ATTENTION: THIS IS RIDICULOUS
EMERGENCY POST. This song is so fucking excruciatingly good I think I'm about to go into cardiac arrest - must share before calling an ambulance. This godlike Italian duo Elegante Orchestra released this single/EP back in November last year, I really had no idea such fantastic live big band disco was still being made, at least on this scale. This song has got it all: huge jazz horn hits, impossibly funky bass, dense webs of percussion, structure and arrangement that are to die for, and a whole lot of soul with an Arabian nights twist. I don't know how many people they've got playing in their band but only the two dudes, Marco Battistini and Marco Pretolani, are cited anywhere... I can offer no explanation for how it can be so good. February Fools Day? Dunno. Only posting a 160 of this, everybody must go buy several copies of this. I wouldn't feel comfortable without at least 4 backup CDs. The 'Original Version' is, as you would expect, just a cut down edition with some minor differences here and there but the DZ remix makes some far more significant changes, letting the percussion run absolutely fucking rampant, turning Prometeus into a tribal jazz explosion. ESSENTIAL. VITAL. CRUCIAL. DOOOOO ITTTTTT.
