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

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.

Sorry, found the thread I shoulda been posting on here: Italo Disco RFI

Thanks Renard.

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.

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.

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 (eleven 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 (eleven 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 (eleven years ago) Permalink


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 (eleven 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.

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

Dan Selzer (Dan Selzer), Thursday, 26 January 2006 21:09 (eleven 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:

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 (eleven 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 (eleven 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]
09 POISSON MORT [01:16]
10 I OWE YOU (RMX) [04:37]
11 LOST [09:30]

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.

telephone thing I would love you (even more than I already do obv.) if you could re-up the Rub'n'Tug. (And thanks for putting it there in the 1st place.)

256 VBR?

Or as a .wav?

(Joke! I'm looking forward to hearing this!)

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 (eleven 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 (eleven 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 ( 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.

telephone thing, Wednesday, 1 February 2006 15:48 (eleven years ago) Permalink

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

telephone thing, Wednesday, 1 February 2006 15:49 (eleven years ago) Permalink

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

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

Love most of the music, but put me in the "I think a Doors song ruins any mix" camp.

thanks vahid!

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 (eleven 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 (eleven 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 (eleven 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.

new beardo-friendly NYC party alert:

Dazzle Ships
Jeremy Cambpell, Dan Selzer, Scott Zacharius
Monday 2/6
at Heathers, 506 e 13th st, near Ave A
starting at 8 o'clock
2 drinks for 1 till 9
2 dollar Tecate beer till 10.
bartending by the Drunken Sailor.

This is a one-off trial run, will hopefully do it more often. Small, nice bar, shitty sound, friendly like-minded bartender, early evening adventures in neo-Cosmic, pitch adjust abusing mood-setting. Slow disco, weird new wave, drunken ideas.

Tracer Hand (tracerhand), Monday, 6 February 2006 06:04 (eleven years ago) Permalink

xpost, i know of a night that almost fits the bill. it's more disco than cosmic though moroder and his ilk get their dues.

beardo - roxanne shante
not beardo - salt'n'pepa

interesting...i pasted and italicized this fragment of your post because at first i was going to ask you to explain, but i think i get it now. both artists seem tangential to the conversation here at least, but there really is a world of difference between the two.

dom's mentioned thread is here.

Some nice stuff...but a bit confusing. These things already existed...Space Disco is a term that's been used since the 70s. And as I mention above, Cosmic is it's own thing, a specific scene and aesthethic, that claimed to be very anti-Italo disco. You mention cosmic disco, but not Cosmic. Dominique...are you presenting this suggesting that Space Disco is an umbrella terms for all these thing, or has it already entered the lexicon?
