A few recent compilations/reissues I've found
« on: February 08, 2018, 04:49:17 AM »
- Glistens, a compilation of Parry Music tracks, made mostly with digital synths:

This one came out just a couple/few months after my first 80s library mix, which happened in October '16, and it actually happens to share the tracks Paul Williams - 'Sunken Cathedral' AND Williams / Grossart - 'Shining Ice'. I really don't know what happened, but I can't say I feel annoyed about it, because they're the sort of rare tracks that I'm just happy to see getting wider exposure. I still wonder if the curators of this saw my own mix though, by any chance, or if it's just coincidence.

It also opens with the strange jingle "Evil At Play", which Aphex Twin himself sampled in the famed "Xtal".

- Cosmic Future Groove Vol. 1 - Spaced Out Disco & Funkified Electronic Themes, a comp from 2010

Don't recall caring for this one much myself, but others may enjoy.

- Reissue of Soul Impressions by Janko Nilovic

For some reason Janko's work doesn't interest my ears much, but he sure is popular with others, thus my inclusion of this.

- Todd Dockstader's 'Electronic' vols 1 and 2

- Barry 7's Connectors series

Heard both of these and loved a handful of individual tracks; recommended if you're interested in the Italian library scene, even if I couldn't really get into some of the tracks myself.

I know there's more out there, of course - I may add to this thread later or make some new threads for those once I remember them.

Thanks for these heads-up. Most are very well known, but I didn't know about the Parry one.
