2LP Gatefold. Life and Death are pleased to announce the sophomore edition of the Displaced Soundtracks out 25st January 2019. Tracklist A1 Vatican Shadow - He Held The Victims Responsible (Luxor) A2 Midland - First Tube B1 DJ Nobu - Spring B2 Ninos Du Brasil - Nocturno Culto C1 Scuba - Love Theme C2 Uchi - Rachel’s Song D1 Isolee - Adriana D2 Cosmo - Fottimi Continuing on the thematic thread of soundtracking an imaginary short movie, label founder DJ Tennis aka Manfredi Romano, asks some of the greatest contemporary club producers to take on the task of interpreting this idea in their own unique style. Romano explains that “the score is a translation of our imagination, memories and emotions into music, with no protocols.” Opening the soundtrack, Vatican Shadow swaps his thunderous techno for a more cosmic and gentle approach, setting the tone for an equally serene soundscape from London based DJ and producer Midland. Japanese Future Terror head honcho, DJ Nobu, layers dense cerebral textures exuding the punk spirit of Life and Death. A similar rule defying energy can be heard by Ninos De Brazil who fuse carnival percussions with straight up old school techno. Both Scuba and Uchi bring the futuristic synths of a space age tomorrow we’ve all been waiting for. German producer Isolee interprets the task with his minimal productions and Italian producer Cosmo closes the compilation with Psychedelic Soundscapes turning into a distorted gabber missile. As the decade edges closer to it’s decade anniversary, Romano proves yet again that Life and Death is a label which evolves through each reincarnation of itself, never failing to impress.
