Smiles - Pendulum (1983)

This is the italo electro disco medley version from Theme From Warriors (B. De Vorzon), Escape From N.Y. (John Carpenter) and Assault On Precinct 13 (John Carpenter) on the Zanza label. Awesome!

Supermax - It ain't easy (1979)

Ultracool electro/cosmic disco from the late 70s. The Austrian Kurt Hauenstein produced quite a few great albums and was part of the legendary "Sound of Munich" electronic disco scene. Play loud to get the groove!

An early Christmas present: 13 legendary mixes from The Robot Scientists

The Robot Scientists are preparing their Musica da Batticuore Mix Nr. 14. To get you glam robots warmed up for this, they decided to give you their mixes Nr. 1 to 13 again! All packed with essential Italo, Cosmic and Synth Disco classics, all mixed live with real vinyl records - a great chance, don't miss this, download periods are limited!

You can find all tracklists in their myspace-blog.


Sylvia Love - Instant Love (1979) & Cosmic Carousel (2009)

Salve, this here is a great space disco track from Sylvia Love (I prefer the DUB version though). She released a new track recently, see below, "Cosmic Carousel" - pretty pumping "Space-Electro-Disco" - not bad, but not a classic either, but I post it here to show: the electro-disco revival is in full effect. Another proof: I just saw Casco - Cybernetic Love sell for 90 Euros on ebay. It always was 50, 60 - this shows that the nerds finally realise which the really good tracks are...;).

Den Harrow - A taste of love (1983)

I really have to confess that live performances of Italo Disco artists were once in a while not only cheesy, but simply inacceptable. Like this one. But I love the song. And this live TV appearance is pretty funny, too. This is why I selected it. Anyway, for me, this is one of the top Den Harrow tracks and a top CSD outfit for straight men who want to take the plunge. Go for it!

Thanya - Freedom (1982)

Excellent piece of italo electro disco from the guys behind Trilogy who also did "Not love". This here is the classic instrumental version, highly minimalistic and pretty robot-groovy. The vocal version is nice, too, it has a little bit more synths in it, but I couldn't find it on Youtube. Imagine you are a 3-feet-tall mini robot, then dance to this with your robot friends, it is fun! ;)
