About this item
Neapolitan groove experts Periodica proffer another absolute peach here, this time from the dexterous fingers and electronic arsenal of Whodamanny. Where previous Periodica 7"s have pursued the lethargic and stoned side of the library funk universe, Whodamanny's jam jaunts along with mid tempo energy, snapping snares and plenty of disco sizzle. Obviously the library stylings remain, found here in spaced out synth riffs, electronic approximations of violin and the kind of vibe that would suit a softcore nightclub scene, but the higher tempo offers a nice bit of dance floor thrust. As is often with these discs, the "Dub" steals the show for me, extended groove outs and added tape echo / spring reverb making for a proper hypno jam.
Patrick says: Oof! This month's edition of Periodica provides mid-tempo dance floor thrust and noodley library disco action, with the obligatory and excellent dub mix on the flip.
