Early Sound Recordings

Ed Longo & The Applied Arts Ensemble “The other Fantasy” (Early Sound)

2019-04-19T02:17:57+00:00April 19th, 2019|

We welcome Ed Longo and his studio project The Applied Arts Ensemble debut on Early Sounds with The Other Fantasy, the result of many recording sessions that took place in different places around Europe. Conceived with a strong jazz-funk, fusion and boogie sound it has been conceptualized around the idea that the schizophrenia of the internet-age, the visions of Otherness (the undiscovered lands, the primitive happiness, the impossible love) permeate the collective consciousness and the idealized Other loses any correspondence with the physical world.

Pellegrino “Zodyaco” (Early Sounds)

2018-11-23T04:51:21+00:00November 23rd, 2018|

Pellegrino presents his new project “Zodyaco”.

Inspired by the ancient mythology of the stars and their deep influence on the sea life, the record is the result of nocturnal jams in the wake of the Italian jazz-funk tradition, exotic fusion and Mediterranean mysticism.

A tribute to the stars and their reflections on the sea.

Klaus Krueger “Advanced Dance” (Early Sounds)

2020-03-07T06:21:19+00:00June 28th, 2018|

It would be fair to say that this release is fairly significant. It showcases material recorded – but never released – by former Tangerine Dream and Iggy Pop drummer Klaus Kruger throughout the 1980s. Variously inspired by kosmiche, Berlin School ambient, the cyclical movements of avant-garde American minimalism, the polyrhythms of Africa and contemporaneous electronic music movements – think EBM and European new age electronica, for starters – Advanced Dance contains some startling and hugely enjoyable material. The album’s genius lies primarily in Kruger’s ability to not only balance acoustic and electronic instrumentation, but also experimental instincts and melodious intent. Remarkably, some of the material even sounds like modern modular techno. In other words, it’s one album of previously unreleased material that you really need in your life.

Qvark “Qvark” (Early Sound Recordings)

2018-04-12T22:57:51+00:00April 12th, 2018|

Milan. Italy. 1983. In the midst of the 80s economic boom. which gave an injection of optimism after the heavily political 70s. a group of young local musicians meet every night in a basement to rehearse and record a peculiar breed of Italian disco music. Originated from the ashes of various other projects. and rooted in the broader jazz-funk tradition. the group creates music which is equally inspired by contemporary fusion as well as by the first wave of the italo-disco sound. Over approximately 3 years the band has recorded and played live. until the dismantling of the project towards the mid 80 s. Fast forward 35 years and the genuinely mediterranean flavor of Qvark s demo recordings are still enjoyable. both for the actual resurgence of the Italian disco tradition and for the groovy quirkiness of a project which has been too long forgotten. After an intense work of audio restoration of such tapes. heavily affected by time. Early Sounds is pleased to present a compilation which is an important find to define the sound of late 70 s and early 80 s Italian club sound.
