Three years after releasing Sizike–U Zemlji Čuda With Lost DATA Tracks LP (featuring 6 songs from their original 1985 album U Zemlji Cuda, and 6 previously unreleased recordings of group DATA from 1981-1984 period), we discovered another amazing archive: Night Club 1985-86 LP, recorded for international market by the oddball queens Sizike and their leaders Zoran Vracevic and Zoran Jevtic!
Sizike–Night Club 1985-1986 is a collection of 9 previously unpublished italo-disco, Hi-NRG, synthpop tracks. As in our previous Sizike release, fans of the 80’s sound & gear will relish the authentic 808 beats, vocoded rap and vocals, Pro-One signatures and hand-tweaked analogue FX. Moreover, they will be meet with a good old song structuring, nearly 2-minute-long intros and plenty of instrumental parts between verses, making many tracks sound like remixes rather than Sizike’s typical tunes. All vocals are sung in a witty, cheeky girls style, with lyrics in English emphasising fun and having good time.

Eastern Europe has always been a mystery regarding electronic music. In former Yugoslavia, for instance, it wasn’t so unusual for someone to be a rock musician or to play in some new wave band. Even more, Yugoslavian punk and new wave scene were one of the strongest in the Eastern Europe. But, in terms of pure electronic music, there weren’t so many acts that were able to draw wider attention. One of them was Miodrag Misa Mihajlovic (aka Max Vincent), Belgrade based synthesist, obsessed with synth instruments from his early ages.
In 1984, with only 17, with his friend Intro, Max composed "Ostavi Sve" (in English: "Leave everything"), probably the greatest ex yu minimal wave song of all times. It was tribute to Fairlight synthesizers, in that time non affordable for young Max. Inability to buy expensive instruments has created something that later will become his artistic sign: unique sampling technique. It was fascinating how he used relatively humble equipment, to obtain so powerful and colorful sounds, especially in songs: "Colors and Stars" (1986) and "Never say never" (1987). The secret was in approach and vast knowledge of making sound effects (before today’s FXs). He spent nights and nights manically programming and recording all his patches, sounds and effects. The question was how to create a natural sound effect combining two or more artificial elements. Probably, he was the only one who knew what kind of recordings and real sounds he used in getting such enchanting samples. In addition, he studied human voice and methods about obtaining the weirdest effects with voices and positioning them in the most bizarre way in the sound image. The goal was to create magnificent, godlike creations, with very opposite structures regarding music content and atmosphere. In the center is always a conflict between good and evil, love and hate, dark and light, mostly in artist himself. The madness that comes with breakup of Yugoslavia and wars during 90’s, only intensified Max’s internal struggle along with the drug problems and personal pain (death of the father). Nevertheless, Max has continued to create during 90’s: he was dreaming about new studio and gears, worked for many artists in order to survive, never ignoring his own music. Nothing significantly changed during that time regarding Max’s music, except it became more dark and depressive, but yet striking and hypnotically seductive (song: "Sta je to sto nam se desava"). To some extent brighter messages came out at the beginning of 2000’s (with the end of wars in Yugoslavia) and in pre-war songs that came upwhile he was working in Italy and Sweden (song: "Noc pored reke Nil") in late 80’s, but these were lone shiny moments. Max died in 2004 at age of 37, when he was coming back home with one friend. He had a heart attack and fell off on the street. He was preparing a lifework material which later will become this album.
This is a lifework compilation of 10 previously unreleased tracks from 1984-2002 made as Max's prophetic and very convincing dream of the future that has designed us. Seductive and magnificent synths, hypnotic vibes, esoteric, mysterious and Balearic tunes, all of that in a dream that you will never wish to end.

