Gestafærsla: Maggi Legó

Þetta er frekar fágætt ítaló sem Maggi heyrði í einhverju mixi fyrir þó nokkru síðan, lagið festist í honum og á endanum hafði hann upp á höfundi mixins, fékk nafn og flytjanda lags og pantaði samdægurs. Lagið er frá 1984 og ítalskt, að sjálfsögðu.

Discogs segir um þessa plötu:
"One of the finest and most accessible examples of the Italo-disco genre; this great record can be enjoyed equally by the most cynical Italo nerd and the average listener alike.
Correct me if I’m wrong, but I believe the subject matter relates to a warning about advent of technology (maybe) and contains an unfortunate spelling mistake: “A-V-I-O-D the confusion” indeed.
Adding somewhat to the mystery of this song is that two very similar versions of the same track were released at around the same time, by the same producers and on the same label. It’s bizarre that such a tiny label would bother to release the same song twice, but of course these unusual elements all add to the appeal of Italo-disco as a genre.
The other version, by Coco Bill, is somewhat rarer and more desired by collectors, but for me this one, by Larry Paul Emmet is by far superior.
The main difference between the two is that the Coco Bill version is generally more subdued and the drums slightly too heavy and muffled, whereas the Larry Paul Emmet recording is held together by a cracking electro beat, clearer sound and an addictive synth line which should get all would-be Italo b-boys on the floor.

Þetta lag er líka til í útgáfu eftir Coco Bill, eiginlega alveg eins, bara smá reverb munur.

Frábært lag.
