Beat Electric Is A Capricorn  

Claudio Simonetti and Giancarlo Meo were one of the most important production teams in the italo boogie scene. They produced or performed in Goblin, Kasso, Crazy Gang, Vivien Vee, Easy Going, and many more. This is my favorite Capricorn track, it has much more soul than I need Love. It is a perfectly built dancefloor burner that has a Kano style vibe but with a creepy vocoder treatment. The instrumental is brilliant.

    Nice one LeBaron. This is one of my favorite early Italo Cuts.

    Many thanks for a new favorite track. Any possibility of posting the instrumental?

    Hey my mp3 skips at 4:47 did you find this on your original copy???

    Sorry I meant 4:37. Mine skips.

    I will sort that out this evening and I will add the instrumental too. My copy is well loved, so there is a lot of noise on the instrumental particularly. I haven't listened to the rip, but the skip is probably a glitch.

    I posted the instrumental. I don't hear a skip.

    I love Capricorn's earlier stuff (pre I Need Love). "Maybe No" and "Pow Pow Pow" (both released in 1981) are also good tracks as well.
