Lady Valentine

monte-kristo.jpg Monte Kristo‘s second release in 1986. A perfect instance of the Italo Disco production of that era.

Some vocal intonations remind me of Valerie Dore, but it is less spacey and more pop here.

Dragon’s Lair

Harmless piece of music from the Italo Disco veteran Koto. Old school gamers will easily identify where the samples used all along the song originate.

It appears a lot of cover versions have sprung over the years

Mito – Droid (1982)

Hipnosis – Droid (1987)

Even Legowelt gave it a fair try

Disco Romance

Sally Shapiro released her first album in november 2006 and it was clearly one of the best discoveries of this past year. It’s full of nostalgic intents blended with energetic italo disco beats. A positive regression and an obvious homage to the best of italo disco.

Two samples from Disco Romance, available on Diskokaine Records.
