     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    Take the gayest song ever and sample it and make a fun upbeat electro disco recording of it utilizing elements of The Weather Girls Paul Jabara written hit song It’s Raining Men and you have a fun track! That’s exactly what Beatfanatic did with Goin Out. It’s from his album Beat A Part which is chock full of electro disco cuts with a heavy 80s influence. My delicious cup of tea. LOL! I love it and have been exploring more and more of Beatfanatics music lately. Beatfanatic’s music is sample heavy as most of his recordings have one hit 80s disco song or another 70s disco cut. This is a true genius producing music from existing cuts.

    Albums by Beatfanatic to note include:

    Soundscapes (21 Deep Cuts)
    Beat A Part
    Vinyl Junkie Culture
    I Love It EP
    Robots EP

    So go check these absolutely groovy disco delish albums by Beatfanatic out now and get groovin’!

  2. HORSE MEAT DISCO III


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    Horse Meat Disco 3 picks up where Horse Meat Disco 2 left off last year and I’m digging what I hear so far! Horse Meat Disco 3 is a collection of underground disco cuts that you probably have not heard of before but definitely should as these are the disco cuts that really should be the better known ones. On Horse Meat Disco 3 there are several stand out cuts and edits or remakes/remixes of existing ones. Horse Meat Disco 3 kicks off with French trio Belle Epoque and their hit Miss Broadway with an edit here by Gazeebo. A fun poppy disco cut if you haven’t heard it then it’s certainly worthwhile. Skip ahead to Sweet Dynamite by Claudja Barry edited by Todd Terje! Wow I dig this. I love Claudja Barry’s music and this edit by Todd Terje gives Sweet Dynamite a brand new life! Like Bottin did with Lio’s Sage Oil a couple of years back!

    Next up on Horse Meat Disco 3 is Fuzz Against Jazz and their really funky groovy disco number Born Under Puncher (Harvey’s Punch Drunk Mix). It’s a nice beat and I’m totally digging this cut and it’s perfectly fit in order here. What comes up next is a totally funky disco number which is also remixed by Todd Terje – Moon Jocks ‘n’ Prog Rocks by Mungolian Jetset is one awesome cut on here that I had to repeat over and over again. It sounds like it came from the 70s height of disco music but this thing was released last month. I say it’s amazing.

    By now I’m really enjoying Horse Meat Disco 3 as I love the idea of mixing music from today that sounds like disco and dance from the 70s with disco music from the 70s and 80s. It’s great so far!

    Dimitri From Paris & DJ Rocca Present Erodiscotique’s Downtown is perfectly mixed next into this great mix so far and how can you go wrong with Dimitri From Paris? The guy is a genius and this track, Downtown is quite nice!

    I’m In Love by Yam Who? is a remake of the Sha-Lor classic from the late 80s and it’s great here and I’m In Love definitely deserves the remake treatment as it’s a long lost late 80s dance/house classic. Gosh I can still remember hearing this here in San Francisco back in the late 80s!

    Billie Ray Martin? Yes it’s nice she’s back. Can you remember her in the mid 90s with her hit Your Loving Arms Around Me? Well she’s got great new stuff and this cut Sweet Suburban Disco is a standout. Let’s please get a hit out of this one!

    I think the stand out cut on Horse Meat Disco 3 is You Don’t Know (Horse Meat Disco Remix) by Tambi. This thing is just awesome. I hadn’t heard of Tambi but boy I’m glad I did. You will dig it. Other cuts on Horse Meat Disco 3 include 2 cuts by Sylveseter, Idris Muhammad, The Glimmers (one of my favorite acts as of late) and Two Tons Of Fun.

    Overall a great collection of cuts are represented on Horse Meat Disco 3 and perfectly mixed to perfection by the Horse Meat Disco boys. Worth of owning this great compilation. Preview the tracks below.

