High Quality LPs, CDs, tapes and merchandise from the leading reissue label
All has begun during a long drive to Italy. Norbert Reichart, producer and mastermind of Imperio, has always been a great fan of old roman movies, such as "Ben Hur", and he has always loved their monumental sound. He was always fascinated by the aura, the outfit and the way of living, which prevailed in ancient Rome.
While Norbert was driving on the highway to the south, he grasped for his cigarettes. Suddenly the print "Veni Vidi Vici" on the packet caught his eye. The idea to make a dancefloor song with these three words was born!
After having arrived at home, he immediately started working. The instrumental version was finished soon, but the vocals were still missing. This problem was solved by change. Some days later Norbert met Manuela Ray in the disco "Dorian Gray" in Frankfurt. Manuela, a girl from Vienna who was visiting a friend in Frankfurt, was dancing happy and lively to her favourite rhythm, and Norbert thought: "SHE is the right one!!!".
Then Norbert asked Manuela if she was also able to sing and instead of giving him an answer she turned round and went away; she thought he had wanted to give the come-on to her in quite a stupid manner! A lot of persuasiveness was necessary to convince her that Norbert was not joking. Then Manuela got interested in the whole story and two days later she was already in Norbert` s studio: she listened to the instrumental version, read her text, started to sing and - wow!- her voice was perfect!
After that Norbert begun the search for a suitable rapper, what turned to be a quite difficult thing.
