Welcome to our second and final Italo compo

This time it's Italo Disco - so we're going back to the 80ties.

"It is one of the world's first forms of mostly electronic dance music and evolved during the late 1970s and early 1980s in Italy, Germany, the Netherlands and other parts of Europe. Italo disco's futuristic, spacey sound was effected by synthesizers, drum machines and vocoders." - wikipedia

Again a very nice intro, I love the transition to another synth sound. Great mixing/mastering. Could do without the fast arpeggio cuts though. The melodies are totally italo-like, and the synth sounds are very well-chosen as well. A straight 9.

Nice punchy percussion. Love the bells! I find the melodies a bit repetitive and christmas-like (seriously :D). Nice changes of atmosphere though!

This is my 3rd favorite. Very happy, but the mastering is terrible! Way too much peaking. But the bass is nice.

I think it's not hard to guess the author here ;) As always, well-chosen and extremely well mastered percussion. I'm not sure about the vocoder parts, maybe it would be better without them. If it was up to me I would change the lead sound as well, but that's personal taste I think. 9 here as well.

Nice bass, but needs better mastering. The output is peaking way too much.

Nice overall, but the simple lead seems a bit too demoscene-ish and non-italodisco to me, sorry. Good mixing.

The Apollo mission samples make this more space synth than italo.

Very cool. This is my 2nd favorite of the compo. Reminds me of some montage scene from Miami Vice. Also very good mastering.

I give most of the points for the uniqueness of the synth (compared to the other entries). It's too slow for me, though.

Great intro. Very 80s, reminds me of Buzzer's tracks. Doesn't sound dancy to me, but I'll give it an 8 for the great imitation of the 80s sound, which deserves it in my opinion. Well done!

doesn't sound too italo disco for me. Also the claps/drumselection is not my case.

This is actually very good, but too repetitive. It's obvious where some patterns got repeated.

I like the wahwah synth, but overall the song is a bit boring. Needs more climax.

Good sound, but as it progresses, I don't get an italo feel from it. Sudden changes in melody disturbed me a bit.

melody sounds too random for me
