A couple from Max


Max Berlin’s – Dance For My
Elle Et Moi
Yes, it does say “Dance For My” and not “Dance For Me” on the sticker. “Elle Et Moi” is a dj Hell fave.

Great Battle

Everyone saw classic rasta-movie “Rockers” or, at least, this snippet with a battle between Soul Music and Roots Rock Reggae:

A name of the winning song isn’t much interesting for visitors of this blog (just in case, this is The Jays and  Ranking Trevor’s “Queen Majesty”).

Second place is taken by acid-disco track (in style of Horse Meat Disco) “Get On Up (Get On Down)” (1978) of Roundtree:

Hot Glass


Hot Glass – C’est L’Amour
The singer sounds like he’s wearing a flashy three-piece suit and has his hair laquered in layers like Claude Francois. Still, this track flows quite effortlessly in a posh Costandinos kind of fashion. I don’t slip a lot of this kind of sound into the mix but maybe tomorrow night at the terrace of the MBar in Helsinki, why not.

Ganges Delta


Okko Bekker – Ganges Delta
From the 1971 German album Sitar & Electronics, essential in dissolving perceptual boundaries to explore your body/mind consciousness and nurturing an atmosphere where authentic spiritual communication and levitation becomes possible. Before dancing to Okko all day long take a ritual sunrise bath, preferably in the holy waters of river Ganga.

Dancing


Paolo Conte – Dancing
Rita & L’Anonima Ragazzi – Presto (People Are People)
A leftfield entry from Italy, pitched all the way down. Borderline stuff but I’ve found it works on the floor.
The 2nd cut is another one that may make you go hmmm…is it a schlager or something else? The singer is Rita Pavone, a big favourite among the mor crowds during the 60’s.

Photochrome

I had spotted this little gem in a SpAceLex’s DJ set, but I couldn’t find it anywhere for sale… until I recently discovered that it had been bootlegged by Amplified Orchestra.

So here’s the full length vocal version (over 7 min. long):

Cento – Photochrome (Part 1) (Amplified Orchestra Bootleg)

The instrumental track should be uploaded to the webradio very soon.

Lyda Zamora

Monserate feat. Lyda Zamora – When The Sun Goes Down
The brassy, full-bodied Lyda Zamora is a national institution in Colombia. She got further immortalized by having her hit Ye-Ye played during the Uma Thurman & John Travolta dance scene in Tarantino’s Pulp Fiction. In addition to the ye-ye’s, sassy cumbias and vaguely rhythmic schlagers she also had a eurodisco album out in Germany in 1978. The cream cut When The Sun Goes Down is a long fab medley of latin tunes bound together with the central melody heard in the clip.

The sleeve presents a definitive exploration of the eurodisco aesthetic with Darioargentoesque colour cordination. Grab the thing and race past the finishing line in a slurge of design appreciation.

Od Avinu Hai


Ricki Gal – Od Avinu Hai
Israel 1978. The lyrics are apparently of the religious/militaristic kind but the playing is hard and somehow, the track works.

Zoom mix

 

Jussi Kantonen – Zoom Mix

Here’s the two great cuts from the 2nd Zoom album, mixed in and out of other tunes. No theme as such but the general feel seems again to evoke scenes of flying to distant destinations.

Pierre Porte – Intro
Nicky Bulldog – Dog Power Song
Performance – Hong Kong Connection
Zoom – Delta Flight
Seeds of The Earth – Planting Seeds
Andre Gagnon – Wow
Steve Nicholas – American Symphony
Zoom – Flying High
City – Bulgarien Rock
Marian Stockley – Give Me Love
Space Factory – E.D.U.A.L.C. 2001 Odyssey
Action – Number One
Countdown – Raptus
Mandy B Jones – 1 2 3 4
Earl Venus & Eternity – Time Tunnel

Discomedia

Try hard to ignore the out-of-place vocals, and rather focus on the background music. It was composed by part of the Voyage band and Roland Romanelli. On the record it’s written that this instrumental is based on a track called “Love Tonight”. I’d love to know more about this mysterious tune. Anyone?

Croque-moi tout de suite

Don’t judge, don’t hate. It’s a bit blend and light-hearted, but I’ve got a thing for this tune though, I really don’t know why. Apparently it’s a remake but I don’t know the original.
