For their latest trick, Italo-disco magicians Bordello A Parigi have conjured up a debut release from Milan's Younger Than Me, a "rising DJ and producer duo" comprised of Marcello Carozzi and John Ming. Interestingly "Honey" - featuring the breathy, seductive vocals of Lara Caprotti - joins the dots between the restless synthesizer throb of classic Italo, the sweaty pump of rave-era Italian house, and the dark pulse of Twilo-era Danny Tenaglia productions. The duo's own Dub version heads further towards Italo-disco territory, while fellow Italian Uabos goes all deep, dreamy and Morenas-esque on his superb, '89 style remix. Two cheery, analogue-rich Italo-disco interpretations from Massimiliano Pagliara complete a fine package.
Following their debut last year on Bordello A Parigi, Younger Than Me aka Francesco Mingrino and Marcello Carozzi now set their sights on Relish. Unlike their first EP, "Warning Code" is more focused on drawing on wave, industrial and Chicago house influences. The title track centres on a throbbing groove, supported by kettle drums and rolling snares, while an indistinct vocal natters away in the background. As its title suggests, "Disco Rootz" is more groovy and sees the Italian pair drop a pulsing electronic disco workout led by a powerful bass and some clipped guitar riffs. Rounding off the release is a fine, acid-heavy version of "Code" by Fabrizio Mammarella.
