Massimo Barsotti D J - Whole Lotta Love

Barsotti D J's Italian electro versions of the Led Zepplin classic!! This leftfield killer is from 1983 and was released on cult Italo label Fuzz Dance. Not a lot is known of Barsotti and as far as i'm aware this was his biggest and only hit (I may be wrong). This is one seriously dirty, sleazy record. Over the years i've heard a lot of covers of this Led Zepplin track but this is my favourite.

Bryan Ferry - Dont Stop The Dance (John Daly Edit)

Look up "languid" in the dictionary and you'll no doubt find a photograph of the Roxy Music frontman and Britain's very own King of Cool.


Warriors Disco (Skinny Joe Edit)

The problem in the past has been the man turning us against one another. We have been unable to see the truth, because we have been fighting for ten square feet of ground, our turf, our little piece of turf. That's crap, brothers! The turf is ours by right, because it's our turf. All we have to do is keep up the general truce. We take over one borough at a time. Secure our territory... secure our turf... because it's all our turf.

Loui$ - Pink Footpath (Disco Mix)

This is Italian group "Loui$" best track in my opinion and is probably the one all the diggers are after. It has a nice steady beat and bassline and is so soulful it hurts......By the way i don’t have a clue what the singer is talking about.

Grace Jones - Williams Blood (Greg Wilson Edit)

The queen of weird "Grace Jones" may be one of the only controversial icons left from the 80’s. In the old days you had Iggy Pop, Andy Warhol, and many others. But nowadays they have all let us down. They died or completely sold out to commercial shit.

Sledgehammer (Micro Funk Re-Edit)

This song has been recorded several times - the first being at The Backyard Studio (MK I) in 1997. As fate would have it, that version never survived....as did none of the subsequent versions and remixes............until now!!............Enjoy!


Champ's Boy's Orchestra - Tubular Bells (Cosmic Mix)


Lindstrom - Violent Group (Disco Version)


Lace - Can't Play Around (Instrumental Levan Mix)

So the new thing is disco??? which I’m quite pleased about, and the bandwagon ride is proving fairly pleasant. Fortunately unlike minimal or new-rave etc etc etc, it seems that disco does actually exist. Thankfully this means that we can spend more time appreciating the records than shooting the breeze about what this thing called disco might actually be!!

Dolle Jolle - Balearic Incarnation (Todd Terje Remix)

Dølle Jølle is the newest tentacle to the evergrowing octopuss which some people might call the Oslo disco scene. He grew up in the dark and hilly woods of Mjøndalen - a place which has bred a another discoid producer and dj, namely the mighty Todd Terje. Dølle and Todd went to school together and soon became friends, sharing the same passion for the odd and enticing electronic music coming to rural Norway through the ether from djs such as Strangefruit, Rune Lindbæk and Prins Thomas. This sparked the first attempts at creating dance music with outdated computers and tracker software, and later record collecting and djing. Upon moving to Oslo in 2001 he soon got into the dj-culture and met many of the like-minded people in town. This further fueled the djing and record collecting, and since 2006 he has, together with his long-time friend Todd Terje, been running the club-night Shari Vari, which has hosted djs like Baldelli, Nishimura and Lindstrøm. Musically his biggest influences are the underground disco sounds of the late 70s and early eighties, though new electronic music and,more recently, prog, kraut and folk is an important part of the mixture....................Enjoy!!!!!!!!!
