Patrick Ryder (Piccadilly Records)

For anyone who buys records in the North of England, Piccadilly Records is some sort of institution. The shop was born in 1978 and has sold many records ever since, with a selection ranging from pop and indie through disco, funk and balearic through electro, techno, ambient and many more.


Skatebård, real name Bård Aasen Lødemel, is a producer and DJ from Norway who rose to prominence in the early noughties. His catalogue “oscillates between emotional techno, neo-italo, electro from an alternative future and a Scando-cosmic reinterpretation of pure Detroitian house”. In 2006 he founded Digitalo Enterprises, an imprint that he has exclusively been using to put his own material out.

Ric Piccolo

Ric Piccolo is a DJ and producer from Argentina, mostly known for unearthing rare and unreleased disco and funk tracks from the 70s and early 80s. He first came to prominence in 2012 with a series of mixes called “PampasDiscoShock” that put him on the diggers’ map, allowing him to make appearances at Albion‘s Camp Cosmic festival and to play as a DJ all over the world.

LYO#068 / Selvagem

Selvagem is a Brazilian duo of DJs and producers based in São Paulo, comprising Millos Kaiser and Trepanado, who has been throwing internationally renowned parties in São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro.

Front De Cadeaux

Front De Cadeaux is a producer and DJ duo comprised of Hugo Sanchez aka Hugosan from Rome, and DJ Athome from Brussels. They released their first single Le PédéBPM in 2014 on Roccodisco, an Italian label founded by Hugosan himself and Rodion. The track was remixed by Fabrizio Mammarella and the duo quickly gained support from established DJs such as Erol Alkan or Ivan Smagghe.

LYO#057 / Zambon

Maciej Zambon is a Polish DJ and producer based in Berlin, widely known as the head honcho of The Very Polish Cut-Outs and Transatlantyk. In 2009, the Polish electronic scene is almost non-existant at an international level. Inspired by a Baris K mix heard on Beats In Space, Zambon starts editing obscure 70s and 80s tracks from the Polish underground. One year later, the New-York based imprint Bumrocks releases his first edits EP entitled The Very Polish Cutouts, which sells quickly and is now highly sought after. It’s under the same name that Zambon co-founds that year with Kacper Kapsa an edits label in order to promote the new Polish house scene, consisting of young talents such as Old Spice, the duo Ptaki (LYO#043), Jazxing and Selvy (LYO#055). With the support of Todd Terje, Eddie C, Bill Brewster, Andrew Weatherall and a few other established DJs, The Very Polish Cut-Outs quickly becomes a reference and establishes the Polish scene on an international scale. In 2014, Zambon launches Transatlantyk, a label this time dedicated to original productions of his protégés. As of now, totting up six EPs, one LP by Ptaki and the acclaimed Polo House compilation released in 2015, Transatlantyk is constantly rising and creating a stir. Zambon is also a DJ with remarkable eclectism, and has just given us an exclusive raw mix of old-school house with no frills, enjoy ! Télécharger / Download LYO#057 / Zambon (Transatlantyk)