  3. Top 10 Best Munk Songs Ever!!!


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    One of my favorite acts for about 10 years now, Munk has been creating some of the best dance and electronic music around. His music is mostly disco and electro with touches of house and other cool hip subgenres in the dance world all rolled into some of the best music around. I’ve been following his releases since I first head Androgyn back in 2002 then I was hooked. Later discovering and heard first Disco Clown (Midnight Mike Remix) and later Ce Kul (Francisco Remix) and finally I was really hooked and anticipated more and more releases from one of the best electronic and dance producers out there ever! I’m glad that he doesn’t tire and move on but he produces countless excellent releases and most are excellent. Because of this I had to compile a top ten list of my favorite releases from Munk. Mostly also because his new album The Bird and The Beat has come out recently and more and more releases with countless remixes get released and are definitely worth checking out. Munk is it now!

    What I like most about Munk is because most of his tracks have the retro disco flavor that I love. It’s totally Nu Disco! He doesn’t shy away from that sound but it’s totally now though so you are not going to get Gloria Gaynor or Village People sound here so it’s what’s hip and cool. His releases have a very Euro sound and that’s another reason that I tend to but it’s not cheesy stuff it’s definitely good underground dance and electronic music. If you have not heard of Munk then it’s time you discovered his sound. Check it out below! You will love the tunes!

  4. Never Gonna Reach Me (Hot Toddy Remix) by Crazy P


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    Crazy P or if you know them as Crazy Penis is an electronic band from the UK which release soulful, house music with a highly concentrated disco flavor. Since I discovered them several years ago with their album 24 Hour Psychedelic Freakout, I immediately fell in love with their laidback, sexy nu disco sound. I just can’t get enough of that sexy sound.

    Never Gonna Reach Me is off of Crazy P’s excellent album Stop Space Return with influences of early New York City house music and combed with disco and 80s dance and pop music styles with sultry disco diva vocals added in to make for an album you wont stop listening to. The original Never Gonna Reach Me is this very mellow, downtempo early disco sounding cut that you can hear full on real instruments in the song with a very minimal production style. It could thought of as being released in the late 70s or early 80s It’s perfectly situated as the fourth track on Stop Space Return. The Hot Toddy Remix is my favorite version as it’s given a more smoother deep house disco treatment. It’s an almost 10 minute journey to sexy after hours disco land. I just absolutely love it and I’m sure you will too! Hot Toddy have done great remix job on this track.

    If you like Crazy P’s sound you will certainly have to check out Hot Toddy’s releases as well. Late Night Boogie by Hot Toddy is excellent and hey it’s all in the family. Hot Toddy is Chris Todd from Crazy P so figures that he would do the remixing for his own music. Right?

    If you like disco flavored electronic and house music then Stop Space Return is your kind of a release. Check it out and check out some of the other Crazy P releases too. Later by Crazy P is also a good album to start out with the sounds and influences of Crazy p! Enjoy!

  5. Everybody Dance (Chic Inspirational Mix) by Evolution


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    Deconstruction was the reliable dance music label from the UK to turn to in the very early 90s! I mean come on they released the huge Black Box singles Everybody, Everybody, I Don’t Know Anybody Else, Strike It Up and of course their huge album Dreamland. But it was more than Black Box. There were huge acts that came from this legendary label. M People, K-Klass, Kylie was there for a bit, Robert Miles, Felix with their huge hit Don’t You Want Me, Hyper Go Go with their hit High, The Grid, N-Joi and of course this little known act and cover of a Chic song Evolution doing Everybody Dance.

    This song Everybody Dance is a very similar remake of the original disco classic by Chic. It’s a bit more uplifting and soulful and a bit infused with a gospel house feel. It’s nothing original but this came out during the disco revival thing and was a pretty big hit for Evolution. Although later in the late 90s and early 2000s Evolutions sound completely changed to a more progressive house sound. Check out their album Unnatural Selection and their hit Walking On Fire. Completely different sound but it was obvious that they would go that direction and signed to John Digweed’s Bedrock label.

  6. Sana Doris Samples Diana Ross Upside Down With Pseudo Wind


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    This is the strangest, gayest Diana Ross remake, sample, cover ever. I like it actually and it sounds like something RuPaul could have pulled off back in the 90s or it could have perfectly fit in the film Paris Is Burning from ’91. Though there’s no RuPaul here this remake called Pseudo Wind by Sana Doris comes to us by way of the In Flagranti guys by way of Codek Records. So it’s gotta be cool right? This is from the 12″ SOUNDS SUPERB VOL. 6 and it’s worth it. If you can’t get your hands on it do it as fast as you can. Or else  you have Pseudo Wind by Sana Doris below so you can sample that and check out In Flagranti for more disco dance flavored releases. I know you are a closet disco lover so go get some In Flagranti and enjoy! They have a very sleazy, naughty disco sound that once you taste you wont go back. Enjoy! and Enjoy the promo video below as well!

