Giuliano Sorgini

Lavoro E Tempo Libero

    Originally released in 1980 on Goldfinger label and realized to score various documentaries for Italian Rai TV, Sonor Music Editions is happy to release an highly sought-after Italian Library jewel with mental Disco-Funk cuts and sleazy groove dopeness. "LAVORO E TEMPO LIBERO" by the eclectic maestro Giuliano Sorgini is another stellar recording from the comprehensive Italian Library world, very different from his 70s masterpieces like Under Pompelmo or Zoo Folle but with a perfect early 80s sound and clear funky greatness mixed with some very beautiful chill jams.

    An insane set of Dark Funk bangers filled with drum breaks and beats / different refined moods with soothing airs and loungy suites / exquisite flute notes by Nino Rapicavoli / sharp guitars and sleazy basslines. Easily one of the top albums out of Library labels Usignolo/Goldifinger with renewed artwork and remastered sound for the joy of collectors, DJs and sample hunters.

      Alberto Baldan Bembo

      Lingua D'argento OST

      Sonor Music Editions are excited to release this stunning Italian soundtrack originally issued in 1976 which is widely considered a true holy grail of the genre and Funk Exotica masterpiece. Originally composed by maestro and orchestra conductor Alberto Baldan Bembo for the movie soundtrack "Ecco lingua d'argento", starring the sexy Carmen Villani. The album includes many spellbinding and powerful grooves filled with great basslines, dope wah wah and killer Funky sounds; a countless amount of drum beats with dancing Fender Rhodes, Disco-Funk arrangements with driving tropical percussions, dreamy cinematic strings and sexy female chorus harmonize. Top-notch stuff for any crate digger / groove hunter / beat maker / record collector and vintage music vinyl maniac out there. Incredible session, pinnacle of maestro Bembo production and a real masterpiece from the beginning to the end! 

      Founded in early 70s by historical Rai TV trumpeter and composer Cicci Santucci (Looking Around, On The Underground Road etc.), New Tape grew up during the golden period of Italian music production and was dedicated to experimentation of new forms of sound, always hailing from the solid jazz basis of the musicians and theme music inspiration. Andrea Galtieri aka Cavalier Piscopo sequenced the very best bits from the whole label's repertoire alongside exclusive liner notes, with an explosive mix of jazz-rock, bossa, spellbinding groove and raw experimental stuff.

      '"Mixed Grill" opens this series, composed by the maestro's alias, Girosan, along with Lesiman (aka Paolo Renosto) who added a more esoteric and captivating atmosphere, closer to English progressive rock. "Rengran Mix" and "Tropical" follow, with music by Paolo Renosto and the old avant-garde connoisseur, Romolo Grano. This work gave way to electronic instrumentation and weird experimentation, and was built on a rich rhythmical carpet - tropical percussions, rock and blues inspired vibes, sleazy psych, and jazz improvisations. Music from “Rengran Mix” was also used as the soundtrack for the TV programme 'Futili Motivi', and also featured the great backing sound of I Marc 4 with the accompaniment of Nora Orlandi's warm vocals.

      The trademark of the label, and the most important production, is the fourth album, "Mirage" by Cicci Santucci and Enzo Scoppa themselves. This record is an explosive mix of elegant jazz, funk, and psychedelia, where every instrument finds its expressive space. We can clearly hear the connection on both the "On the Underground Road" and "Looking Around" albums, recorded that same year, bringing that unmistakable underground jazz dopeness typical of the magical duo of Santucci and Scoppa.

      The last album of the series is "Appunti Di Guerra" by the mysterious Ruscigan – a very obscure alias which probably belongs to Renosto and Guido Baggiani. This work features complex and dramatic sounds properly composed for war scenes and gloomy atmospheres, with a large assortment of percussion, distorted effects, and tape manipulation – an album that foreshadowed what would become industrial music.

      With a ridiculously small pressing of only 100 copies per title, "New Tape" is among the most interesting discoveries to date in terms of original production library music, and as a result, a very respectable journey begins inside the creative underground jazz of 1970s.'

      Original soundtrack for the erotic thriller movie from 1976 directed by Massimo Pirri. Outstanding and 100% essential Italian OST containing top-notch Giallo and sleazy thrilling music with dark, fuzzy, funky and definitively trippy sounds that put this amazing soundtrack on high demand. Euro Sex movie themes & arrangements with the classic Italian Giallo sound of the time filled with funky drums & breaks dopeness, spaced-out downtempo beats and hypnotic basslines / dark orchestrations with threatening bells and swirling, filtered-out Hammond organ / sinister female chorus / fuzzy cues and captivating Psychedelic moods / ringing thriller vibes and dramatic moments / menacing Progressive riffs / sleazy wah-wah, heavy piano and sweeping strings. For fans of Nicolai / Morricone Giallo and Thriller cults. Terrific Italian OST!

      Music has been remastered from the original master tapes using the original tape cuts as source. The Bonus CD included features more outtakes from the original recording sessions. 


      Originally released in 1972 on the micro-label Dischi Egede, Edmondo Giuliani's "Il Mare: Musica Con Strumenti Elettronici" is an incredibly rare example of aquatic Italian Library music, recorded as the score for an obscure documentary on sealife. Within these well pressed grooves lie infectious jazz tones and trippy electronic abstractions, sounding out the ocean floor with abyssal echoes, iridescent sonics and marine-machine themes. The first part of Sonor's Underwater Library tryptych, "Il Mare" looks as good as it sounds thanks to some sublime artwork.

      Ltd LP Info: Limited edition of 500 copies on 180 gram vinyl.

      Sonor's aquatic library trilogy continues with maestro Bruno Zambrino's soundtrack for Nestore Ungaro's 1970 TV series "Racconti Di Mare". A highpoint of Italy's underwater insanity, this library gem is a total trip, boasting crazy psychedelia, killer drum breaks, oceanic bossa and huge underwater moods. The loungy atmospheres remind of sea trips nostalgia with the flowing sweet scat vocals broken by the spaced-out Underwater marine vibes. Unmissable Italian OST!

      Sonor Music Editions dig deep into the bulging bag of Italian Library greats and pluck out some more mysterious magic for the heads out there. The catchy "UST 7013" is yet another legendary jam on the Fonit Library series 'Hi-Fi International' composed by none other than the mad maestro Stelvio Cipriani. Probably written for some obscure movie, this infamous session from 1976 (only recently discovered by the digging community) immediately became a holy grail for DJs and collectors. As we dive beyond that expressionist sleeve we're treated to some thoroughly cinematic vibes, as Morricone-esque western and romantic movie themes rub shoulders with insane beats and spacey avant-garde.
