Dancefloor Mix


 

Jussi Kantonen – Dancefloor Mix

 

This one is basically a re-recording of my dj set at Mbar in Helsinki a while back. Real vinyls, no serato, no cds. Long instrumental jams, some electro-ish stuff, many tracks you obviously already know. Could be there are a couple of obscure titles too, so check it out. The whole thing is built with 3 separate sequences, the first one ending with Soul On Fire. There were 2 djs that night, the other came on when I needed to go and talk to friends, etc.
Please pay attention to a) the incandescent Safari Of Love by Miro and b) As Freneticas from Rio doing Dancin’ Days. Perfect summer records or what.
tracklist, approx:
Echoes Of Jerusalem – Echoes Of Jerusalem
Qua la Mano ost – His Majesty
Black Magic – Soul On Fire
Glem Curtis – Need Your Love dub
Miro – Safari of Love
Afrika Bambaataa & Soul Sonic Force – Looking For The Perfect Beat instr.
Saturn 1 – Magic Fly
Bernard Estardy – Red Wave
LEB Harmony – Discorgan
Okko Bekker – Ganges Delta
Herbie Mann – Kidnappin’ Lover
a bit off the Orfeo Negro ost
As Freneticas – Dancin’ Days
Reverberi – Bahia
Bonnie St. Claire – Don’t Let Them Stop The Music
Denise McCann – Computer Breakdown

Zoom mix

 

Jussi Kantonen – Zoom Mix

Here’s the two great cuts from the 2nd Zoom album, mixed in and out of other tunes. No theme as such but the general feel seems again to evoke scenes of flying to distant destinations. The air hostesses with big hair are there too, of course, in case of food poisoning and loss of oxygen. Done with two Technics using vinyl only, no CGE (computer generated editing).
Pierre Porte – Intro
Nicky Bulldog – Dog Power Song
Performance – Hong Kong Connection
Zoom – Delta Flight
Seeds of The Earth – Planting Seeds
Andre Gagnon – Wow
Steve Nicholas – American Symphony
Zoom – Flying High
City – Bulgarien Rock
Marian Stockley – Give Me Love
Space Factory – E.D.U.A.L.C. 2001 Odyssey
Action – Number One
Countdown – Raptus
Mandy B Jones – 1 2 3 4
Earl Venus & Eternity – Time Tunnel
Apache – Un Million De Ratas
Gene Farrow – Danger Zone
Hawkwind – outro

The Spaced Out Disco Session May 2011

 

Hey guys!

Are you ready for a ride into the past of Cosmic and Space Disco? This is the file from our latest session last Friday. Though we are not so in that “Real Disco”-knowledge of the most blog-posts we think that our Space Disco Classics Mix fits very well into this context. Something different like our mixes so far here on air.

The Edwige Fenech Party Mix


Jussi Kantonen – Edwige Fenech Mix
Edwige jumped on the table in her fabulous sequined bell bottoms and matching top outfit and started to shake. For maximum effect I played some mutated space disco – from vinyls only of course – and this got the rest of the guests on their feet as well. Lead by Edwige her arms open wide, the dancers formed a line around the room: Rosalba Neri, Klaus Kinski, George Hilton, Gloria Guida, Anita Strindberg, Florinda Bolkan, Luc Merenda, Eva Robins, Udo Kier and quite a few others shimmied past me. More music: the one and only Jeannette. Everything became hazy. Was it all just a hallucination?

intro
David Keat – Cosmo Galactic Prism
Fuji Yama – Japan Disco
Symphonic Band Orchestra – Kafar Abida
Solar Searcher – Space Encounter
Animation – Space Traveler
BJ Thomson – Discorient pt 2
Pinups – If You Can’t Boogie
Eldorado – Fast Friends
Gus Kamaras – Taboo
Sirena – The Dancer
Best Wishes – Brasilo Brazila

Banzaii – Rhythm America/Viva America
Jeannette – Don’t Say Goodnight To A Lady Of Spain
Gigi – Don’t Let The Disco End
Tony Sinclair Orchestra – Gipsy Strings
Soul Iberica Band – Funky Flamenco
Peppers – A Taste of Honey

The Spaced Out Disco Session – April 2011

This is the blog with the one and only message: “Vinyl kills MP3” – and as you know this is our credo as well. Some time ago we had the honour to make an exclusive mix for this blog as a podcast. This was the mix being scheduled last Friday as our Spaced Out Disco Session April 2011. As usual it is recorded live only with our vinyl records – with one exception: the first track (it’s one of ours), because there isn’t available any vinyl.

