About this item
The Italian reissue mafia are back to make us another offer we can't refuse this week, cooking up a maxi 12" boasting extended unreleased versions of a pair of Italo disco and proto house anthems : "Who, What, Where, When & Why" on the A-side and "No Promises" on the flip.
Both tracks are taken from the "Magic Spell" album produced by Mario Boncaldo & Tony Carrasco in 1983, the same guys from Klein & MBO, Plastic Mode, Amnesie and Ris. This unreleased 12" contains for the first time the extended disco versions of these two gems, re-mastered from the archive collection of the legendary Tony Carrasco. A-side cut "WWWW&W" is a super tight trip through the same Italo wormhole as Robotnick's "Problem's D'Amour", so don't be surprised at the deep and funky bass, insistent beat, scratchy guitars and endless cycle of sick synth licks which underpin that brilliantly new wave female vocal. Over on the B-side "No Promises" packs a hefty bassline punch in a more sparse set up, once again wowwing with new wave vocals and strictly sunkissed guitar licks, horns and percussion hits.
Patrick says: Best Records pique my interest and trousers here with unreleased extended versions of these two bombs from Boncaldo & Carrasco. Dopest Italo-disco with infectious new wave vocals - yes please!
