Project founded in Milan in 1979 by musicians producers Luciano Ninzatti, Stefano Pulga, Matteo Bonsanto and published one year later in the States by Sergio Cossa on Emergency Records. At the time when people were seen dancing on skates on the notes of “Bounce, Rock, Skate, Roll” of Vaughan Mason And Crew, “I’m Ready” by super-studio-group Kano it represented a great way to start the decade of the 80s for the Italian productions. Its famous bass-line has been sampled tons of times and the original track still sets dance floors on fire. On the flip side “Holly Dolly” it’s a pioneering example of stripped down electronic synthesized disco which will become a trademark of many productions to come in those years.
Voice of the Kano project and former percussionist of Eric Clapton, George Benson and Chaka Khan, Glen White in 1982 wrote and arranged “Be Free”, one of the most intriguing and elegant Italian disco / boogie song together with the producer Louis “Gigi” Figini (former member of project “Koxo” alongside the unforgettable Leonardo Re Cecconi). An overlooked gem by the West Indian artist brought back to the musical community!
Love N Music is an original classic Italo Disco with an Hi-NRG touch. The original song starts with a sweet female voice that seemed to be an hymn to love, a strong pre-house atmosphere soon introduces an extravagant synths as a prelude to the hot bass-line combined with the Italian rap of Celeste. Many of you will recognize its melody used in 2002 by Felix da Housecat on his tune “Happy Hour”. RIS is another one superbe collaboration by Tony Carrasco (Klein + M.B.O.) and the always excellent Aldo Martinelli. Remix by the dj and Danish record collector Flemming Dalum.
