Women I Love: Part I

Since the North American drop of Sally Shapiros sophomore album this past October, I decided to portion off a little corner of my heart for this Swedish disco princess. Hidden behind her pseudonym stage name, this mysterious Swede has never performed live or done live interviews (according to Wikipedia). While the album wasn’t that groundbreaking or inspirational in that drop-everything-and-dance way, there is something about her voice that is very addictive in soothing way, or maybe soothing in an addictive way. She manages to bring a sensitivity and soft-key to Italo disco very similar to what Erland Oye did for folk-electronica. And you know what that means: great tracks to remix.

Johan Agebjorn (the producer of her debut album) recently released this remix of a song originally by Don Juan Dracula and added Sally’s voice over it to create something perfect for these El Nina days. The second track is a remix of a Sally Shapiro song by the Kimono Kops that we picked up this past summer on palmsout.
