VA - Serie Noire: Dark Pop And New Beat

Another personal favourite of mine. A superb compilation of Italo-Disco, Electro, Synth-Pop and New Beat compiled & mixed by Mo & Benoelie (aka The Glimmers) & Dirk (Eskimo) . "Serie Noire, an ongoing collection of groundbreaking electronic dance music from the [recent] past, is here to reinstate the value of long-lost dance collectives, producers and bands who once [or repeatedly] hit the mark and proved to be hugely influential for generations to come. Culled from different timezones and non-aligned scenes, the tracks all have the same brooding, ominous feeling about them...fusing cold Kraftwerkian robotic beats with primitive funk, or pasting sinewy squelches onto calculated rhythm patterns, a batch of wayward musicians devised the kind of music that felt strangely detached but couldn't help but get under everyone's skin." Part 2 coming soon.
