Nightless - Crazy Night (Remix) (1984)

Italians do it better! Classy production from the mid-crazy-eighties of Italy by the one off Project Nightless. Slow and cold funk grooves evoke an irresistable feel of wavish goodness and the piano in the end section is just rounding up things masterly. An always in demand record, not for nothing!

SA. 23.06.2012: bleepgeeks w/ TRAXX (NATION/CHICAGO) @ Cabaret Eden

Traxx, a musician like no other.

Not content to be labeled as merely a DJ, a producer, or even a DJ/Producer, Melvin Oliphant III aka Traxx is a lover of music — one with a passion so intense that it overcomes genre divides to weave an altogether original, exciting, and multi-textured musical fabric which envelops both the avid clubber and the home listener, as well as everyone in between.

As a self-described "artist of sound," Traxx morphs musical compositions into distinctive, highly emotional interpretations — he is, indeed, an innovator, and one who reshapes music into a progressive,forward-thinking document which defies classification and invites analysis and discussion. From eclectic and avant-garde tunes to old school jack tracks and lounge grooves, he hears it all without discrimination, pretension or elitism.

Spinning deep at bleepgeeks for the second time on Saturday!

Skillful american production with an all around Italo flair. Swinging synths and funky vocoders bring the mood! The video does the rest. A real vinyl diggers tip. Easy to find, cheap to get!

FRESHLY Squeeeeezed & Homemade : The Opus Leopard Band Project

"Falco meets Kraftwerk in 2012", (Maximilian, Bavaria Germany when listening to "Testosteron")

It all started last year on a warm summer night. Florian Schröder unexpectedly called me up to go out for a walk. I just have randomly met him before but as my eyes needed some rest from computer work i was happy to do so.
After a reasonable amount of smalltalk he started to mention a new project he was working on: A new approach of Falco styled lyrics. He almost immediately started to sing some verses and i was so intrigued that i couldn`t resist to ask him for a shot on doing the instrumentals.
9 Months later we are quite happy about this 6 track mini album. It`s hard to say if without an understanding of the german lyrics the songs still kick ass. i hope they do. otherwise: that might be your last and only reason to refresh your german school lessons :-)

Sa. 16.06.2012: Innergaze and Steve Summers @ Eden, Ulm

Innergaze *Live (100% Silk/Cititrax/New York)
Steve Summers (Clone Records/NYC)

"Innergaze drag us slightly further back into the glorious cradle of dance music. Their music, crushed and static, obscured by sound. EBM, coldwave, early techno fight it out for dominance of the drum machine. Casually brutal vocals force their way through from the Death Factory. As if Chris & Cosey's dalliances with the Eurythmics had conjured a restless pioneering demon to duet with Annie Lenox but had instead ended up consuming her. Celestial synths coexisting with the industrial landscape bellow. Innergaze's We Are Strange Loops (from whence this came) is the second release on the already excellent Touch Your Life Records. Featuring Jason of Rhythm Based Lovers (more on them soon), Aurora who did the classic "O Yea" video by Beautiful Swimmers and mastered by Veronica, she of Minimal Wave Records ownership (and fame) this is full of positive 20JFG karma. You really couldn't possibly go wrong."

Gino Palatino - Vendetta A Parigi

Authentic italo in the mood of Pino D'angio. Serious instrumentation on funny lyrics. I've put also the back cover up. There's the german translation in the left column. Simply click to enlarge. This track has also been aired in Germany! The audience was really into it, haha!
