    Ole Lukkøye – Zapara

    Ole Lukkøye – Zapara
    Label: Fulldozer Records – FDCD43
    Format: CD, Album, Limited Edition, Reissue, Digipak
    Country: Russia
    Released: 03 Mar 2021
    Style: Darkwave, Psychedelic Rock, Tribal, Fusion

    Fulldozer Records presents an extended reissue of the significant Russian album of the 90s – Ole Lukkoye «Zapara», originally released on vinyl in 1993 by the label Antrop. Ole Lukkoye does not need a special introduction: the ethno-electronic band from St. Petersburg, which has existed for more than three decades, is well known to all connoisseurs of world music and psychedelia, not only in Russia, but also far beyond. Since its inception in 1989, Ole Lukkoye has released 8 full-length albums, which were released in Russia, Germany and the United States and received good press coverage. Starting from 1994 the band toured extensively throughout Europe, and five years later met the legendary German krautrock band Faust. The result of this collaboration was the recording and release of the album «Crystal Crow-Bar» in 2000 on the Klangbad label, owned by one of the Faust founders Hans Joachim Irmler, as well as the release of two other Ole Lukkoye albums on this label. The permanent leader and songwriter of the band Boris Bardash, among other things, is known for his participation in the recording of Theodor Bastard’s albums «Pustota» and «Beloe: Hunting For Fierce Beasts». A very special place in the creative heritage of Ole Lukkoye is occupied by the first album «Zapara», recorded in 1993 at the Antrop studio in St. Petersburg with the participation of engineer Yassin Tropillo. The album had a great influence on the sound of famous modern Russian ethno-electronic groups and on the entire Russian world music scene.

    As those who have not yet had the opportunity to hear this album and who have heard it for the first time today rightly point out, it is hard to believe that such music was recorded in Russia in 1993. The unique and original sound of the album «Zapara» has absorbed both the influences of the best examples of the 80s darkwave scene and the tunes of various ethnos of the world, as well as the psychedelia of meditative rock and the avant-garde techniques of jazz fusion. Roughly seven musicians took part in its recording, and the range of instruments extends from keyboards, percussion and acoustic and electric guitars to bassoons, cello and banjo. The album’s magical spirit-lifting atmosphere is enframed by hypnotic recitatives in Russian performed by Boris Bardash and Andrei Lavrinenko. The canonical CD version of the album is supplemented with two previously unreleased bonus tracks: the meditative instrumental «Enfilade», recorded in 1993 at the studio of the Leningrad House of Radio, and the first version of the song «Toomze», which was recorded in 1995 at DDT studio in St. Petersburg, but was never included in this form in the eponymous album released a year later.

    African Imperial Wizard – Behanzin

    African Imperial Wizard – Behanzin
    Label: Tesco Organisation ‎– TESCO 150
    Format: CD, Album, Compilation
    Country: Germany
    Released: 15 Dec 2021
    Style: Experimental, Industrial, Tribal, IDM

    These eleven tracks, all recorded in Luanda, Angola, orchestrate the military vengeance march of an entire bloodied continent that stands proudly and which, day after day, keeps arming itself in the shadows.

    Decolonization wars, civil wars, cold war, ethnic wars, barbaric wars, let no one dare believe the African people’s struggle is over. The oppression of the Western civilization has devastated our infrastructures, severely weakened our governmental agencies, violated our religious institutions, and battered our economic fabric.

    For our cultures to never again be humiliated, for your oppression to never again be a degrading threat, for our recurring famines and your ceasefires to never again be fertile grounds for the shameless exploitation of our natural resources, African Imperial Wizard fights back and will fight back over and over again.

    To finance the arming of our revenge-hungry factions, African Imperial Wizard presents Behanzin, our brand-new CD which gathers the 11 tracks of our first two opuses, the Cetshwayo kaMpande EP and the Isandhlwana LP. This record is intended to be the echo of a violent revolt that will spell the end of the tyrannical exploitation of our proud nation!

    To all the rebels, commandos, dissidents, guerrillas, and squadrons plotting their fierce revenge, African Imperial Wizard offers you the soundtrack to your bloodthirsty retaliation! We will never bow down again to your ruthless battalions! Never again will we turn a blind eye to your inhuman crimes. From now on, we will mercilessly retaliate blow for blow. uSuthu!

    Label: Rage In Eden – Rage 110
    Format: CD, Album
    Country: Poland
    Released: Feb 2016
    Style: Experimental, Ambient, Tribal

    Giuseppe Verticchio (aka Nimh, Hall of Mirrors, Maribor, Twist of Fate…) is known for his high-quality post industrial dronescapes and ethno-ritual sound productions through various technologies, field recordings, noises and treated acoustic instruments.
    Since 2002 his materials have been notably published by Rage in Eden, Silentes, Malignant, Eibon Records, Naked Lunch Records …
    Developped around loops, samples and minimal acoustic sequences, this new Nimh album offers thrilling sonic sound rituals with a distinctive aestheticism which embraces the universe of pantheistic, pagan and animist beliefs.
    The music originally explores the mystical influences, the meaningful sacred energies, dreamlike hypnotic effects obtained by obsessional sound patterns and cyclical rhythms.
    “Circles of the Vain Prayers” is a great companion of later works from Nimh, including “The Missing Tapes” (Silentes, 2007), “Krungthep Archives” (Silentes, 2011). Your perfect ambient, entrancing and blackened music pilgrimage to revisit sacred places of foreign small scale societies.
