As well as their sporadic gatherings and hi-fidelity sound system, Love Machine have now set up their own label. ï¿½We wanted something that would echo the original sound of space disco, providing a tome in astral explorationï¿½.Back in 1982 Cosmic Gold was originally intended as the theme song for a science fiction movie of the same name. Due to legal reasons the project came to a complete and
permanent halt after only two weeks of shooting. The movie was scrapped and the track forgotten.
In late 2010 a remastered version of the track resurfaced on the web, stirring up public interest. Love Machine found the track on youtube, and although the clip showed a piece of vinyl being played, no vinyl had ever been pressed. They contacted the mysterious 0x51d and struck gold, literally. This is the first pressing of the never before released track.
Love Machine played the original track to Ashley Beedle, who loved it so much he offered to remix it with Darren Morris, as Africanz on Marz,. The result is a 11 minute, no-nonsense, galactic monster, which they have suggested you file it under ï¿½Dark Sci-fi Space Discoï¿½.
To ensure a high quality reproduction, the project was mastered by Matt Colton at Alchemy Mastering and pressed by Optimal on 180g vinyl. The sleeve features an original illustration and silk screened in gold on a black sleeve. There will be a limited run of 300 copies.
