Put this song Angels in Jar on your cassette deck and drive somewhere fun tonight. Wolfsheim’s Markus Reinhardt and Peter Heppner were from Hamburg, Germany. This cassette was recorded in 1988.
“In January 2009 Heppner and Reinhardt splitted up due to personal differences caused by the solo activities of Heppner. Currently Reinhardt is fighting in court to get the right to continue the project Wolfsheim with a different singer.” – discogs

This song Bulbform by Toronto based band Trust is pretty cool. I like the vocal melody and the synth lines that follow it. The junoesque pad at the intro and break surely peaked my interest.
“Trust were formed in Toronto by Robert Alfons and Maya Postepski in 2009, and their dark, sexy music fuses spooky witch house atmospheres and four-on-the-floor techno beats. In 2011, Sacred Bones released the duo’s first two 7” singles, “Candy Walls” and “Bulbform.” – Tunes Biography

If you want to listen to music purely made from analog synthesizers and drum machine Solvent is a good place to start. Jason Amm has some nice stuff in his studio no? I like his honesty when he does into details how even though he’s a veteran at this point he is still largely unknown and gets ripped off my distributors and promoters. He will also be featured in the upcoming I Dream of Wires movie.
“Veteran Canadian producer and hardware lover, Solvent, gave StudioFeed an inside look at his Bloor-West home studio set-up, as well as discussed everything from why he makes music to the story behind his recent RDJ-CS5 EP.” – studiofeed

As record stores disappeared and cassettes disintegrated we lost access to some obscur electronic music from the early 80s. You can find tidbits on iTunes, Spotify and assorted blogs. Youtube on the other hand has become a treasure trove of underground material. Not only is a large portion of early recorded material being uploaded but it seems anyone that had a local electronic band is posting their demos. I’ve started a playlist of my findings. So far I have 35 videos in the playlist that runs over two hours. Of course there is a huge amount more that can be added. Feel free to post links of songs you think I should include. The more tape hiss the better!

There are so many little gems from the 80s. If you could live a ten decades you could just about hear every underground electronic song from 1980-1989. That makes living ten decades worth it.
“Italo disco is a very broad term, encompassing much of the dance music output in Europe during the 1980s. It is one of the world’s first forms of completely electronic dance music and evolved during the late 1970s and early 1980s in Italy, Germany, the Netherlands and other parts of Europe. Italo disco music has a distinct, futuristic and spacey sound, which was created using synthesizers, drum machines and vocoders.” – WIkipedia
