From legendary American producer Patrick Cowley to modern Dutch artists such as The Hasbeens through Italian duo Nico Band. Last month we talked to Koen, Nils, and Jesse from Utrecht’s Domstad Italo Squad about their favorite Italo disco records.
Domstad Italo Squad combines Italo disco with New Beat, Electro, and Chicago House. Although they started as a DJ collective, they soon started hosting parties with artists such as Loud-E, Marsman, and Budino.
Stijn Sibbel and Sjoerd Van den Berg have been deejaying for the past four years as Kookkamer Soundsystem at both house parties and clubs in Rotterdam. Last week we sat down to talk about their favorite Italo disco tracks.
Friday. 1AM. With a slightly wobbly walk and with blurry vision I enter club BAR Rotterdam. It is different tonight. The music is more melodic. A bit 80s. With vocals.
