Everything about Giallo Disco is great.

  1. Zoot Woman – Grey Day (2003) 

     

    I don’t have many musical memories from driving back home after a typical Ghent night out. But this one made it to memory lane (well actually also DJ Deeon – Da Dik Suk, but let’s forget about that. The little bastard took me by surprise.).

  2. Stelee Up – Waiting for you (1984)

All credits to The Franks’ second half Jackie Chavez.

 

  1. Anna – Systems Breaking Down (1982)

Systems breaking down. Let’s do a major sitdown and remain seated.

Your top 5 picks & why:

 

Matthew Herbert – The Audience

One of my favorite tracks & top music to end the night in a delicious dancing way , possible that I jump off stage to dance with my fellow music brothers & sisters.

Link – Amenity

 Ah , The nineties in full effect ! Evolution records was the mighty label of Tom Middleton & Mark Pritchard , this was released in 1996 & a milestone for electronic music . At 1st you think this is ambient but it’s not !

Jon Hopkins – Light Through The Veins

I saw Hopkins for the 1st Time as support act for Herbert & I instantly heard a genius of this era & by now he has all the credits he deserves , splendid club tune & probably one of the best tunes to end a set .

Dave Valentin – Cinnamon & Gloves

This is music by humans for humans . discovered on the dingwalls compilation.

Funkadelic – I Bet You

The world would be a duller place without them , 100 % top funk from their 1st record (1970 ) buy this if you can.

Boards Of Canada – Aquarius

It ’s normal for me to play all night & in the morning people & music can turn loose. From Music Has The right To Children & that’s a fact , on WARP records .

Matthew Halsall & The Gondwana Orchestra

Into Forever

Wisdom of life & woman power in the morning is always a good idea , timeless smart jazz .

Singers & Players Feat Prince Far I – Bedward

From the mighty On-U Sound & this list would not be complete without them , this is the story of a priest who taught he could fly.

Jah Wobble & Bill Laswell – Alsema Dub

From Axiom label , a sub division of island Records & they released some of the best records ever , This is Dub in all his glory , from Radio Axiom

Kraftwerk – Computer Love

No list is complete without the fathers of electronic music .

Your top 5 picks & why:

 

1)  51 Days – Paper Moon 

Legendary label from the early nineties. All releases (mostly from Dobre, Zki & Jamez) were really good & still sound very fresh 23 years after release.

2) Spike – Kanti Datum (Abel rmx)

Just buy the full album “Orange Cloud Nine” where the original is included. All winners on it. This is a more “dance friendly” edit from Red Light Radio’s Abel.

3) A Vision Of Panorama – Cacades

Solid & melodic track with the typical AVOP sound in it. I’ve played this one a lot in the Texture Radio shows & when I’m doing the warming-up or closing down I mostly have it with me. 

4) Midnight Zone – Danger Zone

This was re-released on the PPU label a few years ago. All time classics & a perfect one for early mornings.

5) Pino Daniele – Yes I Know My Way

Good memories on this track but haven’t played it out much. Always hesitating if it’s the perfect moment or not and then I forget to play it … 😉

One day!
