About this item

Any student of Italy's cosmic scene will tell you that the likes of Baldelli, Loda and Lodola had a healthy respect for the prog of the 70s, so it makes total sense that one of the scene's all time classics was based around a Mike Oldfield record. The work of Giorgio Giordano, Giorgio Dolce and Roberto Zanetti under the G.A.N.G. alias, "Incantations" takes the trippiest elements of Mike Oldfield's stadium filling opus and replays them over a steady slow beat as a white funk groove for astral projecting. Totally over the top, and thus entirely irresistible, the track's already got you hooked with its pagan melodies and percolating groove, so when Stefania Dal Pino stops by to offer her ethereal vocal interpretation of "Foreign Affair" we're in game changing territories. If you're too cool for life changing vocals, there's an instrumental dub on the flip, ensuring all boxes are ticked for the cosmic jock.


Patrick says: Peerless proggy madness here from Best Italy, who hit us with a pristine reissue of G.A.N.G.'s Oldfield inspired cosmic bomb "Incantations". Play it loud enough and you'll unlock next gen abilities.
