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.

Video-games are action relax everyone's mind, with games such as Tiny Tanks or Tiny Planes and Tiny Planes Beta will be the attractive game people, in addition to games such as Run 3 unblocked or Run 4 unblocked or hacked unblocked games also very charismatic players. You try to play view, it is very attractive!
