Daniel Bell relaunches his classic minimal imprint 7th City with a series of reissues this May.
The news will come as a relief to Bell fans sick of playing crazy prices for the label on eBay, and with a bit of luck the next in the series might even be the rare and expensive ‘Planet Earth/Trance Missions’ from Brother From Another Planet/DBX which kicked off the label in 1992. Bell wound up 7th City in 2002, but this year the label returns to the stores, first with reissues of tracks from John Tejada (‘Timebomb’, 2002) and Claude Young as Brother From Another Planet (‘Acid Wash Conflict’, 1993) among others.
