no they're not. also there is groove magazine for free available in most recordshops, I take some with me every time I go to my local recordshop, but is has less content of course...

Re: Groove 113 (Germany)

@ MrWho
not really... there used to be some good articles in there... but since a few issues they are gone!
i think you still get them (without cd and less pages) for free in record shops, etc. here in germany!

Re: Groove 113 (Germany)

i wrote something like i was always peeved that articles about the cbs were reducing the cbs always on italo only. me personaly loved the monday/thursday, but i never listen at the weekend. and if people red an article, like"cbs is good for italo" and tune in monday, some of them will be shocked and never listen again.

Re: Groove 113 (Germany)

this mag is the shit since years. ingnored everything beside the techno minimal - since a few issues they talk about the so-called disco wave. hui, good morning groove. thank you for bringing me the hype! ?

always funny to read the top tens of many dj`s there. everybody plays the same (don`t believe the tops, they just write it to support each other and hoping for free copies and bookings...) and in clubs you miss their charts mostly - good though. the only honest list there is from mooner I think (maybe). He makes me smile if he puts some rock or disco or new wave in there, and his own releases for sure.

the free issue is very limited since they try to sell it in shops with a CD. I don`t care so much about it. CD`s incl. not so much interesting stuff, the labels have to pay hard for being on.

Re: Groove 113 (Germany)

@ captain
"this mag is the shit since years."
-> i was collecting it since the early 90ies, back then it was always a good guide for new releases as there was no internet at that time... but with the years it became worse and worse. after the launch of the paid issue it almost seemed to disappear from the market... bad content, bad graphics! then all of a sudden there were some really readable articles in there. but they disappeared as quick as they showed up...

"since a few issues they talk about the so-called disco wave. hui, good morning groove."
-> really? pfff... good morning indeed!

"the labels have to pay hard for being on."
-> in what way?

Re: Groove 113 (Germany)

Ah I understand it might appear weird to find Zyx collectable, especially if you come from Germany or somewhere where those releases are still everywhere in second-hand shops...
For me I discovered italo disco in 1989 and I had to be quick with buying what I could during the following few years before the records disappeared from the Swedish shops...and almost everything you could find was from Zyx (and Swedish Beat Box)...so this is part of my childhood and even though I know Zyx is and was a commercial company working with business logics just like a major, there is a lot of nostalgia to it for me...and today with Internet market places none of their releases are so difficult to find anymore but this is not how it used to be in Sweden! It took me almost 20 years to collect the italo boot mixes!

After all Bernhard Mikulski invented the term "italo disco"...I'd love someone to do some research and a feature on that now dead person, maybe he was just a boring businessman but until that is revealed, he will be an exciting mystery to me...just like Fredrik Ramel, the Swedish italo disco remixer who made all the "Swedish remixes" of italo disco tracks and the Beat Box megamixes.

So that's what I spoke to the interviewer about, how much the "best of italo disco" compilations meant to me when I was younger...

Ciao,
Johan.

hehe cbs == italo

even though i don't live in germany i'm in zyx land.

i'll gladly take the zyx release instead of the original (italian) one if
a) the original is so much more expensive that it hurts
b) the original is nowhere to be found
c) the original has a shit pressing

who cares if i got "helen - witch" on zyx instead of out anyways if it's such a cool track?

Although I am living in Germany and found loads of ZYX records during the last 2 decades, to me its the same as Johan describes above.
It were the ZYX records I bought for DM 2,00 back in the days in the record shops (after I heard them in the discotheque some nights before), because I went to school and had DM 20,00 for the entire months each back in 1984/85.
ZYX introduced me to Italo Disco and the mysterious Italian names and recording studios on the backside of the covers. Will always mean something special to me although thoughts about today's ZYX company are much "different" nowadays.

Re: Groove 113 (Germany)

I like Groove, I don't like Zyx since I hated it when I was young - the worst of EBM on that label except for Invincible Spirit (Was not into disco at that time), I guess I am quite uncool... hm, I like minimal...worse...

Re: Groove 113 (Germany)

yeah, i also avoid any zyx pressing, but would take harder to find ones like helen - witch
(if it was released there too, i don't know) or Kirlian Camera - Blue Room is sold for 60 Euri, no matter
if Zyx or Italian.

Groove is indeed very bad. The most annoying thing imo is the total whitewash of the worst releases.
I remember the legendary 'frontpage' magazine by j

Re: Groove 113 (Germany)

All 3 magazines have the same content (80%). Always well known people on the frontpage, same interviews, reviews, urban-(trend)-shit-talk... 

It's just "Let's talk about money, money" - like every business. Total usual.
