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.
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.
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.
