Love as always Take A Chance! DJ Rocca / I love that oldscool sound! Magda Finally! I’ve been waiting for a new installment of this super compilation series since I got my hands on Elaste Vol. 2 compiled by Tom Wieland. Vol. 3. not only keeps up with the quality of the previous installments but also takes it into another direction. Well done! Bag Of Goodies
Info: Three years has gone by since the last Elaste compilation. In this time the virus of cosmic disco (or afrofunky as they say in Italy) has spread round the place – giving me lots of good feedback and fan-letters. Thank you! I have spent these three years looking for more avantgardistic, galactic sounding disco, proto-techno, electronic new wave, and cheesy slow motion pop… and I found it. For the third chapter of Elaste, I have combined a wider spectrum of what might be cosmic disco. Old mix-cassettes from the early 1980s (especially those recorded by Beppe Loda and Daniele Baldelli) have an ongoing thrill – the music is so modern, so special, rare, and far ahead of its time. Thinking about the time and the impact that they made, it’s no wonder that thousands of fans were waiting outside Discoteca Cosmic, Typhoon and other clubs to hear a surprising mix that could be anything from early German electronics to cumbia. It was surely a glorious time, DJs in Italy had the freedom to experiment with music, and the records they played. The crowd expected it – asked for it and welcomed them to play crazier than any other DJ. Almost 30 years on and this time and this music is still an inspiration for DJs, collectors and music lovers. Hoping that you enjoy my collection, I am sure we will meet somewhere in a psychedelic nightclub in this galaxis.
