Legendary Italo track on Discomagic from 1984, Ottorino Manardi's Ottomix debut was decades ahead of its time when first released... And still does to this day. Spacious, sci-fi, cosmic and salubrious in its production; there's a crisp sheen throughout the tropical synth hook, Otto's yearning heartfelt vocals and the punctuated bass. Developing momentum throughout with more and more layers, each version of this cult classic is a lesson in unhurried arrangement and embracing space. 33 years old and still spotless.
