PEPE MAINA - SCERIZZA LP:
This release is individually 300 hand-numbered limited edition. The first 100 copies are pressed on WHITE AND BLUE MARBLED vinyls.
It's dedicated to the 1979 New Age / Electronic masterpiece by the Italian contemporary multi instrumentalist PEPE MAINA.
Prime digger of obscure gems Manu•Archeo sets its sights on this stunning new age curio from the late 70s. Pepe Maina released two albums in his late 70s heyday, and it's the second of these, Scerizza, that gets a long overdue polish up. This is far from one dimensional wallpaper music - the sonic range covers choral pieces, delicate melodic meanderings, gamelan-esque refrains, Fourth World incantations and more besides. There's even some sweet synth jams to melt into, ensuring there's something for everyone to get into. Fans of Jon Hassell, Daniel Schmidt or Laraaji should sink very easily into this rich, multifaceted album.
On sale from 15th April 2019.
