Italy's Francesca Lombardo saw her debut on Crosstown Rebels back a few years ago, and the artiste returns to the mighty imprint with a fresh four-tracker for the body and soul. "Perseidi" is a hypnotic shot of house psychedelia that flutters away amid fuzzy low frequencies and rattling percussion twists, a tune that's backed by a remix from Transmat's Aril Brikha who jacks it up and adds in a fine layer of sci-fi Detroit vibes. "Uttermost" is a little funkier and bouncier thanks to its wavy chords, while "Tulips On Mars" goes deeper into cyber space with its cinematic bassline and spacey pads. Hot stuff, this!
The irritatingly on-point Crosstown Rebels are back with yet another instant hit from Italian wonder girl, Francesca Lombardo. "What To Do" is an infectious, late night, lo-fi house tune with Lombardo's evocative vocals running all over it; topping it off are a fine selection of remixes from Infinity Ink, Matrixxman and Luca Cazal, the latter churning out a fine dub re-work of the original. Big!
