Jeremy Campbell - "Ryuichi Sakamoto & The Kakutogi Session - Summer Nerves" (1979)


"A wonderful record and a classic in the fake reggae cannon. Hard to pick a favorite track. He was obviously feeling pretty irie on Gonna Go to I Colony, but the vocoderized version of Sister Sledge's You're a Friend to Me will wrench your robot-heart. Honorable mention goes to the more disco Theme For Kakutougi which was the theme song for wrestling on Japanese TV."

Steve Lee (Above Machine/The Project Club) - "Mr. Fingers ‎– What About This Love" (1989)


"To choose a record which represents me is an incredibly hard thing to do. I collect a lot of old and new music of many many different genres. However, I think this one sums up my whole style, swagger and passion for underground dance music. It's never ever left my record box in over 20+ years. I've closed endless endless parties with it and I think if you played this to any one of my close friends... They would simply smile and say Mr Lee. I would dance with my mum to this record, I would hug my girlfriend whilst dancing on the dancefloor and most of all share some hugely warm cuddles from people on the floor. It doesn't get much better than this in my book - And utterly utterly timeless. This is my record of choice and one you simply cannot ignore."

- The Project Jukebox (many nice surprise tracks, glad i saw Steaua de mare "In Afara Programului" posted there)
- The Project Club on Discogs (for me "El Mar Y La Luna" is one of the best records of 2011, three versions, all special, but for me the Shrinkwrap version is just perfect)

Thanks Steve! :)

Hard Ton - "Malaria! vs. Chicks On Speed ‎– Kaltes Klares Wasser" (2001)


Last week I had the chance to see for the first time a Hart Ton performance in Bucharest in Control Club and not many words can describe what i have witnessed, my jaw dropped from the beginning of the concert and Hard Ton was BEAUTIFUL! Some might find this exagerated, but the closest comparison that came in mind was a huge orchid that was dancing under the changing colours of the spotlights...i'm not kidding! :) for me it was one of the best performances I have seen.
 
Really honoured that we snapped a photo for the blog and Hard Ton's choice was Malaria! vs. Chicks On Speed ‎– Kaltes Klares Wasser.
 
"The remix by The Modernist was an anthem for us. Useless to say we've chosen that record mostly for the amazing cover (it's actually really the pussy of one of the girls of the band)"

Another gift from Hard Ton is this track:

Sergio Rizzolo - "Danny Darrow - Doomsday" (1980)


Photography: Emmalisa Pauly, 2012
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
"My favourite record is Danny Darrow's "Doomsday" from 1980. It's one of the greatest disco records ever made, because it's a perfect vision of the future (or the lack of one to be exact!). When the world eventually comes to an end - by the hands of a giant alien warrior - we should all "get down to it" and "drown in our juices of love" as Danny puts it (which can be seen happening on the amazing sleeve artwork by Charles Universal).
Match that slab of wisdom with a 133 BPM beat, rock guitars, a sax-solo and about a 4 minutes long synthesizer workout at the end and I've got all I ever need to get through the end times"
