Image: 1580844 Super cool 12" vinyl double pack featuring a superb selection of obscure slo-mo gems from the 70s and early 80s that found favour on Italy's Afro Funky / Cosmic disco scene receiving heavy rotation from legendary DJs like Daniele Baldelli & Beppe Loda. First to drop is 'Movin' In All Directions', a bass-heavy grooving monster from People's Choice, laden with lush Dexter Wansel strings and pounding keys closely followed by the mesmerising 'Funky Bass' by Arpadys, plucked from the French space cadets' super-rare eponymous album. Next up is Ba Ba Go Go from Topo, an extremely hard-to-find minimal Italo masterpiece with the dirtiest sleaziest bass and guitar riffs, crazy synths and wigged-out cat noises followed by the equally funky and only slightly less out-there instrumental version of B-Boy classic 'Rapper Dapper Snapper' from Edwin Birdsong. Pull out Disc 2 for four more afro-funky killers including big Baldelli play 'Stomp and Buck Dance', a superb Rhodes-driven floorfiller from 70s funkateers from The Crusaders, Airto's heady disco-tinged Afro-Brazilian anthem Parana, the psychedelic experimental funk of Tangerine Dream's highly sought-after 'Choronzon' and finally the druggy undulating hypnotic in-demand dub version of Will Powers' Adventures In Success. A great chance to own these Cosmic classics loud-pressed on wax as they were originally meant to be heard.
