Eskimos? Igloos?

I ripped a bunch of vinyl to mp3 this past weekend. Some records I've been meaning to digitize, while others I had all but forgotten about until the digging for records to rip process began. Case in point is this 2004 release on Eskimo Recordings from Jean Winner. The release is everything you'd expect from the Eskimo crew; classy grooving house with touches of electro and disco to keep things interesting. I've taken the liberty of pitching down the track -4.
Man oh man! The four minute mark is tight...

Funky Spaniards.

Sorry for the lag in posting ... I've been record shopping! Does that count as a legitimate excuse?
Here's a gem I found for two bucks - a killer price for an album that often goes for much, much more.
Enjoy some psychedelic latin jazz disco funk from Barrabas.
An extremely interesting blurb about the band can be found here.
The more I read about these guys the more albums I want! (I now own two by the way,hehe.)

Come fly with me.

I heard this on the radio of my favorite classic rock songs! Sure to brighten up anything and anyone.

To the beach.

We are finally getting some hot weather here ... and I'm loving it. Grab your beach towel and meet me on the sand!

To the moon.

I've been eagerly awaiting the first release from Crimea X ever since my friends over at plaidmusic introduced me to them in April. Described as " the coming together of two offbeat, disparate characters", Crimea X is DJ Rocca and Juka Reveberi. Fans of cosmic, kraut and italo rejoice ... the Phoros EP has landed. I've got the 12" release which contains 10PM, December and October. An amazing Florian Meindl remix of 10PM rounds out the b side. The digital release has an additional remix and dub of 10PM. Another killer release from the always smoking HellYeah Recordings camp.
