Locomotive Breath

cat gang challengerCat Gang – Locomotive Breath

That bass kicks like a 528 Hemi with mechanical roller cam and individual throttle bodies. So who cares about a luggage rack option or painfully pretensions poses, when burnouts are available anytime you want. Please do remember to check an even more equally impressive version Jussi posted about 3 billion years ago.

Octagon

onyxOnyx – Octagon

Der Alte was a childhood favorite for many drop-out teens like me. Mostly because there was nothing else available on Finnish television. Even thought I watched too many episodes, I can’t remember this cosmic moment from the episode “Kalt wie Diamant” (Germany, 1983).

China

china 1China – China

5.53 a.m. Despite the overwhelming fatigue sleeping is out of question. Sunrise in May is simply too precious to be missed. Perhaps gentle airy cigarettes on the balcony? China 12″ roaring at 108 bpm? Of course not. The people next door would probably mind. Be quiet. Don’t smoke. The downsides of overtly safe urban housing. Would it be too late for a drive to archipelago to find abandoned buildings?

Aqua

more Aqua

Let us remember that the ocean covers 71 percent of the Earth’s surface and contains 97 percent of the planet’s water, yet more than 95 percent of the underwater world remains unexplored.

Deep sea expeditions have discovered mysterious objects of unknown origin, as well as entire jungles and huge canyons reaching to uncharted depths.

Here’s music from Edgar Froese’s Aqua, among other sounds of similar submerged nature. Beats, primal rhythms and whispers from the unknown.

We are 30 meters deep, then 60 meters –

Fredi’s Tähtien Taa

fredi

Fredi – Tähtien Taa

Fredi – Se Outoa On

Fredi – Syntinen Yö

Tunes poured from the Holy Grail of Finnish disco, the 1978 album by Fredi. Tähtien Taa translates as To Beyond The Stars, Se Outoa On (a version of Magic Fly, check the repeated chanting of the original title near the end of the clip) as It’s Strange, and Syntinen Yö as The Sinful Night:”…I can sense the degredation, she dances and blasphemes, coaxing my vices out into the open…”

The 80s: black on black, John Woo heroic bloodshed films and lots of synthesizer music like this. Westway was already included in my birthday mix.

Special message to all who are Disco

bday2015_1

Ben Thomas – Sooleymon

Midnight Movers Unltd – Follow The Wind pt 1.

Face it. You’re no saint so indulge to the max in your vices at least once a year. In the evening of 16th of January A.D. 2015, give in to gluttony, lust and greed and celebrate with us all that is excessive, over-the-top and brilliant in the music we love, for hours and hours. Italo, funk, disco and beyond. Rare tracks and anthems. It’ll all be there to really wallow in, from exotic, sophisticated hothouse flowers to indescribable, sick sonic funghi from hell. From deep powerful vocals by mighty Divas to the flimsiest sighs from young girls who look like they’re sixteen but act like they’re twenty-one. No holds barred. Top tunes from a top lineup. The event will be re-broadcast on the 17th in case it’ll all become too much for you – though of course too much of a good thing is the best thing ever.

Let Me Love You Tonight

Vicky Edimo ‎– Let Me Love You Tonight -1980

Vicky Edimo – Let Me Love You Tonight

(1980, Zagora ‎- FR / Mariann ‎- SWE)

Daddy Daft Punk on board, I mean Mr. Vangarde aka Daniel Bangalter is behind this funny production for Victor Edimo. Please don’t say cheesy, it’s a simple song like a marshmallow neither less nor more. And I like it just the way it is… mmm Don’t take it too seriously disco is D.I.S.C.O. SooOo good.

Lithuanian disco classic (1982) will not forgive if you’ve skipped cardio sessions. Then again, what could be a better way to workout than dancing in euphoria to high speed euro disco?

Long Hard Climb

climb fbSkorpio – Long Hard Climb

I kinda like the Skorpio long play with all these dark and weird italoesque tracks. Still would trade it anytime to a Pikes Peak run in a ’69 Fastback racer.

Escapade With Zero

1156Skorpio – Escapade With Zero

“The possibility of dialectics of desire, of an unpredictability of bliss: The bets are not placed, there can still be a game.” Quoting Roland Barthes here because his theory of jouissance (bliss) pretty much sums how I feel about collecting and playing disco records. It’s not the mere pleasure (plaisir), but the possibilities to unpredictable connections between various sounds, images and desires that keep the game interesting.
