disco wars + victors' (in)justice


History is always written by the victors,and when it came to the disco wars on the Italo frontline of the late 70's / 80's, it was the purveyors of dodgy hi energy and soulless pop who came out on top, with the early 90's excesses of Stock, Aitken and Waterman the final, life sapping embodiment of the death of Moroder and co's original machine funk dreams.

But with the real history of Italo disco slowly emerging in the last decade, as restless young heads dig ever deeper into the vaults, forgotten heroes such as Danielle Baldelli and Beppe Loda have finally started getting the attention they long deserved.

Their shared love of everything from Afro Rhythms to the European avantgarde is now recognised as the original, multicultural, polyrhythmic foundation upon which Italo disco was built, before the relentless plasticization set in.

Having begun DJing in Brescia aged 16, Loda was resident at Gambara's soon to be legendary Typhoon club from 1980 until the club closed in the same year as the Paradise Garage, a year before acid house kicked off in 1987.

Over the last few years, Beppe's name has walked out of the history books and back into nightclubs and record collections as Scandinavian nu disco playas in particular started paying respect. His DJs sets and "Typhoon Edits" series are now popping up all over the European underground and beyond.

To mark the Egotrya remix 12 " package due soon on People in the Sky, we've got a previously unavailable 1985 Typhoon set ( below ) that 'll keep you on your toes, with everything from dripping water intro's to fast jazz pop and leftfield electronics breaking up the slo-mo grooves. Traditional "Italo classics" are notable for their absence.
