About this item

After at least one week away from the release sheets, Australia's prolific king of Italo foth makes a welcome return to Violette Szabo with four more sensual DJ cuts! If you like your synth-pop and Italo sweet, sleazy and appropriately cheesy, this is the deep digger you turn to - and once again Hysteric comes through with the goods. "Moonlight" opens the set in dramatic fashion, merging swooning sequences, hypnotic percussion and distorted guitar into the kind of thing you'd expect to hear in straight to TV teen drama from 1986. Throw in some totally ridiculous vocals (sample lyric..."What's the worth of my bohemian charm, when all the girls lay in someone else's arms") and you're away, mopping your brow with a sweatband and dancing into the distance. The cinematic feel continues with "Voix", a emotional pop peach with precise woodblocks, bubbling synth bass and slick guitar licks. After a slow and steady build, the tension breaks and the track segues into some spoken French vocals dripping with Gallic charm. Skip to the flip and "F.F." brings the drama for the Bboys out there, delivering heavy bass sounds, metallic synth percussion and Miami Vice style guitar. If you've planning on taking your sports car for a sunset spin anytime soon, I'd suggest this as the soundtrack. Last but not least, "Vocoder Lady" is a dreamy, nearly Balearic disco cut, complete with snapping snare, bouncy bass and you guessed it, vocoder. Here for a good time, not a long time, so snap a copy up sharpish.