Discom proudly presents Du Du A- Du Du Archive 1984-1989 LP, a collection of previously unpublished and rare tracks of Belgrade's cult band Du Du A. Discover the music of the group whose leaders Dejan Kostic and Zoran Zagorcic primed for their never-released second album and find out why they earned a cult status among DJs and collectors worldwide!
Du Du A was formed in the early '80s, in NYC, by Dejan Kostic during his sound production studies. The first line-up in Belgrade included saxophone player Vuk Vujacic as a co-author. In 1982 they released a 12" Maxi Single: Ja Tarzan, Ti Dzejn "Jungle Rap"/ Afrikanac Iz Beograda for RTB, the first ever rap music record in the former Yugoslavia. The next year, they released an LP album called Primitivni Ples (eng: "Primitive Dance") with Zoran Zagorcic as co-author, vocalist, synthesizer player and percussionist featuring some of the most creative musicians of the time: Sasa Habic (the author of Bebi Dol- Mustafa), Goran Vejvoda (known as guitarist of Kozmetika and Rex Ilusivii's collaborator), Bebi Dol, Dragan Mihajlovic (one of the founders of Katarina II) and Nebojsa Antonijevic (the founder of Partibrejkers). This album brought an unusual mixture of styles such as funk, reggae, rap, and dance, all flavored with excellent musicianship and humor. The band was also active in 1984, performing various excellent concerts and releasing one SP Romance/Irie for Jugoton, as an introduction to the new album. However, that year Dejan Kostic went to Kairo to perform in clubs along with Bebi Dol. After returning to Belgrade, they recorded just one song Pustinjska Tajna (A Secret Of The Desert) with Zoran Zagorcic as an author, vocalist and keyboard player. Dejan and Zoran agreed to compose and record songs separately, and to bring them together for the new album. After they completed the tracks, the country's major labels RTB and Jugoton, both declined to release them. They left the band and Dejan Kostic formed Du Du Ah with new crew of musicians, who played some of the songs planned to release on that album (later they have released album "Ritual" with completely different songs). Zoran Zagorcic, along with members of Electricni Orgazam, formed the band "Fetish" which also played some of the songs intended for the album. The compilation Du Du Archive 1984-1989 LP contains 5 previously unreleased songs composed by Dejan Kostic, and 3 previously unreleased songs composed by Zoran Zagorcic, with 2 songs that were published in Zoran Zagorcic's private CD-R edition.

Yugoslavian Space Program
LP | 2016 | EU | Original (Discom)
21,99 €*
Release:2016 / EU – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
Yugoslavian Space Program is the first ever electronic space music themed record from former Yugoslavia. It spans the period between 1981 and 2015 and is a result of long-term research by Discom record label as a part of their ultimate effort to present undiscovered electronic music from this part of Europe. The compilation is made in collaboration with yugo artists, whose work is already highly appreciated by record collectors and DJs worldwide.

The album opens with two tracks from the Slovenian synth pioneer Miha Kralj: "Robot"– a very obscure, a la Rockets experimental electronica, and "Juh-Hu"– his recently rediscovered space gem. Next two are the previously unreleased, but surprisingly good tracks of the Serbian band Oskarova Fobija: "Izmedju Dve Kapi Znoja" (Between Two Drops of Sweat), a floating 80's synth space song, and "Mayan Spacecraft", a dancy instrumental featuring Akai's ubiquitous Shakuhachi flute patch.

Equally interesting, the B-side showcases influences of the Berlin school of electronic music. First, by the legendary group Beograd’s "Eenterstallar", which is a Klaus Schulze-like psychedelic contemplation, and their second song reminiscent of 70's krautrock masters like Tangerine Dream, "Mozak Primopredajnik" (Brain Sender Receiver). However, the highlight of this compilation comes from Digitron, a Serbo- Croatian group formed by Zoran Jevtic (of Sizike, Data, and Master Scratch Band) and Andre Koy. Like their heroes the Kraftwerk, these guys excel in forging their unique synth sound. Their song “Digital Minds” is a perfect dystopian vision of a future society, while the equally electrifying track “Kosmos”, akin to many Kraftwerk songs, draws its inspiration on the Soviet technology and culture.

The distinctive characteristic of featured recordings is the fact that all sounds and patches are synthesized and manually programmed, without extensive use of commercial samples or drum loops. In addition, the entire concept of this meticulously devised compilation, from its music selection to sound design and artwork, covers a wealth of messages and symbols of the time in some detail. On the record cover, along with sketches of Yugoslavian scientists and astronautic pioneers, whose ideas were way ahead of their time, you will also find communist-era sculptures, monuments and buildings depicted as flying crafts or celestial objects.

The goal to present Yugoslavian space electronic music in much broader context – as a result of perception and aspirations of generations of those who grew up and lived in Yugoslavia – is more than perfectly captured in this release. The fact that the country itself does not exist anymore and that this kind of music is thus impossible to create again makes this record even more significant today.
