Rafa Spunky – No te puedo olvidar

Rafa Spunky is not only well-known in his native Spain as a long-term backing singer for Fangoria and as a DJ, but increasingly also as a solo artist who records in English and Spanish. He’s a big fan of 70s and 80s pop, as he explains in this interview with Swedish photojournalist Micke Bayart.

This particular song – from 2008 – has also been re-mixed for an album, but we like the original.

ItaLove – Too Late to Cry

Close your eyes and it could be the 80s…Swedish Italo Disco band ItaLove openly pay homage to classic bands from that era, but are enjoying present-day success.  Front man Martin Blix is openly gay, and a well-know DJ in his home country.

 

 

 

Divine Knights – Clouds (The Sanfernando Sound Remix)

The Australian duo Divine Knights, Gerard Anthony & Beef have been writing and recording together for several years, and are based in Sydney. If you’re a fan of electro-pop, you’ll love their music, as – and this is a compliment – it sounds like something you fondly remember from years ago.

They reached the semi-final of Australia’s Got Talent in 2012, which hopefully has given them access to the kind of production and publicity to allow them to grow as mainstream artists.
