7/10 Clinton Staff review, 21 November 2014

Left in the pile like a sad and lonely thing is this rather great 12” on the Dark Entries label. If you know anything about Dark Entries it will be that they enjoy re-issuing 80’s Italo house/disco records and what we have here is a prime example of the kind of sought-after thing they are bringing back to life.

Its typical of the era in that it’s full of Moroder-influenced pulsating synths and rudimentary drum machines all topped off by robotic sounding female vocal. I can imagine New Order listening to and absorbing this. The chorus is particularly affecting, sung from the perspective of a lady from space. Overleaf is the instrumental version which is basically the same but with the lady’s voice replaced by a synth which pretty much does the same job (without actually enunciating words you understand  - they weren’t that advanced). Will appeal to fans of early 80’s futuristic discotheque.


9/10 Brian Staff review, 21 November 2014

This is more my sort of thing than Clint's yet he nevertheless succinctly gets across what I find irresistible about the track. I've heard this played by Optimo and I-F in the past I think (or at least on one of their mixes) and its cosmic wonder and brilliant Moroder-esque electro strut is indeed propelled by the yearning trapped-in-a-digital-conduit female vocal. Something pure, timeless and celebratory about this track, a joyous ice cool disco stormer with a sensual tribalistic breakdown that I will surely be DJing with next week.

Yet another treasure of a re-issue, this label is just too damn on the ball for its own good #darkentries. Much respect.
