Italian composer-arranger Joey Mauro has united his classic Italo sound together with vocals by four different 80s Italo stars. Flashback Records is now presenting the results of these collaborations on two different vinyl releases (FLA 1005 & FLA 1004), both named as “Joey Mauro Presents”. The first part includes new tracks from Fred Ventura and Clock On 5. “You And I” (by Fred Ventura) is a classic mid-80s Italo track with more peaceful verse which grows through the bridge to a powerful refrain. Fred’s voice is the same as 30 years before and together with Joey’s vintage synth sounds, it’s easy to imagine this track to be made in 1984. Clock On 5 is back with its “head man” Raffaele Fiume. “Love Kills” (Mayerling Pt. 2) brings back the more romantic side of Fiume productions. A perfect track for the darkening evenings of autumn.
