The latest volume in Running Back's "Super Sound Singles" series of reissues is something of an eccentric treat. It comes from mystery Euro-disco eccentric Udytu Utzelturk (and "his male harem"), who released one two-track 12" way back in 1984. Both of those sought-after cuts are included on this EP. There's the exotic, tongue-in-cheek chunk of Italo-disco/synth-pop fusion that is "Kairo" - all jaunty synthesizer melodies, digital telephone dial noises, sleazy arpeggio style bass and impassioned Egyptian vocals - and the more laidback but no less zany synth-funk insanity that is "Kozak2000". There's also a neat dancefloor bonus in the shape of Boris Dlugosch's fresh edit of "Kairo", which concentrates on the sleazier, more club-ready elements and dispels with some of the more bonkers bits of the mystery man's '84 original version.
