DREAM SEQUENCE - LOVE IS A MINEFIELD (Sounds like the 80s)

Hello and welcome back.... New music from Electronic outfit 'Dream Sequence' with the track 'Love is a Minefield' (This is the instrumental version)

With hints of Frankie Goes to Hollywood, The Cars and even The Eurythmics (The middle 8 section synths were done in 3D setting, similar to the track 'Ball and Chain'.. A good set of headphones is recommended) ... This, I Think, is Dream Sequence best work to date.

This track is free to Download for a limited time..

A vocal version will be released soon..

Awesome sounds.

KEN DAVIS (IQ) - UNIVERSE IN TIME (Lost Hit)

Hello and welcome back.... I have been a huge fan of Ken Davis music since the late 80s.

After leaving school around 1987, I brought my first camera and ventured into the world...

During the late 80s (88-89) I traveled around several places in Sydney ( Darling Harbour, Circular Quay, Australia's Wonderland) and even World Expo 88, Brisbane QLD... Just about every weekend in Sydney, this guy surrounded by Synthesizers was belting out these songs, I loved it, so raw, so much energy...That guy behind the Synths was 'Ken Davis' and even 40 or so years later, he is still going.



Going back to 1985, Ken Davis was in a band called 'IQ' (ex The Hush) and spawned a few hits, one of those tracks was the very futuristic "Universe in Time", recorded for TV show 'Sounds' with Donny Sutherland.

KEN DAVIS (IQ) - UNIVERSE IN TIME  (Ken is in orange)



Another awesome track called 'Life in Tokyo' originally known as 'Pop Song' (written by Ken Davis)

KEN DAVIS (IQ) - LIFE IN TOKYO



Later towards the 90s and beyond Ken Davis has made a name for himself creating music for the Soul and Mind... New Age / Relaxation sounds using Natural Wonders of this world... check out the links for more on this amazing artist and composer.

S'EXPRESS - MANTRA FOR A STATE OF MIND (12" & Remix Week)

Hello and welcome back... Another awesome song to fire into the 12" and Remix week... UK sensation S'Express with parts 1 & 2 of 'Mantra for a state of Mind'. This song was huge in nightclubs in the late 80s.
Released in 1989, music producer 'Mark Moore' was the brain behind S'Express', using various sampling techniques mixed with Synthesizers, This music was like nothing we had heard of before..
The rare (ish) parts 1 & 2 goes for around 11 mins but gets better and better as it progresses, def recommending  listening with a good set of headphones exp towards the ending...
Enjoy

KYLIE MINOGUE - LOCOMOTION (12" & Remix Week)

Hello and welcome back.... This one took me ages to find, really rare version. This is the Australian Girl meets Boy Mix... I used to have this version on vinyl.
Its the Locomotion but with a male singer added as well, and then there's the Chug,Chug Chugga Chug Chug bit around 1.40 that sounds mad...

Kylie was best known as her stint in Australian TV show 'Neighbours'  as squeaky clean good girl mechanic 'Charlene Mitchell' before being signed to Mushroom records after singing 'The Locomotion' as an encore at a local football club concert.

Locomotion went to No1 in 9 country's including Australia and the U.S back in 1988....

TEARS FOR FEARS - PALE SHELTER (12" & Remix Week)

Hello and welcome back.... Another excellent song for 12" inch & Remix Week, this time from UK band 'Tears For Fears'

Taken from possibly one of the best albums in the 80s "The Hurting", Pale Shelter has been released and re-released 3 times now (1982, 83 & 85)... but, I never get sick of hearing it.

Pale Shelter made it to No5 in the UK music charts (No 12 in Canada).. this was the 1983 release. 

The 12" version really breaks down the guitars, synths and beats in an almost hypnotic way, so good...

