On this superb two-disc compilation, Opilec Records boss I-Robots shines a light on the Piedmomt area music scene in the 1970s and early '80s, showing how Italy's own Motor City, Turin, helped give birth to the Italo-disco scene. It's a killer collection, showcasing a range of obscure, little-known records that joined the dots between U.S funk, soul and disco, German krautrock, the proto-techno of Kraftwerk, and the synthesizer sounds coming out of the U.K. Remarkably, the 38-track collection contains numerous demos and unreleased alternate versions, drawn form the archives of the original producers and labels involved. If you're at all interested in the Italo-disco sound, Turin Dancefloor Express is an essential purchase.
