Schema Records is proud to present the new album by The Dining Rooms, featuring Jessica Lauren, Sacri Cuori and Bruno Dorella (Ronin).
After a four years hiatus since the previous album Lonesome Traveller, The Dining Rooms are back with a work that reconnects to the early sounds of the Milanese duo: a soundtrack of cosmic funk, abstract jazz and cinematic avant-garde.
Love Talk is the third single taken from Alex Puddu's recent album Soultiger.
A Super 8mm film by Thomas Eikrem & Alexandre Archimbaud, the video contains also footage of Alex Puddu and Joe Bataan performing live in Copenhagen.
Soultiger follows the two volumes of The Golden Age of Danish Pornography and Registrazioni al Buio and definitively establishes Alex’s trademark sound: a spicy blend of groovy funk and cinematic atmospheres, deeply rooted in the sound of the 70s. The album features the King of Latin Soul, Joe Bataan, which sings on The Mover, 50.000 Women Can't Be Wrong and here on Love Talk. Enjoy!

One year after the release of his fifth studio album Movement, Gerardo Frisina comes back with a new EP: 5 tracks that outline his current sound. Call it latin jazz dance if you will, but these tracks display subtleties, indications of different moods and areas of research. The title track for instance, Olympia, delves into Gerardo’s passion for Brazilian music: a slow joint (only 115bpm!) where the berimbau plays an important role. Or Talking Sticks, a track that in some way follows the afro-funk mood already explored in his latest album. Gerardo eschews ordinary choices and opted for inserting often overlooked or out of fashion instruments in his tracks: the Hammond organ, the baritone sax, for instance.
East Breeze reminds one of the latest Gerardo’s EP (do you remember Orient, co-produced with DJ Skizo?) and brings an exotic flavour to Gerardo’s trademark sound. There’s also a cover, an homage to one of Gerardo’s favourite tracks, Dizzy Gillespie’s Tin Tin Deo: a jazz classic influenced by afro-cuban music of which Gerardo desired for long time to give his interpretation. The closing track is The Obsession – a track led by a repetitive bass, a pure example of Gerardo’s sound: a track that may sound house at first, but that the experienced listener will recognise as a far more complex blend of styles and influences. The consistency of the sound of this EP is guaranteed by the presence of Gerardo’s musicians, the ones that participated on his latest full length.
Schema is proud to release a new project curated by Gerardo Frisina.
This time Gerardo took a seat into the control room and produced a record that tells a story, a one about an encounter between like minded artists: LivianaFerri is an Italian percussionist hailing from Bari, who studied and had been heavily influenced by afro-cuban music. Gerardo met her in Puglia at one of her gigs. This encounter fostered a series of gigs where Liviana played percussions on Gerardo’s DJ set… It took really little time for Liviana to come to Gerardo with some recordings of her and the Cubafro ensemble. Starting from her vocals and percussions Gerardo arranged and produced Ye Maya E, a 3 tracks EP that perfectly transmits the powerful vibration of afro-cuban music. A solid horn section, enthralling percussion sounds and a clubby attitude: these are sounds that will shake your body, the club sounds Gerardo got us used to.
