A lot of rare Italo house has been returning to the shelves lately. ‘Italian Dream House’ compilations on the Young Marco-helmed Safe Trips and reissues from classic Milanese label Vibraphone Records have answered the prayers of collectors far and wide, but the latest release from Bari label Cosmic Rhythm shows that quality and price aren’t inextricably linked in the vinyl game.

First appearing on prominent Italian imprint UMM Records, the original pressing of KGB’s ‘Detroit 909’ can be bought on Discogs at a reasonable price. So rather than your typical reissue, the fledgling label run by Nicola Loporchio (Cosmic Garden) and Michele Lamacchia (Rhythm Of Paradise) will pay homage to the track produced back in 1991 with remixes both solo and together under the Rydm Sectors and Loss Of Gravity monikers.

Receiving the Cosmic Rhythm treatment with increased levels of humidity and traces of new age, the Rhythm Of Paradise reinterpretation can be streamed below. Once the centrepiece alongside Iacobucci’s buoyant chord stabs and ascending scales, the heartfelt and, let’s admit it, quintessentially ’90s vocal is pushed to the back of the mix, but none of the graceful atmospherics are lost in the process.

Detroit 909 (Cosmic Rhythm Vision) is out August 28th on Cosmic Rhythm – pre-order the vinyl here.
