This is the third 12" vinyl release by "FOMDO featuring Arthur Verocai," after "Mystery" and "Step Into My Life."
Far Out Monster Disco Orchestra are in safe hands right here as serial editor and connoisseur Al Kent takes the parts of one of their album highlights -- Daniel Maunick's "Vendetta," arranged by Brazilian genius Arthur Verocai, "the Timeless Maestro" -- and revisions them into a hypnotic dancefloor trip.
And this is really a new release, since these Al Kent 2 remixes are not included on the previous 2-CD set, which includes reconstructions of "Vendetta" by Mark Pritchard and Marcellus Pittman.
Where the original "nu-disco" mix is loose and prone to steamy Latin string brilliance, Al Kent's edits restrain the emotion a little and let it leaks out much more gradually over an enticing weave of percussion. Whether it's the vocal or dub version, both are guaranteed to take your floor to new places.
