Dancin’ Fool

Frank Zappa – Dancin’ Fool (Soulwax Edit) (1979)

It’s a very gentle but dancefloor-friendly edit by 2 Many DJ’s, the proper sections are extended and looped, and the bitcrusher works. Unfortunately, they never released the full edit to my knowledge. Stay away from any other edit of this track, it’s the only one that respects the original material.

Sources of Power Edit

It was relatively tedious but I’ve finally managed to extend my previous very short edit and turn all those various tiny snippets into one 8-minute-long monster edit. Additional production kept to the bare minimum. Enjoy.

Fight Is Going On Again

One of main and mightiest soviet propaganda song (1978)  is curiously laid on funky beat and contains heroic “spaghetti-esque” trumpet solo.

Yury Chernavsky “Hello, Bananan Boy!” (How_Beezar Instrumental Re-Edit)

Here’s maestro Yury Chernavsky again. You might hear his earlier groovy disco classic “Discs Are Circling (How_Beezar Re-Edit)” performed by Krasny Maki band.

3 years later, in 1983 Chernavsky recorded his 1st solo album “Banana’s Islands” which never has been officially released.  In 1987, at the height of the Perestroyka, track “Hello, Bananan Boy” was included in film “ASSA” OST. This film is the cult for every kid grown up in 80s in USSR. I, for example, decided to become a musician right away after the final credits of the film.

“Hello, Bananan Boy” illustrates Disco-Not-Disco influence on indie dance enthusiasts in Soviet Union: bass, drums, infectious guitar riff and freaky vocal with absurd lyrics about little boy Bananan living in a telephone receiver.

In this How_Beezar Instrumental Re-Edit words are cut out, and we can delight with pure rhythm and amazing guitar riff.

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.

Janna Aguzarova “Eagle” (How_Beezar Garage Re-Edit, 2011)

 

janna_aguzarova

Livinglegend Janna Aguzarova is most talented russian pop-singer. She recorded only 2 original albums:

– “Bravo” (1987), as a lead singer of retro-oriented rock’n’roll /pop band Bravo and

– “Russian Album” (1990) — her single solo album with brutal synth-pop sound, where this song “Eagle” is taken from.

Janna Aguzarova has no official website, writes one new song per year, keeps performing and still remains the greatest russian pop-singer.

This re-edit is based on final part of the song with unexpected fat and groovy bass line, referring to great Larry Levan’s mix of Gwen Guthrie’s “Seventh Heaven”.

Heatwave

llhw-6813368

Technically, I would call that an edit, but just like the Voyage track by his mate Kris Menace (they both love House Of Music apparently!) I couldn’t find a mention to the original material anywhere in the credits. Whatever, the track rocks.

Lifelike – Heatwave (2011)

If you don’t know the original yet (that’s impossible) you can take a look here, there, or even here for the B side.

First official remix available

r-150-2522817-12887742801

It’s a kind of strange story about our first official remix. We already thought that it wouldn’t never be released anymore – but like a little miracle it’s finally done yet after more than a 14 months waiting.

You can take a look at discogs or get it at beatport (unfortunately the author gave the wrong name to our remix there – it’s the fourth track in the list).

House Of Music Footages

Better late than never…

The never-aired-before video-clip footages of two seminal House Of Music records – and maybe the two songs that define the best song-writing qualities of early Italo Disco: Stop and Dog In The Night.

Stefano Zitto himself put them online on YouTube.

Maybe you’ve already seen them a long time ago, but, as usual, I’m a bit late.

Presumably Helen (the actual track singer), Stefano Zitto’s wife.

The unnamed Australian bloke known as Mr. Master.

It’s the exact same cheap TV set and overall feeling of complete improvisation, not to mention that the camera work is boldly nauseous… but the music excuses everything.

Note that Stefano Zitto dates the Dog In The Night videoclip in 1981, not 1983.
