Lost In Love

lost in love pictureEvelyn Smith – Lost In Love

Evelyn Smith (Canada, 1982) singing about the most powerful, most dangerous and most addicting drug you can ever taste. Not my usual sound, but that classic bassline can still do wonders on the floor.

La Camarque

At La Camarque

The mythical La Camarque disco in the Cour Saleya flower market in Nice opened in 1977. For well over ten years the rhythms, colourful clientele and wild dancing on raised podiums created a fantasy that fulfilled every image and expectation of La Grand Vie on the Riviera. This is where I heard the astonishing Marcia Baila by Les Rita Mitsouko for the first time during the summer of 1985.

Eros Never Stops Dreaming

sleeping psycheDrahcir Ztiworoh – Eros Never Stops Dreaming

In the picture: Psyche at sleep… The myth of Psyche and Eros is way too complicated to be explained in here. To find it out check your library, go to therapy or get a life. The track obviously is not disco, but sure is a great opener to your next psychedelic disco set (France, 1981).

Who is to blame?

Valery Leontiev “Kto Vinovat?”
Sadly the song was never released on vinyl or CD, and exists only as a TV spot (1982).

Anxiety

A four on the floor, electronic italo beat destined for a mix. Melodic arrangements and groove go hand in hand. Some might call it borderline New Wave perhaps.

Another Q

This is not that Philadelphian Q of “The Voice Of Q”, but German Q with sole LP of the same name (X Records, 1982) which costs from 100 € at Discogs.

Video is scenes from “Zabriskie Point” and it suits the song, its mood and anxiety quite well.

Black Russian

Boris Midney is undoubtedly the main russian in international disco. He was born in Moscow, studied at the Moscow Conservatory, moved in New York and…
I would not regard him as a euro-disco creator, I guess his originality is in his gift of being a music visionary. Boris Midney used the disco and pop languages, but music he created was not a pure pop.  His best music moments are close to experiments of Walter Gibbons and Arthur Russell.

Here is last half of Caress’s “Catch The Rhythm” (1979):

Caress – Catch The Rhythm

Danny Krivit (who made one of his best edit using this part of song) recalls that Larry Levan loved that piece and spun it on 2 desks.
And here’s late Midney’s project Double Discovery with “D-D-D-Dance” (1982)

Double Discovery – D-D-D-Dance
