007 – Side A

The Soulwax brothers return for yet another must-own in their Waffles edit series. Side A is apparently an edit of ‘Tokimeki’ Japanese artist Akiko Yano and has an immediate effect with its swirling synthline and bassline that ascends with its ‘why don’t you come and get it?” chorus.

Pushing Movies

Thinking About You (Lauer remix)

Pushing Movies is Jeffrey Sire and Dimitri SoEmotional and their collab dives into some of my favourite sounds – “Italo disco, synth pop and all things slick and 80s.”

My favourite take on this track is on the B-side by Lauer (Fort Romeau also offers up a take), which amplifies the energy and ’80s verve with an immediacy that drives the dancefloor even harder.

PREMIERE: Pushing Movies - Thinking About You (Lauer Remix) [Cocktail d'Amore]



The Voice of Q

Summer means Italo for my record bag (or USBs more often) and this classic just got a remastered 12″ reissue.



Anytime or Place

Another reissue, this time the 1979 Mediterranean disco band’s album Disco Fizz. ‘San Salvador’ which also features on the album is another banger. This track was recently edited by Mix & Fairbanks as the excellent ‘Notions’.

Azoto - Anytime or Place


Mind Enterprises


A modern dance pop deeply indebted to Italo by an Italian artist based in the UK.

Krystal Klear


‘Neutron Dance’ is obviously one of the songs of the summer but the rest of The Division EP is no slouch either.

Krystal Klear -  Shockzoid


DJ Koze

Pick Up

Melancholic uplifting music from the German master. The 10-minute version where possible.

Pumphouse Gang

Welcome to my Life

A highlight from Quare Grooves, the recent All City compilation of rare groove, punk-funk, and electro and one we’ve been closing Lumo Club with recently.


Pet Shop Boys

West End Girls

A perennial curtain closer.
