Mondgesicht

mondgesichtOrchester Ambros Seelos – Mondgesicht

Is there anything more beautiful than late August with these dark, warm and damp nights filled with tempting tobacco smoke. The great strange dream called summer is slowly fading away. As the overtly quoted On The Road phrase goes: “We were all delighted, we all realized we were leaving confusion and nonsense behind and performing our one and noble function of the time, move“.

Lola Martinez – Persigueme

Vamos a la discoteca con senorita Martinez, con los sintetizadors, con un ritmo mundial! A slightly slower version of the Amanda Lear classic has all the right noises. Big thanks to Arnie’s Love for the copy.

Octagon

onyxOnyx – Octagon

Der Alte was a childhood favorite for many drop-out teens like me. Mostly because there was nothing else available on Finnish television. Even thought I watched too many episodes, I can’t remember this cosmic moment from the episode “Kalt wie Diamant” (Germany, 1983).

Body Music

disco dancing 70sKen Elliot – Body Music

Great to hear that you’re feeling love sir. Just a simple reminder: Respect the limits. No obnoxious staring or unwanted touching. Avoiding classics is a must in order to survive, but sometimes an anthemic 12″ might be excused. Recorded here at -8. Still too fast?

The Original Bambis

The Original Bambis – Azteka

In Aztec culture music was performed by professional musicians and singers, who resided in the palace of the ruler, a place called the “House of the Cloud Serpent” (Mixcoacalli). While the court musicians performed often hundreds of people took part in formation dances, the line hustles of their day.

The temple and the court musicians used instruments made from wood and jaguar skins for the drums, gold and copper for bells, or marine shells for rattles and trumpets. Unfortunately we don’t have much information of what the melodies actually sounded like. Here however we have a spectacular interpretation from Germany by The Original Bambis. Behold: the exotic and majestic music of the Aztec people!
