Italo-disco don Robotnick bequeaths archival remixes of his classic ‘Computer Sourire’ to reissue label Tempo Dischi

Famed as much for his funky little finger as his taps-aff DJ sets in Manchester, Robotnick is a guaranteed party starter, and so are his tracks. Originally issued on 12” in 1983 (and also on his first album ‘Ce N’est Q’un Début’ (1984) beside the GOAT ‘Problèmes D’Amour’), the funky budge of ‘Computer Sourire’ appears here in a rudely acid overdriven remix with some extra pep in the arps, and also as a tweaked out edit by Tempo Dischi. It’s also backed by one of our very favourite Robotnicks; the instant gratification of ‘Dance Boy Dance’ with its blushing pads, breathy vox and loping acidic bass line that made it a staple on Chicago’s legendary WBMX radio.
