XSound library funk, grooves, and breaks -- from Italy, France, England, and beyond -- on labels like KPM, DeWolfe, and Bruton!


JuJu/Broc (France), Late 60s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
A really rare slice of work from the funky genius Janko Nilovic – not the sound library grooves which have gained him fame over the decades – but instead a batch of rare cuts from his own short-lived record label, which he formed in 1968 with soul singer Davy Jones! Nilovic and Jones ... LP, Vinyl record album
Buried Treasure (Germany), Late 60s/1970s/Early 80s. New Copy
Nearth 20 years of work from some of the more obscure sound library labels on the European scene – served up here in a blend of modes that moves between heavy funk, jazzier grooves, and some more atmospheric keyboard-heavy tracks – all of which we're not sure we've ever heard before! ... LP, Vinyl record album
Cometa (Italy), Mid 70s. New Copy
Not much of a cover, but that's usually the way it is with the Cometa Sound Library – who provided all the great grooves on this set! Cometa was one of the more obscure sound library labels on the 70s scene – but they also maybe lasted the longest, perhaps because they were small ... LP, Vinyl record album
Broc (France), 2016. New Copy
A really great setting for the talents of French funky sound library genius Janko Nilovic – a set of new recordings that feature Janko on keyboards, alongside some very stripped-down beats and rhythms! Given that Nilovic's music has been sampled often over the years, the approach is no ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ennio Morricone/Bruno Nicolai

Dimensioni Sonore (10CD set)
RCA/Musica Per Immagini (Italy), Early 70s. New Copy 10CD
CD...$139.99 199.99
Fantastic sounds from Ennio Morricone and Bruno Nicolai – a set of rare albums of more serious music done for RCA – very much in the darker spirit of their recordings with the Gruppo D'Improvvisazione Nuova! The music here is more avant compositional than some of Morricone's lighter ... CD

Jay Richford & Gary Stevan (Brugnolini/Torossi)

Feelings (with bonus CD)
Carosello/Schema (Italy), 1974. New Copy LP & CD (reissue)
A legendary sound library set from the 70s Italian scene – exactly the kind of record that got so many folks digging for sound library funk so many years ago! The record's a masterpiece of funky rhythms, jazzy instrumentation, and warmer touches – served up with plenty of Fender Rhodes ... LP, Vinyl record album
Liuto/Schema (Italy), 1971. New Copy
Stunning sound library material from Braen's Machine – one of the coolest, grooviest, and most obscure acts that were part of this underground Italian scene in the 70s! Quarta Pagina follows into even more trippier territory than the group's famous Underground album – a wild blend of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Group (Gruppo D'Improvvisazione Nuova Consonanza)

Feed-Back (with bonus CD)
RCA/Schema (Italy), Early 70s. New Copy
One of the best records ever from the Gruppo D'Improvvisazione Nuova Consonanza – an obscure side project of Ennio Morricone and other Italian composers – working here in a freaky, psychedelic setting! The album mixes sonic experiments with fuzzy guitars, freaky keyboards, and some ... LP, Vinyl record album

Braen's Machine

Underground (with bonus CD)
Liuto/Schema (Italy), 1971. New Copy
Heavy fuzz with a good deal of funk as well – a very unique set from the Italian sound library scene – and one that comes across with the feel of some lost psych record from the underground! The album was produced by Piero Piccioni – and features soundtrack/sound library maestros ... LP, Vinyl record album

Piero Umiliani

Psichedelica
Omicron/Schema (Italy), 1971. New Copy Gatefold
Not the sort of psychedelic music you'd expect from an American rock band of the late 60s – and instead, a stunning set of funky genius from Italian soundtrack maestro Piero Umiliani! The record's actually a precursor to Umiliani's famous global score for Sweden Heaven & Hell (Svezia ... CD
Sdban (Belgium), 1970s. New Copy 2CD
Really wonderful sounds from an overlooked sound library genius – and an artist who's also a great one to turn to if you want to hear the groovier side of the spectrum too! Rene Costy recorded these tracks on the 70s scene in Belgium – which is why he's probably not as well-exposed as ... CD

Andre Brasseur

Lost Gems From The 70s
Sdban (Belgium), 1970s. New Copy 2 CDs
Fantastic sounds from Belgian Hammond hero Andre Brasseur – a musician who clearly cut a heck of a lot of records back in the 70s, as evidenced by the huge range of record covers and 45 sleeves inside! Yet Brasseur's also one of those guys who never fully got his due – a keyboard ... CD

