Overfitting Disco Juice

disco juice

Jussi Kantonen mix – D.C LaRue’s Disco Juice.

Broadcast last Saturday night on Newton Radio in NYC in D.C.LaRue’s Disco Juice show, this is 75 minutes of tracks, clips of which were posted at Overfitting Disco ages ago, posted quite recently or, as in a few cases, posted not yet at all. We’re going back to basics here a lot, into content which has always related to our target audience. Encouragement and musical motivation to drop-outs, outcasts and outlaws, people like you and me. That’s the ticket, right? No fucking Abba here.

That’s got to be Erika Blanc in the pic, btw.

Disco Fever

101 Strings Orchestra – Disco Fever

An interesting American semi-obscurity from 1979 that never got any attention and most probably never got listed in any chart in the world. There was most certainly no sign of it in Billboard magazine’s offical disco one which was a bit of a shame.

The latest Billboard charts were handed over to a young crowd just past legal age in xeroxed form every Thursday night at the Disco 33, one of the leading clubs in Helsinki. People could then vote their favourites which the dj proceeded to spin the next week, after having counted the votes. Quite often the faves of them Finns were different from those of the American clubbers. The Rivers of Babylon at number one in NYC or Atlanta? Didn’t happen.

The 33 used to be on the second floor of the building on the left hand side. Weekends there were also very popular thanks to or despite the djs being quite adventurous – this was the only place in town I ever heard a Finnish record getting spinned. No, it wasn’t Emilia’s Satan in Love, it was Auringonmaa By Anneli Pasanen. Naturally, people kept dancing during the instrumental opening part but turned their noses up when the vocals kicked in. Times sure have changed. Play it now and it’s hands in the air on the floor for sure.

I Love You

i love you

Andre Brasseur – I Love You

Belgians are better at steamed mussles, fries and super rich chocolate than producing good looking cars. But the story doesn’t end there.

“Ever since I was a young boy,
I’ve been into the disco ball.
From Soho down to Brighton
I must have seen them all.
But I ain’t seen nothing like him
In any amusement hall…

That weird, odd and sick kid
We’re sure gonna have a ball!

He never stands like a statue,
Becomes part of the machine.
Feeling all the bumpers
Always playing clean.
He plays by intuition,
The digit counters fall.

That weird, odd and sick kid
We’re all gonna have a ball!”

(with apologies to Pete Townshend)

The Other Side of Frodo

WP_20160305_001

Comet – Frodo Der Held des Rings

Cometen Zauber, the b-side of this famous twelve, is well known but the flip is certainly worth knowing too. Even for haters of everything-Lord-of-the-Rings (such as me).

As a part of the Collection Les Classiques, Overfitting Disco launches a new interpretation of the classic French mix.
This aromatic sonic fragrance contains spicy accords enriched with warm, deep, woody notes of Cannabis Sativa. Subtle, playful citrus and used condom bring an elegant and sensual side to the composition.

Mosaic

Mosaic – Kismet

Once past the final gate to madness this is what will hopefully greet me – the Sound and the Vision.

“Kismet” has already been presented here as part of a classic mix by Oki but the sleeve has not been displayed. So here goes, better late than never.

Red River Story

Peter Moesser’s Music – Red River Story

This has a wholesome, clean cowboy feel to it. Here they are riding under the vast clear skies of Texas, arriving to spend the night in a farmhouse with panoramic views of the surrounding peaks.

Aida

Giancarlo Chiaramello – Aida

Maximalist interpretation. Verdi would certainly approve. The work is from 1977, by the person behind the Naples Pop Dimensions album.

Folk Sinteza

folksinteza

Igor Savin i Orkestar Stanka Selaka – Folk Sinteza

Driving at 120 bpm and the fashionistas on the floor move freely. What next? Can’t kill the groove with the amazingly trippy Folk Sinteza. It mixes beautifully with about anything alike.

Dance With The Devil

dance_with_devil_sketch_by_annyalice-d4dqye2

Sandy Nelson – Dance With The Devil

“The fire inside me don’t fade away
The smoke dances around the room
Never again to see the light of day
And the darkness starts to consume

The dance comes close to an end
And the light flickers out
They say that I did condescend
As the devil twirled me about”

– Elizabeth Wurstel. The music is an improved version of the Cozy Powell tune, made in 1974.

Stolen Property

low rider

Stolen Property – Low Rider

In the lowrider scene cars are partly concieved as bodies. The preparation of a lowrider is a preparation of a public self as much as it is the crafting of a cultural text into an industrial product.

The 1975 track is a Munich-made take on the War classic.
