The "Space" project was put together by producer JP Illescuo in 1977. It all started with the "Magic Fly" melody which was originally a slow-tempo piano piece by Didier "Ecama" Marouani. JP added Paris session musician stalwarts Roland Romanelli, and Jannick Top into the mix and energized a upbeat and futuristic sound based around synthesizers and a pounding 4/4 beat. The 'Magic Fly' single was originally released in 1977 and became a hit all over Europe and the US. The album of the same name followed the same year featuring 7 tracks of futuristic soundscapes for the downtrodden 70s.
Beppe Loda and Egotrya have lately found a place on Nang's shelf, being our well received 126th release. The single 'Wind', with remixes from Andromeda Orchestra and JMRS, lead us to decide to re-issue one of their most outstanding records to date: on the 24th of November we're dropping Egotrya's 'Four Elements'.
The Weatherall remix initiates with a gentle bounce. The synth lines begin to peak and trough whilst back-drafted guitar riffs ring home around the affected vocal sample that oozes in. A subtle cybernetic atmosphere builds around the melodic rhythm which in turn ebbs and flows through out. It's seeping with that Weatherall magic, making it perfect for any time of night.
After his previous collaborations with Lindstrom et. al. we we're very excited to see what Prins Thomas would conjure up for this remix. Cosmic energy instantly emanates from the mix, giving a lighter vibe to the melodic depth that the Weatherall mix delivered. It boasts slightly more acidic elements that switch the dancefloor mentality from 'steady groover' to 'floor-mover.'
To finish, Luke Solomon provides a weirdo-disco rendition, full of elastic synth work, a bumping house groove and plenty of raw soul. Probably the more energetic of the three, Solomon proves that he deserves his place as Disco House royalty.