Piero Umiliani

To-Day's Sound
Schema (Italy), 1971. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)
A gem of a record from the great Piero Umiliani – and maybe one of his funkiest, grooviest projects ever! The set is more sound library funk than soundtrack – and features some very strong keyboard work in the lead on most track – including Fender Rhodes, moog, Hammond, and even ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jacky Giordano

Organ – IM 24
Le Tres Jazz Club (France), Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)
Fantastic funky organ from Jacky Giordano – a European keyboardist who seems to sparkle in just about every style he tries on! The set's a sound library record, barely issued at the time – but Jacky treats the proceedings like he's trying to audition for some top-level jazz organ ... LP, Vinyl record album

Johnny Harris

Movements
Blank, 1970. New Copy (reissue)
A seminal album from Johnny Harris – the David Axelrod of the UK! Like David, Johnny worked heavily at the end of the 60s and early 70s – blending funk and jazz influences with older styles of soundtrack and instrumental work, coming up with a sublime style that was never duplicated, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Gerardo Iacoucci

Le Avventura
Deneb/Finders Keepers (UK), 1970. New Copy (reissue)
The masterpiece by one of the most obscure artists in the Italian sound library scene of the early 70s – music that easily moves from funky sounds to cosmic styles to jazzy moments and beyond – sometimes within the space of a single tune! Gerardo Iacoucci's music is a huge change from ... LP, Vinyl record album
BTF (Italy), 1973. New Copy
Fuzzy funk from the Italian scene of the early 70s – a really landmark record that ties together all the best elements happening in the soundtrack, sound library, and psych scene at the time! The group features two guitars and lots of organ and keyboards from the leader – really ... LP, Vinyl record album
Four Flies (Italy), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
Weird and wonderful sounds from a very electric man – the mighty Piero Umiliani, an Italian composer who first rose to fame for a set of groundbreaking film scores in the 60s – then moved into even more experimental sound library work in the following decade! This set has Piero working ... LP, Vinyl record album

Moggi (Piero Umiliani)

News News News News News
Musica Per Immagini (Italy), 1979. New Copy (reissue)
A really wonderful record from sound library wizard Piero Umiliani, and one that really takes its title seriously – as most of the tracks here have a very news-worthy sort of vibe! There's a fair bit of keyboards and electronics in the set – and Umiliani moves between numbers that seem ... LP, Vinyl record album

Maria Teresa Luciani

Situazioni Del Terzo Mondo
Cinedelic (Italy), 1972. New Copy (reissue)
A really weird little record, and one that maybe gives away part of its approach with its cover – an abstracted version of sounds that are supposed to be more natural and organic, but which are very electronic and pulled far from any sort of instrumental referent! The music is almost a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sandro Brugnolini

Utopia
SerMi/Sonor (Italy), 1972. New Copy (reissue)
A stunning sound library session from the great Sandro Brugnolini – maybe one of the best records he ever cut, and a set that definitely shows his background in jazz! There's a very strong bossa current taking place in the rhythms – the kind of Italianized take on the music that first ... LP, Vinyl record album

Marcello Giombini & Enzo Barbarino

Transvitaexpress (smoke colored vinyl pressing)
Soave (Italy), 1974. New Copy (reissue)
A really wild bit of sound library work from this Italian duo – a set that almost feels more like an experimental radio art piece than the usual sorts of records from the scene – given the advanced use of electronics, and the mixture of spoken parts with very offbeat sounds! Most of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Alessandro Alessandroni

Spontaneous (180 gram pressing)
Four Flies (Italy), 1974. New Copy (reissue)
Stunning rare work from Alessandro Alessandroni – a soundtrack talent who first flourished in the 60s, but really hit his stride in the sound library scene of the 70s! Alessandroni has a great way here of mixing the warm and the sweet, the funky and the melodic – tunes that are short ... LP, Vinyl record album

Puccio Roelens

Research Of Sound
Sounds From The Screen (Italy), 1976. New Copy
We're not sure how much research went into the album – but we can definitely say that's got the sound just right – this sublime variation on Italian studio funk, served up here with all the right elements! The record's got an electric slink that would be right at home on the CTI/Kudo ... LP, Vinyl record album

