Doctor's Cat - Gee wiz (1984)

Finally again another legendary Martinelli/Gatto/Zanini production. Love it!

Glass Candy - The Chameleon (2007)

Minimalistic electronic slomo disco production by Johnny Jewel with a lascivious voice. Well done track released on "Italians do it better" and also used in "Musica da Batticuore Vol. 1" by The Robot Scientists.

Alden Tyrell ft. Fred Ventura - Memories (2008)

Old Italo legend meets NuItalo hero with a wonderful melancholic song. Remembers me on the good old times back in the 80s.

Panorama - War in love (instrumental) (1985)

Some time ago I introduced the vocal version of this song. Now I finally found the instrumental version I love so much. Full of memories.

Cosmic Metal Mother - I think ... (2007)

Another downtempo electro disco track that makes you floating all over. Pretty epic.

Fake - New art (1984)

Very nice slomo gem to dream. There's an instrumental version of this song available on the B-side of the 12inch "Right" which is featured as the first track in "The Robot Scientists" very first mix of their legendary series "Musica da Batticuore".

Afrika Bambaataa & Soulsonic Force – Planet rock (instr.) (1982)

More electro hiphop classics - maybe that this style doesn't really fit to the blog but it was part of the biggest music era ever - the 80s - and I like it nearly as much as Italo so I think it's also worth to be mentioned within here.

Grandmaster Flash & The Furious Five - White lines (1983)

No words necessary ...

Grandmaster Flash & The Furious Five - The message (1982)

... and because I'm in the old school electro mood at the moment here comes an absolutly classic everybody knows.

DMX Krew - That wild & freaky robot funk (2011)

WOOOOOW!!! Old school electro vocoder funk like 25 years ago. Love this so much. I also like the A-side of this 7inch called "Funky dancer" which I couldn't find on youtube yet.

Pete Herbert & Golden Fleece - Ivory waves (2011)

This is a mixture between late 80s/early 90s piano house sound and a spacefly to the stars. Enjoy!

Gabe Catanzaro - Polyphonic (2010)

To make the "Long long way from home" EP complete I'm gonna present you the last of its five tracks. This one also sound pretty retro-italo like.

Gabe Catanzaro - The metal man (2010)

This song shows that Gabe Catanzaro not only can play Italo but also light sounding cosmic tunes.

Gabe Catanzaro - Never let me go (2010)

To go on with the formerly mentioned EP here is the next track of this retro italo sounding release:

Gabe Catanzaro - Two for the night (2010)

This is another beautiful NuItalo track from the "Long long way home"-EP.

Gabe Catanzaro - Monster in the dark (2010)

The EP "Long long way from home" came out first as a digital release in 2010 and then in 2011 as a 12inch. This song is one of the track of this EP and represents a typical massive Italo bassline and vocals by Tobias Bernstrup.
