B I need love (Instrumental)
Being a fan of horror movies and absolutely in love with the work of italian director Dario Argento, I have come accrosse the name of Claudio Simonetti before. He and his band Goblin is responsible for the music score of horror movies such as Profondo rosso, Susperia and Phenomena by Argento and they also wrote for the score for the very classic zombie movie Dawn of the dead by George C. Romero.
Before I found out about the song I need love I was oblivious to Simonettis work in dance music. In 1978 he started to produce disco music for artist like Easy Going and Vivien Vee. In 1980 he released the first single Capricorn with his own project Capricorn.
The single I need love was released in 1982 and was a underground hit in Europe. It also made an impact on the dancefloors in Detroit and Chicago, where the kids liked to breakdance to the instrumental version.
I really love both the sound and funkyness of this song. A shuffeling hi-hat and a very groovy bassline goes along way. And even if you hear that the sound is oldschool it has qualities that still sounds fresh today. Maybee due to the fact that the synths are accompanied with live bass, drums and guitar.
I found my copy at Tradera and payed 15,56 €.
