This could be a match made in heaven. On one side, rising star Daniel Avery (aka Stopmakingme), on the other, veteran producer, DJ and all round legend Justin Robertson (here appearing under recently-adopted Deadstock 33s pseudonym). Musically, "Nylon Icon" and "New Moon" are typical of Robertson's recent work, offering a dark but addictive fusion of bubbling electronic disco, vintage dark wave synth-pop and analogue house. "Eric Zann Revisited" flips the script slightly, touching on Italo whilst retaining a bouncy electronic groove. Remix wise, there's an acid-flecked tweak of the latter track by Filthy Dukes, whilst People Get Real deliver an off-kilter, cowbell-heavy version of "New Moon".
Ever a reliable outlet for the newest of nu-disco, Gomma once again come up trumps with this record from Justin Robertson's more synth-wave influenced project. The original is a dynamic and immaculately realised pop jaunt fit for early Depeche Mode, not least in the stoutly English vocals. Ewan Pearson gets a snappy house framework around the key elements of the track, never so in his element as reworking a bombastic vocal tune. The "Club" mix focuses on a serious dose of acid intent with a hint of electro house a la Tiefschwarz, and Disco Bloodbath turn out an unbeatable slice of Chicago precision.
