Boomkat Product Review:
Shades-on, nose-rubbing ‘80s italo disco from Toronto’s Jex Opolis, chasing up his Dekmnantel 12” with a full album of proper peacockery.
‘Net Worth’ is the sort of sleaze you’d hear in Miami mansions and Frankfurt penthouses during the late ‘80s to our imaginations. It’s all super clean cut and shimmeringly spa fresh with plush FM synth programming and precise machine drums steered into an opulent soundtrack for your own (mis)adventures.
One might imagine Patrick Bateman busting a shuffle to ‘What Am I Gonna Do?’, and ‘Listen to the Band’ just oozes Wang Chung, while ‘The Love Photography’ is like Prefab Sprout meets Alan Wilder, and ‘Dark Power’ gives it some Carlos Peron-style Euro disco buff, with ‘Doing Nothing’ adding a tip of the visor to Cybotron in a finely tailored album primed for cruising the strip.
