oh you guys

Dominique (dleone), Wednesday, 25 January 2006 18:14 (8 years ago) Permalink

Perhaps this, too, should be it's own thread and maybe there is one but I couldn't find it. But is there a remotely definitive Italo Disco collection on cd? It looks like ZYX puts out about 20 of them a year, but is there at least a good, perhaps multi-disc, place to start?

matt2 (matt2), Wednesday, 25 January 2006 18:56 (8 years ago) Permalink

there's definately been threads, but the easiest way to start is by downloading Mixed Up At the Hague from:

http://www.cybernetic-broadcasting.net/home/?page=mixage1

and listen to the Cybernetic radio station.

2 good and hip italo comps are Environ's Unclassics, and Irma's I-Robots.

The ZYX stuff is expansive and covers italo from the viewpoint of the eastern-european italo fans, who tend to like stuff a lot cheesier then most of us.

just to say I really like the campfire mixcd, and for me the "errors" in the mix makes the charm of the cd and it goes well with the random sounds and the spaced out selection, great mix....

so I dunno if I missed it, but that aNYthing mixcd thing was finally posted ?

would love to hear it.

thanks

Thanks Dan. I've got Unclassics and really enjoy it. Discogs tells me that I-Robots is largely instrumental, which is disappointing cause I like the very special vocals. I'm tempted to give one of those ZYX collections a whirl just to see, but I have no clue where to start. I loved the Pineapples and M&G tracks from this post on the fourfour blog. Any others in that general realm you would recommend?

matt2 (matt2), Wednesday, 25 January 2006 20:26 (8 years ago) Permalink

mixed up in the hague is prob the best - actually you should go on slsk and search "italo". I know there are several people (including me) sharing folders full of stuff

Nah, it never showed. I'd love to hear it.

I've got a review of that Campfire mix going up on Stylus, err, whenever they put it up.

if you can find that italo de ruggerio mix, I think fezaffe linked it. I almost prefer it to any of the more well known mixes. if not I can YSI.

Ronan (Ronan), Wednesday, 25 January 2006 21:48 (8 years ago) Permalink

the best vocal italo stuff hasn't really been comped, because the compies so far have been coming from a techno/electro background, and for some CRAZY reason, prefer the instrumentals (whether it's I-Robots feat. Dharma's instrumental, or the bootleg w/ Amin Peck minus vocals). There's plenty online, and just search italo there's been a bunch of threads where people, myself included, have listed our favorite songs, most of which are on soulseek, often ripped from one of those I Love Disco Diamonds or ZYX comps. Rich's post was great and I'd never heard some of the stuff he was sharing.

Dan Selzer (Dan Selzer), Wednesday, 25 January 2006 22:53 (8 years ago) Permalink

The lack of vocals on "Dirty Talk" is probably Mixed Up @ the Hague's solitary flaw.

Tim Finney (Tim Finney), Wednesday, 25 January 2006 22:56 (8 years ago) Permalink

the flipside being that he used, albeit briefly, the vocal of Sun-La-Shan's Catch, while I-Robots uses the dub. I'm still looking if anyone even has an mp3 of the vocal version of Catch. Maybe I'll find the 12"...maybe.

i thought i knew the song until i heard the vocal version. makes it 100x better.

first of all, let me say i am VERY disappointed w/ my thread. WTF people? take yr italo-discussion to the italo-thread!

second, what's up with the "mixing / not mixing" red herring? the rub + tug mix, harvey's mixes, glimmer twins mixes - all perfectly beatmatched. ok rub+tug are a bit sloppy w/ the feedback. so what? so are plenty of other (non beardo) sound systems.

vahid (vahid), Thursday, 26 January 2006 20:54 (8 years ago) Permalink

Last post on this here vahid, I promise from the bottom of my heart.

What is this "italo de ruggerio mix" Ronan? I'd definitely be interested. And I am definitely enjoying the Hague mix.

matt2 (matt2), Thursday, 26 January 2006 21:01 (8 years ago) Permalink

ARRRRGGGGGHHH

ok, let me try to distract y'all from italo by bringing up a couple of issues that will have some people frothing

is beardo the new big beat? is beardo indebted to big beat? i was listening to cut la roc's FSUK4 and i'm thinking - very beardo! lip service to rap, heavy funk+disco influence, lots of hip-hop cut-up influence.

second, where do electronic acts w/ strong rock influences fit in? greenskeepers? trabant? twinnie? captain comatose? seems sort of unfair to ignore these guys just because they don't use live drums / perc.

vahid (vahid), Thursday, 26 January 2006 21:02 (8 years ago) Permalink

beardo and big beat both love the classic rock? The difference being, which classic rock?

Alec D., music director of APT, made 2 volumes of italo mixes. Gomma hosted them for a while and I'm sure they're all over soulseek. Other Music sold them as well. I got mine as a gift from Italo himself.

