Special Request Belief System The new album from Paul Woolford under the pirate radio-inspired alias Special Request. CD comes with a second disc containing 9 more songs. While Woolford’s Special Request alias has previously combined elements of jungle and techno, Belief System sees the sound evolve with “unhinged modular work, contact microphone recordings of icebergs cracking, microtonal elements, and the introduction of stark soundtrack pieces”.

Let's Dance Records - Mike Macharello & Duane Thamm Jr. Chicago 1983-85 Various Artists Jerome Derradji + Still Music are proud to present Let’s Dance Records - Mike Macharello & Duane Thamm Jr. Chicago 1983-85. The origin of house music, at least in a commercial sense, is generally associated with young African American producers from Chicago’s South Side, but one of the first Chicago house music labels was started by a young, white, gay DJ from the far west suburbs. The Let’s Dance story will take you back to the beginnings of Mike Macherello and Duane Thamm Jr. when Chicago’s house music was in its infancy. STILL MUSIC CD | LP

William Onyeabor 9 CD Boxset CD boxset of all 8 albums across 9 CDs by elusive and relatively unknown Nigerian synth-funk pioneer William Onyeabor remastered and officially available for the first time. His music represents the epitome of the golden era of Nigerian funk, before he gave up a life in music to become a devout Christian. Luaka Bop released the critically acclaimed compilation Who is William Onyeabor? in October of 2013, and has since seen the release of the documentary Fantastic Man, which was fabricated around the myth of the musician, attempts to unearth the man behind the music, which is also now a full blown live show touring the world, paying tribute to the music of William Onyeabor featuring a supergroup of Damon Albarn, David Byrne, Kele Okereke from Bloc Party, Alexis Taylor from Hot Chip, the Lijadu Sisters, Money Mark, Pat Mahoney and Sinkane. To this day, William Onyeabor has not spoken about his music in one single interview. Luaka Bop CD