Nunsploitation Mix

jess-franco

Jussi Kantonen – Nunsploitation Mix

The blog honours a film genre inhabiting a special place in our hearts: the Nun Movie. The narrative (?) of the mix follows the storylines of cult classics like Dominico Paolella’s “Storia di una monaca di clausura/Story of a cloistered nun” and Jess Franco’s “Die liebesbriefe einer Portugiesischen nonne/Love letters of a Portuguese nun”.

In fear of a scandal, a wealthy family forces their promiscuous 16-year old daughter into a convent. Immediately, she turns the place into a hotbed of Sapphic desires. Driven insane with jealousy and lust, the Mother Superior accuses the newcomer of being in league with the devil himself. As the hysteria accelerates with flagellations and nuns dancing naked on the altar, the Holy Inquisition is called to investigate. Everyone is tortured horribly and the Mother Superior is burned at the stake. The surviving Brides of Christ are all sold into slavery.

tracklist:

opening credit sequence: – Ogni Pensiero Vola

Philarmonics – Spring

Bus Connection – 5 o’Clock In The Morning

Susana Estrada – Acariciame

Fabulous Faces Orchestra – Evolution

Pearly Gates – Burning Love

Krono – Krono

F.G.T.H. – Welcome To The Pleasuredome DMC mix

Cozy Powell – Dance With The Devil

Fini Tribe – De Testimony

end credit sequence: Nabucco

As Loose As The Eurostoxx

vaalate-81498367684736847681768

An old DJ set I’ve dug up from a dusty hard drive, most likely recorded in late 2008 (hence this curious name.) I don’t recall the set being aired on the webradio, nor mixing it, but I’m defo proud of it upon listening to it now.

Big fat warning: if you can’t stand unlikely mashups, bits of eurodance and chiptunes here and there, loads of italo disco covers with huge sawtooth waves, please don’t listen to it. This post does really deserve its ‘wtf?’ tag.

Gucko Gucko

Various Artists – Gucko Gucko 20110302

Vintage communist disco from Eastern Europe. It starts with regular (but twisted) disco, passes through electronic wtf territories, and finally ends with unashamedly cheesy italo disco and synthpop.

Yes, I know, the mixing is either atrocious or non-existent, but most tracks were severely warped. I honestly did my best. Excessive sweating, and astronomically huge amounts of swear words were involved in my failed attempt at beatmatching everything.

Taxi Driver mix

taxi-driver2

Jussi Kantonen – Taxi Driver mix

The report to the commissioner states that taxi driver Travis Bickle and Iris, the teenage prostitute he was trying to save from her pimp, went disco dancing on several nights prior to the shootings on Lower East Side. Travis Bickle or Iris were not available for comment, but according to a friend of hers, she liked to frequent clubs like Infinity and Boombamakaoo.

As documented in Vince Aletti’s book The Disco Files the programming was quite surprisingly eclectic in New York in 1976. Iris and Travis could have been doing the latin hustle to salsaesque tracks (Ruis Ortiz: Hot Blood, the opening cut of the mix) along with Salsoul-style orchestral titles (Night Journey by Doc Severinsen which follows the Ortiz track, Darkness by The Zacar Orchestra, All I’ve Got by Astrud Gilberto, among others), pracing up and down wildly to eurodisco (Disco Do Brazil by Paolo, Desperado by Sgt. Cracker’s Band etc), as well as oscillating free form to fast tempo jazz disco like Sugar Free by Hank Crawford. Travis can’t have been much of a dancer, though.
