Gimme Your Love

disco-fetishPino Presti & The Hathaway Band – Gimme Your Love 7″ Mix

Pino Presti & The Hathaway Band – Gimme Your Love 12″ Mix

Here are both the 7″ and the 12″ versions to satisfy your hungry needs. As expected the 33 rpm 12″ version offers superior dynamics, but sounds way too polished to my taste. It will tempting to play the 12″ though to feel that bass throbbing through your entire body.

Gimmi More + Na Real Sekele Fo’ Ya

dancing-disco-womanRonnie Peller Hot Police – Gimme More

Pasteur Lappé – Na Real Sekele Fo Ya

Gimmi More playing at about 120 bpm. Yes, they’re dancing. It’s super hot sexy disco on shiny black vinyl, so what else did you expect? Deep conversations? But what to play next? Fingers running through the box of trusted 7s… Tany Welck – Sexy Man, no no, think it would kill the groove this time… Painfully embarrassing panic attack coming… about 52 seconds left and still no idea. Sure I’m gonna die now and stop playing records forever. But of course I’ve done my homework and made notes on records – this mixes well with that Pasteur Lappé track. No shaky fingers, just bring it in at the first from the closing beats of Gimme More… it’s close… a bit faster… yes… now… no no no… a bit too soon… tap once to brake a little… now… on the beat… slide it in… bass off, bass on, no time for other tricks… and boom, dancers should be happy for the next 6 minutes.

Markku Aro

marku-aro

Markku Aro – Lalabye

This Finnish schlager personality first tried his hand on dance stuff in 1976 with a rubbish rendition of Reach Out I’ll Be There. The following year it was time for a cover of Drum’s Lalabye, a massive hit in his home territory. As 1977 was drawing close and the buzz on a certain film that had just been realesed in the states grew stronger, the guy was presented to the disco hungry public in horrible white polyester. Unfortunately, the sleeve was slide dyed and the upper half of the suit ended up with a sad shade of yellow.

At the Barbarela’s

Opened in 1969 in Palma de Mallorca right off the central Plaza Gomilla in the swinging El Terreno part of town, the Discoteca Barbarela wowed the crowds with it’s capacity for 2000 dancers, a 34 meters long bar, go go girls and boys in gages, plus world class live performers like Wilson Picket and José Feliciano. Of course the octagon-shaped hall switched to recorded music in 1975 and massive disco revelries ensued.

Samurai

samurai

Samurai

Following a set of rules that later came to be known as the Bushido, a samurai served the warlords and the nobility without fear of death. An honorable samurai was like kami-no-kaze, an elemental spirit of the wind, striking like the thunderstorms of 1274 and the typhoon of 1281 that helped the samurai defenders of Japan hold back the Mongol invaders despite being vastly outnumbered.

Once his master died, or had his master for some reason disregarded him, the samurai became a ronin, a wandering man without home or destiny. The only honorable option then was to commit hara-kiri, a ritual suicide.  Some honored this code, some did not. Those who chose to live were forced to sever all contats to their past life and to haunt the night like lonely wolves.

Here’s a couple of tracks for the samurai in you.

Heart Beat

135502-japanese-sunset

Fumio Miyashita – Heart Beat

Japanese Fumio Miyashita have made quite a lot ambient new age records in the 80s. I’m not too familiar with these but on the Earth LP there’s some really good cosmic downtempo tunes. Heart Beat is at the moment my favourite, but it can change. quality record!

Urania

syd_mead_track_three

Guy Houzet – Urania

Probably the best record I bought this year. The exquisite textures are quite distinctively 1977 with strings linked to sweet and pleasant flavors,  balanced by sharp bitter and umami tastes of the brass instruments. The sensory experience is topped by the additional zing of the synths. Total perfection.

Oliver Robotron

space-jogging

Misha Panfilov Sound Combo – Oliver Robotron

Chase jazz, deep space mysticism, desert disco and sounds made by something in high heels sashaying up from the vaults of Cinecittá – Misha Panfilov Sound Combo’s latest seven combines all that without missing a beat. This is one of those rare records with both sides ready to go down a storm in a dark basement as well as by the pool at sunset. In other words, a perfect Overfitting Disco package.

Space Jogging has sharp electronic motifs that squirm around a huge bassline and fat beats but as always, we must look closely at the b-side. Oliver Robotron is a more detailed walk thru what seems like the neon lit back alleys Soho during the Cool Britannia era when it was still about proper old school clubbing. Here especially, Mr Panfilov and his gang  excel with ultrasharp playing and astute arrangements, keeping the incredients fresh with personal touches whilst looking towards the future.

Recorded in Estonia in 2016, out By Funk Night Records of Detroit.

Longer and more efficent than the one credited to Aural Exciters.

There is a a gag-proof way to go this deep. Place the tip of your tongue on the roof of your mouth. Then let it hit the underside of your tongue.
