Apiento & Co - She walks (Pete Herbert Remix)

Let the summer come in with some Cosmic and Space Beachclub feeling. I love the piano parts in this track. It's amazing.

Depeche Mode - Further excerpts from: my secret garden (1982)

Everybody knows the great tunes from Depeche Mode. But this treasure in electronic synth-pop is hidden on the B-side of the 12inch "Leave in silence". Think this is also kind of great.

Man Parrish - Heatstroke (1982)

Electro Hiphop with cool vocoder - absolutely classic tune.

Patrick Cowley - Mind warp (The album) (1982)

Today I wanna make a tribute to one of the greatest pioneers of Hi-NRG and electronic dance music. Patrick Cowley was born in Buffalo, New York in 1950 and died too early in 1982.

Here are my favourite tracks from his last - and in my opinion his best - album which shows his genius:

Mr. Pauli and David Vunk - Zanzibar express (2010)

... and to make the EP complete here's the third featured track. Sorry for the raw sound qualitiy.

Mr. Pauli and David Vunk - Italian dreams (instr.) (2010)

Also from the "Laserlords"-EP.

Mr. Pauli and David Vunk - Robo dance (2010)

These "crazy" Dutchmen :-)
Last year they came out with the EP "We are the laserlords" on David Vunk's "Moustache Records" - and it sounds in fact like a mixture between Miami Vice soundtrack and a laser battle in outer space.

Gino Felino - Thank you for this world (2010)

This is the second side of the EP which also features "Spend the night" I've already posted. It starts up with a warped sample of Miko Mission's "How old are you". Very nicely done.

Electrick Dragon - 3rd plan (2010)

This is the second track from the "Electrick Dragon EP" from which is also "Italian inspiration" (that was the last post).

Electrick Dragon - Italian inspiration (2010)

This is another massive NuItalo track from our Dutch friends. The artist's real name is Rick van Breugel and he is a good friend from the "Moustache Records" owner David Vunk.

Roland Sebastian Faber - Löffelkinder (2010)

A very impressive track from the "Gropiusstadt EP". The sound has been created in Germany and came out on the wonderful "AUBE"-label from Düsseldorf/Germany which is run by Michael Künzer.

Giorgio Moroder - Utopia (1977)

This track is also a masterpiece and featured on the same album as "From here to eternity".

Giorgio Moroder - From here to eternity (1977)

Many posts before I showed you a cover version of this essential gem from our godfather of eletronic synthesizer sound. But now it's time for the original!

Mirage - Mirage in the space (1983)

The year of the release is supposed to be 1983 - it's not registered, neither on the sleeve nor on the label. It's a pretty obscure gem and the cover shows the DJ desk of the Mirage discotheque in Firenze.

Kraftwerk - Die Roboter (1978)

No words necessary!!!

Kraftwerk - Metropolis (1978)

One basic of today's electro based music is definitely the German group "Kraftwerk". Metropolis is taken from their album "Die Mensch-Maschine" or "The man machine". They were so far ahead of their time - amazing.

Fun Fun - Living in Japan (1985)

Cult project "Fun Fun" brought us some essential Italo hits. This is one of them.
BTW: the cast of "Fun Fun" has changed many times. In the beginning Spagna also was in this project before she started her own solo career.

Marzio Dance - You can do it (1984)

Back to the real Italo era. Nothing's better ...

Classic gem by the legendary Marzio Dance who was the resident DJ of the disco "Xenon" in Firenze. I personally prefer the instrumental version. here you can see a live performance from the master himself at "Xenon".

Jackpot - Ragazza (In Flagranti Remix) (2009)

Stomping and pumping - let's get on the floor!!!

Jackpot - Night flight (2009)

This track is also from 2009 - OMG so much 2009 in my last posts; it has to be a good year for "our" music. Taken from "Rvng Of The Nrds Vol. 9".

Codebreaker - Follow me (The Outrunners Remix) (2009)

... and this remix is for the dancefloor. It's mixed by the French duo Pierre de la Touche and Stephen Falken who are known for their driving basslines and for spheric synths which bring a kind of lightness into their music.

Codebreaker - Follow me (2009)

Cool sounding mixture between Disco and Deephouse with an also cool vocoder voice.

Amplified Orchestra - Satellites are spinning (2007)

The man behind this edit and bootleg project is Gert-Jan Bijl from the Netherlands. Always these Dutch-men ... He is a master in re-edit and pump up old underground Disco, Space, Cosmic and Italo records. They all came out under other track names and you are always thinking about the originals - and mostly you can not remember their real names.

This one here is an edit of, of ... what???

Rayko - Spaceship crash (2009)

This is another one for the beachclub.
