SCORPIONS - Is There Anybody There? (chronovisor mix)

One of the most famous melodic hard rock bands in the world the todays posting is dedicated to. Founded way back in Germany in 1965 (and still existing!), they sold over the years over 75 Million copies of their records, so they are the second successful band in Germany after MODERN TALKING (well - something good must have something bad - yuck!). This band was very well known for their rock ballads as well, and one of these - but not the best known one - will be introduced to you today. It was also released as a 7" single, and I wonder, why nobody thought about a 12" version. So I remembered the old days - when I was young ;-) - gave a listen to it, and finally, I did it my way. Just ENJOY! Floyd Anderson.

MASQUERADE - Guardian Angel (The Mixdoctor Edit 2005)

Today it is right time to bring back memories. Yes - back memories of a german artist, who started his career in the mid 60s, ending after over 40 years, when he died at least two years ago. He got huge successes in every single decade with different aliases, and of course with his own name, which was DRAFI DEUTSCHER, as well.
It also is the right time to bring other mixers right here on the cover, who have the same spirit of mixing, that we have here on strictlymixes. But it is a pretty pity, that I do not know anything of the todays mixers background, probably someone of you could help me with this, I am sure, there is more to get from him.
Anyway - just lend your ears to this fantastic romantic track, which is mixed so very well. I just can take a bow to the mixer, and to all listeners. ENJOY! Floyd Anderson.

Sophie Ellis-Bexter - Get Over You (Atomix Remix)

Here's my effort to make Sophie Ellis-Bexter sound cool:

This was made using an instrumental I made from Lemal's fantastic 'I Don't Mind That' as well as the rap from Indeep's 'Last Night A DJ Saved My Life'
Hope you like it...

KAISER SOUZAI vs. K80BLOG and KATEREADSBOOKS - To The Beat (Here You Go! Gawd It!) (chronovisor mix)

Sometimes I got inspirations from somewhere out there, or wherever from, I don't know.
Probably you know my predilection for celebreties (if not, then you know it now), even though they do not know that they are to me. ;-) But what is it all about? Well, I let them perform. It is exciting to me over and over again to make audio experiments, when I got a superbe inspiration like this one. Bloggers, do you all remember COZMONITE61? She was an audio celebrity to me from North Carolina. Now today I present you two new ones, K80BLOG from California and KATEREADSBOOKS from Ohio. I got the inspiration from a video shown in youtube, here is the link. For this wonderful performance I used the parts from 03:53 to 03:55 mins. and from 04:00 to 04:07. Of course when all my audio celebreties perform I use a trance track, and today it is a German one, obviously (die Deutschen haben es einfach drauf!). At least it is on you to have fun with this track as much as I had while producing it. ENJOY! Floyd Anderson.

KARL BISCUIT - Fatal Reverie (chronovisor mix)

"If when my day will come
You could offer me
A time without remains and memory
But I do not die
From coughing up a little blood
When my fall of shame and misery
Will not defeat the fatal reveries
But I do not die
From coughing up a little blood
I cry a long time in solitary
If that morning could be 'le cafard'."

I cannot rest, and I cannot sleep. And I'm scared to fall asleep, because of getting fatal reveries. And while thinking of that miserable situation, I did remember of a song I didn't listen to for ages. It was also the time, when I did colour my short cutted hair bleach-blond, and I did colour my beard black (with mascara!). Oh yes - and I did wear black clothes only. And I also couldn't find a rest and a sleep at that time, back in those days. And I didn't talk too much, and I didn't laugh. Well, it wasn't the aera of laughing. And then, I listened to this kind of music I want to introduce you a piece of it today.
The today's artist comes from France, and he only did three releases in the mid 80s on vinyl. Thank god all his songs did find a place on CD which was released in 2003. It's a pretty pity that he still is almost unknown, or if he is known, then he is too much underrated. Well, in German we call it then: 'Geheimtipp'. This dark synthiesizer popmusic is reserved for my 'grey' days, when the sun is not able to enlighten myself. To bring a creative note I did stretch this wonderful song to a nicely listenable lenght, the original lenght is 05:13 mins. Be happy anyway and ENJOY! Floyd Anderson.

PAUL HARDCASTLE - The Wizard (The Theme From 'Top Of The Pops') (chronovisor mix)

Dear music.bloggers, as you maybe have noticed, the today's artist is one of my favourite ones ever. He had his most successful time in the 80s, when he surely sold most of his records. But he consequently was going his own musically way finding out some other electronic music styles for himself, and he did well so far.
1986 he got the offer from the BBC to compose a new theme to one of the most seen music TV shows in Europe that time. The result was a fantastic new piece of music, which also was reaching high positions in the most European music charts. Well, finally I did remember all those things and of course of the song, it just was too short for me. So, what else was to do for me, than giving it a fine 12"-like lenght. I did it, and here is the result, so - ENJOY! Floyd Anderson.

THE CARS - Drive (Dodi's crossover mix) (1984)

Back from vacation with a new crossover.Like other songs from their fantastic ''Heartbeat city'' LP, ''Drive'' unfortunately wasn't officially published in any extended or remix form. After my last post I was kindly asked to try to crossover ''Drive'' and after a lot of work and problems all the way here's the result...6:35 long version of one of the best 80's ballads...

LOUIE AUSTEN - More (chronovisor mix)

Today I want to present you one of the most less known but nevertheless one of the most remarkable artists of my home country in the latter years. He really is an entertainer from another generation (61 years of age!), and he worked for several years in Las Vegas on track of his idols, "The Rat Pack", and when you give a listen, you'll recognize, why he was able to do that. Back in Vienna in 1999, and after meeting some ambitiously young electronic music producers he turned from a "Jazzcrooner" to an "Electroniccrooner". Ever since then he is been electrotaining people with his surrealistic fusion of his incredible and unique voice and modern club sounds. (The above informations are partly taken from discogs.)
The todays famous track interestingly is part of the O.S.T. "Die Viertelliterklasse", which is an Austrian movie, a tragic comedia about alcoholism.
My fellow German-American blogmeister DreamTime also took a bow by releasing this song on his blog back in some days and somewhere. And where? Hell people! Go and search for it! ;-)
I myself took a bow by streeetchin' it to an easy to listen and veeery relaxing lounge track. ENJOY! Floyd Anderson.
