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.

Casco Memorial Mix – tomorrow night

casco1

Great Salvatore Cusato passed away at the end of January. He was such a great pioneer in good music taste and also brought us lots of unforgettable productions under his influence.

Therefore we dedicate our Spaced Out Session tomorrow night to him – to Casco. It will be a more or less cheesy Italo set also with some rare records. We think that he would enjoy it if he could and hope that you’ll like it as well.

So don’t miss the session tomorrow at 20.00 UTC and lets commemorate an ingenious DJ and producer.

Gucko Gucko

Various Artists – Gucko Gucko 20110302

Vintage communist disco from Eastern Europe. It starts with regular (but twisted) disco, passes through electronic wtf territories, and finally ends with unashamedly cheesy italo disco and synthpop.

Yes, I know, the mixing is either atrocious or non-existent, but most tracks were severely warped. I honestly did my best. Excessive sweating, and astronomically huge amounts of swear words were involved in my failed attempt at beatmatching everything.

Piacere Sequence

rosalba1

Teo Usuelli – Piacere Sequence

An early eurodisco masterpiece repeating the words “sexually…sexually…again…again!” for several minutes, over a groovy bassline. What more can you ask for? The track comes from Silvio Amadio’s classic 1972 giallo “Alla Ricerca Del Piacere / Amuck”, starring the icy blond Barbara Bouchet and the curvaceous Rosalba Neri (in the picture).

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.
