Daniele Baldelli & Marco Dionigi - Eternity E.P. EpPurchased

Artist: I-Robots pres.: V.A. Title: Daniele Baldelli & Marco Dionigi - Eternity E.P. Label: Opilec Music Release: October 10th 2016 Cat. No.: OPCM 12 059 Format: 12" Vinyl/Digital Opilec Music is back with this special V.A. signed by the Cosmic acclaimed Italian disco stars Daniele Baldelli & Marco Dionigi, both regular remixers at the label and close friends to Gianluca "I-Robots" Pandullo. Having never been released before on vinyl these tracks show the remixers ability to rework old school material into an unique modern sound. 1980's "GoGoGo" by the Swiss electronic pioneers Schaltkreis Wassermann is taken from the classic "Psychotron" album produced by PJ & Stella (R.I.P) Wassermann, which has recently been re-released by Private Records Germany. Daniele Baldelli was the first true pioneer of Electronic Krautrock that was huge on the Italo scene in the early eighties when he was the resident DJ at the famous Cosmic Club. "Psychotron" was a regular on the Cosmic Club dancefloor, hence Baldelli & Dionigi selecting "GoGoGo" to rework. The Units were one of America’s first synthesizer bands playing and recording together in the late seventies and early eighties. They were notable for their use of synthesizers in place of guitars pioneering a genre now known as “synthpunk” and laying the way for much of what was to come in electronic music. "The Right Man" is coming from ‘Connections’ project a definitive collection of over 24 of the band’s songs written between 1977 and 1984 and remixed for the dance floor in 2011 by a renowned and international cast of over 40 DJs, producers and bands at the heart of the contemporary club scene. This project celebrates the futuristic Units along with the innovative DJs that first played them. Like Cosmic Disco pioneer Daniele Baldelli, who remixed early 7” Units records “live” on the dance floor as early as 1979 giving a glimpse into how the innovative music that ended up on the dance floor was often an unintentional collaboration between DJs and bands, inspiring each other and cheering each other on. This cult and pioneering track was found on a 1981 C90 tape in the vaults of Susanna Massaia, a close friend and fan of the man who made it, namely the legendary Johnson. He is the original solo songwriter of the tune and its great chorus of "Vamos A La Playa, oh, oh, oh, oh". He recorded it with the mighty Monuments band at TKS studio and years after he formed Righeira (aka the duo of Johnson and Michael), the track was produced with la Bionda and went on to sell more than three million copies. Thus making it a classic hit in the worldwide disco scene. Hearing this track in its early original form is a real landmark moment that takes us back to the hugely influential Turin scene of the eighties and re-writes the history of early Italo. In its original form ‘Vamos A La Playa’ is a dark and broody disco beat with tight drums and hits, robotic dehumanised vocals, and futuristic synths that formed a clear blueprint for years to come in dance music. Contemporary stars Baldelli & Dionigi then step up to produce some fantastic new versions. This first is a cosmic remake that updates the track for modern tastes with hard hitting drums and stiff percussion that really demands you dance. The I-Robots add a subtle touch with their edit which is very direct. "Imago" was previously released on the "V.A. - I-Robots present: We re Opilec... Vol. II" compilation that sees the album dive into deep, Cosmic & Italo Nu Disco territory. Who better to kick things off than the "Godfather" of Cosmic Italian Disco Daniele Baldelli. He teams up with Marco Diognigi for the superb Imago which very much sets the tone for the whole release. Design by Tim Paulvé Artefract France
