About this item

Massive summertime Balearic vibes going on here! After a couple of cult contemporary cuts, Neapolitan firm Futuribile set their sights on the past with a reissue of Il Giardino dei Semplici's "Carnevale Da Buttare". Originally released on the Italian funk / boogie / jazz-funk team's 1982 LP "...E Amiamoci", the track is packed with coastal cool and cocktail hour groove, fusing bubbling bass, refined percussion and a whole load of Italian emotion as it skirts the shoreline to the wine bar. In addition to the original song, this 45rpm 12" record provides an instrumental rework of "Carnevale Da Buttare" by Raffaele 'Whodamanny' Arcella, the son of Il Giardino dei Semplici's keyboardist and founding member Andrea Arcella. Whodamanny makes a nice balance between the sophistication of the original and the functionality of the 21st Century club, swapping the blazing saxophones for mind-melting synth solos that takes things into other realms. Hot stuff!

STAFF COMMENTS

Patrick says: More Neapolitan magic here as Futurible reissue the Balearic groove of Il Giardino Dei Semplici's "Carnivale Da Buttare" on a maxi 12". Keeping it in the family, Whodamanny (son of Il Giardino's keyboardist) chips in with a killer synth laden instrumental version on the flip. This baby is red hot!
