Ever wondered what you would get if you order one Italo-Space-Disco-Pizza with extra bass and arpeggios? I guess you get a box with Phreek Plus One’s new Black Label EP in it…
The three Italian stallions Ivan Savoldi, Allesandro Cattenati and Giovanni Guerretti are deeply influenced by the Cosmic Sound of the late 70s and early 80s. But they manage to apply those old vibes to a modern deep-house template in a virtuoso way, making their sound equally comfortable with the past and the present.
On their first two 12inches they opened up “New Disco Dimensions” and then got caught in the “Cosmic Slope”. Both releases got strong support by peeps like Prins Thomas, DJ Language, Lopazz and Kaos. This time around they squeeze out more smooth, slow grooving tracks like “Bikini” and “Astro Boogie” while on the final track “New York Dolls” they even reveal a slight fondness for a glam rock attitude.
