Raffaele Fiume presents Fancy – Null Null [RAF001]

During the eighties it was possible to observe an Italian fascination with the mysterious Far East. This can be found across art, design and music in Italy during this time, in subtle or obvious ways. Specifically there are Italo-disco records that proudly show this influence, some of the best known being: Fun Fun – ‘Living In Japan’, Koto – ‘Chinese Revenge’ and City-O’ – ‘Rose of Tokyo’. Following in this theme is Fancy – ‘Null Null’, a one-off project from Italo-disco icon Raffaele Fiume. Adding to the original tracks of the 1982 release is a totally ecstatic and powerful remix from Betonkust: one of the most talented and exciting Dutch producers of recent years. Also included is an instrumental edit from Hysteric, for those who find the unique vocals challenging.

VA – BEST 003: Need Some Friends EP [BEST003]

The world of Bestiole is like a giant disco ball, where she likes to dance all around and meet some friends to share some music : Roger Thornhill gave classic disco perfection, Hysteric sent a letter from the far east, or maybe from Italy, Turbo Boom-Boom chewed a funky bubblegum song to make a housy rolling track and Baerlz reworked a boogie track, just what it needed to have the righteous construction for the dancefloor.

Giusy Dej – Walking In The Night [GIUSY001]

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.
