The Fashion - Future girl (1984)

Amazing and completely overseen italo gem - very much in demand, record collectors all over the world are looking for this great track. The instrumental on the B side rocks best.

Tantra - A Place Called Tarot (1982)

This here is one of the synth disco masterpieces from Celso Valli, one of the greatest electro-disco producers ever. Truly epic synth disco to love even though the vocals sound sort of cheesy today. This here is the rare Disconet Edit remix.

Richard Wahnfried - Time factory (1979)

Another end 70s trip into outer space. Discogs says: "Music between genius and nonsense". And they are so right. The sound of the music and of the vocals is so crazy that it is like genius and catches you; it will stay in your ears on your spacetrip.

Discothèque - Disco special (1979)

That's funky and cosmic disco shit. The video shows a release on "Unclassics#4" from the year 2005. Originally you can find the track on the album "Discothèque Party".

Richard Bone - Mambopolis (1983)

If you like strange electro synth pop music then that's right for you.

Rayko - White Russian (2008)

This Spanish guy from - I think - Madrid knows how to make it ... Massive bassline and a floating mood. Simply well done. The track is released as the first 12inch of his own label "Rare Wiri".

Anna - Systems breaking down (1982)

A very slomo piece of synth-pop with a nice voice.

Quartz - Chaos (1978)

It's taken from the album "Quartz". The track is kind of strange and sounds sometimes a bit chaotically but has a lot of nice elements in it you wouldn't await.

Starcluster - Smoke and mirrors (2008)

Starcluster is a German project by Kai Lüdeling and Roland Faber - also known as Roland Sebastian Faber. For this song they could get Marc Almond (Soft Cell) to sing the vocals. Sounds like in the good old 80s.

O.R.S. - Dream machine (1978)

O.R.S. = Orlando Riva Sound - whatever that should mean ...

Nice disco-track with a remarkable synth-bassline made in Germany. Like this a lot.

Passengers - Hot leather (1979)

A hot saturday-night-disco-fever gem. Originally from 1979 but also released several times in the following years in Canada the U.S. and the Netherlands.

AGE - Water suite (1984)

I think this is a pretty unknown and underrated Italo-track. It has some nice elements like a saxophon, a cello and more. It has been released on the "Sensation Records" label which has published some of the greatest classics.

Purple Flash - We can make it (1984)

Nice electronic disco gem with a very relaxed mood to dream to and a little touch of the 70s-disco-era.

Risqué - Burn it up (Mr. DJ) (1983)

Think this one is well known and doesn't need more explanations. Essential...

Hypnotic Samba - Stop-Watch (1984)

Remembers me on Hipnosis - but although a verrrrry good track. It's the B-side of "Hypnotic samba" that I've already posted here some months ago.

Antilles - You and me (2007)

Sounds like good old Italo - but it's really from 2007. The song is taken from the amazing album "Synthesize me" - the first of four albums in the same manner on the label "Radio Cosmos".

Bottin - Fondamente nove (2008)

Not only relaxing too but also cosmic and funky. Bottin is from Venice/Italy and makes wonderful music. This track is released on one record of the "Cosmic Balearic Beats" series.

Edgar Froese - Pinnacles (1982)

Something to relax for a change from the electronic corner.

Alden Tyrell - Voyagers end (2006)

NuItalo sounding like Cyber People. Great job by Mr. Tyrell!! And someone added a beautiful videoclip to the music.

Milkways - Galactic reaction (1978)

Let's fly through the French cosmos to the milky way. They had one 7", one 12" and one album which contains all their tracks.

Nemesy - I wanna dance (1984)

"... don't keep me waiting for you, baby!!! ..." Masterpiece with great synthwork. Love it!!

Sensitive - Driving (1984)

Back in my all time favourite genre. The track is written by Sergio Bonzanni who also was involved in productions for P. Lion and Scotch. It's a pity that his own productions are so underrated and only the real hardcore Italo nerds take notice of them. That is also a reason that the records are very hard to get and you must pay a lot of money for the originals.

Cristal - La nuit pour vous (1977)

I don't know why but I also like these great tunes from the late 70s as you see. This one is so cosmic, spacy and relaxing and the guitars remember me on Carlos Santana. BTW: produced by grandmaster Cerrone.

Binary - The meaning (1983)

Back to the 80s with this wave-influenced synthpop-monster. The third quarter of the record is kind of strange but the rest is simply great.

Charisma - Magnifique (1979)

Great disco tune that also has been released under the name "Magnifique - Magnifique". I like more the voiceless version. But this video is soooo original-cool-70s-rollerdisco-style that I couldn't help to post it.
