Not sure if anybody noticed our Oldschool-Electro-Set we presented in the beginning of February. So if you missed the session here you can catch it up.
Ken Adhitya – Ready (2010)
Samples the seminal Kano – I’m Ready (1980.) Pretty well balanced IMO and full of all the current tricks and sound manipulations one would expect from a 2010 production. Check out his other edits.
They’re all clustered together on this post because they’re obviously made using the same recipe. Most of the production team is the same.
Barbara Norris – Strategy (1983)
The last one is my favourite from the lot, and unquestionably the most well known – what a catchy hook, everything’s in the name:
But fear not: a musical retrospective of their first “Musica Da Batticuore” mixes will be scheduled instead. It starts at 8pm UTC and features the cosmic grooves of volume 1 through 6, which means it will be a whole night dedicated to the electronic sound of the duo. Non stop.
Have a nice new year’s eve!
Fri. Jan. 1, 20:00 UTC – Webradio special programme : Musica Da Batticuore Retrospective – Volume 1 To 6.
Remove everything except the bassline from this already fairly minimalist tune:
And you get this monster electro hit:
Connie Case – Get On Down (1982)
This one’s a classic hit single but the different mixes are soOo efficient to me that I can’t resist to share the groove!
2nd version appears on Ali Love’s album and single in a dirty style and another juicy mix by Sébastien Léger turning to acid.
The Futur Minds Atari demo crew, circa 1991. I don’t remember any of their demos though, too bad. K. Prima, the sound artist of the team, is the second one on the right.
Kelton Prima – Disco Tonic (2009)
Kelton Prima – Night Ridin’ (2009)
I’ve spared you the annoying Popcorn melody in this sample but it’s in the full song actually. For a clean and trimmed 7 minute long version of this tune, without the notorious gimmick, check out the edit by The Robot Scientists.
Released in 1985 on the US label Electrobeat and produced by David Storrs aka The Alien Wizard the latino Kid Frost was introduced to the street culture very soon and became a dancer with the L.A. crew Uncle Jamms Army.
West Coast electro for my B-Boys and B-girls in da place!
Listen to the full “vocal mix”
with a video of “Battlezone” Atari game (more…)
Not recent at all, but it could have been written nowadays as well. Future-proof, in a way.
BTW The great Beat Broker gives away his own edit for download over there, so give it a proper listen. The original has been slightly “updated” with a new bassdrum, and some sections have been a bit chopped-up too.
Cécile – Nocturne No1 (2009)
