I-Robots present: Craxi Disco – Brennero Express

OPCM 12 85 I-Robots pres. Craxi Disco - Brennero Express

Opilec Music is pleased to announce the re-release of Craxi Disco’s 2011 classic ‘Brennero Express’, which has been specially remastered and now includes a remix from Spanish producer James Rod.

Craxi Disco, aka Gianni Crucini, is an Italian producer based in London. After years playing synths in a krautrock band and as resident at the famous Italian music temple Link, he also promoted plenty of Italo disco nights in the UK. Nowadays he is known as a heretic of Italo cosmic tradition who has brought the sound into the new century with a strong emotional and transcendental vision that separates him from the crowd.

His tune ‘Brennero Express’ is a cosmic adventure soaked with a parochial ‘80s Italo’s mood and a worldlynostalgia linked to the hippie culture of the 70’s that ended in a sewer overrun with post punk and football hooligans. The track is like a hypnotic night drive on the Brennero Autobahn which connects the Italian Adriatic Riviera and Germany. It’s like a motorik jamming session between Pink Floyd’s David Gilmour and La Dusseldorf and will really carry dance floors away.

Then comes James Rod, a disco, funk and boogie talent who releases on labels like Paper and Midnight Riot as well as his own Golden Soul Records, always with a dynamic style. His Power Guitar Remix is a slower, squelchy, 80’s soundtrack-style stomp which has been extended for the new generation of nu-disco cosmic turntablists.

This is another cultural release from the ever classy Opilec Music label.
