Hailing from Lyon relative newcomer Markus Gibb returns on Mexican imprint Disque Discos. Its a match made in heaven as the sound of this EP is totally in keeping with the post Italo-disco sounds being pushed by many artists and labels in that city right now. "Lobotomia" is a totally cool heavy breather of a tune (that gets an awesome art-house make over from Aristidez). Think Daniel Maloso being out-sleazed and you get the picture. "B Side" is deep arpeggiated acid turned into irresistible jack-pop by Barusto. A totally essential release.
For the first Magic Feet single of 2015, label boss Craig Bratley has decided to showcase the work of two relatively little-known producers; Correspondant contributor Paresse, and Clouded Vision associate Markus Gibb. The former kicks things off with "Nada", a stylish Italo chugger that makes great use of reverb, delay, foreboding electronics and sparkling synthesizers. The Swedish producer also offers up "Little Wanderer", a surprisingly grandiose chunk of fluttering Balearic disco. Gibb flips the script a little on "Prey", a slightly dark, post-punk influenced chugger blessed with fuzzy, atmospheric guitars, before rounding things off with the moody, mid-tempo rave revivalism-meets-new wave throb of "Whistler" (which, incidentally, does feature whistling).
