Toro part 2


Lolita Ladies – Toro pt 2
Belgium 1976. This is probably the best of the many versions of this bullfight tune. The one by Black Toros is not bad either.

Ocho Rios


Paul Jabara – Ocho Rios
Ocho Rios Jamaica is where Mama De La Noche, a woman of the night, finally found the man she had been searching for all over the world. This segment illustrates the seduction and the conquest, with legendary Warhol superstar Pat Ast in the role of Mama De la Noche and Paul Jabara playing The Negro. Among the chorus girls, Donna Summer.
After the brief encounter, Mama found herself pregnant and subsequently gave birth to eight female babies. The offspring was immediately stolen due to a devious plan, and the girls scattered into every direction. Eighteen years later, Mama starts looking for Diana (delicious), Donna (divine), Dolly (delivers), Doris (driven), Diva DeBronx (delinquent), Delilah (delovely), Dolores (demented) and Darlene (desperate), all played by Paul Jabara. There is a happy ending.
In the picture, Pat with punk rocker Wendy O. Williams in Tom DeSimone’s WIP (women in prison) classic Reform School Girls (1986).

Passaporto Per La Follia

This track rocks my world.

Nadia Cassini – Passaporto Per La Follia

Sorry, just a YouTube link this time, I’m still actively looking for a second hand copy of the record.

Thanks to Spaziale (Scott Hesselink) for kindly unveiling the mystery – and Discotrooper for the MP3.

Margot Thomas – I’ll Set You Free
A Turn On To Love-style instrumental passage from fraulein Margot’s 1979 lp. We need much, much more music like this, as well as situations like presented in the image above.

Calderon


Juan Carlos Calderon – El Quijote
Juan Carlos Calderon – Resaca
Two masterful examples of euro sound made in Spain in 1975 while Franco was apparently still alive – he died late in the year. El Quijote is soft porn disco personified, reeking of excess aftershave like few other tracks in recorded history. Resaca is jazzier and more sophisticated yet throbs with sinful imagery. Close your eyes and you can see leering older guys offering nubile girls alcohol and illegal cigarettes in a Torremolinos night club. Yes, look – now the little sluts are dancing wildly, squirming out of their bodyhugging maxi coats!

Back From Flea Market soon

I’ll play live some of the records I’ve very recently bought, live on the webradio, Wednesday July 20, 8pm UTC. It will either be some fierce French Disco Funk, Post Disco (aka new wave bands playing disco), or maybe even Electronic and Space Disco only.

I’ll also update the webradio database with more than 50 new tracks later this week (as soon as I could rip everything), it includes a bit of everything as usual: cosmic, space, italo, and vanilla disco. And of course, still no Boney M or Abba on sight, just the good ones.

Collaborative webradio: more content, more features, more fun

Our radio station is aging a bit, that’s why we’re soon going to switch to a state-of-the-art platform with more features and more content.

Honestly, I’m quite proud of this new baby, it will resolve all the problems we are currently facing with our old system. Collaborators will be able to easily broadcast what they want, how they want, remotely, and any time. And, you, listeners will be given all the features you ever wanted: track requests, submit tracks for airplay, cover arts, votes, ratings, precise dynamic schedules, etc. You name it, you’ll have it.

Exciting.

But it’s still not ready for prime-time, yet. I’m looking for collaborators and contributors who know their way in Java to help me finalize a few things. Or just join up if you want to add your own features if you like.

N.B. Hey, of course, you can use this platform for your own webradios, it’s free for everyone!

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
Bernard Estardy – Red Wave
LEB Harmony – Discorgan
Okko Bekker – Ganges Delta
Herbie Mann – Kidnappin’ Lover
a bit off the Orfeo Negro ost
As Freneticas – Dancin’ Days
Reverberi – Bahia
Bonnie St. Claire – Don’t Let Them Stop The Music
Denise McCann – Computer Breakdown

Quand tu danses

Micky Milan – Quand Tu Danses (Y’a Tout Qui Bouge, Qui Balance !…) (1982)

This one was written by François Feldman, a skinny white guy who used to produce awesome electronic funk in the early 80s and then, for unknown reasons, only utter pop garbage at the end of the decade.
