Children Of The Sky - Inc. Francisco Dub
The label has been two years in the planning and all started when label boss Marco was at the Gratis Club season closing party a few years ago when cult Italian figure Francisco (of Edizioni Mondo/Jolly Music) was DJing. "At some point, he came out with the instrumental of this tune, and I was in heaven," remembers Marco. "It was a super cheap Italo 12" from Ala Bianca in Italy, a "bad" cover of Figli delle Stelle... I asked Francisco if he was up for editing the track in case I got rights, and here we are."
In its original instrumental form, the track packs all the coke-fuelled emotion, sparkling keys and synth brass you could ever hope for. As the pristine production soothes the speakers with flawless Italo chintz, you're instantly transported to the heat and humidity of a Mediterranean club, surrounded by beautiful women in daring eye shadow and coked up men in headbands. Over on the B-side, Italian hero Francisco strips things back a touch, locks into the groove and lets loose with the sampler serving up a classic 80s dub mix.
