2 minutes sample of remix of the Italoconnection vinyl.

This is a good way for Giancarlo Pasquini, some little hope, when the japanese market doesn't offer him nothing serious. He would keep the cooperation with Fred Ventura like in 1988 - 1989. Last big events in Italy and Holland have helped Aleph to refresh the former sympathy of local fans.

I didn't know that. That's great!
Thanks for sharing :)


You might be interested to know that someone else who is a member on this forum MIGHT be working on a future release with FLASHBACK Records as well, according to that person telling me first hand.

Yep, it's my song. I put a demo version of it into some Italo Disco forum in 2005 and somehow it went to Mexico and became a Patrick Miller hit. Now that I present myself a bit in the internet, Flashback Records contacted me to make an official vinyl release. I'm very happy and proud!

Seems Marc Almond of Soft Cell fame has also jumped on the Italo rebirth scene. He has teamed up with Starcluster on the album Silver City Ride.

2 brand new Italo-disco songs by Flashback Records.


Previews are up:
R.B. Project feat. Brian Ice - I Am What I Am
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dkhXgcJ2jXU

I like the instrumental melody of this song as well as the hook, but the vocals from Brian have seen better days, unfortunately. Something seems a bit off in the vocal melody. It doesn't seem to fit with the melody of the song.


Italove - I Trust You (Like I Trust Myself)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9gRChvjnK_w

The Italove song has a heavy influence from New Order - Blue Monday. I'm bold enough to say it's actually a complete knock-off in the melody.

The Brian Ice song has a perfect Italo Disco melody. His vocals do sound a tad off. I think he is trying to hard to hide his accent, so it sounds kind of funny.

The Italove song also has more Giorgio Moroder vibes than New Order. The backround percussion is pure Hi-Energy style of 84-87. The Cowbell is pure Dead Or Alive heaven.

I was actually at my peak during this sound, so I like this one better than Brian Ice's song.

Both songs prove that Flashback records doesn't fuck around when they make music.
