Italian producer Franz Scala has a knack for 80´s fueled releases awash with modern sensibilities, his Italian- centric but Berlin based label Slow Motion weaving proto-house, italo and new wave together for Italian-born producers wile Wrong Era go as international syster output. Slow Motion and Bordello A Parigi with the support of Sameheads are join forces for Scala euphoric debut LP Mondo Della Note, which translates to ‘World Of The Night’.
Gorgeous synth leads and psychedelic-disco dips are brought forward with infectious enthusiasm on the 8-track album, each track sitting around the 7-minute mark so as to make room for all of Scala’s retro nods. The title track is a bountiful disco wave marathon; blending heavenly vocal snippets and infectious synth lines in a bold Euro-romance dream. ‘Gladio’ is a hypnotizing affair with a firm nod to Detriot, weaving between the hard-hitting free style cut ‘Gladio’ and the jam-packed Chicago-house of ‘Dreamline’. Scala rework of ‘One Way Love’, infusing trippy new beat vocals with a steady proto-house step, whereas ‘Stelle’ is strictly Paradise Garage with ethereal sound design and catchy synth links. Built like an encapsulating treasure trove of Scala’s Italo influences, the record is flawless for the dance floor.
