November 7, 2017 Italians Do It Better release Autumn 12″ bundle
Italians Do It Better low-key dropped a limited “autumn 12″ bundle” featuring music from Andrew Douglas Rothbard, Invisible Conga People and Twisted Wires pressed on “transparent blue mist, emerald, & fog” 180g vinyl. The package includes a re-mastered version of The Invisible Conga People’s hissing, slow-rolling 2008 classic “Cable Dazed“, and while unfamiliar with the Rothbard record, it is described by the label as sounding like ““if Philip K Dick & Philip Glass collaborated with Kevin Shields to create a symphony of controlled chaos for Carnegie Hall in 2217.” Listen below + purchase the bundle at the IDIB shop.
November 7, 2017 Kelly Lee Owens covers Aaliyah, remixes said cover
London electronic-pop/techno hero Kelly Lee Owens, whose debut LP is one our favorites of 2017, shares a new cover of an Aaliyah classic, and a remix of that cover, both to be released on limited 12″ vinyl via Smalltown Supersound. KLO reflects on covering “More Than A Women” and how doing so only strengthened her love and appreciation for Aaliyah and Timbaland:
“My love and respect for Aaliyah as an artist / vocalist and Timbaland as a producer increased ten fold as I picked the track apart and understood how intricate and layered everything was. I chose to combine my favorite elements of the original track with my love of analogue production – a stripped down version, and an ode to Aaliyah, one of the greatest. The remix of my cover was something I wanted to write and produce that gave the original track new life, and also gave people a sense of power – it’s unapologetic.”
