Winged Chariot Remixes LP
Brussels' based Umbrelladelika Records releases its first Webrelease on bandcamp:
A remix album of Shepherd’s smash hit “Winged Chariot”, which originally appeared as B-side for Baconhead’s Novahawk 7” on Umbrelladelika records (UBD004) in september 2010.
A remix pool was opened for selected Belgian and international artists, who delivered 19 fresh approaches to the track.
The final tracks featuring on this release have been selected and mastered by Shepherd, resulting in a nice collection of tunes reflecting the remix skills of renowned and lesser known musicians from around the globe.
Inside The Box!
Lowdjo & Umbrelladelika team up to provide you with a new blog on which mixtapes are hosted on a monthly basis.
The emphasis lies on 'non-signature Dj mixes', where each artist chooses a theme, different to what they are used to play.

UBD004 - Baconhead/Shepherd 7"
A. Baconhead - novahawk
B. Shepherd - winged chariot
mastered by Herrmutt Lobby
design by Stefan Corthals
"Time for a 7”!", we said to ourselves at Umbrelladelika records. And what a great idea it turned out to be!
From the outer reaches of distant dimensions we got hold of two exclusive, brand new tracks that will make your sundays groovier, your parties funkier, your romances more memorable and, most of all, your ass shaking itself off. Novahawk, by sci-fi beatwizards Baconhead (aka Ebola and Autobee, UK), is a vintage synthage, neat piece of 80s psyched-out funk and abstract beachhop.
On the flipside, UBD's very own upcoming superhero Shepherd (BE) presents a soon-to-be classic future-hiphop track, a wicked blend of delicious beatness in a sheep's fur. Moreover, all this niceness is mastered by Herrmutt Lobby, go figure that!
Limited to 500 copies, lovingly pressed on the finest vinyl we could lay our hands on and wrapped in mindbending artwork by RoachBugincan, this shit, ladies and gentlemen, is hot! Be sure to get your slice of the pie in time!

UBD003 - VIUDMOTH - the electrobubblepunk EP
Releasenight 09/09/2010 @Café Central - 21h
Umbrelladelika's third release is a blast! On gorgeous, toxic-looking orange coloured vinyl, your favourite label from Brussels brings you the sonic-comic madness of the Parisian duo Viudmoth (Alex Viudes & Thomas Surugue). These energetic, live synth and drum lads master
their electro-slapstick instrumental indie bubble-pop to perfection. An impeccable control of their instruments and unconventional and unexpected twists & hooks make their song-writing an audiophiles' wet dream. With these electro-baroque compositions that ricochet around the place like there's no tomorrow, Viudmoth are definitely on a quest to bring back humour in music, while still giving your regular indie-head cold chills at 100 miles per hour. Think abstract phonic mayhem in a candy store, or try to imagine a soundtrack for Tom & Jerry, teaming up with Mr. Bungle on a quest through Marioland.
Got it? Right!

Shepherd aka Harry Poppins - riddle of the unflocked EP
on Acroplane.org (ACP061)
Leading the flocks since 2008, Shepherd brings ewe spiritual guidance in troubled times. The mood is dark, grimy and the landscape desolate. Let Shepherd's hiphop and dubstep endeavors light your path.
This is a bass heavy new electronic project by Belgian producer Shepherd (a.k.a. Julien Itterbeek). The style is akin to the sinister breakbeat sound of Scorn or Push Button Objects but hidden beneath its murky swamp of squelchy synth lines are intriguing, alien-like emcee vocals. When listening, sometimes I imagine a b-boy battle on a space station between Martians and Mercurians, each crew doing weird twists and flips. It was released as a free MP3 download on the obscure Acroplane label, so be sure to grab it while you can. This is one evil, mind bending album and it accompanies me very often these days from start to finish.

The birth of Umbrelladelika Records
Umbrelladelika! Records (UBD) is a fresh Brussels-based electronic music label conceived by musician / producer / dj Harry Poppins, also operating under the moniker Shepherd (see infra for more info on the artist). As an independent label highly valuing an honest DIY approach, UBD is aiming at being a platform for a wide variety of electronica-influenced musical styles ranging from IDM to indietronics. Moreover, UBD wants to offer the music in the traditional and well-honored way of a physical carrier: cd’s and vinyl in all their sizes and shapes. UBD highly values beautiful and clever artwork and believes it is of great and undeniable importance for a record.
