Miguel Campbell - Flight school (2012)

This gem is taken from the double album "Back in flight school" I would like to introduce with the next posts. The sound remembers a bit on that of "Imagination". It's modern and pretty funky and fat.

Aeroplane feat. Jamie Principle - In her eyes (Chopstick & Johnjon Remix) (2012)

This is another Aeroplane track that makes you happy :-)

BTW: Jamie Principle is already known since the mid-80s. Compare with his "Waiting on my angel" her in this blog.

And another thing: nice butt in this video.

Yello - Bostich (1981)

First released in 1981 it also came out as B-side of the 12inch "Lost again" in 1983. Such a great tune!

Yazoo - Goodbye 70's (1982)

One of the best Yazoo titles ever. It's featured on their first album "Upstairs at Eric's". Alison Moyet has a great voice.

Torrevado - Living in the shuttle (1985)

The first time I heard of this title was in the Spanish "Max Mix 3" from 1986. I loved it immediately but forgot it over the times. Last year I finally found the 1988 release with some different - but also fine - versions on a vinyl-fleemarket.

Imagination - Just an illusion (1982)

Classic tune which is the basic for some production of nowadays in my opinion - especially the funky synth-bassline. Listen and compare.

Harold Faltermeyer - Axel F. (1984)

Everybody knows that stroke of genius.

Harold Faltermeyer is a German guy from Munich. His career began in 1979, playing synthesizer on Donna Summers', "Bad Girls" album along with executive producer Giorgio Moroder.
Following his work with Laura Branigan on her 1984 album "Self Control", he produced soundtracks for the motion pictures "Beverly Hills Cop" and "Top Gun" and won Grammy Awards for each of them.
"Axel F", from Beverly Hills Cop, entered the US-charts at number 3, in 1985. The Pet Shop Boys had him produce their 1990 album, "Behaviour". (discogs)

I chose this original video because I also love this film - but sorry: the quality isn't that brilliant.

Candi Staton - Hallelujah anyway (Larse vocal) (2012)

The first appearance of Soul and Funk-diva Candi Staton was in 1969. This track seems to be an edit of an old original song but it was a brand new release in 2012 - and it's a huge one.

Philosophy of Sound - Fragile disco (2012)

This EP is breathtaking; it contains only outstanding tracks and remixes. The first one I would like to introduce is the main title of the EP. It's funky disco house shit.
