Voices From Nowhere

Almost exclusively known for his soundtracks for Lucio Fulci’s movies, Fabio Frizzi perfects his art in 1980 for the movie The Beyond. Impressive piece of work, multi-layered (not that rare for a euro-horror movie soundtrack but worth noting) and with a simple but haunting theme.

I always used to think that Frizzi’s scores were out of touch with the pictures from Fulci, but in fact it is for the best: this is an original score and the proof that Frizzi is a great composer.

This is the movie main theme (watch out for the incredible flute),

Fabio Frizzi – Voci Dal Nulla

On a side note, High Contrast – Everything’s Different samples it with great effect

Basic


Dusseldorf May 2007 – from left to right: Michael Mertens (from the Propaganda fame), Beppe Loda and Francesco Boscolo (MC1 aka Memory Control One)

What a terrific single! The best slow motion disco I was able to listen in ages. Great solo synthesizer along with a perfect uplifiting mood. The drum science of Beppe Loda paired with the ethereal keyboards of Francesco Boscolo. Too bad, it doesn’t appear they’ve teamed up again after this release. Ladies and gents: Memory Control One.

MC1 – Basic (B. Loda Remix 2) (1984)

Hand-picked Funk: 1980-1985 (and a bit of Disco and Garage too) – Part 1

Here’s a quick selection of a few 80s funky tracks you MUST play when you invite me 😀 A common feature is the use of a massive groovy bassline… and sometimes quite a catchy vocal loop.