  7. Top Ten Best Italo-Disco Songs Ever!!!


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    America killed disco music back in the late 70s and Europe fought back by coming up with cool new subgenres in the dance and disco world so Italo-Disco was born out of the ashes of disco music in the late 70s and it’s certainly the evolution of disco dance music. Italo-Disco was mostly popular in Italy and Germany later reaching as far as France, UK, Spain and elsewhere on the main continent and Italo-Disco was the main form of dance music throughout most of the 80s there. Here in the states it was known as Hi-NRG because really disco was dead here and Italo-Disco was too Euro! Whatever you want to call it though I love my Italo-Disco. Ok it could get a bit cheesy but boy this subgenre has some of the best tracks ever in the dance and electronic music world and I’ve compiled the Top Ten best Italo-Disco Songs ever below and if you’re new to this style of music but do like dance and electronic music then you will certainly like these. Most of these were underground hits here in the states but you might have heard one or two here and there. Mostly Problèmes d’Amour  by Alexander Robotnick which was featured in a scene in National Lampoons European Vacation.

    Others songs on this Top Ten best Italo-Disco Songs ever list you might have heard of are I’m Ready by Kano a very sexy, dance track with an electro disco beat. It has been featured on countless compilations lately and if you don’t know Kano you need to know of Kano. And I’m not speaking of Kano the rapper. Hell no! Check out their very excellent Greatest Hits of excellent Italo-Disco songs. They had a bigger hit in the states with It’s A War reaching number one on the Billboard dance charts around 1983.

    Spacer Woman by Charlie has been an underground Italo-Disco song for such a long time. It had a resurrection of some sorts about 5 or so years ago when an a really awesome compilation of Italo-Disco songs called I-Robots and was featured on that and since then it’s been on my iPod/iPhone. If you can get your hands on I-Robots then I would as it’s one of the best Italo-Disco compilations ever. Alot of songs in the Italo-Disco genre dealt with space, robots and love affairs taking place in outer space and with robots etc so Italo-Disco suited this very well and Spacer Woman is not short of dealing with lovers in outer space.

    I recently discovered Savage for the first time off of the Pet Shop Boys Back To Mine compilation which is highly recommended to own as it’s chock full of awesome dance music all influenced by the two members of the Pet Shop Boys. Ok earlier in the 2000s is when I discovered Savage and wasn’t sure how I missed Don’t Cry Tonight back in the early 80s? Don’t Cry Tonight is an excellent example of synthy, spacey mellower than normal Italo-Disco song. It’s certainly worthy of being included in this list of Top Ten Best Italo-Disco Songs Ever list.

    That leaves Peter Richard, Cyber People, Mr. Flagio (Check out Pet Shop Boys Back To Mine compilation for Take A Chance by Mr. Flagio as well), Gaz Nevada, Ken Laszlo and Lime to round out the Tp Ten Best Italo-Disco Songs Ever list. They’re all great and excellent choices.

    So check out the Top Ten Best Italo-Disco Songs Ever list below. Let me know what you think of these tracks. Like them? Hate them?

  8. Carry On, Turn Me On (Bottin Remix) by Space


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    Space is one of my favorite space disco acts from the late 70s! Hailing from the South Of France, they released countless spacey sounding energetic disco tracks with their biggest hit being Magic Fly! From that self titled album this song Carry On, Turn Me On original version is pulled from. Magic Fly the album also contains the excellent track Tango In Space. It’s an excellent album and certainly worth as Space and main frontman Didier Marouani is one of the innovators of electronic dance music.

