ARP-obsessed disco/house/techno fusionist Mario Pierro returns with an EP of intergalactic grooves and menacing sci-fi disco. Lead cut "Night Theme" is unashamedly dark and menacing - vintage synth-wave disco bristling with cosmic intent, acid squiggles and stargazing swagger. "Lunar Lander" is a touch jollier but still curiously spooky, all drifting female vocal samples, wobbly bottom end and glassy-eyed Lost in Space electronics. Both tracks are good, but for real thrills check out the included Rude 66 remixes. These slow the pace to little more than a brain-melting pulse. As a result, both mixes sound creepily threatening and eerily grandiose.
