With some hit singles, such as “In your eyes” launched in the ’80s, REEDS is still an icon of the best italo disco. Today, successful publisher and food expert, he decided to return to the origins with two fresh new songs released on the label MUSIX for his fans in the world.
“I worked with Reeds helping him to realize his single “Marines” in the mid ’80s. Since those times we remained good friends, as we also have the same first name (Maurizio). In 2019 we have been together interviewed by a Mexican TV and we got the chance to get together again. After this encounter I decided to release two of his new songs on my label. A surprise for the fans still enchanted by his refined music style.”
