Heyyyyy Barbie !
Ken Laszlo, whose real name is Gianni Laszlo Coraini, is an Italian singer whose particularity is to be one of the emblematic figures of the Italo Disco movement.
Notably thanks to intergalactic hits like “Hey Hey guy”.
Huge hit that set every dancefloor on the planet on fire during 1984.
There will be more well-made singles that will go almost unnoticed.
So now is the time to rediscover them !

1984 ... the HUGE intergalactic hit that will reveal him. Surely one of the biggest Dance hits of the decade and which will remain as one of the Masterpieces of the Italo Disco movement. MAS-TER-FUL !
1985 ... change of vintage and new mega hit. The Ken Laszlo version Italo Disco wave literally overwhelms the world and nothing and no one can stop it
1986 ... the years go by...and look alike. Another title of certain quality and therefore...a new hit. Certainly a notch below the other 2 but little Ken still holds the rope. Unchanging the animal ...
1987 ... this time, we feel like a change in style...and especially in inspiration. Could this be the beginning of the end ...?
1987 ... of course, we are still in the Italo Disco of 1st choice but we fall into the all-comer... A recovery in hand is essential !
1988 ... always so Dance, always so rhythmic but it lacks the little spark that makes all the difference ...
1989 ... one would have thought that he would only make a quick passage like many shooting stars of Italo Disco. Well no. Always there the guy !
1989 ... a last title to end the 80s in style. Will he succeed in moving on to the next one...not won all that !
1991 ... and yes, he will have passed the course of the new decade. We find him in Hi-NRG mode, except that the concept is already in a deceleration phase at the beginning of the 90's ... Ken, bad pick all that !
1991 ... the adventure continues for some reason but it is clear that the competition is now light years away. Too late to turn the tide unfortunately ...
1992 ... a decade of 90 which will see him do more some figuration than anything else. He still believes in it but there is only him to believe in it ...
1994 ... the sound is already much more trendy but it is already too late to reverse anything. When it doesn't want anymore, it doesn't want anymore ...
1996 ... surely one of his best titles of the decade. He finally knew how to take the right temperature in terms of the latest trends and it shows. Especially it can be heard !
2003 ... he will even attempt the transition to the following decade. He is far from being ridiculous but that will not be enough to put him back in the race for long ...
2009 ... he made us Italo Disco 2000s version and my faith, the result is not that bad. But all this will remain fairly confidential ...
2014 ... when the young generation pushes the song with ex glory of the 80s. It starts from a good feeling but the result remains somewhat mixed. It's time for the adventure to end once and for all ...