    Bottin’s remix take on Carry On, Turn Me On is also excellent. It’s part of a killer compilation of great new remixes of Space tracks. King DJ’s awesome remake of Air Force is the highlight of the remix set along with this Bottin Remix of Carry On, Turn Me On. Other remixers include Sara Havcilek doing the remixing on Fasten Seat Belt which I also love and Foto’s Boulevard Of Dreams Mix of Deliverance rocks! Overall Space tracks have been given great new life in this collection of awesome remixes and I highly recommend any disco, electronic fan to own these great remixes and classic releases by Space.

  10. Moodswings Covers Donna Summer Covers Jon & Vangelis With State Of Independence


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    Boy! It was only after 15 years or so that I discovered that State Of Independence was originally remade by Donna Summer in 1982 a year after Jon & Vangelis released it off of their The Friends Of Mr. Cairo album from 1981. I have to say that the first time I heard State of Independence was the Moodswings version featuring the great Chrissie Hynde from The Pretenders on vocals. But I do have to say the version Donna Summer recorded a year after the Jon & Vangelis version are so similar. Very kind of minimal with a very mellow bounce beat added in with the vocals. Kind of doesn’t go anywhere for me and I’m glad it was remade and covered in the 90s. Check them both out below.

    Once you get to the Moodswings cover and the Murk remix of State Of Independence from 1996 then you get to some more excitement. The Moodswings trip hop version of State Of Independence has that euphoric, dream like quality with excellent haunting vocals from Chrissie Hynde then you get a total 360 degree turn around for the Donna Summer Murk Remix of State Of Independence. There are many more remixes on the single for Donna Summers State of Independence from 1996 but the Murk Remix is the best. A tad bit outdated today but still fun to check out.

  11. Wherever We Are (Grum Remix) by Human Life


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    I’ve been listening to a lot of 80s inspired or influenced electronic, pop, dance, synth influenced music lately and Human Life’s Wherever We Are are one of the acts that I’ve been listening to quite a bit. This feel good, happy song from the Los Angeles based act Human Life is just that and more especially if you check out all of the fun remixes of this hit song Wherever We Are. The band takes their influences heavily from catchy 80s music of the synth pop bands that were aplenty then. They then throw in stabs of early chicago house music and an added French electro inspired sound to create their own original sunshiney very LA feel to the music. I’m digging this and I can only wait to hear more from Human Life.

    My favorite remix is the Grum remix which is below. Check it out and check out the other remixes as well as they certainly are worth it and the original is still darn good for more poppier feel and sound. If you can also get your hands on Italo Crimewave you should!

  12. Top Ten Best Underground Disco Songs Ever!!!


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    Top Ten Best Underground Disco Songs Ever!!!

    Underground disco is where it’s at! I love disco music but I love stuff that’s more underground than your typical disco song that everyone knows of. These aren’t songs like I Will Survive, YMCA, That’s The Way (I Like It) or Staying Alive. A lot of these underground disco songs on this Top Ten Best Underground Disco Songs Ever list are stuff that barely made it to the top of the charts. Ok maybe Cerrone did but that’s why I have put them at the very bottom.

    Love In C Minor is one of my all time favorite disco songs but you know you can’t find those songs on any American released disco compilations. Nada so I figured it belongs on this list. I also added Boney M, the Frank Farian produced act who’s bigger hits were Ma Baker, Daddy Cool and Rasputin had to be included on here with ther small hit Gotta Go Home which was recently sampled by Duck Sauce for their song Barbra Streisand. If you haven’t heard that then you definitely need to check it out because it’s basically Boney M’s Gotta Go Home beefed up with a couple of vocal stabs thrown in that repeats Barbra Streisand.

    Donna McGhee’s LoveBug was recently sampled by Amplified Orchestra for their awesome nu disco cut I Want You so I had to include Donna McGhee’s LoveBug as it’s excellent on it’s own and as sampled by Amplified Disco. Check out both for sure.

