About this item

It was only a matter of time before Best Records reissue department turned their attention to this ALL TIME CLASSIC! Originally released by percussion king Tullio De Piscopo in 1983, "Stop Bajon (Primavera)" became a favourite in Rimini Discotheques, the Balearic Islands and even Chicago during the early house days. Impressive stuff, but it doesn't even begin to tell you how unique this Italian anthem really is. Rolling toms, sharp rim shots and a solid kick combine for a groove that's both tough and sensual, while the the jazzy horns, twinkling Rhodes and cool synths convey a distinctly Mediterranean flavour. Chuck in the endless pulse of the one-note bassline, chanted nonsensical lyrics and great guitars and you've got a classic on your hands. An official anthem for Mancunian Balearic legend Moonboots, along with every other DJ worth their salt, this is totally legendary. This special limited edition release from Best Record Italy features for the first time the original acapellas (tracked down during tape restoration) plus the balmy fourth world Balearic bomb "Stadera", previously available only on the first Italian pressing.

STAFF COMMENTS

Patrick says: Official remastered reissue of possibly the greatest track to come from Italy. Well Balearic, completely cosmic and kind of jazz funk, this summery scorcher is an essential part of any record collection. Bonus brilliance comes courtesy of the ace fourth world wonderment of "Stadera", previously only available on the original Italian pressing of the 12".
