Hello, my name is DJ Johnny, I have been collecting music and deejaying since 1995. I collect many styles of electronic music. This account is the one I use only for artists from the 80's - MAINLY italo disco and euro disco but also new wave, eurobeat/hi-nrg, and all other 1980's music that is not part of house/techno genre's.

My other account is DJ2Eclipse, and that is for new beat, acid-house, house, euro house, techno, happy hardcore, trance, eurodance, italodance, italo house, progressive house, reggae, dub, and dancehall; and all other dance genre's from mid 80's thru current, although I stopped collecting newer artists around 2005 mark, and main focus of this account is DANCE MUSIC 1988-1999. I love all electronic music w/ the exception of gabber and hardcore.

Holy shit is this a good song. Too bad nothing exists on it other than featured in the Mixage mix off Baby Records, 1984.

"Search" is a godforsaken gem. What a beauty that song is. I really like the 12" cover art here, but the real winner is that b-side. Good male vocals and gorgeous synthesizer work. Going over the a-side, "No Escape", it's a very good italo disco song... See full review

Why Not is more akin to space disco like Dutch artists Rofo and italo disco master Koto. And what an awesome song "Smile" really is. Instrumental other than the laughing giggles of what could be assumed to be mister smiley take this song to the high heavens! See full review

"Around" by Chiara is such an A+ italo disco gem, I can't understand even for a second how it sits at a 3.25 rating! Everything about it is wonderful. Beginning w/ the ob-VIOUS: the beautiful woman on the sleeve, Chiara! The song has that... See full review

"Coeur Mandarine" is a beautiful French minimal wave/italo disco-style song that is highly under the radar. I wish a longer version/12" existed, it's just such a great song that is over too quickly. Sadly, nothing else exists by Mariella, not... See full review

I guess this is the final destination if you're looking for "Trans Rainbow Xpress" by Mind's Eye. I can not find proof of a 12" or any other point to locate this hidden gem. If you're a lover of italodance and eurodance, this one is for you! There's... See full review

A very good song. Don't think for a minute this is a rip-off of Ryan Paris' 1983 classic italo disco song. This is nothing to do with it, and it's a very wonderful male + female vocal track. A definite underrated italo disco gem!

Don't be fooled by the bland cover art. This is a wonderful male/female italo disco gem. Hear the chorus once, it will be with you for life as a result! There's a trumpet in this song too.

"All Of Your Heart" is such a good song! This is mostly italo disco in everything but country of origin. While Paolo Ragatzu may be Italian as well as the other people involved in this song, his works are all out of Belgium. There's a tiny bit of... See full review

Here's a hidden gem if there ever was such a thing at this point in time! It's not entirely eurobeat, only headed in that direction with some of the components by 1989. In fact, this is the year that you decided which way to go as the Italian... See full review

100% masterpiece of italo disco! This has a haunting rhythm while some singers spell out the word P-A-N-D-A. What's not to love about that? "P.A.N.D.A. (Sigla Side)" is barely over 5 minutes, but regardless of the short length, it's still a... See full review

If you're looking for a pretty obscure italo disco gem, well look no further than the B-side of this record! The "Dub Bob One Remix" by Bob One AKA Roberto Attarantato is really something else! Sounds nothing like the original version of the song,... See full review

The only way to hear the song "Back To My Boy" by Pat is right here. And that's a shame because this is an amazing song! For years I had mistaken this as an Italian production. It's italo disco music at its heart, even though it's by a German artist.... See full review
posted a comment on Naked In Paris - Caza. about 1 year ago
Well, the b-side here is a very hard-beat club song (for 1983). It's up there with the production values of "Transdance", another favorite, also on the UK! My opinion is that "No-No Heh-Heh" is better than "Caza"!

Here we have an amazing italo disco song by a one-off artist known only as Rat Atà. The song of "Rap In Ha" is not what you would think a rap song from 1988 would sound like. So what is it then? It's just a gorgeous italo disco melody filled with many... See full review

Killer double gem by Mary Anne. "Astrology Charts" has some amazing female vocals on a very slow, sexy italo disco beat. And likewise, the B-side is just more of it. "My Baby My" is a very good song that complements A-side so well. It is not as dark... See full review
