From the same vibrant cinematic landscape of '70s studio supergroups as Goblin, The Pawnshop, The Feedback, andThe Braen's Machine comes the Magnetic System, the Italian incognito dream-team composed of Milano prog keyboardist Vince Tempera, Cinevox sibling Franco Bixio, and video nasty maestro Fabio Frizzi (whose career it launched). Bridging giallo jazz-bass-driven prog and the arrival of home studios and synthesizers, the film music of the Magnetic System marked a sea change in Italian genre film music, promoting melodic electronics to the forefront of Italian pop culture and preempting the first murmurs of Italo disco and synthpop.
Originally only released on 7" by the Cinevox label with two songs "Godzilla" and "Escape", this compilation gathers a wider selection of the trio's compositions that fall within the stylistic parameters of the Magnetic System's creative blueprint; culling drum-heavy synthesized psychedelic soundtracks with sympathetic leanings to the white funk/cosmic disco murmurings of the era - highly recommended!!!
