Die Unersättlichen

Various Artists – Die Unersättlichen

A false sequel to Hard Dixo.

The first half is dedicated to hard electronic basslines and French stompers, the other one slows down a bit and features some oddities and exotic curiosities.

The tracklisting follows: (more…)

Midnight


The Passengers – Midnight
A Passengers tune from 1981 when they were no longer involved with Celso Valli. Still, this remains quite effective.

Hare Krishna (Be-In)


Edmundo Ros – Hare Krishna (Be-In)
A loungey dance tune for your first beach party of the summer ( a vintage Gucci headscarf there, a psychedelic pair of flares here ), from 1969 when the musical “Hair” was hot. In London, it ran for nearly two thousand performances.

Spitfire


The Flying Tigers – Spitfire
Was it like someone saw an aeroplane and decided wow, my next dance record HAS to be all about flying? In any case, love the whooshing sounds and the whole track really works for me.

Cryin’ Wind


Tender Aggression – Cryin’ Wind
Moody German track from 1976. The image? Well, it’s got tender aggression and the word “wind” on it.

The Edwige Fenech Party Mix


Jussi Kantonen – Edwige Fenech Mix
Edwige jumped on the table in her fabulous sequined bell bottoms and matching top outfit and started to shake. For maximum effect I played some mutated space disco – from vinyls only of course – and this got the rest of the guests on their feet as well. Lead by Edwige her arms open wide, the dancers formed a line around the room: Rosalba Neri, Klaus Kinski, George Hilton, Gloria Guida, Anita Strindberg, Florinda Bolkan, Luc Merenda, Eva Robins, Udo Kier and quite a few others shimmied past me. More music: the one and only Jeannette. Everything became hazy. Was it all just a hallucination?

Pense pas et danse

Marie Chaptal – Pense pas et danse (1979)

No, the lady on the picture is not Marie Chaptal. On the record cover sleeve, Marie is jogging with her hooded sweater. I definitely prefer this picture.

Freak Out Music


R.P. Burman – Freak Out Music
Frank Sinatra – Night And Day (disco )
Two left field tracks: Freak Out Music from the 1973 soundtrack of “Heera Panna” and a very questionable 1977 version of “Night And Day”, sung by once legendary crooner and rumoured Goodfella (person closely connected to Mafia) Frank Sinatra himself.

Introducing: The Disco Doubles

A talented bunch of guys perfecting the Italo Disco sound for the new millenium. The band line-up remains a mystery, I only know that it’s one of Italocarlito’s collaborative side-projects. I still don’t understand why he didn’t show me their WIP before: these are quality tracks!

Check out their newest output:

Leila


Leila & Co – Leila
Quite a few oriental-themed tracks here recently and here’s yet another. Some sources insist this is from Turkey but apparently the country of origin is France.

Hokuto No Ken

From the OST of an old Japanese cartoon where a guy, looking like Bruce Lee, and dressed like Mad Max, makes people literally explode just by pointing his fingers on their bodies (!)

The album contains lots of tracks based on the same theme, with funky rhythms, and four-to-the-floor beats.

[Unknown] – Hokuto no Ken (1984?)

One of main and mightiest soviet propaganda song (1978)  is curiously laid on funky beat and contains heroic “spaghetti-esque” trumpet solo.

Sunset

Jean Gamet – Sunset (1981)

Clearly less disco than Danseur De Slow (indeed, there’s only this sharp 4×4 beat that could potentially make this track dancefloor-friendly)… but the synth pads are very nice, and typically early-80s.

The Spaced Out Disco Session – April 2011

This is the blog with the one and only message: “Vinyl kills MP3″ – and as you know this is our credo as well. Some time ago we had the honour to make an exclusive mix for this blog as a podcast. This was the mix being scheduled last Friday as our Spaced Out Disco Session April 2011. As usual it is recorded live only with our vinyl records – with one exception: the first track (it’s one of ours), because there isn’t available any vinyl.
