RELEASE DATE 2010
MEDIA FORMAT 12", EP
– Try begins as a sleazy electro disco cut, that’s swaggers along until breaking out with melodic strings that lighten the mood, before things drop back down to a perfect 4am groove that John Carpenter would have been proud to call his own.
– Easy on Yourself uses a very familiar sample to begin what is a playful and deceptively complicated track – equally at home on the stereo as it is on a Funktion One system – clever percussive sections, a melodic refrain that brings to mind The Cure and a whole lot of smiles from the dance-floor. The Heels of Love turn in a tougher remix version that slips in an acidic bass line and works the groove just that bit harder.
– Finally Fabrizio Mammarella encourages us to Don’t Lose The Juice, which only appears here in remix form – and what a remix it is. With a nod to the modulated sonic devilry of the Emperor Machine, but with a style that is all his own, Mammarella turn in a tough and funky ‘Slow Motion’ groove, cut up vocal snippets, squeaks bleeps and cowbells for easily the most ‘out there’ track on this release.