    I’m really more into the European sound of disco music so I had to include Azoto. They had a bigger hit with San Salvador but I think Soft Emotion is just as good if not better than San Salvador. It’s one of those very groovy, sexy euro sounding cuts that once you listen to you’ll want to have on repeat! It’s quite cool! Whatcha think? Keep in mind the first 9 tracks are not in order …

    1. Like An Eagle by Dennis Parker
    2. Minor Disco (Re-Edit) by Ross Carnegie & Co

  13. Don’t Turn The Lights On (Aeroplane Remix) by Chromeo


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    Chromeo keep pushing the 80s inspired grooves with their single Don’t Turn The Light’s On off of their latest album Business Casual a truly fun 80s style album with touches of disco, funk and synth grooves. It’s a fun album and keeps pushing them forward now with their third great album. Well my favorite remix of Don’t Turn The Lights On is one by Aeroplane where the beats are a little more spacey, nu disco inspired similar to all of Aeroplane’s music. It’s still keeps the pace of the original version as this remix is not the remix to get your club groove on with. It’s got a more dreamy spacey laidback feel to it. I dig this nu disco sound and I’m sure you will too!

    If you haven’t heard of this great remix you should check it out below. You should also check out more music by Chromeo and Aerooplane here on DestroyRockAndRoll.com!

  14. Crystalised (Rory Phillips Remix) by The XX


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    This is a good example of a very bland boring alternative rock song that has been given LIFE by a really cool remix treatment by Rory Phillips! I’m so glad that the band The XX commissioned this remix by Rory Phillips as I really did not like the original.  There’s hardly any music on the original version of this song except for the bland singing. Ok the music does kick in a bit halfway through but then it fizzles out again. Sorry guys it’s needing something and luckily this Rory Phillips remix does wonders to it. The remix has a synthy, bouncy disco beat added to the very flat singing by the two members of The XX which actually compliment together quite well. Up until I heard this remix that I started liking the original version of  Crystalised. I can always say that remixes do what videos did to me when music videos were popular. Remixes turn me on to music that normally I wouldn’t listen to. Now I’m a fan of The XX like everyone else! Check out both original and remixed version below.

  15. 40 Thieves Featuring Qzen Covers Hot Chocolate With Don’t Turn It Off


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    I didn’t realize that this was a cover until I heard this songs several times. This is a very smooth, sexy and slightly upbeat version of Hot Chocolates Don’t Turn It Off sung by a lady, Qzen aka Susan Langan of 40 Thieves. This version is current with today’s nu disco sound and it’s a perfect version for sexy cocktail sipping at the hottest bars or cocktail parties at home with your sexy friends. It’s also perfect for walks and working out. I don’t really know much about 40 thieves but I did hear this off of a Greg Wilson mix CD, Credit To The Edit of disco and nu disco hits all mixed together. Was worth checking out to see what else 40 Thieves had done but not much more except for this awesome single Don’t Turn It Off covering Hot Chocolate.

    For Hot Chocolate this is certainly not You Sexy Thing but it’s a nice mellower disco number from them from 1979 but 40 Thieves have perfected her. A Permanent Vacation release. Check out both versions below.

  16. Full Intention Covers Patrick Juvet Disco Classic I Love America!


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    One of my all time favorite remakes is America (I Love America) by Full Intention. This is a remake of the Patrick Juvet disco classic I Love America from 1978 and this Full Intention remake came out initially in 1995 and later repackaged for an American audience in 1996 and released by Big Beat Records a division of Warner Atlantic. Hey does corporate America really get dance music? They were really trying in the 90s and since the nasty Bush years came and went things are starting to look a little more promising for dance music again. I’m really glad that America (I Love America) got an actual release as it’s an excellent example of 1990s house music with a slight disco touch! Very club friendly. This remake of the Patrick Juvet disco classic I Love America put Full Intention on the map. They have done countless tracks and remixes since then and they are still going strong! Full Intention were all over the place with major major remix credits. Remember Free by Ultra Nate? This remix basically samples the “I Love America” words from the original Patrick Juvet song.

    Ok I’m not sure about the whole message of I Love America nowadays as it’s a completely different place today than it was back in 1996. I still love America but sure do need a change! My favorite version of America (I Love America) is the Original Sugar Daddy 12″ Mix but you can check out the Full Intention 12″ Vocal Mix and the original album version of Patrick Juvet’s classic which clocks in at 14 minutes!!! Also check out these excellent new remixes of Full Intention’s I Love America too! These new remixes of America (I Love America) were released last year!

