September Sunday night in notes

If I had to pick a tune that reflects how a September Sunday night feels like, I probably couldn't think of anything closer to this mood than this piece of awesomeness.

Bitter, sweet, melancholic, cuddling, emotional, slothful, cool. All these mixed together and put to notes from the other hemisphere once again, by this talented dude, Edward Vanzet, who is about to release his first album titled "Lichen".

Have I ever told you how much I love Australian producers? I bet I have.

Coco disco

It's that time of year again when I'm bored of all my old car cds, mp3 files, records and tunes and I'm desperately seeking for something fresh to get me going again. And guess what.

Found it!
Fresh EP from Alien Disco Sugar, a producer that's definitely growin' into my favorite ones, making good use of the disco sound with a little bit of tickle at Deodato's "Keep on movin'" and Gayle Adams' "Love fever", followed by the coconut feeling of Coco and the inspiration of Good Old Love.

Thumbs up. Both of them.

*Find here and here older posts with edits on Deodato's and Gayle Adams' mentioned tracks.

Freaking back

After two weeks full of pictures, sand, laughter, swimming, sun, rest, food, drinks, books, coffee and loads of good music and love, I'm back to my base, charged and all, carrying among other things an ear infection as a souvenir. So I might have a defective right ear at the moment, but I can certainly hear the sweet sound of The Emotions.

The sisters along with a little help from Earth Wind & Fire really get it on. My ear just popped!

Beach, please!

If you asked me two days ago, I'd say this is the worst summer ever. But when all go wrong, something has to be right, right? Right. So with the so fully anticipated vacation on the way, vacation which I came very close to missing completely this year, I finally feel it's time to just let everything be and head to a fine beach, with good company and the best music I can gather up in a very short time. And this is the beat I wanna follow in this year's summer vacation.

So long! See you in a couple of weeks, mates. Have a great time y'all!

Il lupo rocks

Sometimes I can't even believe my (clogged) ears when it comes to '70s music.

First heard of it by Psychemagik (check out post here). As you can see it wasn't possible that this piece of utter inspiration wouldn't find its way into this blog and have a special presentation.

Put together by Italian musicians Ivano Fossati and Oscar Prudente in 1973, this tune couldn't but be discovered 40 years later by young producers and be served to all the passionate listeners out there.

**Warning: This is a heart-attack provoking tune. Be cautious.

To pray or not to pray

Just wondering... Is praying any effective for those who practice it and the other people around them? I mean, would praying do any good to, I don't know, all these lost souls by two plane crashes in two weeks time? Would it prevent the bombing in Gaza? Would it save all those kids, mothers and fathers? Would it make us all brothers and sisters? Would it make money something no one would care for? If it would, let me know. I'll start prayin' too. Till then, I'll leave it to Harold Melvin & the Blue Notes.

Disco with a twist

Don't know about your summer, but mine ain't lookin' good so far. There are a few things, however, that keep me in high spirits when all point to the opposite direction. One of these is -take a wild guess- music. This compilation handpicked by Funk Hunk, ready to be released on July the 25th by Handshakes Records, easily managed to make me forget about shit going on, smile and start some finger snapping and shoulder moving when all else seriously failed.

I can't even begin to point out how many tracks in this compilation made me stop for a minute and enjoy. Really enjoy. (the Dopeshoes edit, oh-my-god).

Thank you Funk Hunk for putting this whole thing together and spreading the word. Thumbs up till they hurt!

*Find the whole thing here. Bet your thumbs will rise too.
