Futuro Antico
Futuro Antico

The Italian duo of Walter Maioli and Riccardo Sinigaglia aka Futuro Antico released this cosmic-exotic excursion on cassette back in 1980. Naturally it sunk without trace. But Black Sweat have kindly fished its spiralling synth ‘n’ flute mantras out of the jaws of obscurity for this vinyl-only release. The LP comes i...view item »

I.P. Son Group
I.P. Son Group

Some fairly wild Italian experimental business that has fingers in the free-jazz, afro-beat and North African pies. I.P. Son Group were an international crew led by Marco Rossi and they only ever made this one album, first released in 1975. This is rare, hot stuff, and it has fortunately been reissued to vinyl b...view item »

Moggi
Tenisone

As if there weren’t enough records released under his own name, Piero Umiliani also dabbled in other monikers. As Moggi, his work got especially synth-spooky: 1979’s Tenisone anticipates much of what the 80’s would bring. Needless to say, the original library edition is uber-rare, so t...view item »

M. Zalla
Mondo Inquieto

1970’s Italy really was a busy time for weird and wonderful sounds, with obscure film soundtracks and library music LPs being filled with amazing music at a rate of knots.

Piero Umiliani
Genti e Paesi Del Mondo

1970’s Italy really was a busy time for weird and wonderful sounds: Piero Umiliani is part of the proof, with his hefty catalogue of soundtracks, more and more of which are receiving reissues.

Ariel Kalma
Interfrequence

Ariel Kalma produced the sounds we hear on Interfrequence in 1980, using a brace of synthesisers.

Heat

I put this chap on in Brighton recently and about 15 people turned up but that didn't stop Piotr Kurek from delivering a truly astounding set of glittering, synth-led electronica. 'Heat' doesn't really fall into the same category - lacking the fluttering & tweeting of Kurek's more recent work, instead built in musique concr&egra...view item »
