Originally released in the summer of 2013, Vincenzo Salvia’s full-length debut, Auto Radio, marries classic Italo disco elements with more modern electronic sounds and is truly a masterwork of the synthwave genre. A concept album realized as fictional radio broadcast from 1985, Auto Radio takes you on an imaginary journey through Italy – along the Amalfi Coast, through the busy streets of Milan, and into the lovely Italian countryside. But more importantly, the album takes you on a very real aural journey through the wonderful sounds of Italo disco’s golden age. Soaring melodies and rolling bass lines transport you to another time and place. But remember, nothing stays the same…
Just as the Eighties came to a close, so too did the popularity of Italo disco, as the country embraced the much different sounds of new wave, Eurobeat, and house music. Fortunately, you can now relive that glorious decade and the wonder and beauty of great Italo disco music, with a modern twist. Lipstick Crush Records is proud to present Vincenzo Salvia’s Auto Radio, for the first time ever on double vinyl – in two colorways (golden yellow and blue and white marble) – with redesigned artwork by George Gold (Nightcrawler) and mastered specifically for vinyl by Jeppe Hasseriis (Dynatron). So grab your suitcase in the night, hop in the car, and just drive. You’re tuned in to Auto Radio and the possibilities are infinite. Lie on the beach of Rimini. Watch the sunset from Maratea. Enjoy every moment of your travels – but be sure to grab a postcard to remember them by, because holidays are not forever.
Ships within 7-10 business days.

Vincenzo Salvia – Nostalgia EP
The new leader of the 80s inspired synth scene in Italy has released a brand new three track EP appropriately entitled Nostalgia. Vincenzo Salvia goes from strength to strength with each new release and his latest EP explores new destinations for this exciting producer and expands his musical horizons a great deal.
Opening up with As The Raindrops Fall it becomes apparent that Vincenzo has foregone his usual italo disco inspired affairs and ventured into a new realm of deeper and more dramatic climes. Sounds are multidimensional, but remaining wistful and delicate. The emotions are melodically caressed with a gentle touch that runs very deep. There’s a hint of melancholy throughout this piece, but there is also a reverance and reflective brilliance to each part. Beautiful, moving music is the end result.
Detouring even further from his comfort zone is Night Signs. This direction is even more exciting as off time percussion emphasises the jubilant synth melodies. The overall sounds takes on a wonderful new colour that bounces and rises with determination and an air of magical victory. As Night Signs completes it’s winning ways the final track rises like a new moon in the night sky.
Eyes In The Mirror feels like the final part of this, experience, almost as it this EP was written as one track and then divided by the hand of the composer. This track recounts and revisits the moods of the previous two chapters absolutely flawlessly. It’s like the final movement of a classical suite that completes the intended story with a veritable conclusion. The music soars through previous elements while adding it’s own flavour to the proceedings and is the perfect finish to a wonderfully entertaining EP.
The Nostalgia EP is presented by Future City Records on their Bandcamp site here for the bargain basement price of $2.99.
