Tony Orlando Don't Let Go A 1978 masterpiece and certified classic from the Paradise Garage era, Tony Orlando’s ‘Don't Let Go’ gets the official remastered reissue treatment from Spaziale Recordings. One side contains a killer Versione Spaziale laid down by Stefano Ritteri and the flip holds the original remastered, extended version. Uplifting synth, string and horn heavy disco with an exuberant vocal to fire up any dancefloor, Tony Orlando’s ‘Don’t Let Go’ is the kind of record that has that innate strut hardwired into it. One that puts a smile on the face and swagger in the step, whether it be striding down the sidewalk or letting loose in the club. Rework wizard Stefano Ritteri also serves up a cosmic disco interpretation on the A side. Opting for stratospheric synths in place of Tony’s vocals, supplemented with a driving beat and looped up chants of ‘Don’t Let Go’, it’s a monster of a cosmic dub. Spaziale Recordings 12"
A. Mislayene El Fen Next up for Spaziale Recordings - one of the most sought-after Arabic disco records A. Mislayene - 'El Fen' finally gets a long awaited fully official remastered reissue, original copies of which sell for close to £300. This 12" was only issued in seriously limited quantities on the tiny Stip records label out of France in 1976. Sought for the chuggy exotic rhythms of the B side 'El Fen' at long last this eastern-influenced disco masterpiece is available to those who don't happen to have a spare £500! Aït Meslayene was a Kabyle traditional singer who moved to Paris to try his luck. He was driven by an Algerian manager who pushed him to make a "disco" album, a new trend at that time. The recording found place in a studio near Paris, with an American drummer from the funk group "Ice". For SPZ002, Viaggio Recordings head honcho Stefano Ritteri steps up to provide an exquisite “Versione Spaziale” of 'El Fen' on the A side, with the original version and 'Yemma' taking the flip.
