The Italo Job 5th birthday

The Italo Job 5th birthday

The Italo Job is 5 years old.

Five years of passion for music, five yers of dancing and smiles in front of the console.
Five years searching for new italian talents: DJs, producers and artistic projects made in Italy, without forgetting about old pioneers.

Staying in front of our laptop is not our primary mission. So we have chosen 5 dates to keep on our mission in the real world.
Cause we believe in magic of music, beats that touch our hearts and power of dancefloor.

Alexander Robotnick - Problèmes D'Amour

Alexander Robotnick – Problèmes D’Amour

It’s thursday, so we go back in time and we listen to great music that makes history of italian electronic scene.
For our weekly #ThrowbackThursday, this time we have choosen a song: “Problèmes d’amour” by Alexander Robotnick.

“Problèmes d’amour” is a cult track produced by Maurizio Dami in 1983. It quickly became an international hit, bringing italo sounds all over the world.
“Problèmes d’amour” has been remixed among others by François K, Carl Craig, Kenny Dixon Jr aka Moodymann.
After over 30 years is definitely one of the most important and most played track of italian electronic music production.
A real timeless classic.

Listen to the B side of the 12″, probably a less known version, but very charming!

Here a free download to celebrate its 30th anniversary

DJ Rocca – Destination to the sun

Is about to leave a new cosmic journey by DJ Rocca toward the sun.
A pressing bassline and drums rhythm guide us into this spatial trip, surrounded by a carpet of synth.
DJ Rocca masterfully blends mechanical structure of italo disco with fluffy and soft feature of synth pop using a perfect Cosmic attitude.
Includes also a version by Leo Mas and Fabrice, that have rivisited the song with their classical touch.

The EP is out now for Italian records and distributed by Kompakt.

Dario G [italo disco 80 legend]

 

Dax DJ
His slogan is “may the funk be with you!” that’s saying a lot about a boundless passion Dario Bedin, DAX DJ at turntables, has for the music that he essentially defines as something religious.
A dj and collector of a ton of vinyl records who has created/promoted Jazz Not Dead festival and some of the most interesting realities of the contemporary underground scene – including also Music Is The Key – which highlight Vicenza as a sounding-board for electronic independent music followers .

Listen to his djset @ Crocodiles In Venice party on 27.11.2013

 
Kumano - You Got It (Stephen Purple Got The Edit)

Kumano – You Got It (Stephen Purple Got The Edit)

We love Stephen Purple edits!
This time Stephen re worked Randy Kumano’s song “You Got It”. He has cut male and female vocals and re-built the bassline. The result is this italo funky disco floorfiller!

 
Dj Rocca & N2B - Mr Rossi's Backpain [disco, funk, italo,edit, Vasco Rossi]

Dj Rocca & N2B – Mr Rossi’s Backpain [disco, funk, italo,edit, Vasco Rossi]

An awesome disco edit of a Vasco Rossi‘s song includd in his 1982 album “Vado al massimo”.
Who made this fantastic edit? Obviously 2 great producers and djs as DJ ROCCA and NIC2BIRILLI.

We can’t stop to dance to this incredible disco sound!

 

Daniele Patucchi - People Come In (Stephen Purple Piano Sinth Edit)

We already know Stephen Purple passion for rare italo disco and funky stuff.
This time he reworked “People come in” by Daniele Patucchi and made it mixable!

 

Cristalli Liquidi


Last thursday we were in Milan at Replay Laserblast Party. Obviously we had so much fun, in particular when James Murphy (DFA / LCD Soundsystem) was mixing awesome music for the crowd.
The day after we were searching for cool new music and we found this great italo disco tune inspired by LCD Soundsystem song “You Wanted A Hit“:
