    someone played me this tune a few days ago: brilliant leftfield japanese/armenian electropop from 1983...

    Another great League tune, nice and dubby.

    Used to play this all the time.

    the pete shelly number is called 'witness the change'.

    I used to play this a lot also.

    not a great fan of italo but this is a stonker, more slow-mo electro warehouse rave than italo imo.

     
  9. ska invita

    ska invita back on the other side

    I heard dubstep producer kode 9 play a 4hr set once - the first hour was seemingly all 80s 12inch b-sides - really interesting stuff, but i didnt recognise anything apart from one Cameo instrumental/dub < not much help to this thread, but it suggested there is lots of stuff out there. Maybe some early stuff on Mute Records?

    I guess some of the Sly and Robbie 80s crossover productions too... I think Killer B knows a lot about those. Someone was telling me Sly and Robbie also produced some of the Tom Tom Club stuff.

    Killer b,

    I love that grant tune, it turns out that tune was recorded by grants backing band under the name 'the coach house rhythm section'

    Also, I thought it sounded very similar to stylo by the gorrilaz, further investigation seems like other people agree.

    i think eddy was his own backing band in this case, like prince/stevie wonder etc.

    he sued the gorillaz over that song - anyone know what came of it?

    oh really, I didn't know that.

    Check this out, just sneaking into the 80s as it's 79 but sounds every bit a bang upto date production. there's a bit in it that reminds me of a girl being whipped.

    this live version of 5 knuckle shuffle is incredible - sounds like mid-90s minimal techno...

    how about some yello, I had race/flag(?) album on tape when I was a teenager and used to listen to it constantly.

    Lost again is a killer track.

    Steph,

    That section 25 tune reminds me of front 242's sample d.

    This was on the Love & Dancing remox album. Loved this when I was a teenager.

    was it various artists?


    edit...ah;

    "Love and Dancing is a remix album released by the British synthpop band The Human League in 1982. It was released under the name "The League Unlimited ..."

    it was Martin Rushent's remix of Dare iirc

    Love & dancing is all remixes off 'dare'. The first ever remix album I believe. Well worth picking up, it's much better than the source material.

    me neither! nipple to the bottle? libertango? walking in the rain? my jamaican guy?

    moody Being alive increases risk of death.

    grace's version of nightclubbing is deffo dubby but not what I'd play but have done.

    nipple to the bottle is my fav tbh.

    libertango is quite haunting and I remember first hearing it in that harrison ford film where his wife gets kidnapped in france.
