Capisco

Mina – Capisco

In the beginning, I love Mina because Pino Presti (LOVE!) wrote many songs to her. As I kept collecting Mina’s records, I came to know that Mina has many good Disco songs. “Capisco” is included in her LP “Kyrie” and EP “Buonanotte, Buonanotte”. Mina is popular even in Japan. But her late 70s and 80s works is not more popular than her 60s works. “Capisco” is written by Massimiliano Pani, who is a son of Mina and film actor Corrado Pani. I am addicted to this sticky beat.

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.

Susy Pintus – Live for your love

Susy

Sardinian-born singer Susy Pintus not only had an underground disco hit with the well-known “C’est magnifique”, but also managed to publish several other tracks over the years. This is the flipside of her 1986 italo-disco single, a release intended for non-italian markets only and never made available in Italy. Despite being an example of the so called “late” italo-disco (1986 was one of the last good years for the genre) “Live for your love” is a grower and not an easy catch on the market.

E’ Natale

lust-red-mirrored-glass-disco-ball-christmas-ornament-8-200mm-

One more christmas song for your use here at Overfitting Disco! A rare and pretty fine example of christmas-talo, aka italo-disco christmas song. It retains all the classic elements of italo, yet it adds the child voice of Tania Esposito. This track won the Ambrogino 1984, a local Milan competion started in 1964 by Tony Martucci, Giuseppe Radaelli and Pier Emilio Bassi. There was actually a market for children records at the time, and the compilation LPs of this were printed and distributed by different labels over the years. The competiton festival was stopped in 1985 and revamped in 2006.

One line goes like “E’ un Natale di din-don, lo dice anche il DJ” (it’s a din-don Christmas, the DJ says that too), so merry christmas!

Blue Night

Blue Night – Turn Me Loose My Design

1983. The full long version is probably the best ever italo track. That amazing poster for David Lynch’s Blue Velvet has nothing to do with the music, nor with the film as the picture has got no bondage scene like that anywhere. Still, probably one of the very best or at least one of the weirdest posters ever.

EXCLUSIVE: Flemming Dalum – “Out of this world” mix

Flemming-heads-SUN-GLASSES

(FD as seen by Kid Machine aka Mark Wilkinson)

Easter time once again, and disco lovers know there’s nothing better than turning to Overfitting Disco for the sweetest surprises!

We are immensely proud to host the biggest italo legend of the galaxy, aka The King of the Cut, mister Flemming Dalum. Flemming has a wide cult following as a DJ, as he was “there” at “the time”, living the original italo disco scene when it was on, dancing in the tube at Rimini’s legendary Altromondo club and spinning his candies taken directly at Il Discotto and Merak shops during his regular trips to Italy. He’s a living encyclopaedia of italo, as well as one the world’s biggest completist of the italo-disco genre itself, with a 25.000+ vinyl collection just devoted to a single music style.

His legendary mixtapes – published in ultra limited releases – have marked an essential contribution in the italo disco renaissance of the latest decade, released by lables such as Panama Racing, Cyber Dance, Centre Neptune, Mothball. Flemming remixed rare and overlooked italo gems, now essential classics such as Calice, Ghecko, Alex Valentini, S.C.O.R.T.A., Body Electric, Night System, D. Carred and his latest effort, a remix of the minimal ’84 new wave tune by italian band Neurox, “A Raving Night”, released in 2012 on David Vunk’s Moustache.

“Out of this world” is a hard rocking mix with exclusive tracks, an uber cool selection of unreleased tunes and mega rare obscure italo 7-inchers for the hardcores!

You can call me Mister Ritmo

As we say in Russia: the lad has said – the lad has done. It was not so easy as I thought in the beginning…

So, at first it was like that. Now, when Randi doesn’t sing, but only ecstatically shouts, mock disco-rock schlager transmuted into experience of disco-climax (at least, as I hear it).
