BORDELLO A PARIGI

Slovenia's Ichisan always comes correct, not least on his 2017 LP "Aperitiv", which was so stupendously good that Bordello A Parigi have opted for a revisit. Four choice cuts have been selected and reworked with a specific instrument focus. The harpsicord version of “Hotel” keeps the intoxicating melody of the original but allows beats to relax as notes shine with an incandescent brilliance. Drums put their feet up for the Rhodes version of “Modri Tunel.” Deep stings and lounging lines mingle in this work of smoke swirling seduction. “Kozmetika (Trumpet Version)” dances to a different tune. Rich bass is again central but this time brash and bold brass intertwine with funk filled bars. The last waltz arrives with the piano version of “Terminal E.” Alluring notes ascend, rising and falling against heartwrenching guitar strings for a finale to end this ballroom inspired beauty. 

Nuovo Italo duo Cristalli Liquidi make their long awaited return to Bordello A Parigi with a four track wax offering which boasts remixes from Black Spuma, Alexander Robotnick and Bottin as well as the sought after 12″ version of the evergreen LCD cover "Volevi Una Hit". Black Spuma start the party with the rampant electro-disco bassline, delayed vocal ping and galloping bell rhythm of "Restare Andare". Tuned to purring perfection, this HiNRG mauler finds that peculiar pocket where the coked up excess of Rimini rolls into the dark room fist of Berlin. Italo hero and acid O.G. Alexander Robotnick rocks the spot next, teaming up with Bottin for the driving 303 funk of "Q.I.L.D.E.", a rampant space disco slammer with just enough keyboard wonk to spring it from the straight and narrow. Flip it to the B1, and Alexander goes solo with his super groovy, bass heavy vocal mix, turning out a future Red Laser classic. Last but not least, Bordello take pity on those who missed their moment in 2012 with a much needed repress of Cristalli Liquidi's, sensual and smooth italo cover of LCD Soundsystem smash "You Wanted A Hit". Top stuff.

For years Nathan Church has been cutting up floors in his native Bilbao. Recently the Basque man’s attention has turned from the Dj booth to the studio. Under his WLDV (We Love Dolce Vita) this Iberian electronic inspiration has cast long shadows and brightened rooms with his blend of horror score intensity and disco exuberance. WLDV arrives at the Bordello with a four tracker of serious intent. Sepulchral and sinister synthlines characterise A Dying Feast, nowhere more than in the haunting samples and clean drums of “A Bucket of Blood”. Cold chords gleam with icy menace while crisp claps punctuate the entrancing funk of “Danza Macabra”. Ecclesia toys with set parameters, exploring what lurks in the twilight between terror and titillation. This flirtation with the divine and the profane is plain to hear in the uneasy elegance and uplifting elation of “Far, Far Away”, a work of steady kicks, unsettling extracts and soaring strings. This “feast” ends on a delectable note. Keys dance and spiral in the intoxicating “Laying Down On Cosmic Dust”, an enthralling end to and enthralling EP.

STAFF COMMENTS

Patrick says: Synth heavy, darker than a goths eye liner and funkier than Barry's stink hat, this four tracker of synth heavy Italo and cosmic house should kill it in the club.

Bordello A Parigi treat us to some hand-stamped limited isht here as G-Machine come through with double disco trouble. Already in the hands of the global Italo elite, this sequinned two piece packs punchy percussion, funked up synthery and the kind of frothy melodies that can have me tops off in a heartbeat. On the A-side the titular "Disco Nightmare" pilots the spaceship through seesawing bass sequences, triumphant melodies and a whole load of laser fire before heading through an Einstein-Rosen bridge for a spot of wormhole funk. Muscular, crepuscular and just a little eerie, this turn of pace should work perfectly on Manctaloween. Over on the flip "Flying Over The Island" offers a little something for the tropical jocks out there, serving smooth synth funk and limber bass over a killer rhythmic lilt. Blessed with the kind of sweltering sound design we loved that Domenique Dumont record for, this is surely top of your tropical pops?
