New on Bandcamp 🙂 THE TYRRHENIANS by Major Hypnotic Key Institute
[ ] the tracks: “Sometimes” inspired by the 80s new wave Dance, experiments with emotional ups and downs between vocals, synths and rhythms, recorded live at the end of the 90s. The kick, only hinted at, completely deviates from the functional concepts on the dance floor but overall the track makes you move and it unveils. It is divided into two parts, the second more on the rhythms of the loops and effects. Track 3 is a version never released from: “the Original Tao” different sounds are added to the classic synth bass in sixteenth notes recorded in the androgininus recording mulino (Ferrara) 1998. The track that gives title to the album is the Tyrrhenians number 4, 909 that goes crazy and a live editing of synths, with the novation bass station very free, the ending is a dreamy progressive that dates back to the 1995 track. “Play Station” is a research on samples of brassed sounds and rings that suck in by adding up the frequencies medium, peculiar, early 2000s. The 6, AFRCD is from 2019, acid of 303 in the instrumental version. “Piove” number 7, also made in 2019 in the studio with 2Volt (Bebop records) between funk and elegant and angular modular units; track 8 BWU, from a DAT of the 90s and the moog used in midi on most parts of the pressing groove. “Mont Saint Michel” completes the album with classic brass that are lost in delays, echoes and live editing on the rhythmic part, an experimental ending. All the tracks are unreleased.

miki – the 7 kumaras .label : O.C.D. presents: The Secret Sun- VINYL
We’re at our fifth episode on The Secret Sun series and we’re thrilled to have another legendary producer taking care of it.
Miki “The Dolphin” is somebody who needs no introduction as he is, together with Francesco Farfa and Roby J, one of the pioneers of the Italian progressive scene that formed in the early 90’s in Tuscany and spread across Italy and beyond. Recognized worldwide for his productions on Interactive Test and his own Major Hypnotic Key Institute, Miki forged a solid vinyl discography that is still today very much in-demand in the second hand market, with collectors paying high prices to get their hands on the few copies around.
His intense dj set activity over the past 30 years has brought the attention of many also towards his experimental analogical works: initially realized in Florence with the connection with Franco Falsini and his Interactive Test, and later, up until the first half of the 2000’s, in Ferrara, in the recording rooms of the Adrogimus Recordings Mulino where the concepts of the Major Hypnotic Key Institute were further developed thanks to long studio sessions, both alone and with renowed trained musicians.
As it is now our modus operandi here at the OCD/SS HQ, we gained access to Miki’s personal DAT archives to scour for the goods; we are now bringing under the light of our sun two previously unreleased gem “Anse Takamaka”, created together with the late jazz bass player Bruno Corticelli, and “Shamballa”. To close the EP, we’re reissuing “Art Of Libido” a highly sought after track previously released on Interactive Test.

On Records Store Day I’ll drop a vinyl-only-300-copy single print containing Imprinting Day, a track that takes inspiration from Livio Marzetti the first spark of being a DJ came to me from this great DJ Livio mythical initial pioneer at ARLECCHINO DISCO the historical disco where my IMPRINTING took place, to be a DJ in life. Even nowadays this disco has that kind of vibe born between the late 70s and early 80s when LIVIO was its resident dj and on Wednesday evenings he’d fill the floor up with people and great music in the countryside across between Ferrara and Bologna, a disco which, as we all hope will reopen as soon as possible with its beautiful Funk vibes and good DJs. Livio gave an incredible boost to the development of the art of djing, his architectures between electronic afro funk, fusion, disco, as far as I’m concerned, over time remain among the most important in Italy although not as much remembered as they deserve. In my idea of dance music he is always present and in this track in a particular way. I really love this label that produced the project and these are the details:
Book it now it’s going to sell out soon!

Marvin & Guy and Dj Tennis are back with the fourth volume of their Life of Marvin imprint after the infamous repress from Roby J, Sick Hardcore (aka Gabry Fasano) and Model Citizen on the first 2 volumes, real pieces of art in the Dance music produced in the early 90s from these Italian legends, originally released on Franco Falsini’s Interactive Test record label, and after Dj Miki’s outstanding full dedicated EP in 2018.On this 4th installment we can see the return of Miki with the track “Templares” (TEMPorary Low Audible RESonance) together, for the very first time even if they are colleagues and friends since 30 years, with another heavyweight better known as Francesco Farfa with the track “Peace Treaty”, both remastered and originally released on Interactive Test.If you think this is it you’re definitely wrong, there are also 2 remixers, one for each track, responding to the names of Roman Flügel and Gerd Janson & Shan. It goes without saying that these gentlemen did a superb and highly respectful job. Quality at its best!

Following the last Ma.to’s EP we joined forces with two artists taking care of music and artwork on this 004 release. The first one delivered by the infamous Italian legend Miki ‘aka’ Major Hypnotic Key Institute.
His resume and collaboration’s list are known and long enough to establish him as a pioneer and precursor of electronic and rave music since the 80s.
On the artwork we collaborated with friend and genius Conxi at Ivvokistudio, the result speaks beautifully for itself.
4 track Ep with a repress of an old work from Miki on Interactive Test, unedits and new ,well balanced techno / trance / minimal spreading pure 90s vibes from both sides. A Must! have.

MIKI THE DOLPHIN – LIFE OF MARVIN VOL.3 contains APPLE \ CATERPILLAR \ SACRE GRAAL – VINYL
Italian legend Michele Zamboni aka DJ Miki, also known as The Dolphin, a moniker that he mainly uses for his productions, looks back on a long history as a DJ and producer. Miki has been riding and forming the Italian electronic music scene since the 80s, mixing different genres from Afro to Funky to New Wave, House and Acid to Techno, while steadily crafting a music outfit that refuses to be pigeonholed. The colorful smorgasbord of influences can also be found in his productions: Apple rides along a bouncy, psytrancey shuffle with an acid infused lead unravelling at warp-speed, accompanied by meandering steel drums. Soon, we get some flirting going on with a funky piano groove topped off with snare and cymbal rattles clattering through the track. Miki methodically, like a bricklayer, builds an impeccable energy — there’s a chunky vocal chop here, a quirky warped bird-like twittering there, maybe a bowed metal sample. To give you the short of it: Cutting-edge techno for dystopian raves.Soundcloud preview
