DJ Food – O is for Orange – Video Mix

O Is For Orange’ is the sound of weathered tape saturation, detuned analogue synthesisers, vinyl crackle and machine hum. It’s also the look of unfocused, flickering lenses, mirror image filters and blurry grain embedded into film. Unofficial fan films sit alongside experimental animation, public information shorts and even the odd official video. Material that BoC took inspiration from blends with their own work as well as many that they inspired.

Sinoia Caves

Sinoia Caves is another name for the analog synth wizard Jeremy Schmidt, who is also a principal member of the critically-lauded, maximal-rock band called Black Mountain. The Enchanter Persuaded is his solo debut full-length. It is an ambient psych masterpiece, bringing to mind, as one writer puts it, “the warmth and majestic epic swales” of Florian Fricke’s Popul Vuh plus a “little Rick Wakeman and Kraftwerk”. The Enchanted Persuaded opens with “Dwarf Reaching the Arch Wonder”, a slowly building interstellar legato anchored by an ecclesiastic organ droning against cymbals, chimes, and ring modulator… “The Naro Way” is a splinter of psychedelic folk with half-buried melodies bending and giving way to the Emerson synth… then the steady heartbeat of the Linndrum marches [on] “Through the Valley”, a vocoder-led hymn ushering the worn and weary to “The Wicker Chair”, another poison drop of psych-folk now with an undercurrent of heavy breathing, white noise, and mellotron voices until all is peeled away to reveal the ether-synth abyss of “Sundown in the New Arcades (Milky Way Echo)”, an infinite, swirling moment within the primordial depths of Jean Michel Jarre’s sonic psyche with neither beginning nor end until the tape runs off the reel and in the open arch stands John Carpenter holding “The Evil Ball”. By now, you get the idea. In addition to his solo music and his contributions as part of Black Mountain, Schmidt is also known for his work as former member of the celebrated space rock band Pipedream and as a part of the Destroyer-related band called The Battles. The Enchanter Persuaded was originally self-released, in a very limited fashion, in 2002. This newest, more permanent edition comes with a slight remastering and vastly improved artwork… article respectfully sourced from jagjaguwar

The Golden Apples recently explored Giallo Disco and the visual work of Vercetti Technicolour here.

Alessandro Parisi records on Giallo Disco Records. His alchemical elecrtonic saga began in 2006. Born in Pordenone, travelling through Venice, Rome and now located in Treviso, Alessandro’s unique retro-futurist soundtrack re-imaginings are Italian through and through. Armed only with a TR707, Roland JX3P and an old Teac 244 Tape Recorder his music is organic, magickal and scary as hell…Here are some recent live performances from Alessandro Parisi and happily he does not look like he sounds…

and a remix
