Serge Santiago is a DJ and fellow ex-Brightoner who, for me, is one of the few people carrying the torch for italo-disco with the passion and vitality it deserves. This wonderfully powerful and vivacious form of early 80s electronic dance music echoes through most contemporary ‘floorfilling material but Serge is taking it back to its raw, technicolour roots. Now’s not the time for dour minimalism – this is MAXI music.

His top 20 best italo list is a fine starting point for disco gem mining and his re-edits on his own Arcobaleno label (you can DL some from the label’s facebook page) update the originals without foresaking quality. There’s also a fine DJ Mix here for a spacey taster featuring classics from Cerrone and Gino Soccio.

Just wanted to show some love, s’all.
