Five years ago, when Italians Do It Better was trying to find a spot in the hearts of analogue synth-pop and Italo disco junkies, the label released a compilation that became an instant cult classic: “ After Dark”, featuring tracks by bands like Chromatics, Glass Candy, Farah, and Mirage. Only 237 copies were pressed of that album, and it was only available at the merch stand at some of the bands' concerts. But the record’s success exceeded all expectations, and it has since been reissued several times on CD and vinyl. Now, as a tribute, and with the second volume due out on 15th October, Johnny Jewel is sharing a remastered version of “After Dark” with the world. Download it for free from here. Essential.
