Introducing Quiet Village

[FR] [DE] [UK]

Quiet Village is a UK-based band, who released their debut album Silent Movie in May of this year. The album reminded me of the compilation work of Andy Votel on Vertigo Mixed, one of my favorite records of the 2000s.

Their band name was taken from the 1952 Les Baxter musical composition “Quiet Village,” first released on the album Ritual of the Savage.

Silent Movie is definitely crate digging music but not “retro“, which I’ve come to see as a derogatory term. Just like Andy Votel’s Vertigo Mixed it celebrated the art of record collecting, one of my favorite pastimes between 1996 and 2002.

Silent Movie is bound to end up high on year-end-lists of people who known their music.

    Impressed you like this Mr Sonic. Methinks it is too deep for coffee table status. The 12s go for insane prices but the sequencing on the album is sublime.

    Matt Edwards also records as RadioSlave and runs Rekids. He did an inspired Herbie Hancock edit called Nobu this year.

    Joel Martin has also licensed the De Wulf sound library archives, so the future looks bright…..

    More importantly there is a Quiet Village disco mix at Fact
    A British hipster periodical which might be a bit dim for your tastes but the music writing is spot on. What is your disco top twenty? Love to read it!
