Brazilian percussion ornaments don't really enrich the groove, they rather add some colour and make it even more hypnotic. And the vocals, often transfigured by electronic effects, doesn't have any of the soulful and liberating fibre of the usual disco classics. They're wry and sardonic, and perfectly merge with the lush style of the orchestrations and the smart elegance of the interplays: something Burt Bacharach would be proud of (or maybe not, but who cares).
Get caught in the breeze!
Easy Going was the most important disco-music project of Claudio Simonetti (of Goblin fame), Giancarlo Meo and Douglas Meakin. Songs were written and arranged by Simonetti, and performed mostly by himself (keyboards, guitar, bass) and a plethora of Italian collaborators disguised under fake English names. Simonetti still looks back at his disco-music years as the most funny and creative part of his decennal career.
