Freak Electrique - Symphonie electrique (Short) (2005)

This is one of Freak Electrique's masterpieces in epic NuItalo-electronic music. The short version which is featured here is "only" about seven and a half minute long but on the A-Side of the 12inch you can find the long version with huge 16:30 min. A really must have!

I've to show you again that I'm also a huge fan of the Oldschool Electro gems :-)

Ami Marie - Spiel mit mir (1981)

People Like Us - Midnight lover (Remix) (1986)

HiNRG for your Sunday. Let your arms and legs fly!

Automat - (The) rise, (the) advance, (the) genus (1978)

I guess everyone who's in this kind of music knows this masterpiece from 1978 which is definitely out of this world and ahead of its time back then. The video shows the full length version! ... and if you like it you'll also like "The Robot Scientists' Rise of the Gen(i)us Remix".

Sally Shapiro - I know (2006)

This one has been released on the album "Disco romance" together with "I'll be by your side" and some others more. It's more upspeeded but although has a romantic touch because of the voice of Sally Shapiro that remembers at Valerie Dore.

Sally Shapiro - I'll be by your side (2006)

The project of Sally Shapiro also includes the Swedish composer and producer Johan Agebjörn. Both are living in Gothenborg and are heavily influenced by the real Italo Disco from the 80s. Real great stuff.

The Jonzun Crew - We are The Jonzun Crew (1983)

Sorry but I can't help to post some more oldschool electro shit. I find that soooo cool!!!

Sébastien Léger - Seems so far (2001)

The French DJ and producer joins modern clubhouse music with the real disco from the 70s and adds a voice which sounds like Mickey Mouse would be singing. Strange but cool idea.

Mount Sims - How we do (2003)

US based producer Matthew sims created an electro touched vocal track which remembers me on the analogue times many years ago.
