This, is cheesy. The cheese fondue of Italo Disco. And it doesn’t even come from the land of pasta and pizza, it’s actually Canadian.
Costanza – Fantasy (1984)
Need some workout tips? Do it the Soviet way! With some help from this 1984 compilation.
Currently sells for as low as €0.01 at some second-hand retailers, a real bargain for your stretched muscles.
Would you believe it if I told you that Acid House was invented in 1982?
Synthesizing – Ten Ragas To A Disco Beat clearly leans more towards proto-House than it is just straight Indian folk music. It already featured that typical TB-303 bassline 5 long years before Phuture began fiddling with their gear.
All those samples come from the 2010 reissue by Bombay Connection and the re-mastering is flawless.
The Robot Scientists – The Spaced Out Disco Session – May 2010 (Right click to download)
Loads and loads of both cheesy and groovy tracks inside: the main motto here is “Hi-NRG is fun”. It must be one of their very finest DJ sets so far IMHO.
|It cost me an arm and a leg but it’s definitely worth every cent: it’s uplifting Italian disco at its best! Check out the full length webradio copy – along with a recently added Angela Werner track, pretty rare too.|
G. Bri – Non Rompere (1980)
Ok it was yesterday, but I couldn’t connect at a point…….also, some say it’s in july…..close insiders say Giorgio is in Ortisei, Italy right now with his family….I think we all like to imagine him in a Beverly Hills villa-style surrounded by hot babes sipping champagne by the pool…..
Official and less official bios state Giorgio Moroder was born yesterday 70 years ago……HAPPY BIRTHDAY and long live the only one and true legend of disco………
What to say about one of the greatest music producers ever? Rivers of ink might flow………so this is just a selection of my fav Giorgio hits….
From here to eternity
Knights in white satin
and of course, I Feel Love, original not Patrick Cowley remix….still at least 10 new versions a year of this pop up ……….
and perhaps my ever favourites, which are Munich Machine – La Nuit Blanche (and “In love with love”)
Said that, to date no one still knows how many songs he has written, produced or performed as GM or under the immense amount of monikers……..a complete official discography still doesn’t exists, not to mention any attempt of tracing back all the songs derived or taking samples from the works of Gm…….
Ken Adhitya – Ready (2010)
Samples the seminal Kano – I’m Ready (1980.) Pretty well balanced IMO and full of all the current tricks and sound manipulations one would expect from a 2010 production. Check out his other edits.
