Cool Italo Japan
For the past few months I’ve had this hazy memory of this Italo track. I can’t quite remember if its in English or Japanese. Then finally during Tiger Disco’s http://spincoaster.com/news/mecha-kucha-night-feat-koean-dj-tigerdisco-at-shinjuku-be-wave set at Be-Wave I hear it again. It’s Michael Fortunati’s “Give Me Up”. No wait, or is it “Into The Night”? I’m not sure but these songs only seem to differ by one note anyway. They are both going straight to my Italo folder for my DJ sets from now on though. But wait, this was in Japanese! 87 pop duo BaBe covered it. Soon after Tiger Disco played Season in the Sun by Tube. Not much Italo or Eurobeat flavor here but it seems to blend perfectly well with “Into The Night” (or Give me up either). Its quite similar musically with a “woahhohhhhh” sounding chorus and having the same key. It came out around the same time (1989).
Other Italo sounding Japanese tracksI’ve always had a hard time finding Italo disco sounding tracks from Japan. I don’t think anything is quite like “Give Me Up” (its not originally from Japan after all), but there are others out there. Yoko Oginome has a few stompers. Interestingly this album came out in English first, then later in Japanese, for whatever reason. To be honest this sounds more like the funky city pop sounds of the 80s than Italo to me, but it won’t sound terribly out of place in an Italo set. Akina Nakamori’s “Babylon” comes pretty close as well. Of course let’s not forget Wink either. Kenjiro Sakiya’s “I Wanna Dance” straight from 89 is Eurobeat as hell and absolutely nails it. There are lots of great tracks on that album. Actually now I am remembering that Kanako Wada covered “Lucky Love”. This track from the album “KANA” brings a eurobeat feeling with that baseline as well If you haven’t seen Mura-T’s SoundCloud yet, you should check that out right now. One of the best 80s DJs in Japan. There are lots of Japan eurobeat tracks in here that I can’t find anywhere and I’m sure Mura-T won’t reveal the identity of. :) Mura-T also drops “ABC” in this mix , one of my favorite tunes and a staple in any Yachi Hideki set. Sometimes Yachi likes to drop the Mandarin version by “Grasshopper”. Sorry I could only find a video of it on NicoNicoDouga, and I don’t think they have embeds. http://www.nicovideo.jp/watch/sm23228699 There are probably tons more tracks from Japan that hit the Italo spot. I think I hit a lot of the obvious ones though. If I missed any let me know!
