marzio dance - "rap-o-hush" (download) (removed)
As far as I'm concerned, this is a novelty record, but it was also a minor Italo Disco hit back in 1983. Essentially, it's a disco version of Deep Purple's "Hush" but with raps done by a 30-something white guy. It makes for an interesting listen. buy
plastic bertrand - "tout petit la planete" (download) [audio http://www.divshare.com/direct/14989042-6d1.mp3]
Belgium's Plastic Bertrand is probably best known for this song, which you've most likely heard, but never knew who it was. While I love that song, "Tout Petit la Planete" (released in 1978) is the one that really stands out to me. Sort of Italo-disco-y, with touches of vocoder. Not all of his recordings were great, but when he was on, he was on. buy
gay cat park - "i'm a vocoder" (download) [audio http://www.divshare.com/direct/14682220-306.mp3]
Italo disco classic from 1982 about what it's like to be a vocoder. Even the reissues of this 12" are hard to find. According to this Facebook page that has recently popped up, there might be more great Gay Cat Park songs released from the vaults eventually. For now, this will have to do.
la bionda - "i wanna be your lover" (download) [audio http://www.divshare.com/direct/13884143-82d.mp3]
Brothers Carmelo and Michaelangelo La Bionda are well known Italo Disco producers in Italy, but not so well known outside their home country. This record (also titled I Wanna Be Your Lover) was released in 1980. They've also done work as DD Sound (DD meaning Disco Delivery), although I have yet to hear any of their music under that name. Check out this awesome video from an Italian TV show in 1981 right here
