MMDISCOS

MM Discos originally emerges from the passion of two friends who share the same fondness for records made just of vinyl, after years spent hunting, collecting and spinning them. This is driven by the intention of bringing to light the work of talented newcomer artists.

MM Discos is born with no musical prejudices whatsoever but undoubtedly influenced by a certain mix of genres in which one can identify, among others, Disco, Synth-Pop and Italo.

Our first track is a groovy Edit, produced back-to-back by notorious Akirahawks, Capo di Tutti I capi of the Berlin scene and House Mannequin's frontman, and Enzino, responsible of his own editions at Encino's Rec. and one of the most significant representatives of the Balearic sound around the world.

The second cut is brought to you by the enigmatic MSMCI, who has masterfully deployed all his skills to put together a killer House track drizzled with soft-spoken vocals that carries the listener to an evocative world of Daiquiris, palm trees and girls in bikini.

On the B-side, Marvin & Guy coming hard after a series of successes on Hivern Discs and Young Adults, combining Synth-pop and Italo crystalising in a Nordic 80's-influenced Edit ready to rock the dance floor.

And last but not least the ultimate Edit produced by Just John. The ineffable producer from JohnWaynes, well known for his works for Mule Music, Endless Flight and Let's Play House, delivers an inspired self-righteous hymn for Italo Disco ready to become and instant cult classic.

Mmmm yeah, it's time for another MMDISCOS, this time featuring the stellar selections and edit expertise of Franz Scala. Not only is Franz one of the biggest Italo DJs in the game, he's the owner of the excellent Slow Motion imprint, which stands alongside the likes of Red Laser and Bordello A Parigi at the top of the nuovo Italo tree. 
We're in electrifying Italo territory right from the off here as Franz works his magic on Electra's "Are You Automatic", a midtempo mover whose camp vocal examines cybernetic affairs while the chugging sequences and detailed percussion powers on below. Neon-tinged and stiff with hairspray, this high drama heater should move your floor from the warm up to the peak time perfectly. Over on the B1, Franz freaks GJ Lunghi's "Acapulco Nights", drawing every ounce of drama out of the resort-Italo classic. Building up from a majestic bassline, the track grooves through sparkling sequences, sci-fi stabs and swelling pads, peaking with a murmured vocal and big pianos - Italo perfection if you ask me. Not content with flooding your pleasure centres with "Acapulco Nights" Franz takes on Wish Keys' "The One You Love", stripping back the vocals, upping the tempo a little and letting those outrageous instrumental elements come to the fore. Sustained pads, jazz-meets-Italo bass synth and sublime sax take you there, then the uber-80's Cocaine in Rimini romance crashes in like a wave. Italo for the Balearic crowd!

STAFF COMMENTS

Patrick says: Massive Italo edits from the Slow Motion label head. Stepping away from those slamming 4/4 heaters the techno DJs love to drop, this is resort Italo for the Balearic crowd - all end of season melancholy until the next bump arrives. In the bag!

The latest edition of MM Discos comes from top shelf DJ and Modern Obscure boss Pedro Vian, a Barcelona head who wants you to dance differently. On the A-side, "Colours Of Infinity" is a melancholic affair, all emotive pads, sophisticated melodies and introspective textures, twisted wonderfully into a shuffling serving of deep house. In its original form, the synthpop inspired "El Sueno Lucido" employs a hefty 80s snare and heartbreaking sequences to convey the bittersweet beauty of a fading fling, while Massimiliano Pagliara transforms the cut into a poppers anthem via pumping Italo bass and additional synthwork.

STAFF COMMENTS

Patrick says: Barcelona's Pedro Vian offers something fresh on his MMDiscos debut, offering a textured take on sad house backed with a wave-tinged end of the season affair, which gets a mega Italo flip from Massimiliano Pagliara.

MM Discos return with another super limited, vinyl only release. Helsinki based producer Stiletti-Ana has previously graced Sex Tags UFO, I'm a Cliche and Haista with his swirling, space-aligned sound. Focusing his style into an industrial, post-apocalyptic landscape "Saturn 02" is a gleefully melancholic, Lynchian trip; possessing a similar kind of eeriness as Kyle Dixon & Michael Stein's "Stranger Things" motif and scorched with analogue saturation. Modern Obscure Music's' head honcho, Pedro Vian takes over the controls on the B-side, leaving his own personal signature: a shadowy epic, subtle in stature but gigantic in feeling, it's evocative synth lines and arps perfectly emboldening the cinematic, wide-screen nature of the track. A final mix is provided with no drum support as we let go of the space cord and float out into infinity...ha!

STAFF COMMENTS

Sil says: If you dig the waxes series (tusk, horn and, of course, porn) then you are in safe territory. Intergalactic sounds filter through the machine with strong cinematic feelings attached.
Loving the original and the beatless version. Give it a listen, will not dissappoint.
