"Never Half Step" has a a killer fuzz bass topped by dirty yet subtle synth nuances. It's constructed almost like a old school techno track, but with 100% warm analog disco sounds and snappy beats. Surely the deepest and perhaps the best track in the bunch. "Braxx" is a more throbbing disco number, with all the appealing features: squeaky vocoder hooks, live bass work and resonating filter work. "Old Sequencer" starts as one of those walking bass nu-disco tracks a-la Emperor Machine, except that it suddenly goes wrong but in a lovely way: 8-bit downsampling distortions, overdriven guitar licks, self-oscillating filter hisses, finally the original bass line is replaced by an almost German-sounding saturated synth ostinato. Overall a great record, dirty yet refined, the lack of defining melodic elements, typical of most neo-disco productions, is entirely compensated by the ever-changing synth intricacies and by the effective yet unpredictable structure of each and every track. A personal favorite and surely of the best disco-inspired records coming out from Italy (my own country by the way) since the last decade or two.
