Pop Dell'Arte 20 Years (Bloop Recordings)

This release marks the 20th anniversary of the original 1987 release of “Querelle”, an amazing piece of music. Pop Dell’Arte have gathered mythic status in Portugal. Their frontman, João Peste, was responsible for one of the most progressive and interesting indie labels of the 80s and released everything from alternative pop to experimental electronica. Against all odds, Peste managed to keep Pop Dell’Arte going since the mid-80s, although with many line-up changes, and in the process recorded several modern classics of the portuguese scene.
The Glimmers got on board for the remix, that is an actualization of the original, because they are fans of the band. They included their version of the Adonis classic “No Way Back” on their Fabric compilation after playing Lisbon’s Lux where Zé Pedro Moura, the bass player from Pop Dell’Arte, is also a resident DJ. After that, the connection was obvious and this remix is further proof of that.
The Glimmers, of course, do not need any further introduction: they are among the finest crafters of sounds for the modern dancefloor and have here taken a classic and brought it to the 21st century.

All the people who read this blog knows that im really bad writing English...
But, ok, it doesnt mater... I think the music speaks by himself!

I NEED HELP (because of my bad english)!!!

Ive got to get a name for a party that im gonna start to do frequently... I want a name who have something around "EDIT", for ex. the Greg Wilson release on Tirk: "Credit To The Edit".

My idea is to open a "contest"to all who have some idea for the name to my party.

The "winner name" will win one CD-R with some exclusive and personal Edits, and my record when he is released.

Thanks to all of you!

(AVI) Part 4

Discognosis is a rare and obscure production by two of the greatest disco producers: Rinder & Lewis.
This was an experimental project where the sound isn't well definited. The opening track is psychedelic disco with a horror theme. "Poison Ivy" is more pop, where as "One On One" brushes up soundtrack sounds. "Good Time Man" and "Love Shortage" are good tracks which could be exploited better. "Step By Step" is the big one: wonderful disco track with repetitive vocals, piano and hypnotic arrangements. The only defect is its shortness: i've always wondered whether the 12" exists!! ...

AVI Part 4
Taken from the album "Discognosis" [AVL 6026] (1977)
Discognosis - Step By Step

... A few years later...
Todd Terje see this and decide to make himself the 12" version... (Nice as always..) (My friend from American Athete Blog (Check him on my favorites), already post that edit, but the link is down.. so new chance to get it!)

What A Wonderful Edit

Kat returns with DJ only ZE-edits of two tracks from the influential label that fused the parallel NYC dance and punk scenes to create a new sound that they aptly christened Mutant Disco. Kid Creole and Material are the artists getting the once over from DJ Greg Wilson, the oracle on this vital and misunderstood period in music. Having already paid Credit to the Edit, Greg Wilson tastefully reconstructs Kid Creole and the Coconuts’ 1981 hit ‘I'm a Wonderful Thing, Baby’. Emphasising the driving piano and mid-tempo beats, ‘Wonderful’ is in safe hands with Greg Wilson in control. On the flip we find Material’s ‘Over and Over’ being edited by Greg, putting the funk into jazz-funk. Material were an early Bill Laswell project that delved deep into dancefloor-orientated jazz.

I Want You

George Duke showed a great deal of promise early in his career as a jazz pianist and keyboardist. Inspired early on by Les McCann, he worked with a trio in San Francisco during the mid-'60s. In 1969, Duke accompanied Jean-Luc Ponty, recording with the violinist. After eight months with Don Ellis' Orchestra, he joined Frank Zappa for much of 1970. Duke spent 1971-1972 with Cannonball Adderley and then returned to Zappa for 1973-1975. In 1975, he worked with Sonny Rollins, co-led a group with Billy Cobham, and then formed a funk band (the Clarke-Duke Project) with Stanley Clarke. In the 80's he became well sought after producer for Philp Bailey, Stephanie Mills, Rufus, Jeffrey Osborne and others...
