Klein & MBO - MBO Theme / Wonderful
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 was a huge favourite of masters like Frankie Knuckles, Larry Levan and Ron Hardy eventually being covered by Chip E for his 'MB Dance' track on the seminal Jack Trax EP . 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, these tracks were played to death at The Warehouse, The Paradise Garage and The Music Box and are still DJ favourites today. Don't miss out!!
