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.
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.
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’.
A modern dance pop deeply indebted to Italo by an Italian artist based in the UK.
‘Neutron Dance’ is obviously one of the songs of the summer but the rest of The Division EP is no slouch either.
Melancholic uplifting music from the German master. The 10-minute version where possible.
