We play tribute to legendary Giorgio Moroder’s 1979 classic and seminal Italo-Synth-Disco tune with our Italian Connection remix package. The original is taken from the album with the same name released on Casablanca Records which also features I Wanna Rock You. Moroder’s career spans over five decades starting in the sixtees. He is a three-time Oscar-winning and two-time Grammy award-winning record producer, songwriter and performer (Top Gun, Flashdance, Midnight Express). He is also known for working with artists like, Donna Summer, David Bowie, Freddie Mercury. We can write many pages with interesting stuff around his work, but this release is about the remixes.
We invited two of the most influential people in the early eightees Italo-Electronic scene. How about Alexander Robotnick, (real name Maurizio Dami), that we all know from his groundbreaking track from 1983 Problèmes D'Amour. A track that originally came out on Italian label Fuzz Dance and created a world-wide stir and still today are played amongst trend setters. He continued working during the ninetees with various projects and is now back in the last years being very active in the Nu-Disco scene.
Secondly we’re very thrilled about having Daniele Baldelli in this project. One of the true pioneers in the Cosmic Disco scene in Italy. Being the resident at Cosmic club in Lazise between 1979-84 and also playing at the Baia Degli Angeli club in Gabicce, where he mixed space disco oddities with all kind of eclectic music from that era. If you’re lucky enough to own one of his super rare Cosmic Tapes, then you understand what it was all about. Many claim him to be one of the best Dj’s ever.
Another old-skooler we invited is Klein & MBO, who released some classics on Atlantic in early eightees such as Wonderful, Dirty Talk and The MBO Theme.
On the more recent notes we have Rodion (Gomma, Eskimo , Nang), Dionigi (Quantic Division) I-Robots (Opilec Music) and L.I.S.
All in all, the remixers didn’t mess up with the original to much. I beleive they treated it with gentle hands and just added their trademark sounds to it. Ok, the I-Robots mix took another angle with it’s deep tribal version but I feel it works nice anyway.
ENJOY THE TRIP
