Review: Florence based label Cosmic Sumo presents another fine release by their big boss Andrea Rucci. This full length entitled Lost & Found is a fine collection of moods and grooves that cover the full spectrum of house music and is definitely worthy of your attention. In fact: it's his first album in 10 years since 2006's Mu-Sick LP. Starting out with the bumping and surefire groove of dynamic opener "Lonely", there are more wicked tracks in the form of the deep and sleazy "Holiday In Paris", his dark and mysterious rendition of Metuo's "Subway" and his collaboration with The Lulabenjim "Too Much Drunk" , a punk-funk jam reminiscent of Ralph Lawson's 20:20 Soundsystem back in the day.

Review: Italian producer Andrea Rucci brings us an EP on his own Cosmic Sumo label that contains three different mixes of the title track. The EP opens with a minute-long ambient Intro mix; then you get the Tech Disco Edit, a deep, dark techy affair that'll nonetheless slot neatly into more experimental/cosmic-leaning contemporary disco sets, and that sports a familar "in my life" sample by way of a (sparingly used) vocal. Completing the EP is the Dub Disco Edit, which is one for later in the night when things are starting to get a bit twisted...

Review: We don't know much about the identity of G I V D A, but the smart money is on it being a side project of Cosmic Sumo boss Andrea Rucci. Certainly, fans of the Italian producer's curious analogue mix of psychedelic synths and sparse electronic rhythms will enjoy "Cosmic Circle". From the audible hiss and vintage drum machine beats, to the proto-acid electronics and fuzzy, alien chords, it's every bit an old fashioned cosmic disco weird-out. Rucci's own edit turns it into an intergalactic, robo-disco stomper, while Loudtone channels the spirit of Codek on his wide-eyed rework.

Review: Despite the Japanese theme, Sumo Records actually hail from sunny Italy, a country with its own unique relationship with disco. Here Montefroid have their "Sister" track presented in a variety of mixes from the nu-disco spectrum. Highlights include the hazy and bassy Afro mix, the deep fried funk of Smell Seventy's taut grinder and Andrea Rucci's warm and snazzy disco-house rework.

Logical Groove - (9:59) 120 BPM
Review: On the imprint's first release of 2019, Andrea Rucci's Cosmic Sumo label welcomes a storied veteran of the Italian house scene: former Flying Records and Mantra Vibes regular Roberto Masi. Shockingly, "About a DJ" appears to be the Palermo-based producer's first release for 15 years. He hits the ground with the title track, a fine fusion of chunky deep house tropes, jammed-out Fender Rhodes motifs, rubbery disco bass and vintage hip-house vocal samples. "Logical Groove", meanwhile, fixes nu-disco style synths and electronics to another fine deep house groove, with Masi emphasizing bold riffs, atmospheric drops and deep space electronics.

Review: Spanish producer James Rod has already scored some choice outings on Good Stuff, Disco Volante and Hit Digits over the past year, while Italian man Tulioxi has been found moonlighting on Quantistic Division, Hot Elephant and more in his own disco-fuelled operations. On this release for Cosmic Sumo, both producers have a chance to each serve up an original and remix each other, and the results are a consistent blend of warm synth basslines, crisp drum rhythms and heaps of sensuality that should easily rub their way into any discerning disco lovers set. If you like your disco robotic and romantic then look no further.

Played by: Andrea Rucci
Review: Often in dance music it can take real guts to slow things down. However can really be worth the risk if done right, and that's just what Rucci & Fedeli have done. "Get Up" is nearly five minutes of deep, slow-building cosmic grooves that is to take its time to work a dancefloor. The "Happy Edit" is trippy too but added vocals chants and vibes for extra measure.

Review: Florence-based synth fetishist Mattia Tuliozi is an old hand at nu-Italo, having made his debut on Andrea Rucci's Cosmic Sumo label back in 2011. Here he delivers his second album for the imprint, effortlessly joining the dots between modular synthesizer disco, deep house, Italo and techno. For the most part, While The City Sleeps focuses on chugging grooves, bubbling electronics and spiralling melodies, with the Italian producer keeping both eyes focused on the dancefloor throughout. For all the retro-futurist fusion on show, some of the most enjoyable moments - in particular, the cheerful and intoxicating, acid-flecked "Where They Came From?" - are those where Tuliozi simply indulges his love of classic Italo-disco.

Mr Tarabond - (4:39) 118 BPM
Review: Ah yes, a good hit of Tulioxi material never did anyone any harm, and certainly not our house/disco charts! The prolific producer returns to Cosmic Sumo Recordings with a deep, eerie house warmer in the form of "Etnixangi", boasting dry and intricate percussion loops over a retro-facing, soundtrack-leaning John Carpenter sort of synth vibe. "Mr Tarabond" is a similar affair, except the melodies have dug deeper now, they've entered a new dimension, and it's one we absolutely adore; these are shady disco-house bombs for lovers of the raw and the mystical.

Review: After nearly a decade in the game, Andrea Rucci's Cosmic Sumo release their first-ever 'best of' compilation. Unsurprisingly, cosmic and Italo-disco vibes predominate: you won't find many cowbells, handclaps or female multi-part vocal harmonies here (though there are some). But if it's Carpenter-esque synths, druggy Afro-inspired beats, bleepy electro flourishes and a distinct whiff of mid-80s Europe you're after then you're in the right place, because here all of the above are provided in spades by the big-hitting likes of James Rod, Tulioxi and, perhaps most signficantly, Italian founding father Alexander Robotnick himself.
