There is not much to say after a four year hiatus, or is there? Are blogs still a thing? Who knows? What I do know is that this is a great way to continue where we left off. I hope you enjoy this journey through a crazy fun time! Maybe in a few years I will make another one, or maybe sooner.

Looking forward to 2011 I hope to get more of these mixes out there This one is a fun trip through a few different sounds, grooves, and moods. The weather finally started taking a turn around in my part of the world but I still managed to wring out some soggy chilled tracks for this mix. Put on a sweater and don't catch a cold.

If you haven't heard of Altair Nouveau its time to get acquainted. His brand of music is a blend of space disco, fusion and the fantastic. You can get a taste of his new EP Space Fortress with his single Sorcerer which has a very live feel and soaring synthesizer lines. He has been a resident of the West Coast of the U.S. for a while now but he informed me that he is about to grace the Eastern Seaboard in a few weeks with a move to New York City. San Francisco will be sad to see him go but he was gracious enough to allow me to stream this mix he did last fall as part of the podcast.

I got a few fun tracks together for you, just in time for New Years Eve! I'm heading to the Salty Seahorse to have some fun and erase parts of the last decade that I would rather not remember. But there is a lot to celebrate and I hope everyone has a healthy and happy celebration. See you in 2010!

Sorry for the delay in getting this one out. But I hope it is worth the wait. Some fun tracks on here some of them have been featured recently but I had to get them down for those of my friends too lazy to check in regularly. Maybe it will help cure those Monday blues.

I Guess You Will Do (instrumental) - The Happy Boys
The Happy Boys have been a longtime creative pursuit of mine. I have resisted the urge until now to use Italobot to showcase some of my own work as I don't exactly want to use the blog as a tool of megalomania. But this is a track that I think fans of Italo might enjoy.
"I Guess You Will Do" is the last track we recorded for the album after I moved back to San Francisco from New York. Its an homage to Giorgio Moroder's work in the 80s. I have included the instrumental as a download but if you are intrigued to here more of the Happy Boys music you can download the album "Big Hit" on iTunes or CDBaby.
A few years ago we did some music videos one in Los Angeles and one in New York. They were a lot of fun to film and we met some wonderful people in the process. Below you may enjoy our song "La Dolce Vita" and my solo effort as Giani Velcreaux singing "All I Want to Know."
