MAGIC MIX

Electro . Synthwave . Electro-pop

WEEK STARTING 21 Apr

Genre pick of the week Cover of The Child by Umberto.
A hugely popular cut in it’s edited form on Matt Hill’s 1st LP “From The Grave…” in 2009, the full length version (clocking in just short of 12 minutes) appears here for the first time. As does the flip, a remix by ‘Silvio’ which is far more beat driven and aimed at the dance floor; imagine some hybrid Daft Punk / Kraftwerk collision and you get kinda close…

The original in it’s unedited form is a classic. Heavy on that uniquely chilling atmosphere present over Umberto’s back catalogue, and drawing on a more percussive take to the fright night / Carpenter / Giallo / Goblin sounds commonly associated with Matt’s previous output.

A beautiful record on the eye and ear. Killer Tim Goodwillie sleeve art and a pressing of 500 on white vinyl ready for the latter stages of the current Umberto European tour (Including UK legs in the last week of April, first 2 days of May). Be quick…
