Forgotten Treasures

Arian “Arian” (1981, Favorite France)


via Juno: In 1981, Macedonian singer Arian Krliu headed over to New York to record a bilingual album of disco and boogie treats.

The resultant set was self-released in relatively limited qualities and has since gone in to become an in-demand item amongst collectors of global disco and synth-pop sounds. This officially licensed reissue stretches the album’s original eight tracks over two slabs of wax to allow for a louder, DJ-friendly pressing.

Record one boasts Arian’s English language recordings; the sumptuous AOR disco of ‘Your Love Makes Me A Winner’, the punchy, horn-heavy disco-bogie brilliance of ‘Can’t Say Goodbye’, the K.I.D style dancefloor badness of ‘Sure It’s Funky’ and blue-eyed soul of ‘Still Together’. Over on disc two, you’ll find Croatian language versions of the same tracks.
