Boomkat Product Review:
First ever reissue of Marcello Giombini’s sought-after Computer Disco session, re-entering orbit 35 years since original release to the relief of Italo and cosmic fiends everywhere.
Before turning his hand to these simmering, perky beauties, Marcello Giombini was behind a long string of recordings since the ‘60s, mainly in the area of religious and folk music and spaghetti western soundtracks. However his interests in electronic music inevitably led to this deadly cute - some may say cheesy - batch of disco and synth-pop bubblers.
There’s eight tracks on offer, each as charming as the next, from melancholy to popcorn Italo melodies and some of the most exquisite electronic hooks this side of Kraftwerk, all scaled between buoyant chuggers to wiggly waltzers and strutting peacock themes.
