It's been 2 years since i posted my last Italo Disco Mix (no. 4) so i thought it was about time to record a new one. Italo was huge in Germany in the 80s and along with Funk it was what i was into. Spending summer holidays in Spain as a teenager and hearing lot's of Italo in the clubs back then was also why i have a connection to this sometimes very cheesy music. Besides the cheesiness there's a lot of cool drummachine and synth sounds to explore. Italo also played a big part in the evolution of Chicago House Music and today i know much more (about) Italo records than i knew then. Some records go for crazy money and are very hard to find. As in my previous mixes i'm playing both, the more known hits and the obscure underground stuff.
