Commentary

Mr. Gak Sato, who had been the label director of the Italian label and my long-term friend, asked me to remix Gian Piero Reverberi’s composition for the 1969 film “Malizie Di Venere (Devil in the Flesh).” I didn’t know the movie at that time, but I loved the music featuring female scats, which was already impressive and funky to boost the party mood. As the music was live-recorded without a metronome, of course, it was challenging to adjust tempo-changing performances to the fixed tempo by using my AKAI sampler (when it was still a pre-Pro Tools era). However, it was a lot of fun to cook those vintage materials from Italy and revitalize them into a modern dance/breakbeat music.
