissue! This time round it's the all time Italo classic, "The Voice Of Q", a leftfield electro disco gem that's rocked the spot for everyone from IF to Morgan Geist to Il Bosco etc. While it's been readily available in recent years as a standalone 12" or on the Dark Disco comp, it's worth noting that these releases are BOOTLEGS and sound DOGSHIT. Now, those heroes at Isle Of Jura have secured the official rights, sent the masters to Matt Colton for a necessary clean, and chucked in a previously unreleased Q killer for good measure.

Back in 1982, Q picked up some interplanetary frequencies and laid down a gamechanger. "The Voice Of Q" delivers a discoid 4/4, spiced up with syncopated electro funk hats, a garbled sequence, slap bass, sci fi synth tones and killer vocoder work. The original mix introduces some peppy vocals for those who feel frisky, while the B-side keeps things stripped back for cybernetic dancefloor freaks. The previously unreleased "Keep It Strong" shifts gears a little, packing punchy piano licks over a shuffling garage groove to totally nail the proto house vibe. Warm, light and euphoric, this shoulder roller should sit perfectly next to "Casa Beat", "Free Yourself" and Soft House Company.


Matt says: Back in stock and sounding better than ever. This supersedes all the other previous bootlegs. As timeless a slice of Italian greatness as one could possibly get. One of those every home (read: DJ) needs one records.

Isle Of Jura conclude their 12" trilogy of The Pearls, showing the origins of the band with two playful Rootsy numbers, ‘No Follow Bad Company’ and ‘Duke Street’ backed with the essential Dub versions. Both tracks went on to feature on The Pearls debut LP ‘The War’ released on Sly & Robbie’s Taxi label in 1981.
On the A-side the group warn us about the perils of peer pressure over a shuffling and sunny riddim topped with some tight guitar riffs while the flip houses a sweet Island love song.
