Sometime Sound Exhibitions sort Noil Rago has a solid track record when it comes to serving up off-kilter nu-disco, celebratory house and beefed-up re-edits. This EP - a collection of "Unusual Disco" - is his first for Hot Digits and, unsurprisingly, there's much to enjoy throughout. Perhaps the most alluring track of the lot is "Sambao", a 102 BPM trip into organ-rich revivalist Afro-Cosmic territory full of funk-fuelled guitar riffs, rolling percussion and bubbly electronics. Later in the EP it's given the remix treatment by Fingerman and Bellabouche, who smother it in dub disco delay and add a hypnotic, beatdown style groove. Elsewhere, "Not By Change" sees the Naples-based producer brilliantly fuse nu-disco, Afro-Cosmic and dub disco, while "Stop" is a robotic trip into nu-disco/NYC electrofunk fusion.
