26/09/10 w/ Daniele Baldelli

While my mind struggles to remember things from last week, I will never forget the time when I was first exposed to a mix from Daniele Baldelli, cruising around the bends on the Great Ocean Road. This audio paradise completely transcended my deep escapism. Synth pop 12″s played at half speed and morphed into this slowmo evil? Reggae LPs at 45? Somehow all magically blended into a sonic excursion of electronic kraut, afro boogie, jazz rock and disco staples. With three turntables (pre-pitch control), a reel to reel and home engineered filters, this legendary Italian would make Phil Collins sound like the most epic shit ever recorded. DJing at Baia degli Angeli between 1977–1978 and then at Cosmic Club 1979–1984, he had an output of over 100 mixtapes, many of which were created with his likeminded cronies Marco Maldi and TBC. They still sound as visionary to this day and Baldelli continues to spread his original style across Europe, simulating the Cosmic experience for new comers. It’s an honour to be hosting this recording from a party he played at in 2009.
