Defender

800px-raybanwayfarer.jpg

The Defender single is the latest collaboration known to date between Alan Braxe and Fred Falke on Vulture Music.

Bliss is a fairly enjoyable piece of lazy Disco while Defender is more like a ‘sub-Robot Rock‘ with a housey beat… There’s a track for everyone’s taste: I like the first one.

Defender – Bliss (2005)

Defender included the enigmatic Savage as well, who then works exclusively with Falke.

Spaceship Crashing

ufodm2906_468x327.jpg

“We are a spaceship generation, we don’t need no destination. Are you ready, ready, ready for space? Spaceship crashing, disco flashing” here’s the story, in a nutshell.

Now mix it up with some laser sounds, add a few synthetic layers on top and a steady bassline… ah, and don’t forget to put the flanger on of course. I simply love that recipe because it works every time on me 🙂

Written and produced by the Disco hero Supermax

Bamboo – Spaceship Crashing (1979)

Subway – Satellites (2007)

I don’t know much about Subway an electronic duo but the only thing I’m sure is that this track “Satellites” on their 2nd release for Soul Jazz Records is damn great to my ears.

Càpita

darcie08.jpg

One of the few Fabio Frizzi‘s side-projects and indeed quite far from his usual soundtrack material. Written by the man himself and produced in partnership with his younger brother Fabrizio.

D.J. Look – Càpita (1983)

I got this one for cheap at a used record shop and I’m trying hard to gather some more limited pressings from Frizzi at a reasonable price. If you happen to sell for example the Hot Cha-Cha EP don’t hesitate to contact me…
