The diffidence of the 70s (Part 11).

Hi out there!

Pre P. S.: I never thought that I would mix a tune from this artist ever! ;-)

It's been more than a year now that I posted a song from the 70s, but today's the day to do it again. I wanted to do this one anyway shortly, but a mail I recently got from Niels from Denmark, who still runs a famous private website about his favourite band THE HUMAN LEAGUE, reminded me of the today's song immediately. If you ever have a chance to listen to their song 'Total Panic' you maybe know what I mean.

So this tune today came out in 1977 and it didn't correspond at all to the other songs of the album from this artist IMHO. But I (still) see it as a musical forerunner to all the music that came out in the 80s which had an electronical backgrond.

Ach - I guess you all will see what I mean, right? ;-) The song itself is genius!

ENJOY! Floyd Anderson.

P. S.: This is my last posting made in Austria, because I return to Australia in two weeks time.

The decadence of the 80s (Part 62).

Hey folks, it's disco time!

Well, the fact is that I realised, after bringing out the heavy stuff from the 'Neue Slowenische Kunst' yesterday, some people may get upset with their lives, or get maybe in a deeply depression - and after my 'Soulbrother in mixing' DreamTime did such a fantastic mix of a disco tune I wanted to do since ever, but he was faster, I thought to post some light and dancy music today.

You may have noticed that the thing above is just one sentence, so I shouldn't talk such a lot of crap ;-) . It's typical for the German language, I think. The problem is: I try to write and talk in English, but I still do think in German.

Back to the topic: In short, the today's tune is from a Dutch music project, and it was quite a hit back in those days of the later disco music. It's a pity that they've done just a few more singles before they left the music scene.

ENJOY! Floyd Anderson.
