Seeing the word disco in a techno title for some reason means good things. It of course doesn't mean rhythm guitars and strings, but it does show a cheeky side of techno otherwise unseen. Few people do disco sounding techno better than the Italian Marcello Napoletano who adopts the rarely seen Michael Ferragosto alias for this Synthdrome At The Disco EP. "Amore Jackin Per 77" flares with rolling snares that sounds like crunched up aluminium foil, while single bar loops of bass repeat on itself to jacking percussion, snappy claps and jaq-jaq vocals. "Risque Intentions" brims with bubbling acid, flat tyre kicks and grouchy explanations of real house music, while "V2021" squeals with flanging and phased synths. Naturally the title track is the closest the EP gets to disco with a skippy backbeat, bedroom recorded vocals with feedback horror delays for that techno touch.
