OUT NOW:

MRR005: Imatran Voima 'Welfare State of Mind' (2x12" and CD LP)

This is what Warp had to say about the LP:

"This is an album from the great and often overlooked Mighty Robot records from artist Imatran Voima. The album is basically a fierce and powerful collection of vicious tracks that loosely fall under the post Drexciya electro bracket, but with enough of Imatran's own psychotic energy and gallows humour and technical skill and vision to develop itself out of a
homage mentality. Heavy duty stuff but melodic and detailed enough to be a real headphone pleasure as well as a dancefloor smasher."

MRR006: Gladio 'Hadrian's Wall EP'

MRR007: Junior Rafael 'Darkroom Traxx'

MRR008: English Electric 'Auto Beam EP'

"English Electric is of a small group of electronic artists that are not just reclaiming 70's electro disco and the synth OST, but using modern equipment to create something new from past influences. This is not nu disco in the Lindstrom vein, but a mirrorball space excursion with serious influences from electronix and modern electro. English Electric has graphed a new age feel to the works of Vagelis, Moroder and Carpenter whilst blending it with European electro slants to make a personal and deep sound. English Electric is a solid addition to the ever-inspiring Mighty Robot Recordings' roster." [igloo magazine]

'Work Me' and 'The Morning' are dire New York house affairs but this is an exceptional record for the simple reason that 'The Violins' is really an edited version of The Black Dog's classic 'Virtual' track - and it's a superb 'edit'. It's not remixed, ... See full review

I can't quite understand why these bootleggers have to rip off the dubs and instrumentals when, in most cases, the vocal tracks are far superior. Is it a fear of the vocal, or do they think this is what their buyer will want? It's a shame as both Barbara ... See full review

This is an incredibly overrated record. For all its hype you’d expect some mind blowing Novaga drum programming, ideal for ripping up your 80’s mixes, but all you get are a selection of embarrassingly simple Bontempi pre-set style bossa nova beats which ... See full review

The track 'III Discotto' is a slow, dubbed out version of BWH 'Stop'. None of the original's vocals are on it, but there's a fat kick drum behind it and loads of spaced out noises. A great track.

I'm not a great fan of the F. Couvee and Keith Tucker mixes - the later being a fairly bland electro workout and not up to his usual Detroit bass quality - but the Electronome remix is simply stunning. A drifting, melancholy, electro-nix journey that you ... See full review

'Castro Boy' is a really warped take on Frank Zappa's classic 'Valley Girl' (on the LP 'Ship Arriving Too Late To Save A Drowning Witch').

A seriously hard edged disco/hi-nrg tune with some very X-rated lyrics.

A very dark Italo Disco release. Melancholy, sweeping synths, New Beat style vocals from Ventura, hard edged rhythm patterns and spitting sax. Perfect.

You have not lived until you've heard 'Entercourse Of The New Age'.

Classic electro form start to finish. In time honoured fashion Aux88 have dipped into the past - Cybotron/Kraftwerk - tweaked the bass and given us a top quality slice of electro/techno - Detroit style.

This is begging for a repress!

'Invasion' is an incredibly lush slice of European Techno. I'm not so keen on the Brinkmann tracks - the first one is like a bad heavy metal rave monster with thrash guitars.

Well worth buying for the Heiko Laux tracks though.
