About this item
Oh maaan, the majestic "Shadows From Nowhere" gets another outing, this time from SPQR and Best Records, and with a hot new remix from Danilo Braca AKA DanyB. In its original form, the cut is a melancholic Italo-disco dreamboat complete with Bee Gees style vocals, sombre synths, electronic percussion and gliding bass. Lush as you like, and better than 99% of your other records, this is a must have. In any other release, the cinematic "Marie" would be the headline act, but you should be happy you get both beauties on the A-side here. Now flip it for that fresh rework. A New York resident, and frequent visitor to Ibiza, Danilo perfectly emphasises the disco beat at the base of the track, adding echo and hazy pads which wash like the waves on the sandy beaches of the White Island. But far from delivering a standard re-edit, Danilo enlists Mario Gentili from Layer Bows and Alvise Marino to add string arrangements and guitar power respectively, treating us to 9 minutes of pure bliss and infectious rhythm.
Sil says: Released many decades ago, reissued officially some years ago, and reissued again, now with a remix on the flip. Folks, this one is a timeless underrated tune you so need. It is all about the original. Pure class.
