Boomkat Product Review:
The don whips his scalpel out for a wicked batch of 'Obscure Cuts II: Italian Arabic Disco'. So you've had Belgalo, Manctalo, and now Arabalo? Maybe not, sounds like italo for farmers. Anyway, this 12" parses a particular strain of early '80s Italian disco besotted with the "exotic" influence of Arabic scales and "vibes". We were aware that this was a thing in New Beat, but not Italian disco, but it makes sense and works a treat for those who like a bit of camp enigma, especially in the febrile vocal tune, 'Mustafa'.
