FIRE PARTY/LIFE CIRCLE(LIFE CYCLE) - Concerto Al C.S.A. Udine -(Not On Label-Italy-Undated)

Another tape at the famous Social Squatted centre of Udine, I have posted a few tapes recorded live in this squat! This one has a few mistakes, the band Life Circle is, in reality, called Life Cycle and on the folded cover sleeve, it says that they are from England, while they are from Wales, on the second track the singer clearly states that they are from Wales making me think that also on the flyer of such gig they were mistakenly called English.  

Fire Party were part of Dischord Records, an interesting page about them is here

I wrote already about Life Cycle when I posted their amazing album The Weight Of Tradition.

The live recording is okay-ish and the cover sleeve report very little info and no song titles, but a leaflet against the oppression of the native Americans. (in Italian, only).Enjoy it.

v.a.- ACIL Urgent Solidarity Music - (Radio Chiguiro-France-Bandcamp-2023)


ACIL means "EMERGENCY" in Turkish language.

Facing the human disaster linked to the recent earthquake in Turkey and Syria, a wave of solidarity was born spontaneously within Radio Chiguiro Records.
Everybody was hit by this disaster. Since the label's first charitable activities, the team has been convinced that art and music can play this role: to go beyond their primary function by helping people in need.

In just 4 days, 54 incredible artists from 28 countries have joined this solidarity adventure to form this great compilation of electronic music from Africa, Latin America, the Middle East, Europe and elsewhere. Whether techno, amapiano, batida, downtempo, afro-house, abstract hip-hop, ambient, singeli, drum'n'bass, latin or experimental, we hope that the magic of music will work to help victims.

Radio Chiguiro would like to thank all the artists who participated in the compilation, without forgetting those who support the project, even from afar.

At first, ACIL is available exclusively on Bandcamp for the price of 10€, and 100% of the funds raised will be donated to the French NGO Alliance Urgences.

The mission of the Alliance Urgence is to organize mobilization, and in particular fundraising, in the event of the occurrence of a humanitarian emergency. These funds are then allocated to the NGO members of the association (Action contre La Faim, Care France, Handicap International, Médecins du Monde, Plan International France and Solidarités International) with a view to organizing humanitarian aid in the field.
Following the earthquake that struck Turkey and Syria, the Alliance Urgences launched an appeal for solidarity.

In addition to the compilation, you can also support the NGO via this link:


released February 13, 2023

Kindly mastered by the amazing sound engineer Bruno Porret.

Artwork by David Crocq.

Produced by David Crocq and François Renoncourt under Radio Chiguiro Records.

Big thoughts to all Turks and Syrians <3     click me

STARFISH POOL - Interference `96 - (Nova Zembia-Belgium-1996)

  The electronic project of Koen Lybaert - that evolved out of Starfish Enterprises - that was active between 1993 and 2003. Starfish Pool was working in the experimental area of minimal, rhythmic, ambient and noise in all its aspects. Since the very start it is the manipulation of loops - the basic idea of the way tracks were created as Starfish Pool. This concept that has nothing to do with the sound but more with the way that tracks where practically made. In 10 years' time Starfish Pool had more than 25 releases. 

 Nova Zembla was a sub label of KK Records in Belgium. Initially launched in 1993, releasing material licensed from the pioneering Australian trance label Psy-Harmonics.with artist's such as Zen Paradox, Lumukanda, Third Eye, and Shaolin Wooden Men,
As the label began to establish itself in the European tech-trance seen. new artist's were added to their line up, and the music became more diversified, and releases started to feature material that ranged from hard trance like Delta Plan and Bulbawee to sci-fi ambient like Starfish Pool and hard chill trance such as Self-Transforming Machine Elves. and Goa trance by Elysium, Rounding things off with artists like Worm, Black Lung, Xingu Hill, and Sympathy Nervous who were more techno oriented, and their material was more experimental or ambient in nature, rather than trance.
Label shut down in 2000. (all info from Discogs)  click me
