Vaughn Monroe first recorded this yuletide classic back in the 40´s, and it has since been covered by everyone from Old Blue Eyes to Boyz 2 Men and Jessica Simpson.

The second track was made famous by the timeless classic Christmas movie Home Alone and is a rockin´ firecracker of a tune.

Happy Chanukah!

I´ve been listening and loving this song for a while now. It´s the disco version or cover version (if you will) of that Yardbirds song I posted a week or so ago. It´s the perfect dance tune, and it works with every crowd be they hipsters or hiphopers.

MP3 Chilly - For Your Love (Alt. Link)

Part one is mid-tempo funk and boogie, part two will feature uptempo disco-boogie. Enjoy and subscribe to the Podcast..."

DOG favorite and loyal follower and friend Jens alias Me Are The World blessed the DOG with a holiday season greeting in form of an eclectic mix. A few welcome Norwegian numbers and some electro pop gems serve nicely as a warm up to the busy season ahead. The mix will work perfectly in the background while you wrap up your daddies Black-n-Decker or mummies nicotine patches, or just as a friend to warm you up along with your heavily spiked eggnog.

Also check out Jens´s duo project Forest Fives for more of that Christmas spirit.

The Netherlands seems to be a breeding ground for itlao-disco inspired electro funkers. One of which is Alden Tyrell. He stays true to the rules of ol´ time electro and takes it beyond into the future where it was originally heading before other people (who won´t be mentioned here) retrofied it.

MP3 Alden Tyrell - Knockers (Alt. Link)

MP3 Alden Tyrell - Digger (Alt. Link)

Plus a mix he did full of beautiful italo with Moustache Records head honcho David Vunk courtesy of Valerie.

Wooden Shjips is a psychedelic rock band out of San Fran (!!). They try their best to sound like the doors, and succeed in my opinion in sounding better (I´m not really a fan of The Doors). So enjoy this 60´s throwback jam.

Egg & Chips

Rough Drawings are two gentlemen from London, England who make music and dj (as many of us do). Their myspace does not have any productions up yet, but they say the tracks are coming soon. They have even been nice enough to agree to do an exclusive mix for this blog, and even send some of the tracks over when they´re done.

The exclusive mix will be coming up in January or February of next year, until then you might enjoy this mix they did as a little taste of things to come.

I´ve been hitting the books pretty hard lately since I have my exams coming up (I have one tomorrow actually). Anyways, I´m one of those people who can´t read without music in the background (or foreground). The music has to be music that can blend in nicely and be overlooked (so not too much vocals). So I decided to do a mix I could have in the background whilst I studied. It´s a kind of spacey mix with hints o disco, house and Johnny Cash. So if you´re like me and needs your tunes at all times, please download and enjoy.

MP3 Chevy Chaser - Study Hard Mix (Alt. Link)


Black Leotard Front - Casual Friday
Stratus - Footprints
Bot´Ox - Grand Central
DMX Krew - I Won´t Forget
Hitmeyer, Inc. - Itune Aline
Homerun - The Killer Storm
Maelstrom - Petrichor
Leroy Hanghofer - Pin (Jaques Lu Cont Remix)
Allez Allez - She´s Stirring Up (An Optimo Drum Attack Mix)
DJ Sneak - Acid Talks
Osbourne - ´Bout Ready To Jack
Golden Bug - Captain Shaker
Chilly - For Your Love
Simian Mobile Disco - Hot Dog (Cosmo Vitelli Remix)
Johnny Cash - Get Rythem (Tomboy Remix)
Italcimenti - Somewhat You Need
Azoto - San Salvador (12" Instrumental Mix)
Ian Pierce - Superfuzz (Disco Mix)
Wall Of Voodoo - Ring Of Fire

This other mix is even more understated. It´s what the soundtrack to my imaginary movie would sound like, where Lindsey Buckingham, Beethoven, Angelo Badalamenti and Stevie Wonder go hand in hand like gay lovers.

1984 is the year and Darryl Hall & John Oats are at the top of their game. On the album Big Bam Boom one song sticks out, it is of course "Out Of Touch".

I must be humble and admit that I´m a shameless follower of fads (well, only when it comes to music). I was all over B-More and the whole hip-hop meets dance craze, as was I excited when I saw that there were people out there who shared my obsession with cheesy 80´s music and aesthetic. They were ofcourse the Valerie mob. They put the roaming synths of 80´s movies and TV-Shows back on the musical map, not that people hadn´t drawn inspiration from this before, but not in a shameless way like the Valerie kids did. I did a post on it almost exactly a year ago and called it "a new electronic movement", which it kind of was at that time. However lack of originality and forward thinking made all these guys sound very much alike. They had a few intoxicating hits, but I couldn´t tell one from the other after a while, and kind of lost interest.

Now over a year after their "breakthrough" Valerie releases its first album, by Valerie blog founder College called "Secret Diary". I´m doing this post because I like the cover (which is very much inspired by Brian De Palma´s unforgettable 1984 classic Body Double) and because Anoraak and himself are playing here in Oslo on Friday. 8 months ago I would be truly excited, but now I´m so so.

I´m posting a track I posted before by Tangerine Dream, because it´s kind of the same sound only better. If you want College go to the Valerie blog and buy his album here.

MP3 Tangerine Dream - Logos, Pt. 1 (B) (Alt. Link)



Germany´s Silicon Soul (not to be confused with UK´s Silicone Soul) released this gem originally in 1981, but it got renewed interest a few years back and was signed to and re-released on Disko B. The title pretty much says it all, it´s a groovy repetitive beat that might make some sleepy, others annoyed and some people might just wanna dance.

MP3 Silicon Soul - Who Needs Sleep Tonight? (Alt. Link)

Those of you who downloaded the stellar Sleepwalk mix will recognize this track from there. It is a beautiful and moving song which is stripped of bass and only left with a guitar and piano and Winston Tong´s beautiful vocals.

Tuxedomoon released the album Holy Wars in 1985, and the track is taken from there.

MP3 Tuxedomoon - In A Manner Of Speaking (Alternative Link)

Buy the album at itunes.



I-f the Deutsch electro machine behind Space Invaders Are Smoking Grass mixed it up in the Hague probably not too long ago. It´s a collection of electro, freestyle, disco and house, but all on a very mechanical (in a good way!) level. Also it´s very old school as you can see from the tracklist.

Loud E did an edit of Love Robot´s 1978 disco banger Slaves Of Pleasure. He called it "Robot Love".

Over ten years have passed since Daft Punk did the coveted Essential Mix, and a lot has changed in that time. Daft Punk have become electronic pop music icons who hide behind robot masks and have been the basis for the change that has occurred in recent years not only in house and electronic dance music, but also in pop music as a whole.

The mix is a great selection of tunes from house music past, and a reminder that everything was better before distortion.
