Michal Turtle feat. HOVE
Middle of the Road Less Travelled

80s electro tinkerer Michal Turtle has seen a renewed interest in his music in recent years, with Music From Memory reissuing a number of records from his back catalogue. Now Light Of Other Days sees him team up with guitarist Hove for this EP of gentle deep house and Balearic beat. There’s a nice dinky quality to the synths on Middle of the Road Less Travelled that recalls Dazion and Dip In The Pool.

Return To Jeka

Dutch imprint Music From Memory gather eight tracks from the archives of Michal Turtle. 'Return To Jeka' is the label's third release in collaboration with the English artist. Previously, they raided his tapes for the 'Are You Psychic?' EP and 'Phantoms Of Dreamland' 2LP. Like those records, this rewinds back to the 80s and features eight previously unheard cuts of obscure Britsh synth music, produced between 1983 and 1985. We can hear his background in jazz and classical, and even the funk and dub influences that run through this electro-ambient-tropical doozy.

Phantoms of Dreamland

Music From Memory just can’t stop themselves from digging through obscure old archives can they? Their latest discovery is one Michael Turtle, a teacher, composer, producer and jingle writer. Phantoms Of Dreamland mixes tracks from his rare 1983 solo LP Music From The Living Room with a number of tracks never before released! Unusual home-grown electronic music, well worth your time. Double LP.

Are You Psychic? / Astral Decoy

Michael Turtle produced these tracks in the early 1980’s: now they are highlighted as part of Music From Memory’s series of 12”s. Are You Psychic? was recorded in the family living room aged 22, but both it and Astral Decoy sound fully-developed despite Turtle’s limited means. Full album reissue to follow...
