Next up on Nang we get tooled up with our disco pick-axe to mine one of the most authentic Italo vaults, that of once-forgotten-but-now-hero-again Beppe Loda. Having begun DJing in Brescia aged 16, Loda was resident at Gambara's soon to be legendary Typhoon club from 1980 until the club closed in the same year as the Paradise Garage, a year before acid house "officially began" in 1987.
Over the last few years, Beppe's name has walked out of the history books and back into nightclubs and record collections as Scandinavian nu disco folks in particular started paying respect with his DJs sets and 'Typhoon Edits' series popping up all over the European underground and beyond.
Here Beppe collaborates with MC1 to turn in 'Counter'. The original and the adeptly named 'Electro Monster' version features here from the deft Beppe / MC1 pairing; big riffs, big synths and big drama all the way.
Providing some remix action is the new mysterious act 'Radome' (yes it's an alias but no we can't tell you who it is). His mix adds a lazy acid slow-mo groove, analog burn and more than enough oscillators for your money. Also on remix duty is a Latin combo consisting of the most Italian of producers, Bottin, and new Mexican apprentices, Avanti. Their mix brings the track bang into 2010 with the robust and sparkling, synthesizer, dancefloor version.
