WE ARE 5

NANG129

Rewind to 2009….We had just started Nang Records; we needed a motto and a call-to-arms mission statement. The best we could come up with was, "We are doing it for the love, that's for sure". Although we may have made that up on the spot, looking back now we think we were bang on. Being an independent record label is the sweetest of labours. We gave up trying to break even years ago. It is hard to believe we started 5 years ago (and a bit), it just seems like yesterday. Lots of ups, a few downs, a few "ones-that-got-away", plenty of laughter, some great new buddies and of course, lots of great tunes.

Big problems, big problems. How do you encompass 5 years of Nang and over 600 tracks into one single compilation? - So many favorites, so many touchstones to points in our history. In the end the formula was somewhere along these lines: Take a few tracks which have that distinctive Nang vibe and flavour, take a few tracks which the fans liked (and bought) and then take a few pivotal tracks in our timeline.

JMRS feat. ANDY BELL & ARVEENE

ONLY A FEELING

NANG133

Hot on the heels from the announcement that 90s Indie Rock gods Ride are to reform here at Nang towers we are really pleased to be putting out a great collaboration from kick-ass dance duo JMRS and Andy Bell (the songwriter and guitarist from not one but four huge bands; Ride, Hurricane #1, Oasis & Beady Eye). Yes that is an Indie Rock pedigree in the world of Indie rock as pure as it comes. JMRS are the duo Jonny Moy (the JM) and Rob Spectrum (the RS) divide their time between Dublin and Brighton and with 20 years of experience each as DJs and producers, they come armed and dangerous.

PROPER HEAT

BELIEVE / ON & ON

NANG127

The EP opens with Proper Heat's 'Believe': a cavernous chord's melody introduces the track's dancefloor–oriented House groove before Karolis's lyrics kick in, merged with a deep rhythmical bass-line and smooth ethereal synth-lines. Ilya Santana's version of the original track is a proper Cosmico Disco cut. The producer takes the original chord melody and re-elaborates it, fusing it with spacey uplifting synths and and a jumpy arp/bass-line, dropping towards the tracks length the sampled and delayed vocals.

BEPPE LODA PRESENTS EGOTRYA

FOUR ELEMENTS

NANG130

Nang proudly presents the re-issue of 'Four Elements LP' coming from Nu-Disco hero and one of the founding godfathers of Italo disco, Beppe Loda and his project Egotrya.

Beppe Loda and Egotrya have lately found a place on Nang's shelf, being our well received 126th release. The single 'Wind', with remixes from Andromeda Orchestra and JMRS, lead us to decide to re-issue one of their most outstanding records to date: on the 24th of November we're dropping Egotrya's 'Four Elements'.

BEACH DISCO SESSIONS VOLUME 5

(MIXED BY SITUATION)

NANG125

Nang just turned 5 and this summer drops its fifth "Beach Disco Session" compilation, mixed this time by former label's artists Situation. The UK-based artists have carefully chosen 15 records from the present and the past, moving towards different genres and comprising music from the likes of Andrew Weatherall, Chris Coco, Greg Wilson, Justin Martin, Prins Thomas, Max Hessa and Hiem amongst others. 'Beach Disco Session' fuses and heterogeneous range of styles, going from the dreamy Nu Disco remix by Andrew Weatherall of Baldelli and DJ Rocca's 'Complotto Geometrico, to the Bassy House mix by Justin Martin of 'Mushroom', passing through Ill Advised and his acidy uplifting Disco and the relentless groove of Prins Thomas' remix of Todd Terje. The result is an outstanding collection of music included in one captivating summery mix.

SPACE

MAGIC FLY

NANG008

We are extremely proud to re-issue one of the most pioneering Space Disco albums of all time. Nang brings back to life 'Magic Fly' by the original French Electronic masked artists, Space. Daft Punk eat your hearts out.

The "Space" project was put together by producer JP Illescuo in 1977. It all started with the "Magic Fly" melody which was originally a slow-tempo piano piece by Didier "Ecama" Marouani. JP added Paris session musician stalwarts Roland Romanelli, and Jannick Top into the mix and energized a upbeat and futuristic sound based around synthesizers and a pounding 4/4 beat. The 'Magic Fly' single was originally released in 1977 and became a hit all over Europe and the US. The album of the same name followed the same year featuring 7 tracks of futuristic soundscapes for the downtrodden 70s.

The Parisian band embarked on series of European tours and appearances. On stage they used to wear Astronaut's helmets: their stage presence and their unique look and sound have inspired a wide number of artists, from minor to major acts, including the world wide famous duo Daft Punk.
