Giorgio Moroder - E=MC2 (Remixes)

Something of a coup for Martin Brodin's MB Disco label, as they get their hands on this Moroder/Faltermeyer proto-Italo classic from 1979 and get it remixed by a stellar array of Italo/cosmic disco producers. In fact, with Alexander Robotnick, Daniel Baldelli and Klein & MBO all on-board, it's hard to imagine an array of Italo/cosmic disco producers that was much MORE cosmic! Brodin himself, LIS and Rodion all have a pop as well, making this one the Italo crew won't want to miss.

But for all that… it's the I-Robots mix that I'm feeling the most. This is the one mix that does anything radically different, as they move outside the Italo blueprint to deliver a housier refix that puts deep organ sounds over an E2-E4-ish Balearic backwash of tribal percussion. Quality.

A landmark release for the label for sure, and well worth checking.

Out: This week

About: Martin Brodin, you may recall, used to be the mainman behind the fine Swedish house labels Deeplay and Deeplay Soultec, before shifting his focus to more overtly discofied vibes with MB Disco. Established in 2010, the label has already put out releases by disco dons both old (Moroder, Leroy Burgess) and new (Ray Mang, Iliija Rudman).
