12inch / Dark Entries Records / 2014


Dark Entries Editions is honored to celebrate the 30th anniversary
“Dancing Therapy” by International Music System, often abbreviated as
I.M.S. In 1983 Maurizio Cavalieri and Giorgio Stefani, the same
musicians who brought you “Spacer Woman” by Charlie, created
International Music System in Vicenza, Italy. Under this moniker, the
two would release a pair of albums of stylized and syncopated electronic
dance songs showcasing the still-evolving advancement of computer and
keyboard-generated music. “Dancing Therapy” was released as a 12” single
in 1984 on the Cavalieri’s own Mr Disc Records. It utilized the Roland
TR-808, Yamaha DX7 and Linn Drum as the main percussion. Giorgio would
hit the two sides of a metal triangle with a drum stick, creating the
high pitched tone break throughout the song. Guest vocalist Rebecca
McLain, an American ballet dancer, sings about getting lost in music as a
means to escape from your troubles. The single anticipated the beats
and sounds of Freestyle music as well as influencing the early House
scene due to radio airplay on Chicago’s WBMX. On the B-side is “Love
Games”, an electro dance song with breakbeats in the vein of Afrika
Bambaataa that features Giorgio on vocals.

Both songs are remastered for vinyl by George Horn at Fantasy Studios
in Berkeley. The vinyl comes housed in a glossy jacket with original
artwork featuring an iconic photo with each band member in side profile
view. Each copy includes a post card insert with lyrics and liner notes.
