Notteke mix


 

Jussi Kantonen – Notteke Mix

 

Got quite a few comments focusing on the Bill Butler track Notteke 79 Movin’. So, here’s a mix built around it. I have no idea what the title means apart from the fact that it’s something Japanese. Could it be a Notteke has to do with Sukebans, vicious girl gang members? Think Kaji Meiko, Sugimoto Miki and Ike Reiko escaping from a convent school – where girls get hoisted over the altar like they do in the 70’s exploitation classic School Of The Holy Beast – and going on a rampage of cigarette smoking, wine drinking, motorcycle racing, wild dancing in psychedelic discothéques, plus kicking the shit out of gangsters!

Ennio Morricone – Seduction And Magic
Juan Carlos Calderon: Dies Irae
Saga: Compromise
Gene Farrow: Can You Keep It Up All Night
Slim Pezin & Pierre-Alain Dahan: Kuzi-Kuza
Bill Butler: Notteke 79 Moving
Arp Life: Motor-rock
H.B.P Mix: Light My Fire
J.C. Riffaud: Emotion Life And Happiness
I Romans: Squadra Speciale
Groupo C: Culto De Amor
Katunga: El Baile Del Grillo
Analisi 911: Disco Magic
Charlyne: So Sweet
Leroy Holmes: Emotions

Top of the Pops mix


 

Jussi Kantonen – Top of the pops mix

 
Long time no mix and it’ll take a few days more till I get around making one, as my mixer broke. Got a new Numark but turned out they had stuffed a wrong, inferior model into the box. Meanwhile, re-discovered an old recording of mine from years ago, filled with stuff now obviously familiar to most. A sort of sing-along, top-of-the-pops kind of thing with faves like Cerrone and Daisy Daze. A bit of Planet O could sound inspiring again, like while doing the laundry?

Death Syndicate

How’d you like it: joyful and brainless disco songs mixed with the short audio scenes as if taken from B movies.

For example, a scene of death while shaving:

Bloody Shaving

Disgustingly, isn’t it? Or the intro with an incident with the tommy-gun:

I’m from Syndicate

It was the most popular cassette compilation in early 80-s in Soviet Union. It came behind the Iron Curtain from somewhere out of East Asia with an unknown soviet sailor. Soon cassette crossed the country from the Far East to western borders and infected every cassette-player on the way.

Watch your Winamps!

1. Billy Ocean – Stay The Night (3:45)
2. La Flavour – Mandalay (6:10)
3. Lipps Inc. – Funky Town (7:45)
4. Ottawan – You’re O.K. (5:13)
5. Roberta Kelly – Kabaka Shaka (4:31)
6. Massara – Margherita (2:33)
7. Spargo – You And Me (4:11)
8. T.H.P. – Good To Me (6:56)

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

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.

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

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

Jeannette – Don’t Say Goodnight To A Lady Of Spain
Gigi – Don’t Let The Disco End

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.
