New show on the webradio!

A new slot on the webradio will soon open, dedicated to very special content: this new show will be be playing exclusive DJ sets only!

Whether they’re especially made for this programme, posted on the blog or for past radio shows now extinct, expect no less than excellence and awesome selections.
The format is not yet finalized but it should be around one hour long, and broadcasted every week, maybe on Monday or Tuesday nights.

Coming up very soon, stay tuned!

Edit: now we know, and because we have so many materials available, it will be broadcasted both on Mondays and Tuesdays. And it will start next week, July 21!

You will also be able to request the DJ sets to play, just check our catalogue on the radio page: http://radio.ddcr.biz/ and select what you want to listen to; new content will be added little by little so check back from time to time.

La Ragazzina

la ragazzina

 

Immense Nico Fidenco cult soundtrack for the Mario Imperoli 1974 movie “La Ragazzina”. The very first movie starring her beautiness Gloria Guida. These are the main songs of the soundtrack, an incredibly rare and pricey CAM LP, but there was also an (even rarer) 45, with these two non-LP tracks. Possibly these are non-disco tracks, but you can foresee  some elements later to be used in a lot of disco productions.

Why are you running fast

Gino Pavan

 

alexander

Fact: last May I was at a very tiny record fair in the area checking the 2€ bin and here’s where I got one of my biggest recent discoveries, that I’ve included in my OD 6th birthday party mix.  This obscure single from the fabulous italian label Phantom renders perfectly – should anyone need more evidences –  how the disco sound in Italy had a lot in common with the progressive rock sound. Both tracks here are killer, and while “Magico” is pure space rock-disco, “La Terra e il Seme” is a crazy drumming and flute session.

Susy Pintus – Live for your love

Susy

Sardinian-born singer Susy Pintus not only had an underground disco hit with the well-known “C’est magnifique”, but also managed to publish several other tracks over the years. This is the flipside of her 1986 italo-disco single, a release intended for non-italian markets only and never made available in Italy. Despite being an example of the so called “late” italo-disco (1986 was one of the last good years for the genre) “Live for your love” is a grower and not an easy catch on the market.

Superman

 

samantha

Here we go, Samantha in all her glittering beauty. Sure not the kind of super hero everyone is used to. Another transexual  sleaze-o-rama ecstasy tune from Spain, 1979. Of course all this was possible in the era of the “transiciòn”, and given the subject the word is pretty much appropriate. Track is available on a rare tiny label 7″ but also in the LP “Visca el rollo! : rock del Llobregat. Vol. 3”

Explosions feat. Leona La Viscount – Love Explosion

 

LoveRug

Vocal soulful disco madness on the rare italian Analogy label, 1979. Not everybody’s taste, but still, important as to document how vital and extremely diversified the scene was in my country during those years.

Bassano – Aspetta Ancora

bassano.jpg

 

Bassano aka Antonio Bassano Sarri, ex member of a 60s beat group, in his only disco effort from 1978. Cheese here, too much vocals but excellent synthwork all over. Bassano entered the crime section of the newspapers, as in 1992 he strangled his lover and then committed suicide throwing himself on the train rails.

Radio maintenance

The webradio is “partially” back up and running.

“Partially” because the radio frontend suffers from very high latencies: this will be fixed next.

Radio maintenance

The webradio is offline and will be back up soon. A long maintenance is in progress. Sorry for the inconvenience.

P.S. The webradio player applet is known NOT to work with Java 7. A rewrite is planned in Scala soon, in the mean time, if you still want to use it then please install the Java JRE 5 or 6. The player applet within our webradio GUI (Shampoo) is not impacted by this limitation and is Java 7-compliant.
