JOHN FOXX - Underpass (Mark Reeder Remixes) 2010 electro disco synth pop 80s electronic new wave classic

01 John Foxx - Underpass (Mark Reeder's Sinister Subway Radio Mix)
02 John Foxx - Underpass (Mark Reeder's Sinister Subway Remix)
03 John Foxx - Underpass (Mark Reeder's Dark Long and Sinister Remix)
"Underpass" is a song by UK artist John Foxx, and was released as a single in January 1980. It was the artist's first solo single release after leaving the band Ultravox and the first single release from the Metamaticalbum, which was released shortly after. The track remains Foxx's best known song as is generally considered to be one of the most iconic songs of the electronic new wave trend.
The song typically features music made using synthesisers and electronic percussion only, and the vocal in the verses is delivered in a cold robotic style by Foxx, with an anthemic single word chorus. The lyrics featureBallardian themes such as memory, architecture, dystopia and cars. There are no great differences in length or content between the album and single version, although an extended version did emerge years later and was used as the opening track on the Metatronic compilation album in 2010.
The single reached no. 31 in the UK charts and was performed by Foxx with three keyboard players on UK music show Top of the Pops. A promotional video for the song was also made.
"Underpass" is featured on all John Foxx's compilation albums Assembly (1982), Modern Art - The Best of John Foxx (2001), Glimmer - Best of John Foxx (2008) and Metatronic (2010). The latter features the extended version and a new remix by Mark Reeder.

DIVINE - Disco Diva Megamix (Non-Stop Hi-NRG Disco Eurobeat Mix) Bobby Orlando & Stock Aitken & Waterman PWL Mixes

DIVINE aka (Harris Glenn Milstead) (October 19, 1945 – March 7, 1988) was an actor and singer known by his drag persona "Divine". He appeared in several of John Waters' films.
In the 1980s, Divine released several dance music records which were club music hits. Divine's records comprised synth-heavy disco music, most of it composed, created, performed, and produced by Bobby Orlando. In the United States, Divine's highest-charting songs were "Native Love", peaking at #21 on the Club Play Singles chart, and "Shoot Your Shot", which reached #39 among Club Play Singles. Divine's early UK releases on the Design Communications label included "Love Reaction" (which many said "borrowed" elements of New Order's big hit "Blue Monday"), "Shake It Up", and "Shoot Your Shot". All of these releases were big gay club hits and minor mainstream chart hits.
