As resident at hot Milan club Le Cannibale, Uabos has made some friends in high places. When the time came for a new release he called up his buddy Munk and wrangled a single on Gomma offshoot, Toy Tronics. Not bad going and the music's pretty good too. There are three originals here, the percolating analogue jack-jam "Hard T", the warped and loopy house of "A Spirtual Thing" and the long, cosmically pulsating title track. The latter also gets a remix by Danny 'Legowelt' Wolfer, who delivers a trippier, linear excursion into electro and disco-fied waters.
After a series of successful grooves on Bitter Moon, Matteo Pepe's Uabos makes himself known on the perennial Bordello A Parigi. It's the perfect fit: Pepe's uplifting analogue soul thrusts with a sense of positivity and musicality that tips a respectful hat to the legacy of Italo. The ageless consistency runs throughout smoothly as we're flung from the barbed flickers of acid on "Mystic Force" to the sci-fi imagery and emotion of "City Woods". Elsewhere "Karmic Souls" flexes back to 1990 with its rolling broken drums while "Copacabana" will have everyone reliving the 80s - even if they weren't even born that decade.
