only a few days ago, more precisely right HERE, i featured a pretty uncommon phenomenon, namely the art of changing creepy, awesome, deeply tempered synth anthems into bodyshaking, discobanging but still moody and dark dance tunes. last night, haunted by terror visions caused by watching another episode of DARKPLACE, i stumbled upon this masterpiece of swedish italo disciples JACKPOT.
they somehow managed to make a supreme piece of TANGERINE DREAM soundtrack for 1983 luscious nazi-horror movie THE KEEP by MICHAEL MANN ready for disco rotation. too many superlatives at a single blow? watch this EPIC movie scene closely, feel the shivering synths and images, before the swedish italian beats shake you back from this dream.
this hypnotizing tune can't be found on the OST for THE KEEP, however french companions VALERIE posted the track long ago right HERE on their old blog, unfortunately it's now offline. JACKPOT released their vision of the tune on this record HERE which is not available anymore either, but highly recommended by the hyperthrust realm though, just as all their other releases which are to be found HERE.

my currently favorite tv-series and recommendation for every balls to the wall horror fan is called DARK PLACE, which caught my attention via visual web-magician TOMMY BOY's blog entry on arawa.fm last halloween.
here's the trailer but notice: this one's not for the sensitive mind!
for more info on the series and dreamweaving mastermind GARTH MARENGHI visit his website:
the following video and song could give a wrong impression of what this dreary evil broadcast is really about. this romantic intermezzo is the only harmonic moment in a sequence of mad and disturbing supernatural drama, no holds barred...
this emotional moving, serious song is quite nontypical to hyperthrust's universe of unconditional delight and happiness, but it just has to come with a posting about one of the best mystery tv-series ever made!

it takes a lot to change a creepy slowed-down synth anthem by JOHN CARPENTER, originally designed for a movie badass like SNAKE PLISSKEN, into a smashing, bass-driven dancefloor tune while keeping all of it's mysterious and dark vibes.
germany's very own THE SPLASH BAND's gone it alone. from the depths of the alleys of a post-apocalyptic mass-prison NYC to the shores and discotheques of st. tropez and rimini, this is absolute complete musical italization, mission accomplished:

a perfect blend of rimini melody, moustache vocoder, no-style-dutch vocals and legshaking basslines - now feel the magic electronic!
you can check out the full e.p. with the incredible extended vocoder mix by mastermind FLEMMING DALUM and learn all about the origin of this mysterious electronic tune on BODY ELECTRIC'S myspace site HERE.
