It’s springtime at “Disco Segreta”! May is the month of love…….and what better than a “strange love” (Stranamore)” to celebrate?
The second release of Disco Segreta – catalogue number DS M 002 – is titled “Stranamore” and comes after the successful release of the first label imprint “Andromeda”, already turned into an underground disco classic.
Sung in italian by mysterious singer Brina, “Stranamore” and “Per Te” are two italo-disco tracks written in the ’80s by Mario Baldoni (aka Miro) of the “Safari of Love” fame: a teenage girl shares her heartbreak, then it’s just the instant magic of italo, italian language and those synthesizers, in a freeze-frame taking back to that spring of 1984 with the car windows open, listening to the radio, waiting for summer to arrive.
A 3 tracks 12”, it contains “Stranamore” and “Per Te”, two italo-disco tracks sung in Italian language, originally featured as A/B sides of an unknown 7” published on the small “Pineapple”, a sublabel of Vedette records, in 1984. The single features an unreleased extended version of “Stranamore”, a remastered version of the original “Per Te” track and a stunning remix of “Per Te” by Danish italo-disco maestro Flemming Dalum.
