In this segment we will be featuring German Musician and Producer Harold Faltermeyer. Harold worked with Donna Summer and Giorgio before he caught his big break with film director Martin Brest; who hired him to compose music for his film “Thief of Hearts” in 1984. This opportunity opened the door for more high profile work.
The same year he did the “Thief of Hearts” soundtrack he was hired to compose the theme for the 1984 film “Beverly Hills Cop”, starring Eddie Murphy. Here is a listen to that track “Axel F”.
Harold Faltermeyer’s iconic hit, “Axel F”, was one of the biggest breakthroughs in EDM music in the U.S., shooting to number three on the Billboard Top 100 Hot Chart. The interesting thing about this track is that Harold used three pieces of equipment to create this song; the Roland Jupiter-8, JX-3P and TR-808. He used the arpeggiator on the Jupiter to loop the complicated chords to be played with one finger. This song is still popular till this day. That’s it for Vinyl’s from the past.