ENJOY

TEARS FOR FEARS - PALE SHELTER  (12" Extended)  (Thanks to Zeldaartist for the video)





SONG LYRICS (So you can sing along)

How can I be sure ?
When your intrusion is my illusion
How can I be sure
When all the time you changed my mind
I asked for more and more
How can I be sure
When you don't give me love
You gave me Pale shelter
You don't give me love
You give me cold hands
And I can't operate on this failure
When all I want to be is
Completely in command
How can I be sure
For all you say you keep me waiting
How can I be sure
When all you do is see me through
I asked for more and more
How can I be sure
I've been here before
There is no why, no need to try
I thought you had it all
I'm calling you, I'm calling you
I ask for more and more
How can I be sure

MAN 2 MAN MEET MAN PARRISH - MALE STRIPPER (Lost Hit)

Hello and welcome back.... Awesome Hi-Nrg music from New York, America 'Man 2 Man' (also know as Man To Man)

3 brothers started in the late 70s / early 80s, brothers being Paul Zone, Miki Zone, and Mandy Zone and formed the band 'The Fast' (1976-82)

The mid 80s saw the band change names to 'Man 2 Man' (was going to be 'Man's Favourite Sports' but that name was taken)... Really??

So, Man 2 Man was born and spawned this massive hit in 1987 (it was originally released in 86) but re-releasing this track saw it climb to No4 on the U.K music charts.

Sadly just before the re-release in 1987 one of the brothers died (Miki Zone) of a AIDS related death and the band name then changed to 'Man to Man' for the latter part of the 80s.

Such an awesome song, love the voice vocoder, crank it up...

Hello and welcome back.... New single for Holly Johnson (Frankie goes to Hollywood) called 'In and out of Love'.

Holly's vocals are outstanding in this brilliant new track, from his album 'Europa' (out now).

DREAM SEQUENCE - I AM A CYLON (XTimelord Dance Edit) (Sounds like the 80s)

Hello and welcome back.... I'm a huge fan of the 80s series of 'Battlestar Galactica' and a particular Cylon called 'CYE'...

For those that don't know, Cye sacrificed himself for Starbuck in the episode 'Return of Starbuck' (S01Ep10)

So Australian Music Producer 'Dream Sequence' with help from 'XTimelord' wrote this track.

See if you can hear a particular sound used by 'Michael Jackson' that was made by Dream Sequence on the 'Fairlight Synthesizer' for this track..

Hello and welcome back.... Continuing with our Italo Disco week with old and new tracks explored, its a musical feast for your ears.. and yes, hopefully a Mixtape at the end to download and enjoy on your MP3 player...


NEW

DEAN CORPORATION - APP ME

Not much is known about this outfit "Dean Corporation" but this track kicks, I think they maybe from Holland because they go thru 'Beach Club Records' which is in Holland.... I could be wrong. Enjoy the track 'App Me'

KOTO - TIME

'Koto' is possibly one of the best known for Italo Disco / Spacesynth in the 80s with their huge hit 'Dragons Legend' but since I have already featured that song on this site, I will look at the track 'Time', another huge fav of mine.

Released in 1989 'Time' was from the 'Masterpieces' album.

Koto is an Italian synthpop group that originally consisted of Anfrando Maiola and Stefano Cundari (dec), later with the Dutch composer Michiel van der Kuy (Music Producer - Laserdance).

Sadly Stefano Cundari passed away sometime during mid - late 90s ?

Love this track, the chorus is stunning, so many amazing sounds.. enjoy

M - POP MUZIK (Lost Hit)

Hello and welcome back... Smashing into the music charts in 1979, U.K outfit 'M' made it to No 2 in the U.K and a slather of No 1 spots including Australia, Germany, Canada, Sweden and the U.S

'M' was fronted by singer,/ producer 'Robin Scott'.
Other musicians who played on the track were his brother Julian Scott (on bass), then unknown keyboardist Wally Badarou (Level 42), Canadian synth programmer John Lewis (who died of AIDS in 1985) and Brigit Novik, (backing vocals).

The single 'Pop Muszik' was from the album "New York • London • Paris • Munich"
Other musicians to play on this album include Phil Gould (Drums - later of Level 42), Gary Barnacle (Saxophone) and ... wait for it... David Bowie with occasional Handclaps, YES..David Bowie (He lives close to where they were recording the album and popped in for a cuppa*)




For me, I love this song... Its early 80s Disco meets New Wave and with the catchy phrase 'New York, London, Paris, Munich, everybody's talkin' `bout Pop Musik'.. Its hard to beat.
