BUSCEMI / Luna Misteriosa / TWI 1238 CD 
Luna Misteriosa

Crepuscule presents Luna Misteriosa, the 8th artist album by acclaimed Belgian DJ, producer and remixer Buscemi, whose eclectic dance music stylings embrace a mix of lounge, jazz, house, bossa, latino grooves and drum n' bass.

Since 2001 Buscemi (real name Dirk Swartenbroekx) has released seven solo long players as well as mix albums for Blue Note and Ministry of Sound, film and television soundtracks, and three collaborations with the Michel Bisceglia Ensemble. Remix clients have included Melody Gardot, Isabelle Antena, Calexico, Hooverphonic and Nicola Conte. Seaside, his 2003 collaboration with Isabelle Antena from signature album Camino Real, remains a perennial favourite around the globe.

"I am very proud and happy to be releasing Luna Misteriosa on Les Disques du Crepuscule," says Dirk. "A smooth collection of tracks I made with a selection of international guests, including Italian singer Luigi Catalano, Silvia Ramirez from Brasil, Yael Meyer from Chile, Leo Wood from Bristol in the UK, and Peter Lesage and Lady Cath from Belgium. Hope you enjoy this audio trip. Going worldwide."

Luna Misteriosa will be released in May.

BLAINE L. REININGER / The Blue Sleep (TWI 1237 CD) 
Night Air

The Blue Sleep is a new studio album by Blaine L. Reininger, the Colorado-born composer and founder member of avant-garde music group Tuxedomoon.

Written and recorded by Blaine in 2017, the album was mixed in his adopted hometown of Athens by noted electronic music producer Coti K. Like most of his previous solo projects, The Blue Sleep combines vocal songs with atmospheric instrumental tracks, three of which (Lost Ballroom, Jacob's Ladder and Odi et Amo) were written for Caligula, a theatre production.

"These days the music plays me," explains Blaine. "The unifying principle behind the songs on Blue Sleep is the method of composition. I apply fine old aleatory techniques - John Cage, William Burroughs, Tristan Tzara - and filter these through my instinctive knowledge of melody and harmony. Lyrics are generated algorithmically (I work with programs which assemble phrases according to mathematical rules) and then edited by me, with phrases suggested by the random output. That's pretty much my modus operandi in the 21st century."

The Blue Sleep will be released in March.

VIRNA LINDT / Shiver / TWI 195 
Shiver

Les Disques du Crepuscule are pleased to present an extended double disc reissue of Shiver, the acclaimed debut album by seminal Swedish pop artist Virna Lindt, originally released by The Compact Organisation in 1983.

Written and produced by Virna Lindt and Tot Taylor, Shiver offers 12 slices of chic orchestrated pop informed by 'foreign film' soundtracks, movie composers John Barry and Ennio Morricone, Modernist musique concrete and Cold War spy thrillers. The album spawned three singles: Attention Stockholm, Intelligence and I Experienced Love. For the most part Lindt provides the voiceover for her own narratives, occasionally striking reflective poses amid orchestral swells and multi-layered atmospherics; a clear influence on later acts such as Pulp, St Etienne, The Cardigans and Air.

This new edition of Shiver showcases acoustically-enhanced mixes prepared by Taylor and Lindt in 1997, augmented with non-album singles Model Agent and Young & Hip, and immaculate instrumental versions of key album tracks such as Underwater Boy and The Dossier on Virna Lindt. The extended tracklist also finds room for a leftfield cover of Windmills of Your Mind, originally written by Michel Legrand for The Thomas Crown Affair and recorded for the Crepuscule compilation album Moving Soundtracks.

Cover image by E.A. Janes. The 2xCD edition is housed in a 6 panel digipack with a 12 page booklet. The double vinyl set comes in a stylish gatefold sleeve and includes a free digital copy.
