Moroder+Pilooski+Hercules+Float. Points

Posted by Jakub


Sometimes I like to make sure some of you haven’t missed underground classics in the synth world and also edits. This is my favorite track by Giorgio Moroder by far, I always wanted a 9 min version of To The Bridge and I thought that person should of been Pilooski. As for this edit of Del Shannon, Pilooski kills it with this stomping reinterpretation which will go down as one of the best edits in my mind, I couldn’t imagine a dance floor that wouldn’t enjoy it.

I haven’t heard new production from Hercules And Love Affair in a while now, I saw a mix recently but thats about it, I went back and noticed I really wore that LP down, I loved listening to it. Here’s a remix they did and here’s something that might just leave me alone in the dark but i’ll try and see any of you agree, did anyone play Streets Of Rage 2 on the Sega Genesis? well there is this swamp level and the boss for that level I swear sounds like the sample at the beginning of this song, anyone hear it? no biggie if you don’t hah

I like to check Pitchfork daily no matter how much right or wrong that people might think they do they definitely are very up to the minute and have their fingers in everything. Today they gave this unique Floating Points house track an 8 out of 10! it was soo nice to see, an 8 for something that i’d never think that they’d post about, it just made me happy that’s all.

Jakub, it’s funny, Pitchfork were the ones that originally turned me on to Floating Points .. back last summer they reviewed the track “K&G Beat” and favored it as well. http://pitchfork.com/reviews/tracks/11419-kg-beat/
Arrogant, opinionated reviews get me angered time to time, but I have to admit that I do find out about a lot of music from them. I’m no Pitchfork hater.

Thanks Jakub! Fantastic tracks here. I agree with NAVIS, the pilooski track is hot. That Giorgio Moroder track would certainly benefit from a Prins Thomas extended mix.

Great post – but I still think that People’s Potential is far from FP’s best. Still a mega fan of his stuff….

FYI you might want to put Amazon associate “buy this song” links on the music you post all of the time to make a bit of money from them. I certainly enjoy listening to your recommendations.

Where can I find this said Pilooski track. I can’t find it anywhere. It’s a drug for me now. I need my fix. In my car.

Seriously…I must have the pilooski edit. Be merciful and tell us where. I spent about an hour searching the web, amazon, and itunes. Post it here or email it or something. Pretty Pretty Please.

The first song by Moroder really reminds me of the work Jan Hammer did for Miami Vice around the same time. Check out these MV tracks (full length for free on Last.fm) “The Trial and the Search”, “Payback” and “Columbia” (sweet pan flute). If you loved the show like I did, they’re guaranteed to take you back…I actually even bought this double CD about 10 years ago. Here’s the link…
