The Italojohnson project remains an anonymous operation despite recently being unveiled online as the work of three individuals - which only adds an element of subterfuge to their chosen collective name. A sixth transmission arrives sporting three more untitled and diverse appropriations of the classic house template with the A Side a humongous slice of main room functionalism that shamelessly flaunts its hands in the air capabilities towards the end. The flips brings some surprises to the table with a Window Licker-esque Miami Bass workout complemented by rasping update on Dance Mania sweat-outs. Regardless of whether you agree with their militant format views or approach to anonymity, Italojohnson are undeniably masters of their craft.
