Earlier in the decade, Berlin-based Brazilian Daniela Caldellas made her mark via a trio of tasty 12" singles on Hotflush. Here she deviates from her left-of-centre techno path to successfully turn her hand to sleazy disco. In its original form, "Tale of Devotion" is breathy and breathless, with Caldellas adding impactful, headline-grabbing vocals to a throbbing, spacey backing track that wraps razor-sharp disco strings to a thrusting, Patrick Cowley-esque groove. Caldellas' accompanying "Dub" wisely concentrates on the killer groove and intergalactic electronic effects, while Norwegian legend Prins Thomas offers up typically epic vocal and instrumental takes in his usual "Discomiks" style. In practice, that means heavy post-punk bass guitar, krautrock-goes-disco drums and an even more prominent role for Caldellas' strings.
