Valli is one of the Kings of the Italian disco scene. His skills as a producer
,writer and arranger can be heard on some of the biggest Italo hits ever
including Azoto, Passengers, Taffy & Peter Richard.
For disco fans his crowning glory was his
work with studio band Tantra. Apart from a CD single release in the early 90’s
and the inclusion of ‘Hills Of Katmandu’ on our ‘European Connection’ volume of
Disco Discharge this much loved catalogue has been out of print since their
Recharge is very proud to bring you this lovingly restored collection which
features virtually everything recorded under the name ‘Tantra’. Disc 1 includes the first two albums in
their entirety and ends on a spectacular note with the full Patrick Cowley remix
of ‘Hills Of Katmandu’. This is not the unfinished version that has been widely
available on vinyl for many years. This exclusive version actually features
Patrick Cowley’s trademark added synth’s and percussion and is up there with his
remix of ‘I Feel Love’ in the disco hall of fame. Disc 1 features the final
Tantra album which features their other massive cult favourite ‘A Place Called
Tarot’ as well as the haunting ‘Macumba’ suite. The rest of the disc is packed
with all the 7” and 12” mixes including the incredibly rare Spanish language
versions of ‘Hills Of Katmandu’ and ‘Wishbone’ as well as the Disconet remixes
of ‘Get Happy’ and ‘Top Shot.
– The Collection’ is undoubtedly one of the most important Disco Recharge
releases and demand for this release will be high from a number of different
areas since Tantra transcended many boundaries musically. This is an absolute
‘must-stock’ for all serious dance music vendors.
