Alien Alien are Rodion and Hugo Sanchez and are two highly regarded producers out of Rome who push some noirish electro crossover here. "Secret Sabbah" is the kind of brooding electro dance that Moscoman and Bourisiade are pushing of late, filled with buzzy vintage arpeggios, po-faced vocals and rusty rhythms. "Versailles" is more deep and stripped back: perfect for the late night with its tunnelling arpeggiatos and dark hypnotic pads It gets some great remixes a great bunch but it's all about Optimo main man JD Twitch who takes the title track into epic acid territory.
As their name suggests, Italian duo Alien Alien make music that isn't of this world. On the title track, the bass is loose and lumbering as it moves up and down a few notes, the hissing percussive layers cloaking the arrangement in mist and all the while an indistinct vocal mutters "Myoosic". The Mekanikos remix is also unusual; the beats are slower and almost at a hip-hop pace - for a split second, they sound like Vanilla Ice's "Ice Ice Baby" on downers - and the arrangement is submerged in an acid-fried dub cloud. Idoit's remix picks up the pace and transports Alien Alien's original track into a skeletal rhythmic framework, a place where it sounds like the robots have taken over from the little green men.
