Richard and Sarah of Kit Records are putting on a night this Friday at Power Lunches. Richard does a biweekly show before me, called Kit Radio. In his own words, “tropical hangover tonics, forgotten ethnic jams and feel good pop wonk. Old, new, borrowed, blue”
Here is an excellent mix you can find on the Kit website from Mannequin Records. Check out kitrecords.com…
“W o w z a, Mannequin Records have pulled it out of the bag with this education in dark synth, mixed to perfection by label owner Alessandro Adriani. Beginning in the late ’70s / early ’80s with Heldon’s Blade Runner style grooves and the jittery paranoia of 400 Blows, the next hour and twenty mins is a swirling avalanche of mostly unknown (to us) cold-dance treasures.
We were introduced to Mannequin through brilliant oddballs The Coombe. If you happen to be in LA tomorrow you can catch a live set from Alessandro in the warm-up for the Mannequin Records Festival, which happens on the 14th.”
