Phonique - Green Supreme LPGreen Supreme is the fourth studio album from house music veteran Phonique: a collection of 11 remarkable songs from one of the scene’s most revered producers. To describe Phonique as prolific would be something of an understatement. To date, he has amassed a discography of more than 500 original tracks and remixes - as well as three previous studio albums - for acclaimed labels such as Dessous, Poker Flat, Crosstown Rebels, Systematic, Souvenir and of course his own label Ladies and Gentlemen, a collection which includes some runaway successes. Despite working on Green Supreme, Phonique’s fierce production rate has continued unabated in 2016, with highlights including ‘T Groove’ on Katermukke and his stunning remix of Frank & Friedrich ‘Coming Home’ which landed on Universal earlier this year.

Tomorrows People - Open SoulMelodies International proudly expand their catalogue of rare soul gems with another carefully crafted reissue, complete with full 16 page Melozine. This time it’s the spellbinding Tomorrow’s People album: Open Soul. Deep in South Chicago, a band of four brothers raised on doo-wop and flea-market instruments made a record during the mid 70s that did not only mark a seminal point in their youthful careers, but would go on to become a true collector’s favourite. ‘Open Soul’ is quite simply one of the best examples of raw, stripped down soul in its purest form, and for this reason has become a highly sought after rarity. The album has been carefully reproduced and will be officially available for the first time in 40 Years, this time accompanied by an interview with one of the original brothers, various Tomorrow’s People memorabilia and a number of other contributions from Melodies’ friends around the world.

Described by The New York Times as “a surreal cinematic tone poem that pays slavering homage to Italian giallo horror films of the 1970s", Amer finds its influences in the films of Dario Argento, Luis Buñuel, or Mario Bava and makes for a truly visceral cinematic experience, thanks notably to a perfectly curated soundtrack compiling some of the best songs from cult Italian movies of the past.
