deep disco warrior the revenge turns in an epic hypnotic mix of slow burning house nailed down by analogue bass and acid. using a filtered vocal it builds slowly as the bottom end is tweeked towards a mesmeric journey through minimal wigged out disco. sleazy mcqueen and romano arcaini turn in a disco inflected house mix with congas, spaces out synths and enough dynamics to keep any dancefloor bubbling. it builds with added percussion and a filtered pad before the lead hits the break and the track comes back in with even more wallop. drug empire is an original off the album and has had support from the likes of rune lindbaek, crazy ps hot toddy and horse meat disco. said to be inspired by theo parrishs productions its a delicious slice of bass driven deep disco with a nod to the looser end of detroit and chicago. its all about the fully locked in three note analogue moog bass which holds down the grooved out drums before breaking to jazzy rhodes at the end. one for the heads.
serious funk going on here! a well balanced mix of new comers and established artists gettin together to throw down some funk blacksoul teams up with newcomer musical globe for a slice of disco heaven that is all about a wicked break. sleazy mcqueen drops a funk bomb on us, chopping up the samples just right and then killin it with that ol school rap. fabio bacchini is channeling chicago via italy and works a classic sample to death on freakin jazz. tom collins is back and with a vengeance with a classic spettro mixed track with a quirky spoken word over the top for good measure
