- The Child by Umberto
8/10 Mike Staff review, 17 April 2014
‘80s soundtrack loving dude Umberto is back this week with the full-length 12-minute version of ‘The Child’ which appeared in an edited form on his debut. A right old doozy it is too, a labyrinthine passage of cold disco beats and John Carpenter synths which will delight any fans of Zombi and all the recent horror reissues that have been flooding out over the last two or three years. My favourite part is in the middle when a cheeky little Daft Punk-ish ascending melody kicks in.
Over on the other side Umberto’s cousin Silvio takes on remixing duties, for a harder and more dancefloor ready interpretation, the beats are brash and housey and the synths are watery and woozy, but it reaches quite a crescendo towards the end with pumping electro-house precision and craftily used synth choirs taking that Daft Punky refrain to new levels of cosmic euphoria. Fun times.
