Something Is Burning

It’s not… well, mind-blowing in any way; but it surely grooves.

J.L. De Tiviera & G. Gesina – Something Is Burning (197?)

Tommy Cooper & Supersound Crew


Tommy Cooper And The Supersound Crew – Theme From Airport 75
A Star-studded cast trapped in a plunging airplane… And only a death-defying rescue mission can save them! This superior cover version of the 1974 film theme lures you in with extremely sleazy synths, and fasten your seatbelts for the break.

Housewarming party music given to potentially interested new residents? Soundtrack to a sequel of a massively popular documentary? Just your regular boogie tracks sold with images of buildings as opposed to semi-naked women? Whatever these are they have a certain je ne sais quoi if u ask me.

Sources of Power Edit

It was relatively tedious but I’ve finally managed to extend my previous very short edit and turn all those various tiny snippets into one 8-minute-long monster edit. Additional production kept to the bare minimum. Enjoy.

Moonraker


Shirley Bassey – Moonraker (instr&vocal)
It’s the Pride Week here, and I’ll be spinning at the main gala on Saturday night http://helsinkipride.fi/index.php?id=15. There’ll be diamond hard electronic cuts, “Safari Of Love” by Miro, lots of midtempo euro stuff with violins and moaning girls plus soundtracks like this epic 1977 Diva thing that turns into a disco glamourama half way thru. All you Flaming Creatures, start choreographing the grand entrance.

Quando Caliente El Sol


Esmeralda – Quando Caliente El Sol
Red Face – Stay Where The Music Is
The 1st track is from 1976 and can be found on a couple of French compliation lps like “Disco Sound Orchestral”. The 2nd came out a year later. Both will take you to the beach. So, enough of this rain – give us a long hot breeze, wet sand, mysterious semi-tropical fauna and bacchanalian after hours. Oh, weather report says it’ll be +29 by Wednesday. All right, then.

Kahlua


Percy Faith – Kahlua
Dj Anssi called and said the Porsche is here now and he could take me for a ride. So off we went, gliding along the Helsinki seashore in this gleaming dream machine, past the sidewalk cafes, making heads turn and jaws drop. As the music played and the powerful machine purred beneath my legs I imagined I was George Lazenby in In Her Majesty’s Secret Service, the best ever Bond film. So, this sleek sexy go-go track is for you, Porsche, my unobtainable object of desire.

Fantasy Girl


Stephen Schlaks – Fantasy Girl
Dancing Blue
Dance With Me
Bobby Solo – Love Is Burning
3 madly arranged tracks from an Italian mor instrumentalist. This stuff kicks off where most disco tunes reach their peak, rising higher and higher into unhinged overdrive. Fantasy Girl needs to be heard from the full 12″ version, not the album one.
Bobby “Una Lacrima Sul Viso” Solo gets a slower groove going with Love is Burning, with similarly ott results.

Vracho Vracho


Olympic Union And The Athenians – Vracho Vracho
Olympic Union And The Athenians – Dirlada
What is this compulsion for music from imaginary package holiday destinations, all made at Musikland Studios of Munchen? I cannot promise to stop this but at least my next post will be a more sensible one.

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.
