Magical Body

Clone Classics

Did these Italian producers really make the world a better place with 'Magical Body'? It sounds like an outrageous claim, but this Italo classic contains elements that shaped electronic music. The soaring female vocal provided a blueprint for house, the warm synths informed Detroit techno and the pulsing groove inspired electroclash and electro disco's new school. Most tellingly, 'Magical Body' still sounds as fresh now as it did in the '80s.