Janko Nilovic & The Soul Surfers

Maze Of Sounds
Broc (France), 2020. New Copy
A great pairing of funky talents old and new – 70s sound library legend Janko Nilovic on keyboards, and the totally hip Soul Surfers combo on rhythms – providing these great backdrops for some surprisingly wonderful work on organ, piano, and Rhodes from Janko! We'll confess, we didn't ... LP, Vinyl record album
Musica Per Immagini/Sonor (Italy), Late 80s/Early 90s. New Copy
Late work from Italian sound library giant Sandro Brugnolini, but great work too – a set that shifts a bit in the styles of instrumentation used, but which follows lots of the same dark passages that Sandro explored in the 70s! The keyboards and electronics are more digital than analog, but ... LP, Vinyl record album
Gemelli/Loneos Editions (Italy), 1972. New Copy (reissue)
Some of the darkest work we've ever heard from Bruno Nicolai – an Italian soundtrack composer who's usually in the more groovy side of the spectrum – but who here proves that he can be as moody and offbeat as his frequent musical partner, Ennio Morricone! The tunes have some occasional ... LP, Vinyl record album

Stefano Torossi & Giovanni Tomasso

Echoing America (colored vinyl pressing)
Cometa (Italy), 1970. New Copy (reissue)
A record that definitely lives up to its title – an obscure Italian sound library session that blends instrumental touches that evoke an America at the start of the 70s with some of the hipper, deeper currents you'd expect from the team of Stefano Torossi and Giovanni Tomasso! There's plenty ... LP, Vinyl record album

Janko Nilovic

Un Homme Dans L'Univers
Broc (France), 1978. New Copy (reissue)
One of the most electric sets we've ever heard from sound library genius Janko Nilovic – a set that has some spacey moments that live up to the title, mixed with others that have more of the funk that you'd know from his classics! The spacier bits have a variety of keyboards tripping out in ... LP, Vinyl record album
Montparnasse 2000/Underdog (France), 1975. New Copy (reissue)
One of the funkiest records ever cut by studio jazz genius Janko Nilovic! This set definitely earns the "soul" in the title – as Janko blends his usual mad mix of studio sounds with some heavier 70s elements – including a fair bit of fuzzy guitar, funky beats, and some nice ... LP, Vinyl record album

Modern Sound Quartet

Floreama
Fonovideo/Holy Basil (Italy), 1977. New Copy (reissue)
A keyboard-heavy set from the 70s, and one that's on the funkier side of the sound library spectrum – thanks to an array of grooves that move with the speed of some of the best cop or crime soundtracks of the time! The main maestro here is Oscar Rocchi – an older Italian jazz player ... LP, Vinyl record album
Four Flies (Italy), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy
Weird and wonderful sounds from a very electric man – the mighty Piero Umiliani, an Italian composer who first rose to fame for a set of groundbreaking film scores in the 60s – then moved into even more experimental sound library work in the following decade! This set has Piero working ... CD

Gokcen Kaynatan

Gokcen Kaynatan
Finders Keepers (UK), Late 60s/1970s/Early 80s. New Copy
You may not be able to say his name that easily, but you'll definitely be singing the praises of Gokcen Kaynatan after you hear this groovy little record – a totally amazing bit of moogy electronics recorded on the Turkish scene in the 60s and 70s! There's plenty of guitar in the mix, too ... LP, Vinyl record album
KPM/Vocalion (UK), 1970s. New Copy
A treasure trove of Brit sound library work – most of it from the legendary KPM 1000 Series, plus assorted bits from the Conroy label as well! The work here leans heavily towards funky jazz – those fuzzy, hard-driving tunes that always made KPM sides a key choice for action films and ... CD
GAD (Poland), Late 90s. New Copy
The cover's almost got a 4AD sort of look to it – and that might be a good way to approach the music of Jozef Skrzek here – as it hits on the more meditative side of that British label in the second half of the 80s – as Jozef creates all these spare, keyboard-heavy instrumentals ... CD

Arawak

Explosive
Golden Pavilion (Portugal), 1980. New Copy (reissue)
A sweet set of keyboard-heavy tracks – a relatively obscure Italian sound library set from the start of the 80s, and one that's got a stark sound that's very much in the spirit of its cover! The tunes are mighty lean – often keyboards with just a bit of rhythm – a setup that's ... LP, Vinyl record album
Broc (France), 2016. New Copy
A really great setting for the talents of French funky sound library genius Janko Nilovic – a set of new recordings that feature Janko on keyboards, alongside some very stripped-down beats and rhythms! Given that Nilovic's music has been sampled often over the years, the approach is no ... CD

