The Longest Possible From Bob

The longest possible from Bob

Bob is Bob Crewe, a solo act and a producer who first hit big with the swinging bachelor pad lounge classic Music to Watch Girls By in 1966. In 1968 he composed An Angel is Love and other tracks for the Barbarella soundtrack. During the mid-70s Bob started doing disco like everybody else, first for Disco Tex & The Sex-O-Lettes ( Get Dancin’ & I Wanna Dance With Choo ). A year later in 1976 he released an album under the moniker B.C.G. The Bob Crewe Generation. The sound is overblown cabaret disco to the max but trust Bob to get it right. Along with the early Ritchie Family albums, Begin The Beguine by Johnny Mathis and My Sweet Summer Suite by the Love Unlimited Orchestra, this is as good as that stuff gets.

Here we have three of the main titles in a mix. In 1976 nothing but the absolute longest versions of anything would do on American dancefloors. The first tune Cherry Boy is from the album as that’s the only version there is – with lyrics like “your ass is your ticket to paradise, better be ready to pay the price, it’s so nice so nice”. Street Talk is the full 9’22” 12-inch version. Menage A Trois is also the long 12″ one clocking 5’05”.

Disco After Death Mix

Jussi Kantonen – Disco After Death Mix

What happens after Azul Y Negro’s Hertzanfall/Infarcto? This is when La Santa Muerte, Lady of the Land of the Dead, will come and grab you by the hair. You will dance together first to a track from the Milkyways album, then to stuff like Pazuzu by Ennio Morricone, the very long and impossibly grand Proxima Centauri by I Signori Della Galassia, Como Te Quiero by Barbados Climax, Crazy People by Romy Haag, Piritta’s Ota (Take) and more.

Summer mix

Summer mix by Jussi

This one clocks 46 minutes and kicks off with Jackie Robinson’s Moving Like A Superstar, played using 2 long versions. Then it’s on to stuff like Bob-A-Rela: Spend The Night, classic holiday moods like Disco Instrumental: Mexico, Crackers: Superbimbo, Rudy Stone: Bump Your Baby and Desirée: Mi Amore. Plus Paisano by Tschou Tschou Combo. At one point it goes for some reason into a suitably bombastic disco version by Button Down Brass of Avenues And Alleyways, the theme from the cult tv show The Protectors. – As always, nothing but real vinyl here with no CAA (computer aided anything).

Seduction Eurodisco mix

seduction eurodisco mix
This one actually dates way back to 2007 when it was thrown together to advertise a party in Paris. The tracks were quite fresh five years ago, trust me. Now of course there’s nothing here you haven’t heard before…or is there?

Oskar Panizza & other grooves

Oskar Panizza & other grooves

Grabbed my (original!:-)) copy of the Michael Bundt album Just Arrived Cosmic Kid from 1977 and started to think what would go well with the strange three-part The Brain Of Oskar Panizza, with it’s two beat-less pauses, odd noises and applause effects. Perhaps some pulse stuff from the former DDR? Then again, Anssi and Carlo had given me a few tunes that might sound interesting in this context as well. But surely not The Love Unlimited Orchestra? Had to try that, too. – Not really a mix, more like a seque of sounds.

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!

La Malaguena minimix

La Malaguena minimix

Possessed by the fuzzy images of old Jesus Franco vhs tapes like Aberraciones Sexuales De Una Rubia Caliente I just had to throw down a mix (of sorts) with stuff like La Malaguena by Momo Yang, Sangre Negra by Ulvioni’s Show and Coimbra by Jose Calvario. Luna and Jo Bisso had to be included as well as Franco films were often Spanish-French-Italian-German co-productions.

The Real Spirit of the 80s – Part 1

 

 

A bit late but here comes our last Spaced Out Disco Session. As we’re pretty busy at the moment in case of launching our own label “Emerald & Doreen” we couldn’t pack new sounds in this session. We gonna present you the first part of an 80s set we were playing at a party which took place some months ago. Hope you enjoy that though.

Ringo Comic Mix

Jussi Kantonen – Ringo Comic Mix

 

The cutting edge Barcelona comic book artist Anselm Solsona asked me for a musical impression of an upcoming work of his. The hero of the surreal story is two real life characters combined into an imaginary one: the French singer Ringo and Evel Knievel, an American stuntman and motorcycle racer. It’s 1974. Ringo will be seen taking two women into his trailer immediately after winning a race, doing coke with Dean Martin (playboy movie star and the singer of the 60’s cha cha hit “Sway”), becoming a recording artist and falling for the gorgeous Sheila Sensation. After a terrible accident that castrates him, he is transported to the Soviet Union to be subjected to weird experiments, including a bionic penis transplant. He then emerges as a demented cyborg cycle fiend in motor mania overdrive. And there is more.

The 47 minute vinyl mix is there only to provide semi-abstract mood-setting background music for the comic so a tracklist is not a good idea. You can however detect titles like Dragster by The Amazing Bingo Band, the disco version of Sway by Bobby Rydell, Go Away Charly by The Carla Sound Orchestra, Dance On by Costa Tournas, Midnight Game by Midnight Gang, So Excited by Mandy B Jones, Petrol Pop by Michel Magne, the grandiose Amoco by Alain Barriere plus Latin Lover by Calderon to highlight the bionic dick sequence.
