Elektronauts logging in yesterday to get their sample fix from Nate
Well, well, well. look what the cat dragged in! Sorry this is arriving a day late, my only excuse is confusion, worse still I’m not even giving you an extra day to complete your tracks!
This week our sample is Discoteka Telephone (AGCP Edit) which is from the record ‘PS Edits Vol 1’. My TT has to go to the doctor to have a repair so I’m linking to a random YouTube video for you to sample from - if anyone has any trouble getting the audio please DM me and I’ll send you a file!
Back in soviet times when the official local music market was controlled by the biggest record monopoly in history “Melodiya”, many local musicians who wanted to express themselves in actual form, released tapes themselves and spread it through a big underground market network called “Magnitizdat” (short of Magnetic Tape Release). It began in the 60s with soviet rock movement and illegal copies of foreign music which got through border with tourists, seamen and diplomats. In the late 80s you could find there many different shades of music from underground protest rock, post punk, avant-garde to a lot of electronic pop, local kind of italo disco and dj’s mixtapes with a personal rap on top of it. Plus Seven Records begins a sublable series of remastered edits which narrate about dance part of this story.
