Ivan Smagghe's Lost Classics.


Ivan Smagghe picked some of his favourite 'lost classics' and wrote some words about them. Regarde,

Annette - Dream 17 (Derrick May remix) (Deconstruction)
"North-The Sound of Dance Underground" was the first house record I bought. This is from the remix 12" that came out a bit later. My fave Derrick May remix (yes, Dee-Lite's Wild Times came close)...

Zeus - Cowboys on the Beach (extended) (Aladin)
Zeus B. Held also produced all the Gina X stuff. Great great album. This is an extended version that you will not find anywhere because...

Delkom - Superjack Infusion One (instrumental) (Wau, Mr Modo)
If Zeus was pretty cool, my german producer uber god is Conny Plank. He did not do this, but you feel how much Gaby Delgado was under the influence...

Logic System - Crash (Kaos edit) (original Version: EMI)
Two major influences in the beginning: The Lone Swordsman and nu-beat. Here's this Boccacio hit (proving how pushed the limits were). Edit by Kaos...

Robert Hood - Minus (Combo edit)
I sometimes find "classics" playlist a bit too respectful. This is not. And it's from 2009. It turns Hood's frantic hypnotic techno grinder into a 105 bpm almost krautrock monster. One of my track of this year...

Melody Boy 2000 - Sound Stealer (Monotone Musique)
Electroclash before it even was. From that period, if there was only one... Maybe this...

Asja Auf Capri - Contre Temps (Difficult Fun)
One brilliant album about 6 years ago. Then vanished. Lost indeed...

Aaron Carl - Homoerotic (Detroit Mix Show ext)
Here, I had to put something Weatherall related, Rather than my fave AW remix (MBV's Soon-not very original), this is a track that definitely reminds me of him...

Dark Day - No, Nothing. (Never-Lus/unlust)
And my hat off to Stirmonster. I did not know this incredible 1980 track (and brilliant album) until fairly recently. Sums up what I like about electronics and rock n'roll...

Sex Attac - Eteronout (White Label):
You know those records... The white label you've had for years but no nothing about? Sometimes nice to leave it like that...