  17. Swimming Places (Sabaudia Gabin Remix) by Julien Jabre


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    Swimming Places was a huge club hit back in 2005 for Julien Jabre. It’s the perfect club house cut with slight touches of early 70s disco sounds. It’s minimal but cool, it’s mellow but groovy it’s perfect. Plus it’s one of those tracks that goes on and on for quite a long time. The original clocks in at almost 11 minutes! It’s classic and it’s only 5+ years old. The single was released with several remixes which pretty darn good. There were remixes by Jerome Sydenham and Peter Heller which were good but did not compare to the masterful original. I loved it. It’s the perfect track to get you into and uplifting mood. It’s not too hard!

    2 years later a new batch of remixes came out because the original Swimming Places by Julien Jabre was such a hit and this time I paid more attention because the Sabaudia Gabin Remix of Swimming Places was just as good if not better than the original! The original Swimming Places has a very island feel to it which should be mentioned but this remix by Sabaudia Gabin elevates the island feel. It’s slightly more upbeat than the original and adds a sort of island jazz house groove to it. It’s cool. Still not a hard dance club cut but it’s got quite a nice chill house groove to it!

    Enjoy both below!

Loads of classic disco cuts remixed, sampled or remade for your dancing pleasure. #1 is of course the huge club hit Keep On Jumpin’ by Lisa Marie Experience but the whole of the Top Ten Best Disco Remixes Ever are all cool.

     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    Here’s a great collection of cool edits of underground disco classics by master DJ Walter Gibbons called Jungle Music. These tracks are basically extended mixes/edits of well known and lesser known disco acts that Walter Gibbons used to spin at the clubs he had residencies in. There are cool cuts by Gladys Knight, Bettye Lavette, Double Exposure, Stetsasonic, Salsoul Orchestra and many more. If you are at all into disco or extended versions of songs then this is your compilation. Jungle Music by Walter Gibbons is highly worth owning. One of my favorites is Set It Off (Walter Gibbons 12″ Mix) by Strafe. A classic disco track that I’ve known for quite sometime now and here it’s in a 12+ minute of cool, sexy midtempo disco glory. Lovin’ it very much. Check it out below and check out the rest of the tracks from Jungle Music by Walter Gibbons here.

  20. The Bucketheads Sample Movin’ by Brass Construction With Got Myself Together


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    Taking disco and sampling it into house music in the 90s was a regular thing. It happened over and over again and I’m so happy that that era happened because two of my favorite styles of music had blended together to become an awesome style – disco house! Disco and House rule! Anyway this is a great example of that style. Take a Chicago house master like Kenny Dope and add a famous disco song from the 70s by Brass Construction, shake it up and end up with a classic 90s club hit by The Bucketheads!

    Got Myself Together was the second hit off of The Bucketheads one and only awesome album All In The Mind didn’t become as big a hit as The Bomb was but it’s just as good if not better than The Bomb. I’m sure everyone remember The Bomb with the classic line “These Sounds Fall Into My Mind”? Then you will for sure remember The Bucketheads. The album All In The Mind even contained a 15 minute version of The Bomb for non stop beats. It’s a classic track now 15 years strong! Phew those were good times in the 90s! Weren’t they? All In The Mind is chock full of tracks utilizing samples from bands such as Chicago, Level 42, Atmosfear and Linda Clifford. Boy if you love music that is made up of samples then this album needs to be in your collection!

    It was also so unique to discover a Latin/jazz version of Movin’ called Movin’ On by Ray Camacho of the Ray Camacho Band. All I have to say is that the 70s rules when it comes to music! Loads of cool hip styles were running all over. Kind of like the 90s and what’s starting to happen now again! Yay! Keep em comin’!

  21. Beam Me Up (Jacques Renault Remix) by Midnight Magic


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    Thanks to Hercules & Love Affair’s first self titled album the disco revival thing is happening big time and I think Midnight Magic are leading the way for some awesome cool new music. I love all things disco and this single Beam Me Up does not disappoint at all. I hear that Midnight Magic even has a former Hercules & Love Affair band member. Well if that’sBoth the original with it’s mellower groove and the Jacques Renault Remix with a slightly more upbeat version are great examples of nu disco. Beam Me Up has a slight 40s influence I hear as well. Is that intentional? I just love the cut and I can’t stop listening to it. And if you are into anything disco you will dig it for sure. Really looking forward to checking out what else Midnight Magic come up with!

