DJ Gio MC 505 Tierspruch (2014)

This is the second track from the "Riviera Disco Vol. 1". Kind of strange but somehow nice - though.

Wednesday, December 3, 2014

Expansives - Life with you (1982)

One of the essential projects of Franco Rago, Gigi Farina and Xenia Monneret. Unfortunately the sound quality of the 12inch isn't pretty flat. But anyway: ITALO!!!

Dilemma - Il buffone (2014)

The Dutch label "Bordello A Parigi" spoils us again and again with marvelous releases. Also the "Riviera Disco Vol. 1" is such a release. Here is one of the tracks of this 12inch:

Nova - You can do it (Dance Mix) (1985)

Sounds in a similar manner like Shannon and the like. Discovered my copy in the springtime in a record store in Rotterdam.

Antoni Maiovvi - Trauma (2014)

Horror soundtrack with electro breakbeats - and a sexy videoclip. Somehow kind of strange and obscure.

Tuesday, November 18, 2014

Fred Ventura - The years (go by) (1985)

Federico Di Bonaventura is still in business today and brings out new Italo tracks regularly. "The years (go by)" maybe is the track which makes him well known back in the 80s. Like it a lot.

Digital Emotion - Humanity (1984)

The title of this piece from the Dutch producing team Adam & Fleisner counts more than ever in these days.

Tuesday, November 4, 2014

Camaro's Gang - Move a little closer (1983)

Even if the "Drive Version" on the B-side is better in my opinion here is the original video of the vocal side - cool stuff.

Saturday, November 1, 2014

Angie Care - Your mind (1984)

After a little break we are back again with this pure Valerie DoreTalo track. Listen and dream!

Friday, October 17, 2014

"Psycho"-dancefloor filler. Rude strikes back with this vocoder track full of power and energy.

Aimes - On holiday (2014)

While listening to this you really can imagine to be still on holiday. I wished I would ...

Thursday, September 4, 2014

PEZ - Buddha's watching (2012)

Who doesn't know Human League's hit "Being boiled" from 1978?
This here is a well done edit with a lot of power by using a fat and rolling bass line.

Friday, August 29, 2014

Modem - Valerie (1984)

Modem is one of Amin Peck's alter egos. Heavy synths here as usual.
This is the B-side of the 12inch "Your fun".

Atelier Folie - Leave me alone ('Lectric Workers Dub Rework) (2013)

Atelier Folie - Leave me alone (1985/2013)

This is a back then never released Italo-Wave hit from 1985. We all know "No rhyme, no reason" but this one is also a bomb. It has been finally released last year with some outstanding remixes I'll introduce next.

Goblin - Tenebre (1982)

Goblin is an Italian project of Claudio Simonetti, Fabio Pignatelli and Massimo Morante. They are famous for their soundtrack of several horror movies back in time. This here is one of that tracks.

Wanexa - The man from colours (1982)

Even the remastered release from 2009 on the "I.D.L. 007" doesn't sound really good - but this track is huge though.

Steely Chuck McDonald - Dream (instrumental) (1982)

Classic gem from '82. Unfortunately we miss the bass in the first video - but I wanted to post first the instrumental version.

Here comes the vocal - with more bass:

Tuesday, May 13, 2014

Big Ben Tribe - Tarzan (1984)

Originally mega rare 12inch from 1984; now reissued and remastered available for a fair price. This here is the instrumental version. The vocal is called "Tarzan loves the summernights" and is even more cheesy than this without vocals.

Black Devil - "H" friend (1978)

After not being really successful with his album "Disco Club" Bernard Fevre is touring nowadays with his old gems. I personally saw him recently at an after work party in Luxemburg. Really cool man.

It looked like the performance in this video:

Indochine - Leila (1982)

This is the second bomb from the album "L'aventurier". The sound quality is pretty poor because it is obviously a live cut.

Saturday, January 25, 2014

Indochine - L'aventurier (1982)

This is quite no Italo but a New Wave bomb from France. If you are able to understand French you should watch the video and read the vocals.

RIS - Love 'n' music (1983)

Legendary Tony Carrasco production.

... and for all those who prefer the instrumental version:

Glass Candy - Etheric device (2007)

This song is also taken from "B/E/A/T/B/O/X" which is nearly a classic now. Cool sounds and this lascivious voice. Great!
