Ledernacken ‎– Let Yourself Go (12″)

Eurodance from 1988 with a bit of the EBM-lite thrown in from Ledernacken, a band fronted by German artist Folke Jensen. They had an International hit with “Amok!” back in 1983. Heavy, hip-hop beats and metal guitar give it that crossover edge, the “Tough Mix” has a great deep bass and is partially sung in German. “Ho Ho Ho” mixes funk bass, acoustic guitar, electro beats and metal overtones (with Yello-like lyrics!!) – in other words a right clash of styles. “Ready To Mambo” is a weird jazz funk track, with Yello and Falco influences. Interesting!

    1. Winx, sorry for the delay, I do not. Came across it a couple times but forgot to go back and pick it up since I’ve seen it around in many places (I grabbed this one instead on this page). Next time for sure !!

  2. What a wonderful slice of weirdness. Thanks for sharing it.
