"Disco Kosmische Vol. 1"

People in The Sky began three years ago in the back of a short lived record shop in East London. We'd come across a young band from St Albans who didn’t have any songs, or a name or anything, but were obviously the future. So we grabbed a Section 25 album off the wall, named them Friendly Fires and set up a label to put out their records.
We lost the band to The Man after a couple of EPs, and lost the shop to the whims of fortune, but armed with a few beaten up disco 12’s and our ears still ringing from a farewell Test Icicles in-store, we teetered off in search of new beginnings and a life for the People In the Sky.
Twelve releases and two years later and it feels like the musical landscape is changing as the heat around disco starts to bleed into dark corners of the indie underworld, and brave new hybrids start to emerge, skirting around the fringes of post punk, white boy funk, Kraut cosmonica and disco's inbuilt hedonism.
And so with the help of some choice cuts from sister labels we work with (Tirk / Bearfunk / Output) and the odd outside source (the brilliant Italians do It Better, Norways irrepressible Smalltown Supersound, Londons' 'This is Not an Exit'), we’ve put on our DJs in the Sky lab coats, called in our old pal Abe–le–Ton, and strung together a 69 minute mix custom built for indie disco’s, cosmic jams and sofa sojourns.
It starts with the timeless Italo of Tantra's 1981 classic 'A Place Called Tantra', moves confidently through the strutting disco-rave of Mock and Toof's mix of Friendly Fires' 'Photobooth', sashays through Forty Thieves 2008 vocal classic 'Don't Turn Me On', and then drifts off into space via John Daly’s mix of Beppe Loda's 'Egotrya' / the Diaphanoids 'Weightless Motionless' and Holy Ghosts’s anthemic mix of They Came from the Stars 'Moonsong'…
See ! As it swoops back to earth with the deep disco-froideur of Chromatics 'After Dark', struts around Lindstroms’ Botswana Bedouin, and then straps on the floor burners with Optimo's mix of Colder and Metal on Metal’s take on Wax Stags epic 'Short Road', before closing out with Heartbreaks' sizzling electro-disco rework of Plugs 'Bodyheat' and finally, the Diaphanoids glorious lazer guided rejig of Snorkels 'Dust to Dust'.
