Music From Memory Vinyl, CD & tapes from this label at Norman Records

Joan Bibiloni
El Sur

El Sur is a premium example of the jazz-ambient-fusion-synth-experimentalist-groove sound produced by Joan Bibiloni during the 1980’s. He set up his own label, Blau, to showcase both his own work and the work of others across the Balearic islands, and this was one of the jewels in the Blau crown. Reissue LP with a...view item »

Workdub
Workdub EP

Some late 1980’s cuts from Workdub, a project that seemed to disappear as quickly and as enigmatically as it surfaced. These tracks are beautifully spacey leftfield synth-work, really something to behold. Originally released by the equally mysterious Dubit label, this EP is now being reissued by Music From Memory, to the i...view item »

The System
The System EP

Dedicated re-issue specialists Music from Memory take us back to France in 1983 for this lost electro-synth-pop gem from The System. 3 tracks from the LP Logic and one track that is completely unreleased. These songs are for some lazy afternoons, subdued beats and orchestral pads back layered vocals washed in reverb. A ...view item »

Roberto Musci
Tower of Silence

Milanese composer and multi-instrumentalist Roberto Musci must’ve become very restless by his late teens because in 1974, still aged only 18, he left his native Italy for the more exotic destinations of the African and Asian continents. On his travels (he would roam for the next decade or so), he curated sounds (but of course) using his ta...view item »

Becker / Stegmann / Zeumer
Ich Traume So Leise Von Dir

Ich Traume So Leise Von Dir is the insular and off-kilter works of experimentalists Becker / Stegmann / Zeumer. Clotted with funky bass prods in tandem with sporadic spoken word, the one-off Germany-incepted project amounts to a heavy dose of Kraftwerk-inspired krautrock, kicked off ...view item »

Denis Mpunga & Paul K
Criola

Music From Memory present an EP made up of a collection of tracks made by Denis Mpunga and Paul K that were initially spread out over several very rare compilations released in the 1980s. All put together with a few unreleased tracks from the master reels these tracks push together traditional African music with...view item »

Caliban
Digital Reggae

Music From Memory continue to position themselves as heirs to the Soul Jazz throne with another excellent reissue. Caliban’s only single was cut in 1984 as a response to lack of black cultural artefacts included in the first payload from the U.S. space station. That said, the combination o...view item »

Denis Mpunga & Paul K
Remixed

Mixing beats with Belian electronics, some of Denis Mpunga and Paul K’s work has been taken up by a load of producers and they’ve put together this remix compilation EP. With an added bonus unreleased track from the duo. Includes remixes from Prins Emanuel, Androo, ...view item »

Michal Turtle
Return To Jeka

The delightfully named Michal Turtle is one of Music from Memory’s prized gems, a British synth artist making often unfathomable sounds from remote dream regions. His time as a writer of jingles seems worth noting; not only can you hear the playful, anthemic side of his writing, but you can also hear him eschewing it, offering instead the ...view item »

Vito Ricci
I Was Crossing a Bridge

There will always be hidden gems of electronic music. These people tend to be revered for one of two reasons - either by their music being in line with current electronic trends such as the current 70s TV show cheese, or a unique aspect of their style which doesn’t obviously place them in time. Vito Ricci seems to be part of the latter, wi...view item »

Gaussian Curve
Clouds

Amsterdam’s Music From Memory label continue their journey around Europe (Italy, the UK and the Netherlands are all represented here) but buck their own trend by releasing some brand new music rather than an archival treat. Clouds is the debut album of Gaussian Curve, a set of one-take improvised recordings in a g...view item »

Dip In The Pool
On Retinae

On Retinae is a bright and pleasing slice of Japanese pop music recorded in the heart of the 1980’s. The track, the work of Dip In The Pool, glides forwards on a stately melody line for plucked synth lines, delicate vocals and unexpected (but thoroughly welcome) clarinet completing the picture. The entrancing tune...view item »

Terekke
Improvisational Loops

Quite the change. Since L.I.E.S. haven’t done a Lobster Theremin and created their own sub-label for snoozing yet, house savant Terekke has had to take his ambient particles over to Music from Memory. Having made something nice and meditative in ‘Plant Age’ late last year, this new record feels like a natural step towards pure,...view item »

Kuniyuki Takahashi
Early Tape Works (1986-1993) Vol. 2

The excellent Music From Memory (Gaussian Curve, Richenel) drop the second part of their Kuniyiki Takahashi retrospective. These seven tracks were originally only available as highly limited runs, but Takahashi had great ambitions for his music. From his home studio in Sapporo h...view item »


Uneven Paths (Deviant Pop From Europe 1980 - 1991)

Even by the standards of Music From Memory, this is an oddball. Label founder Jamie Tiller gets together with Parisian crate-digger Raphael Top-Secret to comb the annals of 80s/early 90s European music and find the weirdest stuff they can that still has a hint of a pop sensibility about it. Unsu...view item »

Richenel
La Diferencia

A hit in his native Holland throughout the 1980s, Richenel was originally an art-school squatter in Amsterdam making lo-fi bedroom pop tapes before that was a proper thing. This album has been circulating in the lost-gems end of the blogosphere for some years, and now re-issuers extraordinaire Music From Memory ...view item »


Outro Tempo: Electronic and Contemporary Music From Brazil, 1978-1992

Archivist wonderkids Music From Memory spread the love with their first compilation, sourcing tracks from a golden era of Brazilian electronics. Lapping from the late seventies to early nineties, this release spans upheavals both political and musical, as reflected in the different approaches and innovations made to electronic music -- cons...view item »

Suso Saiz
Rainworks

Having not released anything since 2008, Music From Memory released a compilation of Spanish ambient electronica producer and composer Suso Saiz. Known for his work with Orquesta de las Nubes and Música Esporádica as well as recording with Steve Reich, he has retur...view item »

Dub Oven
Skin 'N' Bones

Music From Memory have announced the final 12" in their schedule for 2017: it's a reissue of Dub Oven's self-released, one-off, 1983 EP 'Skin N Bones’. Gary Miles and Blaise Smith met at San Francisco’s notorious 181 Club in 1982. This was music for the dance-floor, influenced by the riotous local patro...view item »

Vincent
Fast Forward

Information on this one has been kept close to the chest. The mysterious Vincent released this EP on cassette in 1987, and Music From Memory have managed to dig it out for a vinyl repress. Who is it? Well if you like your electro 80s and your Yamaha RX grooves pushed out to the max, this one’s for you. Morning Love...view item »

Gigi Masin
Talk To The Sea

Nobody ever seems to have heard of Gigi Masin, so much respect due to Music From Memory for recovering so much material from his archive of unreleased sound. Talk To The Sea is full of curious minimal pieces, that loop vocal fragments and quiet electronics to form a quite beguiling whole. Deserves more recognition, no d...view item »
