The Real Background Story:  

ITALO DISCO "SLEAZE":  

Background Soundtrack Music in 80s XXX Adult Videos ๐Ÿ“ผ

(How Italo Disco sometimes ended up, in American hardcore 80s porn video soundtracks)  


Hardly ever discussed, but Italo Disco Instrumental / Dub mixes were featured pretty often in USA/Canadian 80s adult video films.  

Home Video (Betamax / VHS) was introduced in North America in the late 70s.   This new home technology quickly created a HUGE market for home adult films sold on video cassettes.  

The quickest, cheapest and most profitable practice was for XXX film studios to use existing 70s "loops" ๐ŸŽž️ cinema porn films and make them available on home video for sale. ๐Ÿ“ผ

Most of the 70s "loops" porn films had no sound.  Film producers needed many hundreds of hours of background instrumentals for the adult home video releases.  

Nightclub DJs were already playing slowed down ITALO SLEAZE instrumental sets, mostly early morning sets, played for a few hours, before closing time.    

Porn Studios would commission DJs to make reel to reel mixes, with many hours of original "unknown" instrumental dub tunes.   Electronic sounding Italo Disco instrumentals worked well, as made the old 70s "loops" adult films seem much more modern.   ๐Ÿ“ผ

Between 1980 to 1984 this practice was extremely common.   Hi-NRG disco instrumental dub mixes were used too, but the sleazy sounding (and mostly unknown) Italo instrumentals were most popular.

These American and Canadian XXX Video productions ๐Ÿ“ผ would travel around the world, via sales and piracy.  

Sometimes, for music lovers, more legendary for having a cool killer "unknown italo dub mix" soundtrack than for the onscreen action!

๐Ÿ”บ Bill Grainger is known for bringing HI NRG music to Scotland through his legendary Fire Island Club in Edinburgh in the 1980’s and his long running HI NRG show on Radio Clyde (Glasgow & Central Scotland) during the same period. He has worked with Simon Cowell, Eartha Kitt, Evelyn Thomas, Village People, Hazell Dean, Sinitta and many more. he also worked with Record Shack Records and managed Seventh Avenue who later became Big Fun (best remembered for their hit single Blame It On The Boogie). He also toured with The Hitman & Her show with Pete Waterman, Kylie Minogue & Jason Donovan. He then went on to launch CLUBSCENE RECORDS and ACADEMY STREET RECORDS.
๐Ÿ”บ Divine (performer) ๐Ÿ‘  Artist info: ✨ (R.I.P)
Harris Glenn Milstead (October 19, 1945 – March 7, 1988), better known by his stage name Divine, was an American actor, singer, and drag queen. Closely associated with the independent filmmaker John Waters, Divine was a character actor, usually performing female roles in cinematic and theatrical productions, and adopted a female drag persona for his music career. After starring as the lead role in Waters' next film, Female Trouble (1974), Divine moved on to theatre, appearing in several avant-garde performances alongside San Francisco drag collective, The Cockettes. He followed this with a performance in Tom Eyen's play Women Behind Bars and its sequel, The Neon Woman. Continuing his cinematic work, he starred in two more of Waters' films, Polyester (1981) and Hairspray (1988), the latter of which represented his breakthrough into mainstream cinema and for which he was nominated for the Independent Spirit Award for Best Supporting Male. Independent of Waters, he also appeared in a number of other films, such as Lust in the Dust (1985) and Trouble in Mind (1985), seeking to diversify his repertoire by playing male roles. In 1981, Divine embarked on a career in the disco industry by producing a number of Hi-NRG tracks, most of which were written by Bobby Orlando. He achieved international chart success with hits like "You Think You're a Man", "I'm So Beautiful", and "Walk Like a Man", all of which were performed in drag. Having struggled with obesity throughout his life, he died from cardiomegaly, shortly after the release of Hairspray. Described by People magazine as the "Drag Queen of the Century", Divine has remained a cult figure, particularly within the LGBT community, and has provided the inspiration for fictional characters, artworks, and songs. Various books and documentary films devoted to his life have also been produced, including Divine Trash (1998) and I Am Divine (2013).
