MIKADO Forever

Cult electronic duo MIKADO have a new expanded version of their anthology ‘Forever’ released by Les Disques du Crépuscule, the Belgian label who issued their first single ‘Par Hasard’ in 1982.

HANNAH PEEL Mary Casio: Journey To Cassiopeia

Just a year after her acclaimed second album 'Awake But Always Dreaming', HANNAH PEEL follows-up with a striking seven movement instrumental opus entitled 'Mary Casio: Journey To Cassiopeia', featuring an array of analogue synthesizers and a 29-piece colliery brass band.
