The Opilec Music label has once again cooked up a very special new project for its next EP: 'Dirty Talk' is a remake of the classic '80s Italo disco, proto-house tune by Klein & M.B.O. and has been produced by label boss I-Robots.
The release comes with a Club Version made by I-Robots together with the Piatto Brothers, Alessandro & Davide, who bring a truly authentic Italo sound to the project with the use of the same vintage hardware utilised on the original (Roland SH1, Roland 808 etc). Davide Piatto was part of seminal act N.O.I.A., was the musician that provided the guitar & synth lines and all the electronic programming on the original 1982 version and was behind the Klein & M.B.O. productions along with Mario Boncaldo (r.i.p.) and Tony Carrasco.
The original recording featured the vocals of Italian pop singer Rossana Casale and this vocal mix alongside the ever popular instrumental played a key part in the formation of Chicago fledgling House music sound. For this re-imaging I-Robots decided to update it and contacted cult disco soul singer, Donna McGhee of The Fatback Band, The Phreek and Universal Robot Band to provide a stunning new vocal.
The club version is a dazzling bit of cosmic, lovably retro sounding disco-house with lush arps, sombre chords and seductive vocals from McGhee. Arranged and produced faithfully like the original, this is sure to once again grab the's world's attention.
The Virgo Four original version (a digital only track) is a more modern sounding, deeper and stripped back house cut with driving rubbery drums and bouncy melodies, whilst the I-Robots Reconstruction is a deep and atmospheric, almost spiritual version, with whispered vocals, standout melodies and tons of colour in its grooves.
This very special release is a collectors' edition that very much charts the earliest roots of Chicago house music. A remix Ep will follow soon with reworks by Gene Hunt and Radio Slave
