More HI-NRG?!

HI-NRG?!

Why not. After the recent 80s Bass post I got several messages requesting for more so here goes, another quick peek at London’s Heaven club on a Saturday night in 1984. Take a cab to Charing Cross station at midnight, walk  down Villiers Street, turn right, step under the arches below the station and there you are, ready for the mass of torsos in the dark, the stench of poppers and the thump.

Amor

Enterprise – Amor

The essence of music is a concept with no real right or wrong, but to ask the question What is good music? and find an answer that resonates personally can bring a different depth into the way of expressing your inner world, or just  expressing a feeling you can’t put words to. With this Spanish track we get to the true essence of good disco music.

Black Mercedes

Skorpio – Black Mercedes

Mr. Eddy says his 450 SEL 6.9 has 1400 hp. I wouldn’t dare to doubt that. I wish Mr. Lynch had included this Skorpio track in Lost Highway.

Dun Wanna

Since we started about eight years ago the scene has been going places via the scenic route. It’s been substantially more good looking. Dancing and conversation and the whole bit started responding better to our kind of rhythm, tone, body movement, happy accidents and celestial mechanics. Now intelligence meets ecstasy with a samurai-like sharpness.

Along with disco, discoesque boogie has during these years been injected into our DNA. That kind of vibes are radiating strongly in the UK now, as can be heard in Burnin’, the brand new first realese by Birmingham band Dun Wanna. The track is offically coming out tomorrow Thursday the 28th and is already  getting air play in the city, playing to win.

The music is sleek but strong and not suffering from minimalist bulimia. The arrangement is contemporary in an astute way and we are among it’s areas of responsibility. Above is a preview clip courtesy of one of the band members, so take a listen!

Rhodas

El Sueño De Hyparco – Rhodas

Floating at 90 bpm. Feels more like being a bit too drunk to move away from the sofa than imagine perfect beaches in Ródos.

Crush

Borderline cheesy vocal Abba-esque English disco production, only released in Italy in 1981.
But where the dirt is, flowers blossom…..and African Dance is a nice little gem that really has it all! I use to play it slowed down, as here presented, to turn it into a disco monstah.

This is how you Dance

John Barry – This Is How You Dance

You do know the essential dance moves, guys? Let Adalgiso guide you.

The Sexy Rolling Body: “This is a move that kind of looks like you are a snake,” says Adalgiso. Stand with your feet roughly a foot apart, and start with your head. Bow it forward and roll it back as if you were looking up toward the ceiling. With your head arching back, follow this same movement with your shoulders, rolling through the chest and down to the hips.

The Hot Thrusts: Isolate only your hips and pump them forward quickly or to the beat of the record. (this record is from the soundtrack of the 1972 film “Follow Me”)

The Crazy Bottom Shake: Isolate your bottom and shake it fast by rapidly moving your hips and upper thighs.

When you master these moves, you can start to remove your clothes slowly.

Le Jour Du Seigneur

Maximilien – Le Jour Du Seigneur

Judgement Day is almost here and that means eternal  damnation for the likes of you and I. We should have listened earlier to this stern warning from Maximilen Hadefi, off his 1976 album realesed in Canada.

Ecoute Le Son Du Soleil (Instrumental)

Yannick Chevalier ‎– Ecoute Le Son Du Soleil (Instrumental)

In 1984 we didn’t have recordings from actual sounds of the sun, but what a lovely idea to imagine it sounding like an addicting disco instrumental.

Nuori Inka

Jarmo Juhani – Nuori inka

Cultural appropriation, Finland, 1981. Shameless stealing and intentional misinterpretation or intertextual homage? Nuori Inka means young Inka in Finnish. Inka is a name for 6215 females and less than 5 males according to the Population Register Center. In this case Nuori Inka is not a mere mortal human being, but a homeless ghost of a young Inca-being referring to the destruction of the Inca culture. Kudos to dj Mikko Mattlar for pointing out this one and dj Piitu for handing me a copy. The record wasn’t a huge success in 1981, but it’s been a pleasure to see the reactions on the dancefloors of 2017!

Are They Really Gonna… ?

Matterhorn Project – Are They Really Gonna… ?

As a kid I had a questionable privilege to watch numerous nuclear war documentaries at the prime time. A Generation experience with dramatic effects on how to view the world. I played a lot of peace and love themed records last weekend and had this one cued to slow things down, but the porter had to obey the rules and end the party in time. What a pity. I felt we could have easily danced for hours more.
