On this sequel to the label's brilliant Italian house retrospective, Ciao Italia, the team at Rebirth Records has moved on to the early '90s and the next stage in Italy's electronic music evolution. Of course, the piano-laden, loved-up breeziness that marked out the earlier 'dream house' wave is still evident, but this time there's more low-slung basslines, tribal-influenced drums, and heavy late-night grooves. With a deeper and more diverse track listing, it's undoubtedly a brilliant sequel, with our picks of a very strong bunch including Donato Dozzy & Rumi's deep tribal house workout 'Flusso', Flavio Vecchi & House Pillar's bouncy 'Dancing On A Thin Line (Goin' Deep Mix)', T.R.A's thrusting, analogue-rich 'Take My Heart' and the frankly bonkers-but-brilliant 'LaLaLaa' by Cosmos.
