Futurism Volume 2

A 4 track nu-disco ep (26m 53s) — released August 20th 2012 on Ism Records

Bonar Bradberry back once again for London's Ism Records with 'Stop & Look' featuring vocal duties from Odyssey's Mr Steven Collazo with a heavy production heading straight towards the sound of the Paradise Garage and very D-Train inspired. No wonder the likes of Greg Wilson and Ashley Beedle have jumped on this 80's boogie gem for the past few months.

'This Way Up' comes complete with a big room pressure remix from the Dead Rose Music Company. Epic sounding, uplifting in all the right ways and building throughout with intense piano stabs, a deadly persistent bass line that shows no mercy, backed by a tight percussion sounds and surrounded by well placed stereo effects and haunting vocals that is bound to appeal to both house heads and the disco fraternity alike.

Paul Barkworth returns with another 80's led groover on the remix of 'Stop & Look', slinky as a Prince production, with delicious synth stabs, warped pads and a quirky off-kilter B-Line and backed by his rough and tough trademark beats.

Damir Rogina, the man responsible for turning out Ilija Rudmans productions for close on a decade makes his vinyl debut for Ism Records. Hisapproach to production is to blend Funk, Italo, Hi Nrg Disco all into one sound yet not use a single modern digital instrument or VA or plugin … so for the past year Damir, a self confessed cable junkie, has set up a studio that is 100% representative of the early days of disco, analog synths, trusty drum machines and hence the new record is born!

Firstly 'Funk Divine' is almost a modern day sounding Princesque masterpiece, with its deadly synths, over a sexy rhythm and with a body moving b-line, climaxing into a full on up-tempo exotic disco romp! Rocking the remix is the crazy Italians Ajello with their remake of 'Sand Worm'. Delightfully camp with dancing synth arpeggios and relentless Rhodes chords this is clearly inspired by Harry Thuman.

Birmingham's Free School step up with their first release on Ism with the epic reworking of 'Set It Free', slightly faster and decidedly more warped and twisted than the original, Having just rocked this years Garden Festival in Croatia, the lads live reputation is growing having recently played at the Futurism party in London. The remix completely in early 2012 has been featured in a diverse range of DJ sets including Gilles Peterson and Ross Allen.
