The second release of Disco Segreta – catalogue number DS M 002 – is titled “Stranamore” and comes after the successful release of the first label imprint “Andromeda”, already turned into an underground disco classic. Sung in italian by mysterious singer Brina, “Stranamore” and “Per Te” are two italo-disco tracks written in the ’80s by Mario Baldoni (aka Miro) of the “Safari of Love” fame: a teenage girl shares her heartbreak, then it’s just the instant magic of italo, italian language and those synthesizers, in a freeze-frame taking back to that spring of 1984 with the car windows open, listening to the radio, waiting for summer to arrive.
The second release of No More Pop features an obscure sideproject of the famous dutch minimal synth group “Ensemble Pittoresque”. Originally released on a promo compilation for local bands in 1984 called “De Wassenaarse Slag”, the single “A Distant Dance” is a truly unique journey into dutch synth wave. The composer and producer Ton Willekes and Paulus Wieland teamed up with Marga Visser for the vocals for their last creation before the final end of Ensemble Pittoresque. Besides the original version the record also features a special rework of the original Ensemble Pittoresque Demo of “A Distant Dance”, produced by Murphy Jax. On the remix front, the silvery Celina S resang the vocals for both Keen’s and Flemming Dalum’s remixes, which are shining due to their unique , dreamy and melancholic mood.
Produced in June 1985, under the lead of Panagiotis Papachatzis, the rare LP “Just A Dream” featured several italo disco stylistic songs and became legend for its unique touch and excellent synth lines. Now No More Pop teamed up with the former band lead P. Papachatzis to make it possible to officially rerelease their hit single “Emotions”. This release features also remixes by Flemming Dalum, Steen Gjerulff and Murphy Jax.
When “Walking in the Night” by Giusy Dej was first discovered as an incomplete track on the rare ‘A Touch of Class’ compilation, many italo fans were really surprised when it was later found as a single. And that the b-side “Follow Me” was also great! Both tracks represent the perfect mix of dark italo-disco and minimal-synth elements with raw lo-fi production. Without a doubt one of the most cult and sought-after discoveries in recent years. Flemming Dalum and Hysteric on remix duties.
A bona fide Italo classic that reminds us why the genre remains as influential and fun to play with; playful lyrics, nagging hooks and forward-thinking synthesis, this would have blown minds back in 1983. To be fair, it still blows minds now. Especially with Danish edit maestros Flemming Dalum and Steen Gjerulff and Italoconnection on remix duties. The former remain faithful to the instrumental version to the very end with slight additional production on the middle eighth while the latter apply more beef in the kicks and arpeggiated bottom end.
Red Laser conductor general Il Bosco once again turns his beam on 8 tracks of mind melding italo. Providing a double vinyl release of tracks that have been inspirational to Red Laser Records and the labels releases. This isn’t by any means your run of the mill italo selection. Il Bosco knowingly selects a set that shows the true girth of style and fashion in the genre. Face grillers are ramped up next to sleazy pop sensibilities. Goth-synth disco frottages with 8-bit machine gun bass lines. Chugger masterpieces salivate on crystalline new romantics. As the compiler says ‘Truth is loads of Italo is shite but when its good it’s up there with the best electronic disco music you will ever hear’ Check this album and you’ll agree. For maximum disco potential several Red Laser protagonists have suitably revamped and edited some of the selections with Kid Machine & Il Bosco uniting in the cut, Flemming Dalum sprinkling his magic dust over a bonafide classic & Parisian Romain Bezzina repairing an old banger. As always Red Laser pay close attention to detail with all tracks carefully restored & remastered whilst the vinyl comes in full colour heavy card inners with two riso print poster sleeves & a gatefold pvc cover.
