La Dolce Luca: Pt 1
A while back, I asked for any suggestions of sites to add to my blog roll. Generous commenter Luca has offered some suggestions, which I thought we’d feature or the next few Sundays. Today, The Italo Job.
The Italo Job says it’s Italian DJs and Producers Blog. Luca says “The Italo Job is good for finding contemporary Italo, some good edits and a lot of podcasts. It features a lot of DJs from the north-east side of Italy (Spiller, Bottin etc.).“
Like so many in the UK, my exposure to Italo began and ended in the late 80s, mainly focused around the classic Italia – Dance Music From Italy album. But techno took me and I never got round to exploring further. This is a lovely blog, full of unexpected pleasures. Here’s a couple of fine long mixes for your listening pleasure
I colori dell’Estate lasciano il posto alle sfumature sonore dell’Autunno.
Squarci di sole e ondate baleariche, il sole che rincorre alla moviola la luna.
Summer colours are replaced by autumnal sound flows.
Bursts of light and balearic waves, Sun runs after Moon in slow-motion.
Have a good listening.
