Blackway & Helene released ‘Music For Us’ in 1982, creating a hit in the process. The plush Italo vibes positively pour out of the track with stylish aplomb – it’s no wonder the track has been picked up for reissue by House Of Music. The A side is given over to the original vocal and instrumental versions of the track, both of which feature a veritable army of synths to get down to, all held together with a pleasingly loose vibe. Marking this release out in particular though is the remix on the flip from Danilo Braca – a true Italian underground hero with just the right ear to take the track into a whole new dimension without losing sight of the original vibe.
‘Music For Us’ is Italo-Disco in its pure state! If the two original versions on this 12inch reissue’s main side by House of Music are “untouchables” as the “purists” rightly claim, the rebuilt version by Danilo Braca on the flip must also be considered a masterpiece! The original vocal is hot, Helene has a very sexy voice, while the instrumental has a strong groove, thanks to the excellent synthesizers and bass. It seems that Junei’s 1987 ‘Let’s Ride’ was inspired by this milestone published five years earlier by Stefano Zito.
The sequences of this song, which has become legendary, now sound good, precise and without the distortion of the previous reissues.
By turning the vinyl you’ll find a later work by Stefano Galante, the same composer and arranger who, along with Claudio Casalini, at the end of the 80s created a song renamed ‘Music For All Of Us’. 13 sumptuous minutes completely rebuilt by Danilo Braca. The Italian DJ based in the Big Apple is a true magician in radically transforming a song without losing its original charm. His version, renewed with a more modern and universal taste, will certainly please everyone. Very captivating, it will attract many new young Italo-Disco fans.
