He did a mix on Sand Circles' internet radio show and it's excellent. No fucking clue what any of the tracks are, all seems to be 80s era new beat and synthwave stuff.      11 unreleas

it's a good album

I don't think I've mentioned this but Percival Pembroke's music comes damn close.  

this one slipped under my radar, but the s/t was great, gotta look into this

he's been posting unreleased stuff on tumblr - ive archived as much as I can

 

still kicking myself for not ripping / downloading a handful of YT videos he's since deleted

 

one was a movie scene of a guy looking at a tv with fuzz and the other was a woman on a float in the ocean, both 90s era footage

No problem, good timing to revisit his channel. He re-upped / re-listed a bunch of videos!

All his stuff on Bandcamp is literally name your price. I bought everything.

Uh, yeah this Percival Pembroke stuff is awesome. I came at it like “I dunno, man... nothing could really scratch that itch...” and here I am five days later really, really impressed and have downloaded all of the albums.

Im just discovering 1991 and Im blown away. All of his stuff is so different and nice. Digging on it hard right now.

this mix is fantastic.  reminds me of the boc societas tape in reminding me how deep the wells of music go for the true explorers.

also he has always had unreleased tunes on that tumblr page, but i dont recognize (or remember) these ones.  someone should download and compile..

I've downloaded them in the past and did it again yesterday. There's still some early versions of No More Dreams I have saved somewhere too.

Only 8 mins in, and already this mix is awesome.

Really would love to hear more from 1991, one of my absolute favourites.

Big props for playing Diana Est - Tenax in that mix.

I haven't listened to much 1991 beyond the self-titled, I should try and change that sometime.

Oh nice, that was my favorite track from the set. 

So many great little production details, especially on the chorus.

I had no idea what the lyrics were until I found the below translation - she conveys them effectively in her singing

Yeah, the lyrics are fantastically nutty, and tie in with "Tenax" being a particularly strong brand of hair gel in the 80s. A true italo classic.

And given an edit by none other than Legowelt a few years ago.

Awesome mix. Only recognize Yaz's "Don't Go" and Ultravox's "Mr. X".

Those Tumblr tracks are proving difficult to download. Must be the way they are embedded or something.

same here. Totally passed me by before but can't stop listening to No More Dreams now. Such a lovely melancholic 80s degraded synth feel, which I can't seem to get enough of.

I love how between a couple of tracks there's the very faint sounded of muffled beats, like he's recorded over the same tape multiple times. You can hear it right at the end of No More Dreams IV and V..
