SPEKTAR-front-300

 


The most “spektarcular” discovery of Croatian Jazz Funk recordings from the private archiv of bass-player and producer Davor Rocco, researched by Višeslav Laboš !!
An amazing collaboration of the high-class Beat and Funk musicians of Zagreb´s progressive music-scene from the early 1970s. The members Enco Lesić, Davor Rocco, Dragan Brčić and Neven Frangeš were also performing with Ex-Yugoslavian Jazz and Funk legends like Boško Petrović, Gabi Novak, Drago Mlinarec, Josipa Lisac and Grupa Indexi.

This album includes 6 tracks of the fabulous Spektar project, two Beat Jazz Grinder of shortlived Rocco´s pre-Spektar outfit Grupa Hej and one more track from Rocco-Supermarket.

EL Freakadell


Killer outstanding & authentic disco production by the famous DJ, producer & remixer head behind Balearic Gabba Sound System Enzo Elia and longtime experienced producer, sound-nerd & engineer Roskow Kretschmann with his studio wizzard Tom Sky. Somebody called it “disco for grown-ups” and it´s a perfect explaination, cause this could be easily dropped back in the days by Disco Loft DJ-legends like Ron Hardy.

The Black Pearl Crew is very proud to present these authentic vintage sound styled disco pearls to the disco lovers & community worldwide !

This 12inch release is limited to 300 copies and comes in a vintage and thick quality cover. As bonus-tracks we offer you all 3 instrumental versions of these tunes digitally.

Analog mastered on vintage tape.

Quality vinyl pressing and the cover is in a vintage thick 70´s style paper-sleeve.

Sok Front FINAL 600x600


A killer outstanding East German / DDR / GDR Jazz Funk album of the early 70´s, that is maybe the best in it´s genré.
This recording has slept for over 40 years in the shelf and shows the quality and high understanding & standard of jazz in East Germany, especially the East-Berlin Jazz scene.
Gruppe SOK is a secret of itself, cause lots of formerly East-Germans remember about this band because of plenty of concerts & the famous youth-radio-station DT64, but are really sad, that there was never a release in these days. But the “Ministerium für Kultur” / Ministry of Culture determined, that there is no culutural demand for such kind of music….. WHAT A MISTAKE !!!
Black Pearl is more than proud to present that forgotten pearl to the Jazz Funk community & music lovers worldwide !!!

While we were on the islands Trinidad & Tobago we shot a small video of Stephen Encinas, playing & singing his great disco tune – and it´s maybe the most outstanding disco tune from the islands – “disco illusion” live in his studio. We are very happy to present this small private video to you lovers of the caribbean records & sounds !

A dj mix with nearly only WEST German records – and one from GDR / DDR because of it´s deepness and poetic lyrics – mostly fuzzy, funky, psychedelic Schlager tracks with a small druggy edge to it…… and of course breaks !!!

These are some recently diggings and some new discoveries, and one two classics of course.

This mix is dedicated to the other, more darker and psychedelic side of independent german Schlager music, with deeper, fresher and different lyrics, as Schlager from the entertainment-hitparade-market.

Please understand that there will be NO tracklisting !!!

This DJ Mix is of course for FREE DATA CONSUMING…… hope you enjoy !!!….. Black Pearl Records….. Tom & Roskow
