Studio One Los Angeles Mix

Studio One, Los Angeles Mix

Sounds played thirty seven years ago, the week of April the 18th to 23th 1977 at Studio One disco at 652 North LaPeer Drive in West Hollywood Los Angeles. According to Vince Aletti’s book, dj Paul Dougan listed the German record Jungle People by Soulful Dynamics as one of the hottest tracks. Also popular in clubs that week and included in the mix: the brilliant disco exotica number O Ba Ba by D.C LaRue, the seven minute version of Ritchie Family’s Lady Luck, the non-remixed original version of Kings of Clubs by The Chocolats, the David Todd remix of Faith, Hope & Charity’s You’re My Peace Of Mind, etc.

They used vinyls only in 1977 just like we do now at Overfitting Disco, of course.

Nadia Cassini – Encounters

Italy 1978. Miss Cassini arrived to Cinecittá from the USA to star in soft core sex comedies like “Quando gli Uomini Armarono la Clava e… con le Donne Fecero Din-Don/When Men Carried Clubs and Women Played Ding-Dong” (1971) and “La Insegnante Balla Con Tutta la Classe (The Teacher Dances With The Whole Class)” (1977), the latter realesed only in Italy.  This spectacular, druggy slo-mo disco track is from the album “Encounters Of A Loving Kind”  which also includes the cut “Go Out And Dance” from the Insegnante film.  During the early 80′s Nadia teamed up with the hi-nrg producer Bobby O.

Eerie beats and dramatic chants from France. Judging by the fab flyer glued to the sleeve this was spinned at the Kafka club in Geneve.

Il Guardiano Del Faro ‎– Oasis

It’s not cool to smoke, but when travelling through Sahara i would say go ahead. I would even go that far and suggest adding it up with some moroccan hashish. The ’78 tune is by the Italian producer Federico Monti Arduini and would fit very well as the score for your dessert high

Lost In The Stars

Lost-in-the-stars

Ancient astronaut fantasies with a distinct christian flavor dominate this 1980 album, released milliseconds before the end of the Space Disco period. Its not a great album, but there are interesting parts in between and seems largely unknown. Borrows heavily from Chromium it would appear, but doesn’t quite match them.

Reyhan ’78

reyhan

“Beautiful Reyhan, the mountain girl. The one everyone wants”. Lyrics go something like that in this popular Turkish wedding favorite, which is built on an Azerbadjani folk song. This particular version was made for the modern dancefloor, or maybe even wedding afterparties, and got some international attention when it came out back in the late 70′s.

The Secrets – I Wanna Dance

Cheaply done and without any distinguishing attributes or degrees of excellence, this is no music intended for people who are educated and who care about serious matters. And yet…

Jade East

les-nuits-ro

Ramsey Lewis – Jade East

It’s been four years and STILL no wide international dvd/ray realese for one of the best films of the recent years “Les Nuits Rouges du Bourreau de Jade/Red Nights” by Julien Carbon & Laurent Courtiaud, a French-Belgian-Hong Kong co-production from 2010. This is the closest thing you’ll get to a bona fide giallo since the real thing. Far more stylish and indefinitely nastier than both Cattet&Forzani’s artsyfartsy “Amer” or it’s incomprehensible sequel, or Zampaglione’s enjoyable-as-such “Tulpa”.

Les Nuits concerns two female killers in Louboutin shoes hunting for an ancient Chinese bottle containing poison that makes excruciating pain unendurable pleasure. Sensuously gliding camera movements, sudden blasts of gunfire, a moody midtempo soundtrack and vicious torture scenes. Apparently, the French dvd is the most easily available option – get it at any cost.

The music is a cool eastern flavoured discothéque cut from a jazz great.
