Diamonds In The Night

Bordello A Parigi
Outrageously good Italo disco tribute via one of those buy-on-sight labels, Bordello A Parigi. Four tunes, starting with a contribution from The Hacker, who roughs up the Italo blueprint with woozy synths, but keeps the heartbreaking mood intact. Discobeton offers up a mid-period (‘85) style homage with bouncy keys, keeping a standard of authenticity with accurate old school drum sounds; as does a particularly traditional-sounding contribution from Parisian, Voiron. The highlight, however, is Armonics’ soaring cut ‘Universal Oneness’, with some brilliantly detailed, classic era Italo disco appreciation.