Basil Kirchin

Everyday Madness
Trunk (UK), 1970s. New Copy
Rare work from the archives of Basil Kirchen – very appropriately titled, given the madness of the legendary UK composer! As Jonny Trunk explains in the notes, Kirchen left the music behind with little in the way of information – but that hardly detracts from the quality of the music, ... LP, Vinyl record album
Omicron/Schema (Italy), 1971. New Copy (reissue)
Not the sort of psychedelic music you'd expect from an American rock band of the late 60s – and instead, a stunning set of funky genius from Italian soundtrack maestro Piero Umiliani! The record's actually a precursor to Umiliani's famous global score for Sweden Heaven & Hell (Svezia ... LP, Vinyl record album
Leo/BTF (Italy), 1972. New Copy (reissue)
A fantastic little record, and one that really lives up to the "elettro" promise in its title – as Giuliani Sorgini uses lots of offbeat electronics, in a mode that's almost a link between the musique concrete experiments of the 60s, and some of the more electronic-based sound ... LP, Vinyl record album
Liuto/Schema (Italy), 1972. New Copy 2LP Gatefold & CD (reissue)
Percussion and special effects – a really wonderful blend, especially in the hands of Italian maestro Piero Umiliani! The album's one of Piero's more experimental and electronic outings – done for the Liuto sound library label, with lots of cool production techniques that make the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Emilio Aparicio Moog

Expansion Galactica
Mental Experience (Spain), Early 70s. New Copy
Really great sounds from an artist with "moog" in his name – and a fair bit in his music as well! Emilio Aparicio Moog recorded these tracks on the Guatemala scene in the 70s – and the titles were mostly issued as ultra-rare 45s, but are brought together here in one heck of a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Nino Nardini

Musique Pour Le Futur
WRWTFWW (Switzerland), 1970. New Copy (reissue)
Nino Nardini's given us some very groovy music over the years – like his famous Jungle Obsession album – but this set has the maestro working in a completely different mode – turning out some incredibly haunting sounds in a musique concrete approach! Nardini composed all the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Suzanne Ciani

Music For Denali
Finders Keepers (UK), 1973. New Copy
One of the most beautiful records we've ever heard from electronic pioneer Suzanne Ciani – and one of the earliest too! The tracks here were composed for a documentary in 1973 – one dealing with skiing in Alaska – and Ciani uses a sublime mix of acoustic piano and Buchla ... LP, Vinyl record album

Frank McDonald & Chris Rae

Mean & Dirty
De Wolfe (UK), 1978. New Copy (reissue)
A killer set from the legendary De Wolfe sound library of the 70s – a record that's got all the badass cop/crime vibe you'd expect from its shooting gallery target on the cover! The tracks are nice and lean – cop show funk, but without fuller orchestrations – so that you can ... LP, Vinyl record album
GAD (Poland), 1985. New Copy
A cool keyboardist from the 80s scene in Poland – working here on all the best Roland, Korg, and Arp instruments of the time – and with this lean, stripped-down groove that's almost got a Kraftwerk feel overall! The music's never too cheesy – with none of those "too ... CD
RCA/Musica Per Immagini (Italy), Early 70s. New Copy 10LP & 10CD box set
Fantastic sounds from Ennio Morricone and Bruno Nicolai – a set of rare albums of more serious music done for RCA – very much in the darker spirit of their recordings with the Gruppo D'Improvvisazione Nuova! The music here is more avant compositional than some of Morricone's lighter ... LP, Vinyl record album
WRWTFWW (Switzerland), Early 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
Two unreleased soundtracks from electronic genius Bernard Parmegiani – both surprisingly tuneful, although also equally abstract! The songs for Les Soleils De L'Ile De Paques are mostly in a cyclical mode – like more condensed versions of some of the long-spun keyboard experiments by ... LP, Vinyl record album

Egisto Macchi

ESP (180 gram pressing)
Cometa (Italy), 1973. New Copy (reissue)
One of the weirdest sound library records we've ever heard from Egiso Macchi – and that's really saying a lot, given how much weird music the man has given us over the years! The set is very heavy on sounds created by the theremin – but with styles that are often a bit different than ... LP, Vinyl record album
Montparnasse 2000/Le Tres Jazz Club (France), 1976. New Copy (reissue)
One of the funkiest records of the French scene of the 70s – a now-legendary sound library album from Jacky Giordano – and one that's filled with amazing keyboards throughout! Jacky stars with grooves that are like some of the best Lalo Schfrin crime/cop modes of the early 70s – ... LP, Vinyl record album
