Release Date:08/26/2016;Notes:JAGO was the studio project of MICHELE VIOLANTE created in Milan, Italy in 1983. The line-up also included LUCIANA CIRRILLO (aka KYNSHA), who wrote lyrics and sang back up vocals. The name Jago comes from Iago, the main antagonist in Shakespeare's Othello. In those years, Michele produced a lot of songs and published material for Full Time Records. "I'm Going To Go" was recorded at Forum Studio in Rome in 1983 and released on Full Time the same year. He made an electro-funk demo with a Gibson Les Paul, but during practice the song became soulful funk but arranged with new wave electronics. The song revolves around a slick atmospheric bassline, driving electronic percussion, and tight rhythm guitar and synths. The setup for the recording was a Casiotone MT-40 keyboard, Boss DR-55 and Sequential Circuits Drumtraks drum machines, an Akai cassette recorder, and a Revox A77 for multi-tracking. Lead vocals were done by session musician BRUNO KASSAR, delivering Kynsha's playful lyrics along to the lead melody. Also on the A-side is the Instrumental Version which became a hit in New York after Larry Levan played it repeatedly at the Paradise Garage. Full Time asked Levan's long time friend Frankie Knuckles to make a remix. It was released in 1985 as the "Plant Mix," and is included here on the B-side. This was Frankie's first released remix, although the record label misspelled his name as 'Frankye'. The remix clocks in at over 8 minutes, and is a dub edit made using the stereo master of the instrumental track. All songs have been remastered for vinyl by George Horn at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley. The record comes housed in a newly designed die-cut jacket by Eloise Leigh, updating the purple and blue color scheme of the original Full Time label. Each copy includes a double-sided postcard insert with lyrics, notes, and a never seen before photo of Kynsha from 1982.