    Check them out below and and check out two more awesome remixes of Beam Me Up by Midnight Magic here.

  22. Lisa Marie Experience Samples Musique With Keep On Jumpin’


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    What a club stormer this Musique remake Keep On Jumpin’ was back in 1996! Geez! I had not even heard of the original Musique disco version until way after I got into the Lisa Marie Experience version of Keep On Jumpin’. The kick ass version was the Bizarre Inc Remix although there were several different remixes from the single the Bizarre Inc version rocked. It was such big hit that Todd Terry decided to do a collaboration with Martha Wash and Jocelyn Brown and rerecord their own version. Although I prefer the Lisa Marie Experience version much, much better I do like the Ken Lou “Jumpin Pumpin” Mix version of the Todd Terry/Martha Wash/Jocelyn Brown version. Even though you can’t really tell that it’s a cover of Musique when you hear the Ken Lou “Jumpin Pumpin” Mix but it’s worth noting that they did a version of their own. Although I can be completely wrong here as I’m not really sure which version came first but in my book I think the Lisa Marie Experience version is a solid top notch quality production compared to Todd Terry’s.

    Musique was the short lived disco project by Patrick Adams. The group had a controversial underground hit with Push Push In The Bush prior to their biggest hit Keep On Jumpin’ then unfortunately the band broke up so they did not have the success that other groups from the same era had but glad we have these awesome remakes to remember Musique by!

    Keep On Jumpin’ by The Lisa Marie Experience was remixed in 2007 but unfortunately it does not live up to the original remake that was released in 1996!

    Check out all there versions below. I’m sure you’ll pick your favorite and agree with me.

  23. Alagoas Cowboys (Martin Brodin Remix) by Rodion


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    This is a pretty quirky electro disco track from Rodion by way of Gomma records in Germany. Alagoas Cowboys is from the Rodion For Ever Single and For Ever Remixes Single and the remix is certainly the more fun version. The original version of Alagoas Cowboys is more stripped down version which still is pretty fun but I first discovered this cut by listening to the Martin Brodin Remix. I love the whistling in the cut basically it’s mostly cool midtempo electronic disco beats with cute whistling nothing else. No vocals but all fun!

    I highly recommend Gomma Records and their releases. Everything by Munk is top notch and one of my favorite acts to follow for new releases.

  24. CFCF Covers Big Love by Fleetwood Mac


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    I first heard of CFCF with a couple of remixes he did for Sally Shapiro. Love In July and Time To Let Me Go are remixes in the style of downtempo with very disco disco flavored electronic dance that I’ve been digging so was eager to check out the CFCF album Continent where Big Love comes from. I was surprised to hear Big Love as it’s my favorite cut from Continent. And to my surprise after listening to it several times that I kept thinking it was a cover. And sure enough it’s a Fleetwood Mac cover from the 80s.

    Big Love was a pretty big hit for Fleetwood Mac and it’s your typical dance/pop song very much in line of the 80s sounding tracks. Nothing special now but still worth checking out to compare both the CFCF version of Big Love and the Fleetwood Mac version.I have had the CFCF version of Big Love on repeat lately and it’s certainly ended up on several of my playlists that I take with me on my iPhone and iPod. It’s one of those tracks that you can listen to in the background and as well listen to while having a little get together where you want some energy in your music and not get stuck to the chill out stuff that’s typical. Big Love by CFCF is off of his album Continent and Big Love by Fleetwood Mac is off of their Tango In The Night album from 1987. Check them out below.

  25. Bottin Remixes Sage Comme Une Image by Lio


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    Well it’s not quite a remix but certainly an edit and it’s a great new discovery for me from a little known French singer from the 80s by the name of Lio. I love this track so much and I’ve been playing it over and over again as it’s got the sexy, groovy and very early 80s French disco sound that I like and hear on many new tracks these days influenced by that sound.

    This is a very tasty edit here by Bottin is one of the best new discoveries ever. If you are at all into anything neo disco, electro, synth or 80s retro dance then this track is certainly for you both the original and the edit by Bottin. There’s not much of a difference between the original extended version versus the edit but both are highly recommended on repeat. Check them both out below and enjoy!
