Fave Hi-NRG Tracks

Seeing the love for Italo I thought I’d see if I could get some Hi-NRG recommendations. I love it but it always feels like the genre that never quite becomes cool; too mainstream, too show-tuney, somehow never as loved as the disco that came before or house that came after. And to be fair that’s probably because a lot of it was God-awful :slight_smile:

Anyway, a few bangers to start:


Laserdance - Laserdance/ Power Run

Samantha Giles - Let me feel it

Llama - Love on the rocks

The Immortals - Ultimate Warlord

Venus - Hot Sun on Video

Jo Jo - Last Call

Sylvester. - Sex

Vera - Baby won’t you dance with me

Koto - Visitors

And lots more…


more house really but with that Bobby O high energy touch….


This one apparently used to get people doing backflips in certain US clubs when that siren went on…


This is borderline Italo or even just plain Disco, but I consider it High NRG as they later went on to do It’s Raining Men. I actually love this track, been a while since I heard it on a proper system.


Nice. I always meant to check out Two Tons Of Fun because of the Sylvester connection, but never got around to it.

Boytronic - Bryllyant
Got pitched down into a new beat stomper but the original is hi-nrg for sure…


Ha, a bit like Flesh, I hadn’t heard it at the original speed before, or even knew it had been pitched down.

I do like those more leftfield hi-nrg tracks like this, that feel a bit darker than some of the mainstream stuff (I’d include Vicious Games by Yello and Off by Electrica Salsa in that. Stuff I imagined got played at Mark Moore’s Pyramid club)
