This player previews “Beletronic”, holding 3 otherworldly Caribbean electronic dance floor cuts! Arousing prog-zouk and abstract futurism from the French West Indies by synthesist Claude Rodap, released on vinyl for the first time.

In the early eighties, a time where French Caribbean musicians were searching for their own sound, Claude Rodap mixed traditional Gwo-Ka, Bel Air, Biguine with synthetic sounds, resulting in magical, adventurous outcome.

Recorded in the nineties and in 2000, the dreamy, sensuous three tracks on “Beletronic” are the deliberate result of more than a decade of his experimentation.

ORDER STERAC – OSIRION:

Out Now! Reissue of one of Amsterdam’s most respected producers Steve Rachmad aka Sterac ‘s essential 1996 Detroit style techno classic. Remastered and housed in full color artwork.

Originally released on stalwart Dutch Techno label, 100% Pure (then entitled Primus / Osirion), this one has been getting plays by a fresh new wave of deep digging DJs over the past years. This timely re-issue was needed.

The A side Osirion, is built on a classic drum loop layered with Rachmad style arppegiators and euphoric strings. The B side features a more abstract 909 Detroit infused loop, full of heavy synths and percussion. Both tracks have stood the test of time and sound fresh as ever.
