Boomkat Product Review:
The Southern Italian duo come good with a debut album spanning all shades of house and techno for JD Twitch’s ever-subversive Optimo Trax label.
First introduced by JD Twitch at the turn of the year, Underspreche’s Optimo Trax debut was possibly overlooked as it sat facedown to some incendiary proto-breakbeat hardcore from Muslimgauze dating back to the mid ‘80s. Twitch is clearly taken with the Southern Italian pairing however, with a subsequent full 12” for Optimo Trax now complemented by Underspreche’s debut album, Invito Allo Danza, which apparently takes its name from a classical composition by Carl Maria von Weber.
Across the eight tracks, Underspreche neatly sum up the musical diversity we’ve come to expect from Optimo Trax since it launched a few years ago. Techy swerves like Enchanting Lure and the operatic acid of Vincino A Te nestle alongside leftfield deviations on In Turbine, the skippy house hypnosis of the title track and some unfettered belters like Sequins Sequence and star-gazing closer Mi Luz Es Dintina.
