Falco - Der Komissar (The Commissioner) (1981) (buy)



Falco - Auf Der Flucht (On The Run) (1981) (buy)

Single that reached #1 in Austria, France, Germany, Italy, Japan and Spain. The guy had perfect pitch and when he turned 4 his parents gave him a baby grand piano. Whatever, the track didn't crack the top 50 in the U.S. until it was covered by British band After The Fire, but check it - sort of has that boogity vibe goin.

Oran "Juice" Jones - The Rain (Long Version) (1986) (buy)

Proto hip hopera vibes all over this one. If the audio doesn't convince you, the video should. If that doesn't do it, check what these guys did with it.

SPK - Metropolis (1984) (buy)

Liking this track a lot, but it's harder to hear the lead pipe on scrap metal and live fires with all of the studio polish.

R.J.'s Latest Arrival - (Aerobic Dancin) Keep Dancin (Instrumental) (1982) (buy)

Decline continues - first up of this was sans bass due to alternate ripping utensil.

Do it in a strange place, even in outerspace. One of these guys did it in Detroit and formed Slum Village's label.

Oscar G - Movin On Up (1993) (buy)



Oscar G - Space Age (1993) (buy)

Botched the earlier post of this - the second playback was a duplicate of the first. Oops.

Side B of Oscar G's 1993 effort Grooves Of My Crib Part 2. First track has this psuedo Flatbeat thing going on, second one has everything you need and nothing you don't. Apparently the original Oscar the Grouch was orange, not green. Who knew?

Lots gone on since the last post. For instance, found this record in my apartment with no writing on it and a bunch of vaguely familiar tracks (anybody?). Breaks galore on the second one.

Group 87 - The Death of Captian Nemo (1993) (buy)



Group 87 - Pleasure In Progress (1993) (buy)

Slept on this rip of 1993's A Career In Dada Processing for way too long. The title track popped up on Robotsinheat a while back, and these tracks together go a long way to predicting entire modern subgenre phyla.
