Italian DJ Daniele Baldelli created the Afro Cosmic disco scene
Bill Brewster, Wax Poetics, Spring 2005
IMAGINE CIRCLING the planet in a spaceship — weightless, far from home, listening to music on your gravity-modified iPod. Or imagine trying to sprint through a field of corn wearing flippers. Imagine even — indulge me a moment — trying to swim through a vat of black molasses in your trunks and goggles. This dislocating slowness, this... chugging gloop is not unlike the Afro Cosmic sound of Italy.
