Welcome to the YUK FUN music video Friday blog post. Today we feature Hong Kong disco powerhouse Roman Tam and his magical Laserlights (羅文 – 激光中). We couldn’t find the full length video anywhere so you’ll have to make do with this three minute snippet of Roman doing his thing in a selection of futuristic tracksuits and sunglasses.
We first heard the song on Bezier’s Native Lover mix on Beats in Space radio. It’s a brilliant mix of soul, funk, jazz and disco from Hong Kong, Taiwan and Singapore between 1977 and 1984. You can read all about Bezier’s search for the records that make up the mix on the Robot Hustle blog, which is also where we found the lovely image of Roman at the top of this post.
