Capricorn Rising EP

Italians Do It Better
One-time promoter at the legendary Mars club, NYC reveals his "original music" debut for his ever-excellent Italians Do It Better label; and after 20-or-so years, countless edits, mixes and DJ gigs around the world, this debut has arrived long overdue. 'Capricorn Rising' is primed with music for the party, and music for when long after the party is done. Shimmering guitars echo the haunting prog of Amon Düül, whereas Mike's obsession with the electronics of Krautrock manifests as luxurious motorik rhythms, and reflective solo piano and mood pieces add other highlights.
