The Unnamed Avenger Minimix 2

868633176837456.24563483486231

It’s essentially the spiritual sequel to The Unnamed Avenger Minimix. It’s still as strange and for sure totally lacks direction. This time we trade cosmic luchadores and Bollywood fighters for Afro super sentais. Sort of. Enjoy.

Kudos to Jussi and Discotruper for part of the selection. (more…)

Andromeda

AndrocoverCUTSML

We are proud to announce the vinyl repress of a track that Overfitting Disco presented here exclusively for your listening pleasure since its very initial discovery in 2008: Andromeda.

One of the biggest disco unearthings of the latest years, italocarlito tells us a bit of story about it.

Q: Tell us more about the story of Andromeda.

A: I found this record in 2006, quickly overlooked it and left it there lying around until 2009, when I started playing it in my gigs around Europe. I distinctly remember playing it one of the very first times at Albion’s Camp Cosmic and the audience was shocked, with many coming to the dj booth to ask what this tune sung in italian was. The track was originally published on the small “Papaya” label in Italy in 1981 and of the 500 7″s originally pressed, most got unsold and sent back to the label to be stocked, where – due to complaints regarding sound quality of the pressing – they ended up being destroyed. Then I decided out of the blue I wanted to (try) repressing it, but it wasn’t an option for me to just make a repress out of a vinyl rip, as much as high-quality that could be. Ends up it took close to five years to track down the rights owner and obtain the license for a legit pressing. Surprisingly, when all hopes were lost, also the 24 tracks analog mastertape was found and dubbed electronically with the latest technology. But that was a complicated stage, too, as the tape suffered the “sticky shed syndrome” and had to be cleaned and treated in order to be digitized.

Q: Why a 12″ and which tracks contains?

A: The 12″ offers more grooves space, and I could have the chance to work with the best Italian artisans: Cesare Marchesini did the delicate tape transfer stage and lacquer artisan Roberto Barbolini did a very special lacquer as the durations allowed to make a 22 and 1/2 mastering one, which is the top level. Senio Corbini at Narada Studio was my Pro Tools wizard doing the magic in the studio with the tracks.
There was no original 7″ mixdown in the tape, so I chose to just present the original version culled from the 7″ as a historical document, plus two new versions: a slightly extended one that respectfully maintains all the original mixdown choices, but revealing the violin parts, previously unhearable in the 45.  So, the 12″ contains an extended version,  the og 7″ version as well as a remix by italian legend DJ Beppe Loda, who loved the track and embarked very happily in this project.  He worked “Andromeda” in his “afro-electronic” taste, that we all know through his mythical “Afro” tapes serie and his productions under the monikers Egotrya and MC1.

Q: Tell us about the famous sample you can hear in the track

A: When we opened the tracks in the studio for the first time, it was hearable someone just recorded the first two bars from the vinyl and made a tape loop out of it. Incredibly, and this is one of the strongest peculiarities of such track, it turns into something completely different and has a value of its own, possibly becoming the definitive version everybody would have wanted to play out back the days: a relentless space disco-ish track, with dreamy lyrics talking about a creature called Andromeda, coming from a galaxy far far away.

Q: Who is Andromeda?

A: Andromeda is the singer of the track, but it’s not the author of the track. I know her name through the author, but this part of the story will be told in the documentary that I’m trying to have produced.

Q: A documentary?

A: Yes, on the italian overlooked disco scene of the 70s. Back in the days these disco tracks suffered the stigma of being pure-entertainment ones VS politically engaged ones. This heritage – once considered garbage – is now a major goldmine of obscure gems and – as similarly as happens with the tracks posted on this blog – resurfaces thanks to the hard diggin’ work of passionate DJs, trying to educate a newer audience to “odd” disco tracks which have nothing less in quality to mainstream disco productions. On the contrary, it’s a very interesting display of the super-experimental work of independent authors trying to make themselves themselves known in previously corporate-ruled field of business.

Q: Any other releases on “Disco Segreta” soon?

A: Yes, stay tuned!

“Andromeda” is out on a limited numbered vinyl edition of 500 copies, sold on discosegreta.it. Pre-sales started February 28th, official release date will be April, 30th.

“Andromeda” original version will be on rotation *exclusively* on Overfitting Disco 24/7 radio until its official release.

Raul Gomez (Cuba)

Raul Gomez

Cuban musician, producer, arranger and composer Raul Gomez was responsible of some of the nicest Disco acts to come out of the island. After a period of exploration through local rhythms, in 1977 he decided to venture into contemporary genres, and then released the acclaimed “Instrumental” album. It took four years to produce a new studio album, the lesser-known “Luces En La Pista”, which was released in 1981 on the Areito-Egrem label (on the same Record label as the previous albums). Two of the nicest tracks were Luces En La Pista and Erupcion.

Vicente Rojas (Cuba)

Vicente Rojas

The enigmatic Cuba, always so close and so distant of the Occidental traditions. The cradle of several Latin rhythms that were spread through diverse cultures. In the late 70s the island also got inseminated of the glamorous Disco vibes, and some musicians decided to explore the then-new genre. One of them was Vicente Rojas, a prolific composer, arranger and producer, who was a key member of the legendary EGREM factory (the main local record company). In 1978 he released the brilliant “A Las 2 A.M.” album, whose music was integrally composed by him (four tracks in collaboration with Alberto Vera, who formed a solid tandem with Rojas). A total of 12 seasoned musicians participated in these recordings, whose members included guitarist Omar Barroso, and pianist Pedro Coto, among others. The highlights of the album are: En La Nieve, En La Orbita and Esto No Es Para Bailar. This was Roja’s only solo-work in the 70s.

CAOBA a.k.a. GRUPO CAOBA (GUATEMALA)

Rene Gruau (Caoba)

It is very gratifying to see how the diversity of the Disco music phenomenon impacted even in some of the unlikely places on this planet. The contributions to the genre coming from Guatemala are practically nonexistent. The autochthonous music in this small country from Central America (with a 40% of indigenous population) is strongly influenced by the Maya roots, which are rarely amalgamated with foreign rhythms. Caoba (a.k.a. Grupo Caoba) was a Rara Avis in that specific region, and not much is known about the band. They deliver us some interesting versions of classic Disco numbers (included in their one and only known album from 1977 on Polydor), with the inclusion of Marimba (a local type of xylophone), which gave Caoba a particular and distinctive sound. Romance De Primavera was an instrumental version of Donna Summer’s Spring Affair, and is surely the standout track. But not less interesting is their version of Love In C Minor (Amor En Do Menor). That is, in the context of productions from the region.

Caoba – Romance De Primavera (1977)

Caoba – Amor En Do Menor (1977)

The Real Spirit of the 80s – Part 1

 

 

A bit late but here comes our last Spaced Out Disco Session. As we’re pretty busy at the moment in case of launching our own label “Emerald & Doreen” we couldn’t pack new sounds in this session. We gonna present you the first part of an 80s set we were playing at a party which took place some months ago. Hope you enjoy that though.
