Such an epic disco classic track Tantra’s Hills of Katmandu is and Tim Taylor VS Thor 54 have actually perfected on that classic track. Both versions are quite amazing and Hills Of Katmandu is one of my all time favorite disco tracks. It still sounds quite fresh and way ahead of it’s time when this was first released back in 1979 30+ years ago. Ok it’s not your typical disco track that you would find on an American disco compilation but it’s so worth hearing, owning, loving and appreciating. It’s classic underground, it’s very underground dance club, Studio 54 and so on. Those of you disco lovers will appreciate the original here. It’s a fine example of Euro Electro Disco bordering on Hi-NRG and Italo Disco that would later come into the mainstream. The original, original version of Hills of Katmandu is over 16 minutes long. The version I have here is a mix by legendary San Francisco DJ/musician Patrick Cowley which makes it a little shorter but adding a little more deeper bassline.
You will also appreciate the remake by Tim Taylor VS Thor 54. It’s tribal techno electro house at it’s best. Released back in 2001 almost 10 years now but still sounding fresh, It’s certainly a great update. They have sampled Hills Of Katmandu perfectly. Check them both out below.
