Sergey Lipsky is one of our favorite selectors from Russia. He’s DJing at the best venues in Moscow, Saint Petersburg, Yekaterinburg. He’s a one half of Simple Symmetry (other half is his brother Sasha) maybe the most promising Russian electronic act today. Sergey is also a guitarist in Saint Petersburg Disco Spin Club. Both acts released a superb 12” records this year: the first one on Glenview and the second on Is It Balearic? And here’s a Sergey’ top-5 selection for us!
It’s a great psychedelic soul record, the only one album produced by Eddie Hazel as a solo artist. Eddie is known more as Parliament, Funkadelic, P-Funk All Stars lead guitarist, famous for his great solo on «Maggot brain».
It’s a very eclectic album produced by Manuel Gottsching with Rosi Muller on vocals. Gottsching played most of the instruments here and showed his great skills as a guitarist.
A jazz-opera that was recorded in more than three years. It’s a fantastic true psychedelic two hours long record featuring great musicians such as Don Cherry, Karl Berger, Michael Mantler, John McLaughlin and many more.
Double album from Greek psychedelic prog rock band formed by Vangelis and Demis Roussos. The record was inspirited by The Apocalypse of John.
