“Catch” by Sun-La-Shan - Disco Video Mix by Glenn Rivera

Italo-disco began an innovative journey from 1980 throughout the latter part of this dance era. Many musicians of this generation were heavily influenced by the beauty of Euro-disco, yet were obviously searching for a sound that was adventurous and fresh.

Bands such as Sun-La-Shan emphasized a feel for keyboards and arrangements that were just a phenomenal as the German work of Kraftwerk. In a time where experimental techniques were key their track “Catch” became a sound that even today perplexes and tweaks the mind.

In 1982 this single was released on their label Superradio and was produced by Franco Scopinich (Atmosphere, Camaro’s Gang, Dance Club) and featured strange but alluring vocals by Venise.

I asked Italo-disco specialist, Alex Nikitin (www.euro-flash.net) a track from this genre which to apply with a Video Mix and “Catch” was it. Sounded great to me – but which film would work over the mysterious sound and flow of the song? After a few minutes of thought, the images of the 1977 horror film by Dario Argento were embedded in my mind. The two were made for each other.

And even though the spoken elements of the dance track “Catch” are quite a mystery the terror of “Suspiria” seem to answer the keyboards, which haunt the track.

“Suspiria” stars Jessica Harper, Stefania Casini and Flavio Bucci – my first time viewing this film as a teenager made me sleepless for several nights. Now I find the allure of “Suspiria” being the genius of Argento’s outline to brilliantly capture suspense and horror as art.

This Video Mix is a salute to Italo-disco and Dario Argento.
