Sequins and Spandex Parts VI & VII

So, it’s been just under a year since the last two installments of the Sequins and Spandex series, and since summer is just around the corner, I figure it’s due time to unveil the next two. Italo is very much summer music for me (and curiously, new beat gets the job done in wintertime, as far as the big beats are concerned), and though it’s raining here in New York, I figure everyone could use a little summer cheer. As always, I’ve had a hard time whittling down my choices, so you get two mixes for the price of one!

Before unveiling the tracklisting, I’d like to thank Shawn of Led Er Est/Further Reductions for the continuous crash course in italo, as well as Nick of Crispy Nuggets for lending me a handful of jams from his back pages. I’ve also re-included the 12” mix of Mad Matrix’s “Men Alone,” a Belgian track in the same vein, since it just works so well here. There’s also a UK artist in the mix, but the track was too good to pass on. Anyway, here’s the tracklisting, and I do hope you enjoy!

PS- I have a good chunk of leftovers for this one. However, in fear of it being overkill, I’ll wait for you kids to digest these one for a bit. Keep your eyes peeled for the next one!

    However, I try and try to download sequins and spandex: part III, and it fails 🙁

    I would be really happy if you could re-upload it!

    Many thanks!

    Thank you so, so much! That's simply awesome! Here in Scotland I find that Italo is perfect summer music, but I've always time fior naughty New Beat too. We have lovely long days and it's fairly sunny. But Winter in bonnie Scotland is just foul so I go into a sort of minimal wave goth meets detroit techno thing, (and drink too much red wine).

  6. Awesome, thanks!

    Digging it.

    (man, but something about that Fresh Color – "Sing With Me Tonight" song really annoys me ;p. "Listen to the words I say: OHLALALALALA" uh, yeah man, I'm listening… are you going to say anything of substance?)