Dan Selzer (Dan Selzer), Thursday, 26 January 2006 21:08 (8 years ago) Permalink

that latter part being the response to "What is this "italo de ruggerio mix""

Dan Selzer (Dan Selzer), Thursday, 26 January 2006 21:09 (8 years ago) Permalink

The new big beat....sheeeyid, I hope not. It'll end in tears. I reckon prog would have a definite connection here. Interesting how it was also connected to the ambient scene in the early nineties, System 7 and all that stuff. Also Fleetwood Mac being used on chill out by KLF. Lucious did a mix for Market Frenzy that was all prog, would highly reccomend it. Then there's the new track on bumrocks, a Grateful Dead edit, done by the chap at Market Frenzy apparently.

Here's the Rub 'n' Tug mix cd:

http://s38.yousendit.com/d.aspx?id=08H87IPDG7BZK1PKGD8GLEF3WR

At 128kbps to cut down on the file size a bit. Sorry it took so long, the CD was squirreled away in a closet for some reason. Let me know if the YSI link expires and I'll re-up it.

telephone thing, Sunday, 29 January 2006 07:20 (8 years ago) Permalink

To my surprise, I like the Grateful Dead track on bumrocks, and I have never like them.

Jacobs (LolVStein), Sunday, 29 January 2006 10:52 (8 years ago) Permalink

Okay, so it looks like there will be a collection of some of his previously 12" only tracks coming out. I only found out about it from the Kompakt mp3 store but it's gonna be Playhouse CD017 it appears. No clue as to a release date (here in the US anyway). So, here is the tracklist. Anyone with knowledge of any of these, please let us know your feelings on good choices, glaring omissions, etc. I only have the two full-lengths.

01 BLEU [05:28]
02 INITIATE II [06:04]
03 ROCKERS [05:35]
04 MONITOR [06:24]
05 SURFERS [06:27]
06 SIMONE RIDES [06:12]
07 KING OFF [05:35]
08 CITE GRANDE TERRE [04:01]
09 POISSON MORT [01:16]

SUNUVABITCH, sorry folks. Wrong thread, clearly. Never compose a post in email (hiding at work, you know) and just post it in the ILM tab you have up before checking to make sure it is, in fact, the ISOLEE thread. So, so sorry. But since we're at it, the correct post it over here (Isolee) if any of you all have anything to say. Sorry again for hijacking your thread vahid (although inadvertantly this time).

harvey killed it at the bar i do my night at this past saturday night! the most crowded i've ever seen it, to... maybe 200 people in a bar with a absolutely maximum capacity of 125 going nuts all night long. it was a pleasure to see so many people having so much fun to a lot of the songs and artists mentioned all over this thread.

i told him that i had listened to those interviews he gave on the red bull music academy site and he said, "that's great!... and... weird." he also once (6 or so months ago) gave me my favorite response ever when i had asked what record he was playing, "hey, this is great! what is it?" "I don't fucking care!" and then he laughed maniacally. i was a little hurt at first but then i realized that he probably actually didn't care what it was and was telling me that i maybe shouldn't either.

o, monday morning.

i got the Rub n' Tug mix the first time... but i missed where its from... any info/ tracklist?

grady, Wednesday, 1 February 2006 07:36 (8 years ago) Permalink

I think I like Campfire more in theory than in practice :-(

The Flash & The Pan track is amazing though.

Tim Finney (Tim Finney), Wednesday, 1 February 2006 09:56 (8 years ago) Permalink

I like it in practice more then theory!

I always thought that Flash and the Pan were boogie rock. Since they're AC/DC related I should have known that they were a disco band as well.

(Repost the mix and I'll give you some info! I really wanna hear it so am blackmailing you.)

It didn't come with a tracklist, sorry- the disc is a promo for aNYthing (http://www.anewyorkthing.com/) simply called "Rub 'n' Tug volume 1." There's almost no info at all on the packaging. I got it at Turntable Lab a couple of months ago, they might still have copies.

Also re-upping the mix right now as high-bitrate VBR- YSI takes a hell of a long time.

the part on there that's like acid house with rapping over it is nuts .... I'm assuming that's an acappella layered over something else? anyone know? comes in at about the 12 min mark.

love the music on the mix but put me in the "all the mistakes are annoying" camp

so to those who've heard both .... is the aNYthing mix better / worse than the one on Eskimo?

Renard (Renard), Wednesday, 1 February 2006 21:02 (8 years ago) Permalink

the aNYthing mix is more contemporary, and more smoothly-mixed. campfire is more revelatory - i'd only heard like two of the tracks before, as opposed to about 90% of the aNYthing mix.

vahid (vahid), Wednesday, 1 February 2006 21:05 (8 years ago) Permalink

Have y'all checked out Eric Duncan's (rub 'n tug) mix on beats in space?

Makrugaik (makrugaik), Wednesday, 1 February 2006 21:10 (8 years ago) Permalink

I'm used to not having heard most of the stuff on DJ mixes so maybe the whole cratedigging aspect of Campfire is lost on me. The mixing does annoy me too (esp. the sudden drops and rises in volume, which isn't just annoying but potentially painful!). It is fun, but I just feel like I'd reach for a Glimmers mix or even one of those A Touch of Class online mixes more readily.
