Fight Is Going On Again

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.

Promises Promises Huh


String Machine – Promises Promises Huh
Germany 1976. The track has nothing to do with the sixties Jayne Mansfield film of course. Still, had Jayne survived her car crash instead of getting spectacularily decapitated along with her poodle, this is the kind of fluffy pink tune she would have no doubt performed during the 70’s.

Latest TRS Re-Edits of Synth-Disco-Classics

These two classics were absolutely worth to be cleaned up and re-edited:

Secession – Touch (The Robot Scientists Dub Cut):

The 12inch contains the Part 3 and the Part 4 of this synth-monster. We combined the best elements of these two parts and created an instrumental version:

[soundcloud width=”100%” height=”81″ params=”” url=”http://api.soundcloud.com/tracks/12276591″]

 

Cerrone – Freak connection (The Robot Scientists Freaks in Space Edit):

This is our homage to the Parisian Jean-Marc Cerrone, one of the godfathers of synth-disco. His outstanding “Freak Connection” was originally released in 1983 on Malligator where he just released new remixes of his classic “Supernature”. The 7 inch and the epic 9:18 12 inch versions of “Freak Connection” are medleys of the cosmic-synth-disco-boogie-ish instrumental “Freak Connection” and the funky vocal “Standing In The Shadows Of Love”. As lovers of spaced out, slowly meandering synth basslines and laid back nu-disco grooves, we created the first real “Freak Connection” track. We remodeled the original medley into a 6:57 retro-sci-fi-trip for all the disco freaks and hipster bars on planet Earth.

Mustafa – Huana Mali He

Maserati Ghibli Spider

One of my most popular obscure records, as well as another musical evidence that 1977 was the greatest year for disco in any country, Italy included.
A great Alberto Mandolesi-Giuseppe Cassia production, that sits on the flipside of the 7″: oriental mind-blowing mesmerizing erotic madness.
Perfect material to let anyone dance to the sickest belly dance ever……….

Timothy e Luca – Due

delittobluegay

Obscure italian disco masterpiece or total crap that needs to be forgotten as soon as possible? Either way, this 1979 gay-themed track is all about one of the two guys getting horny listening how the other one cheated on him, I’m pretty sure it needs no translation whatsoever. For sure, this is strictly for sleaze experts only.

Yury Chernavsky “Hello, Bananan Boy!” (How_Beezar Instrumental Re-Edit)

Here’s maestro Yury Chernavsky again. You might hear his earlier groovy disco classic “Discs Are Circling (How_Beezar Re-Edit)” performed by Krasny Maki band.

3 years later, in 1983 Chernavsky recorded his 1st solo album “Banana’s Islands” which never has been officially released.  In 1987, at the height of the Perestroyka, track “Hello, Bananan Boy” was included in film “ASSA” OST. This film is the cult for every kid grown up in 80s in USSR. I, for example, decided to become a musician right away after the final credits of the film.

“Hello, Bananan Boy” illustrates Disco-Not-Disco influence on indie dance enthusiasts in Soviet Union: bass, drums, infectious guitar riff and freaky vocal with absurd lyrics about little boy Bananan living in a telephone receiver.

In this How_Beezar Instrumental Re-Edit words are cut out, and we can delight with pure rhythm and amazing guitar riff.
