Clone will distribute new pressings of three EPs from Larry Heard's label in July.
The label run by Chicago house veteran Larry Heard since the mid-'80s recently entered a distribution deal with Dutch entity Clone. Following this spring's reissue of the classic Heard album Alien, two latter-day EPs from the boss man are due to be re-released along with a 1986 12-inch from The It that also features a Heard contribution.
The two Heard reissues come under the name Loosefingers and date back to the early 2000s (though Loosefingers was the original alias he chose before changing to Mr. Fingers in 1985). On a more mellow tip, Loosefingers EP1 boasts Heard's own vocals and guitar from Justin Chapman, while Loosefingers EP2 sees him exploring more acid-indebted sounds. Both will be out in July.
"Donnie" will precede those two in May, produced by Chip E under the guise The It and originally released on DJ International back in 1986. The classic track features an early appearance from Robert Owens as well as from Heard ("who just happened upon one of the sessions") and comes in five different versions, including a remix by Ron Hardy.
01. Glancing At The moon
03. Deep Inside
01. When Summer Comes

03. Transmission X
01. Donnie (Club Mix)
02. Donnie (Radio Mix)

Alleviated Records will release Donnie in late May and Loosefingers EP1 & 2 in July 2014.
