Anthony Naples, Kiki Kudo, Various – All Welcome
Fresh and direct from our cousins over at Good Morning Tapes, All Welcome is a welcome collection of heads spanning the four corners of the GMT sphere. From Tapes’ serene and sincere opening raga “Silence Please” to Innsyter’s liminal dub courtesy of “Morning Blend” — All Welcome contains no shortage of the interior music that GMT are well known for championing. Conversely, All Welcome contains its share of club-ready body music courtesy of an extended mix of Anthony Naples’ dubbed up “Goodness” — a peak track from his 2018 masterpiece Take Me With You — and a crystalline missive from Naples’ Incienso label mate Kiki Kudo that is guaranteed to set minds ablaze. Rounding out the spiritual and the physical components of All Welcome are two brilliant ethereal pieces from Only Things (aka rvng’s own Eddie Ruscha) and Eszaid — the former embodying an optimistic, halcyon-tinted yin to the latter’s moodier, opaque yang.
In total, Good Morning Tapes continue their inspired run of forward thinking and warm hearted releases with a collective declaration of peace. Like all great compilations of contemporaries, it not only tells a great story or builds worlds for us to explore, but it also brings together disparate musicians from all over to communicate a new epoch. This compilation comes at our highest possible recommendation, limited copies left worldwide, please get involved.
From the label ‘The premiere Good Morning compilation selects six entries from the extended kin, three extracted from previous cassette releases and three from the vault. Engaging the listener in a varied but constant visioning experience, GMT's fourth vinyl offering is a peace pilgrimage poised to spill some of its magical life source into receptive ears.’
