I love this guy and have done a million edits of his stuff already, but here’s one more. I cut out most of the vocals, and slowed it down into a New Beat / EBM-type tune instead of the Hi-NRG vibe it originally had. Hope it comes in handy!
Here’s an edit of a forgotten Euro-pop tune with some jackin’ drum programming. VERY CORNY and not the kind of thing you’ll be able to play every set, but I love it to death so I thought I’d share 😀 😀 😀
“Instant Love” is a really fun (and super-slept-on) Dutch space-disco / hi-NRG track that I never hear out for some reason. Hopefully this will fix that! For the edit I took the best parts of the original & the dub mix, extended the drum break, and made the beginning and end more DJ friendly.
There was a lot of sci-fi space disco that came out of Europe in the late 1970s…some of it was DOPE but most of it kind of felt like novelty records. “Space Rock” is one of those tunes that always had the potential to be a banger, but then had all this unnecessary shit layered on top (string section, sound effects) that made it sound like a theme song to some sci-fi cop show. Also, the drummer’s tempo was so variable that it was excruciating to DJ with. I stripped it back, cut out all the bullshit, and fixed the timing. Glad to finally be able to play this one!
I’ve always had a soft spot for dystopian post-apocalyptic sci-fi robot disco, and “The Ultimate Warlord” is one of the big tunes in that hyper-specific sub-sub-sub-genre. That having been said, the original has this super-corny robot vocal that can scare away certain dancefloors. So I made an edit that cuts that part out (but leaves the other, only-slightly-less-corny vocal), extends the instrumental bits, and adds a dubby filter breakdown.
Here’s a French euro-disco tune I’ve always loved, with really great synths, a killer horn section, and some holiday-appropriate lovey-dovey sentiments to boot. The original had embarrassing euro-macho-dude verses and a breakdown that zoomed by way too fast, so I stretched out the bits I like and cut out the bits I don’t. Merry Christmas!
A pulsing Euro-disco thumper from a handlebar-moustached German macho-man super-producer (but not the one you’re thinking of). I cut out the vocals and emphasized the weird dubby parts to make this more of a dark Italo tune.
Everybody’s heard this thumping, piano-driven Euro-disco mega-hit, but probably at a grocery store rather than a nightclub. It’s really really cheesy. I stretched out the good bits and took out the worst bits so it’ll work better on a dancefloor.
A somewhat overlooked cut from one of my fave Euro-Disco producers, with a vocal from the “Hell hath no fury” school of shade-throwing. The breakdown on this tune is SO GOOD, but it seems to whiz by in an instant on the original, so I drew it out, added some effects, and tried to focus on the best bits.
