Dirty Pair (outro)



This speaks for itself. I wish I was cruising this highway right now.

Montevideo - Horses


Montevideo is an outfit out of Belgium that was recently signed to EMI Belgium. Recorded, engineered and produced by Joakim, Horses has a great vintage 80s vibe reminiscent of Sparks. Check out their Soundcloud page for a few remixes. I am partial to the instrumental myself.

Voyager - Lovers


Ok, this came in just minutes ago but I had to get it up right away. The vocals are in the pocket and the sound is big. The thick accents definitely add to the authenticity and make this one a perfect fit for a feature on Italobot. I'm partial to the Lamet Remix but you can here them all on their Soundcloud page here. Download the album here.

Fab Mayday vs San Proper - Do We Have a Future


Here is a good Italo working of some soulful disco boogie from the folks at Italo Italians. Nothing like a steady arpeggiated rhythm and soul samples to keep a good groove. I am partial to the second version they have uploaded, but I'm a sucker for the thoughtful sound. Check it all out on soundcloud here.

"Xtro" by Toque


I was delighted when I found this one in my email this morning. These tracks are clearing the cobwebs from my wine addled brain and got me blowing the dust off of this blog feed. "Xtro" from Girlfriend Records is full of weekend goodness and Toque faithfully honors early house, boogie, and electro but still remains relevant and modern. The production is crisp, bright and very danceble. Its rare that I feel I can give a glowing recommendation to all the songs on an EP release but these are artfully done. The title track is postured for more playtime and a larger audience but "Kenny G" and the Xtro (edit) really got me perked. Peep it.

Kroma - Sexy Films


In the life of a lover there are some nights you face rejection. And sometimes its because of those sexy films you have been watching. Kroma's Sexy Films perfectly captures that bedroom banter.

You often try to make me upside down
I know you really get pleased

But when I think to your amusing rounds

I tell you ha ha honey
go to sleep

I tell you
Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha
Go to Sleep

Explications
Intimations of affection
Complication

Nini Raviolette - Suis-Je Normale


Nini Raviolette's "Suis-Je Normale" is mischievous, dark and mysterious. The simple drone of a synthesizer pad and percussive, pizzicato blips are all that accompany Nini's bedroom harmonies in this otherwise drumless serenade. The track seems to reside inside an ice box its so chilly.

O'Gar - Playback Fantasy



There is something truly magical about this track. The arpeggio and drums work together effortlessly to make dancing irresistible. O'Gar's casual vocals are cool and relaxed and the subtle chord changes give the song a feeling of the great expanse. Simple surprises in here with drum pattern changes and the radio deejay interlude bring you back to the era. Check out the video and also how I featured it in podcast 10. Listen past the break to hear how he re-sings the chorus, a reminder of the days before protools choruses.
