Taxie "Rock Don't Stop" Melodies 001 with Floating Points & Love On The Run
My buddy Floating Points and I have finally launched our reissue record label "Melodies", and the first release on the label is a west coast Disco rarity by Taxie "Rock Don't Stop". It's a party platter that we've been playing at our club nights for some time now, and it's scarcity has lead original copies of this little 7" to fetch crazy amounts of $ on auction. So for this, we bring this official reissue with the original band members involvement to you, without the hefty price tag. Straight from the master tapes, and pressed onto a loud 12" for maximum Disco impact, Rock Don't Stop is now available at finer record stores for your very own collection. It's also worth mentioning that this issue comes with a vintage alternate mix from the original engineer with a louder bass drum to bust those speaker stacks at your next party. BLAP BLAP BLAP shots fired!
We've also inaugurated the label's first release with an awesome little 'zine called Melozine. There are fantastic vintage photos, interviews, record charts from friends and family, record store lists and ephemera for your viewing pleasure. Don't miss it, and for those fretting over the quick sell out, another press is coming soon...
Thanks for your support!
