We are pleased with the latest addition to our Slow Motion family – Marcello Giordani, Disco overlord, laser cowboy and cosmic heartbreaker.
Chubby Rain takes you on a journey through inner space and outer dimensions where space glows a dark-indigo and thoughts and feeling come and go like waves on a beach. With wandering arpeggios, washed out digital strings and distant vocals, there’s just the right amount of strut in the precision-engineered beats to take propel you through the night. Roma brings us back closer to earth with a smattering of classic disco sounds reinterpreted for a parallel universe. Playful synths make us think of strange animals in distant galaxies, and inter stellar adventuring with a happy ending. Flip the record over and Masimilliano Pagliara breaks Chubby Rain‘s epic journey into smaller, shaper hops that still retain the best parts of the original but adding extra rocket boosters to make for a more exciting ride. Finally Modus, the dirty, sexy robot cousin that people only talk about in hushed digital voices. She slow, sleazy and spilling oil out of every hole. Is that reggae she is listening to? Don’t slip.
