Non Rompere

gbnr586181176369689874415146566 It cost me an arm and a leg but it’s definitely worth every cent: it’s uplifting Italian disco at its best! Check out the full length webradio copy – along with a recently added Angela Werner track, pretty rare too.

Einzelgänger

egeg7-586168368981765165(a classic Moroder pool party, by demand of italocarlito ;))

Einzelgänger – Einzelgänger (7” Version) (1975)

The LP built up some cult following among Moroder fans. Compared to the 12” version, this specific cut adds some new special effects and a kickdrum from time to time.

(Got My) Dancing Shoes

pgmds6868181-9847651-585811451

Plaza – (Got My) Dancing Shoes (1979)

A word of caution: at around 40s, be prepared to suffer from serious spastic reactions and wear a stupid grin off your face, you’ve been warned.

Seriously, and IMHO, this record features an impressive electronic bassline programming. The whole album is now in the radio database thanks to SoulMan and nafm. Tops.

Plaza is in fact the prog-rock band Soft Machine (listen to their space disco monster here) trying their hands at disco, more or less.

A Harold Faltermeyer production.

The synthesiser gimmick is just infectious, no instrumental version known to date though.

Flirt

Flirt – Flirt (1979)

Christian Bruhn (who composed the impressive Captain Future OST for example) and Michael Kunze, from Silver Convention fame, teaming up for a mind blowing piece of Electronic Disco. This one rocks from start to finish.
