Italo House Tune #6 and A Deep Dark Pit

As I mentioned earlier, I’ve not long climbed out of a long illness – Boxing Day ’til the end of January. I’ve never been so ill for so long. It all started with a cold, but got progressively worse, to the point were I couldn’t even drink water. I lost interest in everything and found it very hard to get out of bed – real weird head-messing stuff.  I’m not one for going to the doctors, and would rather try to cure myself, but I succumbed, unfortunately. The doctor couldn’t explain the problem, but diagnosed Bronchitis. As Steve Cobby said – ‘Proper Bucking Broncho’ (try saying that when you’ve had a few).  It took until the end of February to feel 100%, so Christmas/New Year passed me by. I was also booked to DJ at this…

HSOB 2013

but I had to cancel, which was a bummer, as I was really looking forward to playing with a load of Brummie DJ pals and spinning a Breathless/Snobs set, with a few fresh platters thrown in. I started digging-in-the-crates early December, so that I was sort of prepared with a loose set of gems, and whilst diggin’ I unearthed this great moody Italo House track, which still hits the mark for me….

Here’s a great 80s New Wave/Synth-Pop track that was popular at the Rum Runner, which I still like the sound of today, and will more than likely get an airing tomorrow night…

I Am Excited!

Since hearing this track again, on my Breathless mix, I’ve been searching high and low for it here at Dicky Towers, and whilst searching through a few boxes, for a specific Halloween track to post, and failing miserably in that department, I stumbled on this killa track. It’s the perfect club track with all the right ingredients in the right places. And I get goose bumps when that keyboard line drops at 1:48!

There was a lot of cheese coming out of Italia around this period (my record collection can vouch for this) but certain Italian producers were more than able to hold their own and produce cuts of sublime deepness.


“Alright Richard, Only recently came across your blog which is great as i was a regular at breathless many moons ago and really cherish those times. Anyway i wondered if you would put the Rapina Brothers ‘Set Me Free’ up on your blog if you can find it? I used to love it when you dropped this tune and have never managed to find it 20 years! all the best and thanks for the memories”
