One for those nights when the only people in the house are headbangers in cross necklaces and denim wests, mixing up “dramatic” and “utterly fucking hideous”. Rough but still danceable. The second track Romantic Ballad is a quite accomplished pulse groove. The record is Estonian.
Luppi&Mouse – The Gambling Priest
Luppi&Mouse – Theme From Rome
Two cinematic cuts from Rome, the grandiose follow up to Daniele Luppi’s Italian Story cd. He’s now collaborating with Danger Mouse and again using many studio musicians, singers, and authentic recording equipment from the golden era of Italian cinema to present a hommage to maestros like Ennio Morricone, Theo Usuelli and Armando Trovaioli. Even Edda Dell’Orso is there, with new recruits like Norah Jones. Essential.
|Beware: it’s absolutely not meant to be your ordinary dancefloor mixset.
It may even act as a powerful sleep inducer, depending on your current mood 🙂

Peru – Africa (1983)
I’m dreaming with this piece! A long trip (11 min.) into the deep african jungle with an exotica revival touch.
Minimal electrodisco. Despite his name Zanov however is not some sinister Soviet Union sound laboratory engineer working under fluorescent tube lights, he is from France.
|Every thirty or twentysomething will easily remember this old anime, named differently according to the country that broadcast the show (e.g. Captain Future, Capitan Futuro or Capitaine Flam).|
It is worth noting that every European country had its own version of the OST. While, in France for example, Jean-Jacques Debout (see previous post) recorded it, Christian Bruhn released his own version for the German market, in 1980.
This OST spawned countless remixes and cover versions. Some are o.k., others are really bad.
Rude 66 – No One Had A Clue (2008)
The recipe is poisoned with a tense atmosphere, some wicked breaks and acid beats.
This interesting soundtrack with various atmospheres goes from sweet themes, slow and melodic with a piano for example, to dark and intense tunes with noises.
Narrow-minded people beware, this is not a music…
It’s a red pill !
Really psychedelic, hypnotic melodies, cosmic synth, progressive, or strange experimental sounds.
It’s made of synthetic pop melodies and deep waves that can lift you very high.
|This was the main theme of a short programme on French TV called Temps X. A series and a documentary at the same time, the show was dedicated to everything connected with physics, cosmology and hard science.|
Didier Marouani – Temps X (1979)
Jean Stephan Regottaz is the real name of this fan of Space Art who released his first album, Création, in 1982. I’m no fan of his whole work (especially the later albums) but the tracks in preview have the undeniable quality of all radiating sincerity and a strong and positive DIY attitude.
