About this item

Calling all space cadets, sofa surfers and audio astronauts, we have an abundance of cosmic heat in store this week, not least this ripper from John Kongos. Rinsed by Baldelli, Roberto Lodola et al. on the Italian scene, "I'm Dreaming..." was produced by John Kongos in 1981 and released on 7", sadly only containing the short vocal version. Now extended and given a fresh and fat 12" pressing by Best Italy, the track powers through dramatic strings, strange (and nonsensical) spoken vocals and that tough sequencer and drum machine groove with newfound energy - ready to rip up a set all over again. Over on the B-side the tone generators, buzzing fx and big bassline take centre stage on a tripped out instrumental version for the more psychedelic club moments.

Cosmic disco classic played regularly by Baldelli, Lodola and in the underground scene, produced by John Kongos in 1981and released on 7 inch, containing only the short vocal version. Now remastered and reissued by Best Italy on 12" containing the full vocal original version plus the instrumental version on the flip.


Patrick says: Best Records smash out another cosmic classic, giving John Kongos' quirky synth and strings chugger a fresh 12" pressing with a respectful extension. An excellent fixture on the Cosmic cassettes, this one's been tough to find for a while, so snap up a copy while you can.
