COCKTAIL D'AMORE

Pushing Movies is the collaborative project of Jeffrey Sfire and Dimitri SoEmotional.
Half of Studio Luce, Dimitri gave light to Defender X along with Franz Scala from Slow Motion. You might remember of Jeffrey Sfire, the man behind the homonymous legendary hit from 2014.

Thinking About You is a nostalgic piece of Italo-inspired synth-pop music. A driving groove, involving guitar bass chords, tingled with reverse effects, supports the bright and sexy synth lines. You are suddenly projected to the Italian Riviera sometime in 1980s; pulsating colorful disco lights are cheering up the dance floor on fire, Sabrina Salerno's drinking champagne by the pool while Toni Esposito's staring at the full moon wearing a flowered linen shirt.

Lauer and Fort Romeau are on remix duty for the B-side of this 12". If Fort Romeau's interpretation will take you to ultra-space realms, Lauer seems to soundtrack a flashy bumper cars drive. 

After his appearance on Born Free Records, Rollerboys Recordings, and Rett I Fletta, Johannes Wilkstrom aka Yourhighness contributes to the lavish Cocktail d'Amore with "Stratofortress". The Berlin based imprint gathers techno guru Rrose, Born Free Records owner Samo DJ and international Jap-wave rep Gonno in on remix duties, for four very different interpretations on one theme. Yourhighness' original mix is an acid based, jugular hitting technoid romp. It's dark sinister quirkiness reminiscent of tops off moments at all the best sweat boxes from Bugged Out to Subclub. On the same side Samo DJ transforms the techno blaster into a slower, new beat flavoured chugger; strung out AF and riding a slack breakbeat groove. Rrose's remix on side B is a different kettle of fish. "Stratofortress" suddenly turns into a dubby, everlasting build up, that eventually implodes into the depth of a black hole. Dramatic techno for encapsulated audiences. Closing the EP Gonno offers a slow-mo rework. Deep and very cinematic, this remix will please every wormhole navigator. Really strong stuff as ever from Samo DJ's team. Highly recommended.

STAFF COMMENTS

Matt says: Totally wigged-out; everyone involved here contributing something unique and arresting. Rrose and Samo DJ's take do it for me, but there's two more just as biting cuts for freaks of an alternative disposition.

Currently starting basement fires in his new home of Berlin, Melbourne's master of all things Industrial/EBM, Kris Baha, takes a break from his Power Station/Power Cuts duties to drop a snorter for his now local Cocktail D'Amour. Intensely disturbed, sleazy and dirtier than Martin's brew mug, title track "Autora" begins life as a classic EBM cut, rattling our ribs with tough machine beats and a throbbing bassline. Getting weirder as it romps on, "Autora" barks with distorted fx oddities perfectly mashed to an involving balance. "Brink Reality" drops the tempo but up the creep factor, lacing the groove with all manner of mechanical critters. Disembodied vocals whisper and snarl adding a touch of menace, while the occasional break into swooning, synth flute sees us soar into the stars for a brief moment of respite. The beatless "Happiness Disaster" is at once space-aged, scary and cinematic, while B-side opener "10Ways" is a thunder bolt of crushing steel, bouncing percussion and a vocal worthy of Front 242 or Cabaret Voltaire. Closing the EP on a romantic and sweet note, "Start Over" is an italo/wave hybrid ballad tinged with hope and brightness, certain to get some love from the Red Laser massive.
