Review: A soundtrack for the contemporary 'Vinti' (defeated) with its dark and at the same time sparkling flavour of the '80s sounds. Between cold wave, synth pop and imaginary electronic atmospheres. This record with its horror-framed and dystopian scenario ("Slot Machine") reveals a content of social criticism healed through the warm and evocative indulgence of "Che Male C'e'.

Review: Two top names from the contemporary Italian scene go head-to-head here, as nu-disco don (and sometime Dimitri From Paris collaborator) DJ Rocca shares a studio with one half of Claremont 56-signed cosmic disco duo Almunia, Leo Cecanti. It seems to be a match made in heaven. Certainly, it's hard to dislike the breezy and sun-kissed A-side "Every Changing Bubbles" [sic], where rolling acoustic guitars and fluttering flute solos seemingly dance atop a rolling cosmic disco groove. Over on side B, the experienced duo adds some epic jazz guitar solos to a blazed jazz-funk/jazz-rock groove on the rather fine "Estate", before reaching for their Clavinet on the dancefloor-ready, Baldelli style, rock-influenced cosmic strut of "Mbira Funk".
