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)

Stay For The Night

This 1981 compilation contains some pleasant surprises, that makes it stand out from most other Danish releases at the time. OK nice, and probably most well known, is the title song by Jannie Høeg and Czech/Danish producer Wolfgang Käfer. But the instrumentals on the record is where the action’s really at, especially on the two tracks below.

Wolfgang Käfer – Fly And Spider

Wolfgang Käfer – Ride of Revenge

Slow It Down

Modern Rocketry – Homosexuality

World famous researches William H Masters and Virginia E Johnson as well as PH.D. Dr.Mai-Britt Bergström-Walan at the Swedish Institute for Sexual Research who organized the 1976 International Symposium of Sex Education and Therapy in Stockholm and who has appeared in such groundbreaking educational films as The Language Of Love and it’s equally sincere sequels, strongly advocate moderating the rhythm of the movement and slowing it down for more satisfying results. Works in the case of this Modern Rocketry track from 1985, too.
