Release The Beast

Optimo
Most new school Italo producers are content to trot out lazily constructed pastiches of past glories, but not Glasgow duo Den Haan. While the spaced-out groove of 'Metamorphosis' bears more than a passing resemblance to Patrick Cowley, the title track sees a decidedly butch vocalist hitching a ride on a classic melody sequence to provide a gravely (but deadpan) narrative about "releasing the beast." Forget Italo, this is macho disco.
