Another perfect package from Balkaton, with a visual rendition of the sound on the sleeve. The album is from 1980, the design timeless.

Scoretrack

mspSiegi Gruber – Scoretrack

What are the odds of finding something this weird from a Finnish flea? Kudos to DJ Piitu for his amazing digging skills and unselfish friendliness handing me this cosmic gem originating from Austria. Most perfect soundscape for fine-tuning the moods for things to come later in the night or those peak moments of slow motion disco.

Heart Beat

135502-japanese-sunset

Fumio Miyashita – Heart Beat

Japanese Fumio Miyashita have made quite a lot ambient new age records in the 80s. I’m not too familiar with these but on the Earth LP there’s some really good cosmic downtempo tunes. Heart Beat is at the moment my favourite, but it can change. quality record!

The 80s

80s-5

The 80s

The 80s were about wearing black on black, not exhanging bodily fluids, forgetting about New York and flying to London instead. Grace Jones and Pedro Almodóvar made immense impact. The best fonts were by Neville Brody, seen in magazines like Face and the Arena. From France, Philippe Starck emerged as the new designer god. Communism fell, MTV was born and there was famine in Ethiopia. Nights were spent on watching horror movies in cinemas and ultraviolent Hong Kong gangster films on vhs but people still danced on weekends. Computers took over. Anything else…no, that’s pretty much it.

The sounds? Here’s some of the right stuff in a mix.

St John’s Ensemble – St John’s Cosmic Concerto

Heroic space themes from the USSR, from an unidentified album made in 1982. The lp has a generic sleeve with pictures of yellow flowers, no texts of any kind. Track number 3 has an intro apparently lifted off the St Johns tune from 1979.

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.

The Unnamed Avenger Minimix 2 (right-click to save)

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

Disco Dance 7

mix

Icons Florinda Bolkan, Cat Stevens and Helmut Berger photographed outside a discothéque. It can’t be Le Sept in Paris as there was no canopy to announce the club at 7 Rue St Anne, just an anonymous black door. It’s not the Voom Voom either in Juan Les Pins judging by the clothes they’re wearing as nobody went there off season. Perhaps what we’re seeing is the entrance of the famous Piper club in Rome or the Audium in Madrid?

Divine Emanuelle Theme

laura

Christian Anders – Love Love Love

All hail The Divine One, played by none other than Laura Gemser, and to Christan Anders who wrote and sang the theme song for the film, known as Die Todesgöttin des Liebescamps (Death Goddess of Love Camp), Divine Emanuelle or simply Love Camp. And get this: herr Anders not only also wrote and directed the whole thing, he co-stars in it as well!

The film has everything except a character actually called Emanuelle. There are frenzied dance displays to wild 70s style disco music on a Greek island, rampant nudity, endless soft core groping sessions, violence, amazing hairdos and huge amounts of totally crazed dialoque. The Divine One is a sight to behold, a flaming creature who rules the hippie members of a sex cult with an iron hand – anyone not embracing her free love ideology is subjected to vicious whippings, or bluntly put to death. And the title theme! Oscars for best soundtrack songs have been given to lesser entries, that’s for sure.

A Few More For The Road

moreroadNights are gradually getting darker and the nightly trips to the nearest lakes feel much more dreamy. My favourite swimming spot is located about one hour drive from Turku. The road includes a short highway passage and twisty floating roads in the forest. Here are a few grooves tested on those roads. Some already approved on the dance floor too.

Charlie Hillson – Disco Flight 905

Krackers – Machines

A Band Called “O” – Coasting

TCP – Oasis
