Fireworks - (7:04) 112 BPMBiggest-selling track on this release
   
Sacramento - (6:28) 118 BPM
Review: From the awesome postmodern artwork to the post-punk avant disco rhythms featured on this release, you could easily be forgiven for assuming that Frank Agrario is some long lost kindred spirit to the likes of Talking Heads. But you'd be wrong; Mr Agrario is actually Italian producer Francesco Brini who is Swayzak's former percussionist. A few years ago he got bitten buy the disco bug and hasn't looked back since. Here we get two authentically early 80s cuts - "Fireworks" being a sweaty late night punk funk grind with sultry female vocals and a serious Kid Creole obsession, and "Sacramento", upping the tempo for a piano-led badass bass twister. Hot!

Kalakutta (Leonor remix) - (4:47) 115 BPM
Review: First making his name via production work for Swayzak, more recently Bologna, Italy resident Francecso Brini has stepped out as an artist in his own right under the 'Frank Agrario' moniker. Here, he comes to Tom Tom Disco with a four-track EP that's a melting pot of dancefloor and world music influences. 'Nefro' is a looping, percussive workout with Egyptian/Middle Eastern overtones, 'Kalakutta' is an Afro-style deep houser with jazz tinges, 'Tapwater' is a mellower groove, again with an African feel, and then finally Leonor brings us an epic, remix of 'Kalakutta' complete with broody synths and cinematic spoken vocal.

The Later The Better (Pete Herbert version) - (6:59) 120 BPM
Review: Having previously plied his trade on Internasjonal Spesial, Tom Tom Disco and Spare Change Disco, Frank Agrario pops up on Glasgow's Maxi Discs. As usual, there's a pleasing looseness about the Bologna-based boffin's productions, with both the percussive, Afro-influenced nu-disco chugger "Balfonic", and altogether bolder "The Later The Better" making great use of analogue synths and live-sounding percussion. The latter features some musical elements that really shouldn't work together - most notably some sleazy, rave-era riffs, tasty piano solo and wonky drum hits - but somehow come together to create a really special track. Pete Herbert offers a smoother, cheerier rework to round off another solid EP from the Italian.

Review: It's here! Stockholm's Richard Rossa aka Tom Tom Disco presents eight tracks of deadly, hot, cosmic grooves that are equal parts deep and psychedelic but above all: spiritual! Some of his beloved label's top signings strut their stuff on This Is Tom Tom Disco Vol 05. Some deep and cosmic nu-disco courtesy of Sano on "El Sano", some Middle Eastern exotica on the esoteric "Hazhid Asara" by Acid Hamam and some proper Italo vibes by Tony Disco on "Disco Solar" - one of the compilation's standout moments. Rest assured that label head honcho Richard Rossa represents here too (and is on point as always) with the dusty, boogie down antics of "Discow Ztrummer" which will surely have you gettin' down!
