“skanky no” to “sexy pro” in 30 mins

Seal of Approval

Lori Samsel’s exercise video “Get in the Van” is the best thing I’ve heard of in a long time. Imagine Jane Fonda doing leg raises. Now imagine her doing them in time to cracked-out, blipped-out electro blaring out of a gameboy-shaped boombox. Now imagine her in outer space, on a pirate ship, under the sea and all over the universe!

Intriguing, isn’t it? Continue reading

Children + Boney M = 100% Italodisco Banger?!!!

I'm so freekin' happy.

What happens when you unleash Boney M on a bunch of cute kids?

Pure Electro Magic.

I recently picked up a CD of Italodisco hits in the bargain bin section of the internet and my favorite song by far is “Happy Song” by Baby’s Gang. This song was a number one hit in Europe twice! The first time in 1983 for Baby’s Gang in their native Italy, the second time as a cover by Boney M the following year.

Information on Baby’s Gang is scant on the internet, sources say they were on Memory Records, a minorly succesful Italo-disco label. But if Italodisco means nothing to you, think of Baby’s Gang as:

(Justice’s D.A.N.C.E. – Michael Jackson) x (Outrunners + Kavinsky + Muscles)

Which should equal EPIC in anyone’s book.

A truly happy song for the weekend.

Here is the “Extended Dancefloor Version” in 320 for you DJ’s/mp3 hustlers, I guarantee it will bring the heat at your local party.
