Milan, Italy, 1983. In the midst of the 80’s economic boom,
which gave an injection of optimism after the heavily political 70’s,
a group of young local musicians meet every night in a basement
to rehearse and record a peculiar breed of Italian disco music.
Originated from the ashes of various other projects,
and rooted in the broader jazz-funk tradition,
the group creates music which is equally inspired
by contemporary fusion as well as by the first wave
of the italo-disco sound. Fast forward 35 years
and the genuinely mediterranean flavor of Qvark’s
demo recordings are still enjoyable for the groovy quirkiness
of a project which has been to long forgotten.
After an intense work of audio restoration of such demo tapes,
heavily affected by time, Early Sounds is pleased to present
a compilation which is an important find to define the sound
of late 70's and early 80's Italian club sound.
