With my latest track I tried to come up with as authentic 80s stuff as possible. I tried doing some italo disco in the style of Koto etc. Not sure how well I managed to do that though...

What a coincidence! I'm just discovering some of these curious Italo songs of the 80s. Post disco is a period full of interesting ideas and techniques.

Listening...

Amazing production! Instant 80s like sonicpowa said! I'd like to make some snares like that! :D However, I'd push the Oberheim-like clap and the electro toms a little for the front, since Italo Disco puts these elements on evidence. But the mix is just fine as it is. Arrangement is simple and functional but it could be longer. It seems to end in the break.

I'm sure it could be a killer track, because the result so far is very good! :clap:

Ah, and thanks for the DL link!

Suddenly I'm driving an ice-cream truck through the streets of Los Angeles, chasing Mr. Big in his 1982 Lincoln Towncar limousine. Very nice!

Oh my God!

It's perfect! Reminds me of my misspent youth, and Eddie Murphy.
