2017 / Manu / Archeo Recordings

Ban Ban Ton Ton was never supposed to be just my “voice” (if you`re interested in contributing please get in touch), and without support and encouragement from others it wouldn`t exist. So before we look forward to a new year, I`ve asked a few friends to pick their favourites from the last twelve months. 

Manu / Archeo Recordings

Archeo have had a busy year. Releasing sought after Balearic gems in the form of Blue Gas` melancholy Italian Pop and Blindboy`s Swedish Hip Hop crossover. Unearthing the near lost Italian Art of Roberto Aglieri and Paolo Modugno. Early 2018 will see the full release of that Leo Mas / Fabrice / Gemolotto remix of Enzo Avitabile (promo`d as a white to a lucky few in the Summer) and a massive 3×12 reissue of Sth. Notional`s sublime Yawn Yawn Yawn.
