Planet Paolo studio session part 1
Continuing a long-held disco tradition Paolo Guglielmino (aka half of the successful Tutto Matto production team) contributed a brand new album entitled ‘Planet Paolo’. This is a bona fide dancefloor filler, although by now we all surely expect nothing less from an artist and producer so widely revered for consistent innovation and creativity. This exclusive album is an infectious and expertly mixed brew of layered , stabbing strings and dominant afro funk percussion. For a man known primarily for his large studio made excursions to the far reaches of the musical map, this is the expression of a mind blowing experience taking in just about as many genres as there are tracks. The pure genius of Maceo Parker sits alongside the likes of Patrick Adams, ‘Happy Frame of Mind » a 15’ multi section behemoth that starts off analogue disco and ends up sounding like a genuine P&P session ; judge for yourselves just how bloated and ludicrous is ‘You got to do it’ or if you can resist not moving while ‘Starsailor’ is on play mode. Listening to the expansive modular , analog synthetizer music that SP creates ob Escape from Planet Paolo revokes the music of the late seventies, as created by Mass Production, Slave, ADC Band, with a crucial difference : SP interaction with his fellow musicians are the defining feature of the sound. The world glimpsed on Escape from Planet Paolo is an incredibly vivid one. Touching upon his love of everything from Disco not disco to cosmic funk its easy to imagine your own movie when listening to With an album on the horizon which should hit stores in November 2008 this marvelous piece of modern disco will whet appetites early on and when it comes to making disco music sound utterly timeless but totally current there’s few who hit the spot like Paolo Guglielmino.
