ABOUT THIS ITEM
That Neil Diablo from Manchester's El Diablo's Social Club shows his edit chops again, joining the Kat label roster for this new four tracker. Kicking things off is 'Cannae Believe', an Italo / New York dubbed out-disco slo-mo electro-disco cut with synth stabs and 'Love Is The Message'-esque pads floating over moody proto-house beats with sassy vocals to boot. Hit! Next up is 'Disco Special', a 'walking' mid-tempo melter which drops guitar-led Balearia, funky bass, arpeggiated synths, syncopated hand claps and space toms a-plenty before lifting off into string-filled ecstacy. Big!
On the flip we have 'For Your Love' is a slinky 2-step soul gem originally released in 1982 by the Fats Gaines Band and featuring sublime vox by Zorina. Stretched, diced and strung beautifully back together, this has summer anthem written all over it. Finishing things off is 'Christina Debs, Behind Bars''. Presumably by Christina Originally out on Ze Records and produced in Detroit by Don Was in 1984, this low-slung nu-wave disco chugger adds another dimension to proceedings and this EP feels all the mightier for it.
