The two Italo-disco giants take on a track that was first out in 20009

Two titans of Italo/cosmic disco collide on one 12-inch here, as Daniele Baldelli and Alexander Robotnick remix a cut from Opilec Music boss Gianluca Pandullo, AKA I-Robots, that was first released back in 2009.

Robotnick's take on Kind Of Intrigue is a throbbing, pulsing affair centred around a nagging arpeggiated synth riff and a warm walking bassline. Baldelli, on the other hand, teams up with Marco Diogini to serve up a more blissed-out, cosmic pass, with a hint of acid squelch as the track progresses. Both rubs make full use of the vocal, which appears to be an Australian film director talking about some sci-fi movie or other... 

A contemporary disco masterclass, nuff said!
