Spectacular Italo disco 12” featuring two superslick synth-groovers from the mighty Klein & MBO, aka Mario Boncaldo and Tony Carrasco, whose genre-bending electro-Italo proto-house sound hit big on both the NY disco and Chicago house scenes of the early 80s. Side A slides in with the deeply electro ‘MBO Theme’ whose killer blend of disco-tinged techno beats, quirky 80s robotic rap-style lyrics and catchy guitar licks. Flip over and you are treated to the the aptly named ‘Wonderful’. First we have the fantastic eight-minute disco-dub version featuring the gorgeous sweet vocals of Rosanna Casale followed by the hugely in-demand instrumental version. Sounding almost like a live mix, this tech-heavy beauty punches out synths and drum machine effects that are way ahead of their time! Minimal Italo production at its best.
