AOR Disco's album of 2015 has to be Abstract Heart by  Zervas and Pepper. From Cardiff yet marinated in the sound of 1970s California, singer-songwriters Paul Zervas and Kathryn Pepper describe their music as "cosmic folk rock, prairie pop, spaghetti FM and country rock."  Although we love their previous work  - such as the amazing Buffalo Crow, Lookout Mountain and Startin' Over - Abstract Heart is Zervas and Pepper's finest achievement.

Luxxury's on a roll at the moment and swiftly following on from his Led Zeppelin remix here's number 16 the series: a live revamp of Petula Clark's 1978 disco cover of the AOR colossus that is I'm Not In Love.

On October 30th Seahawks release a collection of remixes called Deep Haul. One cut that didn't make it is this excellent swamp rock mix of Didn't Know I Was Lost by Black Peaches, which is available exclusively at AOR Disco.  

"We love Black Peaches and this mix is so good we'd like as many people to hear it as possible," say Seahawks. "So here's a free WAV download.

Ride Every Wave is the follow-up to 2013's Barracuda, the album of languid but highly inventive psychedelic remixes and mash-ups by Flying White Dots of 1970s Californian rock radio classics.

Another winning remix just in from Luxxury...

"Okay here's #11 in my compilation series for AOR Disco," says Paul Hillery. "I felt I had started to lose my way with Volumes #8 and #9 in the series, as I headed off into disco, soul and even into island territories. This mix takes it back to the singer songwriter vibe of my earlier mixes. Hope you enjoy it. Music is love. x." 

Thanks to Paul for this latest exclusive mix - and also for introducing us to Tufano-Giammarese, our top obscure find of the autumn so far. 


"Blending genres of soul, rock and pop to create a uniquely catchy brand of sound, Daryl Hall & John Oates became lauded as pop music's most successful duo," says Martijn Soetens, music director of NPO Radio 6 Soul and Jazz in the Netherlands and the man behind the Jeff Porcaro Collection. "They met when separately performing at a band competition in Philadelphia, Hall with his band The Temptones, and Oates with his band The Masters.
