Air - Warp Factor One (Space-Disco 1980).

Just discovered this great Disco-gem thanks to the blog "Overfitting Disco".
I have been following this blog for quite a while now and it always brings me to new tracks and ideas somehow .. no full downloads on this blog but the 30 second samples of the very rare and obscure disco + electro tracks always get me going for sure !.
They DO have 24/7 streaming disco-radio though which kicks ass .. it's the best !.
Anyway: this track is from a German group "Air" (not to be mistaken by the French band with the same name). This disco-act only released one single "Warp Factor One" in 1980, but what a great track it is !.

Disco-Tv .. Discovideos 24 hours a day !.

After a period of being somewhat inactive on the disco-scene (on the internet anyway) things are picking up again: a new YouTube account is up + running and i'll upload lots of videos in the next few months !. Apart from that i've always wanted to stream Disco-videos 24/7 .. so that's what i set out to do in 2010 !. For now i've signed up with UStream and am testing it now on my website. For now it's just great (Italo) discomusic with streaming video from my (crappy) webcam .. but hey: it's online for now !. Within a week or two there will be a dedicated 2nd Pc to serve all the real disco-videos to the website (which i'm starting up again from scratch as well).
2010 is a great year for new beginnings for sure !.
If you are into disco-videos from 1974-1988, keep watching this space or the main website.

Claudja Barry - Boogie Woogie Dancing Shoes (Dutch Tv 1978).
