Hello, everybody! It's Neon Bazooka talking, and you're listening to Neongrad FM. We just heard a couple of things from the new Mihai Popoviciu's minialbum French Kisses and Machinery, which was recently released on Arhiva7 netlabel...

...Nowadays, when minimal is everywhere, sometimes I find it refreshing listening to some ol' good electro(pop) stuff. Synthetic melodies, 808 beats, straight and rather simple. No wonder that last week-end some of the records I bought in Frankfurt's Delirium are not minimal at all (for example, Enik - Why do you love me?; Solvent - Radio Ga Ga).

So, at the moment I am listening the new release from the Romanian 'electrician' Mihai Popoviciu, whose Tales From The Moon ep was released on the Gigolo last year (I used to like it, especially the Sexy Spenders song). The new one is a solid record, too. The keywords stay the same: Gigolo, electro-/synthpop, italodisco, Pigna, Clone. Nevertheless, the guy has his own touch, some individuality, ya know. Actually these songs deserve to be released on vinyl.

There are several nice trax in this release, but for publishing I chose the one with a vocal in Romanian:

Mihai Popoviciu - In Zare

The rest you can get at Arhiva7

p.s. the domain is still free.
