I-Robots / Virgo Four – Dirty Talk [OPCM12075.1]

I ROBOTS feat DONNA McGHEE/VIRGO FOUR - Dirty Talk

The Opilec Music label has once again cooked up a very special new project for its next EP: ‘Dirty Talk’ is a remake of the classic ’80s Italo disco, proto-house tune by Klein & M.B.O. and has been produced by label boss I-Robots. The release comes with a Club Version made by I-Robots together with the Piatto Brothers, Alessandro & Davide, who bring a truly authentic Italo sound to the project and the cult disco soul singer, Donna McGhee. The Virgo Four original version is a more modern sounding, deeper and stripped back house cut with driving rubbery drums and bouncy melodies.

Klein & MBO – The MBO Theme [DMD609]

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.
