Alessandro Alessandroni Afro Discoteca (Gold Cover Repress)

Four Flies
  • 1. Afro Voodoo
  • 2. Afro Darkness
  • 3. Afro Discoteca
  • 4. Afro Sentiment

Alessandro Alessandroni is one of those pioneers, a maestro that built the legend of Italian soundtracks and library music along with Ennio Morricone, Piero Umiliani and many others. His vault testifies how prolific had been those times, with hundreds of tapes and obscure recordings from that period. Among the many, a dusty tape bearing the hand-written label “Afro Discoteca” captured the attention of Four Flies. This EP contains unreleased music composed and produced by Alessandro Alessandroni in the 70s, taken from a dusty tape found in his vault. Afro Discoteca strikes immediately for its modernity and rich textures, sounding unbelievably contemporary. Highly Recommended!!!
