For all who liked our last Italo-set: you can get it as usual as a stream from the following link:

The Robot Scientists – The Spaced Out Disco Session – March 2010

Please let us know if you would like us to do another Italo-set for the next Spaced Out Disco Session in April. We really appreciate your feedback.

Otherwise we’ll compile a “normal” Spaced Out-set.

Best wishes

Giorgia Lauda – Mandolino mandolino

tittytwistedgiorgia

One more italian long-forgotten hot babe for your pleasure and……..I can’t tell you how much i totally ADORE this tune!

This comes from the vaults of the essential italian Discopiù label, “Mandolino mandolino” (uncensored cover up here as you see) is a 1978 total masterpiece, and one of the very few disco tracks entirely sung in italian too. Not Giorgia’s voice on this release, a typical use of the era was to just have a perfect match with a sexy cover, a dance tune and some backsingers actually able to sing a tune in a studio.

As far as I know Giorgia did just a handful of singles, including the highly sought-after italodisco single “Taci”, German folks should also check her 1984 hit: “Jeder muss sein leben”.

This one has the perfect balance between a melancholic feel and a mad pulsing beats coupled with infectious voice, the whole result really drives me insane….if anyone is interested in having the transcript of the lyrics just let me know…..copies are still around over the net for cheap, I warmly suggest you get them before the hunt begins!

Under The Ice

truti568168136836814

Lovely Italo Disco track with loud beats. The main performer on this record is credited as a toy for geeks from the eighties known as Topo the robot. This vintage piece of so-so hardware lends its limited text-to-speech synthesis skills for a few vocals on the track.

Two Heads Are Better Than One

cube

Cube – Two Heads Are Better Than One

Italy, 1982. In the picture, two sassy signorinas from the Amnesia club of Milan, filled with fashionistas, models, punks and punkettes, rich girls, and boys in Armani, Armani and Armani. The Amnesia was one of the flashiest venues to try out the emerging italo tracks( and not to be confused with the place of the same name in Milan now).
