I’m sorry, I think I’ve come


Apologies for The Fast Show rip off but a package that includes not only a Prin Thomas remix but also a Weatherall remix is worth getting damp trousers for.

I’ve no idea who Daniele Baldelli & DJ Rocca are and am too excited to care. The Weatherall remix is one of those weirded out indie disco mixes that he does so well. No evidence of his Krautrock fetish here. The Prin Thomas remix is inevitably one of those spun out cosmic disco remixes.

Blurb: Off the back of their sold out album, Daniele Baldelli & DJ Rocca are set to release a limited run 12″ featuring remixes of the highest order. ‘Complotto Geometrico’, ‘Space Scribble’ & ‘A TV Show’ are the tracks of choice, remixed by none other than Andy Weatherall, Prins Thomas and Luke Solomon respectively. The Weatherall remix initiates with a gentle bounce. The synth lines begin to peak and trough whilst back-drafted guitar riffs ring home around the affected vocal sample that oozes in. A subtle cybernetic atmosphere builds around the melodic rhythm which in turn ebbs and flows through out. It’s seeping with that Weatherall magic, making it perfect for any time of night. After his previous collaborations with Lindstrom et. al. we we’re very excited to see what Prins Thomas would conjure up for this remix. Cosmic energy instantly emanates from the mix, giving a lighter vibe to the melodic depth that the Weatherall mix delivered. It boasts slightly more acidic elements that switch the dancefloor mentality from ‘steady groover’ to ‘floor-mover.’ To finish, Luke Solomon provides a weirdo-disco rendition, full of elastic synth work, a bumping house groove and plenty of raw soul. Probably the more energetic of the three, Solomon proves that he deserves his place as Disco House royalty.

  1. sounds good, chances of getting one will be nil!

  2. Daniele Baldelli is widely credited to have actually kickstarted the whole cosmic disco subgenre with his dj-sets in the late seventies. Given the amount of times I’ve read people say he inspired them, at least one-third of those who attended his gigs went on to become DJs. He has legendary status, and a whole chapter dedicated to him in Bill Brewster and Frank Broughton’s “The Record Players: The Story of Dance Music Told by History’s Greatest DJs”. For more info: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Afro/Cosmic_music‎. DJ Rocca, on the other hand, is one of the more internationally respected italian DJs. He started his career with Italian acid-jazzers Bossa Nostra in the nineties (I was an acid-jazz fan at the time and I’m afraid I still am), then moved on producing breakbeat with Maffia Soundsystem (notice the pattern here? Talk about reinforcing stereotypes about Italy!). After that he decided to move into international waters, working with Zed Bias as Maddslinky and collaborating with Dimitri From Paris.
    Basically, this record is an Avengers-size meeting of dance music legends, so thank you for highlightning it.

  3. Top stuff everyone.

  4. It was not my intention to make you feel ‘a bit of a fool’, I’m sorry about that, I just thought that those bits of info could be interesting for you and all other readers.
    I probably know no more than 1/100 of what you know about EDM: just for once, being Italian, I’ve had the advantage of a closer perspective. About your kind offer, I truly feel like a painter who’s been shown a spot at the Sistine Chapel to tamper with, but for that exact same reason I obviously cannot accept it: your blog is YOUR work of art and is not mine to mess with. I can only diminish its value. It’s already an honour, after so many years of lurking, to have the chance of posting the occasional comment and be so gentlemanly greeted by you.
    Thank you again and have a nice weekend, all.
