About this item

While Chelsea may have bid farewell to Maurizio Sarri (who I personally think is a genius), the Belpaese crew come the opposite way, crossing the continent to land in store with the fifth edition of their Italian edit odyssey. As ever, the team dig deep into jazz fusion, disco, Mediterranean funk and rare groove to keep us moving and grooving until way after the prosecco's run out. 
"Navigando" opens the set in low slung funk mode, locking in a deep bassline, big hands aloft vocal and stella synth vs guitar solo battle. Undeniably Balearic, and made for hot summer nights, this leads us perfectly to "Peripatetico" a smoothly grooving jazz funker with slick Santana guitar, totally coastal bassline and yacht friendly sophistication. 
Flip it for the dramatic, climactic and probably cinematic "Maledetti", a disco funk workout with rock attitude, AOR energy and soundtrack strings. It's great from the start, but the vocal takes this jam up about 15 notches - very good. 
Finally the pastoral, proggy and organic jazz fusion of "Sa Sa Sa" serves up a scat-led cool down for afternoon DJs and poolside pow wows.
