Astronauts please assemble. Rising Sicilian star-gazers Phunkadelica make their Correspondant debut with this beguiling trip to the stars. Three original cosmic crusades and two full-thrust remixes from Machinegewehr and Marcus Worgull, you best buckle up tight for this one.
Score-like in its orchestration, Italo right down to its deepest DNA; ‘Amore Automatico’ is the countdown, take-off and break away from the earth’s gravitational pull all in one. ‘L’Aria’ follows, settling us into the freefall of the universe by way of a contemplative electro strut and ‘O Superman’ style mournful vocoders. ’80 Voglia’ then proceeds to deftly navigate a torrential asteroid storm, moving between the space debris so lithely it seems like slow motion… Eight minutes later you’re on the other side of the galaxy with just two rocket-fuel remixes to get you back home.
Rotterdam rifleman Machinegewehr fires shots through the solar system, adding a sense of pace and synth-tom tension to ‘Amore Automatico’ while Marcus Worgull brings us back softly to terra firma with a church-like flip on ‘L’Aria’ loaded with cascading arpeggios that are tailored made for this time of year. Happy astral travels.
