Welcome to the new BlahBlahCafe!

We have migrated to a new server. As with every migration, some things might have been lost in translation (at least, that's my experience in software development). The main problem is logging in into the boards. These could be caused by several reasons:

- Your browser cache & cookies need to be cleared because we moved to a new server. If you get the error message whilst logging: "The submitted form was invalid. Try submitting again.", you need to clear your cache & cookies. You can find a "Delete cookies" option at the bottom of this page.

- There is also a chance that your password is not correctly converted to the new system. This is a known bug with migrating the system. The only solution is to request a new password, there's a link on the form that will send an email to you to create a new password. If that fails, I can set a password for you, you can contact us at the "Contact us" link at the bottom of the page.

Do you know Didier Marouani and his band, Space ?
That's also electronic music stuff mixed with real choirs, that's really nice music to listen too.

His most famous hits were Magic Fly, Just Blue and Space Opera, but he keeps going today...

Good stuff.

Recently picked up Space Opera on Amazon; nice stuff.

Just as a heads-up, what may possibly be his best live album (well, when it comes to his non-Space Opera tracks anyway) - definitely his "Concerts in China" and not just because this one also features Dominique Perrier - has recently been released on black and silver vinyl:

Well, I wish there was a way to preview those tracks, because the tracklisting appears to be based on the 1980s video release instead of the most recent re-release on Spotify - which is a great thing ... unless they've just put the VHS audio on vinyl. :P

Interesting article on Space's Magic Fly:
https://www.hiphopelectronic.com/no-daw ... -magic-fly
Magic Fly is a real experience for the listener, and it is a smooth, galactic drift with a touch of Balearic. The sound design and synthesis of this piece is a work of art.

The song was composed in the same apartment as "Oxygene" by Jean Michel Jarre in 1976. Being good mates at the time, Didier took Jarre's apartment and created this masterpiece on a Korg synthesizer, Arp Odyssey, and a Sequential Circuits Prophet 5.

Giorgio Moroder said his disco synth sequences were inspired from JmJ Oxygene5 end sequences.

From Here to Eternity 1977 album Giorgio Moroder birth of Synth Disco
sequences Influenced
Kraftwerk 1978 Man-Machine album :
The Robots sequence, Spacelab sequence.

I Feel Love 1977 single (Giorgio Moroder, Donna Summer, Pete Bellotte)
synth sequence on I Feel Love perhaps the most well known copied sequence in electronic music.
A variation of I Feel Love sequence appears on
