Another alltimer, a strong one.

I had this track on a tape released in Czech republic, but it can't be found on discogs or anywhere on the net, so I wonder if it was a official release.

This track has everything what I love on club music, its raw, melancholic, spacy.

In 2020 Supernova Records re-released the track with a new video:

Full track:

'Mandrake' by Borgia was originally released on HOS Records in 1994, now defunct. The DAT was missing. Therefore no digital copies were available for a long time. This file is a newly found edited version of part one and two; part three was not included. Although not part of Supernova Records catalogue, the sound is not too dissimilar. So we created a black edition to differentiate it from Phase 1 releases (1994-1998) and Phase 2 - (2019 - Present). Alfredo Violante wrote 'Mandrake' under the alias Borgia. The B side, Belladonna was written by Alfredo Violante, Guido Gaule and Johnny Morris. INTERESTING FACTS: Although the track is known as 'Mandrake', its original title was 'Belladonna' and vice versa. The press implant inverted the labels.

the 10mins version is amazing, why did they had to snip it in half, kinda reminds me of mea culpa butchering its tracks to fit todays length
