Hypnosis - Bormaz (Todd Terje Edit) (alt link)

Hypnosis were an Italian synth-disco band from the early '80s, born in Parma and founded by Stefano Cundari. They were particularly popular in Germany, thanks to a Vangelis cover of Pulstar. Bormaz and Oxygene were tow tracks released on a 12" in 1983 with the latter being written by Jean-Michel Jarre. Bormaz receives the subtle edit treatment from Todd Terje here. About as catchy as it can get, incredible.

909d1sco - Donnerstag (alt link)

909d1sco - Alien Attakk (alt link)

Boys Noize - Arcade Robot (alt link)

Archigram - Padre

909d1sco is/was a lesser known alias of Boys Noize. Under the 909d1sco moniker Alex Ridha released the extremely limited vinyl only bootleg entitled 'Donnerstag'. It really is quite special, instantly calling to mind as strange as it may seem, The Field, with its consecutively looped segments over a very dancefloor friendly beat creating a tremendous feel good dance track that offers a firm nod in the direction of italo-disco. The other track Alien Attakk samples the best part of Lipps Inc's Funky Town along with the intro Boys Noize's track Arcade Robot (which in turn sounds like a danced up version of an old fave by Archigram). Not half as good as Donnerstag but still worth a listen.

Mix number 2 - Minimal

Compared to my last offering this mix stays a lot more within the confines of minimal/tech-house and delivers up some great new tunes as well as a couple of old favourites. I hope you enjoy it and can forgive the occasional slip up in mixing! But all in all I think it's quite a good listen.
