Typhoon: Portrait Of The Electronica Years – Compiled By Beppe Loda
Brilliant selection from the 80’s Italian cult club compiled by resident DJ Beppe Loda. This first instalment is dedicated to the more electronic side of things and the tracking list is an excellent balance of progressive electronic tracks from Europe with some electro/Italo disco episodes such as the Italian group MC1 with the track ‘Basic’. This timeless album is itself a true cult that represents the phenomenon that is ‘afro music’, today wrongly labelled as the ‘Cosmic sound’, that developed through various clubs such as Chicago, The Bay Of Angels, Melamara, The Cigalles, Goody Goody, Bisbi and of course Typhoon!
The Typhoon club was the epicentre of various avant-guard musical styles including electronic, afro and experimental and this CD contains many of the tracks that literally made the dancefloor explode time and again. Here you will find a brilliant choice of tracks that have become collectors items over the years, Beppe Loda has dug deep into his crates and the result is nothing short of a musical portrait, a ‘Portrait Of The Electronic Years’.
