|Fantastic progressive piece of instrumental music,
I’m sure you will get goosebumps.
Black Gold – C’mon Stop (1983)
I don’t know much about Joël Fajerman except that he used to produce a lot of soundtracks for the French television during the eighties.
Anyway, his whole work is really inspiring. Just take a listen to the main theme for a French series called l’Aventure Des Plantes and make up your own opinion.
Joël Fajerman – Flowers Love (1982)
For all you curious people over here, Flowers Love has been played using a Prophet V (main theme and soundscape layers) and an Arp Odyssey (with a resonant filter, for the distinct ‘voice-like’ sound) and sequenced through a 16-step analog Arp sequencer.
Blatant follow-up to Part 1. More groovy gimmicks…
Another fine tune from the Midwest duo Josh Barnes and Justen Parris aka Automatic & Silk. Chicagoan House all the way. Bouncing and cheerful.
which BTW samples sections from:
Margaret Reynolds – Keep On Holdin’ On (1982)
Street Hawk is the archetype of the 80’s series, the story is in the same vein as Airwolf or Knight Rider but the final result is a bit weaker than its direct competitors IMO. The music score is quite good though. Thanks to Tangerine Dream‘s know-how.
Tangerine Dream – Le Parc (1985)
Almost exclusively known for his soundtracks for Lucio Fulci’s movies, Fabio Frizzi perfects his art in 1980 for the movie The Beyond. Impressive piece of work, multi-layered (not that rare for a euro-horror movie soundtrack but worth noting) and with a simple but haunting theme.
I always used to think that Frizzi’s scores were out of touch with the pictures from Fulci, but in fact it is for the best: this is an original score and the proof that Frizzi is a great composer.
This is the movie main theme (watch out for the incredible flute),
On a side note, High Contrast – Everything’s Different samples it with great effect
Dusseldorf May 2007 – from left to right: Michael Mertens (from the Propaganda fame), Beppe Loda and Francesco Boscolo (MC1 aka Memory Control One)
What a terrific single! The best slow motion disco I was able to listen in ages. Great solo synthesizer along with a perfect uplifiting mood. The drum science of Beppe Loda paired with the ethereal keyboards of Francesco Boscolo. Too bad, it doesn’t appear they’ve teamed up again after this release. Ladies and gents: Memory Control One.
Here’s a quick selection of a few 80s funky tracks you MUST play when you invite me 😀 A common feature is the use of a massive groovy bassline… and sometimes quite a catchy vocal loop.
